    Hi Grace

    Seung Hyun looks nice in all of them, yay! Not much difference among the 4 covers, but I think I like cover 3 best, ie the small one right at the bottom. Jae Jin looks so cute in that one!

    One of their Japanese songs that I really really like is “Treasure”, from their Brand New Days album. All of them have their own solo parts and then at the end they all sing together. Can see them singing in the MV and they all have very nice voices. But of course Hong Ki’s voice is still the most powerful. The song “Treasure” doesn’t really need powerful vocals, so I guess that’s why they can all take turns to sing it. Wish they had a few more songs like that. It’s nice to see and hear the rest singing, esp in the MV.
    Have you seen it? What do you think?

      Hi Janie,

      I have seen the MVs. I like them. It’s actually good for the five of them to sing together. If they were to compare to Hong Ki, theirs might not be as powerful but could be suitable for soft love songs. 🙂

    Hi Grace

    I have wonderful news to share. FT Island is having a concert in Seoul next weekend and I’m going for it!!!! I’ve booked the concert tickets (both Sat and Sun!), plane tickets and hotel. I’m so excited…. can’t quite believe I’m going to see them perform live soon!

      Hi Janie,

      Are you serious? OMG!! Where do you live? Is it far to go to Korea? You are so lucky! How much is the ticket? I am so jealous! Please take lots of pictures and if you could, would you like to write a guest blog and tell our readers about it? That would be awesome!!! You are going for two days? that’s so awesome!!!! I wish I could go. But for me, I have to plan a little further in advance since I live far away. I hope you will have lots of fun!!!

      Go have Halloween with FT Island!!! Don’t forget to take pictures!!!

      Grace \(^.^)/

    Hi Grace!

    Haha you sound more excited than me! It’s NOT this weekend (Halloween), but NEXT weekend (Nov 6th and 7th). I saw the news about their Seoul concert on a k-pop website and I realised it’s actually quite possible for me to go for it. So I quickly swung into action and booked everything over the internet! The concert tickets are cheap compared to what I have to pay in my country–only 77,000 won per ticket. (that’s less than US$70 I think)

    I live in a very small country in South-east Asia where English is our main language.
    Can you guess where?…………..
    It’s Singapore! Seoul is about 6 hours away by plane. I will be there for 4 days. Planning to do some shopping as well! And eating delicious Korean food!

    This is their Beautiful Journey Concert (they are having another one in Busan end of Nov). I will definitely be taking lots and lots of photos! Oh this is all so unreal! I don’t know what to expect. You went for one of their concerts, right? Did you bring along a big sign saying We Love U or something like that? I don’t know if I should make some sign to take along with me for the concert to show support from the English-speaking world.

      Hi Janie,

      Of course I am excited for you!! It’s going to be fun!! Seventy dollars is a lot of money for a concert but I paid even more! I think for people who have to travel anyway, it’s cheaper to travel to Korea to see them. If you travel to a city where they have to travel too, that’s more costly. That’s my mistake. It’s not the best when I had to go to Hong Kong to see them. Next time I will go to Korea. The concert ticket price is cheaper.

      I think FT has been to Singapore before. Did you see them there? It’s nice to meet a Singaporean here! 😉 I love Singapore. The food is so good there!!! FT Island has a big fan base in Singapore as far as I know. Do you know lots of other fans there? Don’t forget to show off your Korean when you are in Korea since you have been learning so much. Is this your first time to Korea? Is someone going to Singapore with you? 🙂

      So when you come back, I definitely would like you to write something about the concert and post here! That will be so exciting!!!! When I went to their Hong Kong concert ( that’s because I couldn’t get the ticket to the Taiwan concert), I didn’t bring any sign. I didn’t think anybody did or they must not allow it or something. The concert was so small. But I was in Taiwan to their stamping event, lots of people brought signs. I was just too shy to bring their attention to me. 🙂 But you should do that. Please show support from us, the English-speaking world!!!

      I am really excited for you!!! You will have a good time. Do a lot of shopping in Korea. Things are nice and relatively cheap. And the food!!!! Yummy!!! It might be pretty cold in November so bring warm clothes, ok?

      Grace \(^.^)/

    Hi Grace

    Oh you’ve been to Singapore? I’m surprised cos it’s so far from you! Thanks for liking my country. Yes, we do have very good food, if I may say so myself!

    Yes, FT Island has been here a few times but at that time, I did not know about them yet. I’m a very new fan and that’s why I also haven’t gotten to know any other fans here. Actually FT Island was here just about a week ago for a K-pop concert, with 6 other groups like Big Bang, Shinee and SNSD. The tickets were expensive, so I didn’t go. Didn’t want to pay so much cos FT was only singing 3 or 4 songs, and I’m not a fan of the other groups. Well I’m paying a lot more to go to Seoul to watch them but I’m sure it will be WORTH IT!

    I was in Korea a few years ago with a tour group. Had a tour guide bringing us around, had really good food and we also did some skiing. It was a very nice holiday. This time will be a rather different sort of holiday! I’m quite excited to try out my newly-learned Korean. A friend is coming with me, but not for the concert. She’s not that into FT, she’s just there for the shopping and the food! So I’ll be going for the concert alone.

    Will definitely tell you all about it when I come back! But how I wish they would have a stamping/ signing event….. you’re SO LUCKY to have been to one, to see them so close and to talk to them…. sigh.

    Hi Grace

    I’m in FT Island heaven…… Just finished watching their Beautiful Journey concert for the 2nd time. It was AWESOME!!!! The concert hall was not very big, and so even tho I booked my tickets very late, I was quite close to the stage (all standing on 1st level. Seats are on 2nd level). It was just AWESOME to see them perform live and so close! TOTALLY AWESOME!! Oh how I wish it would never end!

    And I bought so much FT Island stuff!…. FT Island CDs, DVD, bag, files, notebook, pens, pencil-case, cup, cushions, 2011 calendar, and even socks! OMG I’m really in FTI heaven……

      Hi Janie,

      Great to hear that you enjoyed your time in Korea! You seemed to have great seats to the concert! That’s great! I want to know more. Any pictures?

      There were also a lot of FT Island stuff that I saw on sale. I bought some but not all. Can you take pictures of everything you bought? I want to see! I saw socks of FT Islands but they were more like for kids so I didn’t think I would fit. But I definitely want to see your collection!!!! 😉

      Waiting…

    Hi Grace,

    It’s me again. I’m at Incheon Airport, going to fly home soon. Will tell you more about the concert when I get back. HongKi’s voice was amazing! Sounded so good live! And my fave Seung Hyun was just dreamy……sigh. They all looked really good. Ok will talk again.

    Janie

    • mwgrace says:

      Hi Janis,
      Welcome home! Please do tell me more about the concert. I can’t wait! Hongki’s voice is always good!! Why don’t you write a guest post and share with everyone? 🙂

      Grace

    Hi Grace

    You’re so right. Hong Ki’s voice is always good! Really amazing vocals!

    One great thing about the concert is that you get to hear the others a bit more. They chip in to sing some parts so that HK doesn’t over-strain his voice. So like for Baby Love, Min Hwan sang the first verse! Seung Hyun sang the 2nd verse and HK sang the chorus and the rest of the song. And Seung Hyun sang First Kiss!!! I almost melted right there and then! He sang the first part in Korean, then Hong Ki sang the 2nd part in English and SH harmonised with him. They sounded so good together! I’ve got it on video using my camera.

    I want to show you my photos! But I’m not good with computer stuff =( How do I do a guest post and share with everyone? How to show you my photos? Should I email you or something?

    Janie

    • mwgrace says:

      Hi Janie,

      It’s great to be able to hear the other members sometimes even my favorite vocal will still be Hong Ki. 🙂 But there others relatively softer voice will be good for love songs. 🙂 And it gives Hong Ki a rest so that is great.

      Why don’t you write up your experience in word or any text format document and email to me together with the pictures? I am really interested in seeing what you bought!!! 🙂 I will email you my email address! 🙂 Can’t wait! Welcome to my first guest blogger!!! 🙂

      Grace
