CNBLUE An An Interview No.1922 Issue

CLOSE UP CNBLUE

Special interview with CNBLUE who will start the concert tour in Japan with their new album ‘Wave’!

Their involvement in the music world and themselves of each member, etc.…

Korean handsome 4 members rock band, CNBLUE. They joined a-nation and Summer Sonic in August that these are popular rock festival in Japan, and they showed their high music skill and performance to not only their fans but also to the music fun.

Their new album will be released on September 17th!

We talked about their new album, rock festival, and their concert tour that will be started from October.

What is the concept for your new album ‘WAVE’?

Yonghwa: In a word, ‘exhilaration that we feel’. This time, we made this song to have clear, fresh and refreshing image.

Minhyuk: All of songs that were composed by Yonghwa-hyeong and Jonghyun-hyeong are good as we couldn’t choose the lead song!

Jungshin: We were really thinking about it and finally chose ‘Radio’ that was composed by Yonghwa-hyeong. This song has the melody such feelings as running fast and the fresh sound, we could show our new dimension. And this is so cool song as I can image that we’ll jump with fans during our concert!

Yonghwa: I made this song that is rock and dancable with incorporating our taste into the trend of rock music now.

What is your memory for recording?

Yonghwa: This song has the chorus part like “wow wow~” though, the recording for this part was taken longer than I sing 1 song.

Who was to blame?

Yonghwa: Jungshin! (Everybody laughed)
Jungshin: Because I love this song so much, I felt became more and more hyper. I only ran around in emotional circles.

How many hours did it take?

Jungshin: 15 min?

Yonghwa: Huhhhhh?

Jungshin: Eh? It would be taken so, wouldn’t it?

Yonghwa: (Deep Breath) I can only say he worked hard for a long time.

Jungshin: ahaha.

By reading the lyric, it seems to be love song as well as not a love song…

Yonghwa: In my feeling, it’s like the feeling to reminisce about the analog days, not about a woman.

Minhyuk: But I think your (interviewer) point of view isn’t wrong. Our song sounds like a love song, but actually, most of our songs are like looking back ourselves or sing about painting a vision of the future.

Yonghwa: Exactly, in this time’s our album doesn’t have lots of love songs. ‘Still’ ‘Truth’, and ‘lonely night’ are love song that were composed by me.

Jonghyun: My composed song ‘How Awesome’ expresses the relationship of our fans and us. Depends on the situation or the feeling, our song has various faces, and it’s our lure.

Where do you write the lyric?

Jonghyun: In the airplane. Because we go to overseas frequently. The memo application on a cell phone is very useful.

Yonghwa: I write a lyric in the overseas hotel by using notebook at night. I wrote ‘Control’’s lyric in Japan.

If the environment changed, the idea could come into your head. By the way, let us know your ‘WAVE’ things after your album title.

Jonghyun: I am interested in a philosophy now. It is the question of human’s essential. The meaning that I am here now or the meaning I am alive…

Yonghwa: Aristotle ~! Socrates~.

Did you find the answer?

Jonghyun: If I could find the answer, I am not here (Laugh). I am looking for the answer while reading a book, search by internet and talking people. But the more I think about it, the more I don’t get to understand.

Minhyuk: It comes out soon. Because it is too difficult (Laugh).

Well, What kind of things is Minhyuk-ssi interested in?

Minhyuk: well… What is…

Jungshin: Ikebana! (Flower arrangement)

Ikebana!?

Minhyuk: Ahaha. I like flower. I get some flower from a market and arrange them myself. I learn to arrange them on my own, so I want to take a class and learn about it. Anything else I can say, I want to do clay shooting.

Jungshin: Minhyuk has a great deal of curiosity.

Yonghwa: He is on the way to find his own hobby. This is kind of the journey what fit for him.

Minhyuk: Yes I am. I want to find a hobby that I can keep it though my life.

Well, what is the WAVE that has come now among you guys?

Jungshin: ummmm, maybe nothing (Laugh) Because Yonghwa-hyeong and I are busy for drama shooting, we can’t take a time to do something with the other member.

Minhyuk: We used to play basketball together, but (pointing at Yonghwa and Jungshin) they don’t come back home at all.

Jonghyun: So, I am happy. Freedom~!

Jungshin: He said like that though, when we are not in a dorm with other work, he sends us a message ‘I love you’. Jonghyun-hyeong seems to get lonely easily.
Jonghyun: (with a serious look) Why do I send a message ‘I love you’ to members… oh, I run into a philosophical issue again. I can’t sleep today too.

Do you live together?

Jungshin: Yes. But we say it’s time to start to live apart.

Jonghyun: Yonghwa-hyeong and I live together for about 8 years.

Yonghwa: So long? It’s from I was 20 years old, so about 5 years, isn’t it?

Jonghyun: Oh? Sorry~.

If you lived apart, you would get miss to each other.

Yonghwa: I’d be better off on my own. Just kidding (Laugh). If we lived apart, it would be meaning only change the place that we sleep, so nothing will change.

Jungshin: If we lived apart for real, we would realize whether or not we miss to each other.

Jonghyun: We might understand the importance of the other members.

After that, there will be a chance to live together again?

Everybody: It never happens!

It would not have to be completely denied (Laugh). So, you can gather together only when having a concert. You joined the festivals a-nation and Summer Sonic in August. How do you think about them?

Minhyuk: It was fun! That says it all. I really had fun because it’s a chance to show our music not only our fans but also general people.

Jungshin: Since many bands joined in these festivals, we got inspired by them a lot.

Jonghyun: Since we experienced various festivals, we could come to be enjoyed the unique atmosphere offestivals. I enjoy the interaction with other Japanese band members.

Arena tour will be started from October.

Jonghyun: Our motto ‘Anytime to enjoy’ won’t change. Since it’ll be held in autumn to winter, we want to make our concert to be felt the sense of the season.

Minhyuk: It’s like the outside is cold, but inside the venue is hot. We hope the fans feel warm inside their hearts then.

The first place for your concert tour is the mecca of rock, Budokan.

Yonghwa: We are so proud that we can stand the stage of Budokan that has a long history. But our stance for music will never change. Since we will make unforgetable stage for the people who came our concert, we want everybody come to it. Here, say something, Jungshin!

Jungshin: Please come to our live, please~~!

Q1. What are you doing in order to keep your beautiful skin?
Q2. What kind of make-up do you like to have for a girl?

Minhyuk:

A1. I take lots of water. Not juice or tea, just water. And I try to use good quality moisturizing cream. Because I have dry skin, I have to moisturize to my skin.

A2 . It’s better to less is more, a gap between makeup face and no makeup. I like natural make-up . I don’t want to feel disappointed with unpainted face

Yonghwa:

A1. I drink a Chinese herb tea  brewed by my mother. I don’t know what kind of Chinese herbs in it though, I believe it’s good for my health and drink it.

A2. I like no make-up face or light makeup. I think it’s better not to strong eye lines. The man thinks so, right?

Jonghyun:

A1. I remove my makeup certainly. Because I was said that cleansing cream and oil disagree with my skin at a dermatologist, I remove makeup without them, wash my face twice. Wash my face thoroughly first, and next gently.

A2. I like light makeup. But if the girl does a sexy makeup, I might get excited.

Jungshin:

A1. I use moisturized cream every day and sleep well. I think sleep is the best for skin condition. When I slept well, my skin is resilient

A2. I don’t know about girl’s makeup well… Suffice it to say that I like better light eye makeup. I don’t like eyelash like false eyelash. It seems like bird’s wing.

CNBLUE manager’s Interview
What about CNBLUE’s daily life?

This time is our interview with CNBLUE’s Japanese manager, B-san!
As being the ones who close to CNBLUE, please tell us the real face of the member.

“Even thought it was your second appearances (on screen), but please greet BOICE JAPAN.”

CNBLUE be able to do World Tour and another big scale activity is because of everyone’s support, warm welcome, all the member feel like you guys are family. Keep support them okay?”

“Truth” has been released, did that effecting CNBLUE’s other schedule?”

During their world tour they keep writing song(s) and still doing their other projects, so there no effect at all.

“What about fan-meeting that will be hold soon?”

About fan-meeting, CNBLUE was like, “waiting the time to meet family”. So, please anticipate it.

“Among CNBLUE’s member, who the most greedy one when it comes to food?”

It must be Jungshin, he eats everything, before stage, during break, he will never forget about food.

“Among CNBLUE’s member, who messiest the most?
“Messy” but could it be ‘manly’ (reffering to a man usually mess people?) then it must be Jonghyun. Just like in this hotel where Jonghyun was staying, thats the evidence.

“Among CNBLUE’s member, who the stylish member the most?”
About that, it’s Jungshin. Since he has huge interest in such things, he always looking for the latest news and if there new releases he will be the one who own it very firstly compare the other.

“Among CNBLUE’s member, who is doing his everything accordingly?”

This is the good side of Yonghwa. He didn’t change his rhythm with anything else. He’ll complete a day’s schedule perfectly such eating, practicing and easily to sort anything that distract his concentration. We can say that he’s a great “Stoic”.

“Among CNBLUE’s member , who likes messing around the most?”
Aside of Minhyuk? He always look cool, but sometimes he’ll show a weird expression that make people laugh or did gyaru (Gal; one of Japanese’s girl make-up). Aside of his random time, he can also be destructive (not in the real way).

“B-san please listed CNBLUE’s member as your family.”
Jungshin is younger brother and Yonghwa is a father, mother will be Minhyuk since he is good doing chores and planning, he also organized and calm. He often reminds me stuff that I missed and also support me so much. Jonghyun is twin brothers. Because Jonghyun speaks Japanese, he was the one who relying the lattest information or discuss the things represent the other member.

Manager CNBLUE
B-san

That’s all for this time report.
Did you enjoy CNBLUE’s newsletter?
Please anticipate Vol.2 that will report you more about CNBLUE’s member!

CNBLUE BPASS Interview September 2014 Issue

BtcFlZSCMAAbwGm.jpg large

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

They will release new song that includes the message “Go your believed way! ” on August 20th.

We, B-PASS bring the behind story, their passion for Rock festival in Japan in Summer, and etc.

It’s been a long time since you had gotten an interview by B-PASS last time. Then let’s talk a lot. At first, what does your 8th single ‘Go Your Way’ s concept?

Yonghwa: Because ‘Go Your Way’ as a lead song is so cool song and has a fast tempo during a whole, I think it’s good for Rock festival.

Minhyuk: I hope everybody swing a towel and groove during live (when they sing the song).

Yonghwa: I think a song that has a fast tempo is better for summer, I took care about it when I compose this song.

Everybody: I took care about it… (in Japanese)

It looks like the pronunciation is difficult.  (Laugh) When did you compose  each song (in this album)?

Yonghwa: About ‘Go Your Way’, I composed this song before a release of ‘Can’t Stop’ (around late of February). And I composed ‘Control’ about a year ago. I had tried to add this song to our last album in Korea, but I didn’t (Yonghwa think it didn’t suit with Can’t Stop).

Jonghyun: We had many twists and turns…

Jungshin: As a result, we brought this song to Japan.

Yonghwa: Because of ‘Can’t Stop’ is a mini-album, We couldn’t put many songs.

Jungshin: And ‘Control’ has different atmosphere from the other songs in ‘Can’t Stop’, We saved this song for future. We choose matching these three songs for this time’s single.

Jonghyun: I composed ‘Monster’ recently. I didn’t compose it especially for this time’s single, but I liked this song, I put it in this time’s single.

So, you don’t compose the songs, making a distinction between for Korea and for Japan, do you?

Yonghwa: Basically so. We used to do like that way though. And we added an arrangement to match with the  concept.

bpasssept2014

Well, let us know about a song one by one. The lead song is ‘Go Your Way’ that was composed by Yonghwa. What image does this song have?

Yonghwa: Everybody might have some stresses. I put the message that overcoming such a thing and ‘ Do what you want’ ‘ Go where you want’.

It repeated the lyric ‘Don’t Stop~’ in the chorus. It makes remember me ‘Can’t Stop’. Do they have some relationship?

Yonghwa: Well… specifically, nothing. (Laugh)

Do you always have something ‘Can’t Stop’ in your heart?

Yonghwa: I noticed that just once you said. Maybe I have.

There is the lyric “ Until I reach there, Go your way”. Where do you want to go?

Yonghwa: It might somewhere that I can’t control myself. I should go ’till I think “oh, that was my happiness” When I look back.

(To the other members) What do you think about this song?

Jungshin: I think this is good for the lead song because we were talking that an up-tempo number is better for it. I thought the fans could groove to this song even as this positive lyric not only the melody. This song would match the image of us.

Jonghyun: The guitar melody in verse is interesting. I wonder how do the fans think about it. The piece is common, but because this chord is the first time to try for me, I enjoyed while the recording.

Are the chord and the playing method created while playing? Or while composing and arranging a song?

Jonghyun: While playing. So, I try several ways of playing sometimes during a recording.

This is the Rock Band way.

Jonghyun: Which reminds me, our songs are…(chuckle) Our slow tempo songs are difficult for us especially a guitar rhythm. I can play easily the rock with quickly tempo songs like this ‘Go Your Way’ catching the momentum, but ‘I’m alone’ is still difficult to play for me even it’s a debut song. (Laugh)

Now you get involved in songwriting more than when on your debut. So, you can make more ‘easy-to-play song for you’, don’t you?

Yonghwa: We could say that. But still now, we get some advices when we work out.

Jonghyun: I used to work by myself, but now I realized that is better and fun to work with members and staffs.

And then ‘Control’ is also composed and wrote by Yonghwa.

Yonghwa: Yes it is. Minhyuk and Jungshin participate in writing  lyric with me.

Minhyuk: oh, I did little… So my name has been uncredited on the album. Yonghwa-hyeong gave me a hint and I tried to write a lyric, but I couldn’t well. After all, Yonghwa-hyeong helped us.

Jungshin: It was a good experience for me.

Even if it’s uncredited, That is the first time to participate to write a lyric ever in Japan, isn’t it?

Jungshin: Yes it is. When we were staying at the hotel, suddenly I have an urge to write a lyric. Yonghwa-hyeong and Jonghyun-hyeong have already written a lyric. But we never had experience of it. So we write a lyric with Yonghwa-hyeong.

Yonghwa: You said that you wanted to write first.

Jungshin: yeah, it was when Yonghwa-hyeong was so busy

Yonghwa: I remembered that you were coming to my room, each of you.

Jungshin: whenever I tried to start writing, I had a hard time to translate it to English because I wrote it in Korean.

In which hotel? Overseas?

Everybody: In Japan.

Jungshin: Was that during Zepp tour?

Yonghwa: It was the end of the year, so it was on Arena tour.

Can you describe how did you write a lyric with three members?

Jungshin: Since it’s difficult to match our idea at a once, so we wrote it to each other roughly. Then Yonghwa-hyeong fixed them up. Because he is a composer. I showed my lyric while saying him my impression from a melody, he checked it in front of me.

Yonghwa: Lying on the bed in Jungshin’s room, we discussed about that.

Jungshin: When collecting our lyric, we used a computer.

Was it Younghwa the one who translate it into English?

Yonghwa: Yes, That’s me.

Which part of this song that striking the most?

Yonghwa: The intro is good.

Jungshin: dadatata tarararara~~~(He sings an intro)

Jonghyun: I had an awful time because of that intro. (Laugh)

This lyric says about self control.

Minhyuk: Yonghwa-hyeong advised us to think about the theme, except ‘Love’

Jungshin: I tried to write a lyric about love, but Yonghwa-hyeong said that he doesn’t want to write it in a common theme. So we had to match our theme for a song..

Minhyuk: At first, I wrote like ‘ Don’t control me, Don’t bother my way’ but I talked about the theme with Jungshin, and Yongwa-hyeong fixed it like ‘ Nobody controls me’.

bpasssept2014

Let’s talk about this song later. Next we are talking about the song ‘Monster’ which composed by Jonghyun.

Minhyuk: I thought what is “Monster’ when I heard this word. It was impressive.

Jungshin: It has same image between a demo song and finished the song.

So, Is this mean that this song have already finished from the first? Jonghyun-ssi, What is the point of this song?

Jonghyun: Especially the lyric. I wrote this lyric in English because I wanted to make point of view  the world in unique ways. I sometimes write a lyric in Japanese, but it’s different from the conversation and lyric. Because although it has many ways of expressions, and is difficult to use it in Japanese. It’s simple in English. When I heard the melody and have to write lyrics, I tried to sing ‘I’ll take you to the monster~’. That meaning is ‘I’ll take you to the place where there is a monster’. So I got an idea. Do you know that we can hear the word ‘alien’ again and again in the song of Sting ‘Englishman in New York’ ? It’s like ‘I’m alien, I’m stranger in New York’ I thought it’s funny expression, so I wanted to try to write a lyric about ‘monster’. A whole meaning is like ‘I’ll take you the place where there is a monster even if you wouldn’t with me.’ It’s as against the lady who hurt me and it’s one of the puerile intimidation. (Laugh)

Oh, Sting! We feel same vector on you and them with clear melody. By the way, does Jonghyun has your love style like a child?

Jonghyun: No~~, the world of lyric is difficult. I can more expand them, but I dared to want to make this lyric more partial thing on purpose….

Is like this love style not distant?

Jonghyun: No way. (Laugh)  But this is the point for this song

Jonghyun said ‘Puerile’, but we can hear that lyric that has too pure feeling, and it’s so wistful. So I think it’s better to hear that song after translating into Japanese. And then about the playing instrument, drum’s irregular rhythm is a good point to hear.

Minhyuk: Thank you for saying so. Because Jonghyun-hyeong had composed very good song…

Jonghyun: (*Bursting into laughing*)

Minhyuk: I didn’t do anything.

Jonghyun: Since I hadn’t made the detail of the rhythm, I left Minhyuk to play what he wants to play. That is the rhythm that he had made.

A striking guitar rhythm come out in the end of the song. In the part of ‘You You You~’ , I feel like the guitar sings with a vocalist.

Jonghyun: About the guitar melody, I made it worring when it was a demo song. So there are some beliefs in this song.

By the way, We get back to the topic of ‘Control’. You have some songs that showing dilemma that you have faced in an own chest in the lyric like ’Robot’, ‘Don’t Care’ or ‘Wake Up’.

Yonghwa: Exactly. ‘Robot’ is the most notable one, and ‘Time Is Over’ too. I can’t write it if I don’t have such a dilemma.

Because there are lots of lyric that were written in English, we might not realize it. But I think those showing some frustrations and rebellious spirits in the lyric requires courage.

Yonghwa: In fact, I like such as a lyric. Because almost our lead songs are love song recently, I have wanted to write like this time’s lyric. It can help to change our songs atmosphere. But I have written such a lyric, I feel like to make all sorts of complaints. Our hit songs are actually almost love song. (LOL) At the same time, If I would write a song expecting a hit, I feel that is not my song. Actually, I had been like that, but sometimes I re-wrote in another theme. I think the feeling has to catch up to the lyric.

You have lots of songs that have a lyric showing some dilemmas, is this not automatically mean that you have some complaint on a regular basis?

Yonghwa: So I’m trying not to internalize stress, I give vent to it on lyric. (Laugh)

Minhyuk: I think he takes his daily frustration out with writing a lyric.

Jungshin: Actually, if the song that has a firm conviction would released in Korea….

Yonghwa: We could do it. But timing matters. I think it’s about time to do it though…

Since you are already ‘Oppa deul’ in Korea, You could do such a challenge.

Yonghwa: (holding his head) oh, no~~, I’m older~~! I think I was 20 years old until quite recently~~!

Jonghyun: You are already middle of 20’s, aren’t you?

Yonghwa: I’m turning 26 years old in Korean age, and 25 years old in Japanese age.

Jungshin: I’m 24 years old, but I think I’m already older though… (In a small voice)

Yonghwa: We are going to turn 30 years old quickly.

Jonghyun: Yes, It passes by like a flash, Yonghwa-hyeong.

Yonghwa: Let’s take much time next year like we have a time to travel.

Jonghyun: umm, It’s hard for us.

Yonghwa: Really? (Sigh) Now we have actually the time to ‘Go Your Way’

Everybody: hahahaha~~!

Minhyuk: Now then we have the time to ‘Control’.

Yonghwa: We ‘Can Stop’ but not ‘Can’t Stop’

Jungshin: ‘We can stop’ (Laugh)

Jonghyun: We decided our next song will be ‘Can Stop’

Jungshin: Please tell us how to stop~

Yonghwa: ‘We want to know how to way to stop~. Why we live our life too hard and too fast~’

Jonghyun: ‘The age is not everything, don’t care about the public’

Yonghwa: We can compose and write a lyric quickly. (Laugh)

I think because you are aging gracefully, you can get a new chance.

You will have two summer festivals, Summer Sonic and a-nation. This will be hard schedule for you because these two festivals will be held for these 3rd straight days.

Yonghwa: Both of them are 2nd time for us. When the first time, we got very nervous though. This year, we worry another thing. This is that how should we do for knowing us using a short time. In fact, we had some mistakes last year on these festivals. But we are confident doing well this year! We really got nervous last year.

Jungshin: we took too much fighting stance.

Jonghyun: we were flushed with pleasure.

Yonghwa: We did too much. Let’s use our mind this year.

 bpasssept2014

You played in the same time with Linkin Park in last year’s Summer Sonic. And this year, you will play in the same time with Arctic Monkeys.

Yonghwa: I love Arctic Monkeys though!

Jonghyun: (seeing brochure) Queen will participate in the next day! Kasabian and the HIATUS too.

Yonghwa: For musician who play on the same day with us, I want to watch the stage of Superfly.

Since a-nation is an event that lots of Japanese artists will participate in, do your feelings different from usual?

Yonghwa: It is fun to participate in any festival. We used to have too much pressure for knowing CNBLUE. But this year, we want to have fun ourself. Now we talk about a set list.

Jonghyun: We just have fun not worriying any of it.

Yonghwa: I think a festival is like that. Although we have had experience as an Arena Tour, a festival makes us to broaden our view by seeing other stages of other musicians. Please look forward to our stage!

 

Summer Holiday

The theme is ‘Summer Break’ . They talked us their memories when they were students and their ideal summer break.

Yonghwa: Since there is an important exam for entering university when the last year of high school in Korea, we should study for it a lot. But I lied that I go and study with friends, I went Haeundae with classmate.

We prepared school spirit tee shirts, had fun a lot. That was one of my good memories. It was an unforgettable memory. At the end, we were found by teachers and caught lying.

Were all of youboys?

Yonghwa: I was in the class that was all boys. No girls (Laugh)

Minhyuk: My unforgettable memory is going beach with friends and eating delicious foods. I could only go nearby, so I want to go some distance beach.

Is Minyuk from Seoul?

Yonghwa: He is from Ilsan (adjacent city of Seoul). And Jungshin too.

Jonghyun: Ilsan is near to Seoul.

From your perspective, it might be… (Laugh)

Yonghwa: ohhh, I really want to go Hawaii, Hawaii~ (in rap-ish)

Jungshin: I don’t say Boracay island or Mediterranean sea, but I want to go some beautiful ocean like Okinawa and make great memories.

Jonghyun: I want to go Okinawa too.

Yonghwa: Haven’t you been to Okinawa?

Minhyuk: Never. You went there for your drama shooting.

Yonghwa: You have never been there. Okinawa is great!! The color of the ocean is emerald green! It was very beautiful.

Minhyuk: sounds good

Yonghwa: There is a kind of noodle like Udon in Okinawa, isn’t it?

It is Okinawa Soba

Yonghwa: It is delicious.

Jonghyun: Whenever I eat Udon, it’s same.

Jungshin: I wish I could go to Okinawa

 bpasssept2014

There are some artist who finished their concert tour in Okinawa.

Yonghwa: If we could do that it would be great!

Jonghyun: Concert in Okinawa, Okinawa, Okinawa~

Yonghwa: Don’t you think Okinawa and Cheju are similar? Um, the color of the ocean is different.

Jonghyun: I think because they are close.

Jungshin: How about the plan that we have our concert in Jeju and Japanese fans get to come there with sightseeing in Jeju.

Yonghwa: If Japanese fans would come in Korea, I recommend Haeundae! I want to let fans know there is such a beautiful place in Korea!

Jonghyun: Haeundae is like a Las Vegas in Korea!

Yonghwa: I’m going to say it again, Haeundae is the best in the world!

Jungshin: When we had our concert in Busan, we stayed Yonghwa-hyeong’s home and he took us to Heaundae. Since Haeundae have taken on new dimensions and lots of tourist there, I was surprised about that. But that is the best for the resort.

Yonghwa: I think Haeundae is the landmark of Korea. It is the future city now! (He talks in Busan accent)

Jonghyun: yeah, the future city!

Jungshin: only some area (laugh) some areas are looking like the future city, but rest of Busan is a traditional area.

Jonghyun: Japanese fans should come to Busan and Haeundae if they have a chance.

Which part of Busan was  Jonghyun came from?

Jonghyun: Songdo. The area that has beautiful ocean and nature in Busan

Do you have any memories with that beautiful nature?

Yonghwa: Valley, Valley (*There are lots of mountain-valley in Busan)

Jonghyun: Since there is the ocean in front of my home…

Yonghwa: Speaking of a valley, the leech!

Jungshin: eh? The leech?

Yonghwa: they are in the valley.

Jungshin: That’s Busan…(in a small voice) (*Ilsan is commuter town)

Jonghyun: I used to go diving a lot.

You used to do Judo, didn’t you? You can do both of an athletic sports and an ocean sports.

 

Jonghyun: Everybody can do it if they live a seaside. Hahaha (say proudly).

Does CNBLUE Give Fans a Happiness Disease!?

This is now a hot topic among an internet-user.
One day, a mother complained of chest pain. The pain is getting worse, and she finally vomited. Since she was suspected of having a myocardial infarction, her family took care of her through the night. But the next morning a doctor said disease name ‘bicipital tendinitis’.  It seemed caused by too much waving the light stick in TVXQ’s concert.

An internet user who lost the sense of little finger and ring finger got ‘cubital tunnel syndrome’. This disease is often the case with professional carpenters, and It is a condition that comes from the overuse of the elbow. But of course, this internet user is not a carpenter. This disease is because of CNBLUE Yonghwa’s elbow dance. She danced this elbow dance with Yonghwa in their concert.

Yonghwa have started this dance from the performance in Taiwan on their World Tour ‘BLUE MOON’. The dance had called just an ‘arm wave’ or ‘elbow dance’, but recently it is called ‘Morago’, comes from the lyric of this song ‘I’m Sorry’. The muscle ache after this elbow dance is called ‘Morago-tuu’

CNBLUE Yonghwa morago

A lot of memories and pain come after you were with your favorite artist. This might also happy memories for fans.
