Onew Sangtae – this term was created by the other members of SHINee to describe his most unique character trait: “It is when Onew does something or says something on PURPOSE with an intention to make people laugh. E.G. Body gags, weird eye movements, weird body movements, weird sounds, sudden out-of-context words. However, most of the time, it ends up making the situation awkward.” (from Click here to watch several clips of classic Onew Sangtae!

Hyungwhore – a term netizens came up with to describe Minho’s tendency to befriend hyungs (“older brother to a male” in Korean) in many of the other idol groups. The hyung Minho spends the most time with is Changmin from TVXQ!
