-The first world tour, what is your impression?
Yonghwa: At first, we was going to held only one concert, but by fans’s wishes encore concert was decided. Held two concert consecutively are hard for us, but we control strength well and has completed until now. Please cheer on us!
Jungshin: Because of first world tour, we want to show a concert who has world class as the title world tour.
-Which country do you feel highest?
Yonghwa: We held concert in Taiwan, Singapore and Thailand until now, it was great for me in all the venues. We hold concert in Hong Kong twice in this year, I felt that we do (the concert) at bigger venue this time, so fans (who came) increase. We did join concert before (KBS Music Bank), but this time is CNBLUE solo concert, so particularly I’m impress.
-In what point do you feel mature through several concerts and activities?
Minhyuk: Previously I didn’t have enough confort, but I can enjoy with members on the stage now. Whenever I feel so, I think growing up a little.
Jonghyun: At first I thought we have to play well only and couldn’t deeply think what must do in a concert. Now I want audience to enjoy our concert. I’m deeply moved by such words ‘Thanks for CNBLUE, I learned the guitar.’
–CNBLUE lead Hallyu not only by K-pop but also drama. What impact do you have by having both activities?
Yonghwa: Some of our fan loving us because of our music and the other knows us by watching our drama and start pay attention to our music. I appreciate our fans who come through our activities in drama. But CNBLUE is a band who is playing music, so we will concentrate on music. If we emphasize on musical activities, even if we active at other area, I’m sure everyone become to like our music. (Yonghwa implied that music will always coming first)
-Which moment do you like the best during a concert?
Jungshin: In concert when I play my bass and closed my eyes, I think many things. I’m happy to be able to play with other lovely member every time.
Yonghwa: We held concert oversea last year and in Korea in end of the last year. Those were concert anticipated by fans and us. Through those concerts, I felt that union of our fans and us seems to become stronger. I was deeply impressed. We will do concert in Korea soon, I’m looking forward to it.
