STAFF’S Fannacount 

When SHINee’s done with the rehearsal, Onew was the one who still stayed and bowed 90 degree to all the staffs. Then he walked into the backstage while taking off his jacket, revealing his T-shirt inside, he looks really sexy. At noon about 2 o’clock before the press conference, all the artists and their managers gathered at the hall near the lift. the conference room is on the same range with the office. When I went into the hall, there were 2 volunteers going with me, I went in last and the very first person I met was Onew, who was chatting with EXO and Minho and smiling so beautifully like sunshine. When I gained back my consciousness, I realized everyone is looking at me so I quickly walked inside. After that, all the artists moved to the press conference room and of course, on the way, they would have to walk pass the office, therefore I could look at Onew within a very close distance. He looks short next to Minho, both are thin. On the 28th night, when all of the artists had gone to the stage to get ready for the opening, Onew and CR went out last. Onew IS VERY POLITE. He bowed 90 degree to everyone. Because I had to stay in the backstage to monitor with the securities so when Onew went in to get changed (or to do anything), about 3 or 4 times, he run into me and the guards everytime and everytime he always bowed us politely. Even Onew himself found it funny because there’s too much greetings/bowing. Then we went on and on bowing to each other and Onew gave me a deadly EYE-CLOSED SMILE (I swear I almost cried at that time) I also want to add that I am a SHINee fan but most of the staffs who stayed there with me at the same area don’t even remember the artists name. But because of his polite act, all of the people there became fans of Onew (I’m also very happy about that). When it’s SHINee’s turn to perform, I had to go to the left backstage (VIP2), it’s SHINee’s waiting area. They went in when they’s done with the performances. Onew was very tired, he sit right on the floor and it wasn’t until 5 minutes later that he was able to stand up with the help of staffs. (I was 2 steps away from him but I didn’t dare to touch him, so heartbreaking). He sweat all over his body. After standing up, he run up stairs, breathing just for a bit and again, went out the stage while smiling to move to the encore part >< When the show finally ended, all the artists went to thank the staffs. They all bowed (but I notice Jonghyun didn’t, just nod his head coolly). At that time I was standing at the stairs (leading to the waiting room), on the right (VIP1/ to EXOand SHINee’s waiting room). Taemin and Minho also greeted a lot, Minho’s smile is really pretty, then Onew went up from behind me asking if we were ok, Minho looked at me and said “thank you” (I guess he didn’t hear me reply back or he was in a hurry so he didn’t say anything more). Onew was asked if he was fine by many staffs, his manager also went with him to help him walk. Though he was tired, smiles were always on his face. (T.T)

Onew is the most polite in the group (actually, the Vietnamese word used here has slightly different meaning from ‘polite’ in English, you can understand it as ‘docile’, ‘nice’, kind’, ‘obedient’, etc. I can’t find a more suitable word than ‘polite’ though the word’s often used to praise good-nature children^^), he bowed whenever he saw someone, not the normal nod but the 90 degree bow while saying “Anyeonhaseyo” out loud :3 Very adorable =)) He didn’t smile much and looked kinda sad, his pink MC shirt was really cute but when he had the vest (everybody’s outfit) on, don’t even question me =(( he looked extremely handsome and gentlemen-like. =((

Onew and Kim Ian was close during trainee days

[SM Actor Kim Ian- “Been through thick and thin with Henry, Onew….Savouring the ‘taste’ of acting…very happy/blissful

Even though they were both trainees during the same period (of time), Kim Ian who is older than Onew reminisces: “When (I was a) trainee, we would learn dancing from 10 in the morning to 10 at night, singing, acting, rap and among the trainees, only Onew stretched out his hand to me and went, “Hyung, let’s go practice/rehearse~”

Youtube playlist – Onew’s good manner

Onew is well known for his manner <3. So, I made this playlist compiling any videos where you can find and see Onew bowing 90 degrees to staffs and other artists, passing mic with manner, interacting with staffs, clearing up stuffs..anything that relates to politeness, respect, humbleness and etc. Those attitudes of him are not necessarily shown on the whole minutes of the videos, but they can be found somewhere in it ^^. More videos will be added. So, please drop a comment if you think of any videos are missing from the playlist and should be added too~ 🙂

Q: Both of you had some time off. I’m curious about how you spent that time.  

As you know, I had to take a long break due to my health condition. I really missed being on stage. Fortunately, the concert took place as planned last year, and in March SHINee will hold an exclusive concert at Tokyo Dome. We’re currently working hard to prepare for that. In the midst of that, I got invited to be in this pictorial, and so I excitedly boarded the plane to come here.

Q: Actually, before you guys took off and were in the lounge area, I heard that the both of you were very awkward with each other.

Leeteuk: Onew and I were of the relationship where we’d only just greet each other. Truthfully, I am sorry to SHINee about something. When other groups like f(x) or EXO were debuting, I helped them out by hosting their showcase or helping them make their slogan, like EXO’s ‘We are one.’ However, our timing didn’t work out with SHINee’s debut, so we weren’t able to interact with them in this way. So after thinking about who I should go on this trip with, I wondered what it’d be like to go with Onew. Onew-yah, see there is a deeper meaning as to why I wanted to come here with you~

Onew: Hahaha. I knew that I would be going with Teukie-hyung a while back. The first day on the plane, it was so awkward that we just kept watching movies. But on the other hand, I think our fans will like our collaboration, and so I look forward to it. Personally, this would be like a vacation for me so I definitely wanted to come. It was awkward at first, but hyung is good at leading, so it was fun. The staffs were especially good at responding to my humor.

Q: The 2 of you have your first vacation together, how do you feel?

Of course I had visited Singapore whenever we had a concert here, but this is the first time I’m here on vacation. I’ve always liked humid and warm places, and so as I got out from the plane with my padded jacket I shouted “It’s so nice!” I was worried that I would hurt my throat with my yelling. Hahaha. Because it was raining season, it rained for 4 days, which was a such a pity, but I’m very happy that I’m in a warm country.

Q: What would you say is the most memorable thing on this 4 days and 3 nights vacation?

When I had my solo shoot at the Movenpick hotel, I took a picture with the Merlion. I was told that was the daddy merlion. I wanted to take a picture with the other 2 Merlions, but I couldn’t find it. It was such a pity. When I had nothing on my schedule, I woke up early and swam in the beach, but I got tired within just a few minutes and had to go back. I rode the monorail, did indoor diving, ate ice cream at the shopping mall, and when I was at a toy store, someone asked “Do you want to buy this for someone?” I thought about it for a long time and wanted to buy everything! Although it was on a schedule, it was a good vacation. When the manager hyung and I wandered around, we walked beyond the tram by mistake, but that’s the fun part of going on vacation. There was one time when it rained pretty hard when I was on the way back to the hotel, I had to wait at the train station for quite a while and got caught in the rain while coming back. What is the most memorable thing for you, Teukie-hyung?

Q: I think Onew prepared a lot for this vacation on your own

I actually asked a friend who used to live in Singapore to recommend places that I should go. He recommended Dempsey hill which is located just behind Ochard road. On my first day here, we went there together and it was very nice. It isn’t just a seafood restaurant, it has an open-air cafe feel to it. It was nice. Ah! I heard it’s gorgeous at night. It’s a pity that I couldn’t go to Clarke Quay.

Q: Please say a few words to the fans, who you’re meeting through this pictorial in a long time

The collaboration between the 2 of us is very unique, I hope that the fans can feel a different kind of charm as they look at this pictorial. This year SHINee album will be out again, so please look forward to it. We’re currently working hard to prepared for the “SHINee World 2014~I’m Your Boy~Special Edition in Tokyo Dome” on March 14-15 at the Tokyo Dome. In addition to the concert, if opportunities arise I will show you various sides of me! Please give Onew a lot of support in the future!

tumblr_nih6yuRPtl1r8fs1io1_1280“Still awkward with hyung but lets have some champagne first”






tumblr_nih765YZEV1r8fs1io1_1280“I heard that there are 3 merlions in Singapore. They say one behind me is the daddy merlion”







“If you walk a bit from the resort, you’ll see the
Palawan beach. It’s cold in Korea, but it’s warm here, I like it!”





tumblr_nih72n2hK61r8fs1io1_1280“This is the beach tram that runs around Sentosa Island. It’s very vintage and picturesque”






tumblr_nih6vqNZBa1r8fs1io1_1280“Traveling freely on my own is nice, but I like to travel with others. Other people can offer better suggestions. I’m still lacking as a traveler, but I think walking around a bit is very good for relaxation, and the fascinating thing is seeing a new world unfolds around you. It’s a pity that I can’t meet the fans during that time. It’s so great to be able to meet everyone through this pictorial”




“It’s so great to be able to meet everyone in a long time. From now on, let’s meet more often”
