“7℃N” marks the first EP for the four-men band since the release of “Blueming” last April.

The main track “Between Us” was written by group leader and vocalist Jung Yong-hwa. It depicts a man and a woman who are on the verge of starting a committed relationship.

“It’s very pop-like and I enjoyed the process (of writing the song)...There are parts where I am impressed by myself,” said Jung during his Naver V app appearance.

CNBLUE, consisting of Jung, Lee Jong-hyun, Kang Min-hyuk and Lee Jung-shin, debuted in 2009 performing in clubs and on the streets in Japan. Their official debut came in August of that year with the EP “Now or Never,” recorded in English.
