CNBlue's ELLE Girl Interview



We will say the truth. The interest of on C.N Blue started from Jung YongHwa. The fantasy drama created by the Hong Sisters, ‘You’re Beautiful’ didn’t get nearly close to the view ratings for IRIS, but still, in many ways; this drama had its own specialties. One of it being that the drama carried the face of the new star, Jung YongHwa.

Jung YongHwa starred as the guitarist in the popular band A.N.JELL. Whenever the female lead, MiNyu, was stuck in a situation, he played the role of the fantasy character that would come and save her without any words, gaining the interest of many. But later you could find out that he was the leader for the soon to debut band, C.N Blue. The rumors that they were a band that already had 2 albums out and also those they were highly skilled had interested many. What? They were going to stand as the band group in a place dominated by ‘entertaining’ idol groups? This was the reason that we invited these 4 guys despite of their practice for their upcoming showcase.

T-ara’s first break in six months

Girl group T-ara just earned themselves a little break.



For six months straight, these girls worked hard with their newest songs like Bo Peep Bo Peep and Like the First Time but now they got themselves a very short break.

How short? Just three hours. The girls are all getting three hours of free shopping for their upcoming online shopping mall T-ara dot com.

The online shopping mall is part of their newest reality show.

To T-ara, three hours mean two hours of sleeping and one hour of shopping. The girls came back from their busy schedules and shopped till they dropped.

The program, T-ara World, is trying to see T-ara’s individual sense of styles before launching the actual website. The staff of the new show said, “You will get to see personalities of the members that are funnier than sitcom characters.”

T-ara World will air on the February 3rd and the 10th.

I hope they enjoyed their 2 hours of sleep!
