On November 19th, FNC Music (the label company responsible for both groups) revealed, “Due to the Asia Tour and packed foreign schedules, the possibility of CN Blue and FT Island attending domestic end of the year ceremonies has weakened.”
They continued, “It’s become impossible for them to attend the ‘2011 Melon Awards‘ and ‘2011 MAMA’. We can’t guarantee the other ceremonies as well.”
According to the agency, FT Island will be busy holding concerts in Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand in addition to their domestic and Japanese Arena concerts. If this isn’t enough, the boys will also be releasing their new Japanese single, ‘Distance‘ on the 30th and will back it up with a long series of promotional activities.
