K pop boy group FT Island recently made an appearance on the variety show ‘Weekly Idol’. On their appearance, the boys touched on each members ideal types. This was their first appearance on the show in more than 3 years.
FT Island short for Five Treasure Island, is a five-member South Korean pop-rock band. The members are Choi Jong-hoon(guitar and keyboard), Lee Hongki (lead vocals), Lee Jae jin (bass and vocals), Song Seung-hyun (guitar , vocals and rap) replacing Oh Won-bin in 2009), and Choi Min-hwan (drums). Their debut album, titled "Cheerful Sensibility", was the sixth best-selling album in 2007. Their debut song "Lovesick" topped the K-Pop charts for eight consecutive weeks. F.T. Island is considered to be South Korea's first instrumental idol band. F.T. Island is also the first Foreign Male Band to rank top in the Oricon Daily Charts which is the first band to top the charts in 42 Years
While revisiting a past confession that Minhwan made in regards to his affection for A Pink's Bomi, the MCs asked the drummer once again to reconfirm his ideal type. Minhwan explained, "She wasn't my ideal type, but Bomi was someone who caught my attention the most out of all the groups. Right now, there isn't anyone really. I think that Bomi is the prettiest [still]."
Seunghyun then chimed in and blurted out, "Red Velvet, Irene," and followed up with, "Can I name one more person? Joy," bringing out the inner fan-uncles of Jung Hyung Don and Defconn. Next in line to reveal his ideal type was Jonghun, who revealed that he prefers EXID's Hani. Moving on, when the MCs asked the lead vocalist of his ideal type, Hongki said tiredly, "I don't really know these days... I don't know who's doing what these days."
Somehow, twisting his words, the slick MCs were able to conclude (on their own) Hongki's ideal type to also be Hani through wordplay (which you can find out in the clip). Lastly, bassist Jaejin quickly added that his current favorite female idol is Red Velvet's Yeri.
