Hongki discusses his thoughts on comparisons between F.T. Island and labelmate CNBLUE




It's no secret that F.T. Island get compared to their labelmates CNBLUE, and Hongki finally came out to reveal his frustration about it.

On the May 22nd broadcast of MBC's 'Radio Star', the MCs jokingly poked fun at the rivalry between the two groups a few times throughout the show. Kyuhyun said "Does it bother you that I'm good friends with CNBLUE?" and Yoon Jong Shin added, "Does CNBLUE get on your nerves?"

Hongki responded, "Oh no. You know, I don't concern myself too much with what CNBLUE is doing. We are doing our own things separately, and it's all fine, but people keep bringing it up and that's what makes it awkward! Sometimes they'll get to do something, and it's good because it just serves to motivate us to work hard as well."

The MCs then took a stab at their maknae Kyuhyun, saying, "Super Junior are also very wary of SHINee," teasing him about the rivalry between the SM Entertainment labelmates. Kyunhyun joked, "Ah, I hope SHINee will turn out well," like the sunbae that he is, and the MCs commented, "Actually SHINee is worried about you," bringing laughter with the banter.

Later in the show, Hongki was once again asked to elaborate when the MCs asked, "Although F.T. Island is the one that paved the way, it seems like CNBLUE has become quite big, and your agency seems to cater to them more these days. Do you feel any discontentment about that?"

Hongki honestly answered, "There was one incident recently.We have managers, road managers, all the way up to executives, who all differ in rank. Usually when a group travels overseas for a promotion, almost everyone goes. However, we had a concert in China, and only two road managers came with us. CNBLUE had a concert in Singapore around the same time, and the president as well the vice president went there. I did feel upset and called up our boss right away, and he explained that it was because for our event, they contracted an overseas company who was in charge of taking care of us while we were there. But he did give me an apology."

The topic then turned to whether Hongki had revealed that CNBLUE's Jonghyun received cosmetic surgery on his ear on purpose to get back at the "rival" band, and the idol denied that was the case and even sent a video message to Jonghyun and Jonghyun's father, apologizing about the ear incident. However, the MCs then commented, "Oh, now through this broadcast, even more people will know about it," and Hongki gasped at the revelation, closing the topic with laughter.

Hongki featured as guests with his co-stars from the new film 'Passionate Goodbye', Lim Won Hee, Baek Jin Hee, and Shim Yi Young.

What do you think of this labelmate rivalry?
