F.T. Island detailed their recent comeback on the August 5 airing of 'Sketchbook,' talking about why they opted for a hard rock sound and the song-making process under Hongki's production team Hong's Tower


Hongki explained, "I didn't know that our sound would become so heavy. There was a rough sort of feel [to the songs] before the editing process, but as we worked on them, they became heavier. It sounded awesome so we decided to stick with it."

Hongki also talked a bit about Hong's Tower, the production/song-composition team he himself formed and organized. He said, "There used to be seven people [on the team] but now there are four. Jaejin recently left the group." Jaejin, put on the spot, justified his leave with, "If you want to be a part of Hong's Tower, you have to pay the monthly rent to use the recording studio but it was too expensive so I just left." 


F.T. Island concluded their talk by expressing their desire to continue doing music even when they're above the age of 50, adding, "We hope that the band scene [in Korea] will rise again and that music will become more diverse."

I wonder if they will still plan on a double comeback this year. Maybe in the winter? I sure hope so, cause that would totally make my year complete.

Yeah, but they were meant to have 2 Korean comebacks. They always have at least 1 or 2 in Japan every year anyway. It's expected. I am awaiting more FT awesomeness to take over Korea. Plus I'm living here now. Of course I want more FT in Korea!
