This is a first try to gather the concert FNC artist  at once, The first day is called Fantastic Day and second day is being called Crazy Days. The set list will be changed in each day.


The stage was like a castle wall as named KINGDOM, and was surrounded by the audience. CNBLUE who had the honor of closing last day appeared in the warm blue light on the stage. The first song is ‘Like a Child’ that is from their new album ‘Can’t Stop’.  And then they showed ‘Can’t Stop’ that is the first showing for this song in Japan. Yonghwa said “I want to be the one with you. Let’s sing with us!” and the fans sing along with them ‘Love Light’, ‘Starlit Night’ and etc. CNBLUE seemed happy because that is the first live in Budokan. Although they played a warm song with Piano and Acoustic guitar in the first of their concert, the venue was heating up at a stretch after Yonghwa shouted “I want to go to the top of the world!”, and they run through all the four songs from “Robot” to “Lady”. CNBLUE played nine songs all, this is fit to face the start of the Crazy Day.


N.Flying was next who debuted on an indie label on November in Japan and will officially debut in Korea in the spring. Their TV program “Chondamdon 111: How to way to become a star” started in Korea, they are received attention newbie band now. They sang 4 songs include Lady Gaga ‘Poker face’ that was re-arranged rap rhythm and their own composed song ‘Basket’. This genre that is called mixture rock that is defined by rap and hard sound would be one of the important pillars of FNC Entertainment.


AOA appeared after N.Flying. They are first girls group in FNC Entertaiment and that group has 8 people, but consist of the band in 5 people unit and a dance unit in 7 people. A band performed AKB48 ‘Heavy Loatation’ (AKB48 is an idol in Japan), and a dance unit performed ‘Mini Skirt’ that got No.1 in a music program.


Next is special guest TWO SONG PLACE. This is the group which was formed from the popular female talent, SongEunyi and FTISLAND Song Seunghyun who have the same last name. They performed ‘Age-Hight’ and AOA members danced as a backup dancer. To our surprise, CNBLUE Minhyuk attended and danced with TWO SOMG PLACE. Minhyuk said “It’s the first time to show my dance”.


Juniel performed after them. She came to Japan in 2010, and began her music career while going to Japanese school. And then she debuted in official in Japan in 2011. She sang three songs including her composed song ‘Everything is Alright’. She remarked “Because of today is ‘Crazy Day’, I’m taking everything out. “, and she called CEO Han Sungho. “I’m thankful for your love for me”


A special guest in this event is Lee Donggun. He was in the spotlight in the drama ‘Lovers in Pari’ and in the movie ‘My Boyfriend is Type B’, and he co-starred with CNBLUE Yonghwa in the drama ‘ Marry Me If You Dare’. He debuted as a singer first, this time he sang Anzenchitai’s ‘Kanashimi ni Sayonai’. The audience were enraptured by his sweet voice. He said “I’m singing in front of the audience for the first time 5 years. After such a long time, but I want to sing my new song.” And he sang ‘Oh I Love You’.


FTISLAND who is the first artist for FNC Entertainment had the honor of closing on this day. When their name was called, the Lightstick color in the venue was turned into yellow and these lights swung in response to Johnhoon’s guitar sound. Because this event was postponed due to Honki’s injury, this is the long-awaited return concert for the fans as well for them. The atmosphere in the venue became more and more hyper from the first song ‘Shiawase Theory’! Fans twirled a towel while the song ‘Let it Go’ and sang together ‘I wish’ in Korean. To say nothing of Hongki’s voice, his glittering aura and attitude of enjoying the concert gave a lift to fans. Powerful and positive sound tells us happy to become together with music. Hongki shouted “Play with us!” and ran around the stage. “We’ll do our best for playing a music together. I feel it is only for me” Hongki said. The last song was ‘Stay’ with Jaejin’s beautiful voice.


After the encore Hongki asked the fans “I want you are coming back to home in the happy feeling. Are you guys happy now? It’s enough for us, isn’t it?” This his word would be represented this event’s mean. In the last, Hongki called all artists out to the stage, and they took a photo saying “Congratulations on FNC KINGDOM well done!”. This event ended with the artists and fans sang “Like a Bird” together.


We were able to see the interaction across the group, but it is a first time stage to play on the same stage for FTISLAND and CNBLUE. This special atmosphere seemed to promote bonding between the family not only the fans and artists. Also, it became the memorable event with an unreleased CD that was given away to an audience. FNC Entertainment that is thinking a great deal of the artists and their concert could change the band culture in Korea, and would make a new wave in the world.

The much anticipated harmony of these two singers was evident in their duet song that was considered the same as “Music and Lyrics” and has gained hot interest from many.

Lee Jonghyun was currently busy with his overseas schedules like World Tour and Arena Tour while Juniel who made her official and national debut simultaneously last year with “Illa Illa” was gaining attention as the next generation female singer-songwriter. “Love Falls” was FNC Entertainment’s first winter season song project; and this year they were offering romantic and sweet melody to the listeners.

Trans: Marie Claire January Issue 2014 – Jonghyun-

Lee Jonghyun who finished his filming ahead of schedule take guitar.

He is the guitarist and vocalist of CNBLUE.

If you have not heard the song ‘I’m A Loner’,  you must have left Korea or you might be cloistered.

After their debut that left a deep impression on us, CNBLUE had not had even a day off.

Their album ‘First Step’ and mini-album ‘Re:Blue’ was released. And then they still have an Arena tour in Japan, and they also have a World tour that started in London.
This New year, CNBLUE have planned to go to NY, LA and South America, but Jonghyun has prepared for his solo activity during this tight schedule.

The duet song with Juniel ‘Love Falls’ is his first song that was shown “Musician Lee Jonghyun”.

“I wanted a song for the winter. I thought it was a good song for a duet with a woman singer. But I didn’t realize I had a sister who is good at singing. We are close in age but I thought she was like my sister. Working together filled my heart. ‘ We’ve grown up’ (Laugh)”

Actually music is not his first challenge.
He is good at sports, especially Judo, so he got a gold medal at a game when he was in middle school.
His parents accepted his dream as a musician although he was talented in sports.

“My parents don’t read me a lecture and don’t leash me in. They said that it is good for me to have a lot of experience. But they don’t support me strongly, so I think I have a high level of self-reliance.
I have to do all things by myself, I have to control myself. I always thought so. After I started working, I gave my credit card to my parents but they have not used it. It seems that they don’t want to put a strain on me. I think it is our style. Good.”

It seems his parents have made him believe that they would carry through rather than to watch him on the set sidelines.

When we talk with him, we can understand that.
He is a person with a healthy aura. He always does his best but doesn’t care about achievements.
He only regrets once if he has failed. He is an outspoken young man to think that it’s best to be able to do what he wants to do with the people who he likes.
“I found acting to be fun, different from music while acting for the first time in the drama, ‘A gentleman’s dignity’.”

“Honestly, 24 hours a day is not enough to me even if the activity is only for CNBLUE.

Because the more I spend in time for acting, there is no time for music. I’ll do my best for everything though, even if I don’t have a lot of greed and ambition. I thank to these days that I can do what I want”
Juniel who heard that said

“When CNBLUE was formed, I asked Jonghyun oppa if he wanted to do lead vocals. Jonghyun oppa said I’ll leave the lead vocals to Yonghwa. I only want to do music.’
But he works to compose until the morning. I have no idea whether he has greed or not.”

The truth of ‘Morning work’ was that.

“Actually the work was almost finished around 6:00 am. But staff would come to the office around 9 o’clock, so I waited them to come and I went back home.
If nobody noticed this, my feelings would not be satisfied (Laugh)”

CNBLUE is famous for the good relationship between members. Juniel said this too.

“Members gather and play a game even if they are having a day off. It seems that they don’t get bored with seeing each others faces.”

Before their official debut in Korea, they had live performances in Japan and strengthened their abilities.
They have experienced street lives with a small audience.
Fellowship and partnership has grown more firmly while having a hard time.
If being able to do what he wants to do with the people he likes is Jonghyun’s style, it could be said his dreams already came true.

“The members will be by my side forever. We will support each other without any conditions.”
