    More Fun Facts about Jonghyun:

    *Tends to talk at a really fast speed when he gets nervous, but because he talks a lot usually, nobody ever notices that habit of his.

    *Says that there is no shortcut to achieving perfection, just hard work and more hard work.

    *Has a lot of charisma on stage, but is very endearing and fun to be with off stage, before debut, he chats with Taemin everyday when returning home, is the member who is the most unanimous with his relaxation and lifestyle.

    *Regardless of anything, no matter how many times he had performed on stage, whenever he hears his own song he will still get exceptionally excited, will lipsynch along, dance along, fidget around in his seat, even when he chokes on water he will still remain engrossed.

    *A very lively student in high school, able to digest English and Korean songs very well. Formed a band, composed music during that time, believes that if you truly like something, it is not difficult to persevere on.

    *Understands the importance of heath, so does not eat stuff like instant noodles even when he is very hungry.

    *Is not scared of the camera at all, a 180 degree display or 360 degree all show? Just state it.

    *Feels that he is a good hyung, and a good dongseng to the members, if not for the fact that they always interrupt him which makes him flares up at them shouting “Keep quiet!” at times, his image is pretty perfect.

    *Why cover up if you make a mistake, just admit it truthfully won’t it be good?

    * Says that if he were to become a girl, it will be better to let Key be his boyfriend, setting aside the good personality, Key is very honest, which fits his view in life.

    * Has a lot of notices, will show off to his members after returning to the dorm. Will also miss his members whom he don’t know what they are doing while he is at certain shows/programs, if there is a chance, he will like to bring all his members along.

    *The only secret to maintaining a good complexion despite a very hectic schedule is to simply maintain a positive mindset.

    *Is very proficient in the guitar, bass and piano.

    *Wakes up the earliest in the dorm, will wake up Key after he is done with washing up, Key will then wake Onew up, then Taemin and lastly, Minho — “I am the one who wakes up the earliest! I am most confident about it!”

    Yes, there will be a SHINee thread, idk where blinger is, as soon as she shows up. This week was all about Taemin slaying music shows, Onew drama sky rocking rating, Minho's soon to be released Movies, Jonghyun taking another step in song writing, and KEY being mysterious I think he has something coming up

    blue night radio ♡ 160315

    jonghyun: i’m pretty sure that i’ve discussed this before, but i think it’s important to distinguish between the things that you want to do and the things that you have to do. to do the things you want to do you also have to do the things you have to do. i also think it’s important to find out what the things you want to do are after you’ve done those things that you needed to do.

    jonghyun: white day, valentine’s day, pepero day …
    ha sang wook: why are there so many days like that …

    [article] [duet request 1]: shinee’s onew - jonghyun, sing the aesthetic of “contrast”.
    journalist: kim joo hyun of beff report, kjkj803@beffreport.com
    translation: @sullaem (please do not edit or report without credit)

    shinee’s main vocals who sing with the aesthetic of “contrast”, somewhere in the chasm between earth and sky.

    [editor’s note] “duet: a term that can refer to a double pane window, or a musical duet. this is the idol - group vocal duet that beff report editor wants to see. here, we will introduce a duo i want to hear and see with unique vocal tones that aren’t similar, yet still captivate the ear.

    [duet request 1] #shinee #jonghyun #onew #sleeptalking(pleasedon'tgo) #growth

    shinee’s jonghyun and onew, who debuted under sm entertainment in 2008, have become the first protagonists of this special feature. jonghyun and onew, the main vocals in the nation’s top class idol group shinee, are singers with distinctively unique vocal colors. jonghyun and onew already have a duet song called ”sleeptalking (please don’t go)“, but due to it being (released) all the way back on their 2009 album, romeo and their lack of activities beyond, they have been selected for [duet request].

    truth be told, it becomes difficult to draw the distinction between main vocal and subvocal when it comes to shinee. shinee’s greatest strength is that they’ve dismantled the boundaries between the role of main vocal and subvocal. for groups, balanced growth results in longevity, and this point has become both shinee’s ”color“ and their ”worth“. and it goes without saying how particularily remarkable maknae tamein’s growth has been. in the midst of each member’s solidity, jonghyun and onew provide a strong vocal foundation. while jonghyun moves hearts with a vocal color that possesses both depth and technicality, onew tugs at heartstrings with a voice that’s calm and understated.

    let us analyze their duet song, ”sleeptalking“. the lines that onew sings in the songs introduction — ”in my dreams last night, you drew me close / your whispered words, your hair that caressed my face“ — approaches us in a reserved, yet resonat way. he sings the start of the song modestly, yet he makes us listen with bated breath. next, behind solemn onew, jonghyun steps in and paves the way to the highlight of the song, singing, ”now that i’ve woken from my dream, it’s still all too clear / but the tears that welled in my eyes told me / ypour presence was only a dream.

    the harmony that builds during the chorus — ”you can’t, you can’t, please don’t go like this / just once, just once, please hold me in your arms again“ — doesn’t fall short in any respect, nor does it feel overbearing. though they each have completely different vocal colors, we get the feeling of onew supporting jonghyun’s overflowing sensitivity, and jonghyun supporting onew’s restrained composure. they each sing of a break up in different methods, but the song isn’t tedious by any means. rather, the more you reflect on it, the more heartbreaking it becomes - which makes the duet too precious to deem just another song by ”some idol group’s main vocals who can sing a bit.“ this is the kind of duet this song has become.

    songs like ”so sick“ and ”because of you“, which jonghyun and onew have also sung together, reveal their strengths as well. when many people (who don’t listen to shinee’s music) counter with the notion that jonghyun and onew’s voices are too different from each other, it feels like it would be possible to respond that the two of them sing with an aesthetic of “contrast”. though the chasm between them is as vast as the distance between the earth and sky, they cannot be separated from each other; on the contrary, they actually suit each other when brought together. you could say this is the reason why they’ve been selected for [duet request].

    when will we be able to see jonghyun and onew duet again? as any song they sing would become a good song, and many people wish for the two of them to do another duet, won’t good news arrive someday to those who wait? for all shinee members, including onew and jonghyun, — who are active as all-powerful entertainers in many areas not solely limited to music — we continue cheering on their dazzling growth.

    [translator’s note] “aesthetic of contrast” should not be mistaken with “contrasting aesthetics”. the reporter is not simply saying onew and jonghyun’s voices have different aesthetics, but rather that their voices create an aesthetic that represents the convcept of contrast itself when they sing together.
