I have matured thought so I can talk well with Yonghwa hyung.
He is funny!
Actually he has childish side, frolic/playful, so I wonder if he would be tired.

CNBLUE Shares Thoughts on FT Island

Idol band CNBLUE opened up about family band FT Island.

CNBLUE debuted in 2010 as a four-member band while FT Island debuted in 2007 as a five-member band. Both groups are continuously fighting against a negative stereotyping of an idol band at the crossroads between an idol and a band.

First, CNBLUE member Lee Jonghyun called FT Island a doubtlessly skilled band. “I am always impressed at their concert,” he said. “They are more experienced than us so it’d be weird for them to not to do well. As a family member, it’s heartbreaking to see FT Island get underestimated.”

Kang Minhyuk added, “I felt that they’ve done a lot more concerts than us and there’s a lot to learn from them.”

And Jung Yonghwa said, “We are after a completely different music style but we enjoy each other’s performance. FT Island have the features that we don’t have. There are many things we can relate because we are a family and a band.”

Then Yonghwa compared himself to FT Island’s main vocalist Lee Hongki.105biat


“Hongki’s greatest advantage is that he can run around without carrying an instrument,” he said. “I like that he gives off so much energy. He’s really fit and doesn’t get exhausted. I guess you can call him a lazy genius? He is really gifted and I get jealous whenever he sings a passionate ballad or screaming songs. I, on the other hand, prefer rhythmic songs.”

Yonghwa also commented on their different singing style.

“We often talk about which song would be better for who,” he said.

Yonghwa continued, “FT Island and we have different formats to begin with. FT Island are better at jumping with the audience and relate to the crowd. But we are at our best when four of us are united on the stage. So it’s better for us to stay together instead of running around the stage.”

So can we look forward to FT Island and CNBLUE’s joint performance?

Lee Jonghyun: “We tried to do it once last year but it didn’t work out.  It’s amazing how we become friends with our counter-parts and talk to each other often. We plan on performing together soon.”

CNBLUE’s Yonghwa reveals TVXQ’s Yunho asked him for a song

promotional picts13

CNBLUE‘s Yonghwa revealed that TVXQ‘s Yunho asked him for a self-composed song.

For the first time since CNBLUE’s debut, a song written and composed by Yonghwa has been used as their title track. His agency FNC Entertainment acknowledged his talent by making “I’m Sorry” the title track for their album ‘Re:Blue‘, and his song is proving its worth by ranking in the top five on various online music charts.

Yonghwa has even created songs for his juniors Juniel and AOA, and after concluding his promotions last year, he focused his attention on songwriting. Yonghwa confessed, “I felt the pain of composing for the first time.

Now that he has become an acknowledged songwriter, many artists are coming up to him and asking if they can have one of his songs. Even seniors have come up to him to ask for a song, and Yonghwa shared about that instance, explaining, “At an award ceremony last year, I met TVXQ’s Yunho, and he asked me, ‘Can you write a song that will be included in our 10-year anniversary album?’ ZE:A‘s Kwanghee has also made a similar request.

The number of people asking Yonghwa for songs has increased, and he appreciates the attention, but he is hesitant to give his songs to an artist other than CNBLUE. He explained, “I felt really good when I heard that I have been receiving many requests to write songs, but I don’t feel comfortable about participating in other artists’ albums yet.

He also shared his ambition on writing different genres, stating, “When I wrote songs for my juniors, it was fun making songs from different genres like dance and ballad. I want to create a variety of songs.
