Does CNBLUE Give Fans a Happiness Disease!?

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.

This is a first try to gather the concert FNC artist  at once, The first day is called Fantastic Day and second day is being called Crazy Days. The set list will be changed in each day.

FNC KINGDOM 2ND 4

The stage was like a castle wall as named KINGDOM, and was surrounded by the audience. CNBLUE who had the honor of closing last day appeared in the warm blue light on the stage. The first song is ‘Like a Child’ that is from their new album ‘Can’t Stop’.  And then they showed ‘Can’t Stop’ that is the first showing for this song in Japan. Yonghwa said “I want to be the one with you. Let’s sing with us!” and the fans sing along with them ‘Love Light’, ‘Starlit Night’ and etc. CNBLUE seemed happy because that is the first live in Budokan. Although they played a warm song with Piano and Acoustic guitar in the first of their concert, the venue was heating up at a stretch after Yonghwa shouted “I want to go to the top of the world!”, and they run through all the four songs from “Robot” to “Lady”. CNBLUE played nine songs all, this is fit to face the start of the Crazy Day.

 

N.Flying was next who debuted on an indie label on November in Japan and will officially debut in Korea in the spring. Their TV program “Chondamdon 111: How to way to become a star” started in Korea, they are received attention newbie band now. They sang 4 songs include Lady Gaga ‘Poker face’ that was re-arranged rap rhythm and their own composed song ‘Basket’. This genre that is called mixture rock that is defined by rap and hard sound would be one of the important pillars of FNC Entertainment.

FNC KINGDOM 2ND DAY3

AOA appeared after N.Flying. They are first girls group in FNC Entertaiment and that group has 8 people, but consist of the band in 5 people unit and a dance unit in 7 people. A band performed AKB48 ‘Heavy Loatation’ (AKB48 is an idol in Japan), and a dance unit performed ‘Mini Skirt’ that got No.1 in a music program.

 

Next is special guest TWO SONG PLACE. This is the group which was formed from the popular female talent, SongEunyi and FTISLAND Song Seunghyun who have the same last name. They performed ‘Age-Hight’ and AOA members danced as a backup dancer. To our surprise, CNBLUE Minhyuk attended and danced with TWO SOMG PLACE. Minhyuk said “It’s the first time to show my dance”.

 

Juniel performed after them. She came to Japan in 2010, and began her music career while going to Japanese school. And then she debuted in official in Japan in 2011. She sang three songs including her composed song ‘Everything is Alright’. She remarked “Because of today is ‘Crazy Day’, I’m taking everything out. “, and she called CEO Han Sungho. “I’m thankful for your love for me”

 

A special guest in this event is Lee Donggun. He was in the spotlight in the drama ‘Lovers in Pari’ and in the movie ‘My Boyfriend is Type B’, and he co-starred with CNBLUE Yonghwa in the drama ‘ Marry Me If You Dare’. He debuted as a singer first, this time he sang Anzenchitai’s ‘Kanashimi ni Sayonai’. The audience were enraptured by his sweet voice. He said “I’m singing in front of the audience for the first time 5 years. After such a long time, but I want to sing my new song.” And he sang ‘Oh I Love You’.

FNC KINGDOM 2ND DAY1

FTISLAND who is the first artist for FNC Entertainment had the honor of closing on this day. When their name was called, the Lightstick color in the venue was turned into yellow and these lights swung in response to Johnhoon’s guitar sound. Because this event was postponed due to Honki’s injury, this is the long-awaited return concert for the fans as well for them. The atmosphere in the venue became more and more hyper from the first song ‘Shiawase Theory’! Fans twirled a towel while the song ‘Let it Go’ and sang together ‘I wish’ in Korean. To say nothing of Hongki’s voice, his glittering aura and attitude of enjoying the concert gave a lift to fans. Powerful and positive sound tells us happy to become together with music. Hongki shouted “Play with us!” and ran around the stage. “We’ll do our best for playing a music together. I feel it is only for me” Hongki said. The last song was ‘Stay’ with Jaejin’s beautiful voice.

 

After the encore Hongki asked the fans “I want you are coming back to home in the happy feeling. Are you guys happy now? It’s enough for us, isn’t it?” This his word would be represented this event’s mean. In the last, Hongki called all artists out to the stage, and they took a photo saying “Congratulations on FNC KINGDOM well done!”. This event ended with the artists and fans sang “Like a Bird” together.

 

We were able to see the interaction across the group, but it is a first time stage to play on the same stage for FTISLAND and CNBLUE. This special atmosphere seemed to promote bonding between the family not only the fans and artists. Also, it became the memorable event with an unreleased CD that was given away to an audience. FNC Entertainment that is thinking a great deal of the artists and their concert could change the band culture in Korea, and would make a new wave in the world.

CNBLUE ELLE ONLINE Interview

CNBLUE ELLE ONLINE Interview

elleonline1

We are interviewing CNBLUE who is 4-piece Rock Band in Korea

CNBLUE, they are popular  all over the world not to mention in Japan, and they do a world tour in 2013 which is a first time as a Korean band. Their documentary film ‘The Story of CNBLUE~NEVER STOP~’ will be released on January 17th  that included not only their world tour in Sydney, Singapore and Beijing, but also their secret live in Shibuya and their home in Seoul. We, Elle, interviewing them on a visit to Japan.

“We were filmed all of our private. So I worried whether it’s okay to be revealed or not. (Jonghyun)”

—What did you think when you had offered  about to film documentary film?

Yonghwa: There are many bands to film a documentary film. Because I have been watching the backstage film of them, I was honored to make our film.

Jonghyun: I know there are several international famous band’s DVD, but when I heard that we will be taken in such a film, I thought ‘eh?’ it is great but too early for us (laugh)

Jungshin: I have watched famous band’s documentary film like Bon Jovi, too. I felt the pressure that what kind of us do we have to show. But I supposed the audience who will watch this movie want to watch us as usual.

Minhyuk: I also worried about that, but I  take it easy. So I think we were taken our  well image more on the movie).

— Because documentary film is different from TV programs, you might have a chance to be filmed your natural self or without makeup. Do you have some request such a scene wanted to be taken or not wanted to be taken?  And do you have some funny episodes?

Yonghwa: We have been taken in our home, though, does it be used in the movie?

Director: Yes. Such as the scene that Jungshin was making a Doenjang Jjigae.

Yonghwa: We have to be pretended that we are good person before. Like Jungshin’s cooking scene.

Minhyuk: Right now he was still pretending that he is good person  too (Laugh). Usually he does not to talk too much  though.

Yonghwa: I have cared about a camera because they (Camera crew) have followed us whole day. I felt a load at first, but after time passed, we could show our natural selves.

Jonghyun: We were filmed all of our private. So I worried whether  it’s okay to reveal or not.

Yonghwa: We believe the director (Laugh)

Jonghyun: I have thought that was too much to be filmed. By end of the filming, I felt sad ‘omg, this is it?’. I thought a human being was such a thing after all (Laugh).

“We are happy to leave our world tour in a video” (Minhyuk)

—Do you usually cook like that ?

Jungshin: Yes, I do.

Jonghyun: No, No, occasionally

—The movie shows the scene that you get along well. Fans may be happy to see that.

Jonghyun: Yes, basically we are close.

Minhyuk: Rather, I think that such a scene was not reflected very much.

Yonghwa: Since I am an actor… I acted (Laugh)

Minhyuk: I worried about what my scene. I think we were filmed the scene that Jonghyun-hyeong and I did a soccer game

Yonghwa: We met first in Seoul, didn’t we?

Director: The first filming was in Taiwan but we actually met in Seoul.

Yonghwa: I was surprised that there are lots of cameras. I thought, what cameras are these for?

—This documentary includes the video of your world tour that is the first time as a Korean rock band though, how do you feel about it?

Yonghwa: I am happy that there are some countries where we have visited, and are some countries where we have not visited yet. Also, there is a country that we have our first solo concert. Since we have not known how much demand from overseas fan, we were moved that the oversea’s fans remember our songs and lyrics even though we are using different language.

Jonghyun: In fact, there are lots of scenes that not be taken about this world tour. At first I thought ‘the camera crew for this movie doesn’t come, it’s good!’. When I think back, it is better to be taken all of that…A human being was such a thing.

Minhyuk: I didn’t know when we were being filmed tho. Did I already say it? If I saw this a few years afterward, I would have felt new. Since our world tour was filmed in the movie, I think it was not leave only as memories, and was very good to be able to leave as a video.

—Do you want to say anything about your world tour?

Minhyuk: It is still going on, I want to say anything when it finished all.

Jonghyun: Still going on… (Laugh)

Minhyuk: I think we were able to have our world tour for the first time as a Korean band in our age would be very happy.

“My dream is a No.1 on the Billboard chart” (Yonghwa)

—What is your dream?

Yonghwa: To get No.1 on the Bill Board

—In doing to recording and to appear the TV as a musician, what is the show(concert) for you?

Minhyuk: I am very happy when I’m on the stage. When I do other work, I often remember that I am on the stage and I think to want to have a concert.

Minhyuk: We have many hard things while preparing for our concert. I’m getting nervous too. But when I got stressed out, I remember the happy time on stage.

Jonghyun: There are lots of type of people. In the case of us, we release a CD and doing a music activity. A CD is good, but we want the people to hear the music in concert.

Yonghwa: When I experienced a concert, I feel that I can get new myself. I don’t think I have to do that, but I feel something new  every minute.

—By revealing this movie, the people who have not come to a concert ever so far may come to your concert. Do you want what kind of person to watch this movie?

Yonghwa: I want everybody to watch this movie and to take an interest in us. It is good to be known there is a band like this.

—All members are good showing as an actor. How are you compatible with band activities?

Yonghwa: It is better for us that we have lots of experiences. Some people may say musician has to do music activity only, but I don’t think so. I am happy if I can tell the people the feeling of a joy or sadness by various scenes. Because It is only-one-time life, I want to experience a lot. And then these experiences would be reflected in our music.

Minhyuk: We cannot live to 100 years, so we  do what we want!

Even a snowmageddon raging outside on a frigid Tuesday night couldn’t stop popular K-pop band CNBLUE from hosting a nonstop rock party! The band hit the stage last week at New York City’s Best Buy Theater, turning a grumpy crowd complaining about the weather delay into a screaming one ready for some rock ‘n roll.

 

CNBLUE’s Blue Moon World Tour, which kicked off last April in Taiwan, marks the first-ever solo world tour for a Korean rock band, bringing with it the opportunity for East Coast fans to see CNBLUE live for the very first time.

cnblue_nyc_6-2

 

Kang Minhyuk (drums), Lee Jungshin (bass), Lee Jonghyun (lead guitar/vocals), and Jung Yonghwa (rhythm guitar/vocals) set the tone of the show with opening track “Where You Are.” No lip-syncing or choreographed dance numbers in this concert. Stage constraints on music shows like Inkigayo and Music Bank do this band no favors, because live performances are where CNBLUE’s talent really shines. Any lingering doubts about their live skills were blown away during blazing guitar solos, interlude jam sessions, and extended track intros.

 

The fact that they can actually play feeds into CNBLUE’s status as one of K-pop’s perfect-storm boy bands with their talent, good-looks, and incredible stage presence. The members’ excitement and energy was infectious, shown through all their playful interactions onstage, pow-wows around Minhyuk’s drum set, and huge, ever-present grins. Even so, Jungshin checked in with the fans every chance he got: “Are you guys having fun?”

And they most definitely were. At various points during the concert, the band members took turns addressing the audience in clearly-scripted, yet endearing English, eliciting much laughter and choruses of “Awwwww!” Yonghwa, frontman and king of charms, starred in some of the best moments outside of the official setlist. Employing his best American accent (“This city is the centerrr of the worrrld, right?”), he led short renditions of “N.Y. State of Mind” and “Empire State of Mind,” even beat-boxing his way through Snoop’s “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

 

The first half of the show was populated with B-sides and lesser-known Korean versions of their Japanese singles, which helped the diehard fans who knew every line stand out from those not singing along. Nothing wrong with that — in fact, the sight was a testament to CNBLUE’s reach beyond the music crowd. For example, all four members have appeared in hit television dramas, and fans of the band’s actor personas may not necessarily know every track in CNBLUE’s discography. And there’s always a chance that a ticket or two were sold on the CNBLUE’s looks alone. Hey, we know we would have been tempted if we saw these faces on a concert poster.

 

Perhaps aware of this situation, CNBLUE saved their hit singles for last, winding down the main setlist with angsty chart-toppers, “Intuition,” “Loner,” and “I’m Sorry,” before reappearing for their encore set in glittery Blue Moon tour shirts.

 

CNBLUE completed the US leg of the Blue Moon Tour in LA last Friday, and will spend this week performing for their enormous fan bases in Mexico, Peru, and Chile. But don’t feel lonely, East Coasters! Stave off the post-concert depression by remembering Minhyuk’s final thoughts before the closing number: “I can’t ever forget this time and place, this city, and you.”
