JungShin: Haha… that time YongHwa hyung asked if I want to write the lyrics together with him, we also discussed for a few times about it. Later on, I’ve tried my best to write the lyrics, it is titled as “3 thousand meter”, it describes the distance between separated partner is only thousands of meter.

JongHyun: Oh I see~ haha. But i feel that when people are serious, then they’ll be sexy. Just like when JungShin is performing with all his might. But when he’s sweaty, he looks like nerd/old-fashioned.
JungShin: What? Old-fashioned?!
JongHyun: Ah, no la no la, very cute. Hehe.

4) Currently, what is your favorite song?

JungShin: I like our Japan debut song; I feel that this song is suitable for all ages. When performing live, the atmosphere is good as well.
Minhyuk: Quite a few~ too hard to choose just 1.
JongHyun: Me too can’t just choose 1. Because different song represent different memory.
YongHwa: If i really have to choose 1, I’ll choose because it has been sometimes since we’ve released a Korean album, so i would like to tell our Korean fans, I’m Sorry.

5) What songs do you listen to recently?

JungShin: K’s ~
YongHwa: Bruno Mars’ songs ~

6) Started liking music because…?

Before leaving, we’ll buy a cup of coffee and drink while going home. Oh yes, we also listen to our newly released single, It’s suitable to listen as we go for a spin.

10) Wouldn’t it be weird for 2 grown man to go for a spin together?

JungShin: It’s okay for guys to go for a spin, our relationship are very good! (Mag author: Yes, I know that)

11) When you were schooling, did you refuse to wake up in the morning?

YongHwa: Actually how I wake up that time, i couldn’t really remember already~ But if i were to go back to that time, have to wake up so early everyday, i doubt i can do it.

YongHwa: Why not you are the main vocal?
JungShin: Ah, I’ll take back my words~ haha,

They are just like to play,
They are just playful,
And they’re CNBLUE!

YongHwa: Yeah, especially JungShin. He’s really noisy, when it comes to the scary part, he’ll keep screaming, thus we couldn’t concentrate. Actually JungShin’s screaming is scarier than the ghost in the movie.
MinHyuk: Other than screaming, he’ll grab our kneecap too.
YongHwa: I don’t really like to watch movie with MinHyuk too. Because while watching, he’ll whispering: ‘ it’s coming… It’s coming, it will come too… .’ I couldn’t concentrate too. (Author: seems like all of you are quite brave) Compared to horror movies, I’m actually more afraid of cockroach. But JungShin is a expert in catching cockroach, he’s actually quite good.
JongHyun: True, I also feel that cockroach is quite scary.

15)  Is everyday the happiest moment?

JungShin: Shopping online! I’ll buy accessories and shoes online. I’m quite happy while buying.
Minhyuk: A break time during busy schedule. That moment is the happiest~ hehe.

CNBLUE, Long Live Youth Rock and Roll

CNBLUE, long live youth rock and roll.

hottest start mag

This spring, they released a new album and also toured around Asia. Due to the 4 comprehensive developed members, allowed CNBLUE’s youth rock and roll to remain on the spotlight.

Doing happy music:

Q1: New title song, is composed by Jonghyun, what is the theme for the song?

Jonghyun: Firstly, I heard that the song will be released on spring, so i thought of trying a different style. As this is the first time we’ve decided to release a love song as title song, so I want to let Boices and more people to listen to. For example, when people heard of it on the street, they’ll be like “Ah, this song is nice” or something like that…I was with the thought of “I want to compose such nice songs” while composing Blind Love.
Q2: What impression did member have when listen to this song for the first time?

Yonghwa: I feel that this song can be singing easily with any vocal. Most of our other songs are usually emotional and has  very high pitch.  But this song’s pitch is medium . But I am not specialised in such songs, so it is a challenge for me.

Jungshin: From the very start, I thought that there wouldn’t be any problems with the recordings. But after we started recording, we realised that there is not enough time. So we are very stressed, but as we work with Jonghyun hyung, and record the song, we’re all very happy with the final result.

MinHyuk: There isn’t enough time but for the drum part is completed quite quickly.
Q3: This new album has got 3 songs, and 3 of them are of different genres. Which song do you put in most feelings when you hear it?

Minhyuk: The song that i put in most feeling is With Your Eyes .  When I listen to who makes me more relaxed is Blind Love.

Yonghwa: My self-composed song (Greedy Man).

Jonghyun: For me is With Your Eyes

Jungshin: For me is Blind Love. I feel that no matter who, also wishes to have true feelings when they met the person they likes.
Q4: Can you share your feelings before debut, that period of time back when you’re in Japan.

Minhyuk: Once, when we were performing on the street of Japan, we were caught and went to the police station. Back then our japanese weren’t that good, thus caused miscommunication. After we took our passports, the problems are then smoothly solved. After that, the Japan polices even treated us cola!
Q5: 4 of you had drama experiences and achieved an excellent result. Are there any roles do you want to try?

Jonghyun: I want to try action movies. Just like those that Jackie Chan filmed, with dress suit.

Jungshin: I want to try being a murderer. As the first time I act was acting as someone from a wealthy family, rebellious and is not sensible. So for the next time, i want a totally different role.

YongHwa: Because I’m a cheerful person, so I want role that is like my character.

Minhyuk: Recently, I watched a lot of literature and art movies, the picture is very mellow, and quiet. So if there is chance, i want to try a refreshing role.
Q6: Have you thought of how will you be like in 10 years?

Yonghwa: I think we’ll still be like this, playfully and happily doing music together. We might still live and do music together. Then ride on our personal helicopter and go around for sightseeing, this is just a dream! (laughs)

Beside musical interactions, they also participated in several dramas. It let them to be famous among Asia countries. This time they came Hong Kong again for concert, both concert are full, this shows how famous they are.

MC: What is your impression about Hong Kong?

JungShin: Speaking of Hong Kong, I’ll think of enthusiastic boices. Plus today upon reaching the airport, there are already a lot of boice there to welcome us. Although we did not see everyone,but we’re still very thankful. Everytime we come here, you always welcome us, we’re really thankful.

JongHyun: We already heard of the good news before coming to Hong Kong. There will be 2 concert in Hong Kong. Because of receiving loads of love from fans, we’re really blessed/happy. That’s why today our footsteps are very light. I believe when we’re  depart, we’ll still be happy as well.

YongHwa: Hm.. HongKong.. I’ve came here before to film Running Man . That time we went to quite a few places. That’s why I wish to come Hong Kong again. I feel like riding on the cable car once more.

MinHyuk: Everytime we come to HongKong, we always had interesting memories due to the enthusiastic boices. This time there will be 2 concert, therefore I’m very excited and looking forward to coming Hong Kong. We’re strive our best to perform, hope that everyone will be looking forward to it.

MC+CNBLUE: Lengzai! (Handsome guy)

MC+CNBLUE: I love you!

MC+CNBLUE: Beautiful girls!

MC: Since CNBLUE can’t dance, then how do you liven up the atmosphere and heat the fans?

-CNBLUE play the instruments live to liven up the atmosphere; YongHwa claimed to be a good dancer

YongHwa: Because we’re a band, we’ll use dance……….sorry. *Laughs*. Because we’re a band…..4 of us’ energy and band’s…all of our songs are self-composed. There’s a little differences between singing it live and studio-recorded ones. This should be the method to liven the atmosphere up.

JongHyun: Actually…. we don’t dance casually but when you looking at carefully, actually we somehow dance.

YongHwa: Actually I’m very good in dancing.

Narration: YongHwa said he can dance well, thus he should demonstrate for us. But he suddenly sang ‘s theme song instead.

YongHwa: We’re filming now, thus I’m afraid that someone else would copy our dance. I know someone will. Therefore as long as you attends our concert, you’ll be able to see. My hidden…hidden dancing talent.

MC: We are all know CNBLUE has a good relationship, therefore we want to play a mini game with them. We want to know our who is the pillar of support among them. Firstly, I want to know who is the most diligent one in keeping fit and taking good care of his looks.

*All pointed at Jong Hyun*

JungShin: Recently, Jonghyun hyung…

JongHyun: My self-body management seems to be working well. I’m working hard.

JungShin: Compared to self-body management, it should be more on managing looks. He even applies mask and washes his face on plane. Really!

JongHyun: Shouldn’t it be something good? It is good!

JungShin: Yeah, it is good.

JongHyun: I originally has the to-do-nothing attitude,but as time passes by, it resulted into a condition that cannot be remedied. Although it’s late, but I’ll still try my best to manage my looks.

MC: Who is the funniest among the members?

*Jungshin- 1 voteYongHwa- 3 votes.*

YongHwa: I think that JungShin has illusion. He thinks that he is funny, when he’s alone, he tries to make some trendy phrases, then he immediately uses it himself. So i feel like saying it once on TV, stealer! *Points at Jungshin* (I guess they mean YongHwa created it and JungShin stole it). I think I’m the funniest, I think my words are funny as well. *Laughs*

MC: Who is the most hardworking member?

*HAHAH They are all voted themselves.*

MinHyuk: The reason why I think Yonghwa is the most hardworking one is, he always composes songs and he is the leader as well! Although there are a lot of work, but he still diligently composes. That is why I think he is the most hardworking one.

MC: I want to know why you 3 voted yourself.

JongHyun: I composes too!

MinHyuk: But he’s the leader too!

JongHyun: That’s right..

MinHyuk: They are hyungs, that’s’ why they are all hardworking.

JungShin: I want to change my vote.

MC: Why?

JungShin: My finger pointed wrongly.

-Re vote-

MC: So who is the most hardworking one?

*All pointed at YongHwa*

YongHwa: Hm.. like fate, so I pointed at myself. But seriously, why am I the one? I’m not sure myself too. No matter what, thank you, although I’m not sure myself too. I’ve tried my best to look diligent.

MC: Who is the cleanest one?

*All pointed at MinHyuk*

YongHwa: JungShin always has the wrong illusion.

JungShin: My arrow is pointing at MinHyuk!

MC: MinHyuk, do you think that you’re the cleanest?

MinHyuk: I think I’m quite clean.

YongHwa: Just see his face, you’ll know how clean he is.

JungShin; His skin is flawless.

MC: Do you have any situation that shows how clean he is?

YongHwa: He is definitely not those type that is overly clean, that makes people feel uncomfortable. But whenever he takes his shirt off, he’ll organise it back before he sleeps. And when he wakes up, he’ll fold his blankets. Saying so, he should be the most hardworking one among us.

MinHyuk: Hyung is more hardworking.

YongHwa: Okay it’s me then.Yeah, he’s the first place.

MC: Okay next question, who is the one that got most to talk?

*All pointed at YongHwa*

MC: Woah, expected. But why?

Yonghwa: It’s an honour to be the first place. I.. just likes to talk. JungShin don’t quite like to talk.

MinHyuk: He seems to like talking a lot. Because he is funny, thus he can’t stop talking. It’s quite funny though.

MC: In a group, there will be times when members argue. Is there a member who is bad-tempered?

YongHwa: We’ll talk it out instead. Even if there is a bad-tempered member, how can we say it out? *Laughs* Excluding that, we’ll normally talk it out instead. So it’s counted as none that we must argue.

JongHyun: Maybe there are when we were younger. But recently, maybe because we’re together for long, thus we’ll talk it out instead.

MC: Is there a member who always act handsome? So all voted JongHyun? Why?

MinHyuk: Er..just that we’ve lived together for long, then we’ll have that feeling.

MC: Can you do a handsome pose in front of the camera?

JongHyun: Compared to posing, I prefer acting handsome while talking.

YongHwa: Everytime when JongHyun is doing a interview, I feel that he is trying to do a quote or something. Everyone will do a idiom copy for him. I’ll work hard for quotations. Feel like combining all the interviews and release a quotation books for him.

MC: Then do you think you’re like this?

JongHyun: Others will think that I’m such a person, but at here, I’m not.

MC: So today is happy to have a talk with CNBLUE and also played a game with them. I hope that CNBLUE’s concert will be successful. Thank you!

CNBLUE: Thank you! *Bow*
