CNBLUE Give Fans In Singapore A Different Kind Of K-Pop Concert Experience

CNBLUE Give Fans In Singapore A Different Kind Of K-Pop Concert Experience

The sixth stop on CNBLUE’s “Come Together” tour, which began in Shanghai last October, landed at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Feb. 13, and fans were in for a real treat. For two hours, CNBLUE played many of their hit singles for a screaming crowd of 5,000 fans. Singapore has quickly become one of the most popular destinations for K-pop tours with dozens of concerts on the sunny island over the past few years. For the show this past Saturday, however, CNBLUE offered something a bit different from the usual Korean fare. 1. RAW There was no thematic backdrop, no portable stage area to elevate above the crowd, no backup singers or dancers, no guest artist, no fancy costumes, no synchronized dance steps and definitely no lip syncing. Music and vocals were expertly provided by the quartet – bassist Lee Jung Shin, drummer Kang Min Hyuk, guitarist Lee Jong Hyun and lead singer Jung Yong Hwa. 2. SKILL The crowd certainly wasn’t fooled by the band’s flower boy looks, either. Each member can play at least two different instruments, showing that CNBLUE are more versatile pop stars than most of their Korean contemporaries. With the exception of their early singles

CNBLUE Fined $12,500 For Unauthorized Crying Nut Cover

CNBLUE Fined $12

Bad news for Korean pop rock band CNBLUE as a court decision this week imposed a heavy fine on the group and their agency for a copyright infringement. On Wednesday, Feb. 3, the Seoul Central Court finally made a verdict on CNBLUE’s unauthorized performance of another band’s song on Mnet’s weekly music program “M! Countdown” nearly six years years ago. The court fined CNBLUE and their record label FNC Entertainment 15 million KRW (appoximately $12,500 USD) after the band played a cover of the Crying Nut song “Deadly Offside” during their appearance on the music show. Crying Nut’s side claimed the original recording of the song, which was written by member Lee Sang Hyuk for the 2002 FIFA World Cup hosted jointly by South Korea and Japan, was featured on the music program while the CNBLUE members lip-synced.  Though Mnet’s parent company CJ E&M compensated for the use of “Deadly Offside” on “M! Countdown,” more fuel was added to the fire when the same performance was included on CNBLUE’s Japanese DVD album released a year later. While the Court ultimately found CNBLUE liable for unauthorized use of the song on the TV show, they were not held responsible for the
