FT Island Showcase In Singapore Next Month, Wonder Girls To Come Again?

Posted in News, Wonderfuls with tags , on May 30, 2009 by shanquan

11uapw5FT ISLAND SHOWCASE IN SINGAPORE NEXT MONTH

– Only 800 Tickets Up For Grabs!-

Despite the economy downturn, Korean 5-member band, FT Island, will be here in Singapore for a showcase next month as requested by local fans.

Ever since the Korean Pop Night Concert was held late last year, there wasn’t any performance by Korean artistes here in Singapore.

However, there are still many K-pop supporters around and due to the request of many fans, local entertainment company, Datzentertainment, invited Korean band, FT Island, here in Singapore to do a showcase.

The tickets are not selling just yet, but the organizer has already received several phonecalls from local and overseas fans.

According to the organizer, FT Island’s debut performance in Singapore will be held on 26th June at Dragonfly.

Though the tickets are for sale, due to space limitations, the organizer will only be selling 800 tickets, priced at SGD$100 each.

Person-in-charge commented that, “The current economy is bad and most of the fans belong to the younger age group, therefore we did not price the tickets too high.”

As to why FT Island was invited to Singapore, she explained that, “Local fans have been looking for organizers who can bring the band in to Singapore. We are just answering their requests and so far the response has been good.”

Though tickets are only on sale starting this Saturday (30th May), the organizer has already received several enquiry phonecalls from local and overseas fans.
Many overseas fans are worried that they cannot get the tickets as there are only 800 tickets for sale.

“The pressure is big because this is not only FT Island’s debut perfomarnce in Singapore, it is also our first time bringing in Korean artistes in to Singapore for performance. If the response is good, we might even consider bringing in Wonder Girls, SS501, or other Korean artistes to Singapore for performance.”

FT Island consists of 5 members, ranging from 17 to 19 years of age.
Since their debut in 2007, they have been receiving lots of attention from the music industry. Members include team leader Choi Jonghun, Lee Hongki, Oh Wonbin, Lee Jaejin and Choi Minhwan.

Production of Wonder Girls’ documentary, “Welcome to Wonderland” is drawing the attention of fans.

Mnet cable music channel will reveal the journey of Wonder Girls’ February concert in Thailand, including the performance in LA, the one day concert in Busan and also the 28th Seoul Concert with a documentary titled “Welcome to Wonderland”.

The meetings, dance choreographies and production etc. for the upcoming overseas performances in which JYP and the Wonder Girls will be participating in, will be shown in this documentary. It is a plan to reveal through the camera the whole process from the preparation of the concerts, to everything on the stage.

“Welcome to Wonderland” is a big revealing plan made in the form of combining reality and documentary to show the little things in the daily lives of the members, their faces without make-up and their natural and even more attractive life outside of the stage.

PD Shin Chun Ji of “Welcome to Wonderland” said: “Compared to the shine they have on stage, this is an opportunity to find out how many times more attractive the girls actually are”. “I hope to witness directly through my eyes the reason why Wonder Girls came to be the best girl group.” he expressed his thoughts.

The first broadcast of “Welcome to Wonderland” will be on 6th of March at 6pm.

With reference to the article.. i really understand what the PD is trying to say.. I remember JYP once said too, charms are an important aspect of a singer.. and I think this show will be able to show that..!
