Press Conference of Blue Moon 2013 CNBLUE World Tour Live in Kuala Lumpur

CNBLUE was on tour in Malaysia recently and I was lucky to attend their press conference at Grand Hyatt Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 23rd August 2013. I think most of you know who CNBLUE is but for those who aren’t, it’s a Seoul-based rock band and they truly rock! Wakakaa.

I came from Johor Bahru by bus. Yup, 4 hours plus journey. Thankfully, I found my way to the hotel in time!

So, when I arrived, firstly, the guests need to register themselves and check whether their names are in the list so they can get their media passes.

They were a lot of people waiting outside before we can go to the press conference room.

We were then asked by one of the staff for the event to go to another section.IMG 5029 Press Conference of Blue Moon 2013 CNBLUE World Tour Live in Kuala Lumpur

I thought we were going to the press conference but it seems they want to fill our stomach first which was a great thing because I was really hungry!

Eat, eat, eat!

Okay, so after breakfast, we went to room 102 where the press conference was held.

CNBLUE haven’t arrived yet so everyone just took pictures of the backdrop or selfies. Hehe.

They took some time to arrive but understandable because I’m sure they are busy.

And when there was an announcement that they are arriving soon. Everyone had their cameras ready.

Okay, now I’ll post some individual pictures and introduce them as well.

Here’s Jung Yong-Hwa who does the lead vocals and play the rhythm guitar. Honestly, I think a majority of people in the room came here just to see this guy.

Lee Jong-Hyun who plays the lead guitar and also do vocals.

And lastly, the youngest of them, Lee Jung-Shin who plays the bass. And yes, they all do vocals.

And so they started by greeting the people there with “Apa khabar?”. LOL.

Among the interesting topics that were discussed there, when CNBLUE was asked if they have tried the food there yet, Kang Min-Hyuk mentioned that ‘satay’ will be the number one thing that he will try.

Besides that, Lee Jong-Hyun was revealed to be a Judo gold medalist in high school. And he said that he doesn’t need to use his skills because of the security team. Hehe.

It was also mentioned that Lee Jung-Shin was a runway model for fashion events.

So, there were more questions and answers. You can watch the press conference itself below:

This is only part 1, do check the other parts in YouTube. Thanks to joshuaongys.com, the video is his.

So the press conference went well. It wasn’t long, about 1 hour but it was fun. The funniest part, I think, is when one of the audience asked that since Jung Yong-Hwa and Lee Jong-Hyun were successful singer-songwriters, what about the others. Kang Min-Hyuk replied that they are still learning and Jung Yong-Hwa is teaching them and they usually edit songs together. Lee Jung-Shin had a big smile during that moment. Haha.

Okay, some random pictures here.
