Let’s Talk About SHINee
SHINee (샤이니) is a South Korea boy group that debuted under SM Entertainment on May 25, 2008. SM Entertainment aimed for SHINee to be trendsetters in all areas of music, fashion, and dance. The name SHINee comes from shine, meaning light, and the suffix ee, therefore meaning “one who receives the light.” Their fans are called SHINee World (Shawol).
Originally, the group consisted of five people, Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin. Sadly, the main vocalist, Jonghyun, passed away on December 18, 2017. After that incident, SHINee went on a hiatus for 3 months before coming back for their Japan Tour in February.

Role Model for Rookie Groups
SHINee is considered one of the best live vocal groups in K-pop despite having to dance to strict choreography. The group has become a role model for rookie groups. Even the hottest idol in Korea right now, Kang Daniel, mentioned that SHINee is the group that motivated him to become an idol. Daniel said on Master Key, “I really like SHINee sunbaenim. I realized my dream while watching ‘Ring Ding Dong’”.
SHINee’s junior in the company, NCT, is also known for their love towards SHINee. NCT 127’s maknae Haechan said, “Taemin is my role model. SHINee’s “Replay” was my first ever K-pop song. It was like destiny. In the morning, I got up so early before going to school, and I turned on the TV. And, the music video for “Replay” was about to begin. Watching the music video, I thought I want to film such a great music video and show such a great performance.”
