FT Island′s Min Hwan Cried When Stage Had No Drum Sets
FT Island members shared their experiences performing as a band in Korea.
When FT Island’s members guested on December 13’s broadcast of KBS’s Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook, they said, “As there is an increase of idol band groups these days, we have been getting more calls from places that stage live performances.”
But performing live on broadcast is still a difficult task for bands like FT Island.
FT Island’s Min Hwan shared his experience of crying alone in a bus going home, as he was turned away from the stage that lacked a drum set.
The members also expressed their regrets as the camera only shoots Lee Hong Gi, the vocalist. Jong Hoon also said the camera only gets his hands playing the piano while the group performs Madly.
In order to fulfill their desire to sing on stage, Jae Jin, Seung Hyun and Min Hwan have been appearing in musicals and hope to continue performing on musical stages.
Lee Hong Gi also shared the group’s goal in the future, which is to hold a rock festival concert, but he feels the time is not ready since most of FT Island’s songs are ballads and they need more time and experience to mature as a band.
