At the press conference held on May 9 before the “Blue Moon” concert in Hong Kong, CNBlue‘s Jung Yong Hwa discussed balancing music and acting.
There may be fans who knew Jung Yong Hwa through his acting projects -“You’re Beautiful” and “Heartstrings“- before they knew him through his music. Jung Yong Hwa stated, “There are people who like CNBlue because of our music and there are others who came to pay attention to us after becoming our fans through watching dramas.” He added, “There are people who saw us in dramas and came to listen to band music and see us play. There are people who say, ‘I have come to a concert for the first time in my life.'”
Jung Yong Hwa continued, “Although it is right that I focus on music when we gather as CNBlue, I am thankful that people become fans through the dramas and I try to work hard in that field.” He clarified that he still places music first before acting, saying, “I still place music in the center and believe that people will love us if we work hard.”
CNBlue also announced at the press conference that they will be donating the proceeds of their concert T-shirt auction to the Hong Kong Red Cross. CNBlue holds the Hong Kong leg of their “2013 World Tour- Blue Moon” concert series May 10 and 11 at the Asia World Expo Arena.
