FT Island Reveals ‘Haruka’ MV


FT Island Reveals 'Haruka' MV

Lee Hongki will be making his debut in the Japanese drama scene with ‘Muscle Girl!’ The music video for the theme song ‘Haruka’ has been revealed.

Both the title song and the insert song ‘Itsuka‘, has been sung by FT Island. The two leads have been promoting the drama where Hongki expressed,“When I first heard the news that I was casted as the male lead in this drama, I was elated and worried at the same time. But filming has begun and it’s a lot of fun. I can hardly wait for the drama to go on air.”

Meanwhile, the drama started off on April 19th, with Hongki and Ichikawa Yuias the main leads.

Check out the MV below, and tell us what you think.

The plot surrounds Azusa, who has to take over a small female pro wrestling organization, as the only child of the owner who passes away. The business on the other hand, is already losing money and is on the verge of shutting down. Things gets worse when the referee suddenly disappears, leaving a resignation letter behind. In the desperate situation, Azusa bumps into a Korean man (played by Hongki), and persuades him to serve as the referee for the day. Little does she know, that this man is actually a poplar star in Korea…
