CNBLUE February Failure

CNBLUE February Failure

Before I start this, I would like to warn you guys that this article is base on my opinion so I apologize if any of you get offended.

This is not a review but more like critics toward the Can’t Stop album and I guess I am one of the few Boice that oppose this album  from the concept, MV, music in general, and comeback stages. So fellow Boice, read this with your own risk because I already received many angry mentions on twitter because of my disagreement. So yeah, if you are the kind of fans who can’t stand with different idea then I advice you not to read this.

First Impression

cantstop

From the start FNC announced CNBLUE’s new album, I already disagree with the idea, why? Because that means Yonghwa did prepare this album during his MHIYD and Blue Moon Tour and let face it, that Yonghwa is the main person in this album more over right now he also serving as producer as well. I just don not want him to over work himself although he keep saying his work is fun.

My disagreement bit loosens when one night Yonghwa tweeted and saying something about brass music which was increasing my curiosity. Unfortunately, my excitement did not last long because FNC release a selca of the member in MV filming set. I quickly conclude that the album will not meet my expectation and I doubt if I will like the album either. And the more FNC — that continuously — release promotional photos and teasers the more I have no interest with the album.

Honestly I just watched the MV once, and during the time I was just frowning, what with the song and MV? CNBLUE became more and more idol-ish (but for sure I cannot complain, it is Korean after all, what can I expect but as fans I cannot help but disappoint).  And when finally I bought the digital version while I am waiting for my copy arrived, I just glad that I put my expectation on the right place.

One word for this album, I DO NOT LIKE IT (yet I still buy 2 versions of the album).

Why?

cantstop23

First of all, I can find that Can’t Stop music style in many popular band and music now days, nothing special with this album unlike CNBLUE’s previous album because Cant Stop is dominates by commercial music ( ps: I start to listen another Kpop music other than FNC artist to try to understand their style more).

To me CNBLUE has lost their uniqueness, lost their touch in order to give another color in Kpop music. Can’t Stop failed to show their own style and I hate that. The only difference among those Kpop idol is that CNBLUE is playing instruments for real, compose and produce their own songs but those not enough to buy me.

MV

cantstop35

Do not ask me about it because I am highly uninterested, I can bear to listen to the song but not watching the MV.  I read many reviews from fans and medias with mix outcome but I guess I go with those who put the thumbs down.

When the MV was out it was just proven why I do not like the album, to me being mature does not mean you have to wear suit and singing endless love. Mature in music, technique and vision is more important. From here I think they only after cash instead of art. And love is not only love interest between man and woman, there many kind of love in this world yet these days they only care about desire. Where is CNBLUE who likes to sing about their dream, about their daily life, about their interest in chasing the bigger stage? All gone already by the word of “mature”.

Can’t Stop

cantstop4

Speaking about the album I do not understand why they choose Can’t Stop as title track, aside of song title that also album title, I do not think that the song is match enough with the MV concept. For me, if they insist with the concept, why did not the go with Cold Love or Sleepless Night? Both are having melody that suit for the concept. To me Can’t Stop is just plain popular music that you can find everywhere now days that song has no CNBLUE taste at all.

Personally I rooted for Diamond Girl or Like A Child as title track. Only those songs that show it were CNBLUE who compose and sing it. Diamond Girl is just as CNBLUE’s usual music, unique and only them who made it. This song is just different with their previous songs they made without lessen the attractiveness of guitar riff, bold drum beat and fancy bass not to mention the “Brass”, suddenly I wondering Yonghwa’s tweet that night is about this song. Sadly it is not a title track.

Next up is Cold Love, how to say, it is one of CNBLUE’s kinds of medium beat songs, one of the sweet (or sad) slow rock songs, followed closely by Sleepless Night. Another medium low beat songs with interesting guitar solo. Cold Love and Sleepless Night should be Burning Soul favorites songs since here Jonghyun can show off all out of his skill both in singing and guitar. Sleepless Night is bit pop-ish compare to with intense Cold Love rock sound.

The music intensity came into the lowest point for Love Is, another pop ballad and popular and commercial music CNBLUE presented to Boice. Nothing I can say about this song because aside from Yonghwa and Jonghyun harmonic voice, there nothing special about this song.

Last one is Like A Child, another unique song brought up by piano sound, followed by orchestra blended by main instruments, Like A Child bring back CNBLUE’s musical style that seem lost in this album.

Note

I do feel that Minhyuk’s drumming style is very various in this album. He seemed to have more space to explore himself compare with CNBLUE’s previous album.

And of course I do not forget with Jungshin’s fancy bass (this is biased so do not count in).

Comeback

I do feel nothing but proud less, why? Because no “LIVE” and even been cheated by “all live show comeback special”. They did live for TV air, okay, live. But apparently Korean has new meaning of “LIVE” because as long as I know, LIVE means you play there and I watch you at the same time but not with Korean, they have different meaning of that. And if you hope I will appreciate the effort they made for recording — wasting for me — over than 15 hours, nope, do not expect me. Because for me that recording is the most ridiculous thing ever, what did they do wasting so much time just for worth 6 songs and 3 medleys? And the point is; what is called LIVE when they take one song more than once? TV program is full of trick and I never fond of that. For me as cool as their performance on that screen, I am sorry that I am hardly appreciating it.

I am too demanding Boice am I not? LOL

CNBLUE Oricon Special Interview, “NEVER STOP”

CNBLUE Oricon Special Interview, “NEVER STOP”

 

CN Blue, Korea’s band who ever trained in Japan, and now hold world tour and also become very famous not only in Japan and Korea but also in Asia. Before their first documentary movie to be launched and draw near their frankness face, 4 members shared their hardships and gushing hotly now.

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’)

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.
