[NEWS]FT Island, Isolated In Philippines Due To Storm, Communication Cut Off!

Idol band, FT Island, was isolated in the Philippines due to a storm.

FT Island left for Cebu, Philippines on 25th September for the filming of their new music video. On their way there, they met with a massive storm and were isolated in a critical situation.

On the following day after FT Island arrived in the Philippines, storm “Ketsana” slammed the Philippines and it was reported that as on 27th September, 72 people had either gone missing or dead and recorded a total of 250,000 victims. It was said to be the worst storm to hit the country in 40 years.

FT Island’s management company, F&C Music, tried contacting FT Island and their staff who are in Philippines to check on their safety but their local lines were unreachable.

The storm caused communication system to be cut off. Their management company got worried and impatient for the past two days trying to get in touch with them. Luckily, both sides managed to get in contact with each other late on 27th. Upon knowing that they are safe, their management heaved a sigh of relief.

Fortunately, it was also known that the area where FT Island is staying is not greatly affected by the storm.

Schedule for the filming of their music video was slightly delayed. They had plans for filming on aircrafts but it was aborted. It was originally planned to be a 4 days 3 nights filming but they had to rush the filming within 2 days through the night due to the storm. They plan to return on 28th after the filming.

On the other hand, FT Island’s vocal Lee Hongki is filming for SBS Wed-Thu drama “You’re Beautiful“.

    Massive flooding greatly affected Luzon/Manila. Many properties have been damaged, and many lives were claimed by this disaster. Several are still missing. This is something that shocked us all -- left us with disbelief. Our hearts ache everytime we watch the news. It's really heartbreaking.

    We are still dealing with the aftermath. Let us all pray together for the safety of those who are still missing. Let us pray for families to reunite.

    We - Filipinos - can always SMILE in times of difficulties. May we all have the SPIRIT to continue and build our lives again. WE CAN DO IT! WE CAN DO IT TOGETHER!
