FT Island likes to keep it simple and sweet with ‘I wish’


I heard the live version of this song in this week’s SBS Inkigayo which ultimately made me search for the video and kaboom here springs a review!!

FTI have some strong points and some weak points! One of their strong points is their Music! I felt the pull even though the song ‘I wish’ is not my genre of music. They have good vocals too in the form of LEE HONG KI! The song and video ‘I wish’ was completely Hong Ki centred but it did not make me feel weird. I loved how Hong Ki carried the whole song. In fact in my eyes I could not see the other members at.. Sorry guys! I swear it is Hong Ki’s fault. He is like a life size cartoon character.


I knew Hong Ki was cute from watching You’re Beautiful and other variety shows but I could never guess he can also pull this cuteness factor in love songs too!!

I officially add Hong Ki into the list of irresistible cute idols along with these guys!

Excuse my spazzing over Hong Ki!

But sadly I wasn’t completely satisfied with ‘ I wish’ Since it is the title song of the albume ‘Five treasures’ I expected the video to be a tad more interesting than this. Honestly the video did not do justice to the song. If this video was released as one of the extra MVs I would have been happier but the problem was it lacked the ‘Title’ song material. But it did have some plus points not a complete pushover.


As I previously stated the song hooked me and the lyrics was not rocket sciene! It is pretty simple..

You’re so pretty, I want you
You’re so nice, I want you
I usually don’t look at girls but why am I acting this way, like a fool?

Every single day, I only think of you
Even when I close my eyes, I only think of you
Each time I see you, my heart trembles and I can’t breathe

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh my love
I wish your love was me uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

Even when I’m meeting someone else, I only see you
Even when I’m thinking about something else, I only see you
Even when I see someone else, I have no interest
Why am I acting this way, like a fool?

I guess it’s love – I can’t catch a wink of sleep
I guess I love you – I keep thinking of you
When I meet you, I get happy like a kid

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh my love
I wish your love was me uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

I love you, love me – believe me, believe me
I can do anything for you uh uh uh
No matter how much you try to find someone special
No matter how much you try to find someone like me, there won’t be anyone else

Can you see my heart? Can you hear my heart?
Please accept my pure love oh
I’m here, waiting and waiting for you
I only love you alone

Baby, I wish it was you, I wish it was so
Love me love me, oh look at me
I wish my other half was you uh uh uh uh uh uh
Baby, I wish it was you, I wish it was so
Love me love me, oh I love you
If it’s not you, I don’t wanna be in love uh uh uh I love you

Baby, I wish it was me, I wish it was so
Lonely lonely oh, love me
I don’t wanna be alone anymore uh uh uh I love you

The music score for this clearly displayed the band members talents. While the song itself was carried by very strong vocals by Hong Ki the music which was oddly catchy was led well by the guitar and drums. I esplecially loved the drum piece by Min Hwan. And the opening with guitar provided just the right note to begin with.

Just stating again!! I LOVE THE DRUM BEATS!!!!!!!!!! *Ok am done lol*

And the slightly slow rapping towards the middle by Jaejin was such a cool diversion too. Will give my full votes to the song.


Moving onto the video I felt FTI wanted to keep it simple because their song is simple. I dunno what this logic is anyways what happens is Hong Ki is feeling sad that the girl he loves doesn’t pay any attention to him but is cuddling  close with the other members of his band. One major turn off in this video was the  GIRL! She looked bored most of the time and not even half amused when all these cute guys shower her with attention. Yeah maybe she does look lik a hybrid of IU and Yoona but that doesn’t mean she can jus pass off the whole video with the expression ‘Why am I even here??’

She practically made me ask Hong Ki “Hong Ki ah open your eyes! Your fans will give you more expression than her!”

This GIF basically sums up the girl’s attitude in the MV! Especially when the singer goes all puppy eyes and confesses by placing her hand on his heart her face was “Am bored! NEXT”

Poor Hong Ki!

Come here Hong Ki! I shall take you along with those adorable dork glasses and all! keke!

Now that I have ranted about the complete absence of emotions on the girl I have to talk about FTI’s very own energy bunny! Lee Hong Ki!

As much as I was irked by the girl I stuck through video cos of Hong Ki’s vivid facial expressions. His dorky dance moves and his expressions in the middle was just too endearing! FIST SQUEEZE!!

And he also accessorized with some different hair bands which just made my day!

I think the entire concept behind this MV was that FTI was jus a normal band out doing a gig and the song they were singing involved the singers past experience with one of his crushes who found him not that much attention worthy. I dont know what HK saw in that girl honestly as she practically dates or hangs out with everyone but gives him the cold shoulder! GOSH!! In ways Love is Blind to faults I guess!

Video could have been better but I really enjoyed the song and survived the video cos of HK and his antics! His life performance had more actions from him lol!! Do check this cutie guys! Cant really say much for the members cos as I said I felt others blended to the background and HK was the main focus in my eyes. He did his role justice by showing how he liked the girl!

Fashion wise FTI has a long way to go! U can do it guys!! I liked HK’s wardrobe except maybe one of the pants he wore! Seriously Printed pants??!!! It could have been better with a better female lead and a stronger concept!


Confessions of a kpop fan

Before travelling down to the the kpop town I used to be a die-hard addict of old school rock music.  The western music of nowadays is getting exceedingly meaningless and does attach to my soul and emotions.I am nearly maxed out of all the abusive(sometimes meaningless) R-rated rap lyrics.I am not an antifan of rap or anything;in fact I am a fan of the genre but in the current rap scenario most of the songs are just plain swearing!! It is fun for a while to listen to the f- words. But after a while it has become brain tiring and left me completely shallow. I cannot sing these songs in public nor can I understand most of it.

Like anything under the sun there are deviations from this current stereotype. What about “Millionaire” by Travie? Thanks to the lyrics penned by Bruno Mars the lyrics are truly enjoyable-there are swearing here and there still the song is meaningful. I wish all songs that comes make sense like this one! For some time now I am totally stuck on classic seventies western music.
Omg! Forgive me rambling! Coming to point -what gets me hooked up on kpop?
I would say the first thing is the feel and emotions conveyed through the song. Nearly all the kpop artists have mastered the art of seducing our emotions-I think its their innate talent. They talk to you even without needing a language.
When I hear a Korean song – I wouldn’t understand the lyrics but I would still get the feel of the song. Without even trying the chorus and beat gets stuck in my mind! Then I browse and find the English lyrics of the song which pulls me even closer to the song.

Another diamond of kpop is the mv! From flawless choreography to interesting costume concept kpop tries to deliver the best.
The key aspect which makes the kpop stand out is the fan services. I haven’t seen any western artists connect to the fans as much as the Korean artists do. The variety shows the stars so not only brings them fame but also ties up better relationship with the fans.
The kpop artists have pained and strained for years to debut. They have not sprouted just like a mushroom in rain rather have been nourished by years of training.

After the idols do become popular celebrities their schedule gets packed up and they seldom get time for their personal stuffs. They sacrifice nearly every aspect of normal life.these kind of sacrifices and dedication wins the sentiments of the fans.
The next big thing of kpop is the social networking. Most of the idols are active in social networking sites like Twitter, weibo etc and keeps the fans updated. This plus all the fan clubs, fanbases and blogs like ours driving the hallyu wave ,it is hitting the world faster than the tsunami! Dont you agree?

K-Guys Fairy ‘Tails’

Here is a wonderful Korean Fairy Tale(Tail) about the K hotties!

Once upon a time in Hottie K-Town there was a man so perfect he was called walking sculpture..

His long hair HEATED UP during summer and so he decided to pin it up.

Give it up for Kim Hyun Joong!

Meanwhile in the K-town six pack club a Suju hottie Choi Siwon was working out and he had on his ‘gym’ ponytails!

Heart Skips a beat!!

The SHinee Super Juniors Minho and Leeteuk while singing sexily at the Karaoke bar decide to sport couple ponytails!

Seeing this Donghae also wanted to join in the fun! He stole a mike and Leeteuk’s neck bow and started grooving to the music!

And finally it was Picture time!!Yesung joined Donghae and took cute couple ponytail photos!

Next day Lee Hong Ki saw Leeteuk having energy drink by himself and he got upset that Leeteuk did not share with him! sob sob!

To the rescue comes Power Buff Guyz Jang Keun Suk(Blossom), Rain (Bubbles) and Heechul (Buttercup)! They buy an ice-cream for their cute dongsaeng!

Hongki loved the ice-cream so much that he wore an ice-creamie pony tail!

Peace once again reigned in K-Town!

All the K-fan girls were happy and blew big kisses to the K-Hotties! Just like Heechul does!


—The End—
