Representatives revealed, “We have some unfortunate news to share with our fans. SHINee’s Onew and Minho will be temporarily leaving their MC duties at ‘Show! Music Core’ due to their international activities. This will be their last week, so we ask that the fans continue to give them their love and support so that they may focus on their activities overseas. Thank you!”
