[TRANS] CNBLUE Members BEST 3 from rankingbox Japan

Jung Yonghwa BEST 3 Memories of Japan Major Debut 5th Year Anniversary

ks2

 

1st – Guerilla live in front of Shinjuku Station, Tokyo

cn-blue-in-my-head

CNBLUE went to Japan for a spartan training in 2009. While we had a poor-living together, we were active on the street and small live houses. On the first-time we sang in front of Shinjuku Station, of course, there are no audiences at all. But two years later after did guerilla live in front of Shinjuku Station we made our major debut with “In My Head”, and 7000 people came. At the same time in Shinjuku, the audiences were growing from zero to 7000 people. It’s amazing to remember about that now! It’s touching!

2nd – First time in Yokohama Arena

c-n-blue-392

“392” live is the end of our indie era. On that day, we were announcing our major debut through a press conference and told fans (about major debut) through the live (concert). For the first-time arena tour, it’s a turning-around center stage. At that time, I couldn’t remember what kind of performance I’m playing, but I still remember that my body was shivering because of a shining lighting and it was filled with a lot of fans. I was nervous, I’ve worked too hard, with a limited physical and mental strength, I fell down right after the live ends (LOL).

 

3rd – “In My Head”

imh

On October 19th 2011, CNBLUE made a Japan major debut with “In My Head”. It was sung live for the first time on “392” live at Yokohama Arena, when we announced the major debut. Since then I played (the song) live for many times, the feeling to sing it on each year changed, there is something different even if I listen to my singing (to that song) later on. That’s interesting. Also, when this song goes live, the tension will surely rise, it will become very hot! It’s surprisingly become hot while singing!


Lee Jonghyun BEST 3 Things to Seek on a Lover

ks4

1st – Personality

ljh

I think I’m that “nice” and friendly/kind person. But after all, the most important thing is about personality, right? I think that this is the most important thing for men and women to see for a partner. I’m that type who will aggressively appeal the person I like in a gentle way. I’ll try to find out what things that she likes, and will do a such effort(s) to fit with her and things that she likes. But I’m not that gentle to the person I’m not interested. It’s not that good in being good/kind to everyone. It will be quite rude/impolite even if you make your partner/opponent misunderstood (because of the good treats).

2nd – Thoughts

ljh22

I’m a person who can understand my own way of thinking, and, also the one who will respect other thoughts. My way of thinking is very simple. The policy is “to live happily right now”. Taking care of her is important, even work and hobbies are also important, but I’d like to do those happily. Basically, it’s the man who will try his best and devote himself for the woman, but I also have my own world, so I want her to understand on my way of thinking/thoughts. I also respect her as much as I can. I think it’s wonderful to have a relationship that can understand and respect each other.

3rd – A Family person

ljh33

It may be an old thought, but isn’t marriage is the end of a love affair? After all, I hope for the one who will become my wife is a family person. A person who protect her families just like my mother is ideal. Actually, I look at cooking as a hobby, I can make quite anything fairly. Even if I have to say it to myself, that my skill is pretty good (LOL). Since my hobby is fishing, I’m good in making a fish’s fillet. Last time, I caught fish and make its sashimi then put it in Jungshin’s house. I’m unexpectedly that homely guy as well.


Kang Minhyuk BEST 3 Favorite Japanese Food

ks3

1st – Sushi

kmh1

When I come to Japan, Sushi is the No. 1 thing that I definitely want to eat. I love every kind of Sushi! There’s nothing that I don’t like. Hikarimono and Sea urchin are OK. Since this promotion was only for one night, I don’t have the chance to eat Sushi, so I ate ramen for dinner with Jungshin. But then, I heard that Yonghwa and Jonghyun had eaten Sushi, right now, I’m a bit shock… I’ll definitely take a revenge during the tour, I really want to eat good Sushi!

2nd – Omurice (Omelet Rice)

kmh2

Japanese omelet rice with eggs are fluffy and delicious, right~? There are places that have this in Korean franchise/convenience store, but it’s totally different. That fluffy things are impressive. It has a deep taste/feel of the rice (LOL). I also choose an omelet on the menu of our 5th anniversary cafe (15th – 23rd October at cafe manduka Shibuya). In Japan, it is a dish that boy wants the girl to make, right? I will eat everything she made deliciously!

3rd – Bamboo Steamer Dish

kmh3

Right now, Bamboo Steamer Dish is a bit trending in South Korea. When I want to eat it, sometimes I went to the one (place which sell it) in South Korea. But, we can do/make it at home, aren’t we? Next time, I’d like to buy the “Bamboo Steamer” and make it at home. I like various ingredients on it like vegetables, but after all there has to be meat! But I prefer beef than pork! When steaming the meat with vegetables, it has a slight taste of veggies, but it all healthy and refreshing. It only steaming a simple dish, but this is a “simple is best” dish.


Lee Jungshin BEST 3 Favorite Fashion Items

ks5

1st Hoodie

ljs1

My recent favorite is parka hoodie. I love “VETEMENTS” brand. It has a coordinated stylish oversized street style. I usually like both casual and traditional style, I wear both, but parka hoodie is fun and easy, so, I like it. About my favorite fashion, I think you can understand it by checking through my Instagram. All the pictures are Simba? Ah, I’m sorry (LOL).

2nd Damaged Jeans (Ripped Jeans)

ljs2

Do you say it as Damaged Jeans in Japan? In South Korea, it called Destroyed Jeans. It (the name) seems strong in South Korea (LOL). I only wear Damaged Jeans recently. The damage itself is cool and I like the bigger one. A light denim color is better, I think the heavy/thick color one match for upcoming season. Damaged Jeans with Parka Hoodie, I guess if it all comes with short boots will be like a style for autumn.

3rd Accessories

ljs3

I think that the fashion point is a watch and a bracelet. I don’t wear rings and earrings recently. Watch is on left hand, and bracelet is on right hand. It’s a NO for digital watch. I like a classical metal belt, but now I love gold watches. I wear not only one bracelet, there are gold and silver one, both are thick and thin, a coordinated square and a chain, I like to put it well-balanced.

[TRANS] Lee Jungshin on “Cinderella and The Four Knights” Casts’ Interview by Kstyle Japan

img-c6af5d5de41b5f94899a6d3e6e319a9a

— From December 22nd, “Cinderella and The Four Knights” will be broadcasted. Please show us your impression towards this drama to be broadcasted in Japan

Jungshin : Since I want to have communication with fans, so I’m more into SNS. Japanese fans even watched the drama while it’s being broadcasted in South Korea, they even cheered us a lot. But after all I’m happy that it will be broadcasted in Japan. I think it’s a good opportunity to see myself as an actor, other than a singer. “Cinderella and The Four Knights” is a drama that may give you a light heart attack. Many people wrote on my SNS “it’s a drama that has such affection yet I can’t stop watching it”. I think it’s an attractive drama that will become addictive once you watch it!

— What made you want to appear in this drama?

Jungshin : Since the characters’ theme of this drama is about young age, I felt that its interesting. I’m not like other actors who have appeared in so many works but I’ve appeared on five drama so far. Even though this work can be done easily by an older people, but still, it’s also a “youth-romance-things” drama which targets young people. I’m 26 years old now, I thought about “When there’s a chance to appear in a drama before I’m getting older, what would it be?”, so I thought about a bright drama! That was the thought and the reason on why I want to do this work.

— What kind of characters did you play?

Jungshin : From what I saw it’s simply a bright character with positive energy. There was a time when I was worried about “how can I make it on my own (way)?” for this character, but the answer is unexpected. It was said that there are many parts that’s similar with my own figure (in real life). I’m also a bright type, but there are also times when I occasionally can become negative, but I’m basically the positive one. Later after I noticed that I can resemble (the character) as myself, I was able to relax and acts as “Lee Jung Shin”. I’m not that rich (chaebol) person (LOL), but since I’m being an entertainer and a singer…there are many things in common. There are a lot of parts where the word I spoke (in the drama) is similar to the word that I speak to myself, so I thought maybe it could make me grow for 1 or 2 stages…?

— I have a question for Lee Jung Shin. When Kang Seo Woo appeared dressing up like a woman, it was pretty impressive. But from your point of view, do you think when Seo Woo dressed up like a girl looks good?

Jungshin : I guess you could laugh because it wasn’t fit nor suitable at all, but I was pretty uneasy about that scene~! I have a thick legs hair… (LOL) Is it called “Ashige (in Japanese)?” I’m still good with my thick legs hair, but my legs are thin like a woman. So, it looks like a hairy woman legs, I guess fans will be disappointed…. For people who had expected for a solid/firm man thighs…I’m sorry but I’m here with my thin legs (LOL).

 img-79b0e67bbe8e3cd54792673b52a82a49

— On the drama, Kang Seo Woo wrote “Confession” and “You Pour a Star” for Eun Ha Won who played by Park So Dam, but which song does Jungshin himself got attached more from those two?

Jungshin : Hmmm…if I have to choose one from two maybe “Confession”. I felt great to be able to participate in the OST with two songs “Confession” and “You Pour a Star”. I’ve never participated in the OST of the drama I’m playing, but with this drama I was able to challenge myself for the first time, and fans were pleased (delighted)! Even in CNBLUE activities I’ve never sung any part other than chorus, but it seemed like there are some who wants to hear my voice more (LOL). I feel like my heart is full when people saying “I was glad to hear your voice”.

— On this drama, there are many actors who has the same age, how was the atmosphere on the shooting site?

Jungshin : So far, all of the shooting sites on dramas that I’ve appeared have nice atmosphere, but shooting sites for this drama was also really good. We’re close even with the younger, same age, or older actors…. Kim Yong Gun senior was there, and he really has that kind of sense. When I knew that there is a senior, I thought that I’m going to feel awkward, but Yong Gun senior is a very funny person and loves to throw some jokes, so it was fun to have a shoot (for the drama).

— What kind of work does “Cinderella and The Four Knights” casts do?

Jungshin : Even though I’m more into a singer, but I also work as an actor, and this work is the 5th for me, I felt that I was able to make a step forward as an actor. Of course, there are parts that I regret, some parts that seems fine/successful, I have various thoughts on it, even after it all ends, the regret still remain. But, you can’t grow without regrets! Even during my activities with CNBLUE, we did the tour and its DVD released six months after the tour ended, although there are parts that I think it’s cool even if I watched it, but there are also some parts that I think weren’t that good. But, it become a noticeable evidence that I’m growing on that six months. I said this because at some point you can improve further more the good ones, like you can see it by your own eyes looking on it and say it to yourself “don’t do this in the future” (for the not-so-good part). For me this work is like “a step forward of the growing process” and “an important experience”.

— Please tell the ‘watching point’ to the Japanese viewers who have been looking forward into “Cinderella and The Four Knights”.

Jungshin : Even the point of a heart-throbbing part between male and female may vary to each person and depends on the country itself, but I hope Korean “heart-attack” (heart-throbbing) point will be wide-spread to Japan! Also, to fans who said that they like me (LOL), from now on, even if you can’t see this drama on any websites or else on internet, as long as you can see it through TV easily, I also feel happy. Even to all my fans who have watched over me from my debut on 2009, I hope you can relax while enjoying it (the drama).

[TRANS] CNBLUE Interview on Haru Hana Magazine Vol. 38

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!

Strawberry Boy

js ceci 2015 march

Debut Drama Production “My Daughter, Seoyoung”, stupid youngest son, Kang Sung Jae, historical-drama “Blade and Flower” cute and upstage in the society, youngest Yowon, mini-series “Temptation” as spoiled and unemployed Nam Hong Gyu and first broadcast of one-act played based ‘Thank you, Son’ repeater Jang Si Woo. Every year one production, living as other person and lived their life even qualified as ‘Best New Actor’ Lee Jung Shin. On top of that, just few times ago, receiving Best Asia Awards, on one recording awards show receive an awesome “4 gold awards” as Korean Representatives Band, also as a personnel of CNBLUE. After debuting 5 years ago without rest and difficulty finally get a proper place now, and setting your way in music industry.

CeCi You usually use a dark tone clothes, do you caught in surprise by today’s concept “Pinky Boy“?
Of course not. If not this this I wonder when will I wear this kind of clothes. Because of that, it was fun to wear these clothes. I don’t know if it’s sincere or not, but staffs really dressed me well and I am happy about that. (laugh)

CeCi Recently the most issue is your drama “Thank you, Son”. It’s your first time as lead actor, please give us your testimonials and introduce your drama.
(After taking a deep breath) It’s part 2 of trilogy of one-act plays, it’s a family centered drama. As time goes, a life transition of a goldsmith’s life, it was at that time. Usually, I have lots of interest in one act-plays, opportunity finally came and I enjoyed the shoot so much. Among the actors, as a maknae (youngest) I learn from them. I had tried a novelty experience that cannot be compared to money.

CeCi If we look at your experience one year once! You did one drama per year. Perhaps you intended to do so? Looks like a great earnest student.
Haha! Is it possible if I intended to do so? (CeCi A drama a year, you must be pleased of fast-paced.) Without being arrogant, I am still lacking. To relieve the thirst of acting at least I did once per year but CN BLUE activities too was important, compared than before our world tour is more packed so we need to set a regulation. This year I’ve tried one-act plays drama, I hope I can do one more drama.

CeCi Each of your drama has different genre. Weekend drama, historical drama, mini-series, till one-act plays drama.
That’s what I said. It’s not much but I can learn each time I tried new drama, it was fun. Artist’s opinion is important and thanks to the company we get more experience and challenge, so along with the company I tried a similar form of role.

CeCi ‘My daughter Seoyoung’ Kang Sung Jae, it was quite awkward at first, but nearing the end you gave a contributions to the drama.
Oh God. . I had lot of worries, because it’s my first drama. ‘Kang Sung Jae. . . ‘ I want to people to remember the name ‘Kang Sung Jae’. I don’t care of what people said, I can’t see what people hear though. So, slowly striking basic scourged. Now I vowed to show my mature image as an actor.

CeCi Each of CNBLUE member had their own activities. What is your secret?
Not all production come out well, so I just need to remember what production is the best of all. If the rating is low, actors and drama are all submerged. Till now I had accumulated light experience and I don’t want to lose it. Gaining lots of stage experience is important.

CeCi Every interview ‘A Right Guy’. How about right guy Lee Jung Shin love feeling?
The woman that I can talk to although the same age as me or older than me. (CeCi in opposition what so not your type?) Liars! I really hate lies. Love, every time is always have a drought memory to me. What did I say now! (laugh)

CeCi If you did a relationship in space between, if all people are busy like top star relationship, really want to do it.
Right. How busy a person is all~ have to understand that relationships.

CeCi You are caught in March White Day. Please tell us you memorable memories.
(With serious gaze) White Day is the day that a man gives to woman right? (CeCi when doing a long-time relationship, you started to finish that kind of things. In reality, want to give something) Aa, I slowly dig my own grave. (laugh) Anyway I am not the type that giving presents.

CeCi If we did internet search on ‘Lee Jung Shin’, explain what come on top of the seach.
Perhaps~ Lee Jung Shin, Nam Joo Hyuk? (CeCi Right, somehow you have a deep relations with Nam Joo Hyuk.) HaHa! Lots of people said that both of us looks similar and I am curious of that, and finally we met in during fashion show. I felt strange. After that meeting JTBC <I’m Going to School> I met him again there, now ‘F2 Stupid Flower Guy’. I don’t know but during the recording, we monitored first broadcast and Joo Hyuk said this. ‘Hyung! We just appeared like imprudent guys’ and I think it will be more fun in the future.

CeCi Time passes by (Interview on February 8) ‘Golden Disk Awards’ (January 15 broadcast) you received 4 awards.
‘TOP CeCi Asia Icon’ it’s always happy to me. January last year, CNBLUE photo shoot cover and through destiny <CeCi> a vague relationship. HaHa! When on my way to practice room, if look into a framed picture of our cover all members feel proud. Earlier we received ‘China Goodwill Star Awards’ that was given to star who has done goodwill. CN BLUE has built a school in Africa, but in fact we received this awards thanks to our fans. With our names, we gave back to the society and an awards to all our kind fans. ‘Aichidi’ China movies site, we were selected through voting. (CeCi At first glance I heard that approximately 150 million vote obtained. That was a lot!) All of us were surprised, and extremely shocked. This year remarked our fifth year of debut, we are proud of all awards we received.

CeCi Recently is there anyone you want to write letter to? Today, starting from your parents to myself, please write a letter each.
<to. Parents> I always want to be a filial son. If there is something like hard work, along with worries I want to be a friend-like youngest son.
<to. My Hyung> My brother that only 2 years apart from me. Although we live together but we call and message each other so much sometimes as girlfriend will misunderstood. From now on we have to commit to each other and live happily.
<to. Girl person friend> I am such a rare person to discover around, girl (person). I cannot approach first so don’t be shy and please understand me.
<to. Virtual Girlfriend> Someday meeting Girlfriend! When the time comes I will treat you right.
<Guy friends> Always never-ending only like friends. What I meant, indeed a good meaning? Or bad meaning? What an ambiguous catch. (laugh) Please stay the same for a long long time.
<to. Lovable fans> I don’t understand all of your feelings and I knew that I am lacking. I am wondering. Let’s be friends in the future!
<to. Lee Jung Shin> For me who suffer strict and rough road, I’m sorry. But apparently remembered! To myself Lee Jung Shin “cheers”.
