FT Island, CN Blue get ready to take on U.S. crowd in Los Angeles
“It’s a dream come true to be able to perform in the United States,” said Jung Yong-hwa, leader of CN Blue. “We know that the musical taste in the United States is of the highest quality, and we have no doubt that the American fans will have a good time.”
When asked what strategy he uses when performing for foreign audiences, Jung simply said he tries to enjoy himself. “If we are having fun on stage, I know that the fans will have fun, too. I’ve been to many countries, and despite the language barrier, I’ve come to realize that music unites us all.”
Lee Jae-jin, bassist and vocalist from FT Island, said he believes that his group’s biggest appeal is simply about where its members come from. “The emotions in our songs, which stem from our Asian heritage, will set us apart from American bands,” he explained.
