SHINee and f(x)‘s Victoria had fans doing a double take as they took on a classier image for their latest ‘High Cut‘ pictorial!
pulled off the ‘handsome male idol’ concept with their suits and ties,
yet leaving their chests bare foregoing their shirts. Minho
and Victoria also became the ultimate eye-candy couple with their back
hug pictorial that left fans awed at their visuals, while also a bit
who’ve known each other since prior to their debut also opened up about
the changes they’ve noticed in each other through the interview. Victoria shared, “When I look back, they’ve all become more mature. At the time, all of the members seemed like cute dongsengs but they’re men now.” SHINee also revealed Victoria’s transformation as they said, “Victoria
used to only able to say ‘Hello, I am Victoria’, but she can speak
Korean so well now. This is the power of broadcasts.”
Taemin also revealed the group’s intense workouts for the “Dream Girl” choreography, “Prior to learning the choreography, we worked on our stamina. The choreographer would make the hyungs
do a warm up with push ups saying, ‘You have to do this in order to
carry out the choreography’, and we did 100 push ups daily.”
Minho reflected on how they changed since their debut sharing, “We’ve
worked on becoming more comfortable on stage. When I look at our videos
at the start of our debut, I look at us and think we’re cute.” Key added, “I
can’t get myself to watch those videos. I start to feel the anxiety I
used to feel before going on stage telling myself, ‘You can’t mess up.
You have to perform well.’”
Unfortunately it seems Jonghyun was also absent from
this pictorial due to his nose injury. We hope to see him back soon
towards the latter half of SHINee’s promotions at least for their upcoming album, which will be revealed on the 29th.
You can catch more photos from this photoshoot through the release of ‘High Cut’s latest issue on the 18th!
