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!

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.”

Mini Q and A

*Name*

Lee Jonghyun

*Where and how situation do you want fans to listen to your album?*

From the morning to go to bed.

*Peter Pan appears in the lyric of ‘Moonlight Swing’. What is your most memorable picture book?*

Peter Pan

*How is Peter Pan for you??*

An enviable existence.

Lee Jonghyun Interview by Steady. August 2016 Issue

160724 Steady mag1

“I want fans to enjoy the music and me that are different from CNBLUE”

We must become happier when we found the reason for trying hard.

 

How did you feel when your solo album release decided?

I decided my mind because lots of fans have asked me “don’t you do solo debut?”. In fact, I thought of taking some time off for a while since I worked a lot as CNBLUE last year. But members who still work hard told me “work well, not only fishing or trip.” (Laugh)

How is your album?

I wanted to make this album different from CNBLUE one. So, I asked an author to make a song. I think it’s a variety of albums.

The sweet and gorgeous scenes that all women long for are portrayed in the lead song ‘Moonlight Swing’.

At the first, I had the image like fairly story, but I added the theme of love for it.

This album makes us feel heal and cheer up.

I think a song doesn’t relate to an intent of a person who made a song. I sometimes make a happy song when I feel sad, on the other hand, I make a sad music when I feel happy. There are variety songs in this album, I want fans to find a favorite song.

How do you think the older women who work hard and strive for self-improvement?

Cool. I have an image that Japanese ladies are hard-working. But I feel sad when I see the ladies who are having big stuff. Working hard is respectable things, but I get worried if it would be the only things for her. I think we must become happier when we found the reason for trying hard.

Is there any chance to get excited by the gesture of the older women?

Wonderful women are a wonderful. Anywhere, anytime.

You are said to seem cool in CNBLUE, but, what do you think about it?

Since I am not easily nervous. But, I am like a fifteen-years-boy with members. (Laugh) I wonder I am not a person who is sweating the detail (because of too nervous).

Please listen to the songs in my album.
Working well is important, but enjoy a life.

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.

SPARKLING LOVE

ceci_2015-6(2)

Lovely couple whose beekeeping in ‘We Got Married Season 4’! One Fine Day together with this generation’s Brown Eyes Couple Lee Jong Hyun and Bear Fatal Gong Seung Yeon which overflowing with love.

Editor Choi Sung Min (Pictorial), Yoo Jeong Soo (Interview)
Photographer Mok Jeong Wook

CeCi: For today’s pictorial the skin-ship level seems to be higher.

JongHyun: I am okay with it but SeungYeon is very worried. I want to be comfortable by saying ‘It’s okay just relax’, that’s all I can say.

SeungYeon: I couldn’t adjust well quickly. Oppa (older brother) in my side said not to think about anything but I tend to concentrate on what staff said to me.

CeCi: We are curious on how you both determined on your appearance on variety show like ‘We Got Married Season 4’.

SeungYeon: Since I was a little, I lightly said ‘When I reached 20 I should get married’. Of course when I reached my 20s those dream faded away. But my thoughts on getting married in my 20s still remained unchanged. If not now, I am not sure when will I have the chance on prior learning on marriage, so that’s why I gathered my courage.

JongHyun: All CNBLUE members gradually receiving casting from this program. Up till now because of the star issue, we keep reject it, but since this year’s spring started I want to be in love. Some kind of measure which I can feel refresh and my curiosity arouse. Because the timing is right. And when I decided to do there are certain conditions. ‘I really want to be with someone that see though my feeling. If not how can we call it marriage, I cannot portrayed how person fall in love’. Perhaps this kind of person presence in reality, I demand production team to find my ideal type. And SeungYeon appeared. There are nothing to be worried about.

CeCi: At that time what kind of condition do you want your ideal type be?

Jonghyun An innocent person. I said she should be pale skin and have beautiful eyes. For sure I added this and that for it. (laugh) During our first encounter, even when we only said few words to each other entirely, the feeling is there. Not only beautiful but SeungYeon also very happy person so I liked it even more. Seems like it been quite sometimes I met such a kind person.

CeCi: In this program JongHyun positively receiving title of ‘Love Bee’ to his unfamiliar appearance.

JongHyun: When I chose and entered, I tried had to express the emotion. (CeCi: Your husband actively showing affection without hesitation, do you feel any burden?)

Seungyeon: It was a huge burden because I don’t know how to react to the situation. What kind of talk should I do, saying thank you or just let it pass with a smile, I am suffering to those inner conflicts. Now I make it fun in every situation. (CeCi: What kind of way?)

JongHyun: In our first meeting what I want to do I said it through words only and SeungYeon was really flustered but the reaction was very cute. When I see it again I keep on commenting it, but I am not sure since certain time I am being downed in to SeungYeon. These days ‘You should say this!’ At one time I want to get away from my wife’s comment. ‘Comment Bomber’ inside she obtained a nickname to my wife ‘Gom (Bear) SeungYeon’ with a smirk and reversed situation, isn’t it fun?

CeCi: ‘However we see exciting ‘Brown Eyes Couple’ there are reactions to it. How do you want to feel of falling in love?

JongHyun: I liked how I would be that time. You can see new things from me.

SeungYeon: Family, friends, and staff asking if I am really me. My two younger sisters asked how I peaceful side shifted. If they see the broadcast the question they asked the most is ‘If I’m really like that?’, I showed lots of aegyo (acting cute) than I think I could. (CeCi: So you are showing more aegyo than your usual self?) You don’t really see it right? How about you oppa (older brother)?

JongHyun: No, I could see it. I can feel it. My wife is like a Buddha Statue and with my effort I could unveil her aegyo this much.

“After I met Oppa I could feel unfamiliarly exciting. Spring has come and thanks to Oppa I don’t feel lonely and I could pass this spring excitingly.”

CeCi: In reality how about the reactions of people around you.

SeungYeon: They are saying how jealous are they and commenting like ‘I could see Heart in through Oppa’s eyes’, ‘Oppa seems like a nice person’. I am quite enjoying on how people reacted and it made me happy.

JongHyun: Rather than the person I met, it is more bothering to break up with a person you met in real life. Each of our member shared their thoughts and giving me warning on how I acted on screen. (CeCi: What did they say?) Of Course ‘Are you crazy’ ‘Are you in your right mind now?’. (laugh)

CeCi: Your character fits each other lethally.

SeungYeon: He inherit a cutesy act because he is ‘Busan Man’. There are time when he unconsciously acted and express serious and cute.

JongHyun: If there is a clock between me and other people, SeungYeon’s clock seems to move very slowly, but I liked that speed the most. I think because of that speed people thought SeungYeon looks like a bear.

CeCi: May 15, JongHyun’s birthday coming up. Do you have any surprise that you wait from your ‘Bear Fatal’ wife?

JongHyun: I want to eat Seaweed Soup together. (CeCi: Perhaps personally home-made seaweed soup?) Of Course! I am adherence to home-meal. How happy would it be to eat together on birthday. I couldn’t understand why people spent their birthday alone.

CeCi: All of you live alone. When do you feel lonely the most while staying at home?

JongHyun: Exactly started at 11 pm, I suddenly feel sad and hell’s gate was opened. ‘What have I done all this time. Why I did this alone.’ I complained a lot about life but weirdly when it reached 1 am at midnight I am feeling okay.

SeungYeon: That’s right. When the storm time passed, I finally could find peace.

CeCi: Two of you have lots in common and at some time becoming similar to each other.

SeungYeon: I am similar to Oppa (Older Brother) a lot, so I am having fun all the time.

JongHyun: We matched each other well. (CeCi: What kind?) Yes, becoming ‘Husband’s Effect’. Yeah, isn’t it normal to be more alike? (smile) We’ve becoming closer after stick to each other in Japan for 3 days 2 nights.

CeCi: Do each of you has your summer dream date course?

SeungYeon: I want to hold hands together till our hands getting sweaty! (CeCi: Is there nothing more lovely than that?)

JongHyun: A more refined looks unlike plain Seungyeon image.

SeungYeon: I have done what I want to do.

JongHyun: Everything’s all right but doing Judo together might be difficult. There are times I got cramped after doing it too hard. In summer doing awards report or hiking will be great.

SeungYeon: Although sports or walk afar are all right since Oppa (Older Brother) will teach me anyway, I want to do everything together.

CeCi: The concept shoot is “If we can love just for a day”. So, what kind of day would you like to be?

JongHyun: Doing nothing and just facing each other. SeungYeon Not need to think of the time we’ll be going our on way. I just love it now.

CeCi: Through 10 characters, please express how husband proud of his wife.

JongHyun: World’s Number 1 Pretty Wife! SeungYeon 10 character is not enough Lee Jong Hyun. JongHyun The Girl That Making Me Curious Even More! Because my wife’s character is onion.
