Woozi of SEVENTEEN is well-known for his work in writing and producing all of SEVENTEEN’s songs, and he has his fair share of copyrights to prove it.
Being the songwriter, Woozi’s responsibilities often include the duty of singing the guide version of a song, which demonstrates what the final version should sound like. Even for songs he’s written for other artists, such as I.O.I‘s “Downpour,” Woozi has been in charge of recording the guide.
As part of SEVENTEEN’s 2018 concert series “IDEAL CUT,” all 13 members performed their own individual solo songs. These, too, were largely produced by Woozi.
Rapper Mingyu‘s song, “Like the Beginning,” was a fresh and emotional ballad, and many fans enjoyed hearing his charming and tender vocals. This morning, Woozi surprised fans by posting a clip of himself singing the three-year-old song on his Instagram!

Fans instantly recognized the tune, and loved the sound of Woozi’s dulcet voice in his rendition.
