FT Island just released their latest Japanese song “Top Secret” so I just want to share with you all.

The song is okay but I do like how the video was made. The clothes matches the background even to the mic. The whole black and white theme also makes them look more mature.

How do you like it? Please comment and share.


I just came across this post where FT Island is learning English. It is very funny. I am surprised that Hong Ki’s pronounciation is very good. I can still remember that I can’t understand his English in a concert 2 years ago. I am sharing this video with you and I hope you like it.

Please comment and let me know how you like it.


Hi Primadonnas,

Just found all tracks of the 4th album of FT Island – “Grown Up” and want to share with all of you. I hope you will enjoy them. Since I already posted about the title song, so let’s start with track 2.

Which one is your favorite? Please comment and let me know. I like track 5 the most so far. Others might grow on me as I listen more though.

Hey all readers of Korean through Lyrics,

I am so happy! I just got my tickets to FT Island and CN Blue’s concert in Los Angeles! YEAH!!!

I got up early just to make sure I log in at 10am PST. At first I got on because I am very familiar with them. At 9:58am, it still says tickets are not available so I was patiently waiting untill 10am. I just kept refreshing the page or went to the home page and searched again. Finally when it came back with availability, it showed 3 VIP packages to choose from: Diamond VIP ($375), Platinum VIP ($85) and Gold VIP ($75). But the funny thing was the last two VIP packages did not include tickets. I wasn’t sure what’s going on and I had to choose one of the packages and click on “Find Tickets.” I didn’t know what to do but no matter which package I chose it didn’t have any. I am so confused. Since I was so eager to get the tickets, I decided to go to

FT Island and CN Blue’s concert icon is right at the center.

Cool! So I clicked on it and it showed me the ticket prices. Finally, something I could understand. So I picked the price and headed to fill out the rest of information to purchase the tickets. OK, so far so good! When I clicked on “Process Order” it took a long time to update the page, eventually it said “error processing.” OMG! So I clicked “Process Order” again. Same thing happened! Long processing time and came back with error. So I decided to try Ticketmaster again! Finally somehow I got to a page where I could see the ticket prices. So I was ordering there. I tried to see what’s best available at the time and the most expensive ones are gone! The best were the $150 tickets. Anyway, I ordered my tickets and I realized the total is higher than ordering on because Ticketmaster charges a higher convenience fee and processing fee. It’s actually double that of So I tried to order on again. You know, I have to juggle two pages open at the same time and see which one got me the tickets first. However, kept having processing error and in the end I just went with Ticketmaster even they had higher fees.

I am glad that I got the tickets. I guess there must be a lot of people trying to buy on and it just couldn’t handle the load. Ticketmaster has a higher fee but maybe that’s part of handling the traffic that they get on a daily basis. I don’t know. I am trying to not think about the higher fees and just focus on the fact that I am going to see FT Island! ^^

Anyway, you know how excited I am now. For those of you that are going, please leave me a comment and let’s meet up. For those that are not, you know for sure I will cover it here. Also follow me on Twitter as I will cover it live there during the concert. (^.^)

OK, now I have to prepare for the concert so expect lessons to come soon. I have to beef up my Korean so I can understand what they say at the concert. How exciting! ^^

Just found the new teaser for FT Island’s upcoming “Return” Album.

How do you like it? I think it’s just okay. Seems like the MV has an interesting story to it so let’s see if what the real story is when it comes out.

In this MBC’s Lunar New Year Special, Idol Star 7080 Best singer, various pop groups participated for several awards. Groups including 4minute, SHINee, Super Junior, miss A, Clazziquai, T-ara, ZE:A, Brown Eyed Girls, Sistar, After School etc. all joined for the fun to see who can do the best cover for the 70’s and 80’s songs.

FT Island actually got the King Singer! Yeah! Wouldn’t expect any less from Hong Ki! 😀 That’s the biggest award of the night! 🙂 I am actually just happy that FT Island gets more recognition for their singing ability.

Other awards like “Hot Performance Award” went to SJ’s Yesung, “Bronze Award” went to SHINee, “Silver Award went to “Sistar” and finally the “Gold Award” went to f(x)’s Luna and Clazziquai’s Alex.

This show seems to be a lot of fun. It’s actually good to see Hong Ki wearing his glasses. He usually try to do away with glass on screen. So it’s actually gives me a closer feeling to see him in glasses. 🙂 The same goes for Jaejin as well. But I think Jaejin looks really cute in this outfit. Maybe he should be born in the 70’s! ;-p What do y’all think? Please share with me by commenting below.


Are you all ready for Lunar New Year?  It’s a big celebration for the Koreans as well as Chinese.  FT Island was invited to Taiwan to record a special program for Lunar New Year called “2011 Asia Star Fight” at Taipei Arena on 1/26/11.

In the program, other than singing, they will also participate in games in teams along with other Chinese stars.

The tickets for this event is very limited.  There were only 15,000 of them and it was said that the price went up to 500,000won by scalpers.

When the band arrived at Taipei Airport on 1/26/11 and more than 200 fans went to see them at the airport despite the really cold weather.  Fans was so crazy that they broke the glass of the airport entrance.  It’s really crazy.

Here is a picture of FT when they arrived at Taipei:

This is the door that was broken:

That seems pretty crazy to me.  What do you guys think?
