Myung's role in Dream Theater is significantly subdued compared to the other co-founders Portnoy and Petrucci, with Myung preferring to defer to them in decisions and song-writing, instead focusing on mastering his instrument, though it is said that he rarely voices an opinion, when he does it carries a great deal of weight with the band. Myung is known to be shy in public and rarely gives interviews or do any form of public speaking, leading some fans to believe that he does not speak English, though he speaks it perfectly. Myung will occasionally write lyrics for Dream Theater, though before writing the lyrics to "Breaking all Illusions," the eighth track on [[A Dramatic Turn of Events]], he hadn't done so since the song Fatal Tragedy from [[Scenes From A Memory]], a 12-year gap. This is due in part to a new policy Portnoy created that the person who wrote lyrics for a song must structure them to the song, as Myung's lyrics were generally freeform and songs had to be re-written to accommodate them.
