FT Island Hong Kong Concert

Posted: May 8, 2010 in Uncategorized

Hi all,

Sorry for not writing for so long as I was in Hong Kong attending FT Island’s concert. Of course once I got back, I could’t wait to share with all my readers here about the whole experience. But apparently I was in FT Island coma and just couldn’t finish writing this post! OMG! The guys were so cute in person!

The concert was held in Kowloon Tong on the 6th floor of an exhibition center. Fans were lining up the day before and the line was long. The following picture would give you a sense of how crazy it was.

I arrived couple hours early but according to the line, I still arrived too late. πŸ™‚

Anyway, here is how the set up of the concert looked like.

Since it’s open seating and I was so far down the line, here was the view from my seat. Later you would find out the seat really didn’t matter.

The band started the concert with the song “F.T. Island”, of course!

Once the concert started, everyone just ran to the front of the stage and I did too! Then they said something to the fans. Let’s see what they said.

Then they sang a song that I didn’t really recognize. Can anyone of you help me?

After that they sang “Love Sick”:

The fans were totally crazy by now. Nobody was sitting down and the concert was getting out of control. The next song they sang was “Until you come back”.

By now, the concert was totally out of control and the band was called back to stage and the concert was paused. The organizer asked everybody to go back to their seats in order for the concert to continue. I have never seen any concert that has to pause to restore order. This was the headline of the newspaper the day after.

We all had to go back to our seats ’cause we wanted to continue to see FT Island! Then the band finally came back out and continued the concert. They started with their Japanese song “Raining.”

They then started doing lucky draw from the audience and 5 lucky fans would get a flower from one of the band members. A girl sitting next to me was so lucky to get picked and when she left she gave a hug to Jun hun. He was shocked! πŸ˜‰

Now again, they finally greeted their fans in English saying that it’s their first time in Hong Kong. Hong Ki was speaking in English but in fact none of us could understood him at the end. πŸ˜› Let’s see if you could. And then he went on to sing “Marry Me.”

Then they sang their recent hit “I hope”.

At the end of the concert, they sang the recent OST from Hong Ki’s drama “You’re Beautiful.” The fans were really crazy ’cause we all loved this song!

This was a very short concert that lasted for only one hour. No encore or anything. The band quickly left the venue after the concert.

On my way out of the concert, I took a picture of what’s selling at their concert.

Here the fans were leaving after the concert:

As fans were leaving, of course they didn’t miss the chance to take some photos with the banners of their favorite members. I didn’t think I could squeeze in so I didn’t try. :-p

It was really good to see FT Island performing live on stage for the first time. I had lots of pictures that didn’t work as they were moving a lot. I have only shown part of my collection. I hope it gave you all a sense of how the concert went.

Please leave me comments and let me know what you think. πŸ™‚

I will cover my next stop in Taiwan to attending their fan stamping event soon! And for those waiting for more Korean lessons, don’t worry. They are coming. Everyone knows FT Island is officially launching their first single “Flower Rock” in Japan on May 17, right?
