Recommended Posts

05/22 - Full MV update, 05/26 - Mini Album release
After spinning out such idol stars as BoA, Dong Bang Shin Ki, Super Junior, and Girls' Generation, SM Entertainment presents their newest face, Shinee. This contemporary boy band is formed by five teenagers namely Jong Hyun, Min Ho, On-u, Key, and Tae Min, the youngest member (only fourteen years old!) who boasts incredible dancing skills already acknowledged by many professional choreographers. A combination of the word "shine" and suffix "-ee", the group's name carries the meaning of "one who receives light" or "one under the spotlight". Their mission is to offer a variety of music that will encompass a wide spectrum of fans. Distinguishing themselves as a contemporary band, Shinee aims to be a trend-setter in various aspects of entertainment including music, dance, and fashion. Already being touted as the next idol sensational, Shinee is expected to cause some major ripples in the K-pop scene.




(ps this song was composed by a string of big time composers from SM, including SM's main composer, Yoo Young Jin

Def more of a RNB Big Bang feel, this is quite new for SM.

SM bought like 3 to 4 new domains including shinee which happens to be the new group name.


(L-R Onew, Jonghyun, Minho, Taemin, Key)

They're suppose to be SM's version of a mix of BB + FT Island (or seem to be according to bug). The youngest member is 14 (Taemin), and is suppose to have like amazing dancing skills. They will be a contemporary band. Shinee means "a person who receives a light". Their ages range from 14-18

The will release a preview on May 22 as well as begin promotion :)

Would it be pronounced Shin-Ee or Shiny?

Ah one of them reminds me of my neighbour :S

The concept is not bad, but they look more like a mix of Big Bang and F.T Island

When I saw this, I was a bit annoyed.

I am okay with the current people,but what is the point of creating new groups? Okay yes LSM wants to conquer the asia and expand to other countries as well, but seriously he needs to work on his current people first.

I feel like CSJH has great potential, but they lack the promotions.. and that is the same for Jang Ri In.

I don't have nothing against his plan, but please promote other people, UGH.

wow 14 years old...

SM version of FT Island? nobody can replace FT Island.

My goodness 14 years old? Is it just me or does SM seem to be copying JE? They just had HSJ debut with 14 year olds too. Hmm... can't wait to hear from these kids!
