Then as soon as the intro of the long-awaited debut single “In My Head” started, the fans cheer reached the maximum!! It was wrapped in such a large chorus in the fine weather of autumn sky.
After finishing their live performance of all the 6 tracks (excluding the encore), including three new tracks in their major debut single “In My Head”, the talk session gave the audience the glimpse of CNBLUE members’ real face and they also talked about the roots of music for each member’s music life.
