Onew x Taemin: Always making each other smile, the warm, fluffy, and healing pair.

Taemin: Onew-hyung has always been a listener and has talked with me a lot regarding various things. After this, I will continue to depend on him.

Onew: Taemin is really my cute younger brother. Our ages are far apart and the difference in our ideas are surprising, but in that sense, it is interesting.

Taemin: Am I interesting?

Onew: Thanks to Taemin, there are times when we encounter “miraculous experiences” I wouldn’t have even imagined.

Taemin: Did you mean…Is that because I always destroy stuff and people call me “magic hands”?

Onew: Well, there are times like that, too. (LOL)


Taemin: I’m always depending on Onew-hyung.

Onew: With Taemin is a fresh experience every time.

Taemin: How are you smiling like that?

Onew: Because of Taemin I’m always laughing/smiling



Onew x Minho – Like in soccer, they’re the defense and attack pair

Onew: Whatever happens, he is by our side and calls out to us. Minho is really a person who becomes our strength in any situation.

Minho: Ohh! *high-fives*

Onew: It’s not only with me, even with other members, he is our heart aid and is a very important existence to all of us.

Minho: Ohh! *high-fives* For me, Onew-kun is our immovable defense.

Onew: Eh? Is it a soccer reference?

Minho: Since he is always very steadfast, all of us depend on him.


Onew: Minho becomes our strength in whatever situation.

Onew: We’re always reassured by his courage.

Minho: Onew is SHINee’s super defense!

Onew: Eh?!



Onew x Key – SHINee’s Leader and SHINee’s brain.

Key: Recently, Onew seems to be so obedient. I think I know the reason for it.

Onew: What is it?

Key: Although we always seem to forget, you’re already 25 years old (LOL). But you sometimes act younger than the rest of us.

Onew: Key is just more mature than I am. Key’s mindset is to take out the parts that cause us (SHINee) uneasiness/anxiety and use them as an opportunity to try out new things.

Key: (seriously) We weren’t really aware of it, but we really have grown up… (*)


Onew: Whatever in Key’s head (his ideas/thoughts/etc) is very important to SHINee!

Key: Onew will catch up eventually (LOL) (**)

Onew: I want Key to talk about opportunities always.




Jonghyun x Onew: The seniors who understand and worry for each other.

Onew: I like Jonghyun’s mouth.

Jonghyun: Mouth?

Onew: Because he can put his own thoughts into his own words and convey them properly. I think his power to express things is amazing.

Jonghyun: Then you like my words, you mean. Not my mouth (LOL). As for me, I like Onew-kun’s funny side (how he makes people laugh). But actually I wish that Onew-kun will fix a part of him, too.

Onew: Where, where?

Jonghyun: Sometimes, your jokes are hard to understand so it’s bothersome (LOL).

Onew: …….I’m sorry (LOL).


Jonghyun: Onew-kun! Sometimes your gags are hard to understand! LOL

Onew: I think it’s amazing how (Jonghyun) expresses in his own words.
