Release Event 5th Single Blind Love Special was held on 27th April at Nikkei Hall, Tokyo. This was special event that only 500 fans were invited there. In the venue who looked like a live house.
Fan’s handclap made a warm atmosphere
After 3:00 pm, the light in the venue was start to shine on, it started with Yonghwa’s guitar play and “Let’s start!” The first song was “Where you are”. Fans sang it with them in the red light and it made the atmosphere high. After they said “Hello everyone, we are CNBLUE”, they looked around.
Yonghwa: “We’re happy to hold such a small stage after a long time!”
Jungshin: “Very lucky, you are.”
Yonghwa: “We can see all your face, today!”
Jungshin: “Yes, we can.”
On the previous event, they had live in front of 5000 fans (5000 per show and they had held twice a day so in total there 10000 audiences) at Tokyo Kokusai Forum Hall A. However, fans who had been invited on that day is 500 people, it is one-tenth. This 500 people had a very special time about an hour. These fans’s handclap made a warm atmosphere in “I’m sorry” and “Kimio”
Jonghyun: “I always think everybody is very good singer.”
Minhyuk: “We also played ‘Kimio’ with acoustic Ver. On yesterday’s fan meeting though, these have a different charm.”
Yonghwa: “We are going to show you different set list from yesterday. We played and sang Korean songs yesterday but we are playing lots of Japanese songs today.”
Then they showed dynamic playing on “Time is over”, Yonghwa screamed “Everybody In My Head~~” and “In My Head” was played which is their major debut song in Japan. The last song was “Blind Love” that was released 24th April.
“This is the most important song for today’s event. Yesterday we played this song first but today are a release event for this song, so we put it into the last song. Did everybody listen to this song already? Did you memorize the lyric? Let’s sing together.” Yonghwa said.
Yonghwa had sung with his powerful voice in another song but he used his tender voice such as Jonghyun’s in this song. Other members expressed their own feeling with their instrument, these made the deep music.
We can hear their breathing directly— Special space for limited 500 people
After the live, they had a talk time & lottery for gifting time. They appeared again with “Blind Love” as back sound music. When Jungshin started to sing “Blind Love”, fans followed him in chorus. Jonghyun saw that and said “this is a good song, isn’t it?” with his big smile.
Yonghwa: “Once I felt 500 people are a lot for us, but now I heard 500 people are lucky fans. I’m very happy to hear that.”
Minhyuk: “Everybody can see my face well; it is happiest thing for me.”
Jonghyun: “We can see all fans’ faces, so we have to do our best.”
And then they talked about their day-off.
Jungshin: “We went to shopping and ate something without a manager.”
Minhyuk: “I ate Isaki (The name f fish) Sashimi for the first time with Jungshin. I like Tuna Sashimi too but Isaki was very delicious. I like fish more than meat.”
Jungshin: “I like Tuna Sashimi.”
Jonghyun: “I prefer meat. We ate ShabuShabu with Ponzu, It was excellent! It would become the popular item if there is Ponzu in Korea.”
Yonghwa: “I like Sukiyaki.”
Jonghyun: “Sukiyaki the best food in Japan for Yonghwa.”
Yonghwa: “But when I am starving, I cannot wait to be cooked.”
They told the secret story about the MV for “Blind Love
Yonghwa: “We did outside shoot; it was very windy and cold day. Only me who was shooting long time, but my scene was used a little only.”
Jungshin: “Because of you are the main characters, you should bear it.”
Yonghwa: “But because of it, I could make sad expression.”
Next, they handed fans an autographed poster as a gift, and they talked about ZEPP tour in Japan.
Jonghyun: “We go back to our first objective when we play at live house. We’ll able to see all fans’ faces as today.”
Jungshin: “I was happy to make a live stage together, today. We’ll meet at ZEPP tour again.”
Yonghwa: “I was happy to see your expression on live. Fans are most important for me! Let’s meet at ZEPP!”
Minhyuk: “It was a short time but it’s been a blast. We’ll meet at ZEPP tour on summer!”
At ZEPP, we’ll be supposed to feel their expression and breath. We are looking forward to see them grew up. Doubtless their ticket for ZEPP tour would be premium one in all the venues.
