Song Seung Hyun, guitarist for FT Island, showed that he isn’t only talented in music but also foreign languages. According to news agency reports, Seung Hyun displayed his Mandarin Chinese conversational skills by addressing the crowd in Mandarin at their “Take FT Island” concert in Taiwan on December 15 and 16.
Taiwan was a two-night performance on the FT Island Asian concert tour. Taiwanese media reported that Seung Hyun spoke to the crowd at the conclusion of their performance and the fans appreciated his dedication to learn the language.
Seung Hyun told the crowd, “Are You Ready?” Then he yelled, “Surprise!” After this, he spoke in Mandarin and translated their song “Hello Hello” in Chinese to the crowd. Reporters also requested for him to render a song, which he was glad to do.
Seung Hyun always had an interest in the language and practices really hard to learn Mandarin: “Chinese is hard to learn.” He posted on the FT Island Weibo account.
FT Island recently released their Japanese single “Polar Star” this month.
