CNBLUE TV Station 8/3~8/16 Interview

TV Station

Lee Jungshin (Bass)

 A food to survive in summer

Shaved Ice

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

Since I casted  in the drama in Korea, I really don’t have lots of private time. But when I get some time, I do walking to get refreshed  and listening music. Oh, I really love a chocolate milk recently! (Yonghwa said “No, Chocolate milk is mine!! *Yonghwa is chocolate milk lover and  that is common knowledge for fans). Well… That will be mine (laugh)

Kang Minhyuk (Drum)

—  A food to survive in summer

Loach pot

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

A radio control car. I play it with Yonghwa-hyeong and Jonghyun-hyeong at night. Even though it is radio control car, the speed can reach to 80 km/ph and can run on the glass or rough road. Only Jungshin doesn’t have it, he doesn’t want to do things same as everybody, even game.

Jung Yonghwa (Vocal and Guitar)

—  A food to survive in summer

Chicken soup (samgyetang)

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

I started to play golf. Because If I started it now, I think I can have a lead from the people who are in the same age. And I heard that it is better for getting a correct form. (He showed us the practice swing and received a rave by members.)

Lee Jonghyun (Vocal and guitar)

—  A food to survive summer

 Eel

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

Mixed martial arts. At the beginning, I like to watch and wanted to do it. Now I have been going to gym in Korea, I have got some bruise. (Jungshin said “Since you are very well to do it, you can turn out to a martial artist”). Oh,no, It is just a hobby!

This is the refreshing song perfect for live.

— What about the song “Lady” ?

Yonghwa: I composed this song. This is the refreshing song that was mixed nostalgic and modern melody, and perfect for summer.

Jonghyun: The tempo is good for live!

— What about “Don’t Care” ?

Yonghwa: About “Don’t Care”, the melody is an acoustic, and I put the feeling of gratitude in this lyric.

Minhyuk: When I heard this song, I could relax. I want to hear it again and over again.

Yonghwa: About “Monday”, I made this song thinking of people who is office worker and students.

Jungshin: I empathize some phrase in this song. I think it is the song that has an interesting atmosphere.

— Now you have the world tour. Do you have  any interesting episode?

Jonghyun: It was a first time to have a live in Australia for us. We have been to Melbourne and Sydney though, we were happy to hear all ticket was sold out.

Jungshin: Even though there is a long distance between the Australian fans and us, they know us and came to our live. I thought it was awesome to expand the culture.

Minhyuk: As a memory of Australia, we have a funny episode (laugh). We went to eat Aussie beef steak though, the steak was served well-done. Because the staff heard from somewhere “Korean likes well-done steak ”. The Steak was a little bit firm for us, so we could only eat a little. We were so sorry .

Yonghwa: This was an expensive restaurant…(laugh)

Jungshin: We were very sorry even I remember that now. Well, If we could have our live in France, I want to eat a real and fresh baguette.

Yonghwa: Then does that mean that the baguette to eat any place other than France is not real? (laugh).

Jungshin: Oh, no! It is not meaning so.(laugh)

Jonghyun: Since we will have Zepp tour in Japan from this month, we are looking forward to go various areas in Japan. Especially, I hardly wait to take crab and beer in Hokkaido!

Jungshin: We were talking about the food so far, (laugh) Because it is so close between the fans and us in every Zepp venue, we can feel our feelings directly. We are certainly looking forward to having Zepp tour.

Yonghwa: We will also appear in Summer Sonic and Rock In Festival Japan!

Jonghyun: It is the year that we have lots of live in overseas including Japan. We are supposed to be cooler CNBLUE getting things one by one. We will do our best!

<The episode of interview>

We had an interview in a happy harmony. About a story that Jungshin doesn’t want to do things same as everybody, (Ref. Minhyuk’s column), Yonghwa said “Jungshin hate us~!?” , and got a hearty laugh by members. Jungshin denied it desperately ^^. And during talks about Minhyuk mumbled “I am Cancer” ( *Crab is KANI and Cancer is KANI-ZA in Japanese). But Nobody reacted to it (laugh). Minhyuk said in sadly “everybody ignored me again~” and then it cracked up members.  These 4 people are so close as a real brothers.

CNBLUE’s Blue Moon Concert in Melbourne, Australia!

bmsidney87

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On May 31st, the 2013 CNBLUE BLUE MOON WORD TOUR concert was held in Melbourne, Australia and started off with a bang!

Literally! Rain, lighting and thunder all happened on the day. To all the fans that started lining up at 7am that morning, they definitely showed what you call dedication and commitment to your International artist! They were surely not disappointed by the end of the night!

The opening act commenced at 7:30pm at Festival Hall in Melbourne, with a traditional band layout and a massive screen at the back. It was 100% obvious that all our attention would be on the 4 amazing rockers about to embrace the stage.  As the lights dimmed and the sea of people screamed, a moon appeared on the screen followed by a futuristic video of the members of CNBLUE. Within a few minutes Lee Jonghyun, Kang Minhyuk and Lee Jungshin came out onto the stage and took their positions for the first act. Just before they started, our leading man Jung Yonghwa took to the stage and rocked out their first song for the night, ‘Where You Are.

bmsidney88

‘Where You Are’ was the perfect song to start the show. With a slightly remixed ending showcasing their amazing talent and Jonghyun’s ridiculously fantastic guitar skills, the fans embraced the song wholeheartedly; singing along as if they had sung it 100 times before. It was a clear indicator that the members were going to make their Melbourne fans happy!

Their next song was ‘Get Away.’ Throughout the song, our 3 guitarist completely embraced the stage. They were rockin’ it from one side of the stage to the other, and even back to Minhyuk, who was putting his all into every snare and drum hit making the fans go wild. Yonghwa would then scream out “everybody jump!” And that’s when you really felt the vibration in the floorboards of the venue!

One Time’ was their third song for the night. With a heavier rock intro at the start, red lasers shooting into all directions and a background video of burning buildings, the fans were all fired up chanting like crazy. When Yonghwa would sing the words “I know” the fans would sing back with “you know.

bmsidney90

The amazing acoustics of Festival Hall, along with the strong vocals and instrumental skills of CNBLUE made such a great pairing -leaving long lasting impression on the people of Melbourne. A sea of CNBLUE red and blue glow sticks waved around the venue and the high pitched screams of  the fans gave everybody goosebumps as they listened to Yongha scream ”top of the world.

After the song, Yonghwa spoke a little bit of English and surprised the fans by saying “good day mate,” one of Australia’s popular greetings.

bmsidney94

He then followed this with a “How are you” and Jungshin joined in by attempting an “Aussie Aussie oi oi oi” chant that sent a roar of laughter and screams throughout the crowd. This was very endearing and sweet! After Yonghwa said “Next” they began their intro into ”Man like Me.

Coffee Shop” was song number 5 for the night, with CNBLUE screaming out ”Everybody make one noise…..” the crowd responded with screams, rocking hand movements and a lot of jumping!

The age group at the concert varied from young females to middle aged women enjoying their dose of Korean rock goodness, bopping to the music and singing along to the songs. CNBLUE’s reach was massive and appreciated by everyone no matter who they were or how old they are. This is what make K-POP so incredibly strong and amazing.

bmsidney91

A Pink Floyd inspired spectrum of colour played on the big flat screen, rising and falling with the variations of beats and sounds, which paved the way for their next song “Have A Good Night.

Claps filled the hall for “Wake Up” as the disco ball came on and the flat screen, which changed into what reminded me of comic book artwork, showed the lyrics to the song. ‘Are you having fun’ and ’Lets go’ flashed on the screen in bright neon colours and lighting bolts. It was absolutely insane.

Throughout the song, Yonghwa was lifting the engagement of the fans even more by screaming “Say yeah” and ”Make some noise!!bmsidney95

Minhyuk and the other members grooved to the beat and sank deep into the music as Jonghyun showed an amazing guitar solo that was completely electrifying.

The music stopped and Yonghwa encouraged the crowd to clap, saying “Ok my turn! Are you ready? Ok, 1, 2 wake up wake up!” As the music slowly built up he went into a scream as the heavy drums, bass and guitar kicked in again for the finale of the song.

The band then decided to take a little break to have a chat with their Melbourne audience!

Yonghwa: “We love Melbourne … We love you!!

Can you speak Korean?

Annyeo?

Minhyuk: “THANK YOU!! We were here in Australia 2 years ago, we go Sydney two years ago, but this time we come to Melbourne!! I really love it here

There are many reasons why, but it is sick! Very sick!

Jungshin: “I love steak!

Yonghwa: “Medium rare please

We had steak yesterday, soooo delicious’!!”

“I can’t speak english…. A little…

Ok we sing love song

Next song is Love Light

After that super cute chat, the announcement of their next song sent the fans wild! I spoke to a few fans earlier before the show and this was definitely one song that they wanted to hear. A project by Jonghyun, Yonghwa started off the performance with a beautiful acoustic solo and then “1..2…1..2…3..4 Sing this song with me!” to which the fans sang along, as Jonghyun was at the bass for Yonghwa’s short rap.

bmsidney89

When the song finished the lights went off and reappeared again with the spotlight on Yonghwa for his beautiful piano solo.

The lights expanded to show the all the 4 members as they begin their performance of “Feeling.” I must say that looking around the crowd everyone had a look on their face as if their heart was melting, mine included!

As the piano faded out and the place got quiet again, a fan screamed “oppa saranghae!” Drums, bass and guitar as well clapping began simultaneously with Minhyuk’s drums becoming the focus. Screams were heard almost in sync with each hit of the snare. As the music faded, Yonghwa was left with his piano, playing yet another beautiful piano solo for the outro.

These Days” was next up, leaving the crowd in awe with Jonghyuns beautiful voice and jazzy feel to the song. The crowd was silent but very hypnotized at the same time.

After performing “Y,Why” the band decide to continue their conversation with the attentive crowd.

Yonghwa: “THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Are you having fun?

We too!

Minhyuk: “I want to come here again and again!

We love Melbourne

Yonghwa: “English very well

Are you guys having fun? Good day mate!

From now on hear our rockin roll music!

First it’s time to do dark sexy metal

ARE YOU READY!! LETS GO MELBOURNE

The ’dark sexy metal’ line was one of the highlights of the night!

La La La” was a great follow up after the previous slower song, and ridiculously hilarious conversation.

CNBLUE continued their heavier rock feel with “Just Please.” The extended instrumental piece of the outro was absolutely amazing and made us realize even more, that they are a force to be reckoned with.

bmsidney92

The next two songs for the night were “Tattoo” and the big hit, ”In My Head.” This was definitely a hit with the fans as they screamed wildly after hearing the intro, knowing exactly what was coming up next. Every time Yonghwa tried to encourage the fans to participate he never failed as an extremely loud roar always exploded from the crowd.

Yonghwa: ”I love you very very much

Tonight is Rockin ..I need more!!

So hot…ok from now on we have to get crazy

So I need your help…..I need you to scream!!

Are you ready Melbourne?!! Lets dance with me!! I’m dancing king of CNBLUE. Like usher, like Neyo, like Chris brown. I’m the best! ARE YOU READY MELBOURNE!! Lets party till the end!! “

The beat of the all too familiar hit “Intuition” started and brought on the biggest cheer along with the loudest claps and chanting I’ve heard so far. Almost every person in there knew the words and it really lifted up the atmosphere even higher.

With sweat dripping down their faces, the performance went on without a glitch or discomfort, showing true showmanship and dedication to providing the Melbourne fans with a outstanding show.

From the ending of “Intuition” this transitioned straight into “I’m a loner.” Another big hit that surely kept up the high energy level in the hall and sent the crowd into a frenzy.

bmsidney93

The ‘last’ song of the night was possibly the one everyone was waiting for “I’m sorry.” I actually got goosebumps every time the fans chanted “michyeosseo!” My favorite part was possibly the climatic alternate outro to I’m sorry. It was powerful and totally ‘dark sexy metal’ just the way Yonghwa wanted.

The ending of I’m sorry was meant to signal the concert’s end, but no! In true concert spirit the crowd sent roars of “ENCORE! ENCORE!” And “CNBLUE! CNBLUE!” trembling through the hall and as expected, our favourite band graced the stage yet again for “Hey You,” 1 of 5 of their encore songs.

When CNBLUE re-entered, they came out in black in their  ’Blue Moon’ concert tee shirts and Yonghwa said, “Thank you for waiting!

From an energetic “Hey You” they transitioned perfectly into “Love Girl“.

Yonghwa busted out some moves as the CNBLUE’s ‘dancing king’. He wore what looked like a zebra eared headband thrown by one of the fans on stage. This performance was quite comedic with their dancing and Yonghwa’s galloping across the stage.

Yonghwa also took a cap thrown to him by a fan in the audience, adjusted it and wore it just as they started their performance of ”You’ve Fallen For Me.” It was extremely sweet when they inserted “I love you Melbourne, I love you so much” into the well known title track from the K-Drama, ‘You’ve fallen for me.’

bmsidney97

After such a sweet performance Yonghwa also managed to get a hold of a sign that had ‘Dragon Flower’ on it and said “I Am Dragon Flower,” “My aka is Dragon Flower.” This was so adorable and funny that the crowd was left in stitches!

I must say that CNBLUE are well experienced entertainers! Their energy towards the crowd and their engagement was absolutely perfect. Their genuine personalities make you feel like their speaking to you directly. I also discovered that Yonghwas’ beat boxing skills are absolutely SICK!! Unfortunately for us, hardly any of us were able to repeat after him but it was great to see Jungshin laughing so wildly.

After their performance of “Love“ Minhyuk took to the mic and had a little chat.

Minhyuk: “I really want to come! I’ll come back for fun! I promise!!

Younghwa: “THANK YOU for your appreciation, THANK YOU for your screaming, I love you!

Tonight was really awesome

THANK YOU mate I love MELBOURNE!!!

This song last song

Sing along with me!

Try Again, Smile Again” was the last song to CNBLUE’s heart wrenchingly awesome concert. As the song ended the fans screamed, “I love you,” became a lot more apparent as the screams grew louder rising even above the thrashing of the guitars and drums. We all know good things come to an end, but the promise of their return one day definitely kept everyone happy.

Regardless of the long waiting and the weather, CNBLUE gave Melbourne fans an amazing memory that will last  forever! THANK YOU CNBLUE for coming all the way down to Australia and for giving it your all!

Aussie Boice Surprising CNBLUE by Singing Korean Song

bmsidney86

CNBLUE successfully wrap up 2013 World Tour ‘Blue Moon Concert’ live in Sydney .

Once successfully rocked out on the first day concert in Melbourne (Festival Hall) on May 31st, CNBLUE rushed up to prepare their 2nd day concert in Sydney. Organized by Big Top Concert Sydney, Blue Moon was become the first full-flagged Asian band in Australia with amazingly stuffy (referred to the lighting since the stage is almost the same plain stage compared with usual dance group stage design) stage.

CNBLUE rocked the stage passionately and heat up the venue as soon as concert started and led audiences danced along since the very first song. Leader Jung Yonghwa made the venue even crazier when he played piano for his self-composed song ‘Feeling’.

bmsidney85

Audiences sing along with him. Sydney boices even sing along when they sang ‘Love Light’ passionately. CNBLUE’s members surprise since the audience is able to sing ‘Love Light’ who had Korean Lyric fluently. Right after concert had ended, Sydney fans seem enjoying CNBLUE’s songs who re-played as well as the concert set list for some times.

Meanwhile, after Melbourne and Sydney Australia, CNBLUE will continue 2013 ‘Blue Moon Concert’ in Manila, Philippines on June 15th.

Hello Asia! Live Review: CNBLUE – Big Top Luna Park (01.06.13)

In Sydney 45

It is incredibly rare for a popular Korean group to include Australian stops on their tours, so for CNBLUE to bring their Blue Moon World Tour show to not just one but two Australian cities (Sydney & Melbourne) was a huge deal for Australian Boices (the official name for CNBLUE’s fan club) and for Aussie Kpop lovers in general. I fall into both of those categories so needless to say, I’d been looking forward to this show for a while and happily flew from Brisbane to see this Korean pop rock group live – and I certainly wasn’t the only one who’d travelled for the occasion. Fans from around the country and even abroad began lining up from 6am, and by the time the doors opened the queue extended far beyond the limits of Luna Park, around the corner and out of sight.

Let’s get this straight right away: the four members of CNBLUE – vocalist and rhythm guitarist Jung Yonghwa, lead guitarist Lee Jonghyun, bass player Lee Jungshin and drummer Kang Minhyuk – are not your standard all-singing, all-dancing Korean idol group. Their songs are usually at least partially composed by the members and this was a genuine live show – real instruments, real energy. No miming here. The boys never missed a beat and almost every note was spot on.

When CNBLUE took the stage my first thought was, ‘Wow, so they ARE that pretty in real life.’ Dressed in the standard rock band uniform of t-shirts and skinny jeans, CNBLUE looked like they’d jumped right out of some unsuspecting fangirl’s poster. Yeah, see what I did there, Boices?

They danced, headbanged and, in frontman Yonghwa’s case, shoulder-shimmied their way through a nice mix of new songs from their January release Re:Blue as well as plenty of older tracks, stole many a heart with a mini-set of ballads halfway through the show and then kicked it back into overdrive for the home stretch. “Coffee Shop” was a highlight, with much of the crowd holding their “CNBLUE So Awesome Tonight” banners high (as per instructions stapled to the banners – Kpop fans are nothing if not organised) and their older and heavier song “Just Please”. My personal fangirl heart attack came during the encore with “You’ve Fallen For Me” from Heartstrings, a Korean television drama in which singer Jung Yonghwa and drummer Kang Minhyuk both starred.

Cheesy lyric-laden graphics accompanied some of their English songs on the giant screen backdrop, which I found a little distracting during songs like Wake Up, but the band members made an impressive effort to communicate with their audience in English. There were a few random moments, when Minhyuk declared “We love steak! I like medium!” and Yonghwa repeatedly said “dark, sexy metal”, seemingly apropos of nothing, but their repeated chants of “We love you!”, “Thank you very much!’, “Dance with me!” and “Sydney you are awesome!” were not lost in translation and had the very soggy and bedraggled crowd onside from the word go – even after hours queuing in the rain.

It was definitely a show worth travelling for, and I’ll be back for another round if CNBLUE keep their promise and come back to play for us again. CNBLUE 화이팅!
