CNBLUE member Jung Yong Hwa talked about the recent trend of idol romance
KBS 2TV’s “Mr. House Husband 2” broadcast on September 16th showed Jung Yong Hwa having a meal at CNBLUE member Lee Jung Shin’s house.
While eating, Jung Yong Hwa said, “I heard this not long ago. If male and female idols go to a hair shop at the same time, they would exchange phone numbers using AirDrop”, adding that idols would secretly send photos with their name and numbers.
He continued, “You should turn on AirDrop, too”. However, Lee Jung Shin bitterly said, “I didn’t receive any file”. Jung Yong Hwa agreed, “We didn’t experience such things”.
Earlier on the 11th, Jung Yong Hwa appeared in a video titled, “Sanghwa’s male friend Jung Yong Hwa has visited!!”, on the YouTube channel “[Kangnami]” and revealed behind-the-scene stories of when he participated in MBC’s virtual marriage program “We Got Married” in the past.
Recalling the filming site at that time, Jung Yong Hwa said, “First of all, people thought it was all an act. There was a script, but we did not know that”, adding “We started sitting on a couch. We don’t say anything. They don’t tell us what to do. It’s all up to you from that point”.
Jung Yong Hwa formed a virtual couple with Girls’ Generation member Seohyun on “We Got Married”. Despite being a virtual couple, they even had couple rings, and the story of when Jung Yong Hwa lost his ring while doing CNBLUE performance is still famous.
Jung Yong Hwa said, “It’s all up to the two people. Taking a cab, taking the bus, everything’s up to you. Both of us were busy at the time. We barely slept back in the day, like 2 hours a week, seriously”.
CNBLUE is a three-member boy band consisting of Jung Yong Hwa, Kang Min Hyuk, and Lee Jung Shin. They officially debuted in Korea on January 14th, 2010 after releasing an Indie album in Japan in 2009. The band topped music shows after making their debut with the title song “I’m A Loner” and entered their heyday.
