● You debuted on May and it's already your 2nd year. Being the oldest from the group, What do you think of SHINee recently?
Onew: I think we are accustomed in many different ways. When we are going to do something before, we're always shaking because we feel nervous. Of course it doesn't mean that we are not nervous now, But we feel more comfortable when were going up on stage and have eye-contact with our fans, Since then we are having so much fun.
● Do you often have eye-contact with your fans?
Onew: Yes of course
● So during the time, do you stare at the fans eyes steadily?
Onew: I stare and show my smile.
● That will truly make the fans happy!
Onew: Yes. They feel happy so If we see their happy faces, we feel more happy.

● Do you really love yourself that much?
Onew: No! No! I'm not narcissistic ^▽^ It's not like that, I'm convincing of what the people are reacting to me like the things I said, the things that I had done. I don't have time to look myself at the actual spot so I check and get ready for the next recording.

Yes, because usually no male person who have this kind of hairstyle. I would like to try this uni-sexual image just for once. That's why I consult with my designer and chose this hairstyle.
● Oh yes, Taemin said "Please get a treatment" (laughs)
Ahahahaha (laughs) But if I don't get a treatment, my hair is really awful. I always dye my hair so it got damaged.

I do (laughs). If I only show this cool image of mine, I'm sure some day the limit will come that's why I think of showing this cute side.
