12th April 2013, Singapore – K-Pop band CNBLUE touched down in Singapore earlier last night for their upcoming Blue Moon World Tour that is scheduled to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on April 13th and it looks like the members are all in good spirits today, as they made an appearance at the press conference in the afternoon. Comprised of four members namely Jung Yonghwa, Lee Jonghyun, Lee Jung Shin and Kang Minhyuk, CNBLUE is widely known for their band performances as well as the unique style of music they pursue.
Not their first visit to Singapore, CNBLUE expresses that they are really thankful for the huge turnout of fans who came to the airport to welcome them when they arrived. The members felt that Singapore is a clean city accompanied with beautiful night scenery. With Singapore being the second leg of their Blue Moon World Tour line-up, CNBLUE added that they are anticipating the concert as much as the fans and have prepared fresh performances from their latest album.
So what can the fans look forward to at the concert in Singapore? Yonghwa answers spontaneously, “We are just going to have lots of fun tomorrow. We need to enjoy ourselves in order for our fans to have fun and enjoy the concert together.”
“We have a little wish, and that is for the fans to go crazy with us, scream their lungs out, and get really high during the concert“, added Jonghyun.
It has been more than two years since the band last visited Singapore for their showcase. Now that they have returned for a full-fledged solo concert, the band was bursting with excitement and can’t seem to hide the joy as expressed across all of the members’ faces. While witnessing the growth of their musical journey, CNBLUE shares about their feelings of holding a world tour, “First of all, we are very thankful that people are recognizing us as a band now. Of course, during our debut days we started off as a rookie band and not many people could recognize our music. We are really grateful and honored to be standing at where we are now. As we’ve been through hard times together, we are appreciative of what we have now and we truly believe that CNBLUE is here because of the strength and support our fans have gifted us.”
CNBLUE is also known as idols who starred in several drama projects and are active in the acting field. When asked about their drama/movie participation, the members mentioned that they are open to take on any roles and are willing to challenge themselves with various drama characters if opportunity allows. Yonghwa goes on, “We believe that the art of music is part of delivering our performance as an artist. It helps me to better express myself in terms of music and acting. Reflecting on the two previous dramas I have filmed, I believe that I could show myself as a brighter person for the next project that I will be involved in as I am a very cheerful and bubbly person…and I’m funny too!”
Minhyuk continues, “We are in the midst of preparing for our world tour at the moment. I do receive a lot of scripts from drama producers, but right now I would like to focus on the world tour first. However if there is a good opportunity for me, I will definitely go for it.”
In differentiating themselves as a band from other K-Pop groups, Yonghwa voiced out, “I think we are part of K-Pop, but probably the difference and our biggest strength is that we are a band. Unlike other K-Pop idols who sing and dance at the same time, we produce a lot of our own music.”
“We believe that our foreign fans like our music because to them, band music is like a common interest. Also, there are not many groups that made their debut as bands in Korea too. Maybe that is the reason which makes us stand out as a band”, explained Jonghyun.
Before the press conference came to an end, CNBLUE brought out special gifts that they have prepared for the medias who asked them questions, and briefly shared that those boxes contain traditional snacks from Korea which they used to enjoy with their family members during festive season. With such kind intentions, it was not a wonder that the band has received much love from the fans and public since their debut.
