G Generation’s 10 minutes With Jung Yonghwa; Singer, CNBLUE’s Leader


Hello to all readers. It’s been a month since promotions ended; finally I got to meet everyone here.

Everyone is aware that CNBLUE has busy schedules throughout the year. In Korea, we are busy with music shows and there are days when we have to head to the broadcast stations early in the morning for rehearsals. Even with the long waiting time between recording and live broadcast, we couldn’t go anywhere before the live broadcast ends. And right after, we have to go to the practice room to start practicing together with our members. There are still Japan activities waiting for us after we ended our promotions in Korea. Also, we are busy preparing for world tour that is going to start next month. So for now, we can only meet everyone in this form of interviews and we hope you would understand.

It’s difficult to find time, including time for composing, for myself because we have to work hard for the preparations. Whenever this happens, I would make full use of the free time I have. I would plug in earpieces and listen to the songs while waiting for the flights. Nowadays I’m hooked with American singer Bruno Mars. My members and I sometimes also discuss and exchange news about music.

If I have a little bit more time, I would exercise. I think no matter what, health is the most important thing. This is why whenever I have time, I would go to the gym to do some weight training to replenish my energy. Workout hours would increase especially during rest periods because this is to prevent myself from becoming lazy. During school times, I am very fond with basketball and I thought the best way to relieve stress is to play basketball.
As compared to “planning”, I think “practice” is more important. In order to practice and work hard towards achieving the goals, it is best to make your own goals and dreams as clear as possible. I am still telling myself not to give up and strive towards my dream of becoming the top/best musician. You might ask me where I got all my energy from, I guess it comes from the mindset of “I have to do the things related to my dream forever.” In fact, I started learning piano at the age of six, and learnt clarinet after entering elementary school, so I came in contact with music naturally. After entering high school, I began composing.

Now, in my mind is all about embarking on CNBLUE’s World Tour. We are able to meet fans from Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, Philippines and many other countries. In these countries, I am also planning to manage my own time there. First is to avoid concert schedules, being able to walk on the streets to experience the foreign countries’ culture. I am the type that is curious and captivated something easily. The most favorite thing is the local people’s lifestyle, their local cuisines or the local stores. I’ve used the same method to gain more refreshing and personal experiences when I had public performances in US, England, Chile and other countries.

I think there’s not a need to start planning what you want to do in 10 years’ time. Of course, firstly my goal is being able to stand on stage together with CNBLUE members even until we have got aged. Before that, I want to achieve first place in America’s Bill Board chart. In fact, this is something that I want to show off. On January, CNBLUE’s 4th mini album Re:Blue has sat at first place in America’s Bill Board World Album chart. Whenever I thought of this, I feel that I am few steps nearer to my ultimate dream and it makes me very happy.

When you are tired of learning, imagine and picture yourself in the future. But before you decide on what you really want to become in the future, you have to think carefully about your capability, potential, and what suits you the most. Asking yourself questions like “what are the things I do that makes me happy the most?” can also be a good way to find out more about yourself.

Earlier today I have a shocking news not bad one but good instead although kinda bad too to me kkk. Yes, as the title above, both of Jungshin and Minhyuk had spotted on the Korea Motor Show! Why is it bad to me? because I was scheduled to attend to the show as well if only there was no schedule conflict and it was my staff who replace me instead. If only I was there probably I can meet them haha *daydreaming*


As seen to the picture, both Jungshin and Minhyuk seems looking at something on the bike and Minhyuk shown it to Jungshin. My friend when I sent her the picture commented, though the guys wore mask both of them seem still shine! LOL

I know she was true, and now I’m guessing did somebody recognize them? I supposed so otherwise there is no picture of them of course, kkk

Actually, my notice is on their fashion. Because both of them just dressed up like the most of their official photo, so is it their stylish just mix and match the color without changing their basic fashion? They have good sense of fashion though, hehe.

I know pretty well that Jungshin is love with all-black style and so it was, he wore jeans, t-shirt and black leather jacket, so young and cool and of course it was also my favorite guys style 🙂

As for Minhyuk he wore, as usual, student style; blue jeans and grey jacket he seems stood up his collar but it was’nt seen clearly. it just how he looks like in most of his photos.

Is there any other thing that caught my eyes? Yes, there is, the rear of the Honda Repsol Motogp Team!!! Omg, it also present there and I was wondering whose bike is it, Dani’s? or Marc’s? Whoever starting today, they are already kicked off the new 2013 championship seasons.
