Born on September 15th, 1991; bassist; cut off his long hair in the middle of the Arena Tour which was become a headline. Even tough the long hair is better; personally I prefer short hair now.

Main Text

Last year, the first Arena Tour gathered around hundred thousands people, which is the most memorable stage for you?

The biggest stage at Saitama Super Arena, the passionate atmosphere was incredibly great. When the lights shine on us, we could not really see the audiences but when it turned off, I can see right in front up to the foremost audience’s seats. The most noticeable were the male audiences, there were not many but their respond was good. I could see it right away.

Do you have something necessary at the back stage?

Coffee and energy drink.

What word or Japanese phrase that will make you happy?

Handsome, probably because I did not hear this word much once I getting older so I should hear it more now. (Laugh)

Born June 28th, 1991, a drummer; last year participated in Japan – Korea friendly baseball match as part of Hallyu team, whacking baseball bat can reduces stress is not it? (Laugh) There are not a lot of batting centre at Korea so just finding a place need quite a bit effort. Even though I like baseball mostly I just watch the game. The most used Japanese word is “nothing special”, necessary thing at the back stage also nothing special. If it raining I like rain, if it sunny then I like the sun and so for snow, if happening snowy day, I like it too. It was quote from this interview.

Main Text

Which  was memorable the most during Arena Tour?

As the member who likes eating the most, food from all the places during tour is the most interesting. We had tebasaki at Nagoya, takoyaki at Osaka even though each place has their own specialties but as we were visiting many new places, experiencing something new is wonderful.

Who is among the audiences that you notice the most?

Since I am drummer so I sit at the back all the time and hardly to see the audiences but when the light was turn off I can see the light stick as if the stars on the night sky. I am happier about this than the other members. That is what I am thinking anyway. (Laugh)

What is your favorite Japanese word that you want to hear to make you happy?

“Kawaii” which is rarely used by male, since in Korea “Kawaii” seems to judge the other for not “man-like” so when I heard that word during performances I felt confuse… if (the fans) shout out “handsome” then I would be really happy.

What is your favorite perfume?

Dior Homme

Where will you go with your date?

Hmmm… since I am the type who does not like being annoyed, she can decide where to go (laugh). If I have to decide, then we can go to Jejudo in Korea. The reason is simply it easier rather than to go abroad. (Laugh)

How is your sleeping pose?

The other members said as if I am playing drum even when I am sleeping. May be I am performing during my sleeping time?

What if you are happening set up on the desert island?

Jungshin and me, the dongsaeng team, we will go to find something to eat, hyungs can do physical stuff, and all of us will survive.

[1] RASQ is kind of baked snack


the fnc010


‘In the end of the day, when I am about to sleep I have to do special treatment for my lips. My lip is very dry type so right before sleep I always applies moisturizer to keep the moisture lips. I use non perfume lip balm since I need it for treatment. Because of that I have no problem when I have to talk or perform on the stage.’


‘If take a look closely among the part of my body, the one who look stands out is eye. I have keen eyes! Of course the other parts are outstanding too (laugh). I used to hear people said that I have gentle eyes but once I get angry my eyes could be so scary. Fortunately, I am not the type of people who get angry easily so I think there is no chance to see my scary eyes.


‘At school I have a lot of friends; I used to close with many of my old teachers. I used to very serious person when it comes to do every assignment; I never made a scene, fussing or something, I am hardly remember I ever had fought with my schoolmates either. And I was really obedient kid so how it possible the teachers did not like me?’


Kang Minhyuk Interviewing Lee Jungshin

Good point of Lee Jungshin

I am a positive person.

What if you are happening to meet your ideal type on the street?

I just pass her by, even though I would be regretting later.

What if your crush likes Minhyuk?

I will just say, “I see”.

From woman point of view, what is Lee Jungshin’s charm?

My charm is humble.

Give a name for these two cats.

“Ciblue” and “Nyam Nyami”

If you are gifted to give ability and power to the cat, what kind of ability you want to give?

I want to give them a power to sweep away my fatigue.

Named one thing Lee Jungshin is better than cat.

I am bigger.

And named one thing Lee Jungshin is worse than cat.

I have no fur as much as the cat.

If you are not happening to be an entertainer, what might you do right now?

I do not know.

In the past, what do you think you are?

I was a frog prince.

If you have a sister to who you want to introduced her?

I will introduce her to nobody.

If you are happening to have   1.000.000 won, what did you want to do for the first time?

I will save all the cash.

You are happening to have a big debt, who do you think will loan you cash?

It seems will no body.

What did you think right now?

I want to eat samgyeopsal (pork belly), I want to eat meat, I want to have cat as my pet.

When you are eat samgyeopsal with Minhyuk and there only one piece left, what do you will do?

I will let Minhyuk to have it because he seems pretty miserable.

At this moment named three things that make you enthusiastic.

Named your childhood dream you want to make it reality nowadays.

  1. 1.      Compose a good song.
  2. 2.      Completing “My Daughter Seoyoung” finely.
  3. 3.      Buying car.

You already have a car, which place you want to visit the most?

I will go to Incheon because from there I can go anywhere. (Did he mean Incheon international airport?)

What things Kang SeungJae had given to Lee Jungshin?

He gave me experience.

 (For Lee Jungshin they are …)

Yonghwa is Yong’s dove.

Jonghyun is a poor elder brother.

Minhyuk is a sparrow.

CNBLUE is a pal.



‘Honestly, when every one said to me “everything will be okay”, that is a big burden to me.’

Since I am the last CNBLUE’s members who step up into acting field, I felt a lot of burden. Honestly, when everyone said “everything will be okay”, that is a big burden to me. At first, I thought acting is not my things, because surely, the whole thing is not as easy as they are talking about. Some news who came up with headline “Reaching the peak rating” make people start to gossip about and it make me deadly stressful.  My first target on my first drama is: “I have to do the best so that I will not screw up the whole set” and next thing I become ambitious and saying “I have to be able to act naturally” as my second target. I know up to this time I am lacking in many things but I make an effort to make it better little by little. In the beginning as idol I am not doing solo activities yet, it felt dreadful. The other members understand those feeling better than anybody else does and because of that I do feel thankful. All of them keep supporting me. I am really happy to have a chance to act together with many senior actors and actress. Especially Lee Boyoung noona because she is my ideal type, honestly even on my wildest dream I never been dreamt to act together in a drama like this!



‘I want to seek for the kind of music that makes many people want to listen and curious about it.’

I am recently challenging the acting field for the first time through drama “My Daughter Seoyoung” and the changes I have gone as an actor Lee Jungshin is also helping my musical activities a lot. Since this is my first time as an actor I told my self frequently that I am extremely low place (he means, his acting knowledge is still negligible). It is a kind of mind control. This mental attitude helps me while I am made myself to do better both as a singer and a bassist. Is not my challenging task and goal to be more and more suit for CNBLUE as a bassist? As for CNBLUE, while we are finding our own color, we want to search for the kind of music that makes people want to listen and curious about it and I want to challenge myself everyday and for a long time in the future as CNBLUE’s bassist.
