Most male idol groups have so far adopted a pattern of enlisting one or two members at a time to avoid a complete hiatus, but F.T. Island say they want to try something different?
In a recent interview, F.T. Island's Hongki addressed the unavoidable topic of military enlistment. He relayed, "We've been thinking about enlisting together as a group. It may not necessarily work out that way... but from our perspective, we see ourselves enlisting together and then coming back as soon as we return. It'll be sad if we don't go together. Because we're a band, if one person is missing, we can't perform. If we put it that way, we may not be able to promote for almost 4 years. Since that means 4 years without playing our instruments and 4 years without interacting with our fans, it's a loss to us in many ways. Staying together as 5 seems more honorable."
