THE CHARMS OF JUNG YONGHWA
A list by Agent K (cover: just a fan)
His eyes. Not too big and not too small. Even his parents said his eyes were the main attraction the day he was born. His ‘bling bling’ (a synonym for ‘sparkling’, often used by him and his fans) eyes still stand out in the almost-faded childhood pictures. There are stars shining in his eyes (figurative description) when he’s on stage, as seen in concert DVDs and fancams. And he has learned to ‘talk with his eyes’ (discovered fact from the few seconds of Heartstrings teasers).
His smiles. There are a million variations (not to be taken literally). Very contagious.
He composes music. His fans just wow every time when he releases a new composition. It seems nothing can stop that ‘flow’ in his mind; he has made tunes and sounds of very variable styles when he was so busy with all sorts of performances and shows in his schedule.
He writes lyrics. His English lyrics are simple but powerful. International fans really appreciate his effort to relate to them. The Korean lyrics are beautiful and have depth (K’s impression reading the translated version).
He sings. His voice is a bit raw but versatile. A very emotional singer.
He plays the guitar. Playing the guitar isn’t his best skill but he has been improving all the way. He is a cool guitarist of this band too.
He is ambitious. His goal is to have CNBLUE’s music on the American Billboard Chart. He’s determined to be a better actor even though he hasn’t dreamed of being an actor. He never allows failure to beat him, exemplified by how he erased the bad name of ‘nuisance MC’.
His sense of humor. This is not so obvious in variety shows but in fan meetings and interviews. K had first-hand experience at a fan meeting.
He loves his bandmates. Even K was touched reading his explaining why he doesn’t want to become too-close friends with other artists (NAN recording dated 2011.05.20).
N.B. The list is subjected to revision as undercover operations continue.
I want to say this to Yonghwa’s parents: You have raised a wonderful kind. Thank you. I’m imagining their joy looking at the just-born Yonghwa. (I just can’t help thinking Yonghwa said his mom was shocked seeing his big eyes.) From what I read all over the Net and from the various TV shows and interviews, Yonghwa was liked by relatives and friends. And his bandmates and other artists he works with in all sorts of occasions seem to be charmed by him. Of course we fans think he lives to his name: Bolmae Jung.

Your best years are still ahead of you.
PS My world has been a better place since I knew you.
(The last line sounds so cheesy. There’s a slim chance that he’ll read this but I think he’ll like it.)
