F.T. Island to perform live in Malaysia

Boyband F.T. Island is making their way to Malaysia in March!

The quintet will be performing live at the Sunway Lagoon Amphitheatre on March 30, 2008.

The boys will also be holding a meet-the-fans session on March 29, 2008 at Cineleisure Damansara. They will be autographing their repackaged album entitled The Refreshment, which will be released in Malaysia sometime in February.

Made up of teenagers, Five Treasure Island (F.T. Island) is a rock band that plays their own instruments. It comprises leader of the group Choi Jong-hun (17, guitarist), Lee Hong-gi (17, lead vocalist), Oh Won-bin (17, guitarist/vocalist), Lee Jae-jin (16, bassist) and Choi Min-hwan (15, drummer).

F.T. Island is being brought into Malaysia by C.I. Entertainment.

I've heard their songs and watched their performance but have never been quite bowled over by them. Watch the YouTube video above for a taste of F.T. Island.

oh, it's good they are coming here. i have their album and still can't get enough listening to them. actually in my personal view they are very talented enough rather than the new artiste popping out last year (sushi, wonder girls, etc). no offense, but i do really like their music a lot. they are cute but too much like a girl is not appealing to me.

Whoa, FT Island in Malaysia! Great! Can't believe they value Msian market that much, as the case with Suju concert. So sad that I wouldn't be at home and have to miss both concerts

Regardless if the music is rock or pop, i notice they all sing and sound the same. This is no rock band, but they're cute looking. =)

vrosemarie said...

I wish I could go but I don't like traveling alone... I love FT Island's Sarangalhee and I Saw Love... :) They actually play instruments... That's hot.

meiruo_chan said...

I think that might be a birthday present to jung-hoon and won-bin since their birthday is in March. I'm going to Genting Highlands on 30th March. Aish....but yes they can sing live. And very good at that. I like their tracks, Majung, Sarangalhee and Neo-eol-ddae-kkaji. Keep playing that songs since July, 2007. Hehe...

arinkorin said...

yeah, you're right.
not really a rock band.
but it's just the playing instruments thing that really differ them.
Wikipedia refers them as 'A South Korean instrumental band'. haha xD
ohh, haha. if you wanna see the rock side of them, might want to watch this: FT Island - Basketcase
but that's not really rock rite? haha. but they did perform Limpbizkit's song during their concert. haha. and that's rock right?

yeah. Wonbin's birthday is the nearest though. 26th March ^^

im excited! ^^

Hahaha birthday presents aside, I heard that this time there would be lots of interesting things planned for FT so I guess we just have to watch out for news on their website.

yup CI Ent. are new~ =)

Arin said...

the C.I Entertainment website is already updated with the concert info (seating plan, fan packages, contests etc)

it's quite affordable, i mean the concert ticket.

but i give up on the fan package >_<

Cassopiea said...

well... I had de feeling that C.I. Entertainment are followin the way SM Town provide TVXQ to all M'sia fans... ^^ anyway,F.T Island's members all r really cute n pwetty so is no doubt for all de gals to take a time to enjoy their live concert in M'sia... yipee* although I donno them well but I might wanna go to their concert to meet them if I can... Cause Nowadays many Koreans ady moved to M'sia n so in Asia-M'sia considered a important market to the Korea... ^^ welcome to M'sia ya boys...
