TVXQ's Changmin sings Winter's part in aespa's 'Next Level' in female key + learns the point choreography


On May 28, the girls of aespa appeared as guests on the Naver NOW. radio program, 'Changmin's Free Hug'!

On this day, fans were thrilled to see fellow SM Entertainment sunbae-hoobaes on a broadcast together. The aespa members chatted with host TVXQ's Changmin about their comeback single "Next Level", as well as their æ-characters, and stories from aespa's trainee days. 

One moment that particularly impressed fans was when Changmin was asked to sing a snippet of "Next Level" - more specifically, one of the highlight parts of the song! Many fans love the bridge of aespa's "Next Level" when members Ningning and Winter showcase their vocals to a beat change. Here, Changmin decided to try singing Winter's part in female key!

Check out Changmin's version of aespa's "Next Level" below:

Winter also sang the part for listeners on this day:

And of course, Changmin had to get up and learn the point choreography for "Next Level"!

Fans reacted with comments like:

"OMG I always thought that part sounded like a TVXQ song, but when Changmin sings it it's even more like one!"
"Please sing the entire song TT. I want to hear it TT."
"This is why he is the symbol of SM vocalists."
"I knew that he could do it but when I actually heard it, he did it even better than my expectations..."
"Changmin is Yoo Young Jin's first son."
"Killed it."
"He's not even bothered kekekeke."
"Wow it suddenly sounds like a TVXQ song."
"He should release a rock album."

Yesssss! As soon as I heard the song change in next level, I thought of TVXQ (and BoA). Changmin absolutely killed this (esp that “come on” part) but did we expect anything different?? He really is Yoo Youngjins first son lol
