Yonghwa’s Interview in Shukan-Josei April 7th Issue

What is the thing that this talented artist asked 300 times?

Jong Yonghwa 25 years old (from CNBLUE)

003IpRYEgy6QSIJTWP25c&690

“I care about member’s favorite when I make the song for CNBLUE. This time I made the song for myself. I felt free, but I also felt considerable pressure.”

Jung Yonghwa who started his solo activity with his first album ‘One Fine Day -Japan Special Edition- ‘. He is one of the members of famous Rock band CNBLUE and is known as an actor. He already debuted as a solo in Korea and has got No.1 in TV music program for 11 weeks.

“I think those were like treats because I carried the hope of many people who cooperated for me. TAKURO-san wrote the awesome lyric for me. I really look forward to Japanese fans reaction for this album.”

The title song ‘One Fine Day (Japanese Ver,)’ turned out the sensitive ballad song that is kind of rare song inCNBLUE.

“Because I would like to make a difference from CNBLUE’s song, I wanted to put a ballad as a title song. I also would like to make this song see the scene.”

This song shows the scene of the day to day from happy to farewell, like talk to a former lover, and the kiss scene in this MV causes a buzz among fans. We told that story to him, he commented about this with a bitter smile.

“ I just feel that I was asked 300 times about it by press person.(Laugh). Surely I acted just as a script. There is nothing my ad-lib. I just completely acted as per director’s instruction!! “

Now he has started his solo concert tour in Japan.
“ I feel good that I think everyone has heard my song. I would be happy if they think that Yonghwa could make a song like that or could sing like this. The music for me is my hobby, work and my all! ”

We asked him that when is your ‘One Fine Day’ for him.
“I have ‘One Fine Day’ every day, but I rarely think that I wanted to go back a day when I was a student. Go to school, meet my friends and go outside to play… I think the common day is just a special day for me.”

We got closer to Yonghwa

Q:What is your first experience recently?
A:I have released my solo album (Laugh). CNBLUE members gave me a good comment for it, “Each song is awesome”. (CNBLUE’s 9th single CD ‘WHITE’ will be released on Apr 9. They will have an concert in Osaka and Yokohama.)

Q:Where do you want to go now?
A:Fujikyu Highland. That is located near the Fuji-san, isn’t that?
I heard that there is scary ghost house that takes about one hour for passing through it. I’m not good at to go ghost house, but I want to go there.

Q:What do you want most now?
A:I have nothing special…, but I can say ‘a plane’ only for me. (You can buy it!) oh, no, no. If I can buy a plane, it would be a toy plane. Oh, I can make apaper plane (Laugh)

Q:We saw you were drinking a lactic drink look happily.
A:I like it. But the emotive feeling what I drank it the first time in Japan has been faded. I think because I am grown up (Laugh). It has been 6 years that I debuted as an actor in the drama ‘You Are Beautiful’. everything has been ever-changing (Laugh)

This was a second FNC KINGDOM for FNC entertainment, it consisted EMERALD STARLIGHT STAGE for daytime show and DIAMOND STARLIGFHT STAGE for the night time show. CNBLUE acted as a headliner for EMERALD STAGE and FTISLAND acted as a headliner for DIAMOND STAGE.

In the daytime show, FTISLAND brought the opening of the stage with ‘Beautiful’ and played ‘DISTANCE’ that got No.1 by fan vote. Hongki said that even Christmas was over, but I hope it would make warm your heart listening this song. But after singing ‘DISTANCE’, he broken the calm atmosphere, and excitation of fans, it was like to show his charisma.

4-pieces mixture rock band, N.Flying that they are planning their full-blown activity in Japan and Korea played three songs includes their new song ‘Knock Knock’. And Juniel who is the first singer songwriter of FNC sang three songs includes ‘I think I’m in love’.

The fourth appearance artist was AOA who debuted in Japan with ‘Mini-Skirt’ on last October. After they performed their debut song ‘Mini-Skirt’ with sexy black costume, they announced about their new song ‘Like a Cat’ that will be released on Feb. 25th. This is a Japanese version of 사뿐사뿐. Their further development is expected.

The collaboration stage was this event’s feature. Jaejin (FTISLAND) and Juniel sang ‘A Whole New World’, and Jimin (AOA) and Seunghyub showed the spicy and sexy stage. Jonghyun (CNBLUE) and Yuna performed ‘Lucky’ of Jason Mraz with mature atmosphere. Hongki (FTISLAND) and Choa (AOA) proceed to show keen stage singing ‘What I wanted to say’ that is the theme song of the bride of the Century and ‘Story’ of AI who is a Japanese singer.

CNBLUE started their daytime show with ‘Ring’ that is the song imaged winter. Yonghwa said “Honma ni Arigatougozaimsu (=Thank you so much/ He said this in Osaka accent) and sang some hot numbers. He sang ‘Foxy’ ‘s intro with Osaka accent, and enjoyed call and response with fans.

In the nighttime show, CNBLUE appeared as a first performer. They played ‘Ring’ first as same as the daytime show and played ‘Ryu Can Do It’ and ‘In My Head’. They said “a concert stage is my place! We are living for it!”, and played ‘Radio’ as a last song.

FTISLAND appeared as a last performer in the night time show. They showed their performance with their hot number like ‘FREEDOM’. Hongki said “We have experienced good things and bad things in this year. But this is all the same for us. So let’s leave only good things until we’ll die. We have to do ROCK to not regret next year too! Make some noise!” The fans became more and more hyper with his comment. They played ‘Flower Rock’ that was not planned in song list, but Minhwan proposed to sing it.

FNC artist showed the collaboration stage in both of daytime show and night time show. These mainly consisted of the band.

‘MochiMochi Band’ that was consisted by Yonghwa, Minhyuk (CNBLUE), Jonghoon, seunghyun (FTISLAND), Jimin, Yuna (AOA) and Kwangjin (N. Flying). They appeared under the concept of the guest performer of FNC KINGDOM, and they called their name to put ‘Mochi’ after each person’s name, it made fans laugh. They started their performance with ‘In My Head’ of CNBLUE, and kept performing a remix song with ‘I hope’, ‘Love,Love,Love’ ,‘Can’t Stop’, ’Love Girl’ and ’Short Hair’.

CNBLUE Interview on Awesome Magazine Vol.14

This is the sequel of an interview with B-PASS Oct issue!

awesome

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We want to interview about new front of Jonghyun’s lyric. This time, ‘Foxy’ that is the song you wrote which has so attractive lyric. This melody is funny, and arranged with various instruments, clapping sound and ‘fu~~’ chanting sound. The lyric is about a man who admire a sexy woman. By seeing only the lyric, I thought that was written by Yonghwa (Laugh).

Jonghyun: Ahhh, it might be.

Yonghwa: wait, wait. They have an image like that for me!?

Jonghyun: like that (Laugh)

This is because the image that Yonghwa is good at an escort for women than Jonghyun… (Laugh) It’s just
an image.

Yonghwa: See? It’s not a meaning that I am a philanderer. Yes, I’m a better hand than him.

Jonghyun: (bitter laugh) I’m  enjoying composed this song. About the lyric, is this funny situation, right? It was different genre from I ever wrote though, I think it is like a challenge for me.

‘Monster’s lyric that you wrote  has also your unique world vision. Recently you have more sense (diversity of musical sense) of composing a song than ever before, are you conciously explore your musical genre?

Jonghyun: I don’t stick a genre especially.

Yonghwa: Jonghyun makes a rap

Jonghyun: Oh, yes. It’s true that I like hiphop. Since each genre have good things, I think it’s interest in gather them. The best thing for us is making good songs, not to stick in one genre.

We want to ask you about a lyric. This ‘foxy’ ‘s lyric is for chasing a sexy women. We wonder how do you feel about that?

Jonghyun: Is that meaning about my love life? I’m not the kind of person to chase a woman. But I like sexy woman. I know the standards of sexy is different depend on the members. I like an imposing woman. I think a woman with great confidence is looks sexy.

Yonghwa: I don’t stick at nothing.

We know the standards of sexy is depends on the person. So what part of woman do you feel attractive?

Jungshin: smize! I think the person who has light in eyes is sexy, is attractive.

Minhyuk: I think eyes too.

Yonghwa: A motion that flip back hers hair!

Jungshin: That is just a gesture that a woman appeals to it for oneself.

What song do you like in this time’s album?

Jungshin: ‘Radio’! I interest the response from people who listened this song. It’s not joking, but I listen this song 7 times a day.
Yonghwa, Jonghyun, Minhyuk: 7 times! (Laugh)

Yonghwa: what is that tricky number as 7, it’s not 5 times nether 10 times (Laugh)

Minhyuk: Because I like all songs through the album, I don’t choose one. It suffices to say that would be ‘Radio’. We don’t have like this song ever, and I’m concerning about the feedback. I viewed in hindsight, I think that song become epoch-making song.

Jonghyun: Although I feel strongly about all songs, I dare I say it, the last song of this album ‘How awesome’. Even if I do say so myself, I wrote this lyric with great care.

This song has didactic lyric.

Jonghyun: Yes it is. This lyric says our feeling. I composed this song as our life like we have concerts everyday….I entitled it ‘How awesome’ because I think it is wonderful to live like that, and in a way, it is the message for fans.

Yonghwa: I’m going to choose ‘Control’. I wrote this song’s lyric with Jungshin and Minhyuk, It was very fun and good experience. We might never do that?! (Laugh)

Jungshin: in the last, we wrote this lyric on a bed, it was great experience for me. I am not sure that how did I could contribute to write a lyric, but I satisfied to join writing a lyric.

Yonghwa: Since that song is like a memorial song, also good song, I am happy if fans like that song.

Jungshin: In fact, we re-wrote lyric for chorus part, so it made that song became better. I enjoyed that process.

Your arena tour will starts from October. What kind of tour do you want to make?

Minhyuk: this tour is the first tour in Japan this year, so I want to do lots of things in this concert. We’re really look forward to the concert. We make this concert that fans will enjoy it!

Jungshin: This is a first tour since we released ‘WAVE’. We’ll show our new songs. And it has been 1 year since we had concert in Japan. Because we will able to meet fans after such a long time, we want to make this concert to enjoy. I hope I would say we had a fun time. Please come to our concert with your friends.

How will your experience that you had tour abroad be useful in the future?

Jonghyun: A concert makes us to develop more. These experiences build us today.

Yonghwa: The more we have a concert, the more I come to think what is a feeling of unity. I run on an idea from this question to next composing song. For example, I try to compose a song that has the stuff to groove, or try to compose a song which we can enjoy while playing the song. This is the good cycle for us. In a word, a concert is one of my part (life). It’s an important part without my body.

Jungshin: The life that going and coming back to overseas and home is a part of our routine now. It’s like a part of my life.

An instrument that you want to play

What is your first instrument?

Yonghwa: I started piano and clarinet when I was 6 years old. (Korean age) And a recorder too. I had learned various of instruments ever since.

Jungshin: I learned piano when I was child but I didn’t remember that. Maybe when I was 8 or 9 years old… Because my mom plays piano well, she taught me it… But I can’t play piano anymore. (Laugh)

Yonghwa: I look back about it, I had learned piano for 10 years…

Jungshin: sure?

Yonghwa: I think it was good for me for composed a song.

Jungshin: Since Yonghwa-hyeong plays piano very well, I envy him. I had learned also violin for 2 years though, of course! I don’t remember how to play it. (Laugh) And then I started playing a guitar when I was at 9th grader. Started playing a bass, it was after entering high school.

Jonghyun: Since I had been judo, playing a piano when I was at 10th grader was the first time to play instrument for me. I had not learned it by someone, I had just taught it myself. One day, after I watched a Eric Clapton’s video that he played a guitar, I wanted to try a guitar. I had also taught a guitar myself first. Since piano and guitar are completely different instrument, I really feel weird. About a piano, I can play chord though, it helps me to compose songs.

Minhyuk: Piano is my first instrument for me too. I started playing it when I was at kindergarden, and then I learned it by taking a class. I didn’t clearly remember, but actually I had been play a piano before entering elementary school. My mom made me to play it but I have enjoyed it 5 or 6 years. Since I wanted playing a flute, I started it instead of piano. I felt regret to quite a piano. Because, despite I had learned it for a long time, I gave it up completely. I started playing a drum when I was at 9th grade. Piano, Flute and Drum are different things as an instrument though, I can read a music and musical note and it helped me to learn drum. When I was child, I hadn’t dreamed of to be a musician. My older sister likes and she listen lots of music, this is one of the reasons that I like music. But I hadn’t thought I keep doing music.

Which instrument do you want to play from now on? Or if you have another life, what instrument do you want to learn?

Jonghyun: I want to play bass. A bass is important for band. This is the bassist that influence ability of a band. For learning a band, I keep learning to play a drum and bass.

Minhyuk: I want to keep learning piano until master it. I keep playing drum as one of my hobby (Laugh) I think the attraction of a band is to be consisted by gathering various instrument. So, if I have my other life, I would master piano.
