Q: About FNC Music artists

A: In our company, there are FT Island, CNBLUE and Juniel who won number one in an audition and is now performing in Japan. FT Island made debut when they were middle school or high school students. They practiced musical instruments while others practiced dance. CNBLUE performed in Japan as an indie band when they were trainees, then they debuted in Korea.

Other training teams are the same. This is our company’s unique process of training. Different from other singers, bands need a lot of stage experience. So indie band experience is mandatory. There are some talks as to why they had to perform as indie band in Japan, but I think it’s important to have that “indie” experience in Japan where various bands are active, before their debut in Korea.

Some people criticize that how a band belonged to a management company can be considered as “indie”. But in order to gain experience as an indie band in foreign country, our company didn’t support anything except very basic things. In that situation, just like other Japanese bands, they practice by themselves, move by themselves with musical instruments and equipments.

They performed on streets and in clubs, which was nothing different from other bands. For example, once they were arrested by the police during street performance, later a staff went there to take them out.

And once, CNBLUE said they were invited to a club concert, so we were very happy to hear that. But actually there were only 10 people including all musicians and audience. I think because they had this much stage experiences, they have shown the image of a matured band when they debuted in Korea.

In Korea, the public people don’t know well about band music, so we had hard time to remove their prejudice. All bands in our company play instruments by themselves in recording. But still people doubt about it.

If they didn’t have this basic performing skill, they could not have performed hundreds of times in concerts in Japan. I hope this system and strategy of our company are judged correctly some day. Until then, we are still working hard.

I used to hate you when you sent ftisland to Japan back then when they were at their top in Korea.
I guess that's for the better. Look at ftisland now /proud/
