10. What do you want to say to members with using just one sentence?
Jungshin: When we have each own solo activity, I feel lonely to not meet them! This is true!
Your new song ‘WHITE’ that was composed and wrote by Jonghyun and Yonghwa is so cool!
Jungshin: When I heard this song, I thought Jonghyun-hyeong can make a song such as it. This was surprising for me.
Minhyuk: This was different from our song ever. Since this has lots of synthesized sounds, I thought this was surely our song? (Laugh)
Jungshin: Jonghyun-hyeong had already put the synthesized sounds from the time it was a tentative song. That sounds were fresh for me!
Jonghyun: I haven’t wanted to put synthesized sounds in this song at first, but I tried to make it what I want while I composed. I have thought that if fans thought this was not like CNBLUE, but finally, I was able to make a good song for a concert.
Jungshin: I always say this, but I am excited about how this song works for our concert!
Yonghwa: oh~~~, good comment (Laugh). I think this might a song different from so far, but this is good for us to try something new.
Jonghyun: When we had a concert at the end of last year, I thought I wanted to have more exciting. If fans heard this song, they surprised and might think that Jonghyun got the crackers (Laugh).
Jungshin: Everybody knows that~ (Laugh).
Jonghyun: Yes, I am insane (Laugh)
The lyric is powerful, isn’t it?
Jonghyun: The lyric has a profound meaning. The lyric has a profound meaning. This song’s sounds is good for a concert, But I think if I wrote a lyric like mild, it would be too much. So, I wrote this lyric philosophically little bit.
Yonghwa: We have decided the concept of this album ‘color’, and then we thought about the lyric.
Jonghyun: There are light’s three primary colors, and it became white if we mixed them. But if we mixed all of colors, it became a black. I got an idea from there and wrote a lyric that we can live more simply.
Yonghwa: We choose ‘WHITE’ because it has a meaning of ‘Light’
Jonghyun: I’ve been get stuck how I should simplify expressions.
Jungshin: I was surprised about this lyric because they don’t seem to write such a lyric.
What do you imagine from ‘WHITE’?
Jungshin: Pure and young
Minhyuk: I have an image like clean.
Yonghwa: An innocence. The clean person.
You’ll have a concert in Osaka and Yokohama in this April. Do you think that there are some changes for CNBLUE’s activity after each solo activity?
Jungshin: Since we have an had experience together, I haven’t changed anything.
Jonghyun: When I have been in my solo activity, I’ve felt lonely sometimes. Gathering together makes me happy.
Yonghwa: We can help each other if we gather in. I think it’s cause to synergy effect when we stay together.
Minhyuk: I think having lots of experience is good for us, and it helps our activity in invisible form. But I’m not sure how it affects CNBLUE concretely. I might be changed something through the upcoming concert (Laugh).
