It’s just been confirmed that F.T. Island and CNBLUE will be holding a joint concert in Los Angeles!
FNC Music, the label that’s home to FT Island and CN Blue, is building a $9 million USD office building in the Chungdam-dong region in Seoul.
The construction began not too long ago, and their building is being built in the main area of Chungdam-dong.
The building will boast around 6,421 square feet, and the official value of the land alone is worth $7.1 million. The building will also stand three stories high, four if you include the basement level.
Including the value of the actual building itself, the total price of the real estate is estimated to be in the $9 million range.
Band FT Island announced their comeback by unveiling the jacket cover for their new album, ‘GROWN-UP‘.
On January 26th, the boys released a press release revealing the new jacket photo for ‘GROWN-UP’. On the album cover, the boys are holding instruments in their hands and are looking off into the distance, giving off a quiet, mysterious feel.
Going along with that concept, all the songs on their new album are slow-tempoed rock-ballad tracks. The boys who have received much praise for their talents with song like “Hello Hello” and “Like The Birds” in 2011 will give further evidence to their audience that they have grown and matured as musicians.
Their agency FNC Music confidently remarked, “This may be their best album yet, as by hearing the rock ballad tracks, fans will be able to experience how much they boys have matured musically.”
FNC Music stunned thousands of expectant fans by announcing the cancellation of CN BLUE‘s solo concert, “BLUE STORM in Indonesia“.
“The [BLUE STORM] in Indonesia concert, scheduled for November 26th, has been cancelled,” the company revealed through CN BLUE’s official website.
“This is a problem stemming from our lack of trust with the local Indonesian organizers of the event, thanks to shoddy event planning and failing to live up to their contract.”
“Although we tried to make several requests about the promotions and the concert, they never replied to our requests which aided our decision to cancel the event,” FNC Music said.
It was recently reported that there is a high possibility that CN Blue and FT Island will be absent from domestic end of the year music award ceremonies due to other obligations outside of the country.
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.
CN BLUE, one of the popular band from South Korea is ready to visit Jakarta as a part of their Asian tour which began last September in Seoul, Korea. CN BLUE’s first visit in Indonesia is greeted with joy by music lovers from across the country and even from abroad, especially fans of Kpop music. ticket sales at Early Bid sessions and presale (2500 tickets sold out) prove the high interest from music lovers to watch this great concert.
To improve the quality of the performance considering the convenience of the audience, and also as requested by FnC Music as CNBLUE’s management, Starlight Management Indonesia decided to expand the size of the stage and make the audience more comfortable by moving the venue from Skenoo Gandaria City Hall to JITEC Mangga Dua Square. changes only occur in terms of location, but the date and time of the concert remains the same, November 26th, 2011 at 6 pm.
‘Bluestorm in Jakarta’ not only marks the first CN Blue concert in Indonesia but also the beginning of official CN Blue’s promotion period in Indonesia through live performance on television as well as promoting their official album with Warner Music Indonesia.
CN BLUE 2011 Asia Tour Concert ‘Bluestorm in Jakarta‘ is expected to satisfy music lovers, especially fansof Kpop music. “We expect this concert to be a celebration for those who has great taste of music and hopefully can bring great memories for all visitors in attendance ,” said Poppy Deviana, Project Director Starlight Management Indonesia.
