CNBLUE Lee Jonghyun’s Interview on Hanryu Pia Magazine 2016 August Issue

1608 JHHP3

Lee Jonghyun (from CNBLUE)

Jonghyun made his solo debut followed on Yonghwa from CNBLUE. The lead song of his solo debut album as a guitarist Jonghyun was SWING by big-band! He doesn’t play a guitar, but he dances in MV. Jonghyun, who tried new music style, told us his ruling passion.

“I’m an adult to admire child. I want to live more free”

26 years old adult who want to be pure. But we close up his view on love.

Yonghwa and Jonghyun. Both of them are vocalist and guitarist of CNBLUE, but they have an opposite temperament about their own music or stage performance. Jonghyun revealed long-awaited his solo debut followed on Yonghwa. Yonghwa composed all of songs for own solo album, but Jonghyun decided ‘SWING’ as a lead song that was composed by overseas composer.

“Because I didn’t think I could make a song like this, I chose this song. I think Swing is gorgeous and has an atmosphere of adult. In fact, there were 2 songs that we want to put as a lead song, and our staff recommended ‘Moonlight Swing’. I just respected their opinion because I stick nothing.”

Jonghyun wrote a prince who escorts a princess perfectly as a main character. And this lyric is very sweet that we never know as a CNBLUE.

He showed his lovey-dovey way with Gong SeungYeon in the Variety TV program in Korea ‘We Got Married’ tho, does he always do like that to a real girlfriend?

“I do like that for my lover. I only act gently in front of the girl I like. You know, the man who is gentle for every woman isn’t real gentleman. Because it is not kind if they make women to confuse, right? I wrote this lyric while I remembered my pure love. I’m living while I even want to be pure now, but I already 26 years old. I’m different from before, ain’t I?

Peter Pan appeared in his lyric. He explained that he wanted the character that everybody know, and Peter Pan is the pronoun who is dreaming.

“I’m an adult, but I pretend to not an adult. Well… I’m a man who wants to be a child. Don’t you think an adult is too much thinking? I suppose that It’s better we live simplier”

The songs that were composed by Jonghyun were 4 songs out of 10 songs in his album. He almost chose the songs that was composed by overseas composer. And more, he covered ‘I Love You’ by Yutaka Ozaki (*Yutaka Ozaki is a famous singer in Japan). His album has the world of various sounds.

“Because I thought that it was going to be a curious album than I composed all songs, I chose songs that not composed by me. There is a Blues that I like in my composed songs. I composed this song 2 years ago for CNBLUE, but members said that it was better to use for a solo. The songs for solo doesn’t have an impression different from the songs for CNBLUE, because I composed them both. It’s same at a base. This is why I chose the songs that were composed by overseas composer. I didn’t have a chance, but I want to make a song with another artist as a collaboration next time.”

Although he said not having a ruling passion, it could replace the word ‘flexibility’, and this flexibility might express Jonghyun. He also doesn’t have a ruling passion for guitar.

“I don’t have a ‘must use’ guitar. I lend my guitar that I used in CNBLUE’s concert mainly to Cha hun of N.Flying. I think it’s better to practice with various types of guitar for the young. Even if it is my precious, I don’t care. A guitar is just a guitar. (Laugh) It doesn’t mean that only an expensive guitar makes a good sound. Most important is a heart more than a good instrument or skill.”

[TRANS] 26072016 Kstyle News Interview – “CNBLUE Lee Jong Hyun Sparkling Debut! Swingy & Moody mid-summer night dream atmosphere for you”

r.580x0

After celebrated and greeted audiences with the 5th “Anniversary Year” of CNBLUE’s Japan major debut, guitar & vocal Lee Jong Hyun now having his solo debut. He is going to release his 1st album “SPARKLING NIGHT“ on July 27th. The lead song “Moonlight Swing” is the best tune to swing your mood, if you listen to it, you’ll have no doubt that everyone is excited hearing this. More than that, he will have his first solo concert in August, which will show off his sparkling stage and plays. We will deliver such a pure interview of him, no edits or additional things!

Congratulations for you solo debut. This is the other new side of Lee Jong Hyun which hasn’t been shown in CNBLUE, but is this what you expect?

Jonghyun : When I see it from fans’ way (or, point of view), I think it’s fascinating to only see what you’re doing alone by yourself, I think it’s entertaining.

How about the music?

Jonghyun : In CNBLUE, we also do deep blues which we haven’t done before, but it has a little differences (from mine). The lead song (Moonlight Swing) has the swing, but it also has an addition of blues, but in CNBLUE we really do various kind of genres for songs. However, in CNBLUE we also dare to take the challenge and change (the genre or style) like, “ok, now we will show up like this”. But for mine, I’ll be like “I recently like this kind of music”, and then try to reflects that.

It seems like this album is packed with Lee Jong Hyun’s favorite musics (or, genre). Above all, you’re interested of blues on the inside.

Jonghyun : Because I’m a guitarist, I’ve thought so much that someday I’ll do blues. It’s my first time to have my own album, it’s my own pleasure. I’m looking forward to hear what everyone think when they hear the song(s), it’s a pleasant (for me). Originally, I like blues. When doing a jam (jamming), I’ll do/play blues. Particularly, when (I) do jamming, blues will just begin (to play), but not everyone do (or, into) blues, right? So when blues was sung and the music has just begun, I have the feeling that I went back into the high school days or go back into the end of teenage year.

You’ve been addicted to blues since high school?

Jonghyun : In general, (play music) from rock to blues has the feel, but I think it’s (an) unusual (pattern) if move from blues to rock. But for the people who are playing guitar, I think there are many who has the same type (or, taste of blues) like me.

Blues is heavy (kind of genre to be produced or played), isn’t this album need a deep of work from you?

Jonghyun : No, I don’t think so (laughs). It may have some songs that can be listened to relax. In an interview you will often ask me “What is the concept of this album?” In fact, I didn’t think too much that sort of concept while I made this album. The lead song’s concept of this album is the only thing that I care to, it has to be easy listening, to be played as their favorite songs (or, genre) with other songs, or to be tried (in order) to be explored and take various challenges (to make such music). Actually blues music that we talked earlier was made two years ago. At that time when I heard (or, got the tune), I record it on my iPhone. The iPhone itself may contain around 100 songs on it, but 5 of them was chosen to be included to the album.

Do you record it in iPhone in any situation?

Jonghyun : I also sing in airplane’s toilet (laughs). This album also has one song which was recorded in the toilet. Actually I need one more song to complete the album at that time, so I was thinking “Because there are 100 songs (on the iPhone), I have to try to make it fresh (or, produced it further into a full song). So when I did live in Nagoya on May, after finished the concert I go to the toilet and sang “La, La, La~”, it felt nice. I recorded the melody in the toilet, and play the guitar when got back to hotel. I also often to make the lyrics on airplane. It’s not wasting time, isn’t it? I wrote a lyric and a full song when I went to Europe in one way flights, which makes the time passed.

What is the difference between making a song for CNBLUE and making a song for your solo album?

Jonghyun : There’s no determiner/standard/concern (of writing lyrics for both). If you’re saying about “Moonlight Swing”, firstly, in fact it has a different (kind) of lyrics. I want it to be a love song which has the lyrics to be said like “to enjoy ourselves with everything without worrying about a thing even from under a stressful condition, just like a Peter Pan”, then I want to hear it a little more and rewrote (if there’s some lacks of the song), and after that decide it to be the lead song. If doing this (kind of) song to CNBLUE might be difficult. If give it to the band, it will be difficult in a musical way.

[I’m going to do my own music. It’s like a hobby and it’s like I’m doing fun/good things]

r.580x0a

Did you proceeded it from the time when your solo debut planned?

Jonghyun : Because last year was busy with drama and variety schedules, for this year I think I’ll do everything slowly. So at the beginning of the year, the other members said “why don’t you just work? We all are going to work, what are you going to play with?” half-jokingly. “No, last year I’ve been busy, I’d like to rest this year” I answered. But one day in February, I called the CEO in my office and ask “do I not work? Does the album can’t be out/issued in the summer?” He told me “You don’t have time to prepare”, the CEO refers to the song that has been recorded in iPhone, and I said “there’s also another song”. The song slightly has different images from the song (made) for CNBLUE. If it isn’t the good song which can be convinced, what do you want to do? So at that time I asked if I can try to made the song better by sending it to other composers. For example, “Moonlight Swing”, I also asked if the song can be offered (any help) to other person (composers), I thought I can’t make it (if didn’t offer the help of other composers). And then I came out making my solo album, I made it and study (the musics), and I think it’s fun.

From long time ago before this, is there any feeling that someday you want to have solo debut?

Jonghyun : No~ there wasn’t any. However I’ve never thought that I would have solo debut. But I also often hear the office asked me “When will it’s done?” so I’ll answer “I’ll finish it in a good/right timing”. The blues song was made two years ago. But among 100 songs in iPhone, there are 10 songs which didn’t recorded by myself.

Upon your solo debut, what kind of ‘yell’ that you got from the other members?

Jonghyun : I said “I’ll do a solo. Will do live also in August”, and Minhyuk responded “I’ll hit the drum” because actually he couldn’t do it before since he was busy shooting for a drama. Jungshin also said “I’ll write lyrics”, Yonghwa later said to me “Let’s make a song together”, but, guys, I (will) not do it in Korea. But maybe I’m willing to do it (in Korea) (laughs). I appreciate that.

Even so, with no support from other members, so it’s more into a self-produced (album)?

Jonghyun : I guess I’ve never thought myself as a producer. Because a producer will gather many staffs for the music itself, but for me, I’m doing my own music just by myself. It’s like I’m doing a hobby and funny thing(s).

I think there’s a feel of a singer-songwriter, isn’t it?

Jonghyun : No, there isn’t any feeling about it, at all. I don’t think “music is life”, but I’m just like the others who has the same way playing guitar as a hobby, and doing it because it’s fun.

On the last year’s fan meeting you also said that “music isn’t a job, turn it into a hobby”. When do you start to feel that way?

Jonghyun :  It’s from 3 years ago. Until then, I have the feeling that “I’m a guitarist, I’m living my life as a rock musician”, I also do music for other artists as a composer. However, when it comes to work, I feel more stress. At that time, if I get more stress, I might purely enjoy the guitar, and got idea(s), so since then, I thought “I’ll stop refers music as a job”.

So now you’re enjoy doing music?

Jonghyun : Yes. Earlier, I even feel a pressure on myself when I’m on stage, “I’ll show my best to everyone today”, and also think “It’s the worst!” if I get a little failure. But now we will laugh if we made mistake. It became such a good idea to not be limited to music.

Does being an actor in the industry is also a hobby?

Jonghyun : Of course, it is. I don’t want to think (of it) as a job.

Well, what if I ask you “what is your job?”

Jonghyun : Then I’ll answer “I’m not working. I’m playing” (laughs). I love to play, music and actor and fishing and snowboarding, I’m doing it in order to enjoy all of that. So, it all has become a hobby. For fishing, I recently fishing a flounder (laughs).

[Since I grew up in Busan, I think “romantic = sea”]

r.580x0b

“Moonlight Swing”, under the moonlight, but the song called…a dream come true. What is that you’re dreaming of right now?

Jonghyun : If anyone ask me “What’s your dream?”, then I’ll answer “I want to be like a normal people with a cool looks”. It might be a ridiculous dream…. Began to start (doing) music, was also the reason (for me) to looks cool. However, looking good = cool is different. People are all a good person in general, but is there anyone who have a good figure (also)? For example, Eric Clapton. So whether he looks so warm, I think I’m going to be like “I want to hug him!” Even during the live and if he had play on stage, or even he is outside the stage, he still looks like a nice person. I also want to be like that.

Although being warm, does have a little good-looking is ideal?

Jonghyun : Well, that would be best. Richie Kotzen (former guitarist of Mr. Big) is also great. He also enjoying music like it’s a fun thing on his life, yet he also looks cool.

In this song, you sing a romantic scene of a summer night. Please let us know a romantic night memories of summer that you have.

Jonghyun : I grew up in Busan, I guess “romantic = sea”. Because you can relax and go to the beach, and then go to the sea at night once you feel sad. When I was a junior high school student, I went to the sea together with my friends around 5.30 PM in the evening, we didn’t do anything, no speaking, I was watching the sun set all the way. Because while watching the sunset, I was in a deep emotion and think “during this life, do I just go around to see this?” I think it’s a bit like a funny thoughts (laughs).

When will you make your body and soul swing?

Jonghyun : When I think it’s fun. I also swing during live, it makes me want to dance when playing a fun song/tunes. I also danced on the PV, it was pretty fun.

Finally, in this summer, please tell us your idea about how to sparkling the fans.

Jonghyun : Please come to my solo live. I made a lot of songs to be enjoyed together with you, I think it can be sparkling while being played at the concert!

According to the straight response to the the interview at the studio and made such a cool pose, he conveyed his pure music and passion into words, without any edits. Even this time, we say Jonghyun is romantic. We told him and he respond, “Thank you. I want to be a romantic guy in all over the world,” and he laughed. We hope you’ll keep looking forward into the purely romantic rock musician’s first solo album and solo performances.

[TRANS] CNBLUE “Puzzle” Interview with eXcite MUSIC Japan

06_0101_01

 

CNBLUE’s first wedding song “Puzzle” finally released, and the official interview published

 

CNBLUE will release a new single, “Puzzle” on May 11th  which will be their 10th single. It become the band’s first wedding song.

 

Having 10th single on the 5th year anniversary of your debut is completed! It’s a sweet pop song, but what is the theme?

Yonghwa : Frankly speaking, it’s “Wedding Song”. On our 5th year Japan debut anniversary I have thought that it’s interesting if I have one song about wedding to be included to the album, so I take it as a challenge. I tried to make pop melodies and lyrics with a story, but also linked to the visual, such as a CD jacket and MV, or if you want to show a happy time, such as love and marriage, to your important person by listening to a song? CNBLUE’s “Wedding Song” can be the choice!

Jungshin : It is refreshing, but also has a pleasant sound to portray the early summer. When I first heard it, I honestly thought that it’s a good song.

Jonghyun : Yeah, it’s really good. The melody also easy listening and catchy, it’d likely be exciting to be performed live!

Minhyuk  : The song makes me move and feel the energy. It has such a bright atmosphere, I like it.

 

There were a lot of songs which made such a “conflict” to be picked as the theme around Japanese debut, but later the theme about love song follows in your Japan and Korean songs recently, doesn’t it? Is a love song is booming for you now, Yonghwa?

Yonghwa : It doesn’t mean it’s booming, especially for me, but because this time the theme is about “The Wedding Song” so it’s necessarily match with love songs.

 

When is that ‘turning’ time (to decide the song theme)?

Yonghwa : Actually, it’s rusted. I got the feeling like “it’s surely will become a good song”. Since “fancy/colorful lead song” thought was in my head, so I think that this song must be catchy. The arrangement is bright, the music elements consist of 60% upper band sound and 40% dance music. So CNBLUE’s band sound isn’t the main of it.

 

Yonghwa, the member said in a Japan fan meeting that you are “not likely into a marriage”, but do you have any desire for marriage?

Yonghwa : Hmmm, this situation (talking) about marriage is what I’m worried about! But, work is fun (laughs). Music is my top priority for now, I don’t have thoughts about marriage……. But, I want to make a happy family! We’ll go to the supermarket as a family on Sunday.

 

Among the members, who do you think is the most likely to be a great husband?

All : (saying at the same time) of course that’s me!

Jonghyun : I like to make a  friendly-family the most.

Yonghwa : No no no, it’s me. I’ll protect my family! I love them! That’s me!

Minhyuk : I think it’s Yonghwa, it looks like he’ll certainly protect them (the family). But I think I’ll try to make a cherish family the most (laughs).

Jonghyun : Well, that’s it everyone!

 

Let’s leave it all to them (laughs). In Puzzle MV, the scene where Yonghwa-Minhyuk and Jonghyun-Jungshin exchanging glances is impressive.

Minhyuk : Well, I think you can watch it by yourself on the MV, we carefully staring at each other and it’s embarrassing (laughs). Or, like, when we were about going to avert our eyes/gazes, we came out to laugh so many times. But for me, Yonghwa is the one who wants to go around and see what happen to us (laughs).

Jonghyun : For me, it’s fun to look at Jungshin. Because he’s currently on shooting a drama so he focus to be really on act. That’s cool, good!

 

The MV scene was a reminiscent of the last December’s Budokan circular stage, right?

Jonghyun : Oh yeah, but it’s unusual when it comes to play it on an MV filming. But, I’ve been practicing it during the rehearsal. So, it became like usual for us. We can play it comfortably.

 

What do you think about the pieces that’s lacking on Puzzle?

Yonghwa : Of course, the music. It may be far from perfect, but the goal is to complete the “Puzzle” to anyone!

 

I also want to ask about the coupling song. Take Me Higher is made by Yonghwa, it’s close to the music impression during Japan debut, isn’t it?

Yonghwa : Yes. It’s also lead to our 5th Anniversary, we made it to remember where we begin. I think it has grown up a bit compared to the old days (songs), there are many dreams come true. But some is still longing/craving, like, there’s always a strong desire to exceed the great wall. Looking back to the past, while we make our vision to our own destination from now on.

 

And another one song, Jonghyun’s Be My Love, seems like a gentle-sweet love song, I wonder why the lyrics written in English? Also, what’s the essence that’s needed for a love song to Jonghyun?

Jonghyun : I was making a demo in English from time to time. This song may have more meaning by it’s words in Japanese, but because it’s better to sing it in your own words (in your preferred language) so it’ll be easier to control the emotions, feelings, and a delicate nuances, and I want to straightly convey the “poetic sentiment”. The essence…..when you make a love song you have to mash up the past, the reality, and the future in the delusion (laughs).

 

From May 22nd, SPRING LIVE 2016 We’re like a puzzle~』will start. Because the last Budokan concert in December was  great, we also expect the same for this time!

Yonghwa : I think it was a trance in Budokan, it’s me (laughs). It was really good and fun. I think the first important thing to do when doing live is to enjoy. But, the power of our fans can make us feel it also. We want to be ‘one’ with you all this time. It’s either made just like the other tour or what…..but there’s a hint to the latest “Puzzle” song (laughs).

CNBLUE Lee Jonghyun Interview in Cosmopolitan 2015 October Issue

wpid-cosmopolitan_201510-3__zpsd7jc1ymg.jpeg.jpeg

HERO
Compared to Superman and Batman, a man who want to become an inspiration like Che Guevara and Eric Clapton, also his parents. The man is Lee Jong Hyun who hate himself but trying to find a way to be a main character of his life.

Photographs by:
Zoo Young Gyun

You drive yourself to the filming site today, we are curious on what car you bring. Did you ride a red sports car?

That was my dream car since I was a kid. Because <Aston Martin> is a Bond Car.

But don’t you think the color is very seducing?

I like that kind of feeling. Kind of sexy. I also decorated my house like that. Haha.

You live alone now, right? Today’s concept is an unprotected house after a sudden attack where you live. What is your real house look like?

For a man who live alone, I am a tidy and neat style. Whoever came to my house will say “Wow”, that’s how I decorated everything. I’m also good at cooking.

Wow, so you have many kind of foodstuff in your refrigerator?

There are mackerel, dried fish, seaweed and all sort of food. I also cooked steak myself. Besides royal food, I have confidence in my cooking.

What do you do when you are alone?

Almost nothing. Time to be at home is almost zero, even when I’m home I do my work sketch most of the time. Besides, I listened to music and play some guitar. Also drink wine.

You just came back from solo fan meeting in Japan. What kind of song do you sing?

Among all songs that we released in Japan, there are several songs that I made. I sang “Blind Love” along with few other songs that I like. And The Position song that was in Japanese like I Love You and One Day received a warm welcome too.

Oo, the “One Day” song that you want to sing in front of girls to impressed while you are in high school?

Yes, finally I sang it!! That was God’s Number One. Haha. This was the biggest achievement in concert so far. I am thinking of including it in the album.

It’s been 3 years since we met during your drama <Gentleman’s Dignity>. At that time, “I don’t want to give even a rose to a girl”, you seem a very blunt style. But not too long ago in <We Got Married>, you put a rose in a room, right? What happened to you?

I don’t know either. Time who made a man. Although I’m still young now but that time I’m younger than this I guess, so I said that kind of thing. That’s how Busan men mostly like, but since I live in Seoul, the fairytale of Seoul Man has changed. Mix? No, collaboration.

You are the latest to start a career in acting and entertainment. But recently, you got your first lead role in <Orange Marmalade> and been active in broadcast activities the most. It seems like recently is the time that change the most since your debut time?

There are lots of preparation process along the way. I am for the sake of CNBLUE members is very positive, the moment we were debuting, but they are more open to many area exposure. But me “I won’t do it”, “I can’t”, I will have to ask them to wait till I prepared my heart first. I cannot show people that I can’t, so sometimes I have no chance to show it. I feel burdened myself too. 2~3 years ago, I went to hospital because I feel very depressed. But as I keep learning, it’s getting better now. Now why I’m like this. Through philosophy and psychological book, I learned one by one and understand. I am not the type that into reading book, but I liked to pick a fun book to read.

So you like to read philosophy and economics book?

I read almost any type of philosophy book. Especially Marx. Last year, when I deeply fall in love with philosophy, I couldn’t differentiate which is real or imagination. Haha. When someone can talk and lead like Gandhi or Che Guevara, they becoming really cool. I think the gap is hoping those actions are right. But, after reaching the midpoint, I could accept the fact. I become a good person. I looked after the other person who becomes a great person, thinking what could change my thoughts gradually.

Among all the book you’ve read, the one that you want to recommend?

The book <헌법의 풍경>, even though the title feel really immensely, but anyone can read this book with fun. There is a saying in the book, “Body and mind are dedicated allegiance, shocking things that may appear as object together almost nothing,” we got to know the truth that we don’t know before.

What kind of book you read these days?

I read <어떻게 세계는 서양이 주도하게 되었는가> last week, and the book inside my bag right now is <금융 이야기>.

So, how’s the book change Jonghyun as a person?

My Instagram main post mostly like, “Just doing this and that and live to the fullest as a person.” Or “When I was a kid” Music is my work, I will do this my whole life. Now I find it fun, I don’t have any religion. I live thankfully and many good things will happen. I have found the ultimate goal of my life, “I’m gonna live like a free man, if you look up to artist like Eric Clapton, don’t you feel like some kind of freedom? A distinctive person who did work that he can do the best with smile.

Through CNBLUE second regular album <2gether>, you’ve made your comeback. Your title song is “Cinderella”, do you mean Cinderella inside fairy-tale?

Yes, that’s right. There is a curfew time to a relationship. When night comes, the girl has to go home, that’s when the guys go crazy. Then try to appeal the girl not to leave me alone. It can be seen as seducing the girl.

A “Honey Love” Jonghyun, that Cinderella. How did you do? Will you send your lovely girlfriend who want to go home early?

I won’t send her home. Haha. There are no better way than saying it sincerely than just roll you hair. Your partner will feel it too.

You have your own-composed song inside this album, what kind of song is that?

“Footprint” kind of Brit-Pop Style song. As you walk through this path, you will find footprint along the way of people who have the same worry as yours, you are not alone. Meaning you have to cheer up. Also ‘Hero’, dedicated to my parents. My parents are greater than Superman, Batman and Spiderman.

After your comeback, any other activities plan?

I want to show a great stage. To the people who saw it will feel “The team is still fun to watch”. I am planning to have my solo album next year.

Right! You said to your mom last year that you will have an album “Next Year”. You mean this year, right?

That ‘next year’, year 2016. Haha!

Yonghwa: Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson. I went to see Bruno Mars’s concert in Korea.
Minhyuk: Kim Kwangsuk-ssi.
Jungshin: Jung Yonghwa who has released his own solo album! And I like Coldplay.

8. Do you have some changes about the musical environment around you?

Yonghwa: The environment hasn’t changed, but my feeling changes every single day. What’s my feeling now? A secret (Laugh)
Minhyuk: Since I can relax myself, I like the slow tempo song. But I came to listen an electro, hard rock and hip hop recently.
Jonghyun: Sam Smith and White Snake. I’ve listened old song, ‘Crying In The Rain’ by White Snake is so cool!

Jonghyun: I’ve made about 30 songs within a week (Laugh).

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
Jonghyun: Fresh
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).

CNBLUE in Excite Music Interview “White”

white15

Excite: We were surprised the synthesizer sounds of your latest song ‘WHITE’. This was made by jonghyun, when have you started making this song?

Jonghyun: It was when we had a tour ‘CNBLUE 2014 ARENA TOUR “WAVE”’ last year.. I had also another schedule like “2014 KINGDOM IN JAPAN-STARLIGHT-“,
I thought to want to make fun song. It was the same way to make a song as always, first of all, I play a phrase with a guitar, then tried arrangement with a PC. This song didn’t have strong sounds, but I’ve made more and more strong.

Excite: You’ve thought to keep going?

Jonghyun: Yes (Laugh) It might too much though (Laugh). Because there was the theme ‘Color’ this time, we thought it was ‘WHITE’.

Excite: We read the lyric. What does it mean for ‘WHITE’ for you?

Jonghyun: There are the light’s three primary colors, and these colors make white even if we mix them up. But in the case of just random color, if we mix them up, they make black. I think that people come to black thinking more and more.. So the theme is ‘be the light!’

Jungshin: For me, I’ve thought that Jonghyun-hyeong always made ballad song like ‘FOXY’ and ‘ECLIPSE’. I think this time’s ‘WHITE’ is different from our songs so far. So, when I heard beginning of this song first, I felt a little bit weird. But I heard it again and again, I’ve been getting the feeling that this is very good.

Minhyuk: As Jungshin said, because I like ‘Eclipse’, ‘Blind Love’ and ‘Never Too late’ as Jonghyun’s song style, I was surprised when I heard this song and felt that he challenged something new. And because this song has lots of synthesizer sounds, I thought “Actually is it our song?”, but I felt fresh about it.

Yonghwa: I also thought that this was a different song so far. And it’s different from the image as a song of CNBLUE ever too. This is attractive song that has refrain of synthesized sounds.

Jungshin: We expect our fan’s response after they heard this song.

Excite: What kind of charm did you want to add to this song by your own bass guitar play?

Jungshin: I think there is a feeling that Jonghyun-hyeong want to, right? So, I played my bass guitar along with it.

Minhyuk: When I was recording, I tried to play along the song. But We’ll arrange it after recording, so I stopped wondering if I play fit with the song or not. I think I play with freedom. Recently, I play drums
by my feeling.

Excite: The feeling that you want to try to be honest to my own feeling is getting more and more?

Minhyuk: I can say Yes.

Excite: The members talked about this song that surprised us, but this is just as your think?

Jonghyun: Yes. In a way it is fun for me. Am I funny? (Laugh)

Everyone: (Laugh)

Jonghyun: I think when fans heard this song, they would be surprised.

Excite: Have you thought that you wanted to try to surprise fans?

Jonghyun: I haven’t had that feeling before. But I have got it more and more.

Excite: Your latest album ‘WAVE’ was the work that showed your sound improvement. This time, do you want to show more changes or improvement in this single CD?

Jonghyun: Well… Actually, I haven’t thought deeply as same as other members. We have had 10 years experiences after starting to play instruments, so I think this change happened naturally. Even except the music, everyone is getting more and more improve while they are practicing. I can say the experience is important.

Minhyuk: I think so.

Jungshin: I think we leave our change to take its own course. We don’t want change on purpose, but let them improve with the passage of time Of course, we might try to something change meaningly. We didn’t think that we have to change this time.

Minhyuk: We surely have improved, but we don’t have some greed to dare to improve. I just did what I felt.

Excite: You just finished to take your MV for this song (*We interviewed them in Feb). We heard that a mystery man will appear in the MV. How was about taking the MV with him?

Yonghwa:… well, he is a strange man.

Jonghyun: absolutely. He was dancing till the end (Laugh). He is really barrel of laughs.

Minhyuk: MR. WHITE is stylish person and pretty Fashionista!

Jungshin: We have had a heroine or ourselves in our MV ever, but this time there were Mr. WHITE. It made us feel different feelings.

Yonghwa: We don’t watch that MV yet, but I impressed about the lighting that was really beautiful.

Excite: Yonghwa’s solo album have released in March and the other members have appeared drama. All of you participate actively in solo. Has something changed about the position of the band CNBLUE in your mind?

Jungshin: I think CNBLUE is such an another family for me. I have something good and something bad in my solo activity. When I am tired, meeting the members makes me to feel relieved. I meet them for working like this, I can feel like that I ‘m at home.

Jonghyun: I don’t think that the activity with CNBLUE is ‘the work’. So, the members do the ‘work’ in their solo activity and then relax here (=the place in CNBLUE). After relaxing in the place of CNBLUE, we go the ‘work’. I think our members are doing their best even if they are in a hard time. I’m proud of that and that helps me to study of life. I think I’ll do my best with them.

Yonghwa: …..

Jungshin: (look at Yonghwa) What is such an expression?! (Laugh)

Yonghwa: I feel like ashamed…

Jungshin: (Laugh) Sometimes we are asked “What do you think about the other members?” In interview. I really hard to answer it because I got some pressure. We are really familiar, like a family.

Minhyuk: We don’t live without family or friends, and everyone has them. CNBLUE is like a family or friend for me. I can say in a different way, ‘the water’.

Excite: They have existing as if it is common sense, but must have.

Jonghyun: We can say so. It has been 10 years since we met first, and we had been living together from we were young. So, I can say I miss it, in a both way of good and bad.

Excite: Absolutely invaluable like a common destiny.

Minhyuk: We want to keep being such a durable band, and have a cool concert. This is my dream.

Yonghwa: Even if we would have own family someday, I want to have a tour with these members!

Jung Yonghwa
Things that Yonghwa get into…”customize a car. “
I am very concerned about how I will customize my car? I don’t buy a new car. I want to be decorate them not only inside but outside. Of course I won’t to infringe a law (Laugh). A concept? It might be an American style? (Laugh)

Lee Jonghyun
Things that Jonghyun get into…”Philosophy“
I like philosophy since over one year and study it with reading books. I like to read a book too, and also like difficult story. Why do I have to earn the money? Why are we alive? I get basically precepts for my life. I am concerned about the economy too. But even though I’ve talked about them to someone, I am looked at like a stranger. So, I enjoy them by myself (Laugh). I got to know I had been living without thinking. I want to get a knowledge more and more. There are lots of things I have to learn.

Kang Minhyuk
Things that Minhyuk get into…”A comfortable bed“
I can’t sleep well during Summer, but I can sleep well during Winter. Because ‘a hibernation’ is important for me, I look for a comfortable bed. Actually, I’ve got a new one about one month ago, it’s soft and warm. But I still look for another one in good design.

Lee Jungshin
Things that Jungshin get into is…”A fashion & A dog“
I’ll appear a TV program about fashion in Korea, I want to learn about a fashion. And I have had Golden Retriever from Aug who was born in June. He is already 34kg, even he is still pappy. When I back to home, he welcomes me. His name is “Shimba”.
