[NEWS] 130225 Super Junior's Ryeowook includes Onew in his potential "Ryeo-Line" group

Posted Image

In a recent photoshoot for star1 magazine, Super Junior's Ryeowook revealed that his dream for 2013 is to create the "Ryeo-Line", a group which he can lead. In addition to that, he also named few potential members that he wanted to recruit. They are ZE:A's Hyungsik, Infinite's Sunggyu, EXO members, and SHINee's Onew. The criteria is that his members must be nice and can sing well.

In addition to that, he also stated that he wanted his "Ryeo-Line" to compete with fellow member Kyuhyun's "Kyu-Line" that includes TVXQ's Changmin, SHINee's Minho, CNBLUE's Jonghyun and Super Junior's Siwon.

Ryeowook explained that his desire to create the "Ryeo-Line" is that he wanted to be called 'hyung', since the members of his own group treat him as the youngest and he doesn't have any siblings.

[NEWS] 130224 SHINee embarks on a successful comeback weekend with performances on all four music shows

Posted Image

SHINee is back, back, back again! The shining five released their third studio album "Dream Girl" on February 19th, and were immediately swept into a whirlwind of promotions. They made their comeback performances on M! Countdown, Music Bank, Music Core, and Inkigayo this weekend, showing off admirable vocals and spectacular new choreography to title track "Dream Girl".

SHINee's first-ever music show performance of "Dream Girl" was on Mnet's M! Countdown on February 21st. At first glance the performance seemed to go on without a hitch, but hawk-eyed fans spotted Minho's microphone stand breaking halfway through. The rest of SHINee also noticed Minho's predicament, and worked together to fix the mistake while keeping themselves completely composed. SHINee was later commended for their professionalism and ability to react to the situation in a way that made the slip-up almost completely unnoticeable.

Second up was SHINee's performance on KBS Music Bank. SHINee was featured in a comeback interview during the show. Their first song, Beautiful, was set on a stage full of color. SHINee went on to perform Dream Girl so flawlessly that viewers wondered whether or not the performance was lipsynced, when it was indeed live. Shawols were delighted to watch Jonghyun, Key, and Minho playing around during the ending stage, doing the dance to Sistar19's "Gone Not Around Any Longer".

On MBC Music Core, SHINee performed Beautiful on a retro stage, once again showcasing a fun and refreshing side to themselves. The camera work during the Dream Girl performance showcased the intricacies of SHINee's choreography. Dream Girl was as full of intensity as ever, and SHINee closed the show with a dazzling display of high notes.

Last but definitely not least was SHINee's comeback stage on SBS Inkigayo. Another comeback interview preceded their performances halfway through the show. Finally, SHINee made a memorable entrance with Dream Girl where the members stood in a circle on an elevated stage while being surrounded by bright lights. The performance was pre-recorded on February 19th. SHINee went on to perform Beautiful right afterwards. Balloons were released onto the audience and stage as SHINee ended the song.

Shawols celebrated SHINee's comeback on Twitter by trending #SHINeeDreamGirlCB, #SHINeeMuCoreCB, and #SHINeeInkigayoCB in first place on the Worldwide trendlist throughout the weekend.

SHINee will be reappearing for more performances on next weekend's music shows. Be sure to vote for SHINee to win on the next episode of M! Countdown!

[NEWS] 130224 SHINee wants to be good role models for rookie artists

Backstage at KBS 2TV‘s ‘Music Bank‘ on the 22nd, SHINee‘s Minho opened up about his group’s latest comeback.

Minho shared, “I think we came back with a bit of nervousness due to the pressure to excel. Although [‘Dream Girl’] is good, it is more spectacular when you see it with the performance. I think more people will like it after seeing us perform. Rather than trying to go above people’s expectations, we are trying to show a new style of performance.”

To make up for SHINee’s 11-month hiatus, Minho shared his plans to be active in Korea until fans eventually get sick of him (if that’s ever possible) and revealed, “We plan to conduct many activities in Korea this year. I personally want to do a lot of it. We plan to perform in Korea until people get tired of us and say ‘why don’t you start performing overseas?”

Minho also wants to be a role model for rookie singers stating, “Upon seeing more and more rookie singers, I think to myself ‘I should work harder and show a better side’ so that we can hear that we’re good seniors and we want to be good role models.” It seems SHINee have already accomplished their goal of becoming good examples by recently proving why they’re masters on stage.

[NEWS] 130223 SHINee’s “Dream Girl” MV, AKA The Best Music Video SM Has Ever Made

Rest assured, all: I’ll spare you the inevitable eyerolling from hearing yet another “SHINee’s Back” pun in regard to SHINee‘s recent return to the Korean music scene. In all honesty, it doesn’t feel as if SHINee’s been away for all that long; they were still making variety show appearances as a group in mid-August of last year, and they’ve been extremely active in Japan. Three new singles and an arena tour within the past year is nothing to sneeze at, so there certainly hasn’t been a shortage of new material from them.

Nevertheless, SHINee is indeed back. Their return to Korea has been met with quite a bit of fanfare; they’re currently being featured in their own variety show, and the fact that Dream Girl is a full-length album and is thus due for some heavy-duty promotions probably means that the group has a ton of variety show appearances lined up ahead of them. More than that, however, the music video for Dream Girl — arguably the centerpiece of this round of promotions — is pleasantly surprising in its cohesiveness, creativity, and in all the attention paid to detail. And make no mistake: this is still an SM-produced music video we’re talking about here. “Creativity” and “SM-produced music video” — who’da thunk it?

In all seriousness, “Dream Girl” shows some of the most mature work that both SHINee and SM’s production team has done so far. Don’t be fooled by the array of rainbow colors and obligatory cute faces in the music video. The “Dream Girl” MV is perhaps one of the first times SM has managed to successfully create an “idol MV” without compromising artistic quality — a task that is a lot trickier than one might think.
The running complaint about SM’s music videos is that they’re formulaic, and obviously so: two box-like sets, close-up shots of each member, maybe a storyline sequence…but only if you’re lucky. All of SM’s videos have been produced in an identical fashion since the beginning of time (H.O.T.’s “We Are The Future,” anyone?) with very few exceptions. Understandably, SM videos have earned a reputation of being painfully unoriginal and boring to watch. Even the most defensive fans of SM groups seem to have a difficult time defending the quality of these videos; many join along with the chorus of dissenters bemoaning the loss of another potentially enjoyable MV to yet another instance of “dancing in a box.”
So what makes the “Dream Girl” MV so different? The formula is still the same, and SM’s stylistic fingerprints are still all over this MV. But let’s assume for a moment that there’s this mystical Music Video Rulebook hidden somewhere in Lee Soo-man‘s desk, and every music video produced under SM has to follow a very strict checklist as dictated by this rulebook:
  1. The opening shot needs to contain all of the group members in full view.
  2. Close-up shots of every member.
  3. At least two different, contrasting full shots of the entire group doing the choreography
  4. If you can fit anything else into the video after everything above has already been established, then go ahead. And good luck.
Good luck, indeed. Just from looking at SM’s music video backlog, one can guess that it’s probably a lot harder than it looks to expand a music video beyond the essentials. Why? Well, it doesn’t seem that too many people have really tried to do so. But at the same time, it hasn’t really been necessary to expand beyond the essentials because SM does the essentials so well. The solo shots are always crisp and well-composed, the choreography is captured extremely well, and the lipsynching in the solo shots look natural and convincing. This is oftentimes a lot harder than it looks; such a formulaic and clean-cut approach to shooting means that the producers don’t have much “filler” to work with and thus have to take extra care in ensuring that every shot is flawless in its simplicity. I think these are things that we as fans oftentimes take for granted; as boring as SM might be in producing their music videos, they certainly have the basics down pat and they execute them better than most other K-pop production companies out there.

It takes a lot of work just to get the basics down, which is exactly why the “Dream Girl” music video is so impressive. Upon first look, it’s apparent that the video doesn’t have the same obvious, formulaic feel as SM’s other videos. There’s a natural flow in its movement that immerses the viewer into the video and makes it exciting to watch. The “Dream Girl” MV is a very involved and very captivating piece of cinematography — and yet, it doesn’t stray from that same essential formula exhibited in all of SM’s other music videos.
The reason why “Dream Girl” is so good is because it retains the cleanness and precision of that essential formula while filling every remaining nook and cranny of the video with unabashed artistry. You see this through the liberties taken with the solo shots — placing the members off-center of the shot, challenging spacial perception through the trampoline “dream” sequences, diversifying camera angles with the bed shots, and so on. The sets are giant optical illusions that require skilled camerawork in order to capture properly, and the color palette throughout the video is just nuts: obviously there are tons of bright colors, but they’re also contrasted by sleek greys and blues, muted maroons and greens, and even a freaking hot pink wall in some of the larger sets.
The editing of the video, though, is what really sold me. Perhaps the biggest reason why SM videos are so boring is because the cuts between shots are done arbitrarily without much heed taken to the pacing and the beat of the music. Half of the reason why this music video does such a good job of sucking the viewer in is because the cuts are perfectly timed with the music, to the point where it almost seems as if the video is making the music. (If you don’t know what I mean, watch the MV again while keeping that phrase in mind. Your universe will be thoroughly rocked.)

And the colorful static blips — though not the easiest things on the eyes — do a great job of tying the video together and keeping the viewer on his/her toes. It’s the perfect testament to the amount of painstaking detail involved in the making of this video. All in all, the “Dream Girl” MV is a visual playground that only works as well as it does because of the level of careful attention paid to detail.

This video was extremely ballsy, and there were so many places where things could have easily clashed and gone haywire. But in the end, all of it worked, and it’s no doubt due to the fact that a) believe it or not, SM’s creative staff are actually creative and know how to do their jobs, and b) the “essential formula” is still the backbone of the video.

Let’s get one thing straight: all K-pop idol music videos share one very important unique trait in that their two main objectives are 1) to make the idols look as good as possible, and 2) to make the choreography look as good as possible. When one considers the nature of idoldom, it’s easy to understand why this makes sense. SM’s music video formula is centered around these two objectives, so when a video is produced with only those two objectives in mind and nothing else, it’s easy to write it off as being a boring video whose sole purpose is just to pander to the fangirls. But at the same time, these two objectives serve an important role in keeping the video structured, focused, and clean. The main point of the solo shots is the idol’s face. The main point of the group shot is the choreography. These are two things that can constantly draw the viewer back into the video and create a sense of focus that helps keeps the viewer engaged. Of course, if your entire video only consists of those two things (as most SM videos do), you’re going to wind up with a painfully boring video. But if your video doesn’t have a single anchor point like a solo shot or a dance shot and consists solely of different storylines or wide-angle shots with lots of movement or what-have-you, then you run the risk of confusing and overwhelming the viewer.

SM has mastered the art of the idol music video, but this is the first time they’ve made significant strides in expanding beyond their strengths in an artistic manner. The result of it is perhaps SM’s strongest music video to date.
I’ll admit that I’m not a huge fan of “Dream Girl” as a song; it has a great beat but it’s super, super corny and kind of repetitive. In this regard, credit is due to the SHINee members for being able to sell a song as corny as “Dream Girl” in such a convincing manner. The members have really grown into their big-kid shoes within the last five years; one look at their “Replay” video really shows how distracting it can be to watch a video where the performers aren’t experienced enough to know how to fully blend themselves into the song and the visuals of the video. The SHINee members are completely convincing in “Dream Girl;” they are able to grasp the zanyness of the video and move with it in perfect sync. The partnership between the SHINee members and the music video (if a music video can be regarded as a separate, living entity) is seamless and perfectly synergetic.

The only complaint I have about the video is the random cuts to the shot of the members’ faces divided across five vertical panels. Conveniently, that shot usually accompanies the super-cheesy “Dream girl!” hook of the chorus. That particular shot really irritates me because it’s so out-of-line with the rest of the video and breaks up the flow. Then again, it only appears a handful of times so there’s still not that much room to complain.

All in all, I really couldn’t ask for more in a K-pop music video. I have a soft spot for “idol videos” if only because their simplicity is so difficult to pull off in a clean and convincing manner. SM has always done a great job of this, which is why I generally don’t complain about idols “dancing in a box” because dancing in a box is really just another way to show off the idols doing what they do best. Thus, a music video like “Dream Girl” that takes artistic liberties while retaining the basics is pretty much K-pop gold. In particular, it makes me really excited to see what SM might have in store for future music videos considering how far they were willing to stretch for “Dream Girl.” Of course, it’s important to note that SHINee is currently SM’s least risk-prone male group at the moment (in that SM is far less likely to take any artistic chances on DBSK or Super Junior because of their longer-lived and thus more “brittle” position in the industry), which is perhaps why SM is comfortable taking such big chances with SHINee’s material. It’s also probably why SM is so willing to invest so much energy in ironing out the details in SHINee’s material.

While it’s not to say that all of SHINee’s releases are masterful pieces of art (the “Dream Girl” album for one, is not), the fact that so much attention was spent on something as menial as a music video gives me hope. And even if the “Dream Girl” MV is a freak occurrence, and even if we go back to seeing boring, formulaic music videos next month…well, at least the “Dream Girl” MV will still be around to serve as proof that an SM video can go far, far beyond the box.

[NEWS] 130222 SHINee prove why they’re masters on stage

Every time  SHINee perform on stage, they only receive praise for their tremendous stage presence.

Most of the time, these groups pull off their choreography and singing flawlessly but there are times when unforeseen things occur. When these unexpected things happen, these groups are quick on their feet, quickly assessing a situation and smoothing things over.

SHINee have shown to be quick to react when a situation arises. During their ‘M! Countdown‘ comeback stage for “Dream Girl“, Minho‘s mic stand snapped, but he danced on as if nothing happened. As for the broken pieces on the stage, the other members expertly swept it off the stage as they danced on seamlessly, using their choreography to kick or slide the pieces off stage. During his solo part, Jonghyun slid his mic stand to Minho so the choreography could look natural.

Check out their performances below! Can you spot the mistakes?

[TRANS] 130221 SHINee's interview with L'Officiel Hommes Korea, March 2013

Posted Image

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

SHINee finally came back to waiting fans with their highly anticipated single “Dream Girl“, and it looks like Shawols weren’t just waiting around for nothing!

As soon as the album was released, the boys swept music charts in Korea, and as expected, SHINee’s popularity is incredible overseas as well. “Dream Girl” topped iTunes charts in Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan. Not only that, but it’s also charted very high in Thailand, the Philippines, and Macau as well as in countries like Sweden, Mexico, Portugal, Australia, and Norway.

The boys completed their showcase on the 20th, and they just wrapped up their first official comeback performance on ‘M! Countdown‘. One step closer to making it a ‘SHINee World’!

Check out their comeback below if you missed it!

[NEWS] 130221 SHINee take over fashion magazines

SHINee isn’t just sweeping the music scene with their “Dream Girl” comeback.

The boys became young rebels for the Marsh issue of Nylon, where they opened up about things they regret on set. Even though the concept was something the boys have never done before, they had no problem expertly leading the photo shoot.

SHINee also scored a 16-page spread in ‘L’Officiel Hommes‘, where they tossed aside the boyish, innocent image they took on for Nylon and and went for a completely masculine look instead. Jonghyun even had the chance to bear his abs, while Minho showed off his own arm muscles.

Check out the photos below!
