This is your first documentary movie, do you feel some pressure?

[JH] At the first I felt some pressures. Because this is documentary movie, we thought it’s too fast, isn’t it? We even ever said “it will be better after this”, but because of its title is “NEVER STOP”, we think to make a film of that picture hereafter.

[JS] Recording of this movie has been done for now, but since this is documentary movie; I think it should shows our (almost) real appearance. Such as our situation in the back stage or the discussion after live performance, I think it is our very first time to appear that way to all of our fans. If you watch this movie, you will be able to know us very well.

[MH] In spite of me, at the beginning I felt a little pressure too. But when watching the whole clips, there nothing to be worried about. I think it is a good movie and I could enjoy watching it.

[YH] I thought at the first watching our plain (without make up) appearance, and the truth when we hit each other of our opinion, what if there are people who get confused? But, I rethink again, that shown such ‘naked’ appearance is good enough. Why I said like this, our life and way to think, because I think there is no opportunity to show (that ‘naked’ side) except we did interview like this. 

I think director has been edited your story out. Is there any surprising part or another unexpected one when you watched the completed clip by your selves?
[MH] I thought another unexpected one is a movie which pulls out a plenty of unknown and did not show things of CNBLUE before, and we thank fully to the director. It reflected after live performance, we discussed about part there was regret, and also when we become nervous when rehearsal. We felt worry, but I think is good we could show that circumstances.

The most very impressive part among the movies is when you discussed thoroughly with all of member after your performance in the Summer Sonic..  
[JH] Because it was live performance, it is better when there is a problem in many cases than no problem at all. Therefore, the growing on our live performance is extending our ability to cope when there was something, doesn’t it? 

And then, by doing like in Summer Sonic, do you think that it is enough for growing your band in the top?

[JH] Well, our discussion like in Summer Sonic, we do after live performance every where. When we did good live performance we will be happy, but when live performance left regret, the discussion must be longer. But whenever it does, it will take about 1 hour, sometimes only 30 minutes. But it depends on the situation. In the end, somebody will change the nature and the feeling. 
[MH] When we got a trouble in our live performance, we poured everything in our mind together, and then we will try our best on the next live performance, hope (to make up) for it. At that time we will tell everything we want to tell, after that us always being back as fellow close friend member, and then get meals, dabble out together.

 

But your cooperative life also could be watched in the movie too,
[JH] Because we are together for a long time, it has already being familiar. So, I don’t think to be alone.   

[MH] I also feel it will be greater if we are together then thinking to be alone.

[JS] If being alone, maybe will be better if stay in our room. Since we got to know in along time, and know that being together is great.  Therefore, being together and living hardly, it is not at all.

[YH]If you want to live alone, I think you can do it. Beside you will get some inconvenience, does spend the time together is better?

 

The bitter memory of your training in Japan..!?

oicon nvr stop3

And then, YongHwa’s bed that shown in the movie was very big, did you choose them by yourself?

[JS] The person who used to live there put them. Because it was rental, actually we use the provided one.
[YH] But, I like everything that big. (Laughing)

The movie is containing of your enjoyable day-to-day scene, but do all of you usually cook?

[JH] Occasionally.
[JS] If I find ingredients, I will make a soup and eat it.

[MH] I do it rarely.

[JH] Me, do not do it at all. (Laughing)

[YH] In this member there is nobody who preferences in cooking, isn’t it?

[JS] Cooking for life.

 What foods do make you happy?

[YH] Absolutely whatever my mom’s cook. 
[YH, MH, JS] Tenjanchige (Doenjang Jjigae = Korean Soybean Paste)!!!
[JH] At home, my mom is good in cooking. Therefore, she often cooks Ika Jjigae, Shikka for me.

[YH] But, whatever mom cooks is delicious. Even Ramen instant is delicious too.

What memory do you have when you did your training life in Japan?

[JH] I thought I’ll be dying. (Laughing). We did not have money and could not eat anything…… 
[JS] I looked forward to go and buy Gyuudon.
[MH]  Lying on the bunk bed was fun. Since there I wanted to sleep in the upper bunk.
[YH] Me too!!

[JH] But for me, sleep on upper bunk bed is hard enough. When I got up, I will hit my head (with the ceiling).

[JS] I knocked my head that much. 
[MH] I got in the bottom. JungShin-kun in the upper one.
[YH] I got in the bottom too.

Another one, do you have a memorial place in Japan?

[JH] In the downstairs of our training dorm, there was a Café, it is delicious. But, because its price is high, I could not go (to buy meal). 
[JS] Because in front of the training dorm is always under the construction, I wonder think when it will finish, when after debut I go there again and it was still in under construction.  Therefore, I want to see the finished place (Laughing).

This movie’s sub title is “NEVER STOP”, but you will not stop from now, and then what are your great efforts you want to do?

[JS] We do not think that we have left such a footprint, but CNBLUE was started in Korea, that case was great too. So, we think that much sense of responsibility also was born, and our opportunities become role model has come some more. If we looked back, we tried our best and started from now on we have to try our best too.

[JH] I believe CNBLUE will go on till forever. Because of that we try our best.

[YH] I think CNBLUE has left for footprint. And then from now I want us to continue for leaving our footprint (in the future).

[MH] I believe we all try our best for leaving our big footprint. We will launch our album in Korea in 2014; we’ll wrap up the tour too. But, I want to do the tour in the country where we never done before and I want more people in Japan who listen our songs.

CNBLUE will release their 2nd album in Japan ‘What Turns You On?’ on Aug 28th. They will be also released ‘Lady’ ahead of this album. In this summer, they have lots of live in Japan like Zepp tour and Summer Sonic. ‘Lady’ is a disco tune song that has a mature atmosphere, but it contradicts with their public image that is serious and good young man. Which is in fact their true figure?

Everyone says to us do not get a tattoo (Laugh)

—Before an interview, Yonghwa, you have got tanned, haven’t you?

Yonghwa: eh… why everyone asks me so …?  Actually since I play golf recently, I’ve tanned. I didn’t get it on purpose, so I wonder why everyone asks me so.

—Eh? You said you play golf, right?

Yonghwa: Yes I am. I think it is better to learn as early as possible.

—…Well, What is it for?

Yonghwa: Because there is an image that adult plays golf. And I heard that it is good for posture fixing. I take the lesson as possible as I can only when I have time. Recently the number of young people playing golf has grown in Korea.

—Oh, I see. By the way, I am asking about your new single ‘Lady’. Is this a song for Japan?

Yonghwa: No, it is not. We don’t stick to in which country we would release it. We have a stance that we offer a song when we made at the time to release. This time, I had composed another ballad song but it is not like for summer, so I chose ‘Lady’.

—This song has mature atmosphere and it has dance tune.

Minhyuk: A rhythm sounds like disco. I think our live performance is going to be excited with this song. I am also excited to play a drum.

—There is an image that disco is sleazy in Japan. But your Japanese fan has an image that CNBLUE is a good young man and serious rock band.

Jonghyun: It is true. Our image for fan is “GENTLEMAN”… Since everyone has such as an image, so we have to be so …

—Huh? Are you meaning that this is not true in fact?

Jonghyun: Oh, no, no (Laugh).  If we did bad things, our image would get damage even though there is such a good image for us. So inevitably conclude that we have to be a GENTLEMAN as an image that everyone have.

Yonghwa: An image of good young man and GENTLEMAN fit with our image (said it firmly).

Jonghyun: So we are looked at with such an image in Korea.

Jungshin: In fact, we are not outstripping the image.

Yonghwa: We are always (with a proud face) “serious people”.

—Huh? Is it true?

Yonghwa: Yes. Because the leader (=Yonghwa) is like that!!

Jungshin: (in low voices) Too much to say.

Yonghwa: (Glance at Jungshin).

Jungshin: (in low voices) oh, just a kidding.

—If you are so serious people, I think that the image of the disco is unexpected.

Yonghwa: Yes it is, that’s correct (admit openly, everyone laughed). So it goes like that. Since ‘Lady’ is the sexiest song we ever released, we get a disco image on stage.

Jonghyun: We do our best to get the atmosphere of disco, but when we walk off the stage once, we turn out to be serious people.

—Umm. You artfully dodge our question …

Jonghyun: No, no. Actually we are told that we are serious people from FNC staff and people who are close to us, not only by fans.

Yonghwa: So, I play golf.

Jonghyun: Members escape to some sports.

—Don’t you go a disco or night club in your free time?

Jonghyun: Totally not.

—Are you sure?

Jonghyun: We might think that we are telling you a lie (Laugh) but absolutely not.

—But you think you want to go there, don’t you?

Yonghwa: It is going to cost money …

Jonghyun: I think we wanted to go there when we were around 20 years old though; we have been so busy and couldn’t go. Even if we were here now, we have no idea what do we do… (Laugh) And since now we are doing KFHI (Korea Food for Hungry International), we want to be a good model for everyone.

—There is an image that CNBLUE = Serious people and good young man, in both of Korea and Japan. Do you think what a catalyst is?

Jonghyun: No idea.

—Is it FNC’s plan?

Jonghyun: No, it is not.

Yonghwa: It might be because we often wear a suit.

Jonghyun: Yes! It is it!

Yonghwa: Since we have worn a suit from the beginning, our image might be serious. Actually, when we wear a suit, we look so cool (Laugh)

Jonghyun: We didn’t have free time at all at the beginning of our debut. And now, even if we had it, we have no idea how to play because we have not been to play. So we do some sports.

—That’s why you play golf or muscle training.

Yonghwa: Well, I think public image is made by fans or everyone, not by us. Now, CNBLUE = Serious people and good young man, GENTLEMAN. It is okay for us now.

Jungshin: And people have an image for us the rock band that a tattoo does not match (Laugh). Everyone says to us do not get a tattoo.

Jonghyun: Not only tattoo, I had had three piercing holes in my ears but now I have never wear them.

—Even if you say so, in fact you might have lots of tattoos on your back (laugh)

All: No, no.

Yonghwa: But, kkk (awless smile). My back is absolutely full of tattoos.

—Wow, shows us!

Yonghwa: I am sorry. It is a secret between you and me. (*just kidding all (Laugh))

 

I thought that the impression when we listened to this song is important.

 PATi-PATi sept 13.5

—Well, can I hear about a song ‘Don’t Care’? What kind of theme did you make this song with?

Yonghwa: This is the song that I want people who think that oneself are alone to hear this song. Don’t worry because I have family and friends … I wrote such a message.

—You wrote this lyric by replacing the fans and you.

Yonghwa: Since I am in this position, I could write this lyric. We have ‘the fan’ that is kind of special position for us, not only family and friends. Because I have the special privilege which general people don’t have, the existence of the fans come out in my head naturally. We have not had such a song that was expressing directly the connection with the fan and us, I wanted to write about this connection.

—Can we ask you about the sound of this song? Why did you make this such as an acoustic sound?

Yonghwa: Since the original was so. About a guitar, we used acoustic guitar only but at the time of recording, Jonghyun put the electric guitar sounds.

—The bridge was played by the brass horns, it is very impressive.

Yonghwa: Most of the songs have rap or the guitar solo part after chorus, but this song has the brass horns. This is the point of this song.

Minhyuk: Since I love that part, I attached my mind about the tone of my drum when I recorded it. I listened to it many times; I thought the sounds that fit with this song’s atmosphere.

Yonghwa: This song is not fancy but I thought that the impression when we listened to this song is important. So as Minhyuk had said, we cared about even one tone of the drum.

— As a result, it turns out contrasting song from ‘Lady’ that has fancy and digital sounds.

Jonghyun: It seems to have a style like Europe or England.

Yonghwa: Actually, there are some points in this song. Since it has a violin tone in the bridge, we can feel Oriental atmosphere. Depends on a person who listen to it the impression would be different.

Jungshin: There may be the people thinking this song to be a sad song. The bass line is simple in this song. If ‘Lady’ has an atmosphere such as digital, ‘Don’t Care’ has acoustic sound. So I feel this one seems more “band sound”.

—‘Monday’ is a song that was made from Yonghwa’s delusion of his specialty?

Yonghwa: Yes it is. The office worker would feel happy on Friday and they would also feel hard on Sunday night, and then greet Monday morning. I imagined like that and wrote this lyric.

—Your world tour will be continued after Zepp tour in Japan. What do you look forward to?

Yonghwa: A dinner with staff after live. I look forward to eat local food.

—Do you drink?

Minhyuk: Since we are tired after a live.

Jungshin: Not too much drink.

Yonghwa: We only drink the first one glass.

—You are serious people even in such as situation.

Yonghwa: Sure!!

—Don’t you think you want to break down that image?

Yonghwa: More than 20 years, we are the same like this, so we can’t. We will stay like this now and in the future.

 

What is a color of CNBLUE’s personal plane?

 PATi-PATi sept 13.6

—You told us your epic plan that after you conquered the world in your world tour, you will buy your personal plane, and whenever you want to eat Sushi, you would come to Japan using that plane. If it came true, is the body of your plane blue?

Yonghwa: No, Black!

—Eh? Why?

Yonghwa: Because the spots are not easy to notice. (Everyone laughs) The inside makes black not to become dirty.

Jungshin: But If it was all back, it would be hard to see by people, isn’t it?

Yonghwa: It is okay because I make it highlighted block!

—When this plan would become real?

Yonghwa: Since this time’s world tour is our first time one, it might be around next world tour (Laugh)

CNBLUE BLUE MOON WORLD TOUR on Malaysian News

CNBLUE BLUE MOON WORLD TOUR on Malaysian News

CNBLUE Return To Kuala Lumpur

Rough Trans

CNBLUE had ever visited Kuala Lumpur in early of this year, popular band from Korea CNBLUE return once more time for their solo concert on Saturday; their first visit was for Golden Disk award last January.

CNBLUE Blue Moon World Tour who held in Merdeka Stadium (it’s a mistake, because BM Malaysia was held at Stadium Nagara) attended by almost 10.000 audiences, not only in Kuala Lumpur but their World Tour had visited Philiphina, Hongkong, Singapore and Australia.

Yonghwa: ‘We have a lot of planning regarding world tour and we will focus on that matter. After the world tour ended we will start to make new song and release a new album.’

Establish at 2009, the rock band that consist of Jung Yonghwa, Lee Jonghyun, Lee Jungshin and Kang Minhyuk still consider keeping playing rock genre (for their music).

Yonghwa: ‘We want to keep our identity still, but we are also wanted to try to play the pure rock genre. But for now we want to focus on commercials music to represent our music.’

Inspired by UK’s band OASIS, Yonghwa confesses that he composed song according to his own feeling at that time and his surrounding.

Yonghwa: ‘When I’m happy, I’ll write it down to the lyric. Sometimes I have inspiration when I’m about to go to bed. So its really depending on my situation (or surrounding).’

‘In one song could have different feeling when we listen to in from CD and when we sing it on live. I feel the feeling is different from our CD sound.’

CNBLUE latest song’s, I’m sorry, not only became hit in Korea but also reached high peak in Japan.

Yonghwa: ‘In this album there single entitle ‘Coffee Shop’, I had inspiration when I was at coffee shop. ‘Naran Namja’ (A Guy Like Me) inspired by a phrase on the internet. As well as ‘I’m Sorry’ that telling about a guy who expressed his feeling after he broke up and how he treats his memories (about his relationship before).’

CNBLUE is now busy to promote their Japanese album entitle ‘One More Time.’ (there mistake here, CNBLUE’s latest Japanese album is entitled ‘What Turns You On’ and ‘One More Time’ is the title track for ‘What Turns You On’)

*Note: I’m Indonesian not Malaysian and Malaysian language is slightly different with bahasa, so please forgive me if I misstrans*

Korean popular boy band CNBLUE finally made their second appearance in Malaysia after this year’s Golden Disc Award which was held in Malaysia too back then in January. The boys were welcomed by over 100 of fans who flooded the airport to meet them.

A press conference was held at Grand Hyatt Hotel a day before their Blue Moon World Tour in Malaysia. CNBLUE’s members entered the press conference room in high spirits. They greeted the press with “Apa Khabar” and introduced themselves in English before pursuing with a short Q&A session. With bubbly and friendly personality, CNBLUE’s members managed to make the press conference really lively and happening.

Check out the Q&A session during the press conference below!

MC: How do you feel about Malaysia so far? Probably the weather or the food.
A: The weather is just like Korea now and we are here for our very first, our very own concert in Malaysia so we have so much expectation.MC: Have you tasted the food yet?
MH: I would try ‘Satay’. I have not tried it yet before this. I like all the skewered type of food so satay will be the number one thing I would like to try.

MC: Yonghwa, you have written many tracks for CNBLUE, so where and when do inspiration happen when it comes to your song writing?
A: It’s not like I plan or anything, but these inspirations just come naturally. It depends on what type of music I listen to, so it really depends on the environment. Sometimes I get inspiration for the lyrics and sometimes I get inspiration for others.

MC: Jonghyun, you’re a judo goal medalist in your school, so can you take on a bad person when you’re in a top situation?
A: Well now I have a lot of security brothers around me, so I don’t think it’s necessary for me to take action.

MC: Jungshin, you are the youngest but also the tallest. So much so that you have also walked the runway as a model for some big fashion events. Will you get into disagreement with your team members? Will you go like “Hey, I am the tallest”?
JS: NO~ (in English)
MC: You’re a really nice person
JS: Thank you~
Q: Do you have any fashion advice for your teammates?
A: Well it’s not quite an advice but whenever we go, for example Japan, We gave some ideas to our stylists that I would like to wear something like this and like that.
MC: You guys are amazing; don’t you (press) think so?
Press: Yeah~
Yonghwa: Yeah I know~

MC: Minhyuk, you acted in Korea’s popular drama. Which is your first love? Singing or acting?
A: My first choice is always the band. That is always my priority.

[Questions from press]

Q: Your start evolving around this year. How do you describe your style?
Yonghwa: Appearance or fashion?
MC: Fashion
Yonghwa: Well thanks to our stylists, who style us nicely. But usually whatever we wear… ummm I will stop here (laughs)Q: Yonghwa and Jonghyun are successful singer song writers, so what about the maknaes (Minhyuk and Jungshin)
MH: Usually I take notes on the lyrical idea that I get time to time but we are still in the learning process and Yonghwa is teaching us really much but we usually edit songs together. So whenever we are doing work together I get to learn more. So by that time I reach their level, maybe we will have some songs written by ourselves here.

Q: What inspired the name BLUE MOON for your tour?
A: Blue moon only comes once in a while but you know sometimes these two moons appearing together called Blue Moon so since it’s gonna be our very first world tour, we want our tour to be very special so we name it Blue Moon

Q: In the next few days, you will be releasing your Japanese albums. Any plan to release Korean album near future?
A: We don’t write songs or make songs whenever we want to make a new album. We are always writing songs so when we are ready, and the right time comes then we will release our album. So every time constantly we are preparing for our new album. So I wouldn’t say that by this specific day we will release our album. We are always working on it. We hope it will release sooner too.

Q: How do you make sure your songs are different from other boy bands so that you’re CNBLUE.
A: Well, I don’t really have a clear definition of what is CNBLUE’s color for our music, but I guess our songs are very catchy and easy to sing along. Also, when you just hear our music, you can feel it’s CNBLUE’s song.

CNBLUE Interview on TV Station

CNBLUE Interview on TV Station

TV Station

Lee Jungshin (Bass)

 A food to survive in summer

Shaved Ice

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

Since I casted  in the drama in Korea, I really don’t have lots of private time. But when I get some time, I do walking to get refreshed  and listening music. Oh, I really love a chocolate milk recently! (Yonghwa said “No, Chocolate milk is mine!! *Yonghwa is chocolate milk lover and  that is common knowledge for fans). Well… That will be mine (laugh)

Kang Minhyuk (Drum)

—  A food to survive in summer

Loach pot

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

A radio control car. I play it with Yonghwa-hyeong and Jonghyun-hyeong at night. Even though it is radio control car, the speed can reach to 80 km/ph and can run on the glass or rough road. Only Jungshin doesn’t have it, he doesn’t want to do things same as everybody, even game.

Jung Yonghwa (Vocal and Guitar)

—  A food to survive in summer

Chicken soup (samgyetang)

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

I started to play golf. Because If I started it now, I think I can have a lead from the people who are in the same age. And I heard that it is better for getting a correct form. (He showed us the practice swing and received a rave by members.)

Lee Jonghyun (Vocal and guitar)

—  A food to survive summer

 Eel

—  What are you addicted to, recently?

Mixed martial arts. At the beginning, I like to watch and wanted to do it. Now I have been going to gym in Korea, I have got some bruise. (Jungshin said “Since you are very well to do it, you can turn out to a martial artist”). Oh,no, It is just a hobby!

 

This is the refreshing song perfect for live. 

— What about the song “Lady” ?

Yonghwa: I composed this song. This is the refreshing song that was mixed nostalgic and modern melody, and perfect for summer.

Jonghyun: The tempo is good for live!

— What about “Don’t Care” ?

Yonghwa: About “Don’t Care”, the melody is an acoustic, and I put the feeling of gratitude in this lyric.

Minhyuk: When I heard this song, I could relax. I want to hear it again and over again.

Yonghwa: About “Monday”, I made this song thinking of people who is office worker and students.

Jungshin: I empathize some phrase in this song. I think it is the song that has an interesting atmosphere.

— Now you have the world tour. Do you have  any interesting episode?

Jonghyun: It was a first time to have a live in Australia for us. We have been to Melbourne and Sydney though, we were happy to hear all ticket was sold out.

Jungshin: Even though there is a long distance between the Australian fans and us, they know us and came to our live. I thought it was awesome to expand the culture.

Minhyuk: As a memory of Australia, we have a funny episode (laugh). We went to eat Aussie beef steak though, the steak was served well-done. Because the staff heard from somewhere “Korean likes well-done steak ”. The Steak was a little bit firm for us, so we could only eat a little. We were so sorry .

Yonghwa: This was an expensive restaurant…(laugh)

Jungshin: We were very sorry even I remember that now. Well, If we could have our live in France, I want to eat a real and fresh baguette.

Yonghwa: Then does   that mean the baguette to eat any place other than France is not real? (laugh).

Jungshin: Oh, no! It is not meaning so.(laugh)

Jonghyun: Since we will have Zepp tour in Japan from this month, we are looking forward to go various areas in Japan. Especially, I hardly wait to take crab and beer in Hokkaido!

Jungshin: We were talking about the food so far, (laugh) Because it is so close between the fans and us in every Zepp venue, we can feel our feelings directly. We are certainly looking forward to having Zepp tour.

Yonghwa: We will also appear in Summer Sonic and Rock In Festival Japan!

Jonghyun: It is the year that we have lots of live in overseas including Japan. We are supposed to be cooler CNBLUE getting things one by one. We will do our best!

The episode of interview

We had an interview in a happy harmony. About a story that Jungshin doesn’t want to do things same as everybody, (Ref. Minhyuk’s column), Yonghwa said “Jungshin hate us~!?” , and got a hearty laugh by members. Jungshin denied it desperately ^^. And during talks about Minhyuk mumbled “I am Cancer” ( *Crab is KANI and Cancer is KANI-ZA in Japanese). But Nobody reacted to it (laugh). Minhyuk said in sadly “everybody ignored me again~” and then it cracked up members.  These 4 people are so close as a real brothers.

CNBLUE Interview on PATi PATi PRIME Volume 1, 2013 Issue

CNBLUE Interview on PATi PATi PRIME Volume 1, 2013 Issue

‘Groovy CNBLUE’ Feature summer single

PATi-PATi PRIME vol 1.9

CNBLUE will release a single just like the summer, ‘Lady’ on July 31st. About this ‘Groovy CNBLUE’ song that has disco atmosphere, we threw ‘Lady’ questions associated from the lyrics at them.

As a part of world tour, CNBLUE hold Zepp tour in Japan this summer. Moreover they will appearat summer festivals. They release a groovy dance tune ‘Lady’ as if we begin to dance in the summer live. A party at night, A lady is made a target, she is already mine… We set the song that is the sexiest in CNBLUE songs as a theme, probed into their private.

PATi-PATi PRIME vol 1.8

‘Lady’ is the word that fits the song the best.

– New song ‘Lady’, did you make this song with awareness that this is released in Japan?
Yonghwa Not especially. I’m not particular about where the song will be released. I release completed songs at release season.

– Were you aware of the single released in summer?
Yonghwa: Yes I was. In fact when I was writing a song like ballad, but it doesn’t suit summer, so I omitted it this time.

– What is a theme of ‘Lady’?
Yonghwa: When we go to summer festival, everyone dances and livens up the atmosphere, like club. I wrote with such a portrait. We will play at summer festivals this year, this song is like disco and we can feel coolness, so it’s just like a summer.

-What is the root of this title?
Yonghwa: ‘Lady’ is the word that fits the song the best.

– How do you feel after you play it?
Minhyuk: This song is fun. While playing we’re liven up because rhythm of this song is disco..
Jonghyun: In fact I didn’t make songs for a while after I made ‘Blind Love’ though I already start to make again. I felt something is lacking, so I was studying music. In the mean time, I left songs making to Yonghwa. Then he completed very good songs. When I listen to ‘Lady’ for the first time, I felt it’s groovy song. It has sexy atmosphere, too. It is like summer, isn’t it?
Yonghwa: Because this song is cool and fresh.
Jonghyun: I felt the disco song like it also suits summer. Rhythm is good, isn’t it?
Jungshin: Mwo?
3 members *except JS*: hahahahaha! ‘Mwo?’

– What, what is it?
Jungshin: I say ‘Mwo’ from a habit before I start to talk. I’m being made fun of it by members (wry smile)
Jonghyun: ‘Mwo’ is Korean, ‘Nani?’ in Japanese.
*’What?’
in English* (so bunny buin, lets follow him saying ‘mwo’ before start talking, kkk)

– I see (laugh) How do you feel after you play ‘Lady’, Jungshin?
Jungshin: Just like other members had said, I felt it’s just like summer. There were originally two versions about rhythm in this song. The other one is a little difficult.
Yonghwa: We felt guy while listening its one, but the playing is complicated.
Jungshin: And another one is now disco rhythm. This song became groovy because rhythm was decided this version. That’s why I’m looking forward to playing it at live.

Perspiring on the nose is the sign of ‘I love you’ (laugh)

– Well, I’ll ask you from lyrics of ‘Lady’. At first, what kind of ‘Lady’ that appears in front of you,  and you feel ‘I want you’?
Yonghwa: If she is so cute, I might think too much and feel much pressure (laugh) the best person is who agrees with each other. I guess Minhyuk’s thought is so, isn’t it?
Minhyuk: Yes. Most important thing is her personality. First when we’re directly meet, whether we can understand or not, it’s important. And I like a person who has pure eyes.
Jonghyun: Mine is feeling *his important point*
Yonghwa: It’s just a feeling~~ (suddenly started to sing ‘feeling’)
Jonghyun: If our feelings coincide, I can understand her without doing nothing.
Jungshin: I…… I like a person who is whiter than me.
Yonghwa: Such people are many! (laugh)
Jungshin: And a person who agrees with each other, and…
Jonghyun: Despite his appearance, he has lofty ideal. He is most particular of all.
Jungshin: Because I’ve not kept company with so many women, I become  too much.

– Then, if you meet a ‘Lady’ whom you felt ‘I want you’, how do you approach her?
Minhyuk: I catch her soon.
3 members: whew~~ (laugh) how manly!
Minhyuk: Oh why? I catch her as my girlfriend.
Yonghwa: I don’t understand him well. If I feel positive, I approach her, but if I don’t feel so, I don’t by the situation or atmosphere at that time.
Jonghyun: Feeling is important for me, so if I like her, she should like me. Special approach doesn’t need. It’s rare only one side like her, isn’t it?
Yonghwa: Really? I don’t think so~ (laugh)
Jungshin: I can’t approach someone at all.
Yonghwa: In case of Jungshin, his perspiring on the nose is the sign of ‘I love you’ (laugh) (All were staring at Jungshin) Look~, hahahaha, he is just sweating on his nose.
Jungshin: No I’m not! (laugh)
Minhyuk: Jungshin sweats on his nose only when he sees a picture of hot food.
Yonghwa: Human tells his mind with words, Jungshin can tell his mind with his nose without speaking! (All burst out laughing)
Jungshin: So, when I meet you, I’ll say ‘Annyunghaseyo~’ (covering his nose with his hand) from now on. (All laughing hard)
Yonghwa: Shall I buy any deodorant for nose? (laugh)
Jungshin: (laugh) By the way, my answer to the question is ‘I can’t’. I couldn’t talk with women well before. I can do it now as might be expected. But I guess I can’t do anything if there is a woman on my heart in front of me.
– So, who is the activist to woman all of you?
Jonghyun: I think such person is no one among us.

-Well, who changes a sexy man in the night, not on the stage?
Yonghwa: Firstly, a man doesn’t feel other man sexy, I don’t know it well.
Jungshin: We’re not sexy, only noisy men in the night. (LOLOLOL)

– Who is the sexiest on the stage?
Yonghwa: (immediately) No doubt, it’s me!
Minhyuk: Yes, he is. His action one by one,
Jonghyun: Sexy.
Yonghwa: Ah~ Sexy moving like that naturally appearance, hahaha (laugh) I usually hide all the points.
Jonghyun: hehehe (laugh) I see. I think everyone who works hard is sexy. But Jungshin is all in sweat when he plays bass hard, so this point is uncool (laugh)
Jungshin: What!?
Jonghyun: But okay. Jungshin hascute (smile)

-‘Lady’ is groovy music, do you sometimes go to a club and spend the ‘party’ night?
All: No, we don’t.
Jungshin: Not club, we dance in a house or car, don’t we?
Yonghwa: A car leaps because of it (laugh)
Minhyuk: We’re listen to music which makes us dance and we move.

-When you play ‘Lady’ at summer festivals or tours, members and audiences will become like a party.
Yonghwa: Let’s dance hard!

CNBLUE Interview on B-PASS Magazine September Issue

CNBLUE Interview on B-PASS Magazine September Issue

bps

 

The 6th single “Lady”, All 3 songs in the single are mainly written and composed by Yonghwa, it’s quite Yonghwa’s world! At first, about ‘Lady’, it was completed by fresh rock tune.

Yonghwa: I was conscious that it will be released on summer.

Minhyuk: We want to listen to lively rhythm in summer, don’t we? This song has speed and power like summer. I’m sure you can feel coolness.

Jonghyun: That’s why many rock festivals are held in summer. Summer of rock.
From the lyrics, I find a man who leads woman like ‘Follow me’. Is your experience reflected it?

Yonghwa: To write lyrics, we depend on our own experience at any rate. It may be contained a little, but not 100%.

So, may I catch this song as love song?

Yonghwa: Yes, but I didn’t take priority over love lyrics. The lyric was born beyond my thought I want to put suitable lyrics on melody.

Jungshin: I feel the lyrics fit the melody. How should I put it in, the speed of melody linked with the feeling dashing for a lady well? This is a fresh love song.

The expression ‘like summer’ appeared many times, what kind of situation do you feel well-matched if you listen to this song?

Yonghwa: (He was thinking with humming refrain) Listen in the beginning of a hot day!! I’m sure we forget the heat and become refreshing day!

Jonghyun: In the car. It’s the best to listen to it during driving. It sounds good we listen to it driving along the coast.

I’ve thought this song is just for driving. All of you have a driver’s license, don’t you?

Jungshin: Yes, we have. Recently, I drove to Hangan (A large river in Seoul) with Yonghwa hyung. We drove to the riverside, parked a car and took a walk. We went back to home as we drank coffee in a car. It’s in Seoul and near places for us, but I felt it was fun to drive with favorite music all the way. I’m glad if you listen to the songs in such a situation.

bps1

Er, did you drive, only by two men?

Yonghwa: (wry smile) Is it strange!? Well.. We’re often drive only with men.

In term of your age, it’s a little wasteful in my opinion… (laugh) It’s relieved for fans.

Jungshin: Don’t catch it suspicious!!

Of course (laugh). I just felt you’re close too much.

Jungshin: Oh, that point (laugh)

Also this MV expresses a sensation of a band well. What do you think when finishing the MV?

Yonghwa: Well, it is worked out a visual plan and even only playing scene is nice enough.

Minhyuk: Especially, the lighting is good. I’m satisfied with the point that visual and stimulating effect combines the speed of song and playing well.

Jungshin: We are putting on the costume that we put in on MV today. People who haven’t watched it yet, please check it out.

The second song ‘Don’t care’, it’s also written lyrics and composed by Yonghwa. The lyrics is your proud English, the contents are nice!

Yonghwa: I made this song around spring. I was conscious of melody and lyrics that suit an acoustic guitar with my message ‘Look out around you more’ for people who live busy alone every day. (so is it about why you so depressed at that time Yong?)

A little negative lyric on minor cord and the lyrics with strong will when cord changed, melody and lyrics linked well. I feel that lyrics were written in advance, but composing was the first, isn’t it?

Yonghwa: Yes it is. ‘Don’t care’ is revision ‘I’ from ‘I don’t care’; I think my own feeling appears ‘I’ in the lyrics. I send my messages to listeners or myself. A wave of my usual feeling may links with melody and lyrics.

Other members, what part do you feel sympathy in the lyrics?

Jonghyun: ‘You don’t know the beauty of life’, I think our ‘beautiful life’, and how to live is just now. Though we have hard time in our own way, I think its beautiful life to recognize that we are blessed now than to sigh over that only good things or only hard things happen.

Jungshin: Originally, the lyrics were like 1 kilometer, a few kilometers…

Jonghyun: What’s it?

Yonghwa: Ah, that’s episode (laugh). We were wondering that Jungshin and I write the lyrics together, but I quickly completed it by myself (laugh).

Jungshin: Hyung said ‘let’s write lyrics together’, we discussed many ideas. ‘This is interesting’ ‘How about it?’ like these. After that, I wrote as hard as I can. The distance between separated her and I am a few kilometers, I can’t see you anymore… maybe a theme like that, the title might be ‘3 kilometers’… I showed hyung my lyrics with full confident…, but he said ‘I already wrote’ (laugh). I was really shocked although my idea was good!(All members burst into laughing)

Yonghwa: Really, your idea was good. I’ll use it soon. (Yongie, as bunny buin here I’d really want to hear what Jungshin’s lyric is looked like, maybe pretty please?)

bps2

If it became lyrics, atmosphere is quite different.

Yonghwa: If his lyrics became this song’s lyrics, the second song also were love song.

Minhyuk: I prefer Yonghwa hyung’s lyrics though (laugh) But, new melody may be born based from Jungshin’s idea.

And the third song ‘Monday’ is also written lyrics and composed by Yonghwa. The title is Monday, but relaxed acoustic melody is comfortable as if we want to listen to it on Sunday. Meanwhile, I agree the idea of lyrics that everyone feels lazy in Monday morning, too.

Yonghwa: Thank you. The theme of this song is a dilemma frompeople who have to get up at the same time every day like a businessmen or students.

Theme is different, but in term of a dilemma in general public, it is a little similar with the idea of the 4th single ‘Robot’.

Yonghwa: Yes, a dilemma is deplored in Robot, but this time is milder.

Also, I like your sense that you use the keyword ‘time machine’ as a stuff of flight, not the scene talking about a dream (laugh)

Yonghwa: Such people can’t enjoy with all their hearts on Sunday night, so I guess they want to fly from Sunday night to Friday night by time machine.

By the way, today is Monday, what time did you get up?

All: about 10:30 am?

Minhyuk: in case of work, we often get up at six or eight like the lyrics. Especially in Japan.

So, could you get up early when you were student like the lyrics?

Yonghwa: I don’t remember how I get up back then. If I were told that return to the past, I can’t get up early like then every morning again! (He suddenly talked with Busan accent)

Which were you got up by, an alarm clock or your parents?

Yonghwa & Jungshin: By my mother.

3 members: Minhyuk, you had got up by yourself, hadn’t you?

Minhyuk: Yes, I set an alarm and tried to get up by myself. But only when I can’t get up, my mother came to get me up.

Jonghyun: I got up by myself because my parents went to work from early morning.

Jungshin: Jonghyun hyung regularly gets up even if his sleeping hours are short. He seems a light sleeping.

Jonghyun: I’m jealous with you because you can sleep anywhere.

Jungshin: Yeah, I seem to be able to sleep anywhere (laugh)

Yonghwa: You can sleep for hours deep like for 10 hours.

bps3

In term of your work, the day may be unrelated, if I dare to say, what day does you like the best?

Jungshin: Wednesday. Friday is said ‘burning Friday’, so there are many cars and people everywhere. People are full up from the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday. But, official workers work hard on Wednesday, so people are fewer crowds in the town.

Yonghwa: No, Monday is the least crowded. But I like Sunday! I’m free in Sunday night because I go home earlier for next day. Others care about next day, but I needn’t care.

Jonghyun: Although others have a day off, we sometimes can’t have it on Sunday. My friends and I don’t agree our day off.

Yonghwa: Another reason I like Sunday is because many favorite variety programs are broadcasted. Even if I don’t do anywhere, I really enjoy only watching TV on Sunday (with Busan accent)

Jonghyun: Even if I sleep because of tiredness, I wake up when TV program starts. (with Busan accent)

Minhyuk: I don’t like Monday and Friday morning because roads got choked. I like ordinary days when there aren’t so many people in the town.

As I see your lyrics, I feel your imagination is amazing. You write different themes by yourself for third parties. Especially, these days. Perhaps did you like reading when you were a child?

Yonghwa: I didn’t read so many books back then. I was told that read book by parents, if I finish reading a book; they gave me pocket money or allowed to go to play, so I kept it up. I’ve been not good at keeping sitting to do something.

Then, how was the imagination born?

Yonghwa: My parents like to make me learn several artistic things (with Busan accent). I went to learn what other children don’t learn, the instruments, arts, since I was young. So I always got A at art record. I think I was influenced by parents. Just it may be my nature!? (All: burst into laughing)

Jungshin: I know, hyung (laugh)

Now, finally summer tour. You’ll play 10 concerts at Zepp in 5 cities this year. Please tell us your enthusiasm.

Yonghwa: Talking of live, you may imagine speeding, but for a change this time, I suppose you can enjoy with relaxing. ‘Soft’ concept.

Minhyuk: We’ll tour with different construction from World tour’s and one in Japan. We wanted to change definitely.

Jungshin: The arena class venue and live house like Zepp, both have different attractions. Zepp have good acoustics and rapid feedback, so I like the size of Zepp. We will be able to show the contents that we couldn’t show or realize at arena tour last year. In a word, I guess fans and we will feel sympathy at the live.

Zepp tour is from the end of July to the middle of August, you have summer festival, and World tour starts from the end of August once again. Aren’t you confused with such busy schedule?

All: We got used to it.

Yonghwa: I can enjoy even on that situation. Before, we have done different activities in Korea and Japan, so I can switch in my head.

Jungshin: I feel this is one of the growths. It should be not easy to fit different contents of each tours. But we tried, we could. We had worries ‘can we do it?’ and we felt reality ‘If we do, we can do it’. We’ve repeated these and we come here.

For example, you play some songs both of Japan tour and world tour. Next to A is B in Japan tour, but next to A is C in world tour, in that case, have you ever nearly taken B for C?

Jungshin: I’m not that fool.

Jonghyun: Yes, I have.

Jungshin: Ah…. The fool is here (laugh) (Tom n Jerry xD)

Jonghyun: We sometimes change the set list during the tour, but I’ve forgotten it. In the new order, I had to start to play for first, but I forgot… I’ve experienced such thing once or twice. When I concentrate, I tend to make mistakes. I put set list in front of my foot, but I didn’t check it and only looking at guitar, so such accident happened. It may not happen now. I make sure to check.

Jungshin: We are busy with lives like now; I’m worried about other members’ condition more than mine. Especially, I’m worried about Yonghwa hyung’s throat state. Yonghwa and Jonghyun hyungs always work their bodies harder than me, so I’m sorry for that.

Yonghwa: I’m sorry!? We’re vocalist. So, sing instead of us, Jungshin. (laugh)

Jungshin: I just take back what I had said (laugh)

And you will appear at the festivals such as SUMMER SONIC for 2 consecutive weeks in August. You have festivals among the tour, how will you use them properly?

Yonghwa: We are working out a secret plan just now.

Minhyuk: I think each set list are important because of the difference that outdoor venue or indoor. We can show all of us at solo concerts, but we must show our music for short time at festivals, so we discuss a lot of ideas.

Jungshin: When we’re appeared at the festival in Niigata, I remember it was really fun outdoors. It was so hot, but audience is also hot, so we become hotter each other with music! There is such atmosphere. We will attack with the feeling like then at outdoor festival this year. Famous bands in the world such as Metallica, Linkin Park appear at Summer Sonic, so I’m looking forward to seeing them and I feel strange that the fact we’ll  compete with them. Honestly, I’m looking forward to it, but I’m uneasy that many audiences come or not.

Yonghwa: Jungshin, is it so important who play at the same time with us? We only concentrate our live. We play our live with all our hearts if there is even only person in front of us…. We will try with such minds. Honestly, I want many audiences to come (laugh) (gahh he’s so strange, he seems doesn’t agree with Jungshin’s opinion but in the end he agrees LOL)

bps4

That’s CNBLUE! Every band come with such minds, so we can enjoy the difference with solo live. I’m looking forward to it! By the way, you continue world tour lives by now; you’re the first Korean band that holds large scale world tour like this. Since you visit the world, did your visions have change?

Jonghyun: We’ve got a lot of ‘the first as Korean band’ since before. We feel ‘why so many?’, I appreciate the surrounding at first.

Jungshin: We dont feel superior to that; I wish we become a good model or aims for our junior bands.

Minhyuk: Of course it’s not only our efforts. I don’t know how much supports of staffs who give us such chances and fans who come to see us. Wherever; we don’t have conceit, I want our fans to see us and want to send other people. For it, I think it’s effective to visit many places and hold many lives.

You come here as third-years band since you’ve debuted, where will you go from now?

Yonghwa: I always say, our goal is to rank 1st at billboard chart. I feel we are getting closer and closer to it. I’ll keep saying until it’s realized.

Jungshin: There is a big senior band ‘YB’ in Korea. YB held tour in America a few years ago. I read a book about it. I felt an incentive from full their feelings. We want to try to tour in America like them someday!

Yonghwa: Our tour in only country is more times in Japan than in Korea, so we’ve studied many things in Japan. We can make the most of it surely, so we will be deeply moved if the day that we use our experiences in America comes!

CNBLUE will release their Japan 6th single “Lady” on July 31st. We let them talk about this single, which is like the summer and contains a title song that is a rock number like them (cnblue), and a world tour is going on now. And the theme of this column is the Korean ‘A test of courage’!

bps5

Special column “Scary experience”

– In hot summers, like this year, it’s standard to do a test of courage and feel fear. Have you ever done it?

Jonghyun: It’s named ‘Guts test’ (in comparison of Japanese, words are a bit different, but the meaning is almost the same). I did it when I was a student.

Yonghwa, Minhyuk, Jungshin: I’ve never done it.

Yonghwa: Do people usually do it during summer vacation? It isn’t an extracurricular lesson, is it? I’ve never done it.

Jonghyun: Oh? Have you never done it? I’ve done it once or twice.

– We usually do it during a school trip or training camp in summer.

Minhyuk: Ah~ But we’ve never done it.

Yonghwa: If we’re belonging to YMCA or Boy Scouts, we might experience it. But we’re generally don’t do it. Where did you do it?

Jonghyun: I did it with some friends at the temple on the hill in the night. It might be different from a test of courage; we did a game in who goes back the fastest after he touched the wall.

Jungshin: In Japan, do people always do it? How to do it?

bps6

– In Japan everyone has probably done it, I think. When we are students, a pair of both sexes walks on a dark mountain path. Also, after we become adults, we drive to a haunted place.

All: It sounds interesting~! We want to do it.

Jungshin: Shall we try to do it? At the place we’re going to for the tour, for example.

Yonghwa: Hey.. Do you think it’s fun for only men to do it? (laugh) If there were girls, we might shriek..

Minhyuk: If only men do it, they shout or cling to someone..

Jonghyun: We become sultrier. (laugh)

– So, in relation to scariness, do you watch horror movies? In Korea, many horror movies are released in summer, aren’t they?

Jonghyun: Yes, I like them. We sometimes watch a movie together, but I can’t go on watching it because of noise.

Yonghwa: Anyhow Jungshin is noisy. He always shouts at scary scenes, so I can’t concentrate on the movie. Moreover, I get more scared because of his shouting.

Minhyuk: He holds my knees.

Jonghyun: Minhyuk, you have a habit in which you muttering while watching a movie.

Yonghwa: Yeah, Minhyuk is the person I don’t want to watch a movie together with the most, haha.

While watching a movie, he talks to me about the expression of the story. What will happen next? or Look, look! And so on.

Jungshin: Yes, even watching a love story, he says the boy and the girl will surely become so.

Jonghyun: Yonghwa hyung watches a movie without saying any words. When we shout, he freezes alone (laugh).

bps7

– Then, who is the biggest coward out of all members?

Jonghyun: I once had no scary things at all. It was okay to ride most of the vehicles in an amusement park, such as a roller coaster and watch horror movies. But since I became a adult, they are getting scarier for me.

Yonghwa: As much as, you have a right youth’s mind now (laugh). I’m more scared for cockroaches than horror movies. But Jungshin can catch them very well! (All members bursted into laughing)

Jonghyun: I once was calm about cockroaches, but now I’m scared.

– Touring so much, you stayed in many hotels, not only in Japan, but in other countries. So… it happens.. Appeared or not. (About a ghost)

All: We don’t care about it!!

Minhyuk: I’ve never thought about it, if anything, I try not to not think about it.

Yonghwa: Because we’re men, we aren’t scared for such a thing. All members have never been tied down and have never experienced it.

Jonghyun: But we’re tired and fall asleep fast, so we may have no time to feel it.

Minhyuk: What we are most scared of, is the human, isn’t it?

Jungshin: Yes, ‘A usual person’ is the scariest.

Yonghwa: There are more scary experiences in reality after all. It’s the best if they don’t happen. We rather want to be excited than scared, in the summer!

As usual, many things I could found out from Japanese magazine, and their Q an A (s) were always surprising, beside their talked about the single is the most important one for me XD. Especially when they explained one by one about the detai, really love it , and of course Jungshin’s lyric!!! I cant wait to listen to it …..

 “Blind Love” was released in April among the hectic schedules. Medium tune love song is rare as a band, isn’t it?

Jungshin: At first, it was not a title song. But when I heard this song, it was very good. I think this song would be accepted by everybody not only fans (boice).

Jonghyun: We are a rock band, but I think even the people who not listen a Rock could accept this song. I am happy you to think that this is a good song when you heard this song.

Yonghwa: This song’s main vocal is me though; the key is not so high. I can sing even if I just get up (no need to mush stretching). (laugh)

Minhyuk: It is different from listening and playing. I could get into this song and raise my spirits with lighting, the response of audience and something like that. We are looking forward to the response for “Lady” that will be released on July 31st.

Do you have a favorite one in your song?

Jungshin: “In My Head”.  It is a major debut song in Japan.  Think it fits to fans of our age. Actually we are excited with this song in live.

Minhyuk: I can’t choose one! These are different from listening and playing. Also depends on my feeling at that time.

Jonghyun: “These Days” is the song that I made at age of high school and “Starlit night” is the song that I made at backstage in live. Since I have a memory and special feeling for each song, I can’t choose one.

Yonghwa: I am going to say that it is “I’m Sorry” that was released in this year. Because Korean Fans were waiting for it long time.

However you have each color, what is your motto for music?

Yonghwa: Not telling a lie, always working faithfully.

Jungshin: Wow, great (laugh) as for me, to enjoy everything. If I think it is a mandatory or at work, I can’t enjoy.

Minhyuk: (nodded) that’s right. If I am not enjoying, it gets found out eventually.

Jonghyun: Since we are human; no wonder that we have such a feeling. I also get stressed out when I don’t have enough time to practice due to hard schedule. But at that time, members help me out. We are growing up doing help to each other.

They continue their world tour. 6th single will be released in end of July and they will appear at “ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2013”, and “SUMMER SONIC 2013” in August. Don’t misses it!

CNBLUe Kang MInhyuk The FNC Magazine Volume 2 Interview, ‘Love’

CNBLUe Kang MInhyuk The FNC Magazine Volume 2 Interview, ‘Love’

001036

Kang Minhyuk <LOVE>

Romantic guy, it’s the most common expression to describe Minhyuk. Frankly, Minhyuk feels lonely. He talked about he wants to be in love. Especially on the warm and sunny day, it’s just like today, and he seems to feel like love even more. When we were talking about the love that he has always been dreaming, he looked like to fall in love already through his eyes. Now, let’s chat with Minhyuk who desires to have love, and this makes us dream about the lost romantic love. A man wants to be in love, Kang Minhyuk’s LOVE!

[Me Myself]

I used to play soccer, watch movies with friends in the past. If these activities are so-called leisure life, I rarely have these interests now. What I can do now is to chat with team members and do some (not outdoor) activities. Even more, I start looking for games which I can play alone.

[Off-day]

Basically, I spend most of my time by sleeping, then waking up and planning to do something, it is other people’s off-work time. It seems difficult for me to do anything. The situation is I stay at home more and more often as time gets too late. Originally, I planned to enjoy in doing something in my own private time, but it ended up with wasting my time. Time just flies when I was struggling to think what to do. No matter self-developing or simply enjoy something, whatever I could do to kill time. However, I couldn’t find that so-called “something” most of the time and ended up with nothing.

[Suddenly]

Not long ago, other team member’s schedules were pretty busy and I stayed at home alone. There was no one home except myself after I woke up. No one I could asked to eat together and no one I wanted to contact with, so I particularly missed those three (Yong Hwa, Jong Hyun, Jung Shin) during that period of time. I am that kind of person who can bear loneliness well. Normally, I don’t really feel lonely even though I am alone, but once I feel lonely, it’s an extraordinary loneliness.

[Travel]

Before debut and without practicing schedule, I had traveled alone many times. I often had camera with me and hang around. I planned one day before, and spent whole day from Insadong(인사동) to Namsan(남산), and then to Sky Park(하늘공원) hang around all by myself. I felt lonely sometimes with only by myself, but it’s even more interesting to have such leisure time. Though it’s fun to hang around by myself, it will be even better to go with my girlfriend in the future. The places where I have visited on that day are all popular for dating (Chuckle).

I travelled alone after debut as well. I went to the seaside. The weather was getting warmer in that winter and I thought it should be not too chilly, but it turned out that the sea wind was really strong. It was really cold then. Fortunately, the tide was rising on that day so I could see beautiful scenery view. I stayed there until sunset and I really had good time by myself. It felt like my soul was healed and refreshed, my body and my soul became light at that moment. If I were given a day-off, I want to pay for a visit to my friends. I want to travel as well, but I want to see the people I love even more. We can chat, take exercise together, or do any other things. It will be even better to have a date of course (Chuckle).

[Poison gas/ Spirit]

(Noelle: “Poison gas” is the meaning from Chinese translation. Personally my opinion for this term will be “Spirit” from the whole text.)

What’s the poison gas to me now? I really need poison gas as it seems that I have easy life, but actually I am not really live that way from my heart. I’m that kind of person without strong self-motivation, thus it’s better to have the so-called poison gas to make me move forward.

[Become comfortable]

I’m that kind of person will fall in love if I keep looking at someone. If I found a girl who becomes more comfortable to me, which seems to mean that I have had some feeling for her. To some extent, I may have some different feeling for a girl even at the first glance. Also, this kind of affection could happen to me from friendship when having chat. As time goes by, if I start to think about “Do I really like her?” which means I have fallen in love. Once I fall in love, I will find she is perfect in every part, and it seems to have the points of being a girlfriend. She might be looked more attractive from a certain behavior. I can’t clearly remember that because I have not been in a relationship for a long time.

[Courage]

I will appear around a girl for a long time if I like her, and I will take some actions after I feel some reactions from her. I want to confess my feeling by looking at her. I really want to do this and I also believe this is the right and better way to do. If I happen to meet my ideal type sitting in a coffee shop, I might approach to get to know her. I may possible sound her out because I don’t know her character. Of course, it needs to have the courage to fit the situation. I won’t even to try to approach another girl if I have a girlfriend or I have someone in my mind. So the situation will only happen when I am looking for someone to date, and I may have the courage to do so. I might try to confess at least 10 times if my confessions keep failing. However, I don’t have this kind of experience so far.

[Two pencils]

For the 1st time I had a feeling for someone was in 2nd grade. My confession was to put two pencils and a letter in that girl’s drawer at school. There was no meaning for those two pencils, but it’s a 2nd grade boy to express his feeling I think (Chuckle). I confessed myself just because I like her. I didn’t know what dating was as I was too young. I liked that girl for 3 years, but we didn’t meet alone. My first date with a girl was at 5th grade, and we bought couple necklaces. I really knew nothing at that age, and I always did things girl doesn’t like. Take purchasing the necklaces for examples, I should have chosen the design together with her, but when I was asked my opinions about the necklace, I replied “It seems all fine with me. You can pick whatever you like.” I guess that’s my 1st date.

[Together]

It will be great if we can be together from the moment I open eyes till I close eyes at night. In another word, spending all my time with her will be great. In the morning, I can drive her to work, and in the evening, I can pick her up and go for dinner and have a cup of coffee together. Even we don’t work together, but I would prefer we can do these tiny simple things in life together.

[Bad guy]

I will do everything for her if I fall in love with her. I don’t know what the bad guy is. I heard of thing, a girl won’t feel your charm if a guy devotes himself to much, but so far I have never tried to be a bad guy. What is my charm? It seems that I will do anything for the girl if I really like her. Am I good at taking care of someone? I think that’s because I like her. Now, I really want to be loved by someone. I am that kind of person who will devote much. It will be good to get same level of love in return.

[Marriage]

I would date someone and marry her if nothing special happen. However, I have changed my thought recently because marriage a matter lasting forever, doesn’t it. I would like to date with a girl and do more things together if I like her.

[99%]

Most of the time, I am not really a discerning person, but I have strong hunch when it comes to love, and basically the accuracy ratio is 99%. If I feel something is coming, there is 99% probability that it will happen. And if the feeling comes late, the accuracy ratio increases. However, it is always too late for me to do anything when I really feel something. To be honest, it’s not possible to be well-prepared in front of someone you love. In other words, the feeling of pain won’t be less even you anticipate to know something is going to happen. When it comes to separate from each other, you will only feel the same pain, no matter how early you have the bad hunch.  Therefore, whatever you do is in vain. On the contrary, I feel sad when having the bad hunch. It is not like that I am not able to understand, but a feeling of sadness.

[If she gets upset]

I will try my best to ease and comfort her. If she is angry at somebody else, and I am able to cool her down, I think this is one of my ability, isn’t it? It will be great if I can be such kind of person to her. It is reasonable that I should do my best to comfort her as I am familiar and close to her.

[I’m sorry]

To Jung Shin. I should have taken more care of him because we are the closest friends. However, I didn’t treat him and talk to him nicely as a friend. Maybe it’s because Jung Shin and I are very close, but I still feel sorry to him for everything. To Jong Hyun hyung, our personalities are very different from each other, and I feel sorry for this.  To Yong Hwa hyung, I feel sorry for not able to catch up with him as his brother. At last, I feel sorry to all girls for not have the trait of being a bad gay (Laugh).

姜敏赫<LOVE>


Romantic guy,這是對敏赫來說最常見的修飾詞。但是說真的,敏赫覺得很孤單。他說他真的很想要戀愛。特別是像今天這樣陽光明媚的暖暖的天氣他看上去對戀愛更加迫 切了。當談論著他一直夢想的愛情的時候,他的眼神仿佛已經陷入戀愛中一樣。現在與渴望愛情的敏赫一起聊天,讓人不知不覺中也開始夢想那些遺失的愛情浪漫。 想要愛情的男人姜敏赫的LOVE!

自己 以前跟朋友們一起踢足球啊,看電影,這些如果說是活動性的興趣生活的話那現在這種活動性興趣生活真的幾乎是沒有的了。好像也只是跟成員們一起聊天這樣做一些不用活動的事情吧。就連遊戲都也是漸漸找一些自己可以玩的遊戲了。

休息日 基本上大半天都是在睡覺。醒過來以後想要做點什麼的話也已經到了別人下班的時間,做什麼都有點困難了貌似。所以因為時間很晚,只呆在家裏的情況就越來越多 了。就這樣只剩下自己的時間裏,想要做點什麼享受下,結果最後更多的是白浪費了時間。一直糾結想要做點什麼,最後時間就那麼過去了。不管是做自我開發還是 單純享受,隨便做點什麼打法時間都好。但是真的最後無法找到那點“什麼”然後白浪費時間的情況居多。

驀然 不 久以前曾經有一段時間其他成員都有行程很忙,只有我自己閑在家裏。一睜眼,家裏什麼都沒有。一起吃飯的人,想要聯絡的人也沒有。就那段時間特別想另外三個 成員。我是那種很能忍受孤獨的人。就算是只有自己的時候一般都不會覺得很寂寞,但是一旦有那麼一次覺得孤單寂寞了的話就特別特別的嚴重。

旅行 我自己旅行過很多次。出道以前沒有練習日程的時候。經常自己拿著相機到處轉。前一天都計畫好,然後一整天從仁寺洞到南山,然後再去天空公園,就這樣自己到 處閒逛。雖然有時候自己的話會覺得更孤單,但是有那樣的閒暇時間的話反而覺得更加有趣來著。雖然自己轉來轉去也覺得很好玩,過後就會想以後能跟女朋友一起 來的話就好了。我那天去的地方都是約會名所呢(笑)。
出道以後也自己出去旅行過。去看海。雖然是冬天但是因為已經漸漸變暖,原本以為不會太冷,結 果海風果然還是太兇殘了。真的特別冷來著。但是那次去的時候剛好趕上潮汐所以風景特別美。一直待到日落。真的是自己玩的很開心的回來的。就好像心靈得到治 癒了一樣。被“刷新”了的感覺。就那一瞬間覺得身心變的清清爽爽了。現在如果給我一天的時間的話我會想要去看望朋友們。雖然也想去旅行但是更想要去看我喜 歡的人們。聊天或者一起運動,怎樣都好。如果能約個會的話就更好咯(笑)。

毒氣 現在對我來說毒氣?就是很需要毒氣。因為好像過的很清閒。心裏並不覺得清閒。也因為我是比較難行動起來的性格。就是需要那種可以讓我行動起來給人看的毒氣就好了。

變舒服 我是屬於那種一直看著就會陷入愛情裏的類型。如果開始覺得那個人變舒服了貌似就代表我已經開始產生喜歡的情愫了。某種程度上講的話就算是第一次見到也可能 會產生好感。跟朋友們一起聊著聊著也可能會這樣。等時間久了,如果讓我開始想“我是喜歡她嘛?”的這種程度的話那就應該是真的喜歡上了。有了喜歡的人的話 就覺得她什麼都好,但是貌似真的有女朋友的某些點?或者是行為看上去會特別美。不過我已經很久沒戀愛過了所以都不記得了(笑)。

勇氣 如果有了喜歡的人的話,會在她身邊潛伏很久,如果覺得到了可以有所表示了的話才會開始行動。我一定要看著她直接對她說。想要這樣做,也覺得這樣做才是對 的。而且真的這樣做了是最好的。如果在咖啡廳裏有接近我理想型的人坐在那裏的話我可能會先去搭訕。因為不知道她的性格所以可能真的會去試探。不過當然要有 符合當時情況的勇氣了。如果我有女朋友或者喜歡的人的話也不會隨便去試探了。所以我是說如果我是在尋找另一半的情況下好像真的可以鼓起勇氣去說。告白碰釘 子的話我可能會至少試個十次。不過現在還沒有這種經歷。

兩支鉛筆 小學二年級的時候開始懂得喜歡 一個人的感覺。我是這樣告白的。就是把兩支鉛筆和一封信一起放到那個人學校桌子的抽屜裏。兩支鉛筆沒有任何意義。就只是一個小 學二年級生的感情吧(笑)。就那樣覺得喜歡然後告白了。那時候太小也不懂約會什麼的嘛。那是我在學校喜歡了三年的女生。也沒有另外單獨見面。五年級的時候 第一次跟女孩子約會,去買了情侶項鏈。真的是什麼都不懂的年紀來著嘛。總是做一些女孩子討厭的事情。比如當時去買項鏈的時候我應該一起選的,結果人家問我 哪個好我只會說“都不錯你隨便選吧”這樣。貌似那就是我的第一次約會吧(笑)。

一起 就真的從一睜開眼睛到晚上閉上眼睛為止能一直在一起就好了。就是說所有時間都能一起度過就好了的意思。即使是不在一起工作,早上男人能送女人去上班,晚上接她下班一起吃飯再一起喝咖啡。就這些生活中瑣碎的事情都可以一起做就好了。

壞男人  開始戀愛的話我 真的什麼都會為對方做。我不知道什麼是壞男人。雖然聽說太過於付出的話會讓人感受不到魅力。但是到目前為止我都沒有試過去做一個壞男人。我的 魅力麼?如果有喜歡的人的話好像真的可以為她做一切。那應該是很照顧人?因為我喜歡啊。現在想要被愛。因為我是太過於付出的類型所以如果我的付出和回報可 以成正比就好了。

我沒有什麼特殊情況的話會想要跟戀愛的人結婚。但是最近想法變了。因為結婚是很久遠的事情不是麼。如果我有了喜歡的人,無條件想要戀愛。能多做一些事最好了。

99% 雖然平時我不是很有眼力價但是戀愛到時候預感基本上是99%的準確率。感覺有什麼要來了的話99%是準的。如果來的晚的就會更加確實。但是當我感覺到那些 的時候也基本上做什麼都晚了。說實話對喜歡的人做心理準備的話,不會因為提前知道了就會少痛一點不是麼。不管怎麼提前預知到,當聽到要分開的那句話的時候 都是一樣的心痛,所以做什麼都是徒勞。反而那種直覺來的話會更難過。也不是不能理解。真的會很難過吧。

如果她生氣的 用盡真心去消她的氣。如果因為別人而生氣我卻能讓她消氣,這也是我的一個能力不是嘛?如果對於她我可以成為這樣的人本身就是很好的事情,而且我是很親近的人啊理所當然也要用盡各種方法去安慰她。

I’m sorry 對正信,因為是親近的朋友應該對他更好更照顧他但是作為朋友的我反而對他很過分,說話也過分,雖然也許也是因為我們確實很親近才這樣,但是對這些事情每一 件 我都覺得對不起。對於宗泫哥因為本來跟我就是完全兩個極端的性格,在這點上我覺得很抱歉。對於容和哥作為弟弟們的我們好像不能快點跟上他所以覺得很抱歉來 著。最後,因為我沒有壞男人的氣質,所以對所有女生感到抱歉(笑)。
