I like them since…..
Never i expect to become a FAN of any Korean group / K-POP . They have this trend in our country (Philippines) like SUJU, SNSD, 2NE1, 2pm etc but I never got to that extent on becoming an avid fan ( I’m only focused on Korean dramas) until i found CNBLUE.
It all started in Heartstrings ( Festival/ You’ve fallen for me). This drama is one of my favorites. I became interested seeing it on mysoju.com (come on! music lovers!) Also, wandering on news feed of FB and incidentally watched an MV of it convinced me that it’s a MUST WATCH drama! The 2 members of CNBLUE (Yonghwa and Min hyuk) are in the cast of HS. Most of the tracks was from CNBLUE because the lead was Yong hwa who played Lee Shin. My Min hyuk sang My star in that drama also. ♥♥♥ It’s just sooooooo amazing !
After that.. I search for CNBLUE on youtube and became a BOICE ( fan of CNblue) and eyesmile (fan of minhyuk).
Why I love them?
First, I admire their humble beginnings as an indie band in Japan. ( that’s why they know Nihonggo and english well ) They never gave up. The passion of performing music drives them to the top. Now, They are becoming famous in Asia. the Blue Storm concert is ongoing. (Oh my gosh! I hope they’ll visit the Philippines)
CNBLUE’s musicality aroused me. Step by step, I become madly in love with their music. I always have this thing for musicians. 🙂 In admiring a band, I always go for their lyrics, vocals and sense of music style. The member looks are bonus! (hahaha!) Technically, Their arrangement is upbeat and hip for its rap version with a sudden ballad and the amazing combinations of instruments. as in.. wow! you’re too cool. 😀 They also have a powerful vocals. Yong hwa is a really good vocals and rapper with the support of jong hyun. Jung shin the bassist can do rap too. My Minhyuk can sing well too. ♥ (star) Their music lift my spirit high. Whew! What else I can say…I’m so in LOVE ! LOVE! LOVE! everybody CLAP! CLAP! CLAP! They deserve the spotlight. Oppa’s KEEP IT UP .. Saranghae!

My CNBLUE Boyfriend :

Also, I like his affection with the fans which I discovered on the teasing videos. He has this irresistible charm 🙂 He’s good in singing and acting too. whoa! I love his drumming style with the twist of his drumsticks :p I love you! nomu nomu nomu joh-a KANG MIN HYUK ♥
