CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa Shares Letter Thanking Fans After Contract Renewal News
On October 24, CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa took to Twitter to share his thoughts about the band’s contract renewal news.
Earlier in the week, FNC Entertainment confirmed that CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa, Kang Min Hyuk, and Lee Jung Shin had renewed their contracts with the agency and that the band was planning for a comeback before the end of the year.
In his letter, Jung Yong Hwa wrote:
Hello everyone, this is Jung Yong Hwa. To BOICE [CNBLUE’s official fanclub], it’s been a long time since I’ve greeted you.
I am writing because I wanted to speak honestly to you about our contract renewal and our new promotions as we approach our first comeback in three years and eight months.
There were various incidents that occurred, but I was not able to speak or act easily as the leader, so I was sad and disappointed at those times. The responsibility of expressing these worries in my head through words weighed heavily on me.
After serious thought and discussions with the members, our families, and FNC’s staff for a year, we decided that this was the best choice for us to protect the name of CNBLUE, make good music in that name, and be together with BOICE again. Although we may seem a little lacking, we decided to head toward contract renewal with a new mindset.
Apart from us, the fans must have also been worried, concerned, and in pain. When I think about that, I can only be grateful and sorry. I believe that there will come a time when we can freely exchange our thoughts, even those concerns that are difficult to speak about.
However, CNBLUE always has a sincere gratitude toward BOICE, who have warmly waited for us despite the difficult times that they must have faced. We will not forget this gratitude and we look forward to spending happier times with you through various promotions.
The only way we can repay fans who have waited for us for so long is by continuing to make music despite whatever situation might occur and show that we have not changed in our attitude toward our fans and music.
It is a source of great strength to us that BOICE is always watching over us, beside us. That’s absolutely true. I will keep this promise to be together with you.
