CNBLUE's Yonghwa and singer-songwriter Sunwoo Jungah guested on the January 15 airing of 'Sketchbook' and talked about how they came to collaborate on "Fireworks" and "Hello."
Yonghwa recalled, "I randomly heard Sunwoo Jungah's song "Baepsae" on the radio one day and was pleasantly shocked. [Her music] gave off an Amy Winehouse vibe. When I saw her singing with that flyaway hairstyle and wrapped in a cast, I thought, 'I have to work with her.'"
Turns out Sunwoo Jungah was also a fan of Yonghwa! She said, "I really liked Yonghwa's solo album and he reached out to me asking to collaborate. It was right around the time I had written a duet song and I believed his voice would go really well with it, so I told him about it and he wholeheartedly agreed." Then they both declared at the same time, "It was fate," bringing laughter.
Fate or not, we for one, are certainly happy that you guys collaborated because "Fireworks" and "Hello" are kick-ass songs!
