Music career

F.T. Island

F.T. Triple

In January 2009, members Choi Jong Hoon, Choi Minhwan, and Lee Jaejin were put into the sub group "A3". This group debuted at the 2009 New Year concert "My First Dream" held at the JCB Hall in Tokyo, Japan on January 2, 2009. Jong Hoon performed as the guitarist and a sub-vocalist. The group's name was "A3" due to each of the three members having type A blood. This group was formed to help take up some singing time during their concerts, so that lead singer, Lee Hongki, would not overstrain his voice.

In late 2009, the triple-member group was renamed "F.T. Triple" and began working with Jong Hoon on keyboard instead of guitar. They released the single "Love Letter" and began performing on music shows. During this time, F.T. Island's main vocalist Lee Hongki was busy filming a drama and guitarist Song Seung Hyun was involved in several variety shows.
