CNBLUE's First Comeback since Military Discharge with "RE:CODE"

On Nov. 17, 2020, CNBLUE released their first album as a three-member group, titled "RE:CODE."

Member Jonghyun left the pop-rock band in August 2019 due to his connections with the Burning Sun scandal, as well as for receiving backlash over inappropriate messages towards a YouTuber.

"RE:CODE" features the title song "Then, Now, and Forever," which member Jung Yong Hwa composed and wrote. The rack conveys the complicated emotions of getting through our daily lives while handling someone's absence.

Following its release, CNBLUE's latest album ranked first on iTunes Top Album charts in 10 different countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, Turkey, and the Philippines.

"RE:CODE" also landed within the Top 5 of the iTunes Pop Album charts in 15 regions including the United States, Japan, and Australia. It even hit No. 1 in 11 of these regions.

He continued that it took them a while to find the direction they wanted, as well as their musical style.

Minhyuk added that "RE:CODE" was made through finding a good balance between the three remaining members.
