During CNBLUE’s comeback show “Can’t Stop” that aired on March 2, IU mentioned that she wanted Jung Yong Hwa’s “Like A Child.”
With a smile, she remarked, “After listening to just the guide version, I asked for the song. But he wouldn’t give it to me and put it in his own album instead. It’s sad. I wanted to sing that song.”
Jung Yong Hwa responded to IU’s comment and said, “IU and I listen to each others’ music a lot so I let her listen to that song.” He said that he decided to put “Like A Child” into the album after seeing IU react positively to it.
Jung Yong Hwa also shared the special story behind how he came to write that song. “CNBLUE built a school in Burkina Faso and we saw pictures of the children there, smiling. I thought, if people go back to being like a child, they will be happy like they’re in heaven.”
Meanwhile, CNBLUE has been seeing immense success with their newly released “Can’t Stop” mini-album all around the world.
