I have started to like CNBlue since Oct 2009 from their Japan underground band to 2010 Korea debut, and after 6 months, Asia Tour had actually apppeared in front of my eyes… Other than agitated and unbelievable feelings, I felt proud as a Boice.
This is my first time to Taiwan NTU Sport Center to watch a concert, not sure is it because of the limited space, the queue to entrance was not really efficient. It was already 30 minutes later than the scheduled time after all the fans were seated, hence it was not because CNBLUE started late, but was because Boices have simply not able to enter. While waiting, I almost fall asleep because of busy workload recently and yesterday worked until 11:30pm, then today went to work first before seeing CNBLUE, just when I thought I could took a nap…
The light suddenly dim! But I did not realize because I was closing my eyes. I was awaken by the shoutings! Immediately awake because of the strong feel! Following up… was Intro melody, CNBLUE appeared in front of my eyes! Have to admit that all 4 of them are handsome~ Their gestures are full of charms! After a strong opening, followed by “Let’s go crazy”~ Yonghwa asked everyone to stand up to HIGH together~ After standing up, the fangirl’s board in front of me 3 rows just nice covered my eye contact between me and Yonghwa, I had no problems to see Jungshin on the left, Jonghyun on the right and Minhyuk on top. To see Yonghwa completely, I have to bend a bit to see through from the holes~ haha! The third song is Love Revolution, just like the previous Asia Tour fanaccounts, Jungshin really sang a lot! It was also great to see him trying his best to sing! This child was trying to show his charms by stepping on the amplifier~ But I have to say~ Jungshin ah~ I laughed every time when he tried to do it! Then Yonghwa was really handsome, doing it once~ ha
In between CNBLUE used English to self intro, when all of us were busy shouting, Yonghwa said a whole chunk of English, in the end everyone was ignorant to what he said, and Yonghwa was also laughing embarrassedly! But very fast, he said a few more lines to warm up the atmosphere! Today’s Jonghyun let me feel surprised. He seems to be very relaxed and more lively as compared to on variety shows, kept doing expressions to the camera at a side. As for Jungshin, he’s cute as usual, Minhyuk was really handsome in person! The 4th song was I’m A Loner, the degree of singing along was needless to say! Overall chorus was super HIGH! The 5th song was Love Light, Taiwan Boices lightsticks support aid appeared at this time. Originally was blue ocean, 2nd level used orange light sticks to arrange TW ♥ CNB. Everyone turned their head towards 2nd level at the prelude, the four of them must be wondering~ Why everyone were looking behind, haha! Personally I think the ♥ in the middle was quite well arranged~ Ha
The 6th song was Love. Before this song, Yonghwa was trying to hint everyone to shout Encore, in the end everyone started shouting. The most funny thing is Yonghwa immediately used his hands to show X, say NO NO，next! All of us are too impatient, Jonghyun was obviously giggling at one side. Love, this song made all of us really high~ the whole floor was vibrating! Invincible shaking was just nice with the excitement! After singing Love, the four of them left the stage, waiting for everyone to keep shouting Encore. To tell the truth, we used too much energy to sing “Love” together with them, totally locked our throats! Then letting us to shout for so long, we shouted Encore 3 times from the start to shouting CNBLUE, then change to 3 beats clapping to support our throat, finally the long-waited had came! Interesting things come again…
Yonghwa used English to tell everyone not to stand up later once he went up the stage, because the stage will shake and so it’s very dangerous, in the end, everyone only hear the key words, and immediately stand up, causing all four of them quickly explained and using handsigns. Yonghwa and Jonghyun immediately acted out a small skit to tell the fans that the stage will toppled if they stand up. For their beloved CNBLUE, all of us sit down obediently. To me, this is a good thing, because the fangirl whose board was blocking me that I mentioned in Part 2 also sat down~ haha!
Encore song started of with rock version’s I’m A Loner+One Time, this segment was really rock, I love it toally! I deeply felt that Yonghwa had put in a lot of effort into his singing without reservation. Continued by Now Or Never, was their debut first song, hence had special feelings when hearing it. The first time when I heard it last year, I thought that Jonghyun’s guitar solo was jjiang! Today heard it once and yes, it was really marvelous, really falling in love with Jonghyun once again! He’s handsome when playing guitar, cute when looking at screen singing, relaxed and lovely when interviewing. Isn’t this a bit too excellent?
Something that needs to be mentioned was the cameraman was at Jonghyun’s side for almost the whole performance, and finally to Minhyuk’s side, the whole area was agitated like something really happened. Small Minhyuk was positioned at the back, very hard to see him. They should have ask a cameraman to stand there.
Because read the fan accounts for Hong Kong and Singapore previously, thought that maybe the encore will end here, so when I was feeling sad, Yonghwa turned back to say some words to Minhyuk, oh my god…. Black Flower this song started! Is a last minute added song, can feel that not only Boices were excited today, the four of them were really happy~ After singing Black Flower, they sang Voice too, I was really touched and felt like crying, because this 2 songs were my favorites! Voice this song was mostly sang by Jonghyun alone, so Yonghwa started to move on the stage! Really seducing! He is a child who totally know how to hook fans soul~ Using his eyes to kill people, then later jump around on the stage like small kid, letting people not to not love him (hitting heart)。Yonghwa threw his pick down the stage almost to the end of the performance, aw~ I really envy the person who caught it…
In conclusion, the live performance part, CNBLUE is definitely a strong band! Don’t be limited by idols’ looks, the whole performance strength was sufficient, chemistry in between members was awesome, Yonghwa and Jonghyun’s singing were good, and talented, Warner kept saying what 1st sportsman band, flower boy band! Instead of this, why not emphasis on their music ability~ This will definitely be the hits~ LIVE is really HIGH!!!!!!
Originally thought that the interview segment will be the benefits for those specially picked fans, so I did not anticipate much, but the 4 of them’s behavior gave me countless of surprise, in between Ken Wu’s interview, the four of them really lively interacting with fans, kept trying to imitate Ken Wu’s talking Mandarin, and they said it quite fluent, really cute! If Jungshin was being bullied, he will sit up straight and he will whine with his eyes~ oh yes! During the interview, when Jungshin was preparing to talk, Jonghyun waved his hands and then Jungshin’s microphone hit his mouth real hard, oh my god! That must be really painful~ Jonghyun immediately hug Jungshin and kept using Mandarin to say sorry, a funny resolve Though I still think is painful~ Then this kid secretly used water to rinse his mouth, maybe there’s injuries on his mouth. Minhyuk is really good to fans, he will smile to the second level occasionally. In addition, CNBLUE’s impromptu Beatbox and Acappella is really beautiful, they added in all the Mandarin words that they know into the song, it’s really amazing! During the interview, we had countless of agreements of “must come back to Taiwan for concert”, the boys also learn to use Mandarin to keep saying this sentence, though is a pinky swear across the stage, it is really a warm feeling agreement, I will be waiting for you to come for concert! Must come!
The last 7 lucky fans, take turns to go up stage to let CNBLUE grant their wishes, including hugs and signaging… sob sob, really envy! The most interesting one was a mother carrying a small kid up the stage, the small kid was about5 years old~ he is also a CNBLUE fans! Upon going up the stage, he immediately fall into Jonghyun’s arms, and also sang 2 lines of Love, so cute! Jonghyun also asked the mother whether can give him the child, haha! Luckily the mother was rational enough to say no, if it was me, I might say yes~ haha! And also, another fans asked the four of them to write encouraging words on his Korean book, I thought that this was good, a very valuable memory and meaningful. Yonghwa is like writing a letter, I can only say that that female is really lucky~ I can only dream about it in my dreamland! Jonghyun serenade “I’m Yours” to one of the fans, this benefit is acceptable, because it also indirectly benefits us, haha!
After watching live, my love for CNBLUE became stronger! Watching live is really different, if you like CNBLUE too, you must watch their live at least once, no matter what. Looking forward to the next one and will not miss it! CNBLUE Taipei mini live was a success!!
