On June 22, FTISLAND appeared as a guest on MBC FM4Us Kim Shin Youngs Hope Song at Noon and talked about Lee Hong Kis friends.
First, the group revealed that Lee Hong Ki mixed up the seniority rankings among the celebrities born in 1989 and 1990. Since Lee Hong Ki was born on March 2, 1990, he is considered to have a fast birthday and is friends with celebrities born in the year 1989 such as CNBLUEs Jung Yong Hwa and Highlights Yong Jun Hyung.
There are a lot of fast 1990 birthdays in entertainment. Theres actress Park Shin Hye, Highlights Lee Gi Kwang, and 2PMs Junho, and we are all close. One time we got together and sorted out our seniority rankings. Thats why 2PMs Hwang Chansung considers Junho his senior, said Lee Hong Ki.
Following this, member Choi Jong Hun, who was born on March 7, 1990, revealed that Lee Hong Kis friendships have put him in an awkward spot. He said, I dont consider my birthday a fast birthday. I went to school with kids my age. So whenever I see Jung Yong Hwa, its very awkward because Im not sure whether to treat him as a friend or treat him like my senior.
