Fly to the Sky releases Decennium, calls it quits


Hwanhee (left) and Brian have decide to part ways

Awesome duo, Fly to the Sky released their 8th album entitled Decennium (i guess it alludes to the duo being together for 10 years!) last month.

Brian and Hwanhee are now busy promoting their newly launched album and have been appearing on many Korean programs (television & radio), namely Lee Hana's Peppermint (6 March), Music Core, Love Request, Yashimmanman (9 March) and of course Mnet Countdown.

Hwanhee mentioned on Lee Hana's Peppermint that this will be their last album as Fly to the Sky. Brian will be moving on to an acting career, while Hwanhee will focus on his solo singing career (I actually thought it would be the other way around since Hwanhee has been appearing in dramas).

This sounds like an official split for FTTS. I was quite sad to hear this because i really really like this R&B duo. Brian's crisp clear vocals compliments Hwanhee's deep husky voice perfectly. Where else can you find such a match! It's such a joy listening to them that i am sad it has come to an end. When i mentioned this to Liz (who's also a fan of FTTS), she said "Ten years! That's enough-lah."

Okay guys, we wish you all the best in your respective solo careers! It wouldn't hurt if you come back together to perform a few of your old songs though -- once in awhile -- just to make us happy.

Here's Fly to the Sky's performance on Mnet Countdown, 12 March. They grabbed the number one spot with their new song Goosuk (구속) - from their new album, Decennium.

Buy Decennium!

OW! I was shocked by the news.. I thought they were a duo that will never break ups.. Brian once said, he wont be singing again if it wasnt wth Hwanhee and Hwanhee also felt the same.. but then i think things change.. maybe 10 years is their max.. oh i'm sad.. anyway, i wish them best of luck..

Liz said...

Whoo hoo Hwanhee still rocks. Am so happy to hear that Hwanhee will go solo. Yay!

Nice album. The packaging is super thick tho. lol

Can't wait for Hwanhee's solo.

They did mention that the will approach FttS as a project. So here's to hoping that they will make lots of projects together.

If anyone has a copy of Transition and wants to part with it, or see a copy of the album, let me know! That's still my favourite FttS album but I don't have a copy.

@Empress I did a search for TRANSITION (FTTS's 6th album) on YesAsia and it's all "out of print" (out of stock!)

They have a couple versions like a repackaged special, Digital Album and even the Taiwanese version all ran out of stock.

brian's facial expression while singing is killing me xD

Can't believe they are going to split already.
I wish they would stick around a bit longer considering I just started to be their fan last year and I want to see more of them.
But good luck anyway to these two and may they have a blessed career.

I was quite sad, because i'm only been their fans since their 7th album..but i hope one day they will comeback again..mini albums is fine, several occasions fine with me too...^_^ after all both of them have their own career they must think about. But once in while together and sing for us, won't hurt both of them..right...?? I'm waiting for that to happen. In the meantime, just support both of them in their individual careers just made me happy..
