the fnc013


The most drastically changing within CNBLUE lately is because the movement from Yeungdeungpo to Gangnam. In the previous dorm although we have living room but mostly we are spent the time on our own room. Meanwhile in our new dorm we have big large space of living room, I am pretty happy (laugh). Likely there are many good fortune because a good mood by the new dorm.


If I am happening to be a reporter, I want to ask such a question: “What is your reason involved in music industry?” my real reason is I want to be somebody who lives by doing his desire passionately as part of my destiny. (He means doing music is his destiny.)


I am not such a couch potato and used to do activities all day along. I can do martial art and used to do stretching as basic training everyday. The problem is even I want to train everyday CEO and some of the people advise me not to do so much train because they afraid I will injured myself. So, recently I just do weight training (to control the weight). Actually this is a secret but I have “king abs” (means six packs, in Chinese character king=王). Other people probably do not notice it but I have a good body to show off (laugh).

CNBLUE is he himself.



“I want to be a great guitarist even tough I am getting older. I keep trying to let myself flowing as the world does.” (He means that he is a person who able to adapt and still professional.)

I do music and acting recently, I think if the time I have is too limited. But doing both improved my skill and gives me a lot of possibilities in the future. In music for instance, I really think that I am nothing but I do feel challenged to have this opportunity. Because if I keep on explore my basic skill, both music and acting are actually quite fun. Still I think if my real root is music. Guitarist that leaves me a deep impression is Eric Clapton and just like him, I want to be a great elder guitarist. I try to keep flowing as the time change and importantly to be a good-looking man as well, haha.



“If I looking back my life time until now, it feels like I win a lottery, good fortunes come one after another.”

In the past, I used to think “acting is not my field”. Nowadays if I thinking back again, band and acting are two big things who come like lottery in my life, thus far I just doing music and when I made a first leap in acting field as a drama cast, I felt strangeness and completely lost.

Since we have debuted we are four experiences difficulties in reunited audiences. With the time goes by it becomes easier and through acting it comes even better. Actually, through acting, people who do not know CNBLUE begun to acknowledged and start to listen to our music (so then we could promote our band to them), that is a good point.

Right now, we are four doing both music and acting, it is looks good (because we have more self-confidence). Up to this day, I do not know what people think yet, but I hope they will say, “Very good”.

I really want to learn acting from experienced senior actors and crews. As Busan native, I love “Friend” movie, that movie had starred by Jang Donggun senior that is another reason I felt honour to act together with him (Jonghyun referred to A Gentleman’s Dignity he starred with Jang Donggun). The impression during drama filming is fun; I would like to say “pretty good” right from the start-up to the end of the drama.

the fnc004



A place I want to visit the most for holiday is Fiji, Guam. Sometimes ago my family went for holiday and they kept shown me off about how beautiful it is. But why they had gone without me? (laugh)


Because I have never been visit Guam, I am so envy. If only there is a chance, I want to go with my whole family. I am rarely spending time with my family so I want family holiday.




During my childhood, my elder brother had English and Korean course while I had drawing, clarinet and piano. Even though I learn a little English but my focus on art and sport, I even went for vocal training. These should be my mum did not see “academic interest” in me so she picked those kind of courses for me.




When I was a trainee, the hardest time for me was the moment I have to stay independently and separate from my family. There was a time I thought about giving up. Every time that thought occurs my parents will come from Busan to Seoul to reassurance me. Asked me to thinking back and carefully before made a decision.  When I am playing around with my friends, my parents always said to me not to forget to prepare my future well, those times were over in my twenties. If only I do whatever I want to without thinking properly maybe I become a loser right now.

“I want to keep playing music even I get older”


CNBLUE is groove pop rock band. Of course we are not stick with this kind of style but in 2013, I hope we can proof our colour more than previous years. Despite I, myself who likes many genres so I keen on to make a different colours (many genres of songs), we need a clear style tough (one dominant style so that when people listen to the song they immediately recognize it was CNBLUE’s song even tough the song probably has different style). I think find our true colour is a main CNBLUE’s vision in playing music. For the long-term plan, I want to be vocalist who able to sing a song for a long time. Also, I want to keep perform on the stage along with the other CNBLUE’s members. I keep thinking positive, it gives a big help in my musical industry. With the power of positive thinking, I will show the better CNBLUE’s image.





“I remember it was 2010, January 14th


During ‘You’re Beautiful’ and ‘Heartstring’ drama filming I do felt a good atmosphere because both of the drama casts were almost the same age with me. ‘You’re Beautiful’ was quite fun. Hongki and Geunseuk hyung are pretty funny; we are three looked good on set. Even nowadays that drama is still popular overseas. Since it was my first drama, I have no high expectation. It leave me a deep impression, when I watched the drama for the first time its premiere my friends called and said, ‘it’s strange to see you used standard language (did not use Satoori).(laugh)


Everyday became pretty interesting because people starting to liking me as “Milk Boy” or “Towel Boy”. My second drama, ‘Heartstring’ boasts his popularity on overseas. Many had asked, ‘didn’t you felt disappointed since in Korea the rating is quite low, but I am satisfied enough when the drama ended and during the drama filming every casts keep thinking positive and push each other, an unforgettable drama. I heard that drama nicknamed “#1 Korean drama in Taiwan. At 2012, I want a free time for myself, some fans asked me, ‘why you didn’t do something?’ but I need some time out after 3 years nonstop working. I never composed song in relax and now I enjoyed the time a lot. During those times I composed about 20 songs. Since I composed for Juniel and AOA and for CNBLUE itself for sure, I am sure I can show the better image. It was exactly what I felt that day, 2010, January 10th.





*the fnc magazine’s editor note’s*


Jung Yonghwa posed on camera naturally. That day he just back from Chile, having very long flight, it was about 30 hours, jetlag and no sleeping yet. Maybe, because it was his first single shoot after quite a long time, rather than shown his tired face, he looked more nervous and excited at the same time. We will show you another Jung Yonghwa’s charm. Although he was a bit nervous with 5:5 hair style, unconventional fashion and meet the staff for the first time but the clumsiness had disappear in just a wink of time, every time we meet he always said, “I’m Jung Yonghwa” (he always introduced himself politely). Judging from what we heard later on, he shown off photo-shoot result to the other members and he had nice sleep that day.


At the moment we did a photo-shoot on set we were keeping mumbling ‘wow, he’s really good-looking!’
