CNBLUE interview

Q :CNBLUE’s Japanese best album [PRESENT] is released in 26th. Can you introduce the album?

A :

YONGHWA :This album contain 10 best selected of our own composition songs in Japan until now. ‘Lady’ and ‘One More Time’  are two songs from our most recent album that is also included in this album.

Jungshin : That’s why the album title is “present” or a gift. All of the fans please give a lot of expectation for it. When I am thinking of giving this present before 2013 end, I do feel excited. So please anticipated !

Jonghyun : Particularly, fan is half of the reason in  this Japanese best album which they also have a role in our own composition songs . In this album, you will hear 6th of Yonghwa  hyung songs, and 4 songs that I write my self.

Minhyuk : As well as the fans has been waiting for us in Korea, currently we’ve been in Japan to introduce our music. Please give a lot of attention to it.

Q: IS THERE ANY SPECIAL EPISODE IN THE SONG?

A:

YONGHWA: Well. Even though there is no special episode in the song, I remember well about One More Time video shooting. I was shooting a scene in a rooftop and then the rain falls also the wind blew so much. Eventually, the director keep going the filming in that state, memory from filming in the rain.

JONGHYUN: ‘Blind Love’ . That is a song that released in Japan because I want to try to put a lot of the emotional feeling that Japanese people have.  We are seem similar but there is still a differences. That’s how the lyric is special.

So at first , I wrote the lyrics with the material which is Japanese people like “cherry blossom” but the response is bad. Songs about “cherry blossom” is too common in japan. Because I  asked my Japanese friend, I asked every staff, I saw and the response was the same. So I erased everything about cherry blossom in the lyrics. In korea, I also try to put “cherry blossom” but that word is pretty much pronounced so Ichanged it.

JUNGSHIN : I personally don’t have my own composition song but ‘ROBOT’ is come to my mind. Event though I love the song itself, but the music video filming is really make you remember in particular. Raelly looks like robot (laugh)

MINHYUK : Speaking of the songs in this album, the music video is pretty. So you should make a time to take a look at it.

Q: what kind of song is the title song “lady” about?

A:

Yonghwa : This  title song is our 6th Japanese single. My own composition which is the modern style of1970’s disco sound-like song. In Korea, I think it’s not the style that we could ever shown, which can enjoy gently music. Please give mea lot of love in the year end party (laugh)

Jonghyun : In Japan, we already did our Zepp tour with ‘Lady’ album title,with this song we have a  special exciting live music performance. This is my favorite song!

Jungshin : While doing activity in Korea, the feel is such a new feeling from before. This song is obviously discovered another side of feeling?

Minhyuk : The lyrics are funny. Starightforwardly and simple man smell-like song.

Q: any other song you want to recomended in this album?

A:

Yonghwa : There is a lot of good song, but ‘Greedy Man’ is an accoustic guitar song that has  gently sounds. And this track  is also have a good response. Korean fans please love this song too.

Jonghyun :Um. Can I include “Blind Love”? Take noticed that it was my song project, my self  seem statisfied and the reaction was also good. Is it not it? (laugh)

Jungshin :: ‘Time Is Over’!! It’s awesome even if we listen to it in concert. You should hear it live at concert.

Minhyuk : ‘My Miracle’? Jonghyun hyung compose the music and Yonghwa hyung wrote the lyrics. The melody and the lyrics are flowing perfectly. The lyric is really good. Before, I really want  you to hear this song in Korean so I will happily introduce this song to you.

Q: This is an album without album activity. Where will you comeback?

A:Yonghwa : Right now even though I am busy with drama filming but in my spare time I am continue my work in music, just wait for our next song

Jonghyun :Please wait a little bit more because we will come back with  better songs, and with more wonderful style

Jungshin  :World tour is still not finished yet and Japan arena tour is also still remain and also until end of the year we will held family concert in Japan. So we are currently focusing on remaining our tour concert

Minhyuk : Although there is not activity until our comeback, we want you guys to kept love our music.

Flower boys CNBLUE, who is the lucky person who will get that flowers?

vv_131125_02

What is the flower which fit to Jung Yonghwa? After contemplating for a while about the flower of band’s vocal in charge a lily is finally given to him. Somehow he looks caring and affectionate  and somehow he seems like wanna tell you something. With Jung Yonghwa, the lily doesn’t  shine as always. I wonder why I feel sorry towards the lily(laugh)

vv_131125_03

I am taking the rest time in the middle of drama filming for photo shoot. Jung Yonghwa, the autumn like-guy. With just a simple gray T-shirt with burberry coat in the atmosphere which just Jung Yonghwa who has the ability to control. There will be a time when the rain come with bright sunny  unlike the atmosphere on that day set story.

vv_131125_04

Even the photo shoot was not always using  guitar for guitarist Lee Jonghyun. This time, he was holding the flower instead his guitar till the rest of the photo shoot. White carnations and beige shirt goes well with his white skin.

vv_131125_05

The romantic  Kang Minhyuk with his Ivory cardigan and baby pink flower bouquet. CNBLUE’s youngest line respectable man reborn-like feeling. Photo shoot with a pro attitude, Minhyuk’s received a lot of praised from the staff. Staff are always pleasant with such a good manner.

For Jungshin, he got the cute Welsikogi instead of the spirit of  flower . He took a photo shoot while hugging, and patting the little puppy. But who is Jungshin’s love actually? After the shoot, Jungshin  thanking the puppy for the effort, Jungshin was aproached the puppy quietly  again and again until the puppy barking and shocked everyone. Then he was just simply giving thank for hard work greeting. (tears)vv_131125_07

Made it with imagining we play it in live concerts

-Your 6th single “Lady” was complete. Please tell me a main point when listening to ‘Lady’.
Jungshin: I’m in charge of the bass, so the point is my bass line (laugh). It took from 9 pm to 5 am for recording this song because we thought many things back then. I have played as I think that we will liven up when we play it in this tour since recording. Rhythm makes us high itself and sound is ‘Bang bang! (With high tone).
All: (laugh)
Jungshin: I only imagine that we enjoy concerts with audiences, I become exciting.
Jonghyun: Yonghwa hyung made this song, it’s really good song! I love it!
Jungshin: I love it, too!
Minhyuk: Me too (laugh)

-About “Lady” loved by all, please tell me the episodes of production, the creator, Yonghwa-san?
Yonghwa: I made this song in March or April this year to try to harmonize old style and current style. In reality, I could make it more difficult, but I made it with imagine we play it in live concerts. That’s why this song became simple without complicated sounds I piled up first.
Jungshin: But playing is so difficult.
Yonghwa: Just it’s simple by and large; I dared to use difficult phrases to give importance sounds one by one.
Jungshin: It was hard for me….
Yonghwa: “Lady” was complete early at almost same time as “Don’t care” and “Monday”, but after we finished mixing it, we corrected the latter half of this song or corrected some when bass part recording, and put the correction up. So we took more time for recording.
Jungshin: During my recording, Yonghwa hyung was there all the time. I finished recording at 5 am, Yonghwa hyung had worked until over 6 am. I’m really sorry for him for sleepiness.

-Then, what did Jonghyun-san and Minhyuk-san do?
Minhyuk: I finished my recording then, so though I send him yelling support ‘Keep it up, Jungshin~’ in my mind, I was sleeping at home (laugh)
Jonghyun: Because of his shooting of drama, Jungshin was recording the last. I always do it later than him. I relaxed at home with feeling achieved recording.
Yonghwa: If they had been then, they would have had nothing to do (laugh)
Jonghyun: No doubt we might become in their way (laugh)

-What are contents of lyrics?
Yonghwa: In the lyrics, a man approached a woman earlier. (The lyrics express a man who approached a woman he falls in love at first sight and his feeling that bursts into flame at once.)

-Are these about you?
Yonghwa: (immediately) No (laugh). Our songs hadn’t had such Japanese lyrics. I imagined that the lyrics suit the atmosphere of this song in my mind.

-What is a main point when listening ‘Don’t Care’?
Yonghwa: This song is also simple, but in contrast to strong sound ‘Lady’, it’s impressive acoustic warm sounds.
Jonghyun: This song contained a lot of guitar parts at first, but we were cutting sounds as ‘Lady’, finally, some guitar parts are cut (laugh). But an atmosphere of the song is very good.
Yonghwa: In the lyrics, we are blessed and supported many people and fans, so we happily live. Because, we’ll also live from now on as we appreciate them. And everyone who is listening this song doesn’t live alone. You’re all right because we are close to you. This song directly expresses these feeling.

-We are given strong brave. I’m sure that fans have same thought.
Yonghwa: I hope so.

-Next, please tell us a main point when listening ‘Monday’.
Yonghwa: We aren’t working with periodic schedule, but I suppose that most students and workers feel a gloom like ‘I have to go to school (office) tomorrow~’ at Sunday night, so I wrote them as lyrics.

-Were you so when you’re students?
All: Yes, we were.
Yonghwa: There is a national program ‘Gag concert’ at 9pm~10pm on Sundays. At the ending of this, I was persistently said ‘Go to bed soon because you go to school tomorrow’ by parents.
Jonghyun: It’s the worst (laugh)
Yonghwa: So ending song stirred up our bad feelings (laugh)
All: Tattata~tattatata~ (started to sing)
Jungshin: What’s a name of this song? (All thinking)
Minhyuk: (he searched by iPhone) It’s ‘Part-time Lover’ by Stevie Wonder! (played back at it)
All: Oh yes~!
Yonghwa: Bands play this song live every times, although it’s really good song, our imagine…
Jungshin: Time slot is bad (laugh)

-Indeed. By the way, how did you spend on Sundays back at your schooldays?
Jonghyun: I would go to the church with friends and go home after lunch. ( I’m really curious if he’s really Christian)
Jungshin: I played with friends, anyway.
Yonghwa: Me, too.
Minhyuk: I used to go to the public bath in Sunday morning once in two weeks. After then, I played with friends.
Yonghwa: My family ate ramen as breakfast. Mother wants a rest in Sunday, so we made do with instant noodle different usual (laugh) But I’m glad because I like it.
Jungshin: Ah~ I want to eat ramen.
Minhyuk: I want to eat ramen, too!
Jonghyun: Yeah! Me, too! (Well, CNBLUE’s the most fav topic, FOOD!!!)

-All of you love ramen.
Jonghyun: I look forward to eating ramen when we come to Japan.

-I see. You are active from morning even in Sunday.
Minhyuk: I had slept until 10 am.
Yonghwa: Talking of Sunday, it starts from 10 am,
Jungshin: Oh, it’s ‘Surprise’!
Yonghwa: I go out after I watch the TV program.
Jonghyun: ‘Surprise’ is also popular program all Korean know. If we don’t watch ‘Gag concert’ and ‘Surprise’, we can’t join others’ talk when we go to school Monday.
Yonghwa: And ‘A farm of animals’ , ‘Sunday rounds off’.
All : Oh there were~!

How they spent summer vacation back in their schooldays……

-Now, Japanese students are during summer vacation, how did you spend your summer vacation back in your schooldays?
Minhyuk: I went to my friends’ house and slept over or played.
Yonghwa: Didn’t you go to catch cicadas?
Minhyuk: No, I didn’t. And I sometimes went to school and played soccer there.
Jungshin: Did you get sunburned?
Minhyuk: Yes, but I was in almost friends’ house, so I didn’t become so black.

-How about you, Jonghyun-san?
Jonghyun: I’m a marine man. There is the sea 30 seconds from my house, so I swam with friends every day, went home and eat lunch, and slept… such days.
Jungshin: Did you get sunburned?
Jonghyun: A little. But my skin became only red, turned white soon.
Jungshin: Ah~ I envy you.

-Jungshin-san is interested in sunburn from some time ago (laugh)
Jungshin: My skin becomes black immediately, moreover, doesn’t turn white. So I really envy them (the other member).

-How about you, Yonghwa-san?
Yonghwa: There are many mountains in my home town, Busan. There is a mountain behind my house, so I climbed it with my father. He plays rock-climbing. He climbed even Himalaya.

-That’s full-blown.
Yonghwa: He came back to home a year later.

-Then, how about you, Jungshin-san?

Jungshin: I changed hair color during summer vacation.
Jonghyun: He was a bad boy (laugh).
Jungshin: No, I’m not (laugh). I couldn’t do so when I go to school, so I had my hair dyed gaudy only during summer vacation.
Jonghyun: He was a punk (laugh).
Jungshin: No, I’m not (laugh). It’s expensive to go beauty parlor, my hair can’t be dyed as I expect, so we dyed hair with my friends each other.
Yonghwa: Ah~ I long for those days. We do so by ourselves, brow and ears become dirty (laugh).
Jungshin: But we gradually knew the trick because we did so every years! Dye, dry, dye, dry, we do like it; we can dye hair deep color.
Yonghwa: Also, cheap coloring agents can make more gaudy, such as ‘Yang Kuei Fei’.
Jungshin: Ah~ there was! It’s 300 yen!
Jonghyun: It’s the cheapest!
Jungshin: But I used it when I put my hair back previous color at 2 days ago new term starts.
Jonghyun: He was a punk as I expected (laugh).
Jungshin: No! (laugh)

-Well, please summarize, Yonghwa-san.
Yonghwa: Jungshin is a punk (laugh).
Jungshin: Even Yonghwa hyung…… (Looked at Minhyuk)
Minhyuk: I’m okay with either (laugh).
Yonghwa: Anyway, this summer is hot because we hold tour in Japan and appear ‘SUMMER SONIC 2013’. We want to show ‘Lady’ at live concerts as soon as possible. Let’s liven up together~!

『Zepp Tour』を行っているCNBLUEが、6thシングル「Lady」をリリースした。今回は、メンバーが学生時代を振り返り、休日や夏休みの過ごし方についても語ってくれました。

――6枚目のシングル「Lady」が完成しましたが、「Lady」の聴きどころを教えてもらえますか?

【イ・ジョンシン】 僕は ベースなので、やっぱり聴きどころは、僕のベースラインです(笑)。この曲は、レコーディングのときにいろいろ考えながら録ったので、夜の9時ぐらいから 朝の5時までかかったんです。レコーディングしているときから、今回のライブツアーでやったらすごく盛り上がるだろうなと思って演奏していました。リズム そのものがとても盛り上がるリズムですし、サウンドも(ハイトーンで)“パンパンッ”。
【一同】 (笑)
【ジョンシン】 観客のみなさんと一緒に楽しんでいる姿を想像するだけで、ワクワクしてきます。
【イ・ジョンヒョン】 この曲はヨンファ兄さんが作ってくれたんですけど、本当にいい曲!大好きです!
【ジョンシン】 僕も好き!
【カン・ミンヒョク】 僕も(笑)。

――みんなから愛されている「Lady」について、生みの親であるヨンファさんから制作エピソードを教えてください。

【ジョン・ヨンファ】 こ の曲は、昔っぽいスタイルと今のスタイルを融合させようと思って、今年の3月か4月ぐらいに作ったんです。本当はもっと難解な感じに作ることもできたんで すけど、ライブで演奏することをイメージして作ったので、最初に重ねた音をどんどん省いていって、結果シンプルな構成になりました。
【ジョンシン】 でも、演奏は結構難しいです。
【ヨンファ】 全体的にシンプルだからこそ、1つひとつの音に重みをもたせられたらいいなと思って、あえて今回は難しいフレーズを散りばめました。
【ジョンシン】 大変でした……。
【ヨンファ】 「Lady」は、2曲目の「Don’t Care」「Monday」とほぼ同時期に、曲自体は結構早く出来たんですけど、mixを終えたあとに、後半部分を直したり、ジョンシン君のベースを録っ ているときに直したり、その直したのをまたくっつけたりして、今回は今まで以上に時間をかけてレコーディングしたんです。
【ジョンシン】 僕がレコーディングしているときもずっとヨンファ兄さんがついていてくれたんですけど、僕が朝の5時にベースを録り終わって、そのあともヨンファ兄さんは作業で6時すぎまでかかってしまって、眠い中、本当に申し訳なかったなって。

――そのときジョンヒョンさんとミンヒョクさんは?

【ミンヒョク】 僕は、そのときには自分のパートのレコーディングは録り終えていたので、「ジョンシン頑張って~」ってパワーを送りつつ、家でグッスリ寝ていました(笑)。
【ジョンヒョン】 今回はジョンシンのドラマの撮影の関係で、ジョンシンが一番最後の録りになったんです。いつもならば、僕のほうがジョンシンよりも後にレコーディングするんですけど、今回は先だったので、レコーディングを終えた達成感のなか、僕も家でのんびりくつろいでました。
【ヨンファ】 まあ、2人がいてもやることないしね(笑)。
【ジョンヒョン】 確かに、僕らがいても邪魔になるだけですし(笑)。

――歌詞の内容は?

【ヨンファ】 歌詞は、男性のほうから先に女性にアタックをするという内容になっています。(※ひと目惚れした女性に果敢にアタックする男性の姿、一気に燃え上がっていく熱い心情を描いています)

――ヨンファさん自身、そうなんですか?

【ヨンファ】 (即答で)いいえ(笑)。今までこういう歌詞は日本の曲にはなかったのと、この曲の雰囲気にはこの歌詞が合うかなと思って、頭の中でイメージして描きました。

――2曲目の「Don’t Care」の聴きどころは?

【ヨンファ】 この曲もシンプルな仕上がりになっているんですけど、強いバンドサウンドの「Lady」とは対照的に、アコースティックの温かなサウンドが印象的です。
【ジョンヒョン】 最初はギターが結構入っていたんですけど、「Lady」と一緒でどんどん音数を減らしていったら、最終的にギターもたくさんカットされました(笑)。でも、曲全体の雰囲気がとてもいいので、いい感じになったと思います。
【ヨンファ】 また歌詞では、僕らは本当恵まれていて、 たくさんの人、友だちやファンに支えられて幸せに生きている。だからこそ、支えてくれる人たちに感謝しながら、これからも生きていきたい。そして、僕達だ けでなく、聴いてくれるみなさんも決してひとりで生きているのではなく、僕たちがいるから大丈夫だよという想いを遠回しではなく、直接的に描いています。

――力強い勇気をもらえますね。きっとファンの人も同じ気持ちでしょうし。

【ヨンファ】 そうだとうれしいです。

――続いて「Monday」の聴きどころもお願いします。

【ヨンファ】 僕たちは定期的なスケジュールで動く人間じゃないんですけど、普通の学生さんとか会社員のみなさんは、やはり日曜日の夜というのは、「あ~明日からまた学校だ~」「会社だ~」と、ちょっと憂鬱な気持ちになるんじゃないかと思い、その心情を歌詞に書きました。

――みなさんも日曜日の夜はそうでした?

【一同】 はい。
【ヨンファ】 韓国で10年ぐらい続いている『ギャグコンサート』という日曜日の夜9時~10時にやっている国民的長寿番組があるんですけど、そのエンディングテーマが流れると、両親から「明日学校なんだから、早く準備して寝なさい」って毎回うるさく言われるんです。
【ジョンヒョン】 もう、最悪です(笑)。
【ヨンファ】 だから、エンディングテーマは、嫌な気分を煽る曲なんです(笑)。
【一同】 タッタタータッタタター(歌い出す)。
【ジョンシン】 なんて曲名だったっけ?(一同考える)
【ミンヒョク】 (iPhoneで調べて)スティービー・ワンダーの「パートタイムラバー」だ!(音を流す)
【一同】 あっそうそう~。
【ヨンファ】 毎回生バンドでその曲を演奏するんですけど、すごくいい曲なのにイメージが……。
【ジョンシン】 やる時間帯が悪いです(笑)。

――確かに。ちなみにみなさんが学生時代、日曜日はどんな過ごし方をしてましたか?

【ジョンヒョン】 僕は友達と教会に行って、そのあとご飯を食べて帰ってました。
【ジョンシン】 僕はとにかく友達と遊んでました。
【ヨンファ】 僕も。
【ミンヒョク】 僕はお父さんと2週間に1回、日曜日の朝、銭湯に行って、そのあと友達と遊ぶのが習慣でした。
【ヨンファ】 僕の家は、朝食がラーメンでした。お母さんも日曜日はお休みしたいから、ご飯もいつもと違って、即席ラーメンで済まされました(笑)。でも、僕は好きだから、うれしかったです。
【ジョンシン】 あ~ラーメン食べたいな~。
【ミンヒョク】 ラーメン食べたい!
【ジョンヒョン】 ほんと!ラーメン食べたい!

――みんなラーメン大好きですね。

【ジョンヒョン】 毎回日本に来たら、ラーメンを食べるのが楽しみです。

――そうなんですね。でも、みなさん日曜日でも朝からアクティブに活動してるんですね。

【ミンヒョク】 僕はお昼、10時ぐらいまで寝てました。
【ヨンファ】 日曜日といえば、朝10時から始まる、
【ジョンシン】 あっ『サプライズ』だ!
【ヨンファ】 その番組を見てから出かけるんです。
【ジョンヒョン】 『サプライズ』も韓国の人がみんな知っている人気番組で。『ギャグコンサート』と『サプライズ』を見ていないと、月曜日に学校に行ったとき、みんなの話題についていけないんです。
【ヨンファ】 あと、『動物農場』とか、『日曜日は四捨五入』とか。
【一同】 あっ、あったね~!

メンバーそれぞれの学生時代の夏休みの過ごし方は……

――現在、日本の学生の人たちは夏休みまっただ中ですが、みなさんの学生時代の夏休みの過ごし方はどんな感じでしたか?

【ミンヒョク】 僕は友達の家に行って寝たり、遊んだり、
【ヨンファ】 せみ取りにはいかなかったの?
【ミンヒョク】 いかなかったです。あと、たまに学校に行ってサッカーをしていました。
【ジョンシン】 日焼けはしたの?
【ミンヒョク】 したけど、ほとんど友達の家にいたから、そんなに真っ黒にはならなかったと思う。

――ジョンヒョンさんの夏の過ごし方は?

【ジョンヒョン】 僕は、海の男でした。家から30秒ぐらいいったら海だったので、毎日友だちと海で泳いで、家に帰ってご飯食べて、疲れたら寝て……の毎日でした。
【ジョンシン】 日焼けはしたの?
【ジョンヒョン】 ちょっとだけ。でも、赤くなるだけで、すぐ白く戻ってましたね。
【ジョンシン】 あ~うらやましいな~。

――ジョンシンさんは、さきほどから日焼けに興味深々なようで(笑)。

【ジョンシン】 僕はすぐ黒くなってしまううえに、白く戻らないから、本当にうらやましいです。

――ヨンファさんの夏休みの過ごし方は?

【ヨンファ】 僕の地元の釜山には山がたくさんあって、実家の後ろにも山があったので、お父さんと一緒に山登りをしていました。お父さんは、ロッククライミングをしていて、ヒマラヤまで行ったほどなんです。

――それは本格的ですね。

【ヨンファ】 そして、お父さんがヒマラヤに行って帰ってきたのは、1年後でした。

――では、ジョンシンさんの夏休みの過ごし方は?

【ジョンシン】 夏休みになると、ヘアーカラーをチェンジしてました。
【ジョンヒョン】 不良です(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 違います(笑)。学校に行っているときはできないので、夏休みの間だけ派手な色に染めていました。
【ジョンヒョン】 ヤンキーです(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 違います(笑)。美容院に行くと高いし、自分の思った色に染まらなかったりするので、友だち同士でヘアカラーの薬を買ってきて、お互いに染めあっていました。
【ヨンファ】 あ~懐かしい~。自分たちでやると、耳やおでこについちゃったりするんだよね(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 でも、毎年やってるから、どんどんコツをつかんでくるんです。1回染めて、乾かして、また染めて、乾かしてっていう風にやっていくと、いい感じで濃い色が出るんです。
【ヨンファ】 しかも、安いカラー剤のほうが派手な色が出たりするんだよね。「楊貴妃」とか。
【ジョンシン】 あ~あったね。300円!
【ジョンヒョン】 一番安いです!
【ジョンシン】 でも、「楊貴妃」は、僕は染めるときじゃなく、学校がはじまる2日前に、髪色を戻すときに使ってましたね。
【ジョンヒョン】 やっぱりヤンキーです(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 違います(笑)。

――では、ヨンファさん、まとめてください。

【ヨンファ】 ジョンシンは、ヤンキーです(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 ヨンファ兄さんまで……(ミンヒョクを見る)
【ミンヒョク】 僕はどっちでもいいと思います(笑)。
【ヨンファ】 とにかく今年の夏は、日本でのツアーや『SUMMER SONIC 2013』への出演とライブ三昧の熱い夏です。「Lady」をライブで披露したくてウズウズしているので、みなさん一緒に盛り上がりましょう~!

CNBLUE Zepp Tour ~Lady~ Live Report / Excite Music (Translation)

“In the past, there were only ‘Lady’ in our live (Laugh)” (Yonghwa)

An exploding male fan. They showed their improvement and evolution.

The last performance of the 2 days in Tokyo for [CNBLUE Zepp Tour 2013 ~Lady~] was held on Aug 7th (Wed).

The stage light turned from blue to red, CNBLUE appeared. “Are you ready?” When Yonghwa said so, they just started to play ‘Where you are’. Even while we were used to hear this song, we felt they improved. The groove that was made from intertwined sound and sound put the listeners on excitement. CNBLUE kept singing and played ‘In My Head’ and ‘Time Is Over’ aggressively. There was an atmosphere of excitement in the venue. Jungshin made a demagogic gesture again and again. During the talking time, Yonghwa said “We want to get your passion till the end”. He seemed to already think about ‘Summer Sonic 2013’ and the performance in Zepp Osaka. Minhyuk said he got a haircut, but it was like a different person with him when he is focused to play the drum.

“Don’t Care’ and ‘Greedy Man’ are the simple songs that made use of the tone of the acoustic guitar. These songs have a cool and nostalgic air, and made a different atmosphere then the beginning of the live. When they played ‘Try Again, Smile Again’ and Yonghwa and Jonghyun sang it, the atmosphere in the venue turned into happiness. The scene that they sang with fans seemed that they had a conversation, and it experienced wholeness and harmony. It was a happy surprise that Yonghwa sang impromptu with his acoustic guitar. Yonghwa let Jungshin sing “this is the last day of Tokyo, so sad~~”. Yonghwa followed it and sang “Thank you everybody~” “We will be here again”. Jonghyun lapped over with his electric guitar and the other members sang together “I am a genius!” “Your song is great” “My voice is best” etc. At the end of impromptu, Yonghwa said “CNBLUE is the best! We are top of the world!’ They acted casually on this impromptu, but this was not possible without their harmony and each ability.

After they played a sweet love song “Love Light” in Korean, the atmosphere in the venue changed to the mature and serious mood when Jonghyun sang ‘eclipse’ and Yonghwa sang ‘Y. Why’. On the other hand, they made another scene with pink and white lights on “Blind Love”. That was different from any scene . ‘Robot’ that Yonghwa’s shouted was impressive. ‘Coffee Shop’ that built a feeling of unity with call and response. Their set list was well-modulated and it made the most of what one has for each song. The last song was ‘Lady’ that is the title song of this tour. It has a disco sound and shows it is CNBLUE. Yonghwa’s natural steps raised our spirits, this song is verified that it’s good for a live. At the last of the live, the other members gathered around Minhyuk and they faced to each other and played each instrument.

During the encore, they appeared on stage with live T-shirts. Yonghwa said “Since you are getting hyper in the live, we became more and more hyper! We make the live together, not only CNBLUE. Since our distance is so close, we can get hyper early.” ”We had only 7 people in our first live”. He looked over the packed venue  and was impressed by it and said “My hearts is too full for words”.  Even after he said to the fans ‘Ladies and Gentlemen…”, he laughed and said “ In the past, there were only ‘Lady’ in our live”. It was very moving that they looked happy when the fan boy (man) give them a loud cheer. There was the sound of a huge roar when CNBLUE played “Teardrops In The Rain” with their beautiful harmony. The last song of the encore was “Starlit Light”. Jonghyun who has composed this song explained the episode for it. “When I saw a shooting star in Niigata, I felt it was good”. He also said “This is a feeling that was given by you, the fans. So let’s sing together” The fans clapped their hands and sang together beneath the mirror ball.

Because they have a wide variety of music, the show became furious, although the color of rock that is underlying does not wobble. And on the stage we can see each member’s confident attitude. After this performance, the first time they will appear is on Summer Sonic 2013. Did they feel anything while watching a new world? If the promise that Yonghwa made, “We will be back here again”, will come true, we look forward to watching them who would accomplish future growth.

Interview with CNBLUE

Disco tune in CNBLUE style, keyword is ‘lady’ & ‘baby’

Their new song “Lady” is a disco tune that has nostalgic vibe as if CNBLUE made to revival. This song expresses a rise of heartbeat at the moment love starts and a relation of “you and I” that is deeper by dealing with meaningful words. The attraction of this song is like adult and different from their previous singles. An impact of refrain that the word “lady” sticks in sharp is strong. Even if we only listen to the song once, it makes us imagine an exciting party. They are visiting not only Asia but also Europe, North and South America, Australia as world tour (for sure I’m still waiting for FNC releases the rest of their world tour schedule for Europe and North n South America, though I’m not sure I can attend it either >< ) and holding Zepp tour in 5 cities in Japan side by side, moreover they will appear SUMMER SONIC 2013 and ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2013, They are energetically active as a band. CNBLUE advances next stage with new killer tune this summer.

Excite: “Lady” recalls ’70s dance music, what imagination did you start to make the song with, Yonghwa-san?
Yonghwa: Maybe I composed ‘Lady’ last March or April. I wanted to write a song which fits with our imagination such an old (mature) (maybe Yonghwa means that he’s trying to make a step for CNBLUE’s image and shown their maturity) atmosphere. I feel there is a lot of music that recurring from the old days to these days, so I thought we’ll try such music.
Minhyuk: At first, we had 2 types of rhythm about this song. Now disco rhythm only has one key, we considered a lot which rhythm we use.
Yonghwa: Another sound is a bit more rock style.
Minhyuk: It’s also good, but for playing is very difficult. The recent rhythm is simplier.
Jungshin: Nevertheless, I feel this song is difficult among our (previous) songs. When recording bass, I kept in mind I communicate much (discussing the tune with other members), but it took more time than I had expected. This song is challenge for me. When I finished recording, I felt satisfied ‘I did well!’
Yonghwa: We had been recording until 5 am!
Jungshin: Yes, rhythm was very difficult.
Jonghyun: I have felt ‘good song’ since I’ve listened to it for the first time. Different from previous songs, this song is fashionable and trendy, rhythm of guitar sounds interesting. Lyrics are different from ours usual and fit the melodies.

Excite: When you wrote the lyrics, what were you conscious of?
Yonghwa: The melody is sexy, so I wrote lyrics like you see right now.
Jonghyun: Lyrics is so interesting, we just sing as it is.
Yonghwa: Many previous songs have a theme like “dream”. But I changed this time.

Excite: Do you mean you wanted to challenge different things?
Yonghwa: This song is a result that we tried to make music that we recently had wanted to do rather than challenge.

Excite: I see. “Lady” at the part of the chorus is that he longs for, and changes “baby” at the other part which he approaches her. It’s vivid and impressive that the beginning of love is drawn by only contrast of 2 words.
Yonghwa: As you’ve said just now, “lady” and “baby” are in refrain. When I wrote the lyrics, I thought that even if everyone doesn’t listen to other parts well, it’s interesting enough to listen to only “lady” and “baby”. It’s just like the theme of this song.

Excite: Is it important for you to choose words which everyone can intuitively feel the attraction without long explanations when you write the lyrics?
Yonghwa: Yes, it is.
Minhyuk: When I listened to the melody of this song, I felt very interesting “What kind of lyrics will he write?”. So he made interesting lyrics and different from previous songs, I thought the lyrics are just suit with melody. The songs written by Yonghwa-san always have pleasure like “What is interesting point of his next song? What will be a theme?”

Excite: Well, what is the attraction or pleasure for you when you play this song as a band?
Jonghyun: This song has good melody, but I think the point of this song is cutting rhythm of guitar. I’m fun and enjoyable playing this song.

Excite: The 2nd song “Don’t Care” also has comfortable rhythm of guitar. How was this song born?
Yonghwa: This song gives warm feeling. It was born when I played acoustic guitar, I easily came up with it. The result is almost same as a demo.
Jungshin: This song is very simple, so I thought it’s better not to change the first atmosphere of this song. So I felt relieved because the first atmosphere remained when I listened to it after recording.

Excite: The lyrics are like telling oneself “Believe in myself”. I felt that Yonghwa-san’s feelings are obediently expressed from the phrase.  May I take such mean?
Yonghwa: Yes you can. The lyrics completed as soon the same as the melody.

Excite: The keywords of “Lady” are ‘lady’ and ‘baby’, in case of this song; I’m interested in what ‘I’ and ‘you’ point at. I felt they don’t simply express the relation of ‘I’ and ‘you’…?
Yonghwa: umm… human doesn’t live alone, so let’s live as we appreciate around us, I suppose there is such mean.
Jonghyun: Yonghwa played the acoustic guitar in this song, but except it, we did recording with the electric guitar, too. He played with distortion, but it doesn’t suit the song. It wasn’t used after all.

Excite: That’s a little bad.
Jonghyun: I think so~ (laugh) But just, we had thought it doesn’t suit, so we discussed with staffs. But we decided to do ‘No one knows the result, let’s try once’, so did recording… that time was wasteful (laugh)

Excite: But it means that you always think the way to make songs better and you are trying several ways.
Jonghyun: Yes. We prefer this song like acoustic as expected, so it finally became so.
Minhyuk: I think it’s good that important parts of this song. Everyone may memorize only they listen to the part. We finished good recording soon because the singing was good. The entire sounds were also good.
Yonghwa: Especially drum sound was good!

Excite: The 3rd song ‘Monday’ is lively and contains reggae element. The lyrics are about depression in the Monday morning, but it seems not serious disgust. I like such humor.
Yonghwa: About the back of the lyrics… It’s not our case now, for example, office workers feel depressed in the Sunday night because Monday is the beginning of a week. In Korea, there is a TV program ‘Gags concert (KBS)’ broadcasted every Sunday night. When we were students, we heard ending song of it and we once felt ‘Oh I’ll go to school from tomorrow!’
Jungshin: Ah I would feel so~.
Yonghwa: That’s why; I remembered my feelings in those days and wrote the lyrics.

Excite: I felt this song makes our gloomy feelings happy and cheers us. Did you aim at such effects?
Yonghwa: Yes I did, I suppose. I wrote the word ‘Time machine’, it includes my wish ‘If only I could freely come and go among time’.

Excite: You’ll appear ‘SUMMER SONIC 2013’ and ‘ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2013’ this summer. Could you tell us your enthusiasms?
Minhyuk: I have a lot of pressure. Many bands appear on those festivals, so there are characteristic drummers. I have pressure like what should I do in them? But I’ll try with easy mind like ‘We’ll show our music!’
Yonghwa: I’m looking forward to it. I’m sure that it becomes enjoyable experience because we have held many lives until now, so we can surely do it well.
Jonghyun: I’m happy we can appear it. I’ll enjoy it with all my might as usual! Only that.
Jungshin: My feeling is also like going to enjoying myself. We’ll appear and watch Summer Sonic 2013 for the first time, so I’m looking forward to it and I’m glad. And Rock In Japan Festival 2013 is outdoor live, isn’t it? We have held concert outdoors in Niigata, Outdoor live has its own attraction as expected. I’m happy that we can be on the stage together. I hope many people listen to our music and come to our concerts.

[NECESSARY ITEM]

Yonghwa (Guitar & Vocal) Sunglasses

Whenever and wherever I go, I bring sunglasses. When I look tired or pale, I feel it’s better to wear it. I bought one I have now at Apgujeong in Korea. The points when I choose it are color is black and it can cover my face well. I’m given it as a present, so I have about 20. I use it that fits clothes.

Jonghyun (Guitar & Vocal) Mobile phone

I use mobile phone for everything. I surf the internet, basically listen to music with it, I can do nothing without mobile phone. Even if new type is on sale, I don’t change new one soon, in the case of fashion, too. I’m not interested in such things so much (laugh) I changed because I’m given it this time. Previous one is bigger than present one, this is just size and very useful. Connection to the internet is rapider than a laptop, I can take a picture with it. I use it when recording songs.

Minhyuk (Drums) Mobile phone

I recently began to use this mobile phone. I’m given it by the company that is a sponsor of CNBLUE’s world tour. Mobile phone is really important. Because there is a chatting room for us and we always talk several things. I listen to music and surf the internet with it. It contains sound sources we haven’t released yet. I often play a game with members. We are deep into a game “Everyone’s marble”, which we use 2 dices and buy a plot. In the case that I buy a plot, the truth is that I have to pay money by myself, but when I win, others have to pay it. Finally, a person who have most money and plots wins.

Jungshin (Bass) Mobile phone

When I have free time, I look at several things at the internet. I often listen to music. It contains music sources we haven’t released yet, so I listen to it to prepare a recording. It’s really serious if I lost it! I recently save a script of drama and read with mobile phone. It’s handy because I can expand to read. It’s hard to carry a script… This phone is just size and has useful functions, so I like it. The game I’m deep into is “Everyone’s marble”, but I read a script more than playing game these days. I’m busy because of shooting of drama, tour, etc… They’re interesting for me!

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 on PATi-PATi PRIME 2013 Volume 01

PATi-PATi PRIME vol 1.9

‘Groovy CNBLUE’ Feature summer single

CNBLUE will release a single just like the summer, ‘Lady’ on July 31st. About this ‘Groovy CNBLUE’ song that has disco atmosphere, we threw ‘Lady’ questions associated from the lyrics at them.

As a part of world tour, CNBLUE hold Zepp tour in Japan this summer. Moreover they will appearat summer festivals. They release a groovy dance tune ‘Lady’ as if we begin to dance in the summer live. A party at night, A lady is made a target, she is already mine… We set the song that is the sexiest in CNBLUE songs as a theme, probed into their private.

PATi-PATi PRIME vol 1.8

‘Lady’ is the word that fits the song the best.

– New song ‘Lady’, did you make this song with awareness that this is released in Japan?
Yonghwa Not especially. I’m not particular about where the song will be released. I release completed songs at release season.

– Were you aware of the single released in summer?
Yonghwa: Yes I was. In fact when I was writing a song like ballad, but it doesn’t suit summer, so I omitted it this time.

– What is a theme of ‘Lady’?
Yonghwa: When we go to summer festival, everyone dances and livens up the atmosphere, like club. I wrote with such a portrait. We will play at summer festivals this year, this song is like disco and we can feel coolness, so it’s just like a summer.

-What is the root of this title?
Yonghwa: ‘Lady’ is the word that fits the song the best.

– How do you feel after you play it?
Minhyuk: This song is fun. While playing we’re liven up because rhythm of this song is disco..
Jonghyun: In fact I didn’t make songs for a while after I made ‘Blind Love’ though I already start to make again. I felt something is lacking, so I was studying music. In the mean time, I left songs making to Yonghwa. Then he completed very good songs. When I listen to ‘Lady’ for the first time, I felt it’s groovy song. It has sexy atmosphere, too. It is like summer, isn’t it?
Yonghwa: Because this song is cool and fresh.
Jonghyun: I felt the disco song like it also suits summer. Rhythm is good, isn’t it?
Jungshin: Mwo?
3 members *except JS*: hahahahaha! ‘Mwo?’

– What, what is it?
Jungshin: I say ‘Mwo’ from a habit before I start to talk. I’m being made fun of it by members (wry smile)
Jonghyun: ‘Mwo’ is Korean, ‘Nani?’ in Japanese.
*’What?’
in English*

– I see (laugh) How do you feel after you play ‘Lady’, Jungshin?
Jungshin: Just like other members had said, I felt it’s just like summer. There were originally two versions about rhythm in this song. The other one is a little difficult.
Yonghwa: We felt guy while listening its one, but the playing is complicated.
Jungshin: And another one is now disco rhythm. This song became groovy because rhythm was decided this version. That’s why I’m looking forward to playing it at live.

Perspiring on the nose is the sign of ‘I love you’ (laugh)

– Well, I’ll ask you from lyrics of ‘Lady’. At first, what kind of ‘Lady’ that appears in front of you,  and you feel ‘I want you’?
Yonghwa: If she is so cute, I might think too much and feel much pressure (laugh) the best person is who agrees with each other. I guess Minhyuk’s thought is so, isn’t it?
Minhyuk: Yes. Most important thing is her personality. First when we’re directly meet, whether we can understand or not, it’s important. And I like a person who has pure eyes.
Jonghyun: Mine is feeling *his important point*
Yonghwa: It’s just a feeling~~ (suddenly started to sing ‘feeling’)
Jonghyun: If our feelings coincide, I can understand her without doing nothing.
Jungshin: I…… I like a person who is whiter than me.
Yonghwa: Such people are many! (laugh)
Jungshin: And a person who agrees with each other, and…
Jonghyun: Despite his appearance, he has lofty ideal. He is most particular of all.
Jungshin: Because I’ve not kept company with so many women, I become so too much.

– Then, if you meet a ‘Lady’ whom you felt ‘I want you’, how do you approach her?
Minhyuk: I catch her soon.
3 members: whew~~ (laugh) how manly!
Minhyuk: Oh why? I catch her as my girlfriend.
Yonghwa: I don’t understand him well. If I feel positive, I approach her, but if I don’t feel so, I don’t by the situation or atmosphere at that time.
Jonghyun: Feeling is important for me, so if I like her, she should like me. Special approach doesn’t need. It’s rare only one side like her, isn’t it?
Yonghwa: Really? I don’t think so~ (laugh)
Jungshin: I can’t approach someone at all.
Yonghwa: In case of Jungshin, his perspiring on the nose is the sign of ‘I love you’ (laugh) (All were staring at Jungshin) Look~, hahahaha, he is just sweating on his nose.
Jungshin: No I’m not! (laugh)
Minhyuk: Jungshin sweats on his nose only when he sees a picture of hot food.
Yonghwa: Human tells his mind with words, Jungshin can tell his mind with his nose without speaking! (All burst out laughing)
Jungshin: So, when I meet you, I’ll say ‘Annyunghaseyo~’ (covering his nose with his hand) from now on. (All laughing hard)
Yonghwa: Shall I buy any deodorant for nose? (laugh)
Jungshin: (laugh) By the way, my answer to the question is ‘I can’t’. I couldn’t talk with women well before. I can do it now as might be expected. But I guess I can’t do anything if there is a woman on my heart in front of me.
– So, who is the activist to woman all of you?
Jonghyun: I think such person is no one among us.

-Well, who changes a sexy man in the night, not on the stage?
Yonghwa: Firstly, a man doesn’t feel other man sexy, I don’t know it well.
Jungshin: We’re not sexy, only noisy men in the night.

– Who is the sexiest on the stage?
Yonghwa: (immediately) No doubt, it’s me!
Minhyuk: Yes, he is. His action one by one,
Jonghyun: Sexy.
Yonghwa: Ah~ Sexy moving like that naturally appearance, hahaha (laugh) I usually hide all the points.
Jonghyun: hehehe (laugh) I see. I think everyone who works hard is sexy. But Jungshin is all in sweat when he plays bass hard, so this point is uncool (laugh)
Jungshin: What!?
Jonghyun: But okay. Jungshin hascute (smile)

-‘Lady’ is groovy music, do you sometimes go to a club and spend the ‘party’ night?
All: No, we don’t.
Jungshin: Not club, we dance in a house or car, don’t we?
Yonghwa: A car leaps because of it (laugh)
Minhyuk: We’re listen to music which makes us dance and we move.

-When you play ‘Lady’ at summer festivals or tours, members and audiences will become like a party.
Yonghwa: Let’s dance hard!
