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.

MINHYUK FOR NYLON MAGAZINE APRIL, 2013 ISSUE

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Up to these days still many people did not know who Kang Minhyuk is. Speaking in this way, it seems in the future many people aware about this guy. Becoming CNBLUE’s drummer and Kim Namjoo’s little brother in the ‘You Who Rolled Unexpectedly’ (well-known as My Husband Got Family also) is just a beginning for him. Although there was preparation for this interview but when met Minhyuk face to face, everything was just different from what we imagine before. During photo shooting, Minhyuk quite flexible and had shown many expressions but it seems he still not show us many thing yet. Hence, everyone will have a lot of question about him. We want to interview him right from the start.

Nylon: As CNBLUE’s drummer, you often being set up behind your drum set, have you ever think to be more stands out?

Minhyuk: Actually to be a band member in this country (Korea) is not recognizable. I think people will not recognizable once they can not sing or dance. I was a bit worry when we were released ‘I’m a Loner’. What I have to do so that people acknowledge our existence? But now I found the answer. We have to be focus with our music without caring what people will say about us. Our band is the best therefore recently we are work pretty hard, really.

Nylon: What did you feel once you took up in the acting field?

Minhyuk: Haha… many people think that ‘You Who Rolled Unexpectedly’ was my debut drama, of course it was a mistake. I have joined in the short movie ‘Acoustic’ and drama ‘It’s Okay Daddy Girl’, and ‘You’ve Fallen for Me’ so it was not my start. I think failure is a precious experience. Besides acting and music are two different things. I think it is very lamentable if unable to give emotion when playing music once you have experiences in acting. I love music and acting because both of them are fun. Some time ago I watched “The New World” movie, Hwang Jeongmin’s acted very well. I want to do (acting) step by step.

Nylon:How about your school days? It says that you were different with another student because you start working since you are young.

Minhyuk: School days, dorms live until daily practice, band members is my closest friends. You guys must be thinking that four young guys living and have activity together as band should be no problem. But I have problem when we are have beer together (maybe he refer to he himself that his skin will turn red once he drink alcohol). Living together makes us even closer and get along well.

Nylon: Looking at your face, you look older than your real age. Your face does not reflect a bad boy type but you look like someone who think carefully before doing something and researcher? Do you such kind of person since you are young?

Minhyuk: I was also thinking that I am such kind of person. It was not because I have hardship during my childhood so that I did not turn to be a bad boy; I just feel if I did something before hand and reckless, it is not fair for my mother, she will be upset. Is it the family thing also the same? Actually during my school days I just playing around with my friends but nowadays I am growing up and since I am working I do feel that my responsibility toward my family increasing gradually. I have to be a reliable son, which is what I am thinking. Of course until now I am not on that stage yet. I still need to learn

Nylon: It is good you think such a thing since you are young. So, in the near future is there any thing in your mind that you want something to be a reality or you optimistic to do it?

Minhyuk: Work! I want to do the best in every of music show and acting. In the past I want to play for fun with my friend but right now, working is also fun. I love this job hence I give the best I can. Every of the members working hard together for the large-scale concert and in the end we are all satisfied with the result, for me, it was like my own achievement. And in my twenties I want to have a beautiful love story, I want to meet someone who looking after me well. Just like her heart, her eyes also has to be big (he means he want someone who has kind heart) and if she is pretty I would be more happy, then when I have a chance I want to go to Europe for holiday. I have beautiful memory in England and Switzerland. I want to come back there again and surely it more wonderful if I have a holiday with my date.

Nylon: Haha only by those words is enough to show that you are the romantic person. One last question, what are you want to be like in the future?   

Minhyuk: At first, when I start appear on the TV screen (start acting) it felt hard and I bit scare with the camera. But this year I put my effort to win over my fear. I think appear naturally as celebrity is one of the most important things. I will keep on optimistic, I want to leave a deep impression in every of my appearance (on drama). Although it is not naturally to express what is inside my mind yet but I want to show it little by little and will keep on in this way (he will keep on learning how to express his feeling).

Nylon: This kid is already grown up as young man. Now that only one thing left whom we not show you yet.

아직은 강민혁을 잘 모르는 사람이 더 많다. 이렇게 말하는 건 앞으로 그를 알게 될 사람이 더 많을 것 같기 때문이다.
씨엔블루 드러머와 <넝쿨째 굴러온 당신>의 김남주 동생 역은 그의 시작일 뿐이다.

인터뷰를 준비하면서 찾아보니 민혁씨에 대해선 생각보다 알려진 것이 별로 없더라고요. 촬영하면서 본 민혁씨는 굉장히 유연하고 다양한 마스크를 갖고 있는데, 아직 우리에게 보여주지 못한 모습이 더 많은 것 같아요. 그래서 누구나 한번씩은 생각하게 되는 뻔한 질문을 하기로 했어요. 처음부터 다시 알고 싶어서.

Nylon : 씨엔블루 드러머 강민혁은 무대에서도 가장 뒤에 있어요. 앞으로 달려나오고 싶은 욕심은 없어요?

MH : 사실 국내에서는 밴드 뮤지션이 생소한 것이 사실이에요. 노래를 부르거나 춤추지 않으면 기억을 잘 못하는 것 같아요. ‘외톨이야’를 부를 때만 해도 좀 속상했어요. 어떻게 하면 더 주목받을까 고민하기도 했고요. 하지만 이제는 알 것 같아요. 욕심을 버리고 서로의 연주에 집중하면서 조회를 이룰 때 나도, 우리 밴드도 가장 멋지다는 걸요. 그래서 요즘은 정말 열심히 쳐요. 진짜로.

Nylon : 연기는요? 해보니까 어때요?

MH : 하하. 많은 분들이 제가 <넝쿨째 굴러온 당신>으로 데뷔와 동시에 잘된 줄 아시는데, 절대 아니예요. 단편 영화 <어쿠스틱>과 드라마 <괜찮아, 아빠딸>, <넌 내게 반했어>까지 많은 작품에 출연하면서 순탄치만은 않게 시작했어요. 실패하면서 경험하는 것이 중요한 것 같아요. 그리고 연기랑 음악은 진짜 달라요. 그런데 재미있는 건 연기하는 게 무대위에서 감정을 연출하는데에 도움이 되고, 음악으로 표현하지 못하는 아쉬움을 연기로 경험하는 것 같아요. 아직은 둘 다 재미있고 좋아요. 얼마 전 영화 <신세계>를 봤는데 황정민씨의 연기가 너무 멋졌어요. 아주 천천히 시간을 들여 둘 다 잘해내고 싶어요.

Nylon : 학창시절은 어땠어요? 남들과는 다르게 어린 나이부터 일을 시작했잖아요.

MH : 고등학생때부터 합숙 생활을 하며 연습해서 멤버들이 믿음직한 동료이지 가장 친한 친구들이에요. 물론 남자 네명이 밴드 활동을 하면 트러블이 생기지 않을 수가 없죠. 하지만 맘에 들지 않는 점이 있을 때도 맥주 한잔 하면서 몽땅 털어버리려고 해요. 함께 지낼수록 서로 이해하는 부분도 점점 많아지고요.

Nylon : 나이에 비해 생각이 어른스러운 것 같아요. 막 까불고 떠드는 장난꾸러기 타입이라기보다는 머릿속의 다양한 생각을 천천히 하나씩 내뿜는 몽상가 타입? 어린 나이부터 일을 시작해서 그런 건가요?

MH : 원래 성격이 좀 그런 것 같아요. 어린 시절에 힘들거나 나쁜 일이 있었던 것도 아닌데, 사내아이가 천진한 개구쟁이가 아니라 생각이 너무 많고 의식이 자유롭지 못한 것 같다고 엄마가 속상해하셨으니까요. 일하면서 달라진 건 가족 생각을 더 많이 하게 된다는것? 고등학생 땐 사실 친구들과 놀기 바빴는데, 어른이 되고 일하면서부터 가족에 대한 책임감이 점점 커지는 것 같아요. 둘재이긴 하지만 장남이라서 그런 것도 있는 것 같고요. 물론 아직까지는 생각만 하지만요. 어서 실천을 해야 할 텐데…

Nylon : 벌써부터 그런 생각을 한다는 것도 좀 신기한걸요. 그럼 민혁씨의 많은 생각 중 짧은 시간 안에 일어났으면 하는 바람 같은 것도 있나요? 현실적이거나 또는 낙천적으로 상상하고 바라는 것들.

MH : 일! 음악이든 연기든 방송 일을 천천히 조금씩 잘하고 싶어요. 예전에는 마냥 친구들과 놀고 싶었다면, 언제부터인지 일이 더 좋고 재미있어졌어요. 그리고 내가 좋아하는 일을 이렇게 인정받으면서 할 수 있는 것도 엄청난 행운이라는 생각이 들고요. 그래서 밴드 멤버끼리 엄청 열심히 합주하거나 큰 공연을 마치고 나면 그렇게 마음이 뿌듯할 수가 없어요. 저 스스로 성취감 같은 것도 들고. 그리고 20대에 멋진 연애를 해보고 싶어요. 나를 많이 예뻐하고 아껴주는 그런 여자를 만나고 싶어요. 마음만큼 눈도 크고 예쁘면 더 좋고, 또 하나가 있다면 유럽 여행. 어릴 적 가본 영국이랑 스위스가 좋은 추억으로 남아 있어요. 꼭 다시 가고 싶은데. 미래의 여자친구랑 함께 가면 가장 좋겠네요.

Nylon : 하하. 말로만 들어도 낭만적이네요. 마지막 질문이에요. 앞으로 어떤 사람이 되고 싶나요?

MH : 처음 방송할 때만 해도 말수도 적고 방송도 어렵고 두려운게 많았어요. 조심스럽기만 하고. 올해는 그런것을 극복하려고 노력하는 중이예요. 사람들에게 나를 자연스레 어필하는 건 꼭 내가 연예인이 아니더라도 살면서 필요한 것 같아요. 그리고 나는 기본적으로 낙천주의자예요. 억지로 애씨기보다는 흘러가는 대로 두고 싶어요. 자연스럽게 마음속에 열망이 있지만 한 번에 꺼내기 보다는 조금식 보여주고 싶어요. 앞으로도.

Nylon :이미 다 자란 것처럼 끝까지 어른스럽네요. 이제 하나씩 보여줄 일만 남았어요.

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.’
