FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki Responds To Being Called The Rebel Of The Idol Industry

On July 21, FTISLAND made their comeback on “M Countdown.”

In a short interview, Lee Hong Ki said, “The new song is very powerful but refreshing.” The group released their sixth studio album on July 18 and are promoting the title track “Take Me Now.”

The MCs (including CNBLUE member Lee Jung Shin) ask him if he likes his image as the “rebel” of the idol industry. “It’s not bad,” he said. “It’s unique, right?” He then asks his groupmates if they think they’re nice, and adds, “That’s why I got that nickname.”

The group also talk about their other nicknames that they got on their debut and make up new nicknames for each other.
