This is CNBLUE’s first professional concert. Different from past concerts in Japan, the state of preparation, the quality, the contents, all were in different level. The performance, singing, sound, all were perfect, no regret at all. The stage was simple, just full of instruments, Jong Hyun had 4 guitars, Yong Hwa had 4 guitars too. So the stage was full. Min Hyuk’s drum looked really new, and I saw one thing new, a hanging xylophone(?). Stage decoration, special effects were not too much, just good. The video clip on the back screen made me tear. This program will be the program of Asian Tour. It’s great, a must-watch. It will be a black hole into CNBLUE, no exit.

Opening video, 4 black dots become bigger, to 4 members in black suits. They appeared in front of screen, came up from bottom, with black suits, looked sexy. They played Intro and Let’s go crazy. Korean fans sang along all songs, from Intro.

Yong Hwa: I was so nervous, I couldn’t sleep last night….

Jung Shin’ greeting: We’ve practiced really hard for today..
Yong Hwa: Don’t you say the words you always say? ‘Let’s play together’
Jong Hyun: Today I’m gonna say ‘Let’s enjoy together.’

Min Hyuk: Last night you prepared much longer ment than it. I helped you as a roommate.

Jung Shin: Uhhhh I forgot.
Yong Hwa: You couldn’t sleep last night!
Jung Shin: Uhh no
Jong Hyun: I slept well.
Jung Shin sang Love Revolution, not only rap, but also the 1st verse singing part. He did rap of ‘Ready N Go’ too.

Their guitars were all wireless. So they went around all over the stage. Yong Hwa came to Jung Shin’s position, but he couldn’t sing, because the mic was too high haha. He smiled. I laughed out loud. He couldn’t adjust it because he had to play the guitar. He adjusted it and sang. After Jung Shin came to his own position, he pulled it up again.

End of 1st part, ‘Teardrops in the rain’. At ending part, Jong Hyun sang by himself under single light. Others went in. Jong Hyun was so emotional. It was so touching. Best part for me. Jong Hyun Jjang!! After his singing, all fans were moved and shouted endlessly “Lee Jong Hyun!! Lee Jong Hyun!!” But he just went in without a word. Fans shouted “hey you cold city guy!” (It’s Jong Hyun’s nickname, cold city guy)

2nd part, opening video was members who were changing clothes. Jung Shin was buttoning white shirt. Fans shouted crazily.

After that video, 4 members appeared in front of screen, in all white suits. They looked like elegant prince charming.
They played an insturmental music then LOVE.

After part 2, fans were shouting “Encore!”
Suddenly a word ‘Fool’ was appeared on the sceen.
Then bg and video started. The bg was ‘arigato’ instrumental. And the video is of their FNC trainee days and Japan days.
Text appreared on the screen.
We are fool. We loved only music, we ran to here just for music.
You are fool. You became to like us. When we were hurt by cruel words, you cried before we do. You are fool.
It’s a song which a fool give to a fool.’
Yong Hwa came out by himself, white T-shirt, jeans, white neat hair band, playing acoustic guitar, singing ‘A song for a fool’.
Soon other members came out with T-shirt and jeans.
Then they started A song for a fool from the first again with full band version. It was so cool!
The lyric was shown on the screen, so all fans sang along.

Yong Hwa: I’ve teared 3 times. One was at the showcase, behind the screen. Second was when I finished lyric and composing of ‘One time’.
And the third is today, at rehearsal, When I saw this video for the first time.
Then why you guys didn’t cry? wasn’t it touching? (sulk)
We shouted, “We cried!”
Jung Shin said, “Don’t trust Yong Hwa’s tear, he is an actor.”

Fans sang along all songs, I also perfectly memorized all lyric, Korean, English and Japanese. Members were surprised and happy. When Jong Hyun started singing Sweet holiday, fans sang along, Min Hyuk was suprised then smiled so brightly.
Fans sang along ‘Let’s get it started’ and Umbrella too.

The last song was ‘One of a kind’, in the middle, only drum kept playing, others stopped and spoke goodbye words.
Yong Hwa said, “Min Hyuk, can you say goodbye?”
Min Hyuk kept playing drum, “Hak Hak Everyone! Hak Hak I love you!” It was so cute and sexy. He really drove fans go crazy.

After singing, membered wiped their sweat with CNBLUE towel, then threw it into audience.
Then they gathered hands and shouted “Let’s all die yeah!”

The first time ever I saw them was last year Christmas, MV filming of I’m a loner. At that time, I saw them closely for 5 hours. I was shocked because they were so much handsome. So I thought I don’t need to be surprised to their looks any more. But today, I was surprised again. They became matured, skilled and manly.

At 2nd floor left side, there were Yong Hwa’s parents and his elder brother, and Jong Hyun’s parents and his elder sister. At right side, Min Hyuk’s parents and his elder sister, Jung Shin’s parents, 5 FT island members and former member Kwang Jin. That was originally empty space, put 20 chairs there. Regular seats were all occupied by fans, not one seat was used by the company. Yong Hwa kept flying wink, heart to his parents. Yong Hwa has same face as his mom. He was really windsome to his family. Yong Hwa has puppy’s face, while his brother looked manly (4 years older). Other members didn’t show any reaction to their family. (Jong Hyun didn’t call Appa). On the way out, I saw Jong Hyun’s elder sister closely. She was much taller than me, very small face, very big eyes. She made her up gorgeously. I thought she was a celebrity. But she called “Dad Mom” to Jong Hyun’s parents. Jong Hyun resembled his father. Fans said Min Hyuk’s elder sister was also so pretty, with smooth skin and pure beauty. (Their sisters are all pretty, that’s why their standards for women are high.)

The AX hall is small. It must be the smallest concert of CNBLUE. I’m happy I could join it today. Next concert will be 10 times bigger than this… I wonder how they can progress everyday…

Yong Hwa said today, “Do you remember our promise of being a grandpa band? I don’t know where we are going but you guys go with us to the end!”

I'm sure the concert went very well seeing from the boy's smiling faces. CN Blue must be way too happy to have completed their first live Korea concert and also with their more-than-well-done live performance.


Dari Akaun Peminat: saturn.@soompi

Ini merupakan konsert professional CNBLUE yang pertama. Berbeza dengan konsert mereka yang lepas di Jepun, persiapan,kualiti, content, semuanya pada paras lain. Persembahan, nyanyian, bunyi semuanya sempurna, tiada rasa hampa langsung. Pentas sederhana penuh dengan alat muzik, Jong Hyun mempunyai 4 gitar, Yong Hwa juga mempunyai 4 gitar oleh itu pentas telah penuh. Drum Min Hyuk pula tampak baru dan sesuatu baru yang saya lihat adalah xylophone yang tergantung. Dekorasi pentas, ‘special effects’ tidak keterlaluan, sedang-sedang sahaja. Video klip di skrin belakang membuat saya terharu. Program ini akan menjadi program untuk ‘Asian Tour’. Ia hebat, harus ditonton. Ia akan menjadi ‘black hole’ ke dalam CNBLUE dan tiada jalan keluar. Video pembukaan, 4 titik hitam menjadi semakin besar bertukar kepada kempat-empat ahli berpakaian sut hitam. Mereka muncul di depan skrin dari bawah ke atas, dengan sut hitam, mereka kelihatan seksi. Mereka telah mainkan Intro dan Let’s Go Crazy. Peminat mereka turut nyanyi bersama semua lagu mereka dari Intro.

Yong Hwa : Saya terlalu gemuruh, saya tak dapat tidur malam semalam

Jung Shin : Kami telah berlatih dengan keras untuk hari ini

Yong Hwa : Bukankah awak selalu berkata begitu? ‘Mari bermain sama-sama’

Jong Hyun : Hari ini saya akan kata ‘Mari bergembira bersama-sama’

Min Hyuk : Malam semalam awak telah berlatih lebih lama. Saya telah membantu awak sebagai seorang ‘room-mate’

Jung Shin : Uhh saya terlupa

Yong Hwa : Awak tak boleh tidur malam semalam!

Jung Shin : Uhh tidak

Jong Hyun : Saya dapat tidur dengan enak

Jung Shin menyanyi lagu Love Revolution, bukan sahaja rap tetapi juga telah nyanyikan verse pertama. Dia juga telah rap untuk lagu ‘Ready N Go’ juga.

Gitar mereka semuanya wireless, jadi mereka telah pergi ke seluruh kawasan pentas. Yong Hwa telah pergi ke posisi Jung Shin, tapi tidak dapat menyanyi kerana mikrofon terlalu tinggi haha. Dia tersenyum. Saya gelak dengan kuat. Dia tak dapat membetulkan mikrofon kerana sedang bermain gitar. Dia telah membetulkannya dan sambung menyanyi. Selepas Jung Shin kembali ke tempat asalnya dia telah menarik kembali mikrofon ke atas. Di akhir bahagian pertama, ‘Teardrops in the rain’ di bahagian terakhir, Jong Hyun telah nyanyi berseorangan di bawah hanya satu lampu, yang lain telah masuk kedalam. Jong Hyun sangat emosional. Benar-benar menyentuh hati. Bahagian terbaik bagi saya. Jong Hyun Jjang! Selepas nyanyiannya, semua peminat telah tersentuh dan tanpa henti menjerit “Lee Jong Hyun!! Lee Jong Hyun!!” tetapi dia telah masuk tanpa sepatah kata. Peminat menjerit ‘ Lelaki Dingin Bandar’ ( itu merupakan ‘nickname’nya).

Pada bahagian kedua pula, video pembukaan adalah ahli-ahli band sedang menukar pakaian. Jung Shin sedang membutang baju putihnya. Peminat menjerit penuh kegilaan. Selepas video itu, semua ahli muncul di depan skrin, semuanya dalam sut putih. Mereka tampak elegan seperti ‘prince charming’. Mereka telah memainkan lagu ‘Love’ versi instrumental.

Bahagian kedua, peminat telah menjerit “Encore!”. Tiba-tiba muncul perkataan ‘Bodoh” di skrin. Kemudian video telah mula dan backgroundnya ‘Arigato(Instrumental). Video yang ditunjukkan adalah waktu mereka menjadi trainee FNC dan waktu mereka di Jepun. Teks muncul di skrin 'Bodoh'

Kami bodoh. Kami hanya cintakan muzik, kami lari ke sini hanya untuk muzik. Kamu bodoh. Kamu telah menyukai kami. Apabila kami sedih dari perkataan-perkataan menyakitkan, kamu telah nangis sebelum kami nangis. Kamu bodoh. Ini lagu untuk seorang yang bodoh dari seorang yang bodoh.

Yong Hwa muncul seorang diri dengan t-shirt berwarna putih, jeans, cekak putih bermain gitar akustiknya menyanyikan lagu ‘ A song for a Fool’. Kemudian mereka telah nyanyikan lagi sekali lagi tetapi kali ini dengan semua ahli. Ia sangat hebat! Lirik telah dipaparkan pada skrin jadi semua peminat turut menyanyi. http://www.sendspace.com/file/jiblaz .

Yong Hwa : Saya sudah menitis air mata 3 kali. Pertama di showcase, dibelakang skrin. Kedua apabila saya tamat menulis lagu ‘One Time’ dan ketiga pada hari ini semasa di rehearsal apabila menonton video ini buat kali pertama. Jadi kenapa anda tidak nangis? Tidakkah ia menyentuh perasaan? (merajuk)

Kami menjerit, “Kami nangis!”

Jung Shin katakan bahawa jangan percayakan tangisan Yong Hwa, dia seorang pelakon. Peminat telah menyanyi bersama pada semua lagu dan saya juga telah menghafal semua lirik Korean, English dan juga Jepun. Ahli-ahli CNBLUE terkejut dan gembira. Apabila Jong Hyun mula nyanyikan ‘Sweet Holiday’, peminat turut nyanyi bersama, Min Hyuk sangat terkejut hingga dia tersenyum lebar. Peminat juga telah nyanyi bersama-sama lagu ‘Lets Get it Started’ dan ‘Umbrella’. Pada lagu terakhir iaitu ‘One of A Kind’, di tengah-tengah lagu hanya drum saja dimainkan,ahli-ahli CNBLUE yang lain berhenti dan member ucapan. Yong Hwa mengatakan,”Min Hyuk, boleh awak kata selamat tinggal?”, Min Hyuk tetap bermain drum, “Hak Hak semua!Hak Hak saya sayang kamu!” Ia sangat comel dan seksi dan telah membuatkan semua peminat gila. Selepas menyanyi, ahli-ahli CNBLUE telah lap peluh mereka dan baling ke peminat-peminat. Kemudian mereka bergabung tangan dan menjerit “Mari mati bersama-sama!”. Kali pertama saya lihat mereka pada krismas tahun lepas waktu shooting MV mereka ‘Im A Loner’. Pada waktu itu saya dapat lihat mereka secara dekat untuk 5 jam. Saya sangat terkejut kerana mereka sangat tampan. Jadi saya ingatkan saya tak perlu terkejut dengan ketampanan mereka sekali lagi, tetapi hari ini saya terkejut sekali lagi. Mereka lebih matang, berkebolehan dan lebih kelakian.

Di tingkat dua belah kiri, ibubapa Yong Hwa, abang lelakinya dan ibubapa Jong Hyun dan kakaknya. Di belah kanan pula, ibubapa Min Hyuk dan kakaknya, ibubapa Jung Shin, 5 ahli kumpulan FT Island dan bekas anggota Kwang Jin. Mulanya itu adalah kawasan kosong tapi diletakkan 20 kerusi. Kerusi biasa semuanya dipenuhi peminat, tidak satupun digunakan syarikat rakaman. Yong Hwa asyik mengenyit mata dan member bentuk ‘heart’ kepada ibubapanya. Yong Hwa mempunyai muka yang serupa dengan ibunya. Yong Hwa mempunya wajah yang keanak-anakkan manakala abangnya mempunyai rupa yang lebih matang/kelakian (4 tahun lebih tua). Ahli-ahli yang lain tidak memberi apa-apa tindak balas/gesture pada anggota keluarga. (Jong Hyun tidak memanggil Appa). Semasa keluar saya dapat lihat kakak Jong Hyun dengan dekat. Dia lebih tinggi dari saya, mempunyai wajah yang sangat kecil dan mata yang sangat besar. Dia sangat cantik saya ingatkan dia seorang selebriti. Jong Hyun mengikut raut wajah bapanya. Peminat juga mengatakan kakak Min Hyuk sangat cantik,kulit lembut dan sangat asli. Dewan AX kecil. Ini pasti konsert terkecil CNBLUE. Saya sangat gembira dapat bersama pada hari ini. Konsert selepas ini akan 10 kali lebih besar. Saya tertanya tanya bagaimana mereka progress setiap hari.

Yong Hwa mengatakan pada hari ini, “ Adakah anda masih ingat janji kami untuk menjadi kumpulan pemuzik bila bergelar atuk? Saya tidak pasti kami akan ke mana tapi anda harus pergi dengan kami hingga akhir!”

Saya pasti konsert mereka berjalan dengan lancar dengan melihat senyuman di wajah mereka. CN Blue mesti merasa teramat gembira kerana tekah berjaya menyelesaikan konsert pertama secara lansung mereka yang pertama di Korea bersama-sama dengan persembahan yang menakjubkan.
