Many have asked where the word “BOICE” came from and what it means. So, since this page is going to be all about BOICE. Let’s talk about it. =)

FNC released a statement with regard to the Top 5 Choices for CNBLUE’s Fanclub Name at their Official Korean Site. At soompi, Lyna expressed her opinion with the first five choices for CNBLUE’s official fanclub name which were “Blue Mate”, “Blue Moon”, “Blueholic”, “ID Blue”, and “Blue Chip”. Quite randomly and out of the blue, she said that “It doesn’t have to have “Blue” in it to be certified as CNBLUE’s fans… Like Big Bang “V.I.P.” or 2NE1 “blackjacks”… We could be VOICES, the only instrument you can hear but cannot see… We are their Voices… their instruments in music… their inspiration for singing…. I just thought of that since they have an Album titled “VOICE” Many soompiers supported her idea. Since she is the administrator of this site as well, she decided to ask the cnbstorm followers what they think of “Voice” as a fanclub name. She got positive some responses. But, she was hesitant since she didn’t know what the outcome of her suggestion would be. She wanted to keep silent and let bygones be bygones. But, that was not the case, if you know her (for those who know Lyna’s personality), she isn’t the type to keep silent and let things pass by with regret. She believed that there’s nothing wrong with voicing out her opinion. Others viewed her as too bold to step into FNC’s decision and some even found her disrespectful towards them. She believed that we should have submitted “Voice” beforehand when FNC asked for suggestions. But, if cnbstorm followers remember, we were promoting the name of the site as the fanclub name during that time. Lyna never even thought of disrespecting FNC, rather, she was trying to help them decide what could be the best fanclub name for CNBLUE. It’s only a matter of how people view things – positively or negatively.

A petition asking for reconsideration to add “Voice” in choices for fanclub name. Please check this post for further information.

It seemed like FNC heard our request. They released another statement with regards to CNBLUE’s fanclub name asking for fans to suggest names without the word “blue” in it. So, that was the time when we fully campaigned for “Voice” to be the fanclub name. Below is the meaning of “Voice” for CNBLUE’s fanclub name.
목 소리 (Voice)
“Voice” is the major instrument of communication and music. Fans would like to be the instrument and inspiration of C.N.BLUE in creating their Music as well as communicate with them by supporting them and their music.
“Voice” plays an important role in conveying messages and makes a powerful effect in music. It is thru our voice we sing. We can sing without musical instruments like guitar or violin but we can’t sing without our voice. It completes a song or musical piece, adds beauty to melody and significance to the lyrics. It is thru our “Voice” that we can speak our minds, express our feelings and communicate with others. It is thru our voice that we are able to make friends and tell people we love them.
C.N.BLUE (Music) = Fans (Voice)
C.N.BLUE sings for fans and fans love them and support them and their songs. A song can’t be complete without a voice. There is voice in music and music is expressed thru voice. C.N.BLUE is here for the fans and the fans will always be there for C.N.BLUE. The two will always go together. There are no fans without C.N.BLUE and vice versa. We are always connected. We are “ONE”.
With one voice, C.N.BLUE Fighting!
By the way, VOICE in Korean is “Moksori” =) It sounds cute…
19 April 2010
FNC gave the 2nd Top 5 Choices for CNBLUE Fanclub name which are “Blue Nation”, “Boice”, “Dear”, “Decoder”, “Make Me High (pronounced as Mecca)“. We were really surprised when we found out that they changed “Voice” to “Boice”. How come? First, there is no letter “V” in Hangul and BOICE is derived from combining “Blue” with “Voice”. Since the voting is done at a Korean site, most voters were Koreans though some of us managed to vote as well. Eventually, BOICE won in the voting.
23 April 2010
Yonghwa announced through his message at their official site that BOICE is now CNBLUE’s fanclub name as he greets everyone a day before their 100th day debut. And he really likes the name. Sometime later, FNC officially announced thru CNBLUE’s Official Site that BOICE will be their fanclub name. So, I guess April 23 is BOICE Anniversary as well?
