CNBlue is a k-rock band formed in 2009. They are really talented and make awesome music. They started to get more and more success especially outside of Korea. Even though, they have a good success in their own country, it seems that they are more known overseas. They already did concerts in Japan and in the USA which is quite an achievement after only 3 years from their debut. In Europe, they are known as well and we are definitely waiting for them to come and tour. At Japako Music, we fell in love with their music and their charisma that’s why we decided to support them. We really hope to bring them more success in Europe and all over the world because they deserve it. Besides making very good rockish songs, they also make wonderful ballads. Live, you can see that they have fun, they are really good and impressive. They are sharing their passion with the public very well. They seem to have fun together as well and to have built a good friendship. They are sometimes making fun of each other but in a good way that’s why it’s funny to watch their interviews.
Even though they are a rock band, all the members can sing very well and two of them can also rap. It’s pretty impressive to see how talented they are. They always give the opportunity to all the members to sing in the songs or even having a member singing a whole song. It’s really great how they share the spotlights, not only having the main vocalist singing all the songs. And we can say that they are all able to sing very well, without talking about their ability to play the instruments. As members you have Yong Hwa, the leader, main rapper and main vocalist who is also playing the rhythm guitar. He is really handsome and has a great voice. He can do a lot with his voice, he can even rap, he is really amazing. He is also very charismatic and is a good communicator. Then, the lead guitarist and vocalist, Jong Huyn is so good in both playing guitar and singing. He is always smiling and joyful, it’s a pleasure to watch him, because with his smile, he can definitely brighten your day. The drummer and back vocalist, Min Hyuk, who is really cute, has such a sweet voice, we really enjoy to hear him sing, even though he is not singing a lot. Of course, his skills to play drum are really good too. It’s a drummer who is interacting with the public which is something you rarely see. The bassist, rapper and back vocalist, Jung Shin, really handsome too, he has a real presence on stage, he can rap as well as he plays bass. But he can also sing very nicely. How amazing! To resume, those 4 guys are just amazingly talented and full of surprise.
They already released a few albums in Korea but also in Japan. We will only mention the Korean discography to make it easier. They did their first release in Korea in 2010 with „bluetory“ including their hit song „I’m a loner“. A few months later, they released a new mini album „Bluelove“. Then in 2011, they released their first full length album „First step“ where you can find the song „Love girl“. At this time, while they are starting to have success in Korea, they already have a huge success in Japan and they are keeping releasing songs and mini album in Japan at the same time. In 2012, their mini album „Ear fun“ is quite a success. Including the great song „Hey you“. This is the year where they went to America, but also did two concerts date in Seoul, sold out. This year 2013, they offer us a come back with the album „Re:Blue“ which is simply amazing. We are looking forward for more music form CNBlue and we hope you will too!
As a rock band, they are really able to be original, they have their own style, and that’s what we like at Japako Music. They could definitely become huge international stars if they keep on the hard work and good job. Japako Music won’t miss to help them of course. So you really need to check them out! They are worth it for sure, you don’t want to miss the next very successful rock band!
