Mir assures MBLAQ

MBLAQ previously revealed that they used the experience they went through after Lee Joon and Thunder"s leave to help convey the emotions of their new track "Mirror", for they did not have too much experience with love. However, it seems many misunderstood this to mean that the song is a direct diss towards the former MBLAQ members.

In the June 26 episode of "Quiz to Change the World", the MC"s asked Mir, "Is it true that MBLAQ"s new song has lyrics dissing former members Lee Joon and Thunder?"

Mir denied it, and clarified what he meant by saying, "It doesn"t have that kind of intent at all. There are lyrics that say "Don"t go around talking bad about me. I don"t need you," in the song. A lot of people hear this part and mistaken it as a diss towards Lee Joon and Thunder. But these are words that can also be said towards an ex-girlfriend."

Both the former members and the current members have been showing their support for each other, so hopefully the song is not further mistaken as a diss song!

MBLAQ says it feels empty without Lee Joon and Thunder

MBLAQ appeared on SBS radio program "Kim Chang Ryul"s Old School" on June 24 and talked once again about being a trio following the departure of Lee Joon and Thunder.

They explained what had changed: "The car got roomier and our preparation time got shorter, which are the advantages. However, the disadvantage is that it feels empty. There were the times and memories we had shared together in the past. We miss those times."

DJ Kim Chang Ryul asked, "Do you contact Lee Joon and Thunder once in a while?" and they replied, "We contact them once in a while," which is always great to hear!

MBLAQ admits the lines of betrayal and hurt in

MBLAQ addressed the possible mentioning of their former members Lee Joon and Thunder in the lyrics of "Mirror," which is about a lover who betrays and leaves them, during their showcase on June 9.

The lyrics go, "The wound must be bigger because it was you, whom I trusted more than anybody else, you without even saying sorry, you were more precious to me than anybody else, I"m really hurt . . . "

Seung Ho said, "It will translate differently depending on the viewpoint. We want to reveal all the relevant content with straightforwardness, but there were a lot of good memories. I do not want to ruin those. Just think of it as we"re supporting one another," showing that there might be more behind the story, but he would rather maintain a mutually supportive relationship.

G.O added, "I can"t say that the lyrics as a whole were targeting them, but we don"t have a lot of experience in love. So we put in our situation. We unraveled it as a love story." So it does seem the lyrics are in relation to the other two.

"We sing better than those two," he continued bluntly. "So we got more parts. I came to think that now I could finally sing a bit. Of course, though, they dance better than I do," resulting in a taken aback Mir and Seung Ho.

MBLAQ talks more in-depth about Lee Joon and Thunder

During the press conference for mini-album "Mirror" on June 9, the MBLAQ trio talked about their former members, Lee Joon and Thunder.

When asked about member recruitment, leader Seung Ho replied, "We felt like there would be nobody who could replace those friends. We felt that we could fill up [the empty spaces] with the remaining members, so we decided on being a trio."

G.O said, "We thought about substitute members for about two seconds. We felt we could target a niche market because a male trio is uncommon. We thought we"d be able to give off the feel of a new stage."

Unsurprisingly, the boys were asked a lot about their former members, including whether they still exchanged words with them. G.O responded with, "We give and receive our comments like "Are you doing well?" "We will support you," and, "A new album is coming out" using telepathy." Which actually just sounds like they haven"t talked much at all.

He continued, "We probably each had a lot of thoughts for a long time. At first, I greatly denied the reality that there had been no choice but to do that, and there could have been a bit of hatred, but we are all now having only good thoughts. Because we were [doing that], we got to release an album."

MBLAQ has claimed that they have had their heart broken after Lee Joon and Thunder left

News via soompi.com

MBLAQ Say They Felt Emotionally Drained After Lee Joon and Thunders Departure MBLAQ is finally back, but this time without Lee Joon and Thunder.

On June 9, the now three-member group held a showcase for their eighth mini album Mirror, marking MBLAQs comeback after a 14-month hiatus.

During their break, the group experienced rather dramatic changes in the member lineup when members Lee Joon and Thunder chose to leave the group after their exclusive contracts with J.Tune Camp expired last December.

When asked how the remaining three members – Seungho, G.O, and Mir – handled the situation, Seungho confessed, To be honest, we went through an extremely tough time, and it was also exhausting to reorganize everything for a fresh start. But I feel encouraged now that we have our new image.

G.O continued, It was an emotionally draining experience. I escaped the real world and living in a virtual reality, but I am back now. Its a game. If you dont focus on anything significant for a long period of time, you start having bad thoughts. Eventually, you will have to suck it up and do something. I started looking back at my life as I got stuck in that cycle. I think I took love and interest for granted back then. Now I have learnt from my past experiences.

Finally, Mir shared about his hardships, The past six months were difficult for me. I didnt even go out that much. I drove down to the countryside and basically became one with nature.

Meanwhile, MBLAQ is set to hold comeback stages on this weeks music shows, as well as launch other promotions for their new album.
