Lee Hongki of 5-member rock band FT Island has finally hit the hospital for treatment on the afternoon of December 30th (Korea).

FT Island’s rep stated:

Due to the concerts and busy end of year schedules, the members were extremely exhausted. Lee Hongki was affected the most and therefore was admitted into the hospital, where he will rest until January 1st. We will then head off to Japan to continue our promotions there.

Lee Hongki’s unhealthy condition was extremely evident at the 2008 SBS Gayo Daejeon show, where he was still able to put on a stellar performance, although sounding very raspy and losing his voice towards the end. Here’s to a speedy recovery in the new year!

Big Bang, along with their sponsor, sports brand FILA, will be releasing a “Branded Entertainment,” digital single entitled, “Stylish (The FILA).”

“Stylish,” was written by G-Dragon and composed by Perry. The track will be a “stylish,” (go figure) and upbeat hip-hop title.

YG Entertainment stated:

Very similar to “Anycall” and “Anymotion” by Lee Hyori, Big Bang’s “Stylish” will be tightly integrated with the FILA brand. Due to Big Bang’s musical talent and their “fashionista” status, this deal was possible.

I can see the midgets lining up already to buy FILA products. It’s a miracle, I guess Big Bang can be useful.

No release date yet, but “Stylish” should be out real soon.
