Hongki has been a busy guy lately what with filming recently wrapping up for the drama ‘A Korean Odyssey’ (화유기.) A fun fact about Hongki is he loves nail art and also released a book all about his passion. 2 other FT Island members that also have a birthday in March are bandmates Junghoon on the 7th and Oh Wonbin on the 26th. We hope the boys celebrate well.

Unashamedly a giant nerd and bibliophile. Obsessing over Korea has become my life. <3
