CNBlue fans are angry with the media for creating controversy
Remember the couple mistakes of SNSD’s Seohyun and CNBLUE’s Jung Yong Hwa? Well, it seems like Jung Yong Hwa did not make a mistake on Music Bank!
No wonder! I watched the performance multiple times looking for the slip-up, and eventually left it to CNBLUE hardcore fans to find it for me! But nothing of that sort really happened.
On the 19th, CNBLUE successfully finished performing their debut song, I’m a Loner, without any problems. However, after the performance, many articles saying that ‘Jung Yong Hwa mixed up the lyrics’ or ‘He fumbled the lyrics’ popped up all over the media. Now, after careful review of the performance, it seems like he did not mess up at all!
What actually happened on Music Bank was that the other members confused the lyrics, “Sad because of love (사랑에 슬퍼하고)” and “Hurt because of love (사랑에 아파하고)”. The small mistake was not even a big problem and Jung Yong Hwa, the main subject of the controversy, is innocent!
A representative of CNBLUE said,
“We were shocked by articles saying ‘Jung Yong Hwa’s slip-up’, so we looked into it. He never made a mistake. We believe it was just a happening.”
Fans of CNBLUE are furious because the media mistakenly called Jung Yong Hwa out by saying that he mixed up or fumbled the lyrics during the performance on KBS2’s Music Bank. The fans are calling it a conspiracy against CNBLUE!
So what happened? Did a reporter get paid by We Got Married to stir up the media before the actual airing of the first episode? Was the reporter too eager to find something Seohyun and Jung Yong Hwa had in common? Was the reporter simply experimenting with the rising popularity of the two idols?
I think Jung Yong Hwa should be proud of this incident. It is a sign that even the smallest talk about him will stir up the media. He is now the new ‘issue maker’!
