CNBLUE's latest release "Bluelove" has been topping various music charts in Taiwan including G-Music and Five Music's weekly charts.

Mostly recently, the album's title track "Alone" has been sweeping Taiwanese mobile charts including the prestigious Taiwan Mobile and EMOME.

CNBLUE (Code Name Blue) released two singles in Japan before breaking into the local music scene in January with their mini-album "Bluetory" and released their second mini-album "Bluelove" in mid-May, both of which have fared well in Korea.

They have been on tour in Asia since late July which includes Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
