And sunbaenims keep asking is to come out for a drink. Definitely we get easily tempted when we get handphones. Although we used public phones to go out and play when we didn't have handphones. Even if we have our own schedule and go out we call our members and drink together in the end.
We enjoy drinking to a certain extent. We had group dinner after a concert but he drank without eating properly the whole day. There was an interview the next day and Seunghyunnie opened his eyes and couldn't move his body. They said it was serious dehydration.
Maknae Minhwannie is easily touched by hyung's word and cry when he drinks. One member was drinking with japan rock band friends and vomited a lot in front of the toilet. Korea and Japan rock band took the mop and cleaned the floor together. It was really funny. All members point to Jaejin Jaejin: I went on dates with normal people but never went into a relationship.

But because we're busy and there's a lot of overseas activities, the relationship don't last long. I'm too into games these days that I don't have time to meet.
I think Jonghun has similar experiences as me but he meets well without getting caught.
FT Island's Seunghyun admits to feeling an inferiority complex to CNBLUE ~ Netizen Buzz
When we start dating, we tell and share everything. And the rules that our team made is 'Lets not clash girls' and 'Lets not get our parents involved in work' we've been keeping them well so far.
They are older even though they are juniors. Seunghyun almost became a CNBlue member so he's friends with all of them. We are more like friends instead of senior and juniors. We were really happy when CNBlue did well. But because we are our company's first singer there were lots of trial and errors. Since CNBlue is the second the company was more careful with them.
We were slightly upset when we saw that. First always has some sadness'. How do you rate them as a person. We were also like 'why would things that we didn't do become rumors?
So they don't even go out of the house these days.
