Who Is the Leader of TWS?

Pledis Entertainment K-pop boy group TWS is giving the world its unique “boyhood pop” style of music, trying to capture a distinct moment in time similarly to how SM Entertainment’s RIIZE and KOZ Entertainment’s Boynextdoor are also capturing memories with their music. In that sense, the fifth generation of K-pop is a surprisingly soft and emotional era for boy groups. For TWS in particular, you might be wondering who is leading this energetic but thoughtful bunch of guys. So among Shinyu, Dohoon, Youngjae, Hanjin, Jihoon, and Kyungmin, here is the complete answer to who the leader of TWS is.

Shinyu Is the Leader of TWS

Shinyu is the leader. He originally confirmed this in a Weverse post introducing himself on January 9, 2024. On January 13, 2024, “Think About Us!” member profiles were released for all six members of the group on Weverse, which provided further insight into Shinyu and the others. For instance, Shinyu thinks of his role in the group as being the oldest brother and even the “father” in TWS. He is indeed the oldest member of TWS.

Deriving more information from “Think About Us!,” Shinyu selected hamburgers as his favorite food, a baby giraffe as his favorite animal, bowling as his favorite exercise activity, and winter as his favorite season. He relieves stress by painting and likes to just get under the covers and lie down to relax. His bucket list at this time prior to debut included holding a concert, doing a fan signing, and generally striving for happiness. Subsequently, Shinyu has said that he thinks he looks like a sloth, and since he can sleep for 20 hours a day, it feels fitting.

Prior to debut, there were anecdotal, unverified stories on Spinspin.net about Shinyu from his time in school, claiming that he was essentially revered for being handsome and that he was very popular. These are amusing stories that, while unconfirmed, are probably somewhere in the realm of true.
