K-pop rock band FT Island will celebrate their 10th anniversary this year with the release of the album “Over 10 Years” on June 7, the date of their debut in 2007.
FT Island debuted in the music scene in June 2007 with the album “Cheerful Sensibility.” Their last album was “Where’s the Truth” released in July last year.
In the Philippines, Pinoy Primadonnas, the fans of FT Island, marked the group’s decade-long career this year with three projects.
FTIPri Philippines, a local fan base, completed the projects that benefited three institutions.
The group adopted six endangered species through the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in the name of FT Island members Choi Jong Hoon, Lee Hong Ki, Lee Jae Jin, Song Seung Hyun and Choi Min Hwan. These animals are polar bear, giant panda, tiger, lion, elephant and giraffe.
They also adopted 10 trees through Haribon Foundation consisting of five trees named after FT Island and one for each member. The seedlings will be planted in Mt. Banahaw-San Cristobal protected landscape in San Pablo, Laguna, according to the foundation.
“Being in the Philippines where typhoons are happening at an average of 20 times a year, mostly causing a devastating effect, we added another project to raise awareness of the importance of our nature. Trees will be nurtured and will surely be as strong as our Idol band,” FTIPri said.
In addition, the fans also donated medical equipment and supplies to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) for the benefit of sick kids.
“We, FTIPri Philippines in behalf all the Primadonnas in the Philippines, hope that we would be able to inspire and encourage more Filipinos to do their share in helping their fellow, regardless if they are a K-pop or non-K-pop fan,” the fans said.
