Starting right from the beginning of his idol journey, Hyungwon’s vocals while soft and serene have a sense of power and distinct appeal, which was evident even during his trainee days on Mnet’s No Mercy.

Those performances really reiterated the fact that he is a perfect member to be a part of the super group MONSTA X.
After their debut, with each album and each cover Hyungwon has shone with improvements in every comeback. Especially in tracks like “Zero”, “Sweetheart (White Sugar),” “Lonely Christmas”, “Mohae”, “Alligator”, “Blind”, “Jealousy”, “U R”, “Underwater”, and “Breathe For You” to name a few, his calm voice effortlessly adds to the beauty of the songs and brilliantly brings out the different themes and emotions that the tracks aim to evoke.
With the group’s recent comeback with the platinum album FATAL LOVE, Hyungwon has once again shown his musical prowess and this time in a bigger and better way.
Starting with the title track “Love Killa”, Hyungwon’s voice stands out by adding a sensuous appeal to the song, while adding a certain lethal softness amidst the otherwise hardhitting melody, making it even more mellifluous to listeners.

In contrast to his flawless and soft voice notes, Hyungwon’s other side is that of the talented DJ H.ONE. He has shown his high powered DJing skills in festivals like Ultra Music Festival Korea (UMF) in 2017 and 2018 and as well as KCON Japan 2017. As DJ H.ONE he has released impressive tracks like “ONE”, “MY NAME” and “BAM! BAM! BAM!” which also featured fellow MONSTA X member Joohoney.
These tracks show the multifold talents of Hyungwon and reiterate the fact that his range and capabilities span a vast radius of the creative world. And fans have evidently loved this side with the amazing reception DJ H.ONE has got during the festivals as well as during MONSTA X’s concerts.
With each aspect of this bedazzling MONSTA X member, it is clear how much music means to Hyungwon and his vast bandwidth when it comes to being versatile. And there is no doubt that he is one artist who should never be slept on!
