CN Blue Takes Over Singapore with World Tour

CN Blue held its successful first exclusive concert in Singapore.

The second performance of the 2013 CN Blue World Tour – Blue Moon was held on April 13 in Singapore.

The band, which appeared onstage amidst blue lights, immediately started off on a string of powerful songs such as Where You Are, Get Away and One Time, getting the 6,500 fans in the venue to jump along with them.

Whenever songs from the band′s most recent album Re:Blue, which is also highly popular in the country, started playing, the audience would sing along at the top of their lungs. They also cheered for the performances of I′m Sorry, Coffee Shop, Man Like Me and Lalala.

Jung Yong Hwa and Lee Jong Hyun especially sang a surprise song to express their thanks toward their fans in Singapore. While Lee Jong Hyun played the guitar, Jung Yong Hwa sang improv, “I will remember tonight. Thank you for waiting. Tonight is very special.”

Kang Min Hyuk and Lee Jung Shin also expressed their thanks in English.

Fans expressed their thanks in return with a variety of events. They turned on their cellphone lights when the song Love Light started playing, and as soon as the band finished performing Love they followed Jung Yong Hwa′s lead and swayed like waves. For the last song, Try Again, Smile Again, they held up signs reading ′We missed you′ in Korean.

CNBlue Members Name Ideal Types But Get Stonewalled by a Question

CNBlue Members Name Ideal Types But Get Stonewalled by a Question

Four-member pop-rock band CNBlue named their ideal types but were left speechless with a question about girls. Girl groups, in particular. The band were guests on MBC’s “Section TV” on April 14 for its “Starting” segment.

After interactions with students for the segment, guitarist and vocalists Jung Yong Hwa and Lee Jong Hyun, drummer Kang Min Hyuk and bassist Lee Jung Shin sat down for an interview, with questions raised from the students themselves.

The members revealed that when they are together, they do talk about women, like how males usually are. The host then asked them to name their ideal types. Lee Jung Shin’s answer was Lee Bo Young, with whom he acted in the weekend drama “My Daughter Seo Young.” The bassist said, “I think it’s because she’s not very typically just feminine. That’s her charm.”

Lee Jong Hyun named A-list actress Jeon Ji Hyun for “everything” she is, while Jung Yong Hwa’s was champion ice skater Kim Yuna. Jung Yong Hwa said, “She has overflowing charisma on ice. She looks good.”

For his part, Kang Min Hyuk did not put a name to his ideal type, but someone “bright and pleasant.”

However, a question that stumped the CNBlue members was “Who is your closest girl group?” The members all stayed silent and the only answer was Kang Min Hyuk’s sigh.

Meanwhile, CNBlue has completed the second leg of its “Blue Moon World Tour” in Singapore on April 13, which will continue on to Bangkok for the next stop in early May. The band is set to release their fifth major Japan single “Blind Love” on April 24.

A rockin’ good time with CNBLUE


They rocked it out in a sea of blue at their first solo concert in Singapore.

Kpop rock band CNBLUE charmed the 8000-strong crowd at the Singapore Indoor Stadium last night (13 Apr) with an electrifying performance, which we could say is one of the best Kpop gig so far this year!

Arriving in Singapore for the second stop of their “CNBLUE Blue Moon World Tour” concert, the quartet, consisting of Yonghwa, Jonghyun, Minhyuk and Jungshin, was in high spirits, and served out lots of fan service, including flying kisses from leader Yonghwa and sweet talk from all the other members.

The members took great effort to speak in English, albeit simple ones like “I love Singapore!”, “I want to be back!”, “You are the best!”. Drummer Minhyuk and bassist Jungshin even peppered their talks with Singlish, in all attempt to add an intimate touch to the concert – and that got fans screaming their lungs off the roof.

We are not exaggerating, but the atmosphere at the concert was tremendously amazing, thanks to the BOICEs (the affectionate name CNBLUE fans are known as).

CNBLUE brought the house down with a set of 23 songs, including their hit numbers “I’m A Loner”, “I’m Sorry”, “Hey You”, “LaLaLa” and “Intuition”.

Just 30-minutes into the show, Yonghwa was perspiring profusely on stage, and his hair in quite a mess. He pointed to his hair, and asked: “Is my hairstyle ok?” Fans did not mind that at all, and it was the performances of the night that really matter.

Yonghwa also showed us the comedic side of himself, revealing cute dance moves in between sets, and mimicking the voice of Homer Simpson, as he held on to the Simpson plush toys given by fans.

CNBLUE simply nailed it at their first full-fledged concert here, and the wait was worth it.

Jung Yong Hwa Gifts School Song to CN Blue School in Africa

As if supporting a school wasn’t enough, CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa used his talents to present a school song for the students.

On April 14, MBC’s Section TV interviewed CN Blue, who talked about the school in Africa that the group is currently supporting financially, using proceeds and donations received from CN Blue’s world tour.

The first CN Blue School in Burkina Faso was completed in 2012 and the members have continuously supported the school.

In addition to creating the school, Jung Yong Hwa also revealed that he wrote a song and gifted it to the school to use as a school song.

The CN Blue School has special programs and provides lunches for over 100 students.

With the 2013 CN Blue World Tour – Blue Moon, CN Blue expressed its desires to build a second school soon.
