“We took a while to come back to Singapore, but since it’s been a long time, our songs will sound even better (tonight),” FTISLAND’s lead singer, Lee Hong Gi grinned into the microphone. “We were worried that everyone would forget us after we didn’t come here for so long, so thank you all for coming tonight!”

The rock quintet made their grand return to our little red dot in almost three years with FTISLAND Live [THE TRUTH] in Singapore last Saturday. Their previous concert, FTISLAND 6th Anniversary [FTHX] Live in Singapore, was held in March 2014.

Their gig, which lasted for over two hours, saw the band perform hits from both their Korean and Japanese albums. Hong Gi was also in high spirits throughout the concert, despite having broken up with actress Han Bo Reum recently.

He announced the split during an Instagram Live session on February 8, where he said, “I don’t have a girlfriend (…) I’m alone. I’m sad.” His label, FNC Entertainment confirmed that the two went their separate ways.

FTISLAND makes grand return to Singapore

This year, being FTISLAND’s 10th year since debut, also holds special meaning for the group, who shared that they will be making full use of 2017 to show their fans and the public different sides of themselves. Thanking their fans for staying with them throughout their decade-long careers, the band chuckled that their Primadonnas (official fanclub name) have also aged 10 years with them.

While FTISLAND could make no promises on when they will be able to return to our little red dot, they promised to be back when they can – a declaration which was met by a roar of approval of the ever-energised crowd.

The group’s parting words to their Primadonna were familiar ones – a heartfelt “thank you” to the crowd which has stood by them throughout their ups and downs, and with their promise to continue making music for their fans for years to come, it’s only a matter of time before they reunite with their fans here once again.
