F.T. Island might be coming back in July!

During the boys' 'V' app, Hongki had talked a bit about their new album, revealing that all the songs were self-composed by members. He joked, "I think I was going to die recording the song Jaejin made." Insiders had then revealed that the group would be coming back in July, which seemed to be confirmed by Hongki when he posted an article about their July comeback on his Instagram.

However, it seems FNC Entertainment might have something different to say, as they told Star News, "F.T. Island is coming back in the second half of the year. But their comeback date is still unconfirmed. The members themselves talked about their comeback on 'V' app, and they're talking about their comeback date with the label. The songs on the albums have to be prepared, so we can't say for certain when they will come back. Please wait a little."

What do you think is going on?

  1. F.T. Island

What do I think? I think that FNC is at it again.  FNC is using their position to show FT Island who will be in change.  FNC is not always right when it comes to the music that FT Island wants to make.  Their most successful and acclaimed album internationally was the  “ I will “ album because it was good rock and different and fresh not cookie cutter like other K pop idol groups. But FNC fought the boys over that album and delayed it too. Over and over again FNC treats the band differently than it’s other group mainly because the Men and I do mean MEN of FT Island are grown up artist who want to make music their way like any talented mature artist wants to make their music, by controlling the sound they produce.  They will not be told what to do and how to make their music.  I say that FNC should just let FT Island be the talented musician they are and make the sound they want to make.  Enough is enough, as a fan I want to to hear the new music now not sometime in the future.  Get real FNC get out of the way of FT Island.  Let them be the talented men that they are.

to who is this directed?

'Please wait a little.' That seems way too long FNC. Dammit FNC have a little more appreciation towards your 1st founding group!

ajshawol1990 Sunday, June 12, 2016

So much for the group leaving FNC!

Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

And that link you said Hongki posted on his instagram in your article - that's not what Hongki says. That's what FNC says!!!! Hongki just took a picture of FNC's official article published on Korea's no.1 internal portal 'Naver'. That's FNC's official stance as at 10 June on FT's comeback. I'm sure that Star News thing is outdated and you just created a scene based on incorrect, outdated news!! Have you confirmed the dates at all before posting up this article? How unprofessional!!!!!

Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

OK. I just went to Naver and searched for the Star News article mentioned above. The date was exactly the same - 10 June. What the hell.... But the thing is that the July comeback article was linked on the main section of NAVER for almost all day long and that's why Korean netizens all believe FT's July comeback is official. If it was not confirmed by FNC, FNC would have released a correction article refuting FT's July comeback but they didn't. Also, FT is due to release their Japanese single on 17 August. So it makes much more sense that their Korean comeback is in July, based on their schedule.

dmalpieri Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

Thanks a lot for all these informations!

Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

All incorrect!! Who the hell did write this article on There is no such article published in Korea. In fact, the FNC has already announced on 10 June that FT's comeback will be in July with all self-composed songs just like their last year's 5th Korean album 'I WILL'. Dear allkpop staff, please do not distribute incorrect information. It undermines your credibility. Nobody will believe you if you keep doing that!!!

primazaza Sunday, June 12, 2016

July is a part of second half of the year and FTISLAND has already finished recording their songs. They usually make au comeback in Korea before Japan and they will have a single in Japan released in August. Agencies generally deny the truth to confirm it later (which is amazing is that they take time to talk about FTISLAND so it's a good sign).

Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

Seriously... FNC is becoming the new SM specially when it comes to FT Island... I'm a Boice and I really hate the difference of how FNC treats Cnblue and FT Island ><" I'm thankful that Hongki always speaks the truth and tries to do something about this mess. FNC, you already lost Juniel (who had capacity and talent to be much bigger than you made her), are you forcing FT to leave as well?!? It would be the most stupid thing ever... Not only because they are the reason why the agency became acknowledged, but specially because of their passion, potential and talent.

Catlover12 Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

They wouldn't let FT go. FT is currently contributing to 30% of FNC's sales after CNBLUE (35%). FNC is a publicly listed company now and its financials are available to the public.

someonesomewhere Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

sure you are a boice ?? with that dp? dont find you on talked about cnblue, support or whatever in cnblue articles, just all of sudden appear pretend to be boice. just dont do that. that remind me of GRST fansite that pretend to be fan of xxx, say im fan of xxx but im disappointed of xxx.

BOICE_CNBLUE Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

if ftisalnd wanted to leave they would've done that already stop acting like you now how it works u know nothing hongki said before that they won't have as much opportunities as they have in FNC if they leave cuz companies don't want to investigate that much in bands and also ftisland won't be able to see others contries and all that stuff so get your fact plz !!! and shit how can u pretend to be a boice even primadonna didn't include cnblue in their comments why would u then???!!!! why every article about ftisland should have cnblue in it ?? during cnblue's comeback only the members and the fans were promoting fnc just posted like some teasers... all cnblue's activities they have now are cuz they get the offer not that FNC is promoting them and also FNC is a company that works for money not a charity company ...the comment u posted just make ftisland look pitiful while they are not they are a tallented band with great vocal and fans that support them so stop your "boice" thing cnblue and ftisland are good friends and because of people like u others will think they're ennmies sure they are rivals but friend did u see jonghyun in their 9th anniversary did u see jongshin supporting their comeback during "pray" did u ever see minhwan supporting cnblue during "you're so fine" so STFU i could say more things but well i don't think it will change anything in your mind ......

Yse_M someonesomewhere Sunday, June 12, 2016

Yes, I am '-' Since "Heartstrings"... I don't think that there's a law saying that you are able to belong to only one fandom... And I already commented on Cnblue articles. They are the group that made me get into kpop... So do you get? Forever my first love ^^ Well, but it is up to you believe or not. Have a great day ♡

Yse_M BOICE_CNBLUE Sunday, June 12, 2016

Well, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the queen of the knowledge and I never said that that my comment was the "only truth of the world". It definetively wasn't my intention to make FT Island look pitiful, specially because I'm sure that they aren't. And I never meant to say that Cnblue and FT Island are ennemies... I know that they are good friends. Sorry if my words weren't self explanatory and made you misunderstand my point of view. And I am pretty aware that they are freaking talented (I even said it on my comment) and that they have many fans (I have friends who are Primadonnas) ^^ Sorry once again for the misunderstanding. It wasn't my intention. Have a great day~

someonesomewhere Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

oot who talking about law on intl net LMAO . yes because hardcore boice are stay out to comment from this article. only you insist in ths article about fti etc. none of boice willingly to set themself to this article. so clearly fake by acted out as boice, that official fandom of cnblue. boice with other group member dp tsk tsk. and dont even know jonghyun was in their 9th anniversary party, or jongshin supporting comeback during "pray" LMAO so fake. see, even hardcore boice never claimed themself as boice. LMAO. support your favourite idols instead faking around mess other official fandom. GRST fansite scandal seem to be true happen outside korea

someonesomewhere Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

and nope you dont show up on cnblue articles. stop lying again.

someonesomewhere Catlover12 Sunday, June 12, 2016

i read that in 2015, 60% of fnc revenue came from jung yong hwa.

Yse_M someonesomewhere Sunday, June 12, 2016

Okay... I don't even know why I'm answering you when it's obvious that you are here just to fight and attack me. I don't comment usually on articles, just when I want to. And I'm sure that you didn't read all the comments of the articles about Cnblue that exist on allkpop... C'mmon stop attacking people and respect others opinion... You're not a machine of the truth and none of the Cnblue members named you as the "the person who says who is a boice or not". I hate to correct people, but I can't let it go... The name of our maknae is Jungshin. Seriously... Go spread some love or update your display picture (this part seems to be really important for you)... It's much better than spend your time answering me. I don't know where you live, but where I do exists something called "freedom of speech" ^^ And when did I say that I wasn't aware of these stuff?! ㅋㅋ Just like I said before, Have a great day~

Yse_M someonesomewhere Sunday, June 12, 2016

And whe did she/he say that they weren't aware of these stuff?!* (correction, sorry)

someonesomewhere Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

well read @BOICE_CNBLUE wrote to you. he/she so angry by bringing up or pretend to be boice. meanwhile none boice will ever do comment in this article. out of sudden a non boice pretending boice by saying i am a boice bla bla bla while none of real or hardcore boice throw themself in this article because things are going on fire after previous article. Speaking of respect, real boice are rn respect their fandom itself by not commenting. cmoonn stop saying nonsense as boice. seriously, its much better for you as bts fan or whatever fans say those support words to ft. that's more sensible. dont bother to correct grammar thingy we're not in english class lmao. go spread love to ft using your real fandom. freedom of speech ㅋㅋㅋㅋ more excuses boice cosplayer. i always have great day

someonesomewhere Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

And whe did she/he say that they weren't aware of these stuff?!* (correction, sorry) --- ????? lmao

someonesomewhere Yse_M Sunday, June 12, 2016

wanna see how far you will going with this. tbh it's far from boice style. oh yea i forget you are not a boice official or non official ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

someonesomewhere Sunday, June 12, 2016

last one, go check yourself. so active in many boybands threads, and none of cnblue, boice for real ?? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ and check yourself in at least 10 last articles of cnblue, where were you, sick or hiding until next ft article ? give excuses more? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

Catlover12 someonesomewhere Monday, June 13, 2016

I don't think so.... You said in 2015, 60% of FNC's revenue came from Jung Yong Hwa?? Well, it's not only incorrect but also logically impossible. Here are the facts from FNC’s official financials (just like Form 10-K in the US) publicly lodged on FSS: 35% commercials & commissions (FNC has many of Korea’s top-tier MCs like Yoo Jae Suk & AOA’s SulHyun shot 7-8 commercials in 2015), 40% concerts (this includes all of FTIsland+CNBLUE+JYH’s solo concerts ie. Hongki’s solo concerts will be booked in 2016), 10% albums (FTIsland+CNBLUE+AOA+JYH), 10% commercialized products & Hongki’s Skullhong, 5% FNC’s production of Korean Soap opera ‘Who R U’

Catlover12 Monday, June 13, 2016

As you can see, it's mathematically impossible for JYH to contribute to 60% of FNC's sales alone. FYI, in 2015, FT did 18 concerts in Japan & 5+ concerts in Asia. Meanwhile, CN did 9 concerts in Japan, 14 concerts in Asia. JYH did about 15 solo concerts but solo concerts are normally smaller in size (2000-5000 ppl), which is about one third or one half of CNBLUE group concerts. Also, FNC held 6 family concerts called FNC Kingdom (all of FT, CN, AOA & N.Flying perform together) in HK, Korea & Japan. So, if you said, JYH must have earned the most money in FNC in 2015 (it was Hongki in 2014), then you'd be correct. But if you said JYH contributed 60% of FNC's total revenue? Well... not true.

BOICE_CNBLUE Catlover12 Saturday, June 18, 2016

Maybe she he got confused cuz once jyh said (jokingly ) that he wants 70% of the income of FNC for just himself... 😁😁😁😁during CDD111 i think
