Haven’t seen scans of this Japanese magazine around. Or I missed them? Anyway, I decided to make you envy my owning it. CNBLUE on cover! There’s a folded poster (A3) and even the DVD has their picture on it. Just too bad the X10 mini CF isn’t of any better quality then the one from SE site. >,< Lucky that a D.C. fan has shared the 1080p TV cut before.

I love the sub-heading of the cover story – Brightest Hope of Coming Year!
That really shows how they have impressed music lovers in Japan. I’m staring at the pic and title right now with mixed feelings, however. As there’s news about the possibility of their postponing the Korean album release to focus on acting (Yonghwa most probably but the news mention all the boys too.) Can I take back my Christmas wish now? I didn’t mean I expect their putting music aside when I said I want to see Yonghwa in a drama sometime next year! That’s a bad idea. So their company (or the boys) have given up promoting band music to Koreans? If it means they’ll still put a lot of effort releasing Japanese albums and doing concerts in Japan, I’m more comfortable with that. But the words Yonghwa said winning MMA (that they won’t forget their first intention) are still ringing in my head. I just feel uneasy. There are comments around saying fans should support their decisions, blah, blah, blah … but supporting the boys doesn’t mean liking whatever they are doing or whatever is going on with their careers. If what I’ve said makes sense …
I can’t say I know much about the Korean entertainment world (nor Japanese one), but I just don’t think their management has helped them at all for their achievement so far. The only thing they’ve done right has been leaving the boys in Japan doing street lives on their own before their debut. This particular management knows nothing about marketing, nor PR management. I just hope they won’t do anything stupid to ruin these boys’ careers.
My new year wish: CNBLUE bring even more awesome music to the world.
