Stage Name: Yonghwa
Birth Name: Jung Yong Hwa
Date of Birth: June 22, 1989
Height: 180 cm (5’11”)
Weight: 63 kg (139 lbs)
Yonghwa is a Korean singer, song writer and actor who has been active in the K-pop industry since 2006. He thinks that positivity is what it takes to get ahead in this competitive world of ours so he makes an effort to smile every day as if it were his first day on earth!
Yonghwa’s motto rests at “power of positiveness.” Yonghwa hates goldfish, bees and cockroaches for some reason but not much will be said about those creatures here. What many don’t know however is that because he doesn’t express feelings very well verbally, when writing lyrics or poetry it allows him more freedom with his emotions which explains why they are always expressed better than how they would have come out otherwise.
Yonghwa is one of the most recognizable figures in Korean pop culture not only for his talent and how he uses it to give back, but also because of who he is. His tweets are always positive and cheerful, even though sometimes they may be about a broken heart or an argument with someone close by. He has said that as long as the person he cares about knows how he feels, it’s all that matters.
Yonghwa is also noted for being extremely caring and compassionate to other people’s feelings as well as his own which sometimes can be seen by the way he treats them in public or through social media. He has a good relationship with most of CNBLUEs other members and has said that they all get along well, even though sometimes there are some minor conflicts.
He is a great friend to his bandmates as he’s always on support for them when the road gets tough. He also tries to encourage others by showing them what life can be like in their shoes with words of wisdom or advice.
Yonghwa has been in many dramas, such as You’re Beautiful (2009), Heartstrings/You‘ve Fallen for Me (2011) and Gentleman’s Dignity.
Stage Name: Minhyuk
Birth Name: Kang Min Hyuk
Date of Birth: June 28, 1991
Height: 184 cm (6’0″)
Weight: 60 kg (132 lbs)
Minhyuk is a very good singer and has been in many performances, such as Sketchbook (2011), Law of the Jungle (2013) and Immortal Song: Singing the Legend.
Minhyuk is a romantic person. He knows a lot about dating, like where to go and what kind of food you can eat while on date night. Minhyuk’s dad was his first drum teacher; he learned how to play drums from watching him teach class at Music School when they were in Japan together for concerts or showcases.
Minhyk likes band music after listening to Maroon5 because it sounds like rock-pop songs that are entertaining with its upbeat tempo and the lyrics being easy enough for people around my age group (15)to relate too even if we don’t know all the words by heart yet!
He is one who cleans most often out of CNBLUE members since he feels responsible but also enjoys cleaning.
Minhyuk’s hobbies are, drumming of course and also bowling. He is quite good at the sport as he was on a high school league team for years- or so I’ve heard from Yonghwa!
He loves to travel because it means new experiences will be had and memories made. His favorite place so far? The Maldives.
He is a member of the band ‘CNBLUE’ and he was born on March 25th, 1991 in Seoul South Korea.
His talent? Being able to play drums and being an amazing singer with great pronunciation! He’s also known for his funny personality which I’ve seen time after time where he does imitations and demonstrations on stage.
He is a talented actor as well, though he has not taken up many jobs in that realm to date.
Minhyuk’s favorite food? Noodles! He loves noodles so much that he gets excited when it comes time for him to eat them- which happens quite often since we share the love of noodles!
He has a very strong sense of responsibility and always takes care to check-in with us before he does anything. He also makes sure that we have enough time for rehearsal so as not to disrupt the flow of our work.
His favorite number? The number seven because it’s lucky in both Western and Eastern cultures. His favorite color? Black because it’s sexy.
He also loves to read and he reads every day, even when he has a lot of work that needs doing at his own company. The thing Minhyuk likes most about reading is the sound of flipping pages- I can’t help but smile!
Stage Name: Jungshin
Birth Name: Lee Jung Shin
Date of Birth: September 15, 1991
Height: 188 cm (6’2″)
Weight: 66 kg (145 lbs)
Jungshin has a very close relationship with his members since they are the same age. Despite being the youngest, he is also CN Blue’s tallest member and grew 10 cm each year in high school! After appearing on “We Got Married” as part of an ‘brother-in-law,’ JungShin was named #1 most searched Korean search site nicknaming him Goddess.
When fighting among themselves happens its usually when JungShin becomes charming to erase all conflict at once; which proves that even though he may be young, never underestimate this man! He stays connected by sending messages every day to his parents too who love hearing from their son so much.
– Jungshin may be the youngest member with a very close relationship to his older members.

Stage Name: Jonghyun
Birth Name: Lee Jong Hyun
Date of Birth: May 15, 1990
Height: 182 cm (6’0″)
Weight: 64 kg (141 lbs)
Jonghyun is the 2nd leader of CN Blue, and his idol is Kim Bum Soo. He had the chance to meet him after debuting in Korea but ironically he’s good friends with SHINee’s Jonghyun. As a rapper/sing-jay, you can find some songs of CN Blue that are composed by himself like “Love You,” “I’m Sorry” or even “Blue Night.”
Jonghyun’s deep voice emanates a sense of confidence and assurance that commands attention. His personality is cheerful, playful, expressive and confident; he never seems to let anything bother him! Jonghyun has been an athlete since middle school while also practicing martial arts in his spare time. He says “If I wasn’t singing or being on stage with CN Blue these days…I would have just tried to be the best at sports”.
Stage Name: Kwangjin (광진)
Birth Name: Kwon Kwang Jin (권광진)
Date of Birth: August 12, 1992
He is more of a quiet type. He is the one in the group that has always been most interested in academics and studying, so he’s taking courses online while still playing with CN Blue as well!
He was born in Seoul, South Korea and left CN Blue back in 2009. He then went on to sign with FNC for 10 years before debuting as a member of N.Flying this year (2018). But alas, he’s already gone; it seems that the scandals have caught up with him when you consider his recent departure from the group due to sexual harassment allegations against him!
