[ARTICLE] World Grows Smaller for Boyband CNBLUE

0

Since their 2009 debut in Korea, CNBLUE have been one of the few rock bastions in the ultra-competitive local music scene dominated by danceable electro-pop.

Their lasting success has comforted some about the continuing mainstream appeal of rock, while detractors have accused them of packaging innocuous poppy sounds, even calling them a “fake band.”

At a recent interview with the four members, front man Jung Yong-hwa, bassist Lee Jung-shin, guitarist Lee Jong-hyun and drummer Kang Min-hyuk, seemed to weigh in little on the controversy, which has been their biggest asterisk since they began.

Rather than theorizing or rationalizing about their career, the barely 20-somethings reveled in it with ample humility. Sometimes, even they were at a loss to describe the reason behind their success.

“Compared to when we were touring (East) Asia with the single ‘Love,’ (from their second EP ‘Bluelove’) nowadays K-pop is riding on a much bigger wave,” said Jung, adding that their audience and fan base have expanded thanks to the collective expansion of Korean pop music in the last year. “The stages are bigger for us. Most of our fans used to be in their 30s or 40s; now we have more in their 20s or younger.”

[SCAN|TRANS]CNBLUE Moment Vol.3 in “Steady” Magazine May Edition

0

Today is been a long while day off….

“What will you do now?”


YONGHWA – “It may be serious but I want to compose songs

「I want time to make more music! Even if I would spend a time with a girlfriend, I won’t let go of the guitar. And also I would like to go and watch a movie. At that time, will watch the latest and most talk of the town. Though I can hardly get a proper day off, I will do my best if I can secure even just a sleep. Sleeping is the best stress-relieving method.」


JONGHYUN – “Leisurely, I want to listen to music in my room.”

「I can’t hardly make time to do the cleaning. So I want to clean my room. If I would have a girlfriend, though I would feel sorry for her, if she could help I will be happy. For me, it would be the best day off, listening to music, do the practicing in a cleaned room. It’s an effective way to make use of a day off, right? (laugh). Practicing while I’m on a day off, earnest….. But anyway, right now doing music is the best!」



MINHYUK – “How about spending time freely and have fun together with others?”

「Even during my day off, I often spend most of it with members. I like lively and fun time. Relaxation is playing baseball, which is my hobby. If I would have time, I think I want to workout. Though drum is enough, I already make my body move (laugh). A sport is also a different thing, though. Also, sometimes I’m absorb in games, so I’m trying to divide my on and off time.」



JUNGSHIN – “I want to cook and watch DVD”

「When I’m alone, the moment I have the time I would think “I want to sleep” (laugh). If I would have a girlfriend, I want to cook, eat then watch DVD together leisurely. It is my ideal way of spending a day off. If its already been late at night, I’ll take her home! My day off usually end up only on sleeping, so I want to avoid this kind of habit.」

[SCAN|TRANS] CNBLUE Sensibility Dictionary #22 - “Encounter / Parting”

0



出会い / 別れ

【Encounter / Parting】

Speaking of spring it is a season of “Encounter” and of “Farewell/Parting”.

It is not too much to say that LIFE is a repetition of it.

Tried to strike this word to CNBLUE who have lots of day-to-day experience of “encounter” and of “farewell/parting”



YONGHWA - “Once, Twice”

I think it is really a sad thing, to think that a just once encounter can never be happened twice.



JONGHYUN - “Growth”

I remembered the times when we did street live performances.

At that time, there are several encounter, tens of times, also hundreds of times in a day, but then there was a parting.

While we are chasing for our dreams, those people who’s watching us, lea

ve a memory that makes us continue doing live that we wanted.

I think the reason why we have grown this far, because of that encounter and the parting.



JUNGSHIN – “Flowing Water”

Flowing water continually flows while bumping into stones. Encounters and Parting it’s like the same.



MINHYUK – “One way passage”

When there is an encounter, parting comes over by all means.

And after the parting, there is a reunion or a new encounter comes.

And in encounters, I think there is no one way passage, it is everything in this world.

The boys participated in the show’s guerrilla date segment and sat down for an interview with MC Kim Saeng Min. When asked to name the member that has the best body, Minhyuk replied without hesitation, “It’s Yonghwa hyung.”


Yonghwa explained, “I’m working out so that I can bulk up for my future girlfriend.”


Minhyuk continued the praise by adding, “He has an awesome hip line!” Yonghwa protested, “He keeps talking about my butt on TV lately so fans have been staring at it a lot more. It’s really uncomfortable.”


Jonghyun chimed in, “Minhyuk’s butt is completely flat.” Despite the laughter that ensued, Minhyuk marched on with the topic by concluding, “Yonghwa hyung’s butt is lively; that’s why I like it!”
