SHINee's Onew reveals mystical, mysterious 'Blue' MV

SHINee's Onew revealed a mystical, mysterious music video for "Blue".

Onew is dropping his first solo album 'Voice' and title track "Blue" ahead of his military enlistment on December 10, and the MV features a mysterious theme surrounding a mysterious blue gem. As previously reported, Onew's title track "Blue" is an old, jazz-pop inspired R&B genre, comparing the feelings of loneliness to the vastness of the sea. 

Check out Onew's "Blue" MV above, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

What a beautiful MV. What an amazing voice.
It is very likely to be about Jonghyun, I feel like.
The 4 dimonds in the beginning could be the four remaining members, and then the diamond across the sky would be Jonghyun.

My take on this is that the people with their eyes covered are judgemental, critezining people, and when Onew is surrounded by them, perhaps about to crack from the pressure, the shining light (aka. Jonghyun) comes to give him strength.

And, though this could be me overanalyzing, when Onew places the sole diamond at that thing in the end, it has 5 mirrors surrounding it, which could symbolize that the 5 members will always be one group (like the diamond is SHINee, and the mirrors are the members). Idk.
Either way, it is such a beautiful piece of work, and it seems like it reflects the hardships Onew has been through the last years.
I wish all the best for him <3

I actually only see one diamond reflected on 5 mirrors, so here's my interpretation :


The shining and bright light from this diamond that used to reflect on these 5 mirrors died. He takes this dark diamond into his hand and left his place.

Walking in this blue and cold desert where everyone has a family or a lover, he is alone and everyone looked at him, judging him.

When he looked at his hand, he sees that this diamond turned on water, dropping dramatically on this stormy desert. When everyone crushes him by their glances, a bright diamond crashed on his hands. He finds a new light, he knows it's time to come back home with this new light, the bright light that these 5 mirrors used to reflect.


Onew is the leader of SHINee, he is the one who have to find and show the light, the path to all his members, even when this light died.


A bright light is shining somewhere in this sky, seeing this final scene makes my thoughts goes to Jonghyun...

I only saw that now. I agree with this.
Though I think the diamond has some connection to Jonghyun, or maybe (sort of what you said) Jonghyun is the link to SHINee's glory days, and so the diamond is sort of representing SHINee with Jonghyun.
I love the MV and the lyrics more and more as I listen to it. I've always loved Onew.
I hope he (and SHINee) can continue to show raw feelings, and be the inspiration the k-pop community needs to prevent tragedies.

I've been trying not to read Jonghyun into everything SHINee does from now on, but I think that diamond and the mirrors are definitely meant to represent SHINee at least.


I wonder if Onew losing the diamond outside, then having it returned to him and bringing it back into the ruined house is meant to represent his feelings of responsibility to SHINee as leader, and needing to return and be strong for all of them.

For me, I just want to CELEBRATE ONEW - just HIM...for his accomplishments, for his hard work, for his courage to comeback, for his strength to endure and overcome.

I have always liked him the most in Shinee. I like all the members, but there is something about him that tugs at my heartstrings :) Maybe because he is unassuming and is quietly confident in his abillities that he can stand aside and let others take the spotlight so they can shine. Maybe it is the smile that makes you feel warm and fuzzy and appreciated...what ever it is when they are together, my eyes just automatically zoom in to where he is.

So, I hope everyone just gives him the credit that is his due for being able to make and release this album. That everyone celebrates this man who despite all that has happened came back and gave us this beautiful mini album.

And to you Lee Jinki, just be who you are, do not be afraid to let people see YOU. Im sure like me, they will always support YOU...who you are, who you will be.

You are indeed the #Voice.

See you in 2020. Come back healthy and safe and release more albums, because we will be waiting.

I was so mesmerized by his voice & the imagery in the MV that I practically forgot to breath at times - as in, I literally had to remind myself to breathe. Superb. Thank you, our amazing leader Onew. We will meet again soon 💙

My goodness he doesn't usually get to sing like that as part of SHINee.


We all know what he's been through lately and he sings with such genuine feeling. I hope he can come back in a couple of years' time and continue making beautiful music, if that's what he wants to do.
