Lee Hong Gi, the lead vocalist of Korean pop-rock band FTISLAND, is back Thursday (Oct. 18) with the new single “Cookies” from his new EP Do n Do.
Inspired by a nickname for the bonus post-credit scenes in films, “Cookies” is an emotive electro-pop track quite different from Lee’s typical fare within FTISLAND. Forgoing boisterous pop rock for a sprightly dance track, it’s full of positive messaging about things getting better in the future, or after the plot of life’s current state appears to be finished.
BTOB’s Jung Ilhoon lends his deep tone as a featured rapper, joining Lee in thinking positively about the ups and downs of life, and expressions of looking forward to being happy after falling down. “You should wait for cookies,” Lee whispers in the last few moments of the single, ending the upbeat track on a mellow, hopeful note.
