Jung Joon Young

Ben told me he couldn’t understand why I am so into Jung Joon Young. It’s okay Ben, you’re not the only one.

tumblr_nc63ihQ4yA1seo0pbo1_500Some fans know him through Superstar K4 ( a korean singing competition) or We Got Married. Others recognised him as a rising star in variety shows. I mean just look at him.

And whoever knows me knew that I have a soft spot for kids. When babysitting these 3 kids, JJY wanted to be their friend instead of a 1 Day daddy. My heart just melted when I saw these pictures.

Having stood by his original music colour of alternative rock, this album appealed so much to me I downloaded all the songs ( yeah I usually nit-pick the songs).

tumblr_nchnzsasBV1rd5qnko2_400I used to hate all the screaming in rock music but it is funny how heartfelt JJY’s 2nd mini album can be. In fact, I found myself seeking comfort from exhaustion in his songs everyday after work.

With the company’s wish of him pursuing pop rock instead of hard rock in JJY’s first album, I witnessed the struggles of a true musician who was split between public’s favour of mainstream music versus his passion.

tumblr_nbyvlwouGo1r0u46to2_500Rock may not be the most popular genre amongst the public but I was thankful that there remains someone in the industry who pursues it anyhow. Yesterday may be JJY’s 1st anniversary since debut but this is certainly not the last.

Whether you’re silly like this
