Yonghwa snaps photo with JJ Lin on the set of “Checkmate”

FNC Entertainment posted photos on January 28th of CNBLUE leader Jung Yonghwa as well as Mandopop superstar, JJ Lin on the set of their music video shoot for “Checkmate.”

Yonghwa and JJ Lin are pictured suited up with heavy coats on top of a roof overlooking the city. The two seemed very close as they posed together coolly with the city-scape backdrop. In addition, FNC revealed that the music video for “Checkmate” will be revealed on January 30th!

JJ Lin is one of four artists that participated in a collaboration with Yonghwa for his solo debut album One Fine Day which has topped charts both domestically and internationally! Some are attributing his explosive success in China as the “JJ Lin effect,” citing his collaboration as a point of interest for Chinese and Taiwanese fans.

Recently, JJ Lin became the first Mandopop artist to ever perform on a music stage in Mandarin after he and Yonghwa performed “Checkmate” on KBS Music Bank.

Are you looking forward to their music video?
