All of the members have really strong personalities, so it’s probably really hard for him to bring all of us together as a group. There are times when he jokes around with us, but he’s the one who works the hardest. Right now Onew hyung is really busy, but even so the way he never forgets to smile… seeing that makes me feel really good. Please stay the same Onew hyung that you are now.
