Their (CNBLUE’s) ‘Hyung’ covering by kindness.
As the leader, Yonghwa leads the members. In photo shoot session, he had follow the request well, pulled Minhyuk’s hand and hummed with Jungshin, relaxed atmosphere.
According to him, we could felt that he was really enjoying being with other 3 members. ‘I make fun with other members when they acted amusing (in a drama), but I don’t praise them on purpose when they acted well. I want them to grow up strongly. Haha he told his unique theory as a leader. Is he strict? But sometimes he shows kindness by making and treats members Toppoki. How about its taste? ‘They said “good”. I have a confident to make Toppoki well.’
We asked him about the place who had associated memories with, he replied ‘Hongdae’ with his pure eyes. ‘Hongdae was the place where we met for first and we acquired experience. Can be means, CNBLUE had started from there. When we visit (Hongdae), we remember those days. There are many live-houses, but Hongdae is a date destination for young people. Go there if you visit Seoul.’
Then, if you have a girlfriend, do you want to take her to Hongdae? ‘Not all the way there. I’m happy to go to anywhere else with my girlfriend!’
In the new song ‘Blind Love’, drawn the man’s heart which can’t forget his memory of his past lover, what becomes a man are you once you are fell in love? ‘I…… will call her many times. Haha I will call or text or go to meet her! my heart is weak.. but now, the most important is all of the fans. I want to tell them ‘Follow me!’
A man who can speak Japanese well and has his own way.
Jonghyun looks gentle and serious. But once the interview had started, ‘Instantly, I’m usually playful.’ haha. He replied with fluent Japanese! ‘We’re really funny! and friendly. We can laugh by looking at each other face. But we become so cool in stage. sometimes ourselves think “Who are we?” By the way, Yonghwa hyung is funniest, naturally, but Jungshin becomes talkative except at the stage (but I think jungshin is quite talkative at the stage too). Minhyuk is boringsome person even if he makes the effort for not to. I’m pretty funny, but I usually hide it!’
He plays the guitar and composes songs. He even plays the guitar in the dressing room. ‘But sometimes I want to do a thing besides playing guitar. Then I watch movie on pc. Recently “Black&White”, which was released last year who captivated me.’
Which moment who moved you recently? ‘I did live at Saitama Super Arena last year, we can play at big stage.. like a dream. I play the guitar lying on the stage as my performance, shouting to the audiences telling them it was amazing! It was valuable experience for me.’
He often goes to a certain place in private. But ‘I often go there now, to the…’ He cut off his word. Please tell to anan’s reader! ‘Um.. a mountain near Myundong, it’s the best for driving. I can refresh my feeling by going there, so I often go there to see stars with members when I have trouble with my work. I’m going once in a month. There fits for date!’
His smile that melt our heart♡
‘I’m very happy we can be on the cover of anan which Kimura Takuya appears too!’ Minhyuk smiled.
Although interview started in the early morning, but he just did vigorously. ‘But I’m happiest while I sleep. haha now it’s 9 am, I can sleep until tomorrow morning. My best feeling is when I’m wrapped soft blanket. I can sleep for 10 hours, so my condition is good, today was 5 hours only. but I’m ok, because I’m professional!’
He spent much time for sleeping even in the afternoon. ‘Hyungs practice the guitar or singing, but I just sleeping or talking. Other members bothering me by beating desk with drum-stick haha.’
The memorable place is Yoido in the middle of Seoul. ‘We live in Gangnam now, I have many memories in Yoido, by having lived there with members for 5 years. And it was easy to go to many tv stations then since it locates in the middle of them (TV Stations). I have to get up early now due to the place (TV Stations) are far from our house, and come back late…’
If you have a girlfriend, where do you want to take her for date? ‘I can’t go there if I talk about it here!’ He was bashful. ‘It’s a joke, I want to go Haneul park. Haneul means “sky”, we can see only the sky there. I want to walk holding hands with my girlfriend!’
Is it interlocked finger!? ‘I like to hold our hands like usual. I become to want to have a girlfriend, while talking about date.’
A funny prince who looks like a model
‘I like a prosperous place, I recommend Gangnam area. It attracts with many hotels and shopping spots!’ He introduced Seoul. By the way, if you have Japanese girlfriend, what kind of date do you want? ‘Firstly, we will go shopping at Kalosukil. There are many stylish shops, we are holding hands and date slowly ( not to rush to do anything). I want to eat Choppal together. The shop I often went is in Seoul, that shop has the best vegetable choppal! I’m sure she will glad!’
He is talkative and get rid his cool looks. ‘Among the members, Yonghwa hyung and I who talk much!’ They are often playing around, today too! ‘We are liven up with rubbish talk at house and scene! For instance, when we get up in the morning, Jonghyun’s dark ring are terrible, so other 3 members poke his into. Furthermore he said, ‘we attack Minhyuk because of his small face, we’re like a child? ( laugh) If there are tv programs about our life, I think it becomes pretty popular.’
CNBLUE had released mini album ‘Re:BLUE’, which was very meaningful product. ‘In Korea, the song made by members hadn’t been a title song, but we can make “I’m sorry” composed by Yonghwa hyung as a title song. I do feel we can grow up, we could carry out hard schedules with smile and possibility thinking about the bad things.’
