[STARCAST] Lee Jong Hyun’s Bucket List for a Romantic End of the Year

[STARCAST] Lee Jong Hyun’s Bucket List for a Romantic End of the Year

Hello, I am Lee Jong Hyun from CNBLUE. The of year 2013 is already not far from being over. The ‘End of the year’s mood’ is slowly rising up~ What kind of plans does everyone have for this Christmas and for the end of the year~?

 

For me, I have composed and sung the season song for the first time in this end of the year in December. From long time ago, I always used to think that I wished to compose a carol that warms the heart and my wish came true faster than I thought~ It is a song called ‘Love Falls’ and because I wanted to emphasize the romantic mood of Christmas, I made it as a duet song. With a singer JUNIEL, I also held a special activity for about a week to promote the song as a duet team called ‘Romantic J’. While singing, I thought that I will sing this song in live if I have a girlfriend.

 

Are you saying this is romantic~? Haha. For me, there is another kind of ‘Romantic’ that I am thinking of… How about you guys?

 

I am thinking that I am going to slightly reveal my romantic bucket list to wrap up the year of 2013.  B star naver

1. Decorations that can never be left out to make an end of the year’s mood!

If I have a girlfriend, I want to do Christmas decorations! In the end of the year when thinking of Christmas, I feel that ‘Christmas decoration’ is necessary as it to completes the mood. I still feel that way. Even if it is not a giant Christmas tree, I think decorations that match with places and also every little decoration are things that can add to the mood of Christmas.

I think even Christmas decoration reflects the individuality and vibe that are unique to each person so I often look in detail of what colors and the materials the Christmas tree is decorated with. Does it match me~? Haha. It is classic but no matter what, I think decoration items in Christmas trees are pretty when they have clear colors such as a red apple~ I feel like that colors such as red and gold really give the celebrating atmosphere of the end of the year.

B star naver12. The end of the year card that shows sincerity and a gift that contains my mind

 

When the end of the year season approaches, I usually try to call people whom I am grateful for either by calling them no matter what or by meeting them in person, and when I prepare for this in advance, it is good because I do not have to rush for anything. Although there is still a concert that is scheduled, I am still currently preparing so that I do not miss the right time to show what is on my mind. Even now, I think I am not that good at choosing gifts. It is so hard for me to choose gifts. As I think about things such as ‘Are these the things that people who will receive the gift really like it, are these things that they really need” and so on, my concerns begin to multiply. However, if it could be thought of as my own skill, then it might be able to be considered as a good skill, which is to send cards I wrote myself or send messages together along with a gift. Also, the ribbon wrap that makes the gift cooler! Because I think that pretty gift wraps are as important as the content of the gift in expressing my mind, I always put a ribbon for a highlight, haha. (I am a relatively delicate man, right~?)

B star naver2B star naver33. A fancy dinner with people whom I love

If I have a girlfriend, I hope to eat a memorable dinner in such a place that is filled with a warm Christmas mood inside. I want to prepare the menu of this special meal as something that my girlfriend likes the most and also the most surprising at the same time. I think I am not going to regret it only after I prepare everything thoroughly, so even if I have to search all over the internet, I am going to come up with an incredibly fancy plan no matter what!

Especially, I wish to impress her by preparing a dessert that has a Christmas mood. I do not like foods that are too sweet but just for a memorable romantic dinner, I think it would be good to be filled with ‘Sweets’ once in a while. It seems like that there are lots of women who likes very sweet desserts (that I can never eat)~ If I am having dinner with only guys, I will never ever prepare for these desserts but I am thinking of giving it a try once in a while if I started dating someone, haha.

 

It is only my imagination for now but if I face the real situation, then I am going to become very thorough and careful~ I am jealous of all the people who are couples.
I, Lee Jong Hyun, who sings and plays the guitar in CNBLUE, might be spending the end of the year with music. But, I am trying to make time to have dinner with people whom I love and who are most precious~ Of course, I expect to have a special meal time that is filled with the end of the year mood with the members also.

B star naver4B star naver54. The memorable song is necessary! 
In times that wrap up the year, song can never be left out, right~?
In this end of the year, I am thinking of introducing two songs that I am going to endlessly replay. I have chosen the songs that touch the sentiment. I am thinking that these are the songs that people who are solos like me will especially be able to empathize together.

The first song is the song ‘The Blower’s Daughter’, which is a famous soundtrack of the movie ‘Closer’, by Damien Rice. Damien Rice, the sing-a-song writer who is from Dublin, Ireland, is one of my favorite musicians. I think I have to say that I was shocked the moment I listened to the song while watching the movie ‘Closer’… Until now, I still cannot forget the moment when it has touched my heart in a powerful way. I recommend this song as it softens the sentiment while wrapping up the year quietly.

The second song has sad lyrics but I think it is good to listen to it for many, many times during this season. It is the most famous song of Christmas seasons ‘Last Christmas’. There are a lot of carols and Christmas songs on my mind but the best song in my mind I think is always this song. When it is the end of the year, I am happy but when I think about how this year have gone by too fast, there is always a little bit of loneliness left in my mind and I think it is the song that slightly consoles such a feeling.

B star naver6B star naver7

The weather recently have got colder and because of the snow, it really feels like ‘Winter’ and maybe, this Christmas might be a White Christmas! I hope everyone have a romantic and happy end of the year with family, lovers and friends whom you guys love.

CNBLUE is a first Korean rock band who doing a World Tour. Right after debut, they are known as an alternative rock band, they released medium tempo love song this time. We interviewed them about the new song “Blind Love” composed by Jonghyun.

“Blind Love” was released on April 24th. It is their 5th single CD who first time contain love song and a medium tune song for CNBLUE.

Jonghyun: This is kind of “spring” song. At first, I’ve written this song’s lyric in impression of Sakura (cherry blossom). But I didn’t want to make this song for only “spring”, so I’ve changed the lyric.

When I listen to this melody, I feel like seeing cherry blossom petals swirl.

Jonghyun: Well, the original lyric was “you are shining in swirling petals~”. However some of my Japanese friends and our staff said there are lots of Sakura songs in Japan. So I’ve changed it.

Jungshin: Since this time’s the title song has a different image from our previous songs, I was worried that people who listened this song feel a little confused. But it is a love song and melody like J-pop, so I think Japanese Fan will likes this song.

Minhyuk: This is an easy listening song. We also felt fresh feeling.

Yonghwa: We had strong songs up to now, though we have tender song this time. You can feel different style of us.

Almost of your songs were rock tune after your major debut in Japan.

Yonghwa: Yes we are. Most of our songs we’ve written are about a positive thinking like “HOPE”.

pati pati mag12

Did you need courage to make such a medium tune love song as a title song?

Jonghyun: It seemed a “challenge” for me. We try a ballad as a rock band.

Yonghwa: Ummm, it was like one of temptation rather than challenge for me.

What song who comes into your mind immediately as a rock band’s ballad song?

Jonghyun: Bon Jovi “Always” and Oasis “Don’t Look Back In Anger”. These two songs are great as ballad songs.

Yonghwa: Bon Jovi “All About Lovin’ you”.

Jungshin: Bon Jovi is good and MR.BIG.

Minhyuk: Every song that they have said until now (Minhyuk had the same opinion with Jonghyun and Yonghwa).

Jonghyun: See, ballad song is important one for a rock band. I hope our song will be so.

Since this song’s lyric is almost written in Japanese, it’s easy to understand for Japanese fans.

Jonghyun: This song is the love song that anyone has experienced once and has a nostalgic feeling. “No matter how far our distance is, I always love you~”.

The couple in this song already broke up, didn’t they?

Jonghyun: Yes, they did, seems sad though. I would be lying if I said they don’t break up. Even though they broke up, love is blind. This is why “Blind Love”

Then we would like to interviewed you about “With Your Eyes”.

Jonghyun: Actually, we were divided between “Blind Love” or “With Your Eyes” as a title song. In fact many staff chose “With your eyes”.

“With Your Eyes” has more CNBLUE’s sound.

Jonghyun: I think so. “With Your Eyes” is also a good song. “Greedy man” was composed and written a by Yonghwa though; all songs “Blind Love”, “With your eyes”, “Greedy man” are have a good lyrics.

Did you write a lyric of “With Your Eyes” purposely for  “Love”?

Jonghyun: No. It’s about a “Life”.  I can not surely say “A life is like this” in my age. However this is a message that “Since it’s your own life, you must have responsibility for your life”.

Then what about “Greedy Man” composed by Yonghwa?

Yonghwa: This song describes a message “where are you? ”, “I’ll keep loving you”. A lyric of biased love is more interesting than a lyric that say straightly “I love you”, and I think listener also feels so toward this song.

I see. After you released this single, you are going to do World Tour and then ZEPP tour in Japan.

Yonghwa: We just take a step toward the world including Japan. We’ll always do our best.

pati pati mag7

Do CNBLUE members give support to “Blind Love”?

Jonghyun:  Of course they are.

Yonghwa:  What do you mean by “Love is Blind”?

Does it like a straight love. No cheating?

Jonghyun: Yes it does.

Jungshin: It doesn’t mean that you give up your job and to be besotted.

Nobody is here like this type (cheating, besotted and giving up)?

Minhyuk: Nobody.

Jonghyun: Because everybody works hard.

Yonghwa: We have to keep working hard while we are young.

Last

‘In the end of the day, when I am about to sleep I have to do special treatment for my lips. My lip is very dry type so right before sleep I always applies moisturizer to keep the moisture lips. I use non perfume lip balm since I need it for treatment. Because of that I have no problem when I have to talk or perform on the stage.’

Jewel

‘If take a look closely among the part of my body, the one who look stands out is eye. I have keen eyes! Of course the other parts are outstanding too (laugh). I used to hear people said that I have gentle eyes but once I get angry my eyes could be so scary. Fortunately, I am not the type of people who get angry easily so I think there is no chance to see my scary eyes.

School

‘At school I have a lot of friends; I used to close with many of my old teachers. I used to very serious person when it comes to do every assignment; I never made a scene, fussing or something, I am hardly remember I ever had fought with my schoolmates either. And I was really obedient kid so how it possible the teachers did not like me?’

020-1

Actor

‘Honestly, when every one said to me “everything will be okay”, that is a big burden to me.’

Since I am the last CNBLUE’s members who step up into acting field, I felt a lot of burden. Honestly, when everyone said “everything will be okay”, that is a big burden to me. At first, I thought acting is not my things, because surely, the whole thing is not as easy as they are talking about. Some news who came up with headline “Reaching the peak rating” make people start to gossip about and it make me deadly stressful.  My first target on my first drama is: “I have to do the best so that I will not screw up the whole set” and next thing I become ambitious and saying “I have to be able to act naturally” as my second target. I know up to this time I am lacking in many things but I make an effort to make it better little by little. In the beginning as idol I am not doing solo activities yet, it felt dreadful. The other members understand those feeling better than anybody else does and because of that I do feel thankful. All of them keep supporting me. I am really happy to have a chance to act together with many senior actors and actress. Especially Lee Boyoung noona because she is my ideal type, honestly even on my wildest dream I never been dreamt to act together in a drama like this!

020-2

Singer

‘I want to seek for the kind of music that makes many people want to listen and curious about it.’

I am recently challenging the acting field for the first time through drama “My Daughter Seoyoung” and the changes I have gone as an actor Lee Jungshin is also helping my musical activities a lot. Since this is my first time as an actor I told my self frequently that I am extremely low place (he means, his acting knowledge is still negligible). It is a kind of mind control. This mental attitude helps me while I am made myself to do better both as a singer and a bassist. Is not my challenging task and goal to be more and more suit for CNBLUE as a bassist? As for CNBLUE, while we are finding our own color, we want to search for the kind of music that makes people want to listen and curious about it and I want to challenge myself everyday and for a long time in the future as CNBLUE’s bassist.
