CNBLUE in Excite Music Interview “White”

white15

Excite: We were surprised the synthesizer sounds of your latest song ‘WHITE’. This was made by jonghyun, when have you started making this song?

Jonghyun: It was when we had a tour ‘CNBLUE 2014 ARENA TOUR “WAVE”’ last year.. I had also another schedule like “2014 KINGDOM IN JAPAN-STARLIGHT-“,
I thought to want to make fun song. It was the same way to make a song as always, first of all, I play a phrase with a guitar, then tried arrangement with a PC. This song didn’t have strong sounds, but I’ve made more and more strong.

Excite: You’ve thought to keep going?

Jonghyun: Yes (Laugh) It might too much though (Laugh). Because there was the theme ‘Color’ this time, we thought it was ‘WHITE’.

Excite: We read the lyric. What does it mean for ‘WHITE’ for you?

Jonghyun: There are the light’s three primary colors, and these colors make white even if we mix them up. But in the case of just random color, if we mix them up, they make black. I think that people come to black thinking more and more.. So the theme is ‘be the light!’

Jungshin: For me, I’ve thought that Jonghyun-hyeong always made ballad song like ‘FOXY’ and ‘ECLIPSE’. I think this time’s ‘WHITE’ is different from our songs so far. So, when I heard beginning of this song first, I felt a little bit weird. But I heard it again and again, I’ve been getting the feeling that this is very good.

Minhyuk: As Jungshin said, because I like ‘Eclipse’, ‘Blind Love’ and ‘Never Too late’ as Jonghyun’s song style, I was surprised when I heard this song and felt that he challenged something new. And because this song has lots of synthesizer sounds, I thought “Actually is it our song?”, but I felt fresh about it.

Yonghwa: I also thought that this was a different song so far. And it’s different from the image as a song of CNBLUE ever too. This is attractive song that has refrain of synthesized sounds.

Jungshin: We expect our fan’s response after they heard this song.

Excite: What kind of charm did you want to add to this song by your own bass guitar play?

Jungshin: I think there is a feeling that Jonghyun-hyeong want to, right? So, I played my bass guitar along with it.

Minhyuk: When I was recording, I tried to play along the song. But We’ll arrange it after recording, so I stopped wondering if I play fit with the song or not. I think I play with freedom. Recently, I play drums
by my feeling.

Excite: The feeling that you want to try to be honest to my own feeling is getting more and more?

Minhyuk: I can say Yes.

Excite: The members talked about this song that surprised us, but this is just as your think?

Jonghyun: Yes. In a way it is fun for me. Am I funny? (Laugh)

Everyone: (Laugh)

Jonghyun: I think when fans heard this song, they would be surprised.

Excite: Have you thought that you wanted to try to surprise fans?

Jonghyun: I haven’t had that feeling before. But I have got it more and more.

Excite: Your latest album ‘WAVE’ was the work that showed your sound improvement. This time, do you want to show more changes or improvement in this single CD?

Jonghyun: Well… Actually, I haven’t thought deeply as same as other members. We have had 10 years experiences after starting to play instruments, so I think this change happened naturally. Even except the music, everyone is getting more and more improve while they are practicing. I can say the experience is important.

Minhyuk: I think so.

Jungshin: I think we leave our change to take its own course. We don’t want change on purpose, but let them improve with the passage of time Of course, we might try to something change meaningly. We didn’t think that we have to change this time.

Minhyuk: We surely have improved, but we don’t have some greed to dare to improve. I just did what I felt.

Excite: You just finished to take your MV for this song (*We interviewed them in Feb). We heard that a mystery man will appear in the MV. How was about taking the MV with him?

Yonghwa:… well, he is a strange man.

Jonghyun: absolutely. He was dancing till the end (Laugh). He is really barrel of laughs.

Minhyuk: MR. WHITE is stylish person and pretty Fashionista!

Jungshin: We have had a heroine or ourselves in our MV ever, but this time there were Mr. WHITE. It made us feel different feelings.

Yonghwa: We don’t watch that MV yet, but I impressed about the lighting that was really beautiful.

Excite: Yonghwa’s solo album have released in March and the other members have appeared drama. All of you participate actively in solo. Has something changed about the position of the band CNBLUE in your mind?

Jungshin: I think CNBLUE is such an another family for me. I have something good and something bad in my solo activity. When I am tired, meeting the members makes me to feel relieved. I meet them for working like this, I can feel like that I ‘m at home.

Jonghyun: I don’t think that the activity with CNBLUE is ‘the work’. So, the members do the ‘work’ in their solo activity and then relax here (=the place in CNBLUE). After relaxing in the place of CNBLUE, we go the ‘work’. I think our members are doing their best even if they are in a hard time. I’m proud of that and that helps me to study of life. I think I’ll do my best with them.

Yonghwa: …..

Jungshin: (look at Yonghwa) What is such an expression?! (Laugh)

Yonghwa: I feel like ashamed…

Jungshin: (Laugh) Sometimes we are asked “What do you think about the other members?” In interview. I really hard to answer it because I got some pressure. We are really familiar, like a family.

Minhyuk: We don’t live without family or friends, and everyone has them. CNBLUE is like a family or friend for me. I can say in a different way, ‘the water’.

Excite: They have existing as if it is common sense, but must have.

Jonghyun: We can say so. It has been 10 years since we met first, and we had been living together from we were young. So, I can say I miss it, in a both way of good and bad.

Excite: Absolutely invaluable like a common destiny.

Minhyuk: We want to keep being such a durable band, and have a cool concert. This is my dream.

Yonghwa: Even if we would have own family someday, I want to have a tour with these members!

Jung Yonghwa
Things that Yonghwa get into…”customize a car. “
I am very concerned about how I will customize my car? I don’t buy a new car. I want to be decorate them not only inside but outside. Of course I won’t to infringe a law (Laugh). A concept? It might be an American style? (Laugh)

Lee Jonghyun
Things that Jonghyun get into…”Philosophy“
I like philosophy since over one year and study it with reading books. I like to read a book too, and also like difficult story. Why do I have to earn the money? Why are we alive? I get basically precepts for my life. I am concerned about the economy too. But even though I’ve talked about them to someone, I am looked at like a stranger. So, I enjoy them by myself (Laugh). I got to know I had been living without thinking. I want to get a knowledge more and more. There are lots of things I have to learn.

Kang Minhyuk
Things that Minhyuk get into…”A comfortable bed“
I can’t sleep well during Summer, but I can sleep well during Winter. Because ‘a hibernation’ is important for me, I look for a comfortable bed. Actually, I’ve got a new one about one month ago, it’s soft and warm. But I still look for another one in good design.

Lee Jungshin
Things that Jungshin get into is…”A fashion & A dog“
I’ll appear a TV program about fashion in Korea, I want to learn about a fashion. And I have had Golden Retriever from Aug who was born in June. He is already 34kg, even he is still pappy. When I back to home, he welcomes me. His name is “Shimba”.

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)

Part 1. Team Star 5 Person Mini Interview

CNBLUE Yong Hwa

<One Fine Day> doing fine. In this album, what kind of impression do you want to make. For now, there is still a boundary between idol and artists, sort of ambiguously apart. Through this solo album activity, fans have tried the taste and content, and others also feeling content of this album.

In fact as CN BLUE main vocal you always received spotlight, and now you even succeeded with your solo album, don’t you think other members are jealous of you. Although I can’t read their feelings but they really encouraged me a lot. (laugh) Anyway as I also bring CN BLUE face it will be better to be good than ruining it. Felt some kind of burden.

As a leader and Hyung(elder brother) to your members always keep manners and major of it. We also had time when we messed with others and nuance time also arises. But we have to keep it with caution. I didn’t force the others. They following me well. And I am feeling grateful of that as an elder brother.

Distinction between Actor Jung Yong Hwa and CN BLUE Jung Yong Hwa on stage. Singer Jung Yong Hwa is what I think the best thing that I can do among others. I want to be better in acting. As actor Jung Yong Hwa I only participated in 4 drama production and it’s interesting to live as other people for a few months in a drama. If I see my drama character seems like a chance to feel “Refresh”. Because of my singing activities, I tried to work even harder in acting.

All four members becoming acting-dol, among all how will you rank their position? If we only look at one production only, it will be an ambiguous act to vote number 1. All have to follow direction of writer, different role, all four of us still lacking. We are still in the middle of finding of own style of acting.

If you can absorb ability from other members, what kind of point do you want to learn. It will be great if other members tell me if I do have that kind of ability. (laugh) I have lots of greed. Since I was a kid I always hate losing. I want to be flexible in terms.

In variety show, you always show Park Young Gyu impersonation as your individual skills. It’s been so long and wondering if you research for a new one. I don’t practice to show off individual skills. (laugh) I always did Park Young Gyu impersonation in front of my friends since I was a kid. I did in variety show and the reaction was good, suddenly became burden. I am the style to do impromptu kind of act. I am also wondering when my new individual skills will appear. (laugh)

Until not long ago, you exercised hard and your evolution becoming hot topic between fans. Sure, it is. (laugh) If the season came to exercise again my face started to aged. Once I start exercising again, I severely did 2~3 hours a day. My mom said it will be great if I gain my face fat again.

I heard that you really like basketball since you were a kid. Do you ever think of being a basketball athlete? When I was in elementary school, I thought of being an athlete because of my height that keeps on growing. I also did free-style basketball on the street. Now I am in middle-school. Friends who are shorter than me started to overtake and started blocking. Since that time, I folded to become a basketball athlete. (laugh)

CNBLUE Jung Yonghwa in HIGHCUT Magazine Vol. 144 Interview

HIGH CUT VOL.144 (26)

COVER CUT
EDITOR Lee Hwi Seung
PHOTOGRAPHER Mok Na Jung
STYLIST Lee Hye Young
HAIR Im Hye Gyung
MAKE UPLee Sun Mi

“First time shooting a pictorial. Because afraid of camera, I really want to runaway.” 5 years ago, one day on November 2009, <You’re Beautiful> ‘Milk Man’ along with <HIGH CUT> that’s how I recalled that first shoot. That day, the first time we saw Jung Yong Hwa, such a lively boy like his nickname. Now its time to remove that prince image inside the fairytale. It’s left with a rough male to shoot a water scene that requested exposure. “I supposed to prepared my body shape from a month ago, I want to show but there is nothing to show now” I don’t have confidence. I change into sleeveless top to show my body shape and come out “Is this really okay?” that what I asked. To calm woman’s heart with a quiet muscle. Sofa and sofa, I was told to move between space and space. With all power, I lied down on sofa and wildly breathe rested on. With two hands supported my body to show my arm muscles. Inside the black&white photos moving freely and more of variable face than in the drama. February 2015 I will remembered this day. Finally Jung Yong Hwa that becoming a male One Fine Day. Reporter Lee Hwi Seung.

About 5 hours of pictorial shooting process facing a seated Jung Yong Hwa. In this pictorial seems like a hunky man showing his forearm as a point but during interview he showed a 27 years old youth image. CNBLUE Leader and main vocal Jung Yong Hwa back with first album. Title track “One Fine Day” so different from CNBLUE. Instruments strengthen Jung Yong Hwa sweet timbre vocal. In this album from lyrics and arrangement made by himself, exceptionally among singer, 8 songs with own arrangement showing his unlimited competency as singer-songwriter. Rather than his thick lips a shy smile is more suitable for Jung Yong Hwa Interview. Reporter Jo Kyung Lee.

Few days ago, in<Radio Star>program seems to be severe. Han Seong Ho Director “Between Lee Hong Gi and Jung Yong Hwa who will be inherit this company” pointed to Jung Yong Hwa.

In fact, this is really become severe. <Radio Star> If I talk more in that program seems bad. My relationship (With Lee Hong Gi) is good and we’re doing fine.

After that program aired, reaction on Han Seong Ho Director was hot. He looked more of people from variety than person who affiliate artist and we were surprised of that.

Before his appearance, our director like any director from other company, he was also felt dignity and weight also. Somehow still it’s the company representative who went there. I hope that the program will go well through his riprap style. When it aired, none of us watched the broadcast but when we don’t packed schedule, we think of it. One representative said, I don’t want to say formal greeting here. <laugh>

There are lots of dash woman but you keep on rejecting, it was called “Incarnation of self-management”
(dash) there aren’t a lot . . . Self-Management as a Blood Type A, I don’t express my feeling much. I am on the side which will not choose the thing that I will regret later.

Your ideal type now?
My ideal type is Kim Yuna. I saw her once when filming CF, looks like I am seeing her inside a glass bar. Although we are close (in distance) but I can’t get closer. Her pose is extraordinary.

‘Our loving memories, our precious time, I still cannot forget’. You directly wrote your own lyrics for your album title track.
I wrote lyrics based on background experience. I thought that by writing lyrics though own experience, people will feeling more empathy.

All 10 songs in your album is important, other than your title track, the track that you have most affection.
All of the songs that I wrote are important but these days I like last track 27years. Old time memories, I got to remember memories when in school time or childhood.

Yoon Do Hyun, Verbal Jint, Yang Dong Geun, JJ Lin and Peter Mallick, you have collaborated with artist from many kinds of genre.
‘Cruel Memories’ I imagined that Yoon Do Hyun Senior will sing when I wrote the songs. Fortunately, I am grateful for all seniors who did great in my album. So we met that day, wrote lyrics and record together in recording studio. Yang Dong Geun Hyung (big brother) we did <The Three Musketeers>we often wrote lyrics for “Mileage”. And now that I think about that, for the rap section Yang Dong Geun Hyung wrote about 2~3 hours and send it to me.

You used to do activities as singer in group but now you do it alone.
When I won no.1, lots of people giving me support in our agency’s Katalk Room. Usually when I was doing solo activities, I don’t meet them often so we are contacting each other in Katalk. On top of it, our member did sent message vote. (laugh)

I heard that as CN BLUE leader, members are doing well on their own.
It’s not that I am saying ‘No’. But I’m the type to do things slowly one by one and I will say no if can, so the members like ‘If Hyung (big brother) don’t do it … we also…’ I think of that way.

You have participated in 4 dramas <You’re Beautiful><You’ve Fallen for Me><Future’s Choice><The Three Musketeers>.
There’s nothing to forget after filming dramas. To me it became a good experiences.

There is always something to regret regarding the viewers’ rating but in fact there is nothing to be controversy of that.
When the time as a student, learning about acting one by one, now seeing script and felt the emotion to fit the character. Somehow it will the character that I acted so I have to express the right emotion too. Sometimes we cannot get by learning. The style that I want to be, I also don’t learn songs, although I’ve learn earlier that still minus, I am the style to be gaining more by myself.

You already did the first step well but sometimes if you move to other spot you are feeling in heavier level. At that time, you want to leap over the difficult part.
Because of that, I will do it (alone). Pleasure when jump, I want to enjoy the exaggeration, I am not the style that get frustrated easily.

Your life’s motto is?
‘Time is gold’. The meantime it clicks a day’s dome I write lyrics. I thought time shouldn’t be wasted just like that. If I am doing other hobby or activities, it wil be a waste. And if I have those time I will use it to write songs and doing any other things.

We’re back to talk about your solo album, on the day of ‘One Fine Day’ released got number 1 spot on ITunes chart in 7 countries such as HongKong, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Macau, etc. 7 February on number 1 Billboard World Chart, and on China Gaon Weibo number 1 in 10 weeks. You’ve called as‘Greater China Prince’.
To tell you the truth, I am truly grateful. Chinese fans are really passionate and active. They came to Korea and even in my birthday they put an Advertisement on subway. I also felt that way when having concert in South America. Because Korea is the motherland the feels is natural, but to received such a great reaction abroad its still fascinating to me.

After debuting 6 years ago, you finally held you solo concert titled “One Fine Day” from 27 February. You will be visiting 6 countries and 8 cities on this Asia Tour.
Doing live band instruments as background for a concert but during solo tour I will bring alongwith session and band to bring out different colours. It will be different from CN BLUE as a band. I will be playing new songs live, although it became more burden to me but I’ll challenge myself and expected much from it. I prepared the best well.

CNBLUE group activities, drama, solo album release, solo concert, etc, you have expand formidable activities.
It looks like I have lots of greed. And I want to make it happen. My solo already started and already started acting, I still want to expand and do it well in every sector.

Sure is tiring.
Few years I’ve been sowing my greed but it still not over yet. You should do it while in your twenties. Looks like bulldozer push stick. Sometimes there’s also tiring time. It led to frustration at that time but as time goes by it’ll like calluses and stay there.

What did you do to when frustration came?
I sleep, and I feel better when waking up. I am not the type to think deeply on problem so I feel better after waking up. It because I don’t have any thoughts while sleeping.

You still haven’t fulfil your greed to star in movie.
I want to try a movie. Not long ago, I met Director Kim Han Min from movie <Roaring Currents>. I said New Year greetings and got to sit beside him during one event. Although its our first time meeting, we changed phone number and sometimes called each other. After finishing my activities, I would like to give him a call and asked to join me to have soju together.

Latest entertaining movies that you watched.
I enjoyed movie <Her>. It’s about cyber love but the materials is exciting. Cinematic colour really pretty.

You took role of 1 man show MNet <Jung Yong Hwa Hologram>. Plan, composition, production, shooting, appearance you did it on your own. How was it?
It is very real. Super fun. At first I think a lot on ‘How will I shoot this’ but after shooting it becoming more comfortable. I used Go Pro at first then changed it to camera. It was a fun shoot. During reality program you forcibly had to make it entertaining made it burden to me, but I didn’t feel it at all. I don’t do it by feel. Although it becoming burden at the beginning, but there’s nothing artificial so I don’t have to talk and burden lesser. Shooting was comfortable.

Is there any actual public opinion of Jung Yong Hwa that people misunderstood?
In general it’s about my prince image, they thought I am smart. But I think that you will be surprised of my real self in <Hologram>. Its non-purpose for my prince image, it doesn’t really matter, but I wanted to normal human. Also with my close friend to create “sesame bonding”.

Before your debut, you said you liked Girls’ Generation, girl group you like recently.
Now Girls Generation has become close confederate and the feel now and then is different. I am close with Tiffany and everybody evenly close. Recently my favourite girl group of course, family company AOA, but nowadays girl group like AOA till G-Friend all sweet and pretty.

If you go to Music Broadcast, there are lots of your junior.
I’ve become a Sunbae (Senior). Nowadays, because they still young they used to 90 degrees bow when we greet. This time while promoting my solo album, I rarely can go outside the waiting room. Lots of junior came to give their CD and said greetings to me.

Because you are so busy, you don’t have time to date.
Of course, what should I say here. (laugh)
