Cheondoong Thunder MBLAQ Rapper Profile

Park Sanghyun or Cheondoong is the rapper of Korean Boyband MBLAQ. Cheondoong which means Thunder is the younger brother of 2NE1 vocalist Sandara Park. 

Like his sister, he lived in the Philippines and is fluent in Tagalog and is also conversational in English.

Cheondoong wants to work with 2NE1′s

The figure that MBLAQ’s Cheondoong wants to work with is 2NE1′s CL.

Even as 2NE1′s Sandara Park’s younger brother, in their recent interview Hello TV, he selected world star Rain (Jung Jihoon) and 2NE1′s CL as the people whom he wanted to work with.

Cheondoong said “It was after seeing Rain’s performance that made me decide to become a singer”, pointing out Rain as his role model. In addition, he revealed his strong ambitions, “I often hear that I’m nice because I appear to be gentle, but just because people say that I’m nice, there’s no reason that I can’t be strong”, “Rather than giving up on everything like Rain, I’m going to work hard in order to become the best singer, and in order to achieve my dream, strongly”.

Cheondoong also pointed out one of his strengths as being able to learn choreography faster than the other members, in addition, he talks about the controversy of him on TV when he was unable to do his multiplication tables, “It’s just that I’ve never learned my multiplication tables, it really wasn’t because I’m stupid”, he argued while causing laughter.

Chic-dol MBLAQ’s special interview and photoshoot can all be seen in the June issue of CJ Premium TV Magazine Hello.

Cheon Doong for Odina Magazine

Cheondoong, also known as Thunder from MBLAQ recently did a photoshoot for Odina Magazine. In this photoshoot he showed a manly and charismatic side of himself. Do you like the concept?

Sandara Park is a fangirl of younger brother Thunder?

2NE1’s Sandara Park is currently conducting a 12 part interview dubbed Star Diary with Asia E. In Part 10 of the Star Diary, she talks about her relationship with younger brother and MBLAQ Member Thunder (Cheondoong).

With a dongsaeng who is walking down the same path as her, and dreaming the same dream as her, she is not alone in her celebrity life.

Sandara Park’s youngest brother is Cheondoong of MBLAQ. Although he overflows with charisma on stage, to Sandara Park, he’ll always be like a little kid.


“Cheondoong and I are six years a part. Starting from when he was young I’d carry him on my back and stuff and I always worried about him. Even still, when I see him perform on stage, it’s admirable. Isn’t he cute when he shows off his personal talents on variety shows?”

Cheondoong was added late into the group that Bi produced, MBLAQ. Because of this, he had to work twice as hard.

“Starting from when Cheondoong was young, he wanted to become a singer. He worked even harder than me at learning dance. I think he’s much better than me in terms of musical talent. (Laughs)”

While talking about Cheondoong, Sandara Park’s eyes were filled with love. 2NE1 members even said “Sandara Park is like Cheondoong’s stalker.”

“Cheondoong’s apartment is pretty far from ours so I can’t see him often. It seems like my brother’s busier than me. So we chat online and cam together online everyday. If I look at what Cheondoong is doing through webcam, the other members keep saying ‘She’s like one of his crazy fangirls.’”

Sandara Park’s Description – In 1993 when I was in Grade 3, piggybacking my baby brother Cheondoong behind the Daegoo zoo.

Sandara Park is sad that she can’t see Cheondoong often. Their activities are at different times so they can’t even meet at broadcasting stations.

“In television shows, Cheondoong says “Noona, buy me food”. After I see the show and tell him I’ll buy him food, he tells me ‘We’re working on a new album so I don’t have time’. I finally saw him during last year’s ending award shows. I took the snacks from our waiting room and brought them to MBLAQ. Cheondoong needs to eat a lot. (Haha)”

Rather than opposing how out of their three children, the oldest daughter and the magnae are doing celebrity activities, their parents support them. Because of their parents’ support, they were able to be acknowledged as celebrities and receive love from the public.

“While I lived in the Philippines, my mother was my manager. So she was always by my side. These days, she monitors me from home. I’m most scared for when my mom ‘points out things’”.

Sandara Park and Cheondoong are dreaming the same dream. Both want to make ‘Our Studio’.

“I always talk with my brother. How in the future, we’re going to build our own house. The first floor will be where we live with our parents, the second floor will be our studio. Truthfully, even though sometimes I want to stand on stage with my brother, we each have our own places to be.”

MBLAQ’s Thunder to be featured on G.NA’s Music Bank performance later

For the third week of G.NA’s mini-album promotion for “I’ll Back Off So You Can Live”, MBLAQ’s Thunder is going to be featured as the rapper for her performance on Music Bank later. Previously, we have seen rapper Mario, BEAST’s Junhyung & Doojoon and 4Minute’s Hyuna featured as the rapper for her performances in the past weeks. Meanwhile, BEAST’s Doojoon will be featured again for her Music Core performance tomorrow.

I'm not really sure when was this taken but it was taken from KBS Music Bank. Another Park Siblings treat for us! Thunder looks so cute with that giraffe costume.

Lee Joon MBLAQ Vocalist Profile

Lee Changsun (이창선) or Lee Joon (이준) is the vocallist of Korean Boy Band MBLAQ. Lee Jon once also acted in Rain Bi movie "Ninja Assassin". He played a younger version of Rain's character in the film.

Lee Joon ideal girl

On the May 1st episode of Star Golden Bell – he is a perma member of Bell line now.. -, when exhibitionist of abs MBLAQ Lee Joon admitted that he is bad at showing his affection for a girl. He said that when he sees girls he likes on the subway or the bus he thinks to himself, “That girl is my girl.” Then he talked about his ideal girl. He said, “I can say everyone but my ideal girl is Kim Yuna.” 

MBLAQ Lee Joon Called 'Hubby' By Rain and Panicked

MBLAQ Lee Joon revealed boss Rain's shocking charms. On the April 30th broadcast of SBS Intimate Note 3, Lee Joon appeared as another on of Rain's best friend and revealed an interesting episode.

Lee Joon appeared on Ninja Assassin as the younger version of Rain's character and went to Hollywood with Rain during the filming period. Lee Joon said, "I'm not sure if he remembers this. I went overseas together with Rain for the poster photoshoot. He was swimming coolly. Suddenly he turned and flipped his hair back, and shouted "Hubby~ Hubby~ Hubby~". Everyone got curious. 

"I was caught off guard so I stayed still. Hyung asked, "If your girlfriend calls you that, how would you feel?". Then I found out he was acting as a girl." MC Shin Jung Hwan immediately said, "So Rain still has a female role to play".

In this episode, Lee Joon also revealed Rain's three anger stages. "When MBLAQ is rehearsing, Rain gets very angry at times. In the earliest stage, he would quietly point out things. Then, he would hit the sides with a stick while he says, "Practice more, sleep only when sleep is dead". Finally he would say in a tone sounding like he gave up, "Go." Danny Ahn who was also on the show said, "Just like what Park Jin Young used to say to GOD".

MBLAQ’s Lee Joon Debuts as a Variety Program Host

MBLAQ’s Lee Joon or known as the ‘Little Rain’ has yet another field to demonstrate his skills. As one of the ‘rising variety-idols’, he finally landed his first job as a host in a popular variety program.

The variety program on QTV channel is about determining women’s ranks and it is called SooJungNyuh (short form in Korean). Co-hosting with MC Lee HwiJae, he will work with 10 single female celebrities each week.

On June 30th, Lee Joon started his first recording and expressed his gratitude by saying, “It’s an honor being able to work with 10 beautiful women.” As usual, Lee Joon presented his dancing skill which received positive responses from all the females, including the guest celebrities and the staffs.

Lee Joon has his own corner in the show called ‘Ranks Determined by Joon‘ where he will present a new mission every week for the female celebrities in order to determine their ranks.

This week’s mission was to perform a sexy dance that could appeal to Lee Joon. HyunYoung prepared a provocative chair dance, while Lee JiHyun and Lee JiHye did their best with their sexy dance. In the end, Lee Joon ran off the set to escape from Jung JooRi’s ‘temptation.’

Would you like to see who was personally chosen by Lee Joon, as well as Jung JooRi’s shocking dance?  Don’t forget to catch the episode on QTV channel this July 8th at 11 pm (KST).

Lee Joon is already doing a good job as a host for a music performance program, can he be an excellent host for a variety program too? What do you think?

MBLAQ’s Lee Joon acting in Ninja Assassin

Lee Joon also acted in Rain movie "Ninja Assassin". They’re currently rockin’ the kpop scene & have no trouble with popularity & recognition, which is only to be expected as the world star as their producer. Many of you have probably heard of Rain’s new Hollywood movie Ninja Assassin, which has been discussed for quite a while now. It was also confirmed that Lee Joon, a vocalist in MBLAQ, also played a role in the movie as the teen version of Raizo (Rain’s character).

Lee Joon had auditioned for the movie back in February, when he was a trainee. He stated, “I sent a PR demo tape of my acting to the agency that was promoting Ninja Assassin. I didn’t expect to get accepted at all, but I found out that I passed the auditions! After I got the message, I went to Germany right after. The filming was two months long, and I had to film many action scenes and had to speak in English. I acted as the younger counterpart of Ji-hoon-hyung’s (Rain) character. I worked [very] hard filming this movie and you guys will be surprised.”

I don’t know about you, but I predict that Ninja Assassin will be a kick-ass movie. It’s already gotten positive reviews from critics and fans who’ve seen the sneak peak of the movie, and has lots of action and gore. The movie will be out Nov. 26th worldwide. If I were you, I’d spend the Thanksgiving Day in the theatre!

MBLAQ’s G.O and Lee Joon show their “chocolate abs”

We know how charismatic the MBLAQ guys can be on stage and through variety shows. But they have humor as well.

Both G.O and Lee Joon were guests recently on Park Kyung Lim’s Starry Starry Night radio show and their customary pictures for the show drew some interest.

In the photos, they actually show off their abs. Not their real abs though as they substitute that image with a bar of real chocolate.

Netizens commented, “They are so clever,” “They really have perfect sense,” etc.

MBLAQ are currently working on their new album.

GO MBLAQ Vocalist Profile

Jung Byung Hee (정병희) or GO is the main vocalist of Korean Boy Band MBLAQ. He is the second oldest member of the group after leader Seungho.

G.O. is a former member of Korean group, TYKEYS, a 3-member band that debuted in 2007.

MBLAQ’s G.O. is a pretty boy

After MBLAQ’s music video for Y and jacket photos were released, G.O. has been garnering attention for his drastic change from MBLAQ’s last manly concept.

In Y, we can see a side of G.O. we have not been able to see before…G.O. without his facial hair!

Since MBLAQ’s debut single, Oh Yeah and G.O.O.D. LUV, G.O. had been sporting a look that not many idols could pull off. He could proudly say that he was the only idol with facial hair! However, he shaved his facial hair for a drastic image change, and now, everyone can have a good look at the pretty boy that was hiding behind!

Fans commented on G.O.’s change by joking, “Where’s the beard?” “G.O. where are you?” “Put on your beard again!” 

Meanwhile, MBLAQ will be making their first comeback appearance on Mnet Countdown! on May 20th. Also, they will be part of the 2010 Dream Concert as well.

GQ shave his facial hair

MBLAQ G.O.‘s moustache is his trademark. Now, how would he look without it?

G.O. is known for his strong soulful vocals in MBLAQ. He is also in charge of the “hair” in the group. Guess I’m not the only one who’s curious about what he would look like without his moustache, netizens were curious too and decided to photoshop his signature masculine feature off! Take a look at the facial hair-less G.O.

I’m really not used to this look…but it’s totally fine with me!

It has also been revealed that G.O. may really be shedding his facial hair for MBLAQ‘s upcoming album. On a recent radio show, leader SeungHo gave a sneak peak of their new album by saying, “You will see G.O. looking younger!” The MC quickly asked if he was cutting his moustache and G.O. answered with a positive response.

What do you think? Does G.O. look better with the stache or without?

G.O thought Super Junior’s Heechul was gay

Although he has engaged in PDA towards men multiple times in the past, Super Junior’s Heechul clarified rumors surrounding his sexual orientation.

During the most recent episode of SBS Strong Heart, Heechul explained, “Because I have always had a feminine appearance long before my debut, I was enveloped in a lot of ridiculous rumors. There was even a love scandal between Mithra and me. That is why Mithra and I decided to only meet each other in secret.”

Mithra of Epik High, who was also present on the show, chimed in, “In the beginning, Heechul and I secretly met up. I even lied to Tablo to go see him.”

Heechul also revealed his weakness to mustaches. “Because I don’t have a mustache, I developed a desire for one. In that sense, I grew to like G.O. I recently obtained his phone number and contacted him. However, every time I called him, he said, “I’m in the middle of eating with Rain” and did not meet with me. In fact, today is the first time we met in person.”

To this, MBLAQ’s G.O replied, “To be honest, instead of having a meal with Rain, I thought Heechul was someone who liked guys.”

Heechul said, “It’s not easy to say these words as an idol, but I really like girls.”

Leeteuk corroborated Heechul’s statement, adding, “As the team leader, I am certain of that,” sending laughter on set.

G.O wants to be paired up with Jooyeon for We Got Married

MBLAQ’s G.O admitted on Infinity Girls Season 2 that he would want to be paired up with After School’s Jooyeon if he were to be on We Got Married. 

He said, “I’ve been friends with Jooyeon for three years and we have completely different personalities. I think we would show a funny marriage life.” Sounds like a good excuse to get closer to her.

The idols these days are really putting their ideal types out there. 

The episode airs on the 30th.

G.O Confesses “My age: 24, dating experience: 20 times.”

A cool casanova is in the house! G.O. of MBLAQ reveals details of his dating experiences on the latest Mnet A-LIVE recording.

Appearing together with 24 year old G.O. on the program are singers J.ea (formerly J) and Brown Eyed Soul‘s Jung Yeob.

Going against the conventional confessions of idols who have not yet been exposed to romantic relationships, G.O. broke the mold by revealing, “I’ve had many relationships.” He also added “I’ve had 20 relationships, because I dated at such young age, my feelings for my girlfriend was strong.” His honest confession shocked J.ea.

In response to G.O’s statement that his longest relationship lasted for only a year, J.ea joked, “Well, how long could they get since he’s already been in relationships 20 times at the age of 24“, sparking laughter from the audience.

The program also included performances from all three guests and after G.O and J.ea’s duet, Jung Yeob said, “Somehow I can tell that he was a good lover. He has great emotions when singing, and his looks and his way of talking…” G.O. then playfully replied “Because looks are enough, it’s okay if I don’t sing strongly.”

Not wanting to be left out by being the only one without a confession, Jung Yeob also shared his own romantic experiences, stating “Usually I like romantic stuff. I always plan fun events. Because whenever we meet I will give my girlfriend flowers as presents, the ahjumma at the flower store would think I’m buying for different girls.”

Jung Yeob also advised budding romantics by including, “Girls like it when the guy goes on his knees in front of many people and give the girl flowers, or when he just gives her a hug.”

And finally, given his numerous dating escapades, G.O. was quick to state “I suck at making events. I prepare well for my girlfriend but she would just ask me to buy flowers,” indicating that his girlfriend would rather him to stick to a simple show of affection or that G.O. was just being modest.

The program airs on 19th April at 11pm but if you’ve missed it, check out the performances below:
