CNBLUE‘s lead vocal Jung Yonghwa showed his support for a junior artist.
On a recent episode of MBC‘s ‘K-Pop Stars Captivating the World‘, Yonghwa was featured producing a new song for junior artist, Juniel.
After viewers saw how warmly he offered his advice and counsel to Juniel as her senior artist and producer, the two immediately became one of the most-searched personalities on Korean portal sites.
“Who is Juniel?”, netizens asked as they searched for more information, while also saying, “So jealous that she is close with Yonghwa.”
Juniel was previously crowned the winner on Niji Iro Supernova, the Japanese version of Korean audition program ‘Super Star K‘. Thanks to her musical talents and song-writing abilities, she has even promoted for some time in Japan.
With the help of Yonghwa, Juniel will be making her official debut in Korea towards the end of May.
***************Jung Yong Hwa Tries His Hand at Producing
CN Blue’s Jung Yong Hwa continues to further himself in the entertainment industry. In the “K-Pop Star World – Just CN Blue” special aired on MBC on April 21, the band’s frontman revealed a glimpse of himself in his next project as a producer.
Jung Yong Hwa is producing a track, which he also composed for his junior at FNC Entertainment, Juniel. “K-Pop Star World” followed him into the recording session and captured him giving kind guidance, direction and counsel to the younger singer.
The CN Blue vocalist and guitarist is not a stranger to composing. “When I make a song really fast, it comes out in 10 minutes,” he said on the broadcast. Jung Yong Hwa also wrote “Where You Are,” the four-man band’s second major label single in Japan. “Where You Are” is noteworthy for having reached the top spot of the Oricon Singles Chart, the first time a foreign band reached No. 1 in 41 years.
Jung Yong Hwa, however, is a rookie at taking on a producer role for Juniel’s Korean debut. Juniel, a product of a talent show, has been active in Japan but will be launching her career in Korea soon. “K-Pop Star World” also revealed that the track Jung Yong Hwa wrote and produced for Juniel is a duet and will feature the CN Blue leader’s vocals.
