    I don’t have a bias no matter how hard I tried to get one. I love them all as a whole. They are just like their musical instruments. They are not suppose to be separated. They need one another to be FT Island.

  • sam UI

    Don’t take this comment too seriously.

    – Jonghun ideal type: “Instead of a princess image, I want someone who is comfortable and free like a boy. (That’s me.) Someone who doesn’t act cute (Totally me) and I want her to like Eric Clapton as I do. (I’m not a fan of Eric Clapton. But I’ll try.)”
    – Hongki’s ideal type: “I want someone with the opposite personality as me. (Me. But I don’t know if I can handle you oppa.) I wish she isn’t blood type O, (Well, sorry.) and I hope she can sing a duet with me. (Not sure about our voice combination.)”
    – Jaejin’s ideal type: Preferably an older girl (Noona), (Sigh. I’m younger than him.) cute and somehow shy. (I’m cute and shy but not in an attractive way.)
    – Seunghyun’s ideal type: ”I hope she’s not any taller than 163 cm. (I’m 5’2. I know. Shorty.) I want a short and cute girl. I want her to like the colors yellow and pink. (I’m sorry. But I cannot stand in the presence of those colors.) I really like Linkin Park and Hoobastank so it’d be nice if she likes that kind of music too.”
    – Minhwan’s ideal type: He revealed his ideal type is Apink’s Bomi. (I’m the opposite of Bomi. So, yeah. *cries in the corner*)

    @kpoopersunite:disqus Thanks a lot for the info and for providing the source, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • hagino

    I’m glad at least Hongki (who is my favorite band member) was not involved in any of these scandals. I’m glad none of my bias was involved at the moment. I didn’t expect Jonghoon to do that, but I was indifferent anyway about him, so it doesn’t hurt me. What hurts me is that FT Island’s image will suffer a lot from this

  • Hailz

    I’m confused I’m watching a video by dkdk saying jonghoon ! only temporarily stepped down from any activities till investigation is over keep hearing so many different things !

  • kat

    yeah can we NOT call it a scandal?? that’s not right, this is a CRIME, separate from the entertainment industry. this is real life, and the word crime deserves to be put under his name. it was confirmed that he did indeed share those videos so it should be put in here with the other information.

  • Greta Bazsik

    jungjoon? haha. joonyoung.

  • Julka Mec

    Hahaha It’s okey
    And you’re welcome

  • ionlystantalent

    hey! the “seungris chatroom” part is incorrect, please remove seungri from this! it was JJYs chat. seungri wasnt in the chat with illegal photos and videos, he was in a business chat!

  • Bebe

    Didn’t/doesn’t Hongki have this thing on Vlive and Youtube called “hackinssa” where he is/was the mc along with DinDin?
