10 reasons fans have to celebrate Yong Hwa's birthday!
June 22 is a magical day for K-drama fans. Not only was Lee Min Ho born, but Jung Yong Hwa, star of fan favorites like Heartstrings and You Are Beautiful, also shares that birthday! On June 22, he turns 25 (26 in Korean age). Here are ten times we realized his birthday was a celebration for fans, too:
1. When he melted us with his voice
There's a reason Yong Hwa stars in so many musical dramas, and this is that reason. Will we see some more singing in his upcoming drama The Three Musketeers?
2. When he was invisible to the girl, but he wasn't invisible to us
TURN AROUND! Between You're Beautiful and Marry Him If You Dare, Yong Hwa knows how to break your heart as a second lead.
3. When he finally got the girl
Let's be honest. We all know that Heartstrings was payback for all of the Shin Woo fans from You're Beautiful.
4. When he was an aegyo champion
All of the CNBLUE members are pretty good, but Yong Hwa's "I love you!" at 1:43 just kills me.
5. When he took over Running Man
As of February, Yong Hwa has appeared as a guest on Running Man ten times, making him the show's most common guest of all time!
6. When we were insanely jealous of Seohyun
The guy can sing, act, and do variety shows. Is there anything he can't do? In the second season of We Got Married, fans loved his relationship with his "wife," Seohyun of Girls' Generation.
7. When he supported his band members
8. When he sounded like the ideal boyfriend
In an interview with The Star, Yong Hwa was asked what kind of boyfriend he is, and this was his response: "I used to be funny with my girlfriend. I tried to make her laugh. I like a relationship to be like a friendship." That sounds perfect for all of those ladies who rank a sense of humor high on their priorities!
9. When he had magical stage presence
Those fans lucky enough to see CNBLUE live, like at their concert in NYC, say that he's fantastic on the stage.
10. When we found out we could see him in person at KCON!
Yes, that's right. If you missed the NYC concert, don't fret because. CNBLUE will be performing at KCON this year! Since Girls' Generation is also confirmed, could we hope for a Yong Hwa-Seohyun reunion? Or because IU will be there, can we please see this adorable duet in real life?
Happy birthday, Yong Hwa! Good luck with The Three Musketeers! What's your favorite Yong Hwa moment? Comment below!
