Lee Jonghyun (from CNBLUE) 『SPARKLING NIGHT』Official Interview

Either band or solo, I only want to enjoy the music with fans

 main_interview1

“Moonlight Swing” become the lead song of your first solo album “SPARKLING NIGHT”, but it comes out with a swing genre, which is quite unimaginable.

…I never thought about it also. So it’s funny (laughs). It’s a song that’s composed by an American or European song writer, where I can’t compose such piece of music like that. Because, there is something that’s carved in a DNA. But in Japan swing music isn’t a major one, also since J.Y. Park’s “Swing Baby” is a hit song at its time and people sing it at karaoke so I’m quite familiar.

 

The lyrics are very romantic, but are you a romantic entertainer?

…Considerably, romantic (laughs). But, I’m too embarrassed to actually do it in action, so put it as lyrics is better. I think every man has the pieces of himself which looks like the lyrics.

 

About escorting of your dream girl, what will you do?

…Well, I’ll do anything what she wants. That’s important, isn’t it? So if there’s anyone that makes me interested, I’ll find out about what type of man that she likes, if she likes a quiet man then I’ll become a quiet man, if she likes an interesting man then I’ll be an interesting man (laughs).

 

It’s changing yourself?

…Yes. Anything for you (laughs).

 

In Moonlight Swing MV it shows off yourself dancing without guitar, but this is also surprising.

…It’s not dancing! It’s about feeling the rhythm. There are 2 dancers with me, but I’m not dancing, I’m just shaking (laughs). The set is gorgeous, then I sang in the mood for a gorgeous man. It’s quiet but very good.  More than I expected, it was fun.

 

In the album, the lead songMoonlight Swing written by the song writer’s and also the other 5 songs, Jonghyun’s self-written 4 songs, and a cover of “I LOVE YOU” from Yutaka Ozaki has been recorded. I was thinking and guessing that you only do your favorite blues and quiet song to be on your solo and it’s challenging to have various genre.

…There’s also blues, but probably my configuration is surprising? It’s a place where my own song is, and not a band sound. Of course CNBLUE is a band, we do a refreshing band sounds, but in solo it’s about the unusual ideas which is also a refreshing overlook. In band, I have to discuss things to the members one by one, but this one I can do my favorite things alone by myself, it’s easy (laughs).  But, I also feel lonely when I’m doing solo.

 

I wonder if any CNBLUE member considered to participate in your album?

…Everyone is busy with shooting for drama (laughs). The fact is, I was supposed to get to write a song for Yonghwa, but Yonghwa also can’t be meet that often since he is go abroad for shooting (laughs). But I was motivated.

 

As a solo entertainer, what type of artists would you describe yourself?

…I don’t think about myself as a solo artist that much. Solo or band is just the same. I’m just having fun with music. Also, to play the guitar at home or stage it’s also just the same, I might say such “because it’s live broadcasting today, I have to put the fight in” without consciousness and it’s fun, it does the same in any time. I also did a Japan solo fan meeting last August, and number of people who came is more than my expectations. For the following stage is not a fan meeting, because I made a solo album, it’s about music and I want to share the time with live performances. It’s an album to be enjoyed along with the fans.
