Jung Yong Hwa Fever!
Korea’s netizens are no joke. Continuing their Jung Yong Hwa fervor, he again topped the search sites after the 11/5th broadcast of You’re Beautiful. The top 3 searches were his group name, CNBlue in Korean and English, and Kang Shin Woo. Jung Yong Hwa was 5th on the search list.
His group, C.N. Blue (Code Name Blue), had been in Japan studying music and practicing as an indie band when Jung Yong Hwa was cast in the kdrama. The group consists of 4 men, from F&C Music, which is the same label as F.T. Island. The rest of the members are still studying and performing in Japan, and Jung Yong Hwa plans to return to Japan after completing You’re Beautiful.
The group had performed mostly underground, working clubs and even hitting the streets in Japan. Jung Yong Hwa is on vocals and guitar on the band. They plan on having their Korean debut in the first half of next year. Their first mini album, Now or Never, was released on 8/19 and the 2nd mini album, Voice, is scheduled to be released on 11/25.
Because they have only been working in Japan, most of the information on their sites are in Japanese. Interestingly, they exclusive sing in English. (Not sure if they’ll continue to do that when they debut in Korea.) Here’s a sample of their 1st mini album below or you can listen on their myspace site.
As a virtual unknown, there has been rumors circulating about him as well. Recently, there was a rumor that he was Jung Kyung Ho‘s (Smile, You) brother, before it was cleared up. Hahaha. They do look a little alike actually.
