Top Pretty Band FTIsland + Top Stylish Band CNBLUE, not complaining about hardships of development, secrets of success revealed….
Complete Training and Development
Iron Discipline Towards CNBLUE is Just Love’s Education!
Everyday the four boys could only carry their instruments, firstly going to the practice room in Gangbuk, Seoul, then taking a ride for more than an hour back to the management company in Gangnam, self-reflecting and begging forgiveness; they begged for two weeks until they were given the chance to officially debut. Although the manager harshly treats CNBLUE in this way, he, however, expressed that iron (strong) discipline is true education of love . FTIsland have already been spoilt, so CNBLUE need to be taught and guided well.
Strict Discipline, Manners are Most Important!
The manager saw this and said, “You have no manners!”, making Minhyuk jump up from the sofa and quickly get a drink to apologise to the director. The manager expressed: “Even if an artist has already debuted, manners are still the most important thing. Artists must be requested to comply; it is absolutely not permissible for artists under the company to have the “big-head disease” (T/N: swelling ego, i.e. turning snobbish and looking down on others).
No. 1 Top Band in History That Loses Things Easily
Junior band CNBLUE are not inferior in any respect; drummer Kang Minhyuk is even named “King of Losing Things”! The manager exposed: “Minhyuk has been losing things ever since he was young, especially MP3 players and iPods. The quantity he has lost can almost be enough to open a shop”! When CNBLUE came to Taiwan, Minhyuk certainly lived up to the reputation of “King of Losing Things”; as soon as they arrived in Taiwan last year in September, he promptly left his wallet in the van. If the Taiwanese staff had not carefully checked the van before getting out, Minhyuk would not have even known that he had lost his wallet. Before the concert rehearsal, Taiwanese staff also ‘unsurprisingly’ found Minhyuk’s iPod again!
