Today, CNBLUE’s Yonghwa said goodbye to friends and family as he enlisted in the military.
Looking at all the pictures absolutely broke my heart! I first saw Yonghwa as the squishy and adorable Shinwoo in You’re Beautiful. My second male lead syndrome hit hard and I immediately fell in love with the character, as well as the man behind him. I was really surprised to learn he’s in a pop rock band so I had to go listen to their music as soon as I found out.
I’ve had some relatively bad experiences with English pop rock bands so I wasn’t sure what was gonna happen going into it. However, CNBLUE quickly became one of my favorite groups. They’ve always helped me relax and smile and I’ll always be grateful to them for that. I found myself searching their Japanese music and then Yonghwa’s solo albums, falling even more in love as time passed.
It’s really hard for me to say goodbye to Yonghwa for the next almost two years. I don’t like goodbyes…..but unfortunately it’s necessary. As much as I don’t want to, I have to let him go and hold him closer to my heart while he’s gone. I hope these next couple months go by quickly and that he has a safe enlistment! Instead of goodbye, I’ll say see you soon. I’ll wait for you to come back ❤
