CNBlue have very different tastes in women

They might be bandmates, but when it comes to women, the suave lads of South Korean pop rockers CNBlue admit they have very different tastes.

In an e-mail interview with M to promote their upcoming concert in Singapore, each member of the quartet gave their take on who would make their ideal girlfriend and what qualities they should have.

As it turns out, leader and frontman Jung Yong Hwa prefers a sporty significant other.

"My ideal girlfriend would be former world figure skater Kim Yuna," said the 24-year-old.

Kim, 23, dubbed Korea's skating queen and a 2010 Olympic champion, announced her retirement recently, shortly after she bagged a silver medal at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.

Guitarist Lee Jong Hyun, 23, on the other hand, unabashedly revealed he is an ardent fan of Korean blockbuster drama series My Love From The Star.

"Jeon Ji Hyun is for me," he said. "Her character Chun Song Yi in My Love From The Star is extremely attractive."

Bassist Lee Jung Shin and drummer Kang Min Hyuk, both 22, were less effusive when describing the woman of their dreams.

"I like girls with beautiful eyes," said Kang, while Lee simply replied that he had "no fixed type".


Although it's been only a year since CNBlue's last gig here - they last played in Singapore last April 2013 as part of their Blue Moon World Tour - the musicians promise "refreshing" elements for local fans.

"The upcoming concert will be a good opportunity for audiences to enjoy all the tracks from our new mini album Can't Stop live," said Jung.

Can't Stop, consisting of five brand new numbers, was released in February.

The band is also feeling upbeat after their successful debut tour in the US, Mexico and Peru.

"It is so amazing that there are lots of people who love our music living on the opposite side of the world," said guitarist Lee.

"Everywhere we went, our fans showed so much passion and energy. They kept shouting, 'CNBlue, CNBlue!'"
