Hong Ki Gets a Japanese Bride for his Birthday

For his 23rd birthday, F.T. Island's Lee Hong Ki is preparing to get married. Don't worry, fans, it's only for reality TV. Hong Ki will be joining the international version of We Got Married, and will be paired with Japanese actress, Fujii Mina. We loved her performance as Akiko in The King of Dramas, and look forward to seeing the Japanese/Korean cultural exchange through the show.


I know what some of you international K-Pop fans are thinking: Will they include non-Asian celebrities in future episodes? How about non-Asian non-celebrities? Where can I sign up?

Maybe one day you'll get your chance. After all, Hong Ki definitely seems to be open-minded when it comes to romance. In the 2009 smash hit K-Drama, You're BeautifulLee Hong Ki played an idol who spent his youth overseas and may have been in a relationship with a European princess. He has stated on variety shows that age doesn't matter to him, and has even listed Australian model, Jessica Gomes as his ideal type.




Hong Ki is definitely one of the most interesting idols in K-Pop, and we want to wish him a very happy birthday. If you want to learn more about him and his bandmates from F.T. Island, be sure to check out the fun documentary series, Treasure Island. You can watch Episode 1 below:
