130412 [News] CNBLUE: Press conference for Blue Moon 2013 World Tour in Singapore news compilation

CNBLUE returns to Singapore for their Blue Moon World Tour Concert 

12th April 2013, Singapore - K-Pop band CNBLUE touched down in Singapore earlier last night for their upcoming Blue Moon World Tour that is scheduled to take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on April 13th and it looks like the members are all in good spirits today, as they made an appearance at the press conference in the afternoon. Comprised of four members namely Jung Yonghwa, Lee Jonghyun, Lee Jung Shin and Kang Minhyuk, CNBLUE is widely known for their band performances as well as the unique style of music they pursue.

Not their first visit to Singapore, CNBLUE expresses that they are really thankful for the huge turnout of fans who came to the airport to welcome them when they arrived. The members felt that Singapore is a clean city accompanied with beautiful night scenery. With Singapore being the second leg of their Blue Moon World Tour line-up, CNBLUE added that they are anticipating the concert as much as the fans and have prepared fresh performances from their latest album.

 So what can the fans look forward to at the concert in Singapore? Yonghwa answers spontaneously, "We are just going to have lots of fun tomorrow. We need to enjoy ourselves in order for our fans to have fun and enjoy the concert together."
"We have a little wish, and that is for the fans to go crazy with us, scream their lungs out, and get really high during the concert", added Jonghyun.

It has been more than two years since the band last visited Singapore for their showcase. Now that they have returned for a full-fledged solo concert, the band was bursting with excitement and can't seem to hide the joy as expressed across all of the members' faces. While witnessing the growth of their musical journey, CNBLUE shares about their feelings of holding a world tour, "First of all, we are very thankful that people are recognizing us as a band now. Of course, during our debut days we started off as a rookie band and not many people could recognize our music. We are really grateful and honored to be standing at where we are now. As we've been through hard times together, we are appreciative of what we have now and we truly believe that CNBLUE is here because of the strength and support our fans have gifted us."

CNBLUE is also known as idols who starred in several drama projects and are active in the acting field. When asked about their drama/movie participation, the members mentioned that they are open to take on any roles and are willing to challenge themselves with various drama characters if opportunity allows. Yonghwa goes on, "We believe that the art of music is part of delivering our performance as an artist. It helps me to better express myself in terms of music and acting. Reflecting on the two previous dramas I have filmed, I believe that I could show myself as a brighter person for the next project that I will be involved in as I am a very cheerful and bubbly person...and I'm funny too!"
Minhyuk continues, "We are in the midst of preparing for our world tour at the moment. I do receive a lot of scripts from drama producers, but right now I would like to focus on the world tour first. However if there is a good opportunity for me, I will definitely go for it."

In differentiating themselves as a band from other K-Pop groups, Yonghwa voiced out, "I think we are part of K-Pop, but probably the difference and our biggest strength is that we are a band. Unlike other K-Pop idols who sing and dance at the same time, we produce a lot of our own music."
"We believe that our foreign fans like our music because to them, band music is like a common interest. Also, there are not many groups that made their debut as bands in Korea too. Maybe that is the reason which makes us stand out as a band", explained Jonghyun.

Before the press conference came to an end, CNBLUE brought out special gifts that they have prepared for the medias who asked them questions, and briefly shared that those boxes contain traditional snacks from Korea which they used to enjoy with their family members during festive season. With such kind intentions, it was not a wonder that the band has received much love from the fans and public since their debut.
Will you be attending CNBLUE Blue Moon World Tour Concert in Singapore tomorrow? We hope you are, because a whole line-up of exciting performances will be in store for the fans.

CNBLUE: "What Sets Us Apart Is That We're A Band"

CNBLUE at Singapore Press Conference

 CNBLUE Kicks Off Singapore Leg of World Tour With Press Conference

Singapore.  This small country is the privileged earlier stop of CNBLUE's Blue Moon 2013 World Tour.  Right after flying into the country for their concert this weekend, CNBLUE met with the press where they were their most candid selves.  Right before the high sun of noon, CNBLUE spent a bit of time answering questions.

Singapore has been one of those hot areas for K-pop recently, having hosted many K-pop acts that included the biggest names in the Hallyu wave such as BIG BANG, 2NE1 and the SM artists for SMTOWN. Naturally, while CNBLUE's concert tickets quickly sold out in Singapore, it is easy for a newcomer to K-pop to not understand the hype and think easily that it's just another K-pop band.  At the press conference, leader Jung Yong Hwa made it clear by saying, "We are different because we are a band."  "There are not many bands in Korea. So that makes us special," lead guitarist Jonghyun later added.

It looks like CNBLUE really is making that impression, uniqueness due to being a band, stick.  When asked whether they would take up acting projects again, drummer Kang Minhyuk, who starred in a high-rating drama recently, revealed that while he wouldn't turn away good work his focus this year will be their world tour. 

The last comeback for CNBLUE was their Korean album, RE:BLUE, which offered a brand new color and their own compositions featured. Putting much emphasis to live performances, the band confirmed that for their world tour, they are letting go of the stage frills of changing wardrobes and the like, "Our focus is on making good music, so we will not be changing outfits a lot", they revealed.
CNBLUE will be having their sold-out concert at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, on Saturday, April 13th.

CNBLUE Wishes Fans to Jump, Sing and Go Crazy at their Concert Tomorrow!

Boices (Fans of CNBLUE) can expect a good time at their concert tomorrow, for the boys will be performing songs mostly from their new album, Re:Blue. 

They have been to Singapore a couple of times for showcases and fan meets, but the upcoming concert happening tomorrow at the Singapore Indoor Stadium marks their very first full-fledged concert here in our sunny island.

While fans will not be able to see all the fancy costume changes, expect all live performance instead. ‘We are a band, so you will see more of us playing instruments and hearing our voices,’ said Jung Yong Hwa, the leader of the band.

After a successful concert in Taiwan last week, Singapore is the 2nd stop for the Blue Moon World Tour and they are happy to see all the Singapore fans. For their Taiwan stop, CNBlue met up with local singer, JJ Lin, who went to watch their concert. They even took a group photo backstage which Lin posted on his Twitter. 

Jung was fast to point out that the T-shirt he was wearing was actually a gift from JJ and when he heard JJ is from Singapore, he felt that it was a token of friendship for both countries. 

 “There isn’t any particular Dos or Don’ts at our concert, but we are here to have fun for our fans to have fun. I have a small wish is for the fans to go crazy, jump, sing and to really have fun!” Jung commented. 

 Many might not know that they boys started out at street performers, playing in clubs and bars before they debuted and rose to fame. The down-to-earth musicians are not only thankful and grateful to the fans who supported them, but because of the hard work prior to the fame, they are appreciative of what they have right now. “Hopefully we can go playing on the streets again, maybe with a mask to hide ourselves!”

Besides playing as CNBLUE, the members are also quite active in dramas and shows. “We are in the midst of our world tour now, I’ve received scripts for shows but for now, we are mainly focusing on our world tour, but if there are good opportunities, I’ll take it,” said drummer Kang Min Hyuk.

“I believe I can be brighter in my next acting as I’m a very bright, cheerful and bubbly person! Imma funny guy!” Jung joked.

“If the opportunities arises, I would like to take on a new role,” Lee Jung Shin commented, who plays the bass guitar in the band. 

Also, expect lots of singlish like ‘lah’ coming from the boys tomorrow as they picked up very fast when DJ Ken taught them how to use it.

“Thank you lah!” “I’m very happy lah!” were some of what they said before the press conference ended.
