CNBLUE front-man Jung Yonghwa has many talents, most of which are musical related as the musician has been noted for writing and composing a number of CNBLUE songs and has even composed for fellow FNC Entertainment label artists such as AOA and Juniel. The young star was professionally trained to play several instruments including piano, clarinet and of course the guitar but it is little known that Yonghwa is also a talented sportsman. Recently, Yonghwa has mentioned he has taken up golf as a new hobby and it is very known that he loves to play basketball during his downtime. Yet, some of his extra-musical talents have been hidden until recently. In 2010, Yonghwa starred on season two of the very popular KBS show ‘We Got Married’, a reality show that pairs up Korean celebrities to show what life would be like if they were married.Each week, couples are assigned missions to complete. For his season of the show, Yonghwa was paired with Girls’ Generation member, Seohyun. One of their challenges was to go on a weekend holiday together at a ski resort and he was to teach her how to ski. During this episode, the CNBLUE vocalist showed off his expert snowboarding skills giving the world a small glimpse of his cheeky personality and snowboarding prowess.
In late January 2013, Yonghwa went on holiday to the Hongcheon Ski Resort and later shared a few images of his trip on Twitter. Yesterday, he decided to share a video clip that was filmed during this ski vacation taken by his manager who accompanied him on the trip. The video shows Yonghwa demonstrating his comfort level and ease of moment on the single board as his manager follows closely behind him capturing the star’s savvy moves down the slope.
Yonghwa posted a short message and the video with the hopes of “cooling off” fans during the current summer heatwave Japan and Korea are suffering.
“Guys!!! I’ve safely arrived in Japan ㅋ The weather is so hot right? This video was taken during our trip to Hongcheon’s ski resort back in January, with our Japanese manager hyung, a former snowboarding athlete. ㅋ even the slopes are named “rock”. This ski resorts is seriously the best ㅋ ㅋ The other members were with the other manager hyung playing elsewhere ~ ~ To film this while going down is the amazing thing from manager hyung ㅋㅋ !!! Hopefully looking at this video can cool you down even though it’s hot outside!!!! So, let’s get to a great show!!!
Top of the world!”
