The Messages of ′School 2013′

 It was completely different from the School of the past.

KBS2′s School 2013 finally met its conclusion, bringing back old memories and leaving behind lingering emotions in its wake. It drew out for all to see how cold classrooms of the present could be, and delved into the reason it had become harder for teenagers and the older generation to mix.
Realistic stories

The drama first drew issues for being relatable with its realistic content. It wasn′t all fantasy, meaning it appealed to students, parents and teachers alike.

It conveyed why students can′t help but become more delinquent, why they′re starting to feel less and less emotions, why students can′t seem to reach the heart of the school and what duties parents must carry out within their families. It let viewers look back on themselves, and set right what they saw of themselves in the drama.

The delinquent Oh Jung Ho (Kwak Jung Wook) especially showed how he had come to be a delinquent not because of his own problems, but because of changed values on the older generation′s part. He showed that students like himself came into being when society started to chuck out those who fell behind and lined every kid up based on a small set of numbers.

The answer was in the adults. The drama emphasized that it was up to the adults to put together healthy families and show their responsibility. Parents are supposed to be in charge of bringing up their children to be kind people. Teachers aren′t supposed to be responsible for making students strong enough to survive in the harsh exam wars, but for building a school that students who have been shunned by their families can turn to.

[Interview Part II] The Three Changes CN Blue Has Witnessed in Its Four Year Career

This is Part II of our interview with CN Blue. Read Part I here

CN Blue′s life 1: Acting

Jung Yong Hwa started acting before his debut, and last year Lee Jong Hyun, Kang Min Hyuk and Lee Jung Shin joined the singer-turned-actor ranks. Lee Jong Hyun appeared as Collin in the popular SBS drama A Gentleman′s Dignity, Kang Min Hyuk appeared in KBS2′s Unexpected You and Lee Jung Shin is currently starring in KBS2′s My Daughter Seo Young.

The trio received favorable reviews for their acting, expressing their characters so well that some viewers even mistook them to be professional actors instead of rookies from a band. Their good looks also helped them garner even more love from their viewers.
Lee Jong Hyun said, "I couldn′t believe my luck. I learned about life through acting. I was busy enough with music, so I kept being stubborn and said I didn′t have time to take up acting also. I think I was making up excuses because I wasn′t courageous enough. Now, I think I′ll be able to see the world with a more relaxed view."

Lee Jung Shin said, "I′ve become more confident through the drama. Confidence really leaves its marks when you′re onstage. We toured Japan in a tour that drew over 100,000 people while I was filming the drama. I became really busy, but I think I was able to express myself better thanks to my acting feats."

Lee Jong Hyun added, "[Lee] Jung Shin changed the most. Only a few people know how hard it is to film a drama and perform in concerts at the same time. Still, he got everything done without complaint. I felt he had become very mature, and I thought it was great. I wonder if he knows how we feel (Laugh)."

"Jung Shin now even makes gestures at the camera (Laugh)," Jung Yong Hwa joked.

Lee Jung Shin explained, "It′s not that, it′s just that I made gestures thinking that I should be of help too (Laugh). I became sorry with the thought that I hadn′t done much onstage up to now."

Lee Jong Hyun continued, "Also, the way I express myself onstage has changed after I started acting. Our role is to help the front man (vocalist) [Jung] Yong Hwa hyung (big brother) shine, but it was stupid of me not to take up acting, as I′ve realized that the bigger we get, the brighter the vocalist shines, and the bigger CN Blue becomes."

[Interview Part I] The Three Changes CN Blue Has Witnessed in Its Four Year Career

Let′s turn back time about three years. Like now, the K-Pop scene of 2010 had been overridden by idol music, and their music was the mainstream, reigning above all other genres.

The four-member band CN Blue, however, made an entrance and changed the direction of the market. This band, comprised of a vocalist, guitarist, bassist and drummer, was an anomaly in the eyes of the younger generation at the time.
Thankfully, the band was able to draw interest thanks to its interesting resume. Jung Yong Hwa, who had appeared as band member Kang Shin Woo in SBS′ You′re Beautiful, turned out to be the leader of a real band, and the band had also debuted in the Japanese indie scene before it made a major debut in Korea.

It took a while for their music to be acknowledged. The band was first hindered by its members′ flower boy looks and the limits music shows in Korea had in letting them play their own instruments live.

Their sincerity toward their music was even passed up when their debut single I′m a Loner, written by Kim Do Hoon, became caught in plagiarism claims.

CN Blue, however, never stopped trying to persuade the public through its music. Since its debut in 2010, it released a studio album, four mini albums, including its most recent fourth mini album Re:BLUE, a special album and its brand song Friday.

Jung Yong Hwa wrote lyrics and songs for every album, and member Lee Jong Hyun also helped perfect CN Blue′s brand of music. Doubts on whether they could play their instruments well were quieted through many performances held inside and outside the country.

The four members enews recently met at FNC′s new office in Cheongdam were completely different from the boys they used to be. They were more confident, and gave off a brighter energy. They wouldn′t stop smiling when they were led to talk about their music, and their eyes shone. The members opened up on the three biggest changes that had hit them in their four years with band music.
