This year, F.T Island was not seen much in Korea as they were busy with promotions in Japan. After successfully rising to third place in Oricon charts, this idol band group plans to make a comeback inKorea with a minialbum that will be released on the 25th.
Recently, member Lee Hong Ki held an interview with Sports Seoul regarding the new album. After several questions regarding the album, he was asked about CNBlue’s leader Jung Yonghwa. In response, Lee Hong Ki answered, “He is a good friend and rival that I often compete with. Although I debuted first, I am glad that Jung Yonghwa turned out so well. It might be because I experienced living as a celebrity first, but I understand how hard it must be for Yonghwa to go through such a busy schedule.”
Additionally, regarding CNBlue in general, Hong Ki expressed, “I am glad that CNBlue is working with us to promote a band type of music. When we see CNBlue, we become encouraged to work harder. I think that it is necessary to have a friendly rival. If we get the chance again, we want to perform with them together at a concert in the future.”
Meanwhile, F.T Island plans to comeback with their new title song Love Love Love composed by Kim Do Hoon and Lee Sang Ho.
