Press Conference Sessions

Before the conference began, the emcee has introduced a little about the Korean wave, Hallyu and regarding CNBLUE. The Seoul-based rock band, consisting of Jung Yong-Hwa, Lee Jong-hyun, Lee Jung Shin and Kang Min-hyuk then arrived into the press room and greeted the media members with “Apa khabar?” and “Kami ialah CNBLUE.” The members then introduced themselves to the press members.

Quite a number of questions were asked during the press conference. Below are some of the questions:
Q: How do you feel about Malaysia so far? Probably about the weather or the food?
A: The weather is just like Korea right now and we are here for our very first concert in Malaysia. So we have so much expectation and we are so looking forward to it.

Q: Have you tasted the food yet?
A: I would try “Satay”. Satay will be the number one thing I would like to try.

Q: Yonghwa, you have written many tracks for CNBLUE, so how do you get the inspirations when writing your song?
A: It’s not like I plan it, these are inspirations that just come naturally depending on the environment around me. Sometimes I get inspiration for the lyrics and sometimes I get inspired for the music/melody.

The Emcee then said that hopefully his stay in Malaysia can inspire him. Yong Hwa then spontaneously sang, “Oh Malaysia..this is my nolstalgia.”
Q: Jong-hyun, you were a judo Gold medalist in hugh school, so can you take on a bad person when you’re in a top situation?
A: Well, now I have a lot of security brothers around, so I don’t think it’s necessary for me to actually take action.

Q&A by the members of the floor:
Q: Both Yonghwa and Jong-hyun are successful singer song writers, what about the maknaes?
MH: Usually I take notes on the lyrical idea that I get but we are still in the learning process. Yong-Hwa is teaching us pretty much. But we usually edit songs together. So whenever we are doing work together I get to learn more things. So by the time when we reached their level, maybe we will have some songs written by ourselves.

Q: What inspired the name BLUE MOON for your tour?
A: Blue moon only comes once in a while. Since it’s going to be our very first world tour, we want our tour to be special. So we named it Blue Moon.

CNBLUE members were given a token of appreciation after the press conference session.
