Neo Zone albums | How It’s Made | Johnny’s Communication Center (JCC) Ep.17


Hello, JOH-FAM We’re out here in a Hwaseong-si
to see our album getting printed The album name is NEO ZONE I’m here to make sure our
album is in the zone We are here with…
Can I have your name? – Brad, you can call me Brad
– Brad, Brad? Oh We’re here with Brad today, he is gonna
explain how the process works Brad can you explain
a little something… Where are we going into right now? We are moving into the factory
site how we produce a CD Okay This is the initial stage of
the mastering Hello Well actually this is
the first stage of the process what we called a
mastering & stamper making It’s a very fleckless with some absolute fleckless and we apply
some photo resist on it and we have to encode the signal
into the LBR, Laser Beam Recorder Laser Beam Recorder Yeah, that is exactly determines more
than 50% of the final quality of the CD Oh, more than 50%? More than 50% In the first process? Yes Okay, wow And then we metalize it,
than you can see something like this Oh, so you put this in.. Application of the photo resist,
and then, this is the metalized glass The metalized glass Eventually, when we punch it inside and
outside, we test it with the verifier That’s the verifier? Yes, that is what we do here in
the mastering & stamper making process This is only the CD part, right? CD part, yes So no music is inside there right now? Actually, everything is here Already? Already When does the music go in Yeah, and from the LBR station,
every music, every signal is there Oh, already? In the first step? Even though you cannot play it Oh, okay. That’s interesting So, what happens in this room? In this room, actually as I told you
before,first I have to download, convert, edit, gendering and
playable master CD, that’s what we do here
right in the small studio Wow,
so this is where you bring the master CD and make sure all the
music is right kinda… And is that our album? Yeah, that’s your album, N version So, did you listen to our music? Sure, of course What do you think..? I’m 51 years old, what do you expect? I mean like, it could be good Perfect Yeah, perfect That’s the answer I wanted to hear,
thank you It’s perfect and actually,
it’s very entertaining Oh, really? Even from my age How long have you worked here? 25 years 25, you must have heard all sorts of,
all kinds of music Most of them, most of them From the debut album of the NCT,
I heard that everything From the beginning To now, wow You’re like,
you’re the history of music in Korea Yeah, it could be What’s your favorite album that
you’ve printed? Do you have one? NCT of course, don’t ask Hear that? We’re here in the part with
they make the master CD, He’s been here for 25 years.
He has seen a lot of CDs I asked him a question,
the most important question, ‘Which CD that you’ve burned
or you’ve made’ ‘or replicated is the best
ones and the finest?’ ‘NCT’s’ Guys, we did it We’re gonna go inside the
replicating the CD, part now Eventually what we do is we
need to go into the replication site The CDs we buy on the market is
not a burned CD, it a replicated CD Oh, of course Do that there, master CD,
you start making it in there And you replicated in there Exactly Wow So this is where we start replicating CD Exactly, this is the replication site From the injection molding machine,
the intermediate handler takes out,
cools down from the conveyor belt, I will show you This is what we call ‘The blank CD’ Blank CD, there’s nothing in here? Everything is already here The music and everything
is already there? Even though it is not playable Under the high pressure,
high voltage and high vacuum level, it applies the aluminum layer on it So that the laser beam can be reflected Oh, because of laser beam
doesn’t reflect, it’s not able to play, but because if you put
those aluminium on, it makes it able to play So actually after this process,
everything is okay, but one thing more important
is that we need to protect the signal,
we need to protect the aluminium layer, so we apply the record over here If you see it right over here,
you can see some liquids applied, and then spin off, that’s a
protective layer And then it moves into the UV
station to cure and stable and dry Oh, that process is very short, though It is playable, so actually
everything is already finished Okay Except, cosmetic work Almost the most important part Yes So, what happens in here? What happens is that we
need to make it more beautiful even though the CD is already finished It is able to play right now
but we need to have the statics Is this where you
make like the printing? Printing? Yeah Yeah, this is the printing
to make it more beautiful, this is the first stage of the
six printing, only the white color over here, and then moves up,
to the next stage – So, this is the first color?
– Yes White, wow And this is all you need? These 3 colors? Only 3 colors for this album Solely designer’s concept,
we only follow and we only respect This is actually very interesting We need to move it to
the packing and wrapping Packing and wrapping Oh, thank you And after the conveyor,
the other end is the final process Oh, so everybody has their own step Oh, they have a protection thing in N version today, only? Only N version today When it moves, you can put only one My god Everything It’s too fast Wait, wait I’m gonna put in 2 Oh my god Isn’t this too fast? I’m
gonna start sweating soon And this table is too small,
you gonna get a bigger table Somebody definitely got 2 stickers,
I’m gonna say that And I’m done, this one is for me We have a CD right over here,
so like she does She is fast You can do it She’s really fast I think I got it,
it’s all about the rhythm Someone is gonna get
an album where I’ve made it I make this up You have to feel the rhythm Hey, Johnny, you need to make it right Oh Make it pretty, it’s my album Make it pretty Let’s see, let’s see,
let’s see where my picture is Wow, I came out good, how pretty And I think it’s pretty good It’s beautiful, even the color,
everything is beautiful Have you ever seen an
album like this before? No This is the first time, this is the best First and the best Put a random photo card here,
one for each So we are here to put in the photo cards Getting nervous of thinking about it I remember taking this picture Here, here Just put it, just put it, it’s okay You’ve missed it Hey guys,
this could be a lot of Johnny’s today Yes, it should be You might getting
a lot of Johnnys today I think I am getting better at this A lot of Johnny’s, let’s go Johnny Okay The table is too short Yes, you are too tall Okay, this is the final stage Making our album This is for the individual,
so these are all 5, 5, 5 I think I’d be pretty good
at working here I think so, do you want to apply? Only one 1 more? Oh, for the one But, it’s pretty good, pretty good I’m gonna hug this one A lot of our blood and tears went into this
album, the one I hugged is gonna go in here I wish I could hug everyone Do I just close it? This way? I’m done, thank you so.. Okay, JOH-FAM That was my wonderful experience, seeing how our album gets printed
and made from step 1 to the final step I’m very proud to say that I was at least
a part of 1 box, maybe a half of box Maybe actually just only like 1 album,
but anyways, what a great experience We only do the process before
that and after that, you know? We make the music,
we write the lyrics and then we start making the performance,
we record everything and that process itself is wonderful
experience as well, but to be the part of the middle
process of making the album is actually in a way of kinda touching, just to know that the quality of
our albums is gonna be top-notch that actually makes me very,
you know? Strong inside, I just wanna say thank you to Brad,
he is not here right now Oh, thank you Brad! With pleasure Thank you Brad Thank you for everyone
who is the part of this album, definitely would not
have been made without each and every one of you and
you can’t forget your fam and citizens Yes I hope you guys enjoy the album,
‘NEO ZONE’ All of the songs are really good, we already can’t stop listening to them,
even though it’s our own songs I hope you guys enjoy it Thank you Peace out JOH-FAM
