MH: It is hard because it was my habits since I was young especially when I do not have something to do, I will absent-mindedly doing that. Is there any way to stop that habit?

Q.I think you do something right already (to applying lip balm). To keep your health, did you do diet?

MH. Neither diet nor not I drink much, water or juice, especially I love milk and yoghurt. But it not too good enough if I take carbonated drink. I eat well so I do not really need vitamin.

Q. A healty life.

MH:  I spend the time with another member, going out and have a meal with Jungshin, sometimes when we get bored at home we will have supper outside or drink together (in Korea there is place to drink and local snack who open in the night). I want to substitute my resting time with light activity.

MH:  I am nervous because this is the first World Tour. We prepare everything as  perfect as possible so we could leave a deep impression and audiences could enjoy as well. We will go to South and North America and Europe. Besides preparing for regular performances I have to think about some ad-libs too. Because we could hold World Tour by fans helping then we have to give them unforgettable performance in return.

dazed n confused mag7

Q. Are you perfectionist?

MH: The same when I act. I felt nervous when I do it for the first time. I think when I am on the stage, acting gives a big impact to help to create enjoyable atmosphere while I show off my musical ability.

Q. What is the difference actor Kang Minhyuk and CNBLUE’s Drummer Kang Minhyuk?

MH:  It seems I more like CNBLUE Kang Minhyuk. I am the type of person who observes a change day by day. While I am acting I try to change Kang Minhyuk as a new and different character.

Q. With a new character, what do you want to do in the future?

MH: Just like everybody who always tries the best to reach their dream, I want to work hard for my dream. I want to have spare time for self-improvement as well. When I was young I can concrete while I am listening to the radio, nowadays I only can do that by one ear (he means he just listen without any attention on the song he listens to). I want to be person who caring by a small thing. Even though, it will need a little more time, I think I can synchronizes my self with it

Q. Dazed’s concept for May issue is ‘Man of Beauty’, in your opinion what is the man of beauty?

MH: I think a man who knows when the right time to tell and do something without losing his attention to other people (he means the man who do whatever he wants to do but still take care with people around him). That is the real man.

Korean Interview

Q. 오늘 참 편안해 보여요.
A. 생각해보니 아침에 여유 있었던 적이 없어요. 신발 구겨 신고 나오기 바쁜데, 방금 촬영했나 싶을 정도로 편했어요. 정말 이렇게 아침을 보내고 싶네요.

Q. 촬영할때 보니까 팔 근육이 남달라요. 운동 열심히 했나봐요.
A. 이제 스물세 살이 됐고, 언제까지 마른 몸을 가지고 싶지 않았어요. 새로운 모습도 좋지만 자신을 위해서 웨이트 트레이닝을 하는데 어깨, 복부, 등, 가슴 전체에 근육이 생기기 시작했어요.

Q. 힘들지 않아요?
A. 워낙 축구나 야구 같은 뛰어노는 운동을 좋아해서 재미있어요. 흘리는 만큼 힘들지만 몸이 좋아지는게 느껴지니까.

Q. 몸도 그렇지만 피부도 좋아요. 비결이 뭐예요?
A. 피부에 잡티는 없는데 건조해서 보습에 엄청 신경 써요. 메이크업은 클렌징 오일로 지우고, 스킨, 로션, 에센스, 수분 크림 4가지는 발라요. 요즘은 빌리프(Belif)모이스춰라이징 밤을 발라요. 샤워하고 나선 바디로션을 바르는데, 아이리스 향같이 산뜻하고 은은한 향기를 좋아해요.

Q. 꼼꼼하네요. 근데 입술에 상처가 있어요.
A. 입술을 가만히 두지 않아요. 입술을 다문다든가 손으로 만지거나 침을 발라요. 립밤을 수시로 발라주는데도 입술이 터요.

Q. 그럼 고쳐야죠.
A. 어렸을 때부터의 버릇이라 고쳐져요. 특히 멍하니 있을 때는 그러더라고요. 좋은 방법이 없을까요?

dazed n confused mag5


Q. 건조해서 그런가봐요. 건강을 위해서 수시로 챙겨 먹는 음식이 있어요?
A. 뭐든 많이 마셔요. 물이나 주스, 특히 우유와 요구르트를 좋아해요. 그런데 탄산음료는 쏴서 싫더라고요. 그래서 녹여 먹는 비타민도 먹게 되더라고요.

Q. 건강한 입맛이네요.
A. 뭐든 먹어요. 원래 먹는데 체중 변화는 거의 없었어요. 그런데 중학교 2학년 이후로 요즘 최고 체중을 기록했어요. 운동 열심히 했더니 근육량이 늘어나서 그런가 봐요. 65KG넘겼다니까요.

Q. 월드투어 연습과 활동하느라 바쁠텐데, 스트레스를 풀기 위해서 어떤 걸 즐겨해요?
A. 멤버들이랑 시간을 같이 보내요. 정신이랑 먹으러 가기도 하고, 같이 새벽에 야식 먹으러 가고 술도 마시고 맛집도 찾아다녀요. 때는 집에만 있으니까 답답하더라고요. 색다르게 쉬고 싶어서 활동적인 많이해요.

Q. 돌아다닐 때 신경 쓰이지 않아요?
A. 비비 크림은 발라요. 피부에 노란 기가 도는데, 비비 크림을 바르면 아무도 모르고 피부가 화사한 느낌이 나더라고요.

Q. 비비크림을 바르다니 20대 맞네요. 4월이면 월드투어를 시작해요. 홍콩 콘서트 티켓이 5분만에 매진 됐다는데, 기분이 어때요?
A. 월드 투어라 긴장돼요. 남미, 북미, 유럽까지 가는데, 연습을 열심히 했으니 무대에서 최대한 즐기는 모습을 보여주려고요. 준비를 완벽하게 해야 여유도 생기고 애드리브도 되는것 같아요. 팬들 덕에 월드 투어를 떠나는 거니까 멋진 모습으로 보답해야죠.


Q. 혹시 완벽주의자예요?
A. 연기할 때도 그래요. 다른 배우들보다 늦게 시작했기 때문에 신경 쓰이고 기본에 충실해서 연기하려고 해요. 무대에 때나 연기할 제일 중요한 현장 분위기에 어울리면서 실력을 보여주는 같아요.

Q. 연기자로서의 강민혁과 씨엔블루 드러머로서의 강민혁, 어떤 모습이 다른 것 같아요?
A. 씨엔블루의 강민혁은 본모습을 많이 가지고 있는 같아요. 성격이라든가 일상적인 모습이라든가. 연기할 강민혁을 버리고 캐릭터의 새로운 모습을 담아보려고 해요.

Q. 새로운 모습이라… 앞으로 뭘 하고 싶어요?
A. 빡빡한 일상생활에서 챙겼던 챙기고 싶어요. 사람들도 거두고 싶고, 운동도 열심히 하고 싶고, 자기 발전을 위한 시간도 가지고 싶어요. 어릴 라디오나 노래를 들을때 거기에 온전히 집중할 있었는데, 이젠 귀로 흘려요. 사소한 것도 크게 보는 사람이 되고 싶어요. 시간은 만들면 되잖아요. 이제는 마음의 여유가 찾아온 같아요.

‘CNBLUE’ logo and ‘Blind Love’ are bright on the stage,  once ‘Where you are’ intro guitar sound echoed, it instantly raised atmosphere high.

‘Thank you for coming to our release event! We’re happy to held such a small stage after a long time! We can see all your face!’ they seemed to be fun, seeing 500 lucky fan chosen by drawing lots.

They played ‘I’m sorry’ who topped in Korean chart and ‘Kimio’ who played acrostic version at fan meeting, these two songs as original version. Members came in front of the stage, drove fans crazy.

Many Korean songs were played at fan meeting, but the songs released in Japan took a leading part at this release event, such as ‘In my head’ their major debut song, ‘Time is over’, ‘Blind Love’ was played the last,  to calm down the venue’s atmosphere.

On talk session, Jungshin imitated Yonghwa’s singing ‘Blind Love’, then fans followed him in chorus ‘Blind Love’. They talked about difference between recording as CD and playing at live. Minhyuk said ‘I think we may have difference impression to try recording with feeling when we do live.’

They impressed by the narrowness  stage, Yonghwa said ‘I once felt 500 people are a lot for us, but I heard 500 people are lucky fans now. I’m very happy to hear that and we can come here because of  your help! And we’re thank you for that.’

They are also talked about their memory in this visit. ‘Sashimi was more delicious for me than meat, I was deeply moved!’ Minhyuk said, ‘I like shabu-shabu, especially I like eating it with ponzu!’ this was Jonghyun. ‘I like sukiyaki rather than shabu-shabu!’ Yonghwa followed saying. ‘ “One Litre of Tears”(Japanese drama) leave me a deep impression!’ And this was Jungshin. They seemed enjoy talking from food to drama.

And, Yonghwa revealed about shooting music video of ‘Blind Love’. ‘I had a shooting outside, I was feeling cold because of heavy wind. But the scene is used little…!’ Other members, only shooting in a studio, and said ‘Good work’ to him.

Jung Yonghwa AJ Magazine Interview

yonghwa on AJ mag

yonghwa on AJ mag3

Yonghwa
Guitar and Vocals in the popular Korean 4-piece band CNBLUE. As an actor, he boasts his popularity in all parts of Asia after starring in “You Are Beautiful” and “Heartstrings”. On April 24, CNBLUE’s 5th single “Blind Love” will be released.
Not your typical “K-pop idol”. He came to Japan seeking to be a musician, flew here from Korea where the band culture isn’t well established. On the streets and in live houses, he trained and experienced hardship. He’s a serious band guy.

 

“In Japan, there were so many unique bands that were beyond our wildest imagination. It was a culture shock. I’ve learned so much from watching other bands. I still do.”

 

“You Are Beautiful”, a drama he was cast in the middle of his training, was a bit hit. Riding that wave, he returned to Korea and debuted as CNBLUE. The band that performed on the streets of Shinjuku swept the Korean charts with “I’m a Loner”. Their popularity spread to Japan where they were filled up Yokohama Arena right before their major debut. Their first major album ranked top on the Oricon chart, and they also successfully finished an arena tour. Starting this April, they’re starting the first massive worldwide tour as a Korean band.

 

“I have no pressure at all about the World Tour. I’m excited to experience different cultures abroad, it feels like I’m going on a trip. (laughs) CNBLUE is a band, but I think our appeal to the world is that we have popular melodies that are distinctly K-pop. Of course, it’s thanks to other K-pop artists’ superb performances, and our unique position as a band within K-pop that makes us stand out. I think that the current K-pop and K-drama boom worldwide is helping us greatly in synergistic effect.”

 

As Asia’s top runner who aspires to venture abroad following Korea and Japan, what should CNBLUE do next?

 

“Recently, not only in Japan and Korea but the variations of music are becoming more and more rich worldwide. Diverse genres of music are bringing energy to the charts, and that’s what people want, too. They’d listen to CNBLUE but other music as well. That’s what I like. It’s not like I only listen to what I like, and I don’t listen to CNBLUE’s music every day. (laughs) I think it’s important to get in touch with many different kinds of music. Compared to when I debuted, the band culture in Korea has developed a lot. I want CNBLUE to be a band that leads that trend, a band that can suggest “the way” to progress forward. I have the same mindset on this whether it’s in Korea, Japan, or the world. Through our overseas activities, we are promoting Korea and Korean music, and it’s very overwhelming every time the Japanese or overseas fans support and welcome us. It’s been three years since debut, but it’s still really overwhelming. (laughs) Just this fact that I’m on the cover of “AJ” with a Japanese star, Sato Takeru, is also overwhelming. Certainly, it’s an incredible honor. The photoshoot and the interview were so much fun, I hope to have more opportunities like this in the future.”

 

A common denominator between Sato Takeru and Yonghwa is that they’re both actors. Although he started in a band, what are his thoughts on being an actor?

“The pressures I feel as a musician and as an actor are quite different. It seems like my fans think the the difference I feel are very interesting, and so do I. I feel that performing as an actor definitely improves my expressions and performances on stage. It’s also connected to the music I express. I also think about going overseas with acting, not just as a musician.”
