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”.

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.

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.

The Stars – 2nd Something Inside

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.

‘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?’
