In the interview, Ma Dong Suk commented, “You know Lee Hong Ki? I was joking around about him being a part of CN Blue and then his expression sort of changed after that.”
Lee Hong Ki explained, “There is a lot of people who say that CN Blue and FT Island are similar. Actually, I am pretty close to the members of CN Blue – but since everyone around me keeps making comparisons a joke, it sort of gets to me.”
Ma Dong Suk empathized, “Ah, I think I know what you are trying to say.” Lee Hong Ki assured him, “FT Island and CN Blue are very close!”
