OSAKA 2nd Day

The set list almost the same of the first day show just added Let’s Go Crazy after Teardrops In The Rain and double encore, surprisingly
“Osaaakaaa!!!” Shouted Yonghwa on the opening show, Come On.
“Let’s go Osaka!!” Yelled Jonghyun at Get Away.
Tattoo, Hey You and Love played consecutively.
“Osaka, do you enjoying? Let’s be exciting ’till the end! Change the atmosphere right now, please listen to our ballad numbers.” Asked Yonghwa before Y,Why.
Here Jungshin changed into black 5 strings bass. During Feeling, Yonghwa played keyboard and as usual in his first part Jungshin always gazed at Yonghwa with arm crossed. Yonghwa counted for Jonghyun’s These Days singing.
“It’s also fun today, I always had something here, (on These Days), you all really cool!” Said Jonghyun while These Days ended. Jonghyun mentioned about London live and Yonghwa had set up head mic and said through it, “then, let’s be more exciting with our rock and I’m a good dancer.”
“Ahh yes, you’re good at dancing,” responded Jonghyun.
“Guys have a good night???” Party time had started by Yonghwa’s question. Have a Good Night followed by Wake Up where Yonghwa and Jonghyun repeated aerobic’s steps!
Blue Sky as always into the boysband time. The boys left their instruments. Honestly the other boys looked strange without instruments on their hands. Jonghyun did strangely small waved hand.

“Osaka is still takoyaki,” said Yonghwa when they’re preparing for ad-lib song.
“Takoyaki song,” added Jonghyun as he start to play some keys and Yonghwa thinking a while.
“Well then, the tittle is… Takotakotakoyaki sukiyanen.” Concluded Yonghwa and start singing.

* Takoyaki song*
Oh no ~
Live mae takoyaki tebeta
Oh~ mecha oushi
Itsumo Osaka dewa takoyaki
Live ga owatte nani wo taberu ka?
Yappari takoyaki
Takoyaki sukiyanen
Mecha sukiyanen
(Yonghwa sang in whisper)
Saikou tako tako takoyaki mecha sukiyanen
Oh, live ga owatte takoyaki tako say takoyaki, tako, tako, yappari osaka mecha sukiyanen
Oh, kyou wa takoyaki ga tabetai oh my god
tako, tako, takoyaki daisuki
Takoyaki mecha umai oh my god
(Yonghwa approached Minhyuk and asked him to sing after and Minhyuk sang: )
Takoyaki Jungshin wa niteiru
(Jungshin disguised himself as tako=octopus by his hands and made funny facial expression. Jonghyun roared with laughter when heard and saw that. Minhyuk stood up and together with Yonghwa, both of them approached Jungshin and rounding around him. Minhyuk even did rapping!)

Tako, tako, tako.
(Yonghwa continued)
Oh~ takoyaki arigato gozaimasu ~nagai~
Ad-lib kangaete nae
Jonghyun kept playing guitar even Yonghwa giving up on singing.
“You always played a good song.” Said Yonghwa to Jonghyun.
Actually Jonghyun also sang but quite short part, ‘takoyaki, takoyaki’ that’s all.
“How was Niigata song, a Koshihikari song.” Yonghwa went on asking Jonghyun.
“I don’t remember…. Ahh like this??” Jonghyun seemed remember and replayed the Koshihikari song’s key. Along side Jonghyun’s guitar Yonghwa sang ‘Koshi, koshi, koshihikari~’

*english trans*
I like takotakotakoyaki (Osaka dialect)
Oh no~
We were eaten takoyaki before live
It was tasty
Osaka is always takoyaki
What we will eat after live?
Still takoyaki
I like takoyaki
Tako, tako, takoyaki is the best
I like so much
Oh~ Takoyaki after live, say takoyaki, tako, tako, still at Osaka, I like so much
Oh~ today, I wanna eat takoyaki oh my god
I love tako tako takoyaki
It’s pretty tasty oh my god
Takoyaki is Jungshin twin
Tako, tako, takoyaki
Oh~ takoyaki thank you … Too long
I have no ad-lib anymore

When boysband time ended and they get back to the main stage, Jonghyun threw out many guitar pics.
“Quite fun, I’ve heard if Osaka people is hot, today is indeed hot!! Not the weather but all of you guys!!!” Said Jonghyun.
Yonghwa approached Jonghyun who still played his guitar but suddenly he reach out Yonghwa’s hand and hold it tightly and saying, “great! Osaka is amazing.”

Yonghwa danced through the runaway and Jonghyun followed his step on Love Girl. And again, Jungshin went down to the audiences floor, they looked quite enjoy themselves on each other part.
Kimio interval (again and over again,) Jonghyun took pictures, firstly, Yonghwa and Jungshin on the center from the main stage. Then Minhyuk joined in.

“Yonghwa, what do you feel? Is this a miracle?” Asked Jonghyun, he seemingly touched with the whole surrounding, he often rolled his eyes to enjoy the scene.
“I can’t explained,” replied Yonghwa.
“Guys, today we made a good live together, didn’t it? You’re great indeed! Please sing together, sang after me,” Asked Jonghyun then he sang first part Kimio a capella n Boices choir after him.
“Ahh great….” Said Jonghyun. As soon as Kimio ended they gather together and discussing something.
“We can’t win over you guys so we will sing but please sing it altogether with us!” Unfortunately staff already took their instruments off the stage.
“Staff are surprised!!” Surprised Yonghwa.
Jonghyun asked to the staff his accoustic guitar, while waiting for the Jonghyun’s guitar ready, Yongwha played his own guitar randomly. As wrote above, then Osaka second days concluded by as a special song who unlisted before.

*Author’s Note*
Boys parroted Japanese/Osaka gag but Hana can’t make up to find a way to translate and understand it by english reader (author too hard to understand it) so I omit.
Special thanks as always goes to Hana who did very good summaries and translating, especially in Takoyaki song which was quite long.

OSAKA 1st Day

Arena Tour Osaka first day was all about Jungshin’s new hair cut which surprise everyone (the author included) due to this the shortest hairdo Jungshin’s ever has since debuted and actually his long hair already became his signature.
For today’s the boys put more sticker tattoo than in the previous show.
Yonghwa wore red T-shirt and (as usual) he rolled up its sleeves, showed off his left shoulder and wrist tattoo.
Jonghyun put his tattoo on his right upper arm and left collarbone.
Minhyuk on right neck while Jungshin on left wrist.
This show too, Yonghwa danced so many times on his own ways. The amusing one was at the Have a Good Night, Yonghwa approached Jonghyun and asked to danced together. Jonghyun then followed Yonghwa’s steps strangely, still with playing his guitar and Yonghwa commented in laugh, “its looks like an aerobic steps!”

“Osaka I love you so,” said Yonghwa using Osaka dialect.
“Indeed.” Added Jonghyun still with Osaka dialect and he went on, “this stage is special for today only so you all quite lucky.”
“I cut of my hair,” said Jungsin.
“At first I saw Jungshin’s new hairdo at our Kakao, I thought he was Yonghwa.” Explained Minhyuk.
“I was shocked when I saw him, ” added Jonghyun.
“Actually I prefer to his previous one.” Commented Yonghwa.
“I was challenge for you guys.” Said Jungshin with bitter smile.
“Which one do you prefer guys, last or new one?” Yonghwa asked Boices.
Unfortunately many Boices prefer to the last one.
“Last one?? Ahh so sad…” Said Jungshin.
“Jungshin, you wasting yourself.” Commented Jonghyun and roared with laughter.

*Jungshin’s new hair cut song *
‘Yesterday I saw Jungshin’s new picture but I was surprise; because ohh he has changed his hairdo!? A little scary? Or cute? Cute isn’t it? Jungshin’s hair, Jungshin’s hair dadari didadadu.’ Then Yonghwa singing in whisper face to face with Jungshin. He looked embarrassed but Yonghwa kept on singing and even poked Jungshin’s chin. In the end Yonghwa asked Jungshin to sing.

Jungshin sang, ‘now days my hairdo twined with Yonghwa.’
‘Yes you are, why do you do?’ Replied Yonghwa. It was another scene tha both Jungshin and Yonghwa danced on their own way. Yonghwa rounded around and asked Minhyuk to sing.
Shockingly Minhyuk sang, ‘Jungshin’s hair didn’t look cool than before!’
Honestly Minhyuk and Jungshin look strange sat down without any instrument on their hand but mic, only Jonghyun had acoustic guitar to be played with Yonghwa’s ad-lib song.
“Thanks to all of you guys. Because of you, we’re able to stand in this stage.” Said Jonghyun.

“We had plenty individual activities recently but from now on we will keep on working hard to do our music. So just stand by and walk along with us.” Added Yonghwa.
During the last encore, Kimio, there was quite long pause, where Jonghyun took pictures with his own iPhone. He took Yonghwa and Boices picture.
“Aahhh cool, you are all so cool! We will playing here again tomorrow so it isn’t the last song. But please sing together with us.” Asked Jonghyun.
“Aahhh cool!” Surprise Yonghwa after choir of Kimio Jonghyun’s accapella part. Jonghyun took another selca right after Kimio ended.

*Author’s Note*

The venue began to dimmed altogether Come On intro and exploded of fireworks to start another show that night. The boys as usual wore rough clothes, Yonghwa’s red wine T-shirt which he rolled up its sleeves. Jonghyun wore dark printed T-shirt and he seemed not shaved that night with very short hair, Minhyuk’s white printed cute yellow character, he looked cute yet cool at the same time. Jungshin transform into Harajuku boys with black and white long sleeve T-shirt and old-school design short combined border legging.
Yonghwa seemingly excited right from the start of the show yet the other boys too.

Just Please present their rock live style and Yonghwa said, “Niigata let’s rock till the end!”
While Jonghyun asked to Jungshin, “are you ready?”
Again, Yonghwa shouted “I love Niigata” and danced on his way during Hey You.
“Do you know the next song?” then he asked Jonghyun’s Boices side to say ‘clap, clap, clap’ and Jungshin’s Boices side to say ‘love, love, love’ he even taught how to sing rap percussion. In the middle of the song Yonghwa approached Jonghyun and the exchanging wiped their chin’s sweat out!

And as usual they introduced themselves. Yonghwa said, “hello,” while another member said altogether, “we are CNBLUE!”
Yonghwa went on saying, “this is the third time we are visit Niigata.”
“I’m flew alone to get here, ” said Jungshin.
And Jonghyun simply asking Boices, “guys, do you enjoying the show?”
Repliying Boices answer of Jonghyun’s question, Yonghwa said, “you do? But now we will change the atmosphere.”
It was then, Y,Why led the changing. Jonghyun guitar solo brought another scene of CNBLUE.

Niigata to be the first step for Yonghwa played piano for Feeling and These Days. During first verse of  Feeling, while Jonghyun and Minhyuk busying themselves, there only Jungshin who watched Yonghwa fully attention with arms crossed.
“Ahh what a nice song.” said Jonghyun as soon as they finish sang it.
“Jonghyun, your song is outstanding.” Commented Minhyuk.
“Thanks. This is our first time played These Days, how was your feeling? Good? I’m happy.” Said Jonghyun.
“Yonghwa’s piano was incredible too.” Said Minhyuk praising Yonghwa.
Again, they mentioned about London live to start the party time which was led by Have a Good Night. Jungshin shown off his modelling charm and together with Yonghwa he shouted ‘Niigata!’ Yonghwa approached Jonghyun and both of them danced together with Jonghyun still playing his guitar.

Yonghwa shouted “hashire!!” (same like make some noise). Yonghwa and Jungshin moved to reach the runaway while Jonghyun struggle with his guitar electrical code. Jonghyun had tried to come to Jungshin’s side but his code just to short to be hold and running around the stage. He try to pulled it off but almost in vain. Giving up on that, he said using Jungshin’s mic stand instead, ” guys from now on, lets rocking more, are you ready?!?”

Yonghwa came down to the runaway while sang No More with head mic and Jungshin even went down to the audiences floor causing Boices rushed around him yet he kept playing his bass.
Heating off the venue was Blue Sky, boys left their instruments and turn to be like real vocal group. In Blue Sky, every each of them had solo part and their brotherhood shown when Yonghwa and Jonghyun encouraging Jungshin in his solo by sang as backing vocal.
“Thank you,” said Jungshin as they finished sing the song.
“It was fun,” commented Yonghwa.
“But embarrassing,” said Jonghyun, then said to Yonghwa, “keep on running now.”
Four of them sat on the chair at the center stage while discuss about ad-lib song.

“We were thinking how to use this center and runaway stage. Finally it’s the one who occurring. I guess this will be the first and the last, so, guys you’re lucky ’cause it feels embarrassing to sing a song without instrument.” Explanied Jonghyun.
“My today’s theme is fashionista,” said Jungshin.
“Well, you’re in chief.” Replied Yonghwa.
“Jungshin, you embarrassed, don’t you?” Asked Jonghyun.
“What’s Niigata local cuisine?” Asked Yonghwa.
“Koshihikari,” replied Jonghyun.
“We went to onsen and ate Onsen tamago.” Yonghwa told what the had done during off show.
“Envious!!” Responded Jungshin. He was the one who left behind due to his drama filming.

“We were sung Hitsumabushi and Tebasaki song at Nagoya, so today is a Koshihikari song.” Said Yonghwa. Actually, Yonghwa made mistake when mentioned Koshihikari and said Hisashiburi (means Long time no see) instead. And Jungshin made it as a reason to teased Yonghwa so many times.

Yonghwa wandering around the center stage with Jonghyun’s acoustic guitar sound only.

‘Niigata, there are onsen, ooh I love but I like the most koshi, koshi, koshihikari. CNBLUE loves the most it still ko, ko, koshi, koshihikari.’
“Minhyuk, what’s your favourite?” Asked Yonghwa.
Then with a little embarrassing Minhyuk sang, ‘Me too, I love koshihikari.’
They were continue the idol session by sang Teardrops In The Rain.

Jonghyun and Minhyuk quite fun and enjoying themselves during Voice while there another ‘monkey’ on the stage, it was Jungshin. He running around the runaway without even losing energy! He sang With Me chorus part well and Jonghyun guitar’s rearranged a little bit.
“Oh what an amazing day today! I was fascinated by you all responses. You all was the reason why we’re be here today. I wanna keep making a good live together with you guys. Then let’s do it!” Said Jonghyun.
“We wanna keep playing music!” Added Yonghwa.
“We were quite busy recently but that’s okay. I prefer to the busy days though. We’re still young so we don’t wanna stay in one direction only. 20 years, 30 years even on the next 40 years we’ll keep playing music.” Jonghyun shared his dearly wish.
“It’s love chu-nyu,” said Jungshin parroted Japanesse gag with kissing the mic.
“Today is exactly 3 years since I have debuted already, lucky me! Then gonna rock again!!!” Shouted Yonghwa.
Where You Are started by Minhyuk’s spinned drumstick and again Jonghyun’s tapping play rearranged a little. Jungshin took the lead who asked Boices to say ‘Ho…!’ on On Time with too much distortion effect in intro. Jungshin’s rapping part as always was indeed powerful. Jonghyun also jumped.
“Do you enjoying?” Asked Yonghwa to Jonghyun who looked too excited.
“Not enough yet,” replied Jonghyun. Yonghwa run to the runaway and sang Love Girl at the center stage while Jungshin’s chopper solo was really cool.

Yonghwa and Jonghyun played guitar side by side at Love Revolution.
“Ahh time flew fastly, I’m really happy today. You’re all great indeed so we will come again in some near time.” Promised Jonghyun. And he went on, “from now on let’s make plenty good lives! Please sing along with me.”
And Niigata Tokki Messe live ended up with chaotic drum bass and both guitar of Kimio while Boices choir for its chorus.


  • Koshihikari:
    Often called sushi rice, koshihikari is a short grain rice produced by the milling of specially cultivated koshihikari paddies. The flavour is slightly sweet and the grain has an off-white colour. Commonly used for making sushi, the texture of this type of rice is soft, and the glycaemic index is relatively low in comparison to other varieties of rice, as Koshihikari rice has a high amount of resistant starch meaning it’s broken down slowly in the body raising blood sugar levels slowly.

*Author”s Note*

I do feel like writing a novel when I typed this down cause it’s indeed along article. Big thanks, hug and kiss to Hana who did really great job in translating and summarizing who almost perfect to describe what had happen that night. Professional one is always different 🙂 Anyway, it was no surprise cause you focus on your notes rather than enjoying the show, CNBLUE’s music is too noisy for your ears.
