[TRANS] CNBLUE interview on anan web Japan

[Explore the K-POP Swamp] CNBLUE appeared! Who wants to be a president if you’re at work?! #21

 

Popular 4-member band CNBLUE celebrating their 5th anniversary of Japan major debut in 2016. Looking to the visual concept of their new song “SHAKE” we imagined that it’s about “salary man”, and “if you work for a company…” things. (Although it seems that work may can’t be handled if you’re in the same company with a such cool salary men…) Don’t miss the exclusive video at the end!

 

[Can I become a pen?!] Vol. 21

 

170314an_0623

 

“SHAKE” is decided (to be on) this summer with a refreshing summer tune!

For half of a year in 2009, CNBLUE performed their music along with their spartan training in Japan to take the root of a band’s culture. During that period, they went to live houses and had street live performances for over 100 times! Building a solid foundation as a band, we asked these 4 people who grew into a popular band and talked about their new song “SHAKE”.

—Please tell me about the new song “SHAKE”.

Yonghwa: “I want to cheer up the listener” is a thought when I put my feelings into this song.

Jonghyun: “Song Camp” is trending worldwide, there’s a way for the (music) creators to gather and make songs together, “SHAKE” was made by four people, Yonghwa, myself, one American and one a German. We’re immediately uniting and “let’s make a fun song”, it turned out like that.

Minhyuk: As soon as I heard it, it’s so nice, my body moves naturally according to the rhythm.

Jungshin: We’re glad to have a bright song like title song “Glory Days” on our 5th anniversary album to the discography of CNBLUE. It seems to be really fun when do the song live, I’m looking forward to that now.

 

—It’s fun to wrap up a colorful and pop MV. The stage is an office, but, if you work on a company what position that you want?

Yonghwa: Unconditionally a President (LOL). “NO. 1” is a motto in any industry.

Jonghyun: Since I don’t want to carry a big responsibility, I’m the 2nd place. I think being the director or vice president of an entertainment (company/industry) is suitable.

Minhyuk: I’m good as a Hira salary man (worker)*

Yonghwa: So, what if both of you come to my company?

Minhyuk & Jonghyun: …

Yonghwa: Think about it again! You two seems to be far from being used (LOL).

Jungshin: Me?

Yonghwa: Jungshin might be better. Yes, let’s have a contract!

Jungshin: How much is the monthly salary?

Yonghwa: 3000 yen.

Jungshin: I’ll refuse it politely (LOL).

 

170314an_0615

 

—There’s a lyric says “Today is about to high, isn’t it?”, what would you do on such day like that?

Yonghwa: Basically, it’s always high. Whatever I do outside is always high, but it will go down at home.

Minhyuk: I get in touch with my friends, driving, and play sports. Soccer, baseball, basketball, and golf, I’ll do anything. I’ll also go to gym.

Jonghyun: In my case, I’ll go fishing anyway. I was about going to go tomorrow, but it seems like the manager doesn’t want to let me go, so I tell a lie “no fish will come out tomorrow” (LOL)

Jungshin: I enjoy playing billiards with friends and watching movies in my personal studio to feel (or, to get) the mood high. I also do shopping. Recently, I bought a sofa to be used in the studio.  Since it’s going to be used for a long time, so I chose it well. Super satisfied!

Minhyuk: Hey, what studio?

Yonghwa: Minhyuk, you’re not coming in?

Minhyuk: No….

Jonghyun: It’s a studio or a work room. Minhyuk, since you’re practicing drums in a room that everyone use, so it’s no problem.

—On the other hand, have you been feeling down lately?

Jonghyun: A while ago. The manager says “no fish will come out tomorrow” (LOL)

Yonghwa: I, if I don’t have time and I can’t exercise, I’ll be fuzzy. But, since I went to the gym yesterday, it feels fresh now!

Minhyuk: Exercise will relieve your stress, right?

Yonghwa: Since Jungshin himself didn’t exercise at all, so I took him to the gym yesterday.

Jungshin: I, I don’t need to exercise because I have a body (LOL)

—Although CNBLUE shining the most during live band (performance), what kind of things that you aware about on the stage?

Jungshin: Before, there was a place/spot where I’m looking forward into and “I have to look cool (here)”, but now I’m not that conscious to it. It becomes natural.

Yonghwa: Eh?! It’s not the most natural thing though (LOL)

Jonghyun: Actually, Jungshin is the coolest one (LOL)

Minhyuk: (LOL). Anyway, it’s important to enjoy the stage. Since we have many nice songs, with “SHAKE” also, we’ll be glad if you dance at the venue.

 

—By the way, a new recruit audition will be held by FNC Entertainment and Warner Music as a team, right?

Jungshin: I just heard that (LOL)

Yonghwa: (Receiving explanation from manager) Everyone is welcome!

Minhyuk: Right now, it’s not only instrumental performances and songs, but also many kind of positions are required, so it will be serious, I’d like to give spiritual/mental care to those who passed.

Yonghwa: Minhyuk is kind of gentle/friendly.

Minhyuk: But it says “lie” in the face (LOL).

*T/N: Hira salary man or also can be written as ヒラリーマン (hira-riiman): a salary man with no title. Could be the lowest rank or lowest title of an employee in a company *cmiiw

Yonghwa

Born on June 22nd, 1989. He is in charge of vocal and guitar. He gets into R&B songs that were (played) in the studio! Even when he was shooting with cool images, he stepped out if he has a chance, and other members also staff were burst out laughing (because of him).

Jonghyun

Born on May 15th, 1990. He is in charge of vocal and guitar. Although he is in a super simple black pants and white shirt with no tie, his self-appeal is drifting. Actually, he took off one button just before shooting.

Minhyuk

Born on June 28th, 1991. He is in charge of drums. Minhyuk is a cat lover, he is crazy about the special issue about cat on “anan”.  He sighs every time he turns over the page, and keep saying “cute~ ♡”. After the interview, he took it home.

Jungshin

Born September 15, 1991. He is in charge of bass. During the interview, he was poked on the neck by Yonghwa who was on the next door, and suddenly become a “7-year-old child”. He didn’t move and was dodging in a cool way.

[TRANS] CNBLUE Members BEST 3 from rankingbox Japan

Jung Yonghwa BEST 3 Memories of Japan Major Debut 5th Year Anniversary

ks2

 

1st – Guerilla live in front of Shinjuku Station, Tokyo

cn-blue-in-my-head

CNBLUE went to Japan for a spartan training in 2009. While we had a poor-living together, we were active on the street and small live houses. On the first-time we sang in front of Shinjuku Station, of course, there are no audiences at all. But two years later after did guerilla live in front of Shinjuku Station we made our major debut with “In My Head”, and 7000 people came. At the same time in Shinjuku, the audiences were growing from zero to 7000 people. It’s amazing to remember about that now! It’s touching!

2nd – First time in Yokohama Arena

c-n-blue-392

“392” live is the end of our indie era. On that day, we were announcing our major debut through a press conference and told fans (about major debut) through the live (concert). For the first-time arena tour, it’s a turning-around center stage. At that time, I couldn’t remember what kind of performance I’m playing, but I still remember that my body was shivering because of a shining lighting and it was filled with a lot of fans. I was nervous, I’ve worked too hard, with a limited physical and mental strength, I fell down right after the live ends (LOL).

 

3rd – “In My Head”

imh

On October 19th 2011, CNBLUE made a Japan major debut with “In My Head”. It was sung live for the first time on “392” live at Yokohama Arena, when we announced the major debut. Since then I played (the song) live for many times, the feeling to sing it on each year changed, there is something different even if I listen to my singing (to that song) later on. That’s interesting. Also, when this song goes live, the tension will surely rise, it will become very hot! It’s surprisingly become hot while singing!


Lee Jonghyun BEST 3 Things to Seek on a Lover

ks4

1st – Personality

ljh

I think I’m that “nice” and friendly/kind person. But after all, the most important thing is about personality, right? I think that this is the most important thing for men and women to see for a partner. I’m that type who will aggressively appeal the person I like in a gentle way. I’ll try to find out what things that she likes, and will do a such effort(s) to fit with her and things that she likes. But I’m not that gentle to the person I’m not interested. It’s not that good in being good/kind to everyone. It will be quite rude/impolite even if you make your partner/opponent misunderstood (because of the good treats).

2nd – Thoughts

ljh22

I’m a person who can understand my own way of thinking, and, also the one who will respect other thoughts. My way of thinking is very simple. The policy is “to live happily right now”. Taking care of her is important, even work and hobbies are also important, but I’d like to do those happily. Basically, it’s the man who will try his best and devote himself for the woman, but I also have my own world, so I want her to understand on my way of thinking/thoughts. I also respect her as much as I can. I think it’s wonderful to have a relationship that can understand and respect each other.

3rd – A Family person

ljh33

It may be an old thought, but isn’t marriage is the end of a love affair? After all, I hope for the one who will become my wife is a family person. A person who protect her families just like my mother is ideal. Actually, I look at cooking as a hobby, I can make quite anything fairly. Even if I have to say it to myself, that my skill is pretty good (LOL). Since my hobby is fishing, I’m good in making a fish’s fillet. Last time, I caught fish and make its sashimi then put it in Jungshin’s house. I’m unexpectedly that homely guy as well.


Kang Minhyuk BEST 3 Favorite Japanese Food

ks3

1st – Sushi

kmh1

When I come to Japan, Sushi is the No. 1 thing that I definitely want to eat. I love every kind of Sushi! There’s nothing that I don’t like. Hikarimono and Sea urchin are OK. Since this promotion was only for one night, I don’t have the chance to eat Sushi, so I ate ramen for dinner with Jungshin. But then, I heard that Yonghwa and Jonghyun had eaten Sushi, right now, I’m a bit shock… I’ll definitely take a revenge during the tour, I really want to eat good Sushi!

2nd – Omurice (Omelet Rice)

kmh2

Japanese omelet rice with eggs are fluffy and delicious, right~? There are places that have this in Korean franchise/convenience store, but it’s totally different. That fluffy things are impressive. It has a deep taste/feel of the rice (LOL). I also choose an omelet on the menu of our 5th anniversary cafe (15th – 23rd October at cafe manduka Shibuya). In Japan, it is a dish that boy wants the girl to make, right? I will eat everything she made deliciously!

3rd – Bamboo Steamer Dish

kmh3

Right now, Bamboo Steamer Dish is a bit trending in South Korea. When I want to eat it, sometimes I went to the one (place which sell it) in South Korea. But, we can do/make it at home, aren’t we? Next time, I’d like to buy the “Bamboo Steamer” and make it at home. I like various ingredients on it like vegetables, but after all there has to be meat! But I prefer beef than pork! When steaming the meat with vegetables, it has a slight taste of veggies, but it all healthy and refreshing. It only steaming a simple dish, but this is a “simple is best” dish.


Lee Jungshin BEST 3 Favorite Fashion Items

ks5

1st Hoodie

ljs1

My recent favorite is parka hoodie. I love “VETEMENTS” brand. It has a coordinated stylish oversized street style. I usually like both casual and traditional style, I wear both, but parka hoodie is fun and easy, so, I like it. About my favorite fashion, I think you can understand it by checking through my Instagram. All the pictures are Simba? Ah, I’m sorry (LOL).

2nd Damaged Jeans (Ripped Jeans)

ljs2

Do you say it as Damaged Jeans in Japan? In South Korea, it called Destroyed Jeans. It (the name) seems strong in South Korea (LOL). I only wear Damaged Jeans recently. The damage itself is cool and I like the bigger one. A light denim color is better, I think the heavy/thick color one match for upcoming season. Damaged Jeans with Parka Hoodie, I guess if it all comes with short boots will be like a style for autumn.

3rd Accessories

ljs3

I think that the fashion point is a watch and a bracelet. I don’t wear rings and earrings recently. Watch is on left hand, and bracelet is on right hand. It’s a NO for digital watch. I like a classical metal belt, but now I love gold watches. I wear not only one bracelet, there are gold and silver one, both are thick and thin, a coordinated square and a chain, I like to put it well-balanced.

[TRANS] CNBLUE “EUPHORIA”Album & Japan Major Debut Anniversary ‘in-depth’ Interview with Kstyle Japan

CNBLUE released a new album to celebrate the fifth-year debut anniversary! “It’s filled with happy songs…I want you to listen to it to be happy”

 ks1

CNBLUE released their fifth new album “EUPHORIA” on October 19th on their fifth-year debut anniversary.

On the album, the lead song is “Glory days”, with other songs in total 10 songs, “Puzzle”, “Be OK” written by Lee Jong Hyun, meanwhile “Stay with me” written and composed by Lee Jung Shin, it has plenty compositions which leads to a “euphoria”. This time, they challenged to have an ‘in-depth’ interview. We heard about the album production and its secret story of their fifth anniversary, also we had a variety talk and also the tour that they’re going to perform in November.

―This fifth album was created along with the moment of five years of Japan debut. Please tell me what’s your thoughts to put “EUPHORIA” as the title.

Yonghwa: Ah, it’s Jungshin’s responsible to describe this, it’s him!

Jungshin: Yes. “EUPHORIA” in Italian means “happiness”. It’s five years after Japan major debut. We’ve got a lot of happiness from fans and also everyone in these five years, so we hope that by putting this title the happiness continues in the future. The songs in the album are packed with our feelings of gratitude to our fans.

Jonghyun: Since it’s full of happy songs, I hope that you all can be happy by listening to it.

ks2

―The lead song “Glory days” is a very positive song, I think I can feel happy by listening to it.

Yonghwa: It is, right? I put a message that “From the past up to the future, I want to spend the time, such as dreaming together forever”. Even it’s a lot more pointed toward/about us, but I wrote it for everyone who support us.

Jungshin: I think the mood will increase as soon as I listen to it, right? Even if it’s (performed) in the tour (the mood) will rise.

Minhyuk: Yeah, that’d be fun.

―In “Glory days” Music Video, there’s a child actor who has appeared in a lot of Korean dramas, which is familiar to Kstyle readers. Following the appearance (of a child actor) in your Korean song “YOU’RE SO FINE” this would be the second time (they have a child actor appeared on their MV), but it’s a fantastic piece.

Minhyuk: Yes. We want to express the world of the dreams that we saw when we were child.

Jungshin: On the solo scene, each scene is different. The scene where we’re on a studio set, and the scene where the child actor appeared are synchronized to symbolized members’ childhood, it’s like we created our own dream world.

Yonghwa: I have various shades, so I didn’t indicate a dream only, but dreams. It’s led from the scene of the child, he is walking while feel troubled and guided by the butterfly which is a symbol of a dream, and then going the adventure as he goes through the woods.

Minhyuk: The scene where I play the drums and I was hanging around is symbolized by the water droplets on it. It synchronized with the scene where the child is playing with water on the river. I like a quiet atmosphere.

Jonghyun: I’ve been surrounded by those sparkling, the scene where I got a look at the sky and pick it, it actually may can be done in our childhood, and seeing a scene which has things that can be done for a long time ago in a Music Video was a nostalgic feeling.

Jungshin: In the part where I came out, I’m like hanging on something like white strings, it symbolized a tree, which means an old memory and old things.

ks3

―Listening to the stories and see the Music Video, makes me understand it more. From the 10 recorded songs, started from “Glory days”, please tell me your favorite song.

Jonghyun: Mine is the opening song “Be OK”. I’m a person who always Be OK, so by made this song I hope that everyone can Be OK (and let’s be OK together). If you don’t want to be struggled or troubled, then let’s have some fun?

Minhyuk: Mine is song number 4 “Face to face”. It’s Yonghwa’s song, the lyrics and the song itself is unique. Somehow, the tune can make me feel excited.

Yonghwa: Mine is the 6th song “Royal Rumble”. On the lyrics I’m talking about the dream, the song itself has it’s lightness tune that makes me want to move my body naturally while listening to the song. It has a catchy melody, which can remain lingering on your feeling. I can imagine something while listening to a relaxing music.

Jungshin: Mine is the 8th song “Stay with me”. I choose it because it’s my song (LOL). When recorded my own song for the first time, it’s “Daisy” on the previous album “colors”, it’s an English lyric. This time is the fifth anniversary, and since it’s Japan album, so I want to make this song in Japanese. I think that it’s a good song to be listened, and I’m glad for it.

ks4

―It’s Japan major debut fifth anniversary. Right now, what kind of feelings do you have?

Jonghyun: When I’m saying (or explain) something it would be long, very long, so I think short speaking is better, so…..(LOL). (he may refer for other members to explain about it since he loves to talk a lot XD)

Jungshin: But, the point is CNBLUE’s live activities in Japan. Came in 2009 with the Spartan training, CNBLUE began from street live where we don’t have anyone to listen to us.

Jonghyun: If there’s no money, we always have ourselves hungry.

Jungshin: When we’re ready to have a major debut, and play live in front of so many fans, we could also take out 5 albums (for ourselves). It’s (a moment) full of gratitude.

Minhyuk: Not only about album and live, since we also planned a variety of events to commemorate the fifth anniversary, I hope everyone can join us, let’s enjoy it together.

ks5

―Start at Makuhari Messe Event Hall on November 2nd, until at Budokan at November 30th, for about a month, “CNBLUE 5th ANNIVERSARY ARENA TOUR 2016 -Our Glory Days-” will be held across the country. Because it’s fifth anniversary, I guess it will be good to see Yonghwa dancing during “Wake up” song like on the previous tour which shocked the audiences and is more than expectation?

Yonghwa: We’ll do our best (LOL). We want to do something special. Ah, not only my dance (hahaha). With new songs, there’s also new arrangements of the stage’s set. I’m thinking about what kind of thing that can make fans happy…… Anyway, please look forward to it!

―On December 10th-11th, the annual “2016 FNC KINGDOM IN JAPAN – CREEPY NIGHTS-” will be performed in Makuhari Messe. What kind of performance will CNBLUE have?

Jungshin: CNBLUE style has been decided and is a great deal!

Yonghwa: I think the set is about who is the KING. It’s a special set list! Since it’s not only our fans who come to the Kingdom, shall we compressing the nice thing about us? There are so many cases this and that, but don’t worry, we’ll show you the best live!

[TRANS] CNBLUE Interview on Haru Hana Magazine Vol. 38

b4b965c1dde73fa59a032cdd601f3c25

The new album, which was put their feeling of thank to the fans has been accomplished.

CNBLUE who marks 5th anniversary of their major debut in Japan will release their 5th album ‘EUPHORIA’. This album, which means happiness is the special one which was put their feeling of thank to the fans who spent 5 years together has been accomplished.

Yonghwa: Because this album will be release our 5th anniversary year, we made it with the theme of the feeling of thankfulness.

Jungshin: We are happy to have got the love from fans until now, and we are also happy if we keep offering a good music to fans. That’s why we named the title of the meaning of happiness for this album

 

—The lead song ‘Glory Days’ was made by Yonghwa, how did you make it?

Yonghwa: I wanted to make a warm atmosphere song to say our thankful message for fans. First, I wrote a lyric of that I wanted everybody to have a smile. We didn’t have any other choice as a lead song excepting this, because I made this song in consideration of the 5th anniversary from the start of making.

Jungshin: This is a good song for our 5th anniversary! This has a happy atmosphere.

 

—The album has 10 songs. Which one is your favorite?

Minhyuk: I like ‘Face to Face’, because its lyric is funny. And it has a medium tempo like ‘Don’t Care’ and ‘With me’ that Yonghwa-hyeong made before. It has various faces depending on my feelings.

Jonghyun: I like all of them, but I suffice it to say that ‘Be OK’, ‘Slavers’ and ‘Royal Rumble’. I made ‘Be OK’ and ‘Slavers’ for my solo. But if I made all of my composed songs for my solo, there would be no songs for CNBLUE. So, I decided those songs are for CNBLUE. I sang them myself first, but I thought Yonghwa’s voice suit them. Both of them were good.

Jungshin: I composed a song ‘Stay With Me’. I wrote ‘Daisy’ in English that has been in our previous album, but I thought Japanese fans were happy if I wrote a lyric in Japanese, so I tried it. I think Japanese is a romantic and emotional language. This song is a song that I put the message for the fans. Because fans are here for us, we were able to overcome big challenges. This is the message that we’ll support to each other.

 

—How did you have your recording process?

Minhyuk: We always record own part depending on oneself schedule.

Jonghyun: I gave an advise when the recording of the song that I made. I requested yonghwa to sing ‘Be OK’ to speak.

Jungshin: I was listening that Yonghwa-hyeong was singing my song ‘Stay With Me’. He‘s sung it to my image, and I was happy.

What do you want to say to the members when you look back at the past five years.

—This year is the 5th anniversary of your debut. If you named these 5 years like ○○days, what do you want to name it?

Jonghyun: ‘The days of my 20’s’

Minhyuk: How about ‘A short moment’ days? It seems 5 years are long, but look back it, it’s short.

Yonghwa: ‘Happy’ days for me. Because I had a happier time than hard time.

Jungshin: ‘We have a long road to travel’ days. I know that the 5th anniversary is one of an important event, but we can say it if we would have 10 year anniversary and 20 year anniversary. We still have a long way.

 

—Well, what do you want to say to the members when you look back at the past five years?

Yonghwa: I want to say to Jungshin that you grew in height than the time of the debut. To Jonghyun, challenge more to fishing (Laugh). And to Minhyuk, try to make a song

Minhyuk: I always thank to my elder brothers (Yonghwa and Jonghyun) making a great song. Although I haven’t joined to compose songs, I have never rushed and will never be. Now I’m satisfied to play CNBLUE songs.

Jungshin: I want to say to the members that I hope we’ll play together, even after 10 years, 20 years and 30 years.

Jonghyun: Thank you for your hard work, and we’ll go together.

 

—If you say to yourself in 5 years ago, what do you want to say?

Jungshin: I want to say myself that try to challenge a lot of things. When I look back at the time of debut, I could something like practice and more. And I want to say “ Be patient and win yourself”! (Laugh)

Yonghwa: I think I say “Envy you”. I had a hard time, but I think slightly that I want to go back. Because I was young, I could try to everything.

 

—The end of this interview, would you say a message for fans?

Jonghyun: Even though I’m not a special, Thank you for making me a person who can have a concert.

Jungshin: I wrote the lyric of ‘Stay With Me’ in Japanese for fans. I hope you like it.

Minhyuk: Thank you for being rooting us these 5 years. I hope we’ll make music and concert together.

Yonghwa: I am impressed many fans come to our concerts every tour. I wish I could have enough time to say thank you to everyone directly. Thank you!

 

★Personal interview

[Yonghwa] My nature of humanity hasn’t been changing by time

Q. The dance scene in your concert got good reaction, can we watch that again?
A. hahaha. If fans enjoy it (Laugh). Because I wanted fans to enjoy it, I might do that again. The things I want to do is an acoustic concert. If I have a chance, I’ll do it.

Q. You’ll appear the drama ‘The package’ in 2017, why did you decided to appear this drama?
A. This is the type of drama that we haven’t had in Korea, and I was attracted to this love story and the setting that the characters go to the trip. This is the warm story. I’ll stay in France two month for the shooting. I think it’s little bit long, but I’m exciting.

Q. What is your ‘First step’ in your life ever?
