CNBLUE whom the 5th single CD is well received.
“When you heard this song, I want you to think that it is a good song.”
“Blind Love” is a new type love song written by Jonghyun.
Jonghyun: I made this song only for our fans but also for such as the people who walk around. Almost people like a love song, I have written this song with simple word.
We can actually visualize the scene. Is it a story that is still thinking of the person who broke up? I feel wistful but warm.
Jonghyun: To begin with, I like such a song.
Yonghwa: Love song~. It’s good.
Jungshin: The lyric is worth to listen to.
Jonghyun: Depends on the situation, I think the impression of lyric might change. It has an image of nostalgic, warm and shiny feeling.
Minhyuk: We played this song for fans for the first time on the other day; I felt that atmosphere is different from live and recording. I could get into this song and raise my spirits because we have a lighting and special effect on live.
Jonghyun: I was happy that fans had felling for this song and sung it with us.
Yonghwa-san, what did you feel when you sang this song?
Yonghwa: The melody is simple and the lyric is easy to memorize, so I was able to finish to recording it faster than usual.
How long did it take to make this music?
Jonghyun: I had a rough image since the end of the last year and I made a serious attempt in one week in January. I had made it on the back stage of the award ceremony on year-end though, I was asked to do it on the staircase because there are lots of groups there. I made a melody on there, and when I went back to home I arranged it.
But it was noisy there isn’t it?
Jonghyun: I didn’t care about it. Sometimes I sing to myself in front of others.
Jungshin: I am annoyed with it.
Yonghwa: It is a little awkward
Jonghyun: Seriously? I am sorry.
Jungshin: Just joking.
Yonghwa: It’s okay!
Oh, good. Well, next is about “With your eyes”. It is also composed by Jonghyun. But this song is an aggressive rock tune and it has a different image from “Blind Love”.
Jonghyun: Yes, it is totally different.
And the lyric were all written in English.
Jonghyun: We can not surely say “This is the life” in my age such as 23 or 24 years old. However this is a message that “Since it’s our own life, Let you do it by yourself! But it doesn’t make only yourself and it is difficult to find an answer of life, let’s find it out together.”
It has a big theme of life starting from love.
Minhyuk: This time’s our single CD has good lyrics.
“Greedy man” was composed by Yonghwa that has rock tune.
Yonghwa: I made this story attached with love. I can say this is enjoyable love song.
Jonghyun: Our single includes different variations music in each time though; there are especially different types at this time. You could feel “This is CNBLUE.”
“We are progressing towards the future, we want to be shown evolved CNBLUE”
Now you are having a world tour, I heard you make a big wave in each country.
Jungshin: We had had a live in Taiwan and Singapore, and next up is ZEPP tour in Japan, we will go to Thailand and Hong Kong. Since every time fans give us rapturous welcome, we are looking forward to going there and our spirits are raised high. We can feel we have a good live.
Whenever you have a live, we can see your evolution as a band.
Minhyuk: The live tour in Japan is a live house performance after a long time for us. The stage is close to the fan, we are looking forward to doing it.
We are excited for ZEPP tour. By the way, from “Greedy man”, what are you greedy for?
Yonghwa: (quickly) for sleep!
Jungshin: Me too. I have 100 % desire for sleep.
Junghyun: I have the strongest desire for sleep among members.
Minhyuk: Me too, desiring for sleep.
Yonghwa: Sleeping is more important than eating for us now.
Jonghyun: It is happy to sleep without thinking anything.
Oh, you look so tired…
Jungshin: From the beginnings, I like to sleep.
Have you experienced that because a song comes up with your head, while you were trying to sleep, you couldn’t sleep?
Jonghyun: Yes I have. If I try to sleep while music is playing, I keep listening to this music, so I cannot sleep. I always keep in silence.
Have you ever had a dream to be pressed by producing a music, or coming up with a song in your dream?
Jonghyun: No, I have actually not, and I don’t want to have such a dream.
Yonghwa: I have never seen a dream about music.
Minhyuk: Me too.
Jungshin: I don’t remember almost what I’ve dream of.
Yonghwa: But I may want to see a nightmare.
A nightmare? Does it seem that there is nobody in live?
Yonghwa: Oh, no, no, I don’t want to see it. I would like to see that a ghost comes, or having an experience what I cannot experience in the reality.
Jonghyun: I may have desire for eating than sleeping. I think I am a light eater but I can get a good power from eating a delicious food!
At last, in “Blind Love”. The main character is still thinking of the person who broke up. Are you the person who keeps to having a memory of the love? Or are you the person that can be switched feeling immediately?
Jonghyun: I think it depends on the other side.
Minhyuk: I would like to memorize only a good memory.
You just do daringly don’t you?
Jonghyun: If we memorized only the good memory, we can forget bad memories, can’t we?
Yonghwa: I memorize everything. I can’t believe that the person who forget the memories.
These your thinking reflects to your song?
Yonghwa: Yes, I don’t always think or remember about our memories. But our experiences are refracted. In our music even these are good or bad
Jungshin: I don’t remember the all memories, but I remember the impressive, happy thing. I can remember. That the saddest memories instead.
Jonghyun: Of course. We are here now because there is past. The past is also important, but we are progressing towards the future rather than live in the past! After a world tour, you can see we’re grown up.
Minhyuk: Let’s enjoy ZEPP tour together!
Yonghwa: We are doing our best to be shown evolved CNBLUE.
Jungshin: We’ll express the cool of CNBLUE with sounds. Have a fun!
