Orange Caramel, "We Did the Best Out of All the Units, But the 2 Things We Couldn't Do..."

Posted: 04 Oct 2012 08:32 AM PDT


You will automatically feel happy just by looking at them

The one who is responsible for spreading the 'happy virus' is Orange Caramel, a group consisting of three members that come from the girl group After School. When they debuted in June 2012 with 'Magic Girl', we thought they would be a project group that would only promote once or twice and then stop. But for the last two years, they were able to produced hits like 'A-ing~♡', 'Bangkok City, and 'Shanghai Romance' and improve their fanbase.


In addition to that, they've become the first girl group sub-unit to release a full album.

▶After School ↔ Orange Caramel, We Get Confused Too!

Orange Caramel became known for their exaggerated cute expressions and outfits that resemble cartoon characters. With the release of their full album 'Lipstick', the unique concept of the group continues.


When asked what they think about switching their images from After School's sexy charisma to Orange Caramel's concept, Raina laughed as she said, "It's true that I got confused a lot while promoting 'Magic Girl' because the music, choreography and even facial expressions are different from After School's" and "We once had an event. After standing on stage as an After School member, I had to change my outfit backstage and go back on the same stage as Orange Caramel. After doing that for a couple of times, I'm able to adjust easily now."

In particular, the most difficult part was the exaggerated facial expressions. Lizzy revealed,
"At first, those facial expressions were embarrassing. But with that experience, I am now confident in at least my facial expressions no matter what stage I'm standing on."

When asked where their energy to spread 'happy virus' come from, Nana said, "All of us is optimistic. I think our enjoyment on stage while singing will be passed on to the people who are watching."


▶Title Song 'Lipstick', The Reaction is Different!

The album's title song 'Lipstick' was made by Iggy, the same composer of Ailee's 'Heaven' and Seo Yongbae. The members said, "The song was easy to sing, so we were able to sing along immediately." and "We got different reactions from our previous songs. Some liked it while the others did not. But with 'Lipstick', most reactions that we are receiving are actually saying that it's good.

After revealing the stage to be used for 'Lipstick' and the choreography of outstretching one leg and pulling it back, the song shows high addictiveness and foreshadows a storm of people following it.



The album also includes solo songs of each member. Lizzy, who is known for having a lively and pleasant image, attempted a surprise reversal with a calm, poetic and emotional ballad entitled 'Clara's Dream' while Raina attempted to rap for the first time through 'Superwoman'.

Adding on the track list are all Orange Caramel's existing hit songs, making the album a must-have.

▶We Thought We'd At Least Film a Caramel Ad…

When Orange Caramel came out, there were a lot of talk saying that they had a Japanese girl group feel. But right after releasing a single in Japan in May, most of the reactions that the group received were saying that it was 'fresh'.

The members are planning to continue promoting actively not only in Korea but also in Japan.

Though Orange Caramel is the most successful of unit groups, there are still two things that they haven't able to do yet. First, ranking first place on a music chart program and second, being chosen as CF models.

The members raised their voices as they said, "We thought we'd at least film a caramel ad because of our group name but that hasn't happened yet. By any chance, if there's a company planning to launch a new orange caramel product, please choose us as models." They revealed they wanted to relieve the sorrow of not being able to rank first because of an overlap with huge singers with 'Lipstick.'

Lastly, the girls said, "It's true that our bodies are tired because of our back-to-back promotions for AfterSchool and Orange Caramel, but since we are the maknaes, we will cheer up and show you a lively image."

BTOB, ‘Warm’ invitation to Peniel whose hometown is in America

Posted: 04 Oct 2012 08:10 AM PDT


Group BTOB spent their first Chuseok since debut, and the members competed to invite Peniel back to their own house.

It was told that the BTOB members would be spending a happy time with their family during this Chuseok festival. However, Peniel, who was born in America, has no place to go to. Followed this, the BTOB members offered to bring him to their own homes during the holidays, and eventually led to arguments between the members.

A representative from BTOB's agency, Cube Entertainment, recently talked with OSEN, "Peniel's hometown is in America, so he would be spending the Chuseok alone. BTOB members who felt sorry for him, started off with IlHoon who firstly invited Peniel to his house, followed by Changsub, IlHoon and the rest of the members who invited him to stay in their houses too."

Along with this, "Peniel is now in the midst of a happy frustration, and has expressed his grateful heart towards his caring members."

Meanwhile, BTOB is currently active in their 90s promotions with new title song, 'WOW'

'It’s Okay to be Short'

Posted: 04 Oct 2012 01:56 AM PDT

"Drop the 'Celebrity should be tall, handsome and pretty' prejudice"

It's no longer hold true that idols with 8-proportioned height are popular stars. There are still stars that boasts about their perfect body proportion despite being a little shorter. The trend nowadays is no longer to have a tall height, but to have a perfect body ratio. Let's have a look at today's slightly shorter 'Stars who are proud of their golden proportion BEST 10′


'Small head terminator' Won Bin (178cm), Lee Kikwang (170.8cm)

Actor Won Bin is the small head terminator in the filming industry. Even when standing beside celebrities who have small heads, Won Bin would be showing off his glamorous ratio too.

Idol group BEAST's member Lee Kikwang is already famous for his short height. Although he was embarrassed during MBC Variety Program, 'Hot Brothers' for being shorter than Park MyeongSu, his small head, as well as muscles which were grown due to consistent work outs, do not lose out to anyone. To tall actors or singer idol, Lee Kikwang, who has been embarrassed for wearing insoles, their small faces and golden proportion body are the ones that made them idols.

Cheers to CNBLUE’s eternal friendship!

Posted: 04 Oct 2012 01:34 AM PDT

"We also want to be like the 4 (AGD) Gentlemen"

Quartet boy band CNBLUE. There's Jung Yonghwa, the leader and the main vocalist, bassist Lee Jungshin, drummer Kang Minhyuk and there's me, the guitarist. We debuted in 2010 and this is our third year together.

As time passes by, the members get to know each other well and we support each other like brothers.


Me as Collin, and Minhyuk as "My Husband Got A Family" Segwang, who was the busiest.Yonghwa Hyung was given time to rest. In the past, we were the ones who waited for Yonghwa Hyung to come home but now it's the opposite. Yonghwa Hyung would be sending message "I'm alone..it's lonely", mixed with complains and funny jokes, and he's the person that is the most proud seeing us doing well.  

Yonghwa is the brother who is full of spirit. Even though the work he's doing is hard, he rarely expressed what he feels towards us his younger brothers. I feel reassured at the thought of having such a strong older brother.

The person that played the biggest role in letting people know who CNBLUE is of course Yonghwa Hyung. He made CNBLUE known not only by just singing on stages but also by acting in dramas and appearing in variety shows. He's always tired when he comes back to the dorm but he never failed to put on a smiling face to the younger brothers. I always feel sorry when I see his smile but at the same time I am always thankful to him. My personality is blunt and therefore I don't express my feelings well, but in my heart he's always there. Yonghwa Hyung, thank you.

Jungshin and Minhyuk, my two younger brothers are the same too. You are a treasure to me and what we have cannot be changed.

Minhyuk and Jungshin, being the youngest of the team, it must have been difficult. Sometimes it must have been hard for you guys because there are times when the older brothers would be complaining, but the two of you are very matured and for that, I thank you. The drama made us spend less time talking to each other, especially Minhyuk. He had a very busy schedule and spent all his time filming his drama.  

But because of that, our relationship grew stronger. Then one day Minhyuk said to me that he wanted us to be like the 4 gentlemen from "A Gentleman's Dignity". It looked like he was just saying it, but actually he was serious. I've also thought about it, so I was moved (T/N: because Minhyuk also thinks the same).

Not only the two of us, but the other members felt the same way too after watching "A Gentleman's Dignity". "Let's live like those four gentlemen," we said. It would be great if the four of us in CNBLUE could grow up to be great men too, just like the four gentlemen, with  our long and close relationship that we can flaunt of as we live together.


We lived together before the debut, especially in Japan where there was no one else but ourselves to turn to, we get deeply attached to each other. That's why the members think that I won't have a problem acting as Collin in the drama. Since I was also busy filming during the week, so we only meet about 2 or 3 days a week. Before, when I always see them every day, I don't really feel the importance of having them by my side. So, every weekend we would all get together and had our bonding time. Usually, we would joke around, and since we don't meet each other for a long time, I'm glad that instead, we stayed in one room and played together. Even though I don't show it, but deep down inside "I'm really happy", that's what I feel.

After Minhyuk's drama and my drama finished airing, the four of us really wanted to spend time together, but the baton of acting was then passed to Jungshin. He had been practicing a lot and seems to be tensed a lot like I did too, but I hope he will do well. Lee Jungshin hwaiting!

And the same goes to the other members of CNBLUE. In the future too, just like what we are now, we'll build up good memories and we'll look forward to the day when we will not only be known in Korea but also as the world's leading band.


"Music runs in my blood"

I stopped being involved in sports during my high school years, and from then on I started doing music. Being alone as a kid, there was a lot of time for me to think. My parents were both working, so during those time I thought of several ideas and later set up a plan.

The momentum was from there. I made a concrete plan in order to persuade my parents. The educational approach in our house was "take care of yourself", so I had to be very cautious since I would be responsible for all the things I did.

In fact, the first time I said I wanted to do music, my parents didn't like it. So, in the mean time, my mom and dad left me and asked me to think of what to look forward for if I wanted to become a singer and planned about my decision. In short, it's like a briefing for my future.  Silently, my parents started to trust me. From then on I had to try my best for the sake of  the faith and trust my parents have given me.


Music. I had to really practice it, since I started later than the others. I tried my best when I'm at the academy. Now, it's still the same. If someone complimented me by saying "you're really good", I will just shake my head. "I still have a long way to go", that's what I think.

When I started acting, I felt like music still fills the void that acting cannot, that's why music is something that I can't neglect. Acting is something that I need to finish once I started (T/N: like acting in drama, it has a certain time frame), but music is my lifetime companion.

In my mind I wanted to do my best while filming for "A Gentleman's Dignity", so in order to do that I had to practice a lot and I lack sleep. Naturally, I also had to cut down the time for my guitar and singing practice.

That was quite stressful for me. This was something that I have always insist on doing, it's one of my daily routines, which was practicing together with the members. I would be practicing together with the members until 12 in the midnight, and the next day I had to shoot early in the morning. My body was a bit tired, but my mind was a bit relaxed and it still seems more alive. While I attained the energy for the next day, music was my driving force.

I really think that I need to do music steadily. Since I had to practice 4-5 hours a day, my mind is focused on music, so I will continue to do it in the future.

My craving for music deepens from the aspirations that we got through our street performances in Japan.

Our street performances in Japan had pushed our dream that we had before our debut.  Physically and mentally we were very dense, but we did our best towards "the dream". Those days, if it weren't for the passion of music; we wouldn't have this kind of great friendship between us.

I play guitar and would only do the chorus part from behind Yonghwa Hyung's vocal. But all of sudden I had to stand in place of the main vocalist on behalf of Yonghwa Hyung. Hyung was sent back to Korea at that time to shoot for a drama, leaving only Minhyuk, Jungshin and me. The three of us had to schedule all the performances in Japan and had to continue everything. The position was completely longer (T/N: now that he also had to sing as main vocal), and for the first time I was feeling puzzled and even scared. The members and I couldn't believe that we managed to get through that.


Because of that opportunity, I was able to grow more in terms of music. Particularly for my vocal, and I made my own songs that makes me looked desirous. It's really valuable to be able to tell things in making good songs. When someone is comforted through my songs, I'm touched. That was what made me really happy and this feeling is impossible to be replaced.

At first when we started our street performance, no one was looking forward for it. It's an empty street. But we tried to gather fans, little by little until a few thousand seats filled in a large scale venue. Without them there would be no CNBLUE, and I won't even be here as Lee Jonghyun.

I think that CNBLUE can still be here till today because of our fans who love our music. Starting from Asia Tour, we went to Los Angeles in the US and now we have performed in as far as UK. The day has finally come, as it has always been our wish to play instruments and have our voices heard at the Home of Rock. From the start we have always been grateful and I will do my best over the time to become a band that will be loved for many people.

CNBLUE Lee Jonghyun will always try to give the best. Hwaiting!!

CN Jonghyun – Thanks for reading all this while! ♥
