[VIDEO] 101012 Yokohama FM Radio - KPop! Now


DJ : … (omitted), CNBLUE made an appearance yesterday. Please enjoy it…
First of all, I’d like to ask how do you compose your songs?

Jonghyun : I get inspirations after watching TV and movies. Yonghwa Hyung..when it rains..
YongHwa: I do lot of writings [when it pours].
Jonghyun: He’s the rain man.

DJ : Yonghwa the rain man? So, you said you like to compose a song when its raining so i guess in times like that you wish that it will continue to rain. Currently K-POP is booming, what positions do you think wouldCNBLUE be?

Jonghyun : We want to be a really successful live band. We also want to do live street performance in Korea.
Member : Yeah, we want to do that.
Jonghyun : Really.. I want to.
Yonghwa : But there would be many fans flock around…

DJ : Right, live street could be dangerous when there’s too many fans swarm around. So, you said you want to be a successful live band. Then, in korea or Japan where would you like to perform live? there are also many questions asked on where you could see a street live show in Korea.

Member (? ): Hongik..
Jonghyun: Hongdae and …
Yonghwa: Gangnam, Apgujeong and … Ilsan ..
Minhyuk : Ah.., Ilsan.
Jonghyun: For Japan I’d like to perform in front of the train..at the station..
Yonghwa : Shinjuku .. In Japan, Shinjuku Station … in Korea …
Jungshin : Mullae Station (other members laugh )
Jonghyun : It’s our..
Jungshin : … house is there.

DJ : In Korea it’s where they live, in Japan it’s Shinjuku station, so what would happen if they do shows in this places? It might be awesome if that truly happens. CNBLUE will come back to Japan on Oct 28th for their fanclub event, so what kind of live performance will they be doing, we’re really looking forward to it.

[TRANSLATION] CNBLUE Article in TV Guide Magazine

They went to Japan to study about music, for 6months lived in Japan while doing performances, then debuted in Korea this January, CNBLUE.

Their modern rock music received great response, starting a new wave and in a sudden sweeping the Korean chart, at #1.

Jonghyun : Whether it was live street performances or Live house concert, we were aiming for more than 100 performances in Japan. It was a good experience to directly feel the audience response. It can be considered as our foundation for us today. Though it was hard carrying all the heavy equipments to the live spots.

Jungshin : One of the memory in Japan was once we lost our rooms keys after doing a performance. So one member had to go to the apartment above us, and ask for his help and went in from the veranda. If we think about it now, it was quite reckless to go down from a 5-storey high. (laugh)

Minhyuk : when we were hungry and had no money, that was the kinda time when we wished to go back to Korea. (laugh)

Leader Jung Yonghwa also filmed for a drama You’re Beautiful, an actor and an MC and now also active in many variety shows.

Yonghwa : I enjoy everything that i do, but of course I feel the most happy when doing music. Although making a song or practice always goes late into the night, but because i love it, i think it’s reasonable to do so.

So what are the future expectation for this group with outstanding teamwork?

Minhyuk : Like Rolling Stone, i want to continue until we become a Haraboji (grand pa) band like the 4 of them.

Jungshin : Our own personal dream and also from the music side to be realized, will it be possible?

Jonghyun : i want to perform in a rock festival like summer sonic, with many other artists. (The Summer Sonic Festival is an annual two or three-days rock festival held at the same time in Osaka and near Tokyo)

Yonghwa : To perform live in Tokyo Dome. I also want to be the best in Japan.

“This is a present from a fan. I take it everywhere with me and take pictures”
He said, recently, all four members and the manager moved to a bigger place.
“Minhyuk is always the one who cleans” the members said all together at once, it was as if, whether the room clean or not depends on him.
The type he likes : “A person who is comfortable like a friend, I like a girl like Jeon Ji Hyun who speaks her opinion frankly without sensing someone.” (hiiiing~ T_____T)

Lee Jungshin

“Jungshin is really tall, though it’s great, he’s actually weaker than he looks. I wish he exercise more often” said Jonghyun.
“Ok i get it… Besides height, there is nothing special about me,” Jungshin said.
Jungshin : “But Jonghyun till now still hasn’t fixed his saturi, so i wish he tries harder,”
Jonghyun : “.. ok i will”
Ideal type : white skin, a girl who looks good with a baseball cap. Hair? Long or short doesn’t really matter.

Jung Yonghwa

“Even when i’m on the move, if i think of a melody, i record it straight away. I also do composing in the room. and i enjoy doing it” said Yonghwa who loves to work.
He would like to come and play freely in Tokyo, “I want to shop in TOPSHOP“.
Ideal girl type: feminine and cute, have a good personality, doesn’t like to lie. A girl who only loves her boyfriend. (not sure how to phrase this one, so that’s a direct trans. i think he meant, won’t love another man except her boyfriend)

Part 2 : Hanako Interview

Yonghwa who is in charge of vocal and guitar received great interest even in Japan through his role as Shinwoo in the Korean drama ‘You’re Beautiful’. Rather than an actor, he’s actually a member of the popular band CNBLUE.

The magazine photoshoot was at the same day as SBS Inkgayo live show where Yonghwa was active as an MC. When he came after the broadcast finish, the joy that the show gave still remains with him. “This is just the beginning, i will try to work harder to be better” he said with a smile.
We let him knew that the staff came for a visit, “Really? Where were you? from there? That means it was very far from where i am!” he said suddenly looking like a normal boy, his surprised and embarrassed looked was very cute.

Advancing to be a top star, CNBLUE.

Becoming the model for the Korean cosmetic brand [Holika Holika], the shop in Myeongdong is filled with signboard and posters of the 4 man.
“But we don’t really notice it. Actually, we don’t really do long walk in the streets these days…(laughing)” said Jonghyun, who played guitar and also vocal. He used to have a long hair but after cutting his hair short, he looked more friendly and gentle.
answering the questions he explained, “these days we don’t have time to practise for live shows”

After the success of their first live concert, the four man currently in the peak of their Asia tour. In Aug, Hongkong, Singapore, in Sept, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan and next month China.
“Did many fans Japanese come to support you?”
“A lot of people came..” from here on, Jonghyun started speaking in Japanese.

CNBLUE, before debut in Korea active in Japan as in Indie band group.

While living in Tokyo by themselves, they needed to bring their own heavy equipment around doing more than 100 live performances. Jonghyun‘s own composed song ‘Arigatou’ (Thank you) was written in Japanese, and the song they performed in Japan, Now or Never and Teardrops in the Rain also appeared in their Korean album in Korean.

Talking about CNBLUE, of course their best selling hit in Korea this year ‘I’m a Loner’. The two vocalist strong gaze onto the camera while singing and through the impressive melody expressing the grief of losing a loved one.

Rare to see a guitar band in Korea.

They bring a unique sound just like in the 60′s, this young man anxiousness and romantism can be felt.

Such strong gaze into the camera, strategy to bewitched the girls?
“That’s what a band is! In the broadcast, the camera followed us, it’s a bit nerve-wrecking, the only thing to do is to look straight into the camera” said Yonghwa. Furthermore, the tall slim members grace the stage with their well-fitted suit.

Do CNBLUE do sports?

Jonghyun: “No. We don’t have time to exercise now. Our muscles are hiding now”

Yonghwa : “Rock bands have always been skinny. So we’re heading that way. A muscly man playing in a band don’t really look good”

Jonghyun: “yeah. Just a well toned body. I like that”

The youngest in the group, Minhyuk and Jungshin are the same age. The two in charge of cleanliness in the apartment where the all 4 of them lives. Out of the four, they said Minhyuk is the best in cleaning.

Jungshin : “Me and him are roommate, i like that we’re together. I hope we will be always in the same room together in the future (laugh)”

Minhyuk : “Haha. Jungshin listens well to my story as a friend and he also gave me advice on my problems”

The drummer and bassist who is in charge of CNBLUE rhythm part, even though they’re the cute little brother but they’re also the one who holds up the group.

Meanwhile, the senior team…

Yonghwa : “I hope Jonghyun do more cleaning”
Jonghyun : “Ei.. Yonghwa hyung, u’re not in a place to say that~”
Yonghwa : “Aa~~ My face packs. You use it as you please! Those are expensive!!”
Jonghyun : “hahahahaha”

The conversation continue like this…

A cool image on stage and in the MV but at the same time an honest and straight forward attitude, the best 4 people. From here then on, please give much support to this promising artists.
