People need to stop saying that Minhwan [FT Island] ruined Yulhee’s [Laboum] career. It was her decision to marry him and have a child. He did not force her to. I think both decisions were terrible, but she was an equal participant and is every bit to blame as he is for the situation they’re in. She doesn’t get off the hook because she’s female. She is an adult who can make her own decisions. They just may not have been the best ones.
Honki’s characters in Hwayugi and You Are Beautiful remind me so much of Baekhyun, I don’t know if it’s Hongki that reminds me of him or just his characters.
Some of FT Island’s best releases are the more unknown ones. Walking Dead, for example, is so beautiful sounding and barely anyone knows it. It’s almost disheartening. Almost their entire Japanese discography is stunning. I’m glad they’re getting more artistic freedom in Korea too.
I like FT Island’s Hongki’s voice, but for some reason I enjoy Jaejin’s voice a lot more. Something about it is just so much more pleasant to listen to for me. I understand that Hongki does have a stronger voice and I get why he’s the vocalist, but I just wish I could listen to Jaejin sing more.
I’m so happy for my Laboum bias. Now that she is dating F.T. Island’s Minhwan, I hope she doesn’t get any hate and a lot of love and support from fans. I will support you to the end, Yulhee!
FT Island is honestly the best group to introduce new kpop with because they are more rock based. FT ISLAND just seem like another awesome band to get into. I have used FT Island as my starting kpop group to show my friends who are really into Rock and Metal music. I have people who have really gotten in kpop because of them.
