“Entering Korea’s top prestigious university is a breeze if you are equipped with perseverance, study skills and a careful strategy”
Kang Seok-ho, a former juvenile delinquent–turned-lawyer, is requested to take care of the liquidation of Byeong-mun High School. Looking at the difficult situation the school goes through, Seok-ho decides to save the school and the one and only solution he comes up with to keep the school from breakup is produce as many as Cheon-ha University (CU) applicants.
Seok-ho expects that if the school continues to increase the number of CU applicants every year, more students want to apply for the school, and that helps Byeong-mun overcome its financial difficulties. He is allowed to set up a special class on condition that he would bring 5 students in three days and raise their grades to the point where they can enter Cheon-ha University without difficulty.
Meanwhile, a group of creditors barges into Hwang Baek-hyeon’s place. Baek-hyeon, a student of Byeong-mun high, is a juvenile delinquent who has no interest in study. Out of sympathy, Seok-ho mobilizes all the knowledge he can to save Baek-hyeon’s family. He emphasizes the importance of learning to Baek-hyeon by saying “If you don’t want to be deceived by others, all you can do is study, study and study!!!”
Full of great anticipation, Seok-ho embarks on the special class. He makes the five students live together and invites high-profile instructors.
Now the journey to reviving the troubled Byeong-mun high begins!

However, Tong slowly distances himself from her, after he is reunited with a childhood friend, Mew (Wichawisit Hiranwongkul). Mew has a talent for singing and piano, and is trying to compose a love song for a music label. However, having lost his parents he has little experience of love himself, so Tong tries to help him.

Through Mew, Tong meets a girl who runs his band. June (Chermarn Boonyasak) looks remarkably like his sister, who went missing on a trip to the North years before. Since she left, Tong’s father (Songsit Rungnopakunsri) has been a miserable drunk.

Witwisit Hiranyawongkul (Thai: พิช-วิชญ์วิสิฐ หิรัญวงศ์กุล’, born July 20, 1989) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, is a Thai actor and singer.

Witwisit Hiranyawongkul, popularly nicknamed Pitch or Pchy, was born and raised in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
He attended Catholic school Montfort College since early age and spent 12 years there. A talented singer, Pitch was the lead singer in his high school band and music has always been a big part of his life. Pitch enjoys hip hop, R&B, gospel and soul music. He plays the piano and composes music in his free time.
Besides music, Witwisit is also a fan of the Japanese manga series Nodame Cantabile and Lomography. He brought his camera to the set of The Love of Siam.
His favourite quote is "No one is PERFECT".
 Pitch attended Montfort College, a prestigious school in Chiang Mai. He entered the Thai entertainment business at the age of 17 while he was still in grade 12. He was discovered in his hometown by Chukiat Sakweerakul, writer and director of The Love of Siam. Chukiat is an alumnus of Montfort College and met Pitch because of their common music interests.
At grade 12, Pitch decided that he would major in Communications at university. In one interview, he expressed "I like to write and tell stories, my friends always tell me they enjoy reading what I write."[cite this quote] He was admitted to the Faculty of Communications, Chiang Mai University.
He declined the offer because he had already started filming The Love of Siam at that time and knew that if he wanted to continue being in the entertainment business, he would have to move to Bangkok. Later, he was admitted to the Faculty of Journalism and Mass Communications, Thammasat University, Bangkok. He started his first year of university around mid 2007 and intends to concentrate on film/screen writing. As of 2008, he is a sophomore in the same faculty with a major in film and photography.
 Pitch has been involved in music since his early years. His first public work was singing the original soundtrack song for the movie "Khao Niew Moo Ping." In The Love of Siam soundtrack, he also contributed several songs. He even composed the music and wrote the lyrics of the song "Roo suek barng mhai" (Do you feel...?). Pitch explained that he found inspiration to write the song after his friend consulted him about a love problem.
The on-screen August has also become a real band with Pitch as the lead singer. Pitch and August started their group career by singing and playing in The Love of Siam's promotional events. Soon organisers wanted the band to play at music festivals and many other events. The audiences were impressed by the young band member's ability to play instruments and their teenage energy. Pitch is proven to be excellent singing live and a good stage entertainer. The 13-member band (including Pitch) released their first album August*Thanx as a band in February 2008. Their first full album Radiodrome was released in December 2008.
 The Love of Siam was filmed from December 2006 to early 2007. Pitch had to travel back and forth between Chiang Mai and Bangkok for the filming. Between the time the movie was completed and released, Pitch completed his high school and moved to Bangkok to attend Thammasat University and live as an ordinary student. After The Love of Siam was released in late November 2007, Pitch became famous almost instantly, especially among young Thais. Soon his fans started to search for information, followed him to all the events he attended, taking thousands of photos and posted on the internet. Some went as far as following him to his dormitory. Pitch was initially very uncomfortable with the attention. He told a reporter, "I would like to go back and live a normal life." Also, he mentioned that he would prefer working behind the scenes in the future.
Fortunately, Pitch seemed to have adjusted to his new life. In one of his interviews, he commented "I appreciate my fans, it's nice to know they are following my work. They had understood me and kept the right distance."Several fanclub websites have been set up and Pitch occasionally writes or replies to his fans on the webboard.
In 2008, Pitch appeared in Thai R&B singer Nasnan's music video "Hak Tur Mod Rak" (If You Have Lost Your Love), as the singer's love interest. In the video, Pitch plays Nasnan's boyfriend whose love starts to wane and who becomes involved with another girl. In one of the scenes, he is slapped in the face by Nasnan. Sumber : Wikipedia

                                               F.T. Island (Korean: 에프티 아일랜드), Five Treasure Island, or FTI, is a five-member South Korean band. The members are Choi Jong Hoon (Leader, guitar and keyboard), Lee Hong Ki (lead vocals), Lee Jae Jin (bass and vocals), Song Seung Hyun (guitar and vocals), and Choi Min Hwan (drums). Their debut album, titled "Cheerful Sensibility", was the sixth best-selling album in 2007. Their debut song 'Lovesick' stayed on top of K-Pop charts for 8 consecutive weeks. Oh Won Bin had been a member of the band up until the beginning of 2009.
 Although F.T. Island's first album, Cheerful Sensibility, was scheduled to be released commercially in May 2007, the members appeared on the show "Wanna be my girlfriend?" (Korean: 두근두근 여친만들기) on the Korean television channel MNet. The band also performed on stage live at Rolling Hall and held their first official showcase at Live House Melon-AX, Gwangjang-dong in Seoul on May 27, 2007.
On June 7, 2007 the group performed their debut song Love Sick on the music television program M!Countdown; their debut album, Cheerful Sensibility, was released on the same day.
Cheerful Sensibility combined 13 songs that were loosely divided into two parts, “Emotional Chapter” and “F.T. Island Chapter”, according to the genre of the songs. The “Emotional Chapter” consists of rock ballads. The "F.T. Island Chapter" was produced by the Japanese composers who worked with the Japanese band, SMAP and is composed of a variety of pop rock songs.
 Selling over 79,000 copies in 2007, it was the sixth best-selling album of the year. The album was re-released on December 3, 2007, titled The Refreshment, with three extra songs, a photobook, a stack of photocards, and a mixing program called Music 2.0 which allows one to adjust the levels of the instruments and vocals. This edition sold 25,724 copies in December 2007.
After debuting in Korea, FNC Music moved F.T. Island's activities overseas. On March 31, 2008, an autograph session in Malaysia at the Damansara Cineleisure was held, which was to be follow the next day by the group's first concert at the Sunway Lagoon Amphitheater. The performance was cancelled, and their first concert was held in Thailand instead, at the Royal Paragon Hall on April 12, 2008. The band performed songs from their album and showcased their individual talents in their solo performances.
 F.T. Island's Japanese debut album, entitled Prologue of F.T. Island, was released on June 7, 2008, with the first single released being Soyogi . The album consists of 8 songs, 2 of which are newer versions of the original songs F.T. Island and Primadonna. The last track, Always Be Mine, is an English version of First Kiss from their debut album (though the lyrics are original). Music videos were also released for Soyogi and Friendship, displaying the band's professional and youthful sides, respectively.
 After their promotional activities in Japan ended, the band returned to Korea to release their second Korean album Colorful Sensibility on August 27, 2008. A follow-up EP, Colorful Sensibility Part 2, was released on October 17, 2008.
On January 28, 2009, it was announced that Oh Won Bin would indeed be leaving the group, with FNC trainee Song Seung Hyun joining as a guitarist and backup vocalist. With the new lineup change, F.T. Island released the music video for their mini-album title song "Bad Woman." They also promoted it on SBS Inkigayo, and two days later, released the band's first Korean mini-album Jump Up.
In the months January and February, the boys started touring in Asia. The tour visited Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Philippines, and Singapore. Tickets were sold out quickly; representatives of the band believe it was due to the popularity of Lee Hong Ki starring in the drama, "You're Beautiful".

On April 20, FTIsland released their 4th major Japanese single Satisfaction with accompanying tracks, I want and Friends, in which Choi Jonghun participated in the composition of both songs. The single topped the Oricon Weekly Charts at 2nd place. They were positioned right after Johnny’s Kanjani8. Their title song “Satisfaction” was also selected to be the ending theme song of the current airing anime “Toriko”, generating high expectation from the public. Sumber: Wikipedia
