If Jonghyun’s voice has a rich spectrum, Onew’s voice pierces one’s ears clearly.
It’s not simply because Onew throws sounds in a straight line, but because he knows how to make rhythm with lyrics groovy.
As SHINee’s music moves on from its early character with a flowing melody line to its current one with a strong rhythmic sense emphasized, Onew, who was a sub-vocalist, is rushing forward to the front.
