HEADLINE

Gayo Daejun incident

During the Gayo Daejun’s festival at the very end of 2008, F.T. Island performed on the festival of SBS. Because of the busy schedule, Hong Ki fell sick. He suffered from fatigue, exhaustion and problems with his voice. However, he continued to perform, resulting that he lost his voice gradually. Later on, he fell and was rushed to a hospital to get medical treatment. Netizens affirmed first that this was “unprofessionalism” of Hong Ki, but then the assumption changed after they knew about his illness. Hong Ki himself felt ashamed with that incident and had publicly apologized to everyone.

Oh Won Bin quits the band

Former Member Oh Won Bin officially left the group on January 28, 2009.The sudden incident and the fast member replacement created questions among the fans. FNC Music later stated that his withdrawal was because of “differences in music” to subsidize the raising rumor, which was “disharmony between band members”. Won Bin himself has said that he is pursuing a solo career and is currently in training as a trainee again in the same company.

Choi Min Hwan fainted

Youngest member Choi Min Hwan fainted on the 23rd March during shooting his drama. He was quickly taken to the hospital where he received treatment. Nothing serious happened and he was able to leave early the next day. F&C stated that he had become increasingly tired because of his music activities and his drama. In addition, he had caught a serious cold and seemed to have overworked himself.

F.T. Island stranded in Cebu

F.T. Island, in Cebu (Philippines) on September 25 to film their new Japanese single “Raining” music video. However, they were left isolated due to this sudden crisis of the typhoon as it is typhoon season in Philippines. Upon receiving this news, F&C company called to check if anything had gone wrong, only to be met with no signal. During the crisis, radio contact was lost due to damage caused by the hurricane, thus cutting off any connection with the crew. Fortunately, F&C Entertainment eventually made contact with the crew that afternoon and was able to breathe a sigh of relief with the report that everyone was safe. The filming was shortened by a few days and F.T. Island flew back to Korea, arriving safely.

Oh Won Bin’s project with F.T. Island Lee Hong Ki

Oh Won Bin, ex-member of F.T. Island, participated in Lee Hong Ki’s drama “You’re Beautiful” OST. Along with Miss $, Oh Won Bin sung the cheerful second track titled “하늘에서 내려와 (Coming Down from the Sky)”. Even before the album was released, this particular song has received lots of attention. Won Bin’s participation created many speculations among netizens: he might return to the band, he has projects together with F.T. Island members, a new start of his solo career, or he just wants to support his old band mate. No official comment has been made yet.
