Lee Hongki said he fought a lot with FT Island members in the early days of his debut. He said, "We once had a fight over side dishes. The manager prepared the menu he always ate for sensitive members. One member said, 'I didn't talk about this today. I was going to eat something else.' Then I say, "Just eat it." He laughed.

Song Eun-i sympathized, saying, "Originally, even if there were only two people, they would fight. But how difficult would it be if there were five people?" Lee Hongki was happy and said, “There are three of us these days. We get along really well.”

He continued, "I feel sorry for the members a lot. Since I am the type of person who comes forward, many people follow my opinion when setting the direction. People who say, 'We like what Hongki does, too,' are precious. That's what our members are." He showed extraordinary affection.

Song Eun-i changed the topic of conversation and said, "People who don't know may be thinking, 'Why are we suddenly talking about buttocks?' In fact, our Hongki is famous for boils." Lee Hongki confessed, “That’s right. I don’t know if this is a sad story or a good story.”

He confessed honestly, "I may have done a little less because I was good at preventing it, but this disappears when male hormones drop," causing laughter. Lee Hong-ki then added, “This is a disease that is very sensitive to hormones.”

Song Eun-i was worried, saying, “At first, when I didn’t know much about it, I thought it was really cute. But I heard that I had a really hard time because I couldn’t even sit or stand.” Lee Hong-ki described, "That's right. I fall down. When I stand up, it feels like all the rocks in the world are on my butt."

Song Eun-i burst out laughing, saying, “I know the story that Hongki chose ‘new buttocks’ as the gift he wanted to receive for Christmas.” Lee Hong-gi expressed concern by saying, "It's true. Even now, there are only scars and surgery marks on my butt. It's all dead flesh."

Lee Hong-gi said, "I also did a campaign for boils. Because of that, it became a hot topic. The correct disease name, 'Hydradenitis suppurativa,' was created. I expressed my hope that people with the same pain would confidently go to the hospital. If you leave it alone, it will cause more headaches. Medicines “There is no choice but to prevent it,” he explained.
