[Scan | Trans] the FNC Magazine No.1 Interview: Lee Jonghyun


The most drastic change for CNBLUE lately has been the move from Yeungdeungpo to Gangnam. In the previous dorm, although we had a living room, we mostly spent time in our own rooms. Now, in our new dorm we have big large living room space and I am pretty happy (laugh). Hopefully, we will have many good fortunate moments because of our good moods set by the new dorm.


If I had the opportunity to be a reporter, I would want to ask such a question: “What is your main reason for being involved in the music industry?” my real reason is because I want to be somebody who lives by doing what he desires most passionately, this is part of my destiny. (He means doing music is his destiny.)


I am not a couch potato and am used to doing activities all day along. I can do martial arts and used to do stretching as basic exercise everyday. The problem is, even If wanted to train everyday, my CEO and others advise me not to do so much training because they’re afraid that I will injure myself. So, recently I just do weight training (to control his weight). Actually this is a secret but I have “king abs” (means six packs, in Chinese character king=王). Other people probably do not notice it but I have a good body to show off (laugh).

“I want to be a great guitarist even though I am getting older. I keep trying to let myself flow as the world does.” (He means that he hopes to be a person who is able to adapt and still be professional.)

I have done music and acting recently, even though my time is very limited. Doing both improved my skills and has given me a lot of possibilities for the future. In music for instance, I started out knowing nothing about it but what I do makes me feel challenged and I’m glad to have this opportunity. I feel that I need to keep on exploring my basic skills because both music and acting are actually quite fun. Still I think that my real roots are in music. The guitarist that leaves a deep impression on me is Eric Clapton and just like him, I want to be a great elder guitarist. I try to keep going as the time changes and more importantly, to be a good-looking man as well, haha.


“If I looking back my life time until now, it feels like I win a lottery, good fortunes come one after another.”

In the past, I used to think “acting is not my field”. Nowadays if I thinking back again, music and acting are two big things that have entered my life like the lottery thus far. I only just wanted to focus on doing music and when I first made the leap to the acting field as part of a drama cast, I felt strange and completely lost.

Since we debuted, we four experienced difficulties performing in front of the audience. As the time goes by it became easier and through acting it becomes even easier. Actually, through acting we have been able to promote our band to the audience so people who did not know CNBLUE have begun to acknowledge us and have started to listen to our music, that is a good point.

Right now, all four of us are doing both music and acting, it makes us look good (because we have more self-confidence). Up until this day, I do not know what people think yet, but I hope they will say, “Very good”.

I really want to learn about acting from the experienced senior actors and crew. As a Busan native, I loved the movie “Friend”, that movie was starred by Jang Donggun senior and is another reason I felt it was an honor to act together with him (Jonghyun referred to ‘A Gentleman’s Dignity’ as he starred with Jang Donggun). The impression during drama filming was fun; I would like to say “pretty good” right from the start-up to the end of the drama.

OK, so there was Mr. Lee Jonghyun’s interview…wow is he a comedian or what? He’s so humble and so lovable it kills me yet he’s so damn funny like when he said he wants to be an elder guitarist meaning he wants to be successful and make music until he’s an old man but then he adds he wants to stay handsome!! HAHAHA, he knows he’s hot and so freaking good looking right! Ugh I’m so happy that he’s so confident and greasy hahaha. Like how he says he’s got ‘king abs’ LOL… but didnt he admit not too long ago that his six pack turned into a 1pack? LOL… waaaa you gotta love Bruning Lee Jonghyun, cuz I know I do <33
