Onew shared the burdens of being the leader of Shinee.
Onew was given a vacation for four days and went to Vietnam which was shown on MBC’s ‘New Years Special, One of Shinee’s Great Days’ that was broadcast on the 10th.
Onew was the only member of Shinee to go to a tropical area. He stated, “Honestly, I felt a lot of pressure for two years since my debut. I thought ‘I need to lead these friends well’ and it was difficult because of those thoughts” and shared his feelings.
Even though Onew felt pressure due to being a leader, the love that Shinee received made him feel better.
He also talked about the five years since his debut by saying, “Instead of leading, I think of going together with them and those pressures went away.”
