Biography

F.T. Island (Korean : 에프티 아일랜드), Five Treasure Island, or FTI, is the name of a South Korean rock ballad band. The name F.T. Island stands for ‘Five Treasure Island’, each of the five members being a treasure.[1] The band’s official color is yellow, and their fans carry yellow flags known as “pentasticks.” Their debut album, Cheerful Sensibility, was the sixth best-selling album of 2007 in South Korea.

F.T. Island’s first album was scheduled to be released commercially in May 2007.[2] However, instead of releasing the album as planned, all of the members appeared on a television program called “Dugeun Dugeun Yeochinmandeulgi” (Korean : 두근두근 여친만들기) on the Korean television channel MNet. The program title is officially translated by MNet as “Wanna Be My Girlfriend?” although “두근두근” refers to the sound a heart makes.[3] The band also performed on stage live at Rolling Hall and held their first official showcase at Live House Melon-AX, Gwangjang-dong in Seoul on May 27, 2007.[4] On June 7, 2007 F.T. Island performed their debut song on the music television program M!Countdown.[5]Not only this but also they amazed people by winning their first best song award on M!Countdown by beating top artists such as Dynamic Duo and Fly To The Sky in just 2 weeks after debuting.
