C.I. Entertainment releases notice on FT Island concert issue

K-popped! has received a press release from C.I. Entertainment on the FT Island concert fiasco.

FT Island came to Malaysia, held a press conference (pic above) and
appeared at a couple of fan meets, but didn’t perform a concert as scheduled.

First of all, the rumour circulating among fans that the local organiser tried to trick FT Island’s manager into appearing at the concert venue is false.

(Update April 3: While C.I. Ent has denied the rumour, fans have on record a C.I. Ent rep relating the story to them).

C.I. Entertainment says in an e-mail, “We would just like to clarify that the hearsay/rumour that was mentioned (in K-popped!’s previous article) is not true.”

Now on to C.I. Entertainment’s message to all who have been affected by the cancellation of FT Island 1st Live in Malaysia concert.
