January 27, 2009 at 10:20 pm | Posted in Music, Stars | 72 Comments

On January 28, F&C Music announced that guitarist Oh Won Bin suddenly left the band FT Island.

He started as a member of the group, but said that there were long time differences with the other members and the music personally, and stopped activities with them.

FT Island’s agency F&C Music said, “The fans knew about these rumors coming out. But Oh Won Bin is the one who made the final decision. And at the end of the discussion, it was the team’s final decision.

“Oh Won Bin will not leave FT Island a four-member band. A new member will come along with their new mini-album in February.”

  33. At the beginning I didn’t even knew that F.T. Island excisted, but I already knew Hongki oppa, so I’ve a friend that is fan of F.T. Island & se told me about it, so I get more & more pulled into liking F.T. Island & than Wonbin wasn’t even my fav & I already knew that Wonbin oppa was gone (out of F.T. Island) and still get sad when I hear Wonbin oppa’s voice when I hear songs of their 1st two full-length albums, but the songs r 2 good 2B erased, so I couldn’t get it over my heart 2 erase them … Then I wanted 2 know more about the members so I go on various sites & the 1st thing I noticed was that Wonbin oppa was so much fun & everything, so in the end Wonbin oppa turned out 2B my fav of all the 5 members!

    F.T. Island isn’t the same without u *sad,crying*

    Wonbin oppa saranghaeyo | I miss u so much hope 2 hear from u soon w/ a single of the musicgenre u like and ur raps were the best of the 5!!!<3

  34. O.O

    -breaks into tears-

    …not really. but still. i had a thing for them for a week-ish a while ago, so today i was like, hm, i think i’ll go listen to them again and look up some pictures and… won bin’s gone.


    no matter what everyone says, he was adorable =]

    and… i dun really like the new guy =[

    oh well. life goes on.

  35. Waaaahhh i mizz him already man i wish he would just stay well hope he still stays famous
    i love him sooo much he was such a good singer

  36. I listened to FT Island because I like Wonbin’s voice. D: even though he rarely sings but when he does, it sounds so soothing. now that he’s leaving the group, there’s not really a reason to listen to FT island. I don’t like their new single, ‘bad woman’ but i’m always wondering ‘what’s with all these emo songs and their mvs?’: bad woman, love sick, until you return, because i don’t know how to love, after love, heaven(sort of)? there’s always someone dying, or someone getting beat up and crap.
    I hope Wonbin debuts soon D: I’ll miss you for the time being.

  37. wonbinnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn……………………….napa u kuar arrrrr??????????????im from malaysia always support uuuuu
