In a recent interview, CNBLUE's Jung Yong Hwa has revealed that he had received requests from TVXQ's U-Know Yunho and ZE:A's Kwanghee to write songs for their respective groups.
Jung Yong Hwa is an extremely talented musician who can sing, play the guitar, and also write and produce songs as well. CNBLUE recently made their comeback and their title song 'I'm Sorry' was a composition that came from the hands of Jung Yong Hwa. The song immediately swept all major music charts in South Korea after it was released.
In an interview conducted within their company, Jung Yong Hwa expressed, "While the other members were busy with filming, I kept myself occupied by writing songs. It was a time that I have dreamt of having since I debuted as part of CNBLUE. And I also said to myself that this was the time to show everyone my ambition and talent," revealing his present situation. He continued, "After I devoted all my energies and attention to something that I had interest in which was composing songs, it dawned on me for the first time last year that trying to compose something is so torturous."
Besides being active in producing songs for CNBLUE, Jung Yong Hwa also wrote songs for his label mates, Juniel and AOA, and became recognized among his peers in the music industry as a talented musician who can sing and compose songs. Jung Yong Hwa revealed, "I was really elated that my songs can be given to others to sing. Not long ago, I met Kwanghee and he asked me for a song. U-Know Yunho has also said to me that if there is a opportunity, he hopes that I can write a song for them too."
When asked if he had any thoughts of giving his songs to other singers, Jung Yong Hwa said, "I am of course happy whenever someone ask me to write a song for them. But to write a song for someone that's not from my company, I would feel some pressure as I would have to write according to their music style. I will have to continue writing songs, until I possess that experience to give songs to people, without affecting their style in any way."
Meanwhile, CNBLUE recently made their comeback in South Korea after a 10 month hiatus, with their 4th mini album 'Re:BLUE', and is now in the midst of promoting their title song 'I'm Sorry'.
