I still find Yonghwa very cute. This is the gif that I made today, from NAN aired last night.
It’s been 601 days from the premiere of You’re Beautiful. I think I liked him watching Episode 1 already. 600 days is a long time, don’t you think? I rarely say I love Yonghwa. Love is a heavy word. And I don’t want to be misunderstood that I have all sorts of romantic fantasies over him. Just like some radio show host said earlier, CNBLUE brings out the maternal instinct of the fans. It’s really something like that. I like him that I almost want to protect him, say like a guardian angel (or fairy godmother). Of course I haven’t done anything and can’t do anything. I don’t even read Korean and has to rely on the ardent fans around who tell me everything. But let me use ‘love’ interchangeably with ‘like’ in the following.
As a fan of Yonghwa’s, I want him to be loved by a lot of people. I feel bad when I read negative comments on him. That’s natural, I guess. But then I thought I shouldn’t be too bothered. The internet is a funny thing. One tends to think he/she knows a lot but actually it’s the wrong picture out there.
If enough people love you, the ones who don’t, don’t matter.
I can’t remember where and when I read the above. But how many is enough? Maybe he doesn’t care himself? I don’t want him to care about this matter anyway.
And yesterday is 501 days since CNBLUE’s Korean debut showcase. I couldn’t believe I actually found pics of the showcase that I didn’t see before! And they’re nice and huge pics. (To be exact, I think I have small versions of them with logos.)
I’ve said many times, he’s most charming to me when he’s leader of CNBLUE. And that day, he told the world that he’s the leader. I was so shocked. I didn’t expect that at all as Jonghyun was supposedly the leader. And he talked and talked so much in the press conference. He shone. I just couldn’t match him with the quiet and low profile Shinwoo hyung I knew.
But you know how much he sweated in the showcase? So much that his make-up got all messed up. The eyeliner melting and streaking on his face!
He still sweated a lot during the the live performances around that time, say KJE Chocolate. He explained that he sweated like that when he’s nervous. Do you notice that he’s not sweating in recent performances? Meaning: he’s very confident now. I really enjoy watching his growth all this time.
The rest of the batch of nice pics I found yesterday.

PS I wish I could do magic for Yonghwa and CNBLUE, but I don’t think they need me. They can just be themselves.
