Guys, I have a confession to make. It took me a while to discover Lee Jonghyun, lead guitarist and vocalist of CNBlue. I got into Kpop through Kdramas, and because I saw and loved You’re Beautiful and Heartstrings, I was imprinted like a duckling on Yonghwa. Bias picked, I looked no further. Then, I watched Orange Marmalade and… Holy Toledo, who is THAT?
Jonghyun was easily the best part of that drama, in my opinion. Now, I wonder how I could possibly have missed him. Was I blind?
Well, obviously, I hadn’t seen A Gentleman’s Dignity yet, ’cause look at how cute!
Now that my eyes had been opened, I had to start digging around to learn more about him.
There is almost nothing sexier than a guy with a guitar, and Jonghyun is the real deal. He was inspired to learn the guitar after watching legendary singer-songwriter and guitarist, Eric Clapton, perform. I can see some some of Clapton’s influence here.
When it comes down to it, Jonghyun checks ALL my boxes. Rockstar?
Nice arms? I read he was a judo athlete in High School. Looks like he’s stayed in shape.
Looks good wet?
Makes me want to snuggle at a ski lodge in Aspen?
What really made him steal my heart though was when I learned he wrote Blind Love, my all time favorite CNBLUE song. So romantic… /sigh.
I’m really envious of all of you who have had a chance to see him perform live! And many of you will get a chance at KCon LA this year. If you’re there, make sure to tell him I love him, ok? Till next time!
