ONEW
What is the message you’re trying to send with this album?
“It's definitely SHINee!”

What do you see when you look back at your debut until now?
A lot of things have happened. I stood on stage and performed as SHINee while traveling to the UK, US, Japan, and various countries around the world. I was able to meet fans overseas. I collected these experiences and I was able to enjoy performing more.

How has your personally changed?
I’m not sure. Since I’ve experienced a lot, I’ve developed some know-hows or knacks. And I have a lot more thoughts and my views have widened.

Your musicals were successful.
While working on <Brothers Were Brave> and <Rock of Ages>, I felt that this area is very charming. If I get the chance, it’s something I want to keep doing in the future.

SHINee is an extremely stylish team. I’m curious as to how you dress normally.
Excluding outfits for official events or stages, I'm the type to go with comfortable styles.

What do you want to tell yourself this year?
Let’s be healthy.


JONGHYUN
You’re doing the photoshoot a month before your comeback.
What is the status of your album preparations?
It’s finished. It's going out now!

How would you make people anticipate it more?
You’ll be able to see a new SHINee that you couldn’t see in the past.

This is your third full album. Is there something different than before?
It’s similar in that we tried something new. We’re trying to show a variety and transformation of images. That’s how we work on music and find out more about our musical identity.

Are you satisfied with yourself?
I still lack a lot as as an artist. But in life, I want to give myself at least 60 points (laugh).

Tell us about your daily life, whether it be what music you listen to or what kind of styles you like.
I like emotional R&B music so I listen to them often. And rather than wearing clothes that are too comfortable, I prefer suits.

Your future plans.
I want to try being a producer, composer, or vocal director.


KEY
It’s been 6 years since your debut. What sort of time was it for five guys who spent it together?
We all started to talk a lot more. We voice our opinions about our work and music. Those opinions flourished and we were able to nicely establish SHINee’s identity. And I think we've become much stronger mentally.

What are you plans for 2013?
Since our 3rd full album is coming out, we plan on promoting actively. When we promoted “Sherlock” last year, we know many people were disappointed that the promotional time was short. We want to have more opportunities to meet our Korean fans this year. It’d be nice if they look forward to our new album.

I’m curious about the concept for this album.
We were storytelling with a feeling of being inside an imagination or fairytale.

Which music are you attracted to that’s different than SHINee’s music direction?
Under hip-hop.

SHINee always hot topic through sensational styling. I think yours is especially good.
I have a lot of interest in fashion. But there’s no style that I particularly prefer or stick to. Instead, I try to wear clothes of a different style every day. No matter what clothes I wear, the most important thing in the end is personality.

I think you’ll fit in well if you work in something fashion related.
If I get the chance... I also want to try MCing, being a radio DJ, and more.

What number would you express your satisfaction with as an artist, as yourself, and your life?
It’s 23 points and 23%. It’s the same number as my age.


MINHO
It’s been a long time. How have you been?
I was active as an actor through <For You In Full Blossom> last year. It was a good experience and I felt a lot of things. If I’m given an opportunity, I would like to try acting again. Anyway, I’m highly satisfied with my personal life. Every day is enjoyable and exciting.

Quite a lot of time has passed since you debuted and you’ve mainly done music promotions.
Thanks to that, I was able to try all kinds of music. I wanted to show various types of music while adding SHINee’s color in them.

How would you rate yourself as an artist?
Compared to the early days of my debut, I feel a lot more relaxed when I do broadcasts. I still think I’m incredibly lacking to even give myself a score.

How do you feel with your comeback ahead?
With my variety of experiences as a foundation, I want to show the fans an awesome performance. We'll want to display SHINee's diverse charms that seems like five but is actually one.

Tell us about your new album.
We tried out something that nobody has tried. And of course we worked hard to add in SHINee’s color. When you listen to the music, you’ll feel, “Definitely SHINee.”

A word to yourself for 2013.
Let’s grow!


TAEMIN
I remember how you looked when you debuted but now you’re an adult.
You've matured by working in society...
You can say that. I guess that’s why I pushed myself harder.

An example?
I’m the type to be strict and cold to myself. I’ve thought harshly about what I lack compared to other people.

SHINee is well known as SHINee. There are other members who tried musicals, dramas, etc.
Did you pass up those opportunities because you’re the maknae or did you have no intentions?
I don’t have really have plans aside from music. But I want to gradually try different things out, so I've been thinking about all sorts of things

What music do you personally like?
I listen to American indie band Fun’s songs often. I enjoy pop music such as Bruno Mars and more.

What style do you usually like?
Comfortable clothes to move in.

lol while Taemin is listening to Fun, I am listening to SHINee. XD
I loved this interview. Sweet SHINee bbs <3
keke~ Jong's really into this suit phase. Well.. it "suits" him. harharhar
I love this: "No matter what clothes I wear, the most important thing in the end is personality." But I wish he'd give himself more than 23%. :(
keke~ Minho, after you just claimed that TTBY was so taxing for you, you say this? "If I’m given an opportunity, I would like to try acting again. Anyway, I’m highly satisfied with my personal life. Every day is enjoyable and exciting." <-- I am so happy though for the last part. ^_^
This: "I wanted to show various types of music while adding SHINee’s color in them... Compared to the early days of my debut, I feel a lot more relaxed when I do broadcasts. I still think I’m incredibly lacking to even give myself a score." <-- bb. I give you a gazzillion points!!!!!!!! lol
"We'll want to display SHINee's diverse charms that seems like five but is actually one... We tried out something that nobody has tried. And of course we worked hard to add in SHINee’s color. When you listen to the music, you’ll feel, “Definitely SHINee.”"
I hope they are getting rest though... so busy. ^^

Onew: I’ve developed some know-hows or knacks
Are you talking about your uncanny ability to fall or trip on flat surfaces? That was the first thought that came to my mind while reading. xD


Key: It’s 23 points and 23%. It’s the same number as my age.
I wonder when you'll reach 100. xD


Minho: Anyway, I’m highly satisfied with my personal life.
Why did 2min come to my mind? My thoughts...

DEFINITELY SHINee! ♥

Yeah me and Taemin both like Bruno Mars. SHINee wants to be seen as one, thats very unique, usually artists want to be seen as individuals.

Is this the reason why he's been off lately? Well, I'm glad he is smiling again :)

MinTaeKey deserve a lot more credit than they give themselves. Always so hard on themselves...

What I was thinking too!

Key listening to music under hip-hop? Big Bang popped right out of my head. XD
I also imagined his evil laugh after that interviewer's comment of SHINee always hot topic through sensational styling. I think yours is especially good. HAHA.
Shinee- always humble. :)

Yes, Let's GROW!

I'll reach you. Someday. One day. cr: baekeyselu for icon.

They are much more open in their magazine interviews this promotion round. Perhaps they are growing more in the music industry and have more say now. I really appreciate reading their thoughts. SHINee is very down-to-earth and humble and it surely shows~

Sue2005 : (01 February 2016 - 04:24 PM) Hi all. How are you? Did you guys all know that allkpop is hosting an online pole for future WGM couple? Of course I believe it to be fake but it is our responsibility as Shawols to make SHINee win. Onew is picked from one of the SHINee members to be in this pole and is now in the final round against BTS Jin. We cant just let Jin win the tournament now can we? So I'm hoping all of you guys go to the website which I'm adding to this Shoutout and make Onew win. Of course you might think that what if this might be real? If it is real, then it is to our own advantage. Of course being in a fake marriage is not nice but this way we can see more of Onew on TV. We can see his cheerfulness, his sulking face, his lifestyle, his attitude towards the girl he "likes". We can see more of his natural self than what we see him on the stage. We can see so many different parts of Onew. So I'm hoping that you all vote for him regardless of this being fake or real because I cant see him lose to someone else. You guys can vote 15 times a day. Also if you want to vote more than 15 times then you have to change your Wi-Fi carrier. So for example your in one restaurant while doing your 15 votes using their Wi-Fi or hotspot, you can on the same day go to a different restraint and vote 15 times again using their Wi-Fi because both the restaurants have different internet access or carrier. Thank You. :)
