Summer is really at the peak right now, with Jonghyun showing off his arm muscle, it can be sure the heat of the summer rising up undoubtedly, LOL (I think I’ll die if Jonghyun shown off his abs like Jonghoon did!)

For sure it surprising and exciting to wait for the magazine come out by August 30th, not only Jonghyun but the title for CNBLUE, ‘CNBLUE HEALING’ and their pose , yatching, is really something. Seriously I can’t  wait for the magazine and trans it (since I don’t know korean 😦 )

CNBlue’s “Blue Moon World Tour” Concert in Singapore

cnbluemoonSG selca

It was a long two-year wait for CNBlue to perform in Singapore since their last appearance at a fan-meeting. April 13 was a sleepless night for many Boices as they relished every song and witty banter at the energy-packed “Blue Moon World Tour Live in Singapore“.

Organized by One Productions, tickets to the one-night-only show were quickly snapped up right from the start of ticket sales. With so many Korean artists heading to Singapore for showcases and fan meetings, it is certainly no small feat to fill the Singapore Indoor Stadium with a seating capacity of 12,000!

Members Jung Yonghwa, Lee Jonghyun, Lee Jungshin and Kang Minhyuk immediately warmed up the audience with a powerful opening and continued to belt out one rock song after another over the course of the concert. They did not stop even once for costume changes, as they focused with all their might on delivering their best to the fans. As there were no solo stages for members to rotate and rest, their stamina for the two and a half hour concert was truly amazing.

The night was also filled with laughter whenever the comedic band stopped to interact with their audience. Twice, fans were asked by Yonghwa to ”ride the wave” (the raising of arms in consecutive order to create a tidal effect).

The four guys certainly took their music very seriously, as evident from performing in their sweaty shirts from start to end. However, they were not stingy in showing their humorous sides to fans. During one of the talk breaks, we even wondered if the organizer had been mistreating them by feeding them only fishballs! Watch the clip below and find out for yourself what we mean.

Kudos to CNBlue for trying their best to interact with fans in English without a translator. I would certainly award them full marks for their effort!

My favorite moment of the night has to be this! Fans sang along to “Love Light” and Yonghwa gave a very lovely twist to the end by changing the lyrics.

The only disappointment of the night was the stage team’s failure to switch on white lights as Yonghwa earnestly requested them to do so several times, exclaiming, “I want to look at you (fans)”. Oh well, may the next concert will be better!

The Stars – 2nd Something Inside

the stars

John sighs and straight his back up, ‘alright, I think we got to talk about a new member. I do feel that we missing something, four is better than three.’

Silence.

‘No idea?’ John asked since Tom and Ringo fell silent.

Ringo open his eyes lazily and saying, ‘I have no other person than Jerry and Tom rejected it. So?’

Tom shrugged, ‘He’s the last choice then.’

‘Anyway what’s wrong with him? You don’t even know him, you make nonsense judgment.’ Ringo pouted.

John looks at Ringo for agreement, aside of everything he, too, has no idea why Tom hates Jerry.

‘He frightened me.’

Both John and Ringo look at Tom in disbelief. The man who afraid of nothing and loves using his fist rather than words threatened by first year junior? It must be a joke.

‘Come on, look at his appearance, long hair, pierces and anyway, how tall is he?’

Both John and Ringo burst into laughter. Did they hear right?

‘And I don’t like somebody who likes playing around; I can see that he never be serious.’ Tom continues spitting out his impression towards Jerry.

‘Sorry mate,’ John coughing, ‘I think you think too much, and yes, how tall is he?’ John asked to Ringo.

‘I don’t know, 6.3 maybe, anyway Tom, as you said, he likes playing around, didn’t you think it’s good. We’re not only needing someone who playing bass but also someone who wanna wasting time.’ Ringo explained sending both John and Tom into puzzle.

‘You got to wake up,’ Ringo indicated to Tom, ‘we don’t have many choices, you know, most of our classmates belong to the talent agencies already.’ Ringo concluded.

The Stars – 1st, First Impression

‘Can we have our time now?’ finally it was Tom who broke the silence.

His question makes the two of his friend facing him at the same time. With question look Ringo look at him and John back and forth.

‘Alright, as you wish, shall we hiring by audition?’ said John slowly.

Ringo’s eyes widened and his brow furrowed, ‘what was this all about?’

‘He wants a new bassist.’

Tom did not gives any replay, he just look at Ringo as if he is waiting for another rejection.

‘Bassist,’ Ringo murmured. ‘Ahhh… Jerry, what about Jerry?’ Ringo said almost yelling with excitement.

‘Who?’ John and Tom asked in chorus.

‘Jerry, the guy who had hidden behind you,’ Ringo explained. ‘He’s same grade with me.’

‘That guy? No way!’ Tom shoots quickly.

To his surprise by Tom’s reaction, Ringo asked the reason and Tom simply saying that the boy is the stupid type.

Ringo rolled his eyes by listening Tom’s reaction.

‘Heaven sake, what happen with your reaction? You don’t even know him,’ Ringo laughed.

Tom nodded.

‘Oh please, didn’t you see what he had doing just now? Believe me I can see that he likes fooling around; in fact, he’s deadly stupid.’ Tom said.

‘Hey mate you think too far,’ John gave his opinion to his irritated friend, Tom, and turn to Ringo, ‘how do you know if he plays bass?’

THE STARS

the stars

The Stars is a story about four art shcool students who pursue their dream in music. Inspired by Korean rock band CNBLUE, The Stars giving a small hint about what might happen to them during their pre-debut in Japan as indie band.

Not to be confuse here, this story is definately not CNBLUE’s documentary although some of them based with what they had told in many interviews.

Overall The Stars is teens story where dream, passion and failure created. As John said to warn his member once their only proper stage about to close down,   ‘the first stone will followed by another, be ready ‘cause our path is still long way to go and we’re not suffering yet.’

The most drastically changing within CNBLUE lately is because the movement from Yeungdeungpo to Gangnam. In the previous dorm although we have living room but mostly we are spent the time on our own room. Meanwhile in our new dorm we have big large space of living room, I am pretty happy (laugh).

Journalist

If I am happening to be a reporter, I want to ask such a question: “What is your reason involved in music industry?” my real reason is I want to be somebody who lives by doing his desire passionately as part of my destiny. (He means doing music is his destiny.)

Health

I am not such a couch potato and used to do activities all day along. I can do martial art and used to do stretching as basic training everyday. The problem is even I want to train everyday CEO and some of the people advise me not to do so much train because they afraid I will injured myself. So, recently I just do weight training (to control the weight). Actually this is a secret but I have “king abs” (means six packs, in Chinese character king=王). Other people probably do not notice it but I have a good body to show off (laugh).

Singer

“I want to be a great guitarist even tough I am getting older. I keep trying to let myself flowing as the world does.” (He means that he is a person who able to adapt and still professional.)

I do music and acting recently, I think if the time I have is too limited. But doing both improved my skill and gives me a lot of possibilities in the future. In music for instance, I really think that I am nothing but I do feel challenged to have this opportunity. Because if I keep on explore my basic skill, both music and acting are actually quite fun. Still I think if my real root is music. Guitarist that leaves me a deep impression is Eric Clapton and just like him, I want to be a great elder guitarist. I try to keep flowing as the time change and importantly to be a good-looking man as well, haha.

018-2

Actor

“If I looking back my life time until now, it feels like I win a lottery, good fortunes come one after another.”

In the past, I used to think “acting is not my field”. Nowadays if I thinking back again, band and acting are two big things who come like lottery in my life, thus far I just doing music and when I made a first leap in acting field as a drama cast, I felt strangeness and completely lost.

Since we have debuted we are four experiences difficulties in reunited audiences. With the time goes by it becomes easier and through acting it comes even better. Actually, through acting, people who do not know CNBLUE begun to acknowledged and start to listen to our music (so then we could promote our band to them), that is a good point.

Right now, we are four doing both music and acting, it is looks good (because we have more self-confidence). Up to this day, I do not know what people think yet, but I hope they will say, “Very good”.

I really want to learn acting from experienced senior actors and crews. As Busan native, I love “Friend” movie, that movie had starred by Jang Donggun senior that is another reason I felt honour to act together with him (Jonghyun referred to A Gentleman’s Dignity he starred with Jang Donggun). The impression during drama filming is fun; I would like to say “pretty good” right from the start-up to the end of the drama.
