FT Island marks its 6th year
“We would love to deliver sincere appreciation to fans as we celebrate the sixth anniversary, and we will bring even better music,” the five-member group said.
The much-loved group made its debut in 2007 with “Love Sick” and has released four regular albums and four EPs in Korea. It has allotted a lot of time to meet with fans in Japan, as it has released two regular albums and 10 EPs there.
Also, it has had more than 15 overseas concerts each year throughout countries in Asia and North America.
The group is scheduled to release its third album in Japan on Wednesday, titled “Rated-FT.” The band members are in Japan to promote their upcoming album, whose title song is “Freedom.”
The album includes 11 songs, which many members helped write and compose. Choi Jong-hoon wrote and composed “Hold My Hand,” while Lee Hong-ki did the same for two songs, “Orange Sky” and “Black Chocolate.” Lee Jae-jin also contributed his talents for the song “Time To.”
Three days after the album release, the band will start a large-scale national tour to perform 11 times in seven venues.
