Fan tries to guilt-trip FTISLAND's Hongki about ex-member CJH being in jail, Hongki does not care

Soompi article: FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki Has Firm Response To Fan’s Comment About Former Bandmate Choi Jong Hoon

FTISLAND’s Lee Hong Ki had a firm response to a comment regarding his former bandmate Choi Jong Hoon.

Back to home...i’ll miss you..🤪

A post shared by 홍기 이 (@skullhong12) on

A response Lee Hong Ki left to a fan’s comment is gaining attention. The fan wrote, “While Lee Hong Ki and his stylist are having fun in Hawaii, Choi Jong Hoon is in jail. Are you okay with that? Do you sleep well?” To this, Lee Hong Ki wrote back, “I eat well, I sleep well, and I even poop well.”

Lee Hong Ki has maintained a firm stance on former FTISLAND member Choi Jong Hoon. In a previous post, a fan had asked Lee Hong Ki to not give up on Choi Jong Hoon, to which he replied, “I give up.” After Choi Jong Hoon was revealed to be a member of a group chatroom involving Seungri, Jung Joon Young, and others, he parted ways with FTISLAND and FNC Entertainment, and he is currently under investigation for allegations of sexual assault.

"I give up" vs "I eat/sleep/poop well", choose your fighter

Tsk some people really just can't stop being asses, noh? Let Hongki and the rest of FTI live. Kudos to Hongki for that good reply to that comment.

A good transit is important

people are so dumb. hongki didn't do anything wrong, why wouldn't he be out living his best life? if you do the crime, you do the time... it has zero to do with your family/friends/coworkers/etc?? lmao good for him for giving that reply
baekpedaling 31st-May-2019 02:18 pm (UTC)
Why should he lose sleep over someone else's gross behavior?
pepsi_twist9 31st-May-2019 02:19 pm (UTC)
Imagine trying to make someone feel guilty a criminal is paying for their crimes. Where's the shielding your oppas when it comes to the people who aren't guilty?

I hope this fan sleeps well knowing she supports a serial r*pist. Anyway, support Lee Hongki and his good bowel movements guys.

I think if he actually didn't care he wouldn't have responded, lol. Only hongki would say 'I'm pooping well', lol, though Korea does seem to like mentioning poop
gigabytexx 31st-May-2019 06:10 pm (UTC)
it's kinda common in my country too (or at least in my environment/everyday lives) mentioning something about poop. I mean if it was me or my friends saying "I even poop well" it kinda means a huge sense of relief letting something go, because many of us agreed that the most satisfying daily task in human lives is.... well pooping lol

I wish more band members would do this, it would silence all these delusional supporters.
accioanime 31st-May-2019 04:30 pm (UTC)
for the longest time, I thought Hongki was the leader of FTIsland. No lie he hustled the mostest to get the himself and the band's name out there.... variety, dramas, fashion, etc. I would not give a hoot as well if all my hard work for a decade is tarnished by some fake leader who hasn't done much compared to Hongki. Good for him for speaking up, as should CNBlue on LJH (who also needs to GTFO).
fadeintoyou 31st-May-2019 06:13 pm (UTC)

lol same. For years I thought LHK was the leader as well because of that reason. Back in the day, he was everywhere just putting FTI on the map.

kastih 31st-May-2019 07:19 pm (UTC)
mte..it didn't help that the members always looked to/listened to him first and foremost either lmao
mortkero 31st-May-2019 10:10 pm (UTC)
I just found out he wasn't from this post.

I don't follow FT though, he's the only one that I've seen doing stuff.

But good on him. I liked him on PD101 and I'm happy to know he's a good egg.

Hongki is definitely much better leader material than the other guy ever was.

2 other CNB members are in the army right now but Yonghwa should be finished this year, it'd be nice if he said something once he does (but I'm not sure if he's the outspoken type and he also had his own fair share of scandals before he enlisted so not sure of the chances).
timetobegin 31st-May-2019 04:42 pm (UTC)
A+. Call them what they are: SHIT
thebloomroom 31st-May-2019 04:56 pm (UTC)
Nnnnn i love it
lizanka23 31st-May-2019 04:59 pm (UTC)
why don't those fans get a clue? if even his bandmates don't support him then this should convince them finally that he's guilty
daynr 31st-May-2019 05:56 pm (UTC)
it's nice to see someone doing slightly more than the bare minimum of silence.
sra_interesante 31st-May-2019 06:08 pm (UTC)
i keep looking for that comment only to give a ❤️ to Hongki reply ... but apparently the loser who wrote that comment just deleted it

why those oppalogist idiots are always such cowards? 💁 if they like to go and preach about "oppa is not guilty" in others members sns they should stick to the original comment ...

tsk tsk just like Jong Hoon , that fan dont like to face the consequences of his own stupidity 🤣🤣🤣

Do they really expect him to not live his life because someone else chose to be trash?!
fadeintoyou 31st-May-2019 06:15 pm (UTC)

I have to give it to him for drawing a line in the sand so fans know clearly where he stands, the good and right side.

vintage_boom 31st-May-2019 07:31 pm (UTC)
nnnn fnc's PR strategy on handling this is working I see. anything but indifference and anger from the members would have looked awful. FNC's image rn is terrible with every single one of their bands getting into some shit or being disbanded.
ah0000 31st-May-2019 10:53 pm (UTC)

Good. I still love Hongki a lot.

Has any other celeb who is related to any of the people in the scandal spoken out?

babyjenkski 1st-Jun-2019 02:59 am (UTC)
Aside from denying involvement, defending themselves or their spouse for being linked to the issue, no. I don't think anybody else has spoken about it or have replied to comments from fans.

Another FTI member Seunghyun tried to talk about it on IG after the news broke out but deleted the post after like 1 second. I don't remember if the translation I read was legit or not but I think he said CJH was wrong and that he was shocked that someone who treated him so nicely (they're both guitarists and Seunghyun joined the band late so CJH was kind of his ~mentor~) would do such a thing... not much else though, basically just shock and hurt.

Hongki's the only member who's been clear about his stance, but FTI as whole were pretty much giving CJH the cold shoulder during their recent Japan tour as 4 members whenever they had to address the elephant in the room.
aeries_amethyst 1st-Jun-2019 06:25 am (UTC)
The audacity of that fan for trying to come after Hongki to guilt trip him. Like if Jonghun is in the wrong and deserves to be punished, why should Hongki be defending him? Does the fan really expect him to be losing sleep over this and not going about his life? These people need to get real and get a life.
xchubbycheeks 1st-Jun-2019 08:04 pm (UTC)
Fuck yes, we stan poop!Hongki.
