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.

CNBLUE Blind Love Interview on Oricon Style

We had an interview to CNBLUE whom the 5th single CD is well received.


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

“When you heard this song, I want you to think that it is a good song.”


“Blind Love” is a new type love song written by Jonghyun.

Jonghyun: I made this song only for our fans but also for such as the people who walk around. Almost people like a love song, I have written this song with simple word.

We can actually visualize the scene. Is it a story that is still thinking of the person who broke up? I feel wistful but warm.

Jonghyun: To begin with, I like such a song.

Yonghwa: Love song~. It’s good.

Jungshin: The lyric is worth to listen to.

Jonghyun: Depends on the situation, I think the impression of lyric might change. It has an image of nostalgic, warm and shiny feeling.

Minhyuk: We played this song for fans for the first time on the other day; I felt that atmosphere is different from live and recording. I could get into this song and raise my spirits because we have a lighting and special effect on live.

Jonghyun: I was happy that fans had felling for this song and sung it with us.

Yonghwa-san, what did you feel when you sang this song?

Yonghwa: The melody is simple and the lyric is easy to memorize, so I was able to finish to recording it faster than usual.

How long did it take to make this music?

Jonghyun: I had had a rough image since the end of the last year and I made a serious attempt in one week in January. I had made it on the back stage of the award ceremony on year-end though, I was asked to do it on the staircase because there are lots of groups there. I made a melody on there, and when I went back to home I arranged it.


But it was noisy there isn’t it?

Jonghyun: I didn’t care about it. Sometimes I sing to myself in front of others.

Jungshin: I am annoyed with it.

Yonghwa: It is a little awkward

Jonghyun: Seriously?  I am sorry.

Jungshin: Just joking.

Yonghwa: It’s okay!

Oh, good. Well, next is about “With your eyes”. It is also composed by Jonghyun. But this song is an aggressive rock tune and it has a different image from “Blind Love”.

Jonghyun: Yes, it is totally different.

And the lyric were all written in English.

Jonghyun: We can not surely say “This is the life” in my age such as 23 or 24 years old. However this is a message that “Since it’s our own life, Let you do it by yourself! But it doesn’t make only yourself and it is difficult to find an answer of life, let’s find it out together.”

It has a big theme of life starting from love.

Minhyuk: This time’s our single CD has good lyrics.


“Greedy man” was composed by Yonghwa that has rock tune.

Yonghwa: I made this story attached with love. I can say this is enjoyable love song.

Jonghyun: Our single includes different variations music in each time though; there are especially different types at this time. You could feel “This is CNBLUE.”

We are progressing towards the future, we want to be shown evolved CNBLUE

Now you are having a world tour, I heard you make a big wave in each country.

Jungshin: We had had a live in Taiwan and Singapore, and next up is ZEPP tour in Japan, we will go to Thailand and Hong Kong. Since every time fans give us rapturous welcome, we are looking forward to going there and our spirits are raised high. We can feel we have a good live.

Whenever you have a live, we can see your evolution as a band.

Minhyuk: The live tour in Japan is a live house performance after a long time for us. The stage is close to the fan, we are looking forward to doing it.


We are excited for ZEPP tour. By the way, from “Greedy man”, what are you greedy for?

Yonghwa: (quickly) for sleep!

Jungshin: Me too. I have 100 % desire for sleep.

Junghyun: I have the strongest desire for sleep among members.

Minhyuk: Me too, desiring for sleep.

Yonghwa: Sleeping is more important than eating for us now.

Jonghyun: It is happy to sleep without thinking anything.

Oh, you look so tired…

Jungshin: From the beginnings, I like to sleep.

Have you experienced that because a song comes up with your head, while you were trying to sleep, you couldn’t sleep?

Jonghyun: Yes I have. If I try to sleep while music is playing, I keep listening to this music, so I cannot sleep. I always keep in silence.

Have you ever had a dream to be pressed by producing a music, or coming up with a song in your dream?

Jonghyun: No, I have actually not, and I don’t want to have such a dream.

Yonghwa: I have never seen a dream about music.

Minhyuk: Me too.

Jungshin: I don’t remember almost what I’ve dream of.

Yonghwa: But I may want to see a nightmare.


A  nightmare?  Does it seem that there is nobody in live?

Yonghwa: Oh, no, no, I don’t want to see it. I would like to see that a ghost comes, or having an experience what I cannot experience in the reality.

Jonghyun: I may have desire for eating than sleeping. I think I am a light eater but I can get a good power from eating a delicious food!

At last, in “Blind Love”.  The main character is still thinking of the person who broke up. Are you the person who keeps to having a memory of the love? Or are you the person that can be switched feeling immediately?

Jonghyun: I think it depends on the other side.

Minhyuk: I would like to memorize only a good memory.

You just do daringly don’t you?

Jonghyun: If we memorized only the good memory, we can forget bad memories, can’t we?

Yonghwa: I memorize everything. I can’t believe that the person who forget the memories.

These your thinking reflects to your song?

Yonghwa: Yes, I don’t always think or remember about our memories. But our experiences are refracted. In our music even these are good or bad

Jungshin: I don’t remember the all memories, but I remember the impressive, happy thing. I can remember. That the saddest memories instead.

Jonghyun: Of course. We are here now because there is past. The past is also important, but we are progressing towards the future rather than live in the past! After a world tour, you can see we’re grown up.

Minhyuk: Let’s enjoy ZEPP tour together!

Yonghwa: We are doing our best to be shown evolved CNBLUE.

Jungshin: We’ll express the cool of CNBLUE with sounds. Have a fun!


Japanese Interview


5thシングル「Blind Love」も好評なCNBLUE。今回は久々にメンバー4人揃ってのインタビューを遂行しました!




――シングル「Blind Love」は、ジョンヒョンさん作詞・作曲による、新たなラブソングとなっていますね。

【ジョンヒョン】 僕たちのファンの人にはもちろんですが、普通に道を歩いているときとか、ふとこの曲を耳にして、あっいい曲だなって思われるようなものを目指して作りました。ラブソングってみんな好きだし、共感できる人が多いから、歌詞もシンプルにわかりやすく書きました。


【ジョンヒョン】 そもそも僕自身、そういう感じが好きなんですよね。
【ヨンファ】 愛の歌~いいですね~。
【ジョンシン】 歌詞は、一番の聴きどころだと思います。
【ジョンヒョン】 聴く人の状況によって、歌詞の印象がガラッと変わると思います。また春ということで、懐かしい雰囲気、淡い色合いといいますか。全体的にキラキラしたイメージを出しました。
【ミンヒョク】 この間、ライブで初披露したんですけ ど、レコーディングのときとライブとでは雰囲気が全然違うなと感じました。ライブだと照明が当たったり、特別な効果が融合して、どんどんこの曲にのめり込 むことができました。何よりファンのみなさんの反応が良くて、自然とテンションがあがりました。
【ジョンヒョン】 ファンのみなさんがこの曲を感じながら、一緒に口ずさんでくれて嬉しかったです。


【ヨンファ】 メロディーが簡単で、歌詞も覚えやすくて、いつもより早くレコーディングが終わりました。



【ジョンヒョン】 昨年の 年末に思いついて、本格的に取り掛かったのは、今年の1月ぐらいから1週間ぐらいかな。年末の授賞式のときの楽屋裏で作ったんですけど、たくさんのグルー プがいるから、階段でやってくださいって言われて(笑)。階段でメロディーを作って、うちに帰ってからアレンジをしました。


【ジョンヒョン】 僕は、誰かがいるほうが曲が思いつきやすいんですよ。でも、うるさいと曲作りに集中できないから、そのなかで静かな場所を探して、ギターを持っていって作るんです。あと、カフェとかでも、歌いながら曲作りしてますね。


【ジョンヒョン】 まったく気にならないですね。だから、ひと前でも平気でメロディーを口ずさんだりしています。
【ジョンシン】 迷惑です。
【ヨンファ】 ちょっと困ります。
【ジョンヒョン】 そうですよね。ごめんなさい。
【ジョンシン】 嘘です(笑)。
【ヨンファ】 大丈夫です!

――よかったです。では、2曲目の「With your eyes」について。この曲もジョンヒョンさんが手掛けてますね。でも、「Blind Love」とはイメージが異なる、アグレッシブなライブチューンになっていますが。

【ジョンヒョン】 まったく違いますね。


【ジョンヒョン】 僕たち はまだ23,4才で、今の段階で人生はこんなものだって言ったらおかしいかもしれないですけど、とにかく人生って自分のものだから、自分でちゃんと作って いこう!でも、ひとりで人生は作れるものじゃないし、答えも見つからないから、一緒に探そうっていう、メッセージを込めました。


【ミンヒョク】 今回のシングルは全体的に歌詞がすごくいいと思います!

――3曲目の「Greedy Man」は、ヨンファさん作のこれまた異なるテイストのロックサウンドになっていますね。

【ヨンファ】 この曲は、楽しい愛の歌といいますか、愛にこだわる内容にしてみました。
【ジョンヒョン】 毎回シングルではバリエーションに富んだ楽曲を収録していますが、今回はとくに違うタイプの3曲なので、CNBLIEを感じてもらえると思います。




【ジョンシン】 台湾、シンガポールとまわって、日本の活動が終わった後、タイと香港に行くんですけど、どの国もみなさん熱狂的に迎えてくださるので、毎回行くのが楽しみですし、僕たちのテンションもあがって、すごくいいライブができているなと感じます。


【ミンヒョク】 日本ではZeppツアーで、久々のライブハウス公演になるので、ファンのみなさんと距離が近いぶん、お互いの熱気も伝わりやすいので、すごく楽しみにしています!

――Zeppが大変なことになりそうですね。では、「Greedy Man」の“Greedy=欲”から、みなさんがとくに強い“欲”はなんだと思いますか?

【ヨンファ】 (即座に)睡眠欲(笑)。
【ジョンシン】 僕も!100%睡眠欲!!
【ジョンヒョン】 (睡眠欲は)メンバーのなかで僕が一番強いです(笑)。
【ミンヒョク】 僕も睡眠欲ですね。
【ヨンファ】 今は食べることよりも、寝るほうが大事です。
【ジョンヒョン】 何も考えずに寝るのが一番幸せ。


【ジョンシン】 僕はもともと寝るのが好きですから(笑)。


【ジョンヒョン】 あります、あります(笑)。音楽をかけながら寝ようとすると、ずっと聞いてしまって寝れなくなってしまうので、常に無音状態にしています。


【ジョンヒョン】 ないですね~。実際にそういう夢を見たことはないんですけど、見たくないですね。
【ヨンファ】 僕は音楽に関する夢自体、あまり見たことないですね。
【ミンヒョク】 僕も。
【ジョンシン】 僕はほとんど覚えてないですね(笑)。
【ヨンファ】 でも、悪夢は見たいかも(笑)。



【ヨンファ】 いやいや、それは見たくないです(苦笑)。お化けが出てきたり、現実に体験できないことを夢の中で体験して楽しみたいですね。
【ジョンヒョン】 でも、やっぱり僕は、睡眠欲よりも食欲かもしれないですね。あんまり量を食べるほうではないんですけど、美味しいものを食べると元気になります!

――では、最後に「Blind Love」では、主人公は別れてしまった相手をずっと想い続けていますが、みなさんは過去の恋愛を引きずる人?すぐに気持ちを切り替えられる人?

【ジョンヒョン】 それは相手によって違うと思います。
【ミンヒョク】 僕はいい思い出だけを覚えているようにします。


【ジョンヒョン】 でも、自然といい思い出だけを覚えていたら、悪い思い出は忘れてしまうと思います。そうじゃないですか?
【ヨンファ】 僕はすべて覚えています。むしろ忘れてしまう人が理解できないです(笑)。


【ヨンファ】 はい。常に思い出したり、覚えているわけではないですけど、いいこと悪いこと含めて、すべての経験が楽曲に生かされていると思います。
【ジョンシン】 僕はあんまり覚えているほうではないんですけど、印象的なこと、ものすごくうれしかったこと、逆にものすごく悲しかったことは覚えています。でも、そういった昔のことを思い出して懐かしむようなことは今はないですね。
【ジョンヒョン】 もちろん過去があっての今で、過去も大事だけれど、過去のなかに生きるのではなく、僕らは未来へ向かって突き進んでいるので!このシングルはもちろんですが、ワールドツアーを経てまたさらに成長したCNBLUEをみなさんにお見せしたいと思います。
【ミンヒョク】 みなさん、Zeppでのライブツアーを一緒に楽しみましょう!
【ヨンファ】 新たなCNBLUEをみなさんに感じてもらえるように頑張ります。
【ジョンシン】 カッコいいCNBLUEを音で表現します。ぜひ楽しみにしていてください!
