After several Japanese promotional activities, members Choi Jonghun, Choi Minhwan, and Lee Jaejin were put into the sub group F.T. Triple. The reason was believed to help take up some Singing time during their concerts, so that lead singer, Lee Hongki, would not overstrain his voice. At one point in December 2008, main singer Lee Hongki's throat was having problems due to exhaustion, which lead to a several disappointing performances. Another reason was because of Lee's busy schedule with the filming of his drama You're Beautiful as well as Song Seunghyun's busy schedule. However, instead of Jaejin on vocals and bass and Jonghun on guitar, Jaejin now does the vocals and gitar with Jonghun playing the piano. Minhwan still plays the drums. Though the trio was unofficially announced at the Dream konsert in Jepun as "A3" (the "A" representing the three members all having blood type A), they wanted to keep the F.T. name, thus added "Triple" at the end of it to represent that it is a trio. F.T. Triple's first single "Love Letter" was released with F.T. Island's 2CD repackaged album "Double Date" as part of the saat CD "Two Date," which features all F.T. Triple songs. On November 14, 2009 in Seoul, F.T. Island kicked off their national tour, titled Men's Stories. They held a lot concerts focusing in Southeast Asia like Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai and On March 6, 2010, they held their konsert at Manila, Philippines at PICC Center. Their konsert ended successfully with the tickets in some countries were sold out just within one hour.
F.t Triple is a sub-group of F.T Island...since Lee Hong Gi and Song Seung Hyun were busy in their works Lee Jae Jin, Choi Jong Hoon and Choi Min Hwan united as F.T Triple but F.T Island is not separated!!!!
actually, since Hong Ki Oppa is very busy with his upcoming shows and he's currently curing his strained voice, they let him rest. suddenly, 3 of the members decided to make it, but they didnt remove the " FT" since that's were they started. But FT island is still a band and not separated
ft island is sub-ft island... the members is jonghun, minhwan and jaejin... it is cause fnc don't want hongki sing to much in concert... before this in a consert hongki had sore throat... after the konsert hongki have to stay at hospital cause is throat is so bad...
