FT Island’s Choi Jong Hoon recently showed off his nice abs.
On August 21, Choi uploaded a picture of himself, baring his upper body, on his Twitter account with the comment, “I’m ready. Are you? Please wait a little bit more.”
Choi has built up his body for a new month for FT Island’s concert, which will be held on September 1 and 2. His fans are guessing it is to keep the promise with his fans that he made on a radio show last year.
In one of the episodes of SBS Radio’s Choi Hwa Jung’s Power Time, which aired last year, Choi said, “People think idol group members are the only ones who have nice bodies, but I want to show you that a band member also has a nice body, so I’m now working out hard with Lee Hong Ki.” At this, Lee Hong Ki said, “We’ll build up our bodies and show you our abs throughout the concert next year.”
FT Island will hold a concert, titled Take FT Island, on September 1 and 2 at the Olympic Hall in Olympic Park.

miss A’s Suzy: “I like one-sided love”

miss A’s Suzy recently said that she likes a one-sided love.
Suzy shot a pictorial for the September issue of the fashion magazine @star1. She talked about her role of Jang Ma Ri in KBS’s series Big.
The character she played loves a boy so much that she does everything she can. Suzy, however, said, “I’m not that kind of a girl. The character is a bubbly girl and a fast talker but I’m not.”
She added, “I obsessed with someone and I’m not a simple-minded person. I like a one-sided love.” She said that she can’t even tell someone who she loves that she loves them.

Suzy also said, “I enjoyed shooting the series. I wanted to look silly for the series and I was happy to play the role of a ghost.”
“What I liked best was that I could become a paparazzi or a stalker thanks to the character. What kind of high school girl wears high heels to school? Only the character can. When the director pointed out something, I just had to say, “Well, it’s Ma Ri.” It was so much fun.”
People responded: “Suzy likes a one-sided love? That’s a nonsense.” “I’m surprised to hear that Suzy likes a one-sided love because she is a first love icon.” “She doesn’t look like she could love someone from a distance.”
