[Scans|Partial Trans] Awesome Vol. 14 : CNBLUE Lee JongHyun
Q: With uplifting melody, various kinds of instruments, claps, and inserted voice “hoo~!,” Foxy is full of uplifting elements. It is a very attractive song. As for lyrics, it leaves impression that a man is obsessed with a sexy woman. When seeing the lyrics only, it seems like Yonghwa’s composition. haha
JongHyun: Ah, it may be.
YongHwa: Wait, Is that my image?!
JongHyun: It is, no? haha
Q: YongHwa would escort ladies better and JongHyun would be a bit shy.. This is just an impression that people may have. haha
YongHwa: You see? It’s not like I’m a playboy. Yes, I do better.
JongHyun: (bitter laugh) I did write it with fun. Lyrics too, it’s a funny situation, isn’t it? Although the genre is different from that of songs I’ve made before, but I found it interesting to write.
Q: Monster’s lyrics is also unique. Jonghyun, your composition seems to have grown wider recently. Do you challenge new genres consciously?
JongHyun: I don’t really care about genres.
YongHwa: Jonghyun makes rap.
JongHyun: Oh, yes I do. I have liked hiphop.That’s true. Since every genre has its own strong point, I find it interesting to combine those strong points. What is important is to make good songs, not genre.
Q: What is your favorite song in Wave album?
JongHyun: Of course I have attachment to every song, but if I choose one, I choose the last track, "How awesome." Even if I do say so myself, I write the lyrics very carefully.
Q: It has a strong message.
JongHyun: Yes, it is about ourselves. I wrote about our daily life, performing live everyday.. To live this way itself is wonderful. I titled it "How awesome" in this way, and it can be a message to fans, too.
JongHyun: I want to try bass. In the end, band’s ability depends on bass. To understand band better, I’m still learning to play drums and bass.
Q: Your new song seems to be about a man chasing after a sexy lady. Are you like that too?
JongHyun: Do you mean my relationship style? I don’t chase after woman (says in a very direct way). But I like sexy woman. I think what “sexy” means differs in each of us members, but I like woman who are confident. I think woman who are confident are sexy.
