Full Profile of CNBLUE Members (Name, Birthday, Ages, Religion, and Facebook)


About K-Pop CNBLUE

CN BLUE which stands for Code Name Blue (Korean: 씨엔블루), is a 4 member boy band under FNC Entertainment that was formed in 2009. CN is the initialism for Code Name, while BLUE is a backronym for burning, lovely, untouchable, and emotional; it is meant to portray the images of Jonghyun, Minhyuk, Jungshin, and Yonghwa, respectively.

CN Blue has been a bastion of rock in a music scene dominated by danceable electro-pop and got started in Japan before becoming popular in South Korea. Much like their K-pop colleagues, CN Blue has gone from a group of nobodies to superstars almost overnight after successfully debuting with their catchy lead single “I’m a Loner“. They debuted on January 14, 2010 and their fan club is named Boice.

CNBLUE Members Popularity Ranking


CNBLUE has a larger fan-base/popularity outside Korea, and all of the members also pursue solo activities to gain much more fame and popularity. Before CNBLUE made their official major debut, they already had an excellent reputation in Japan through Yonghwa who was casted in “You’re Beautiful”.

Minhyun once said that Yonghwa is the group’s leader who produces the vast majority of the band’s music and he’s really proud of him. Yonghwa’s acting career and his solo debut were in fact pretty successful, that’s why he was voted as the most popular member in the band.

Eventhough CNBlue picked Lee Jonghyun as the most good-looking member, he was ranked the last in a popularity poll with Yonghwa on top. Then Yonghwa responded, “This is because Jonghyun’s charms couldn’t be seen yet”.

Besides Yonghwa, the other members too are skillful. The members have already been living together for 3 years. They revealed that the respective first impressions of each other were, ‘Jung Yonghwa the young noble’, ‘Kang Minhyuk the good student’, ‘Lee Jonghyun the young Busan man who often got lost’ and ‘really tall Lee Jungshin’. You can see their individual charms on the music video below!
