Main Text

Last year, the first Arena Tour gathered around hundred thousands people, which is the most memorable stage for you?

The biggest stage at Saitama Super Arena, the passionate atmosphere was incredibly great. When the lights shine on us, we could not really see the audiences but when it turned off, I can see right in front up to the foremost audience’s seats. The most noticeable were the male audiences, there were not many but their respond was good. I could see it right away.

Do you have something necessary at the back stage?

Coffee and energy drink.

Handsome, probably because I did not hear this word much once I getting older so I should hear it more now. (Laugh)

Minhyuk

Profile

Born June 28th, 1991, a drummer; last year participated in Japan – Korea friendly baseball match as part of Hallyu team, whacking baseball bat can reduces stress is not it? (Laugh) There are not a lot of batting centre at Korea so just finding a place need quite a bit effort. Even though I like baseball mostly I just watch the game. The most used Japanese word is “nothing special”, necessary thing at the back stage also nothing special. If it raining I like rain, if it sunny then I like the sun and so for snow, if happening snowy day, I like it too. It was quote from this interview.

Main Text

Which  was memorable the most during Arena Tour?

As the member who likes eating the most, food from all the places during tour is the most interesting. We had tebasaki at Nagoya, takoyaki at Osaka even though each place has their own specialties but as we were visiting many new places, experiencing something new is wonderful.

Who is among the audiences that you notice the most?

Since I am drummer so I sit at the back all the time and hardly to see the audiences but when the light was turn off I can see the light stick as if the stars on the night sky. I am happier about this than the other members. That is what I am thinking anyway. (Laugh)

What is your favorite Japanese word that you want to hear to make you happy?

“Kawaii” which is rarely used by male, since in Korea “Kawaii” seems to judge the other for not “man-like” so when I heard that word during performances I felt confuse… if (the fans) shout out “handsome” then I would be really happy.

What is your favorite perfume?

Dior Homme

Where will you go with your date?

Hmmm… since I am the type who does not like being annoyed, she can decide where to go (laugh). If I have to decide, then we can go to Jejudo in Korea. The reason is simply it easier rather than to go abroad. (Laugh)

How is your sleeping pose?

The other members said as if I am playing drum even when I am sleeping. May be I am performing during my sleeping time?

What if you are happening set up on the desert island?

Jungshin and me, the dongsaeng team, we will go to find something to eat, hyungs can do physical stuff, and all of us will survive.

Fortunately, I am not the type of people who get angry easily so I think there is no chance to see my scary eyes.

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.

Standing on the Boundary of Sneakers and Suits, a 25 Years Old Youth JungYonghwa

yh mk fash2

In 2010, the year when dancing idols were the norm, a boy band appeared that sang and played instruments. With looks and live instrument skills, as well as the free spirits not seen in the existing male idol groups, CNBLUE captivated the whole music scene.

The four members have their own different charms but he is the one that received the most limelight. He’s the leader and the vocalist, who shouts “Make some noise!” on stage like a veteran. If the singer and the guitar player on stage can be likened to a pair of leather boots with untied shoelaces , the real him in person is like a pair of casual and comfortable sneakers.

The rebellious and tough look we saw on music programs is so gone. In a grey tee and jeans, he appeared in front of us with just the air of youthful freshness.

The fashion item that he likes most and is willing to spend regardless of price is sneakers. “I’m someone who just shops for all kinds of sneakers. I usually go to the select shops to try them on and then buy them. It’s the same with clothes. I never buy such things online.”

Recently, we noticed a newly added ear stud with The Rolling Stones logo in addition to the large, shiny cubic earrings we always saw. “As for accessories, I only care to wear earrings. I used to like rings and bracelets, but now I find it a nuisance wearing too many accessories. Wearing rings to play the guitar isn’t comfortable at all, so I gave up. Watches are collectibles, so I wear one once in a while.”

yh mk fash

 

Like guys of his age, he’s interested in fashion trend. But he says there are not many occasions requiring him to dress up, that’s why he always wears simple tees and jeans. It’s the reason why he actually anticipates the award shows when he can wear suits as much as he wants. He says with a smile, “I think I look most handsome in a suit.”

Jung Yong Hwa really has the tall and slim built so suitable for formal suits. “I don’t go for special physical training. I do exercise from time to time just to keep shape. I love eating, so I don’t diet or watch what I eat like other idols.”

Being able to keep a relatively slim built without dieting and having clean skin, he didn’t have any cosmetic surgeries in this era of abuse. His big eyes with the double eye lid creases that come and go are somehow more charming than some westerners’ prominent eyes. “I like my eyes. I especially like that mole under my eye, just because it’s unique. Only I have it. I don’t like my high cheek bones. Whenever I am laughing, the camera can’t help but capture my too obvious cheek bones.”

For someone who needs to wear makeup often for TV appearances, it’s easy to get pimples. But we are seeing his smooth and tanned skin only. “I do go for facial treatments but I am not peculiar about my skin at home. I am the kind that doesn’t bother to use hand cream unless someone cares to look after those things. ”

yh mk fash4

Compared to people of the same age, the 25-year-old started early in the society and has experienced so much more. It’s the age when one gets angry feeling angry, or hangs out with friends whenever feeling like it. All stars show their happy faces on TV when doing the various programs; he must smile sometimes without obvious reasons. He says there are other happy moments that he actually feels like laughing out loud.

“Concerts are the happiest time. When I sing, feeling the unison with the fans, hearing all the applause on my way down the stage . . . Everything of the concerts satisfies me and makes me happy.”

CNBLUE is preparing for their upcoming world tour. They have made a name not only in Korea but also the rest of the world. “My ultimate dream is to reach number one on the Billboard Chart, just like Psy sunbaenim who lets the whole world know and recognize Korea’s music.” When he says the above without any hesitation, his eyes were full of confidence, more than any other answers during the whole interview. But he quickly changes to a naughty tone, saying, “Let’s meet in the May concerts.” Pureness and professional passion in the same guy.

The Jung Yong Hwa who talks to us sincerely, his speech mixed with dialect here and there, is completely different from the tough and wild image he shows on stage. There is no pretense. Carrying the same aim he set for himself when he started as a rookie, he’s been walking his own road quietly. Let’s anticipate together: there will be such a day when CNBLUE’s music is played in New York Times Square, making people of the whole world crazy.
