FNC Entertainment’s male idol rock band FTISLAND (에프티 아일랜드) will be performing in Malaysia this coming January! The boys will be coming to town as part of their “The Truth” Tour in Asia.
This is not the first time that the group has performed in Malaysia. In January 2012, they held their “Play!” concert at Stadium Negara, which was said to be a sold-out show.
Having made their debut in 2007, FTISLAND, which is an acronym for Five Treasure Island, consists of 5 members – leader Choi Jong Hoon, vocalist Lee Hong Ki, bassist Lee Jaejin, rapper and guitarist Song Seung Hyun (who replaces Oh Won Bin in 2009), and Drummer Choi Min Hwan.
The band’s first album, “Cheerful Sensibility”, which holds the title track “Love Sick” (사랑앓이), was the 6th best-selling album and they also won various awards that year, including the MNet.com Award and Best New Male Group at the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA).
Their most recent summer comeback track, “Take Me Now”, is co-written by frontman Lee Hong Ki and composed by Hong’s Tower, Lee’s music studio. To date, they have released 6 Korean studio albums including “Colourful Sensibility” (2008), “Cross & Change“ (2009), “Five Treasure Box” (2012), “I Will” (2015), “Where’s the Truth?” (2016).
