[NEWS] SHINee Key & Dana talks about their Kiss scene in ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ Musical on MBC Radio Star

Key and Dana were guest stars on the September 18 installment of MBC's 'Radio Star.’  On this day, the two talked about their kiss scene in the musical ‘Bonnie & Clyde.’

It was revealed that Dana felt awkward about the kiss because the two of them were very close.  Key then said something shocking: “We made a rule that we would not use our tongues.”

Kyuhyun asked who made up that rule.  Key pointed to Dana and Dana yelled, “You did!" She quickly became a victim of Key’s teasing as she tried to convince everyone that Key was the one who made up the rule.  Kim Gu Ra sided with her, half-jokingly saying that Key was a scary person for bending the truth. 
Key also said that during their practice that day, Dana started using her lips more, which Dana denied.  She protested, “Key wanted me to,” and related a time Key asked her, “Why do you dislike kissing me so much?”

To support their personal claims in this amusing argument, the two even resorted to mimicking their kissing with their hands.  Watch the full clip above to see for yourself.

[NEWS] SHINee’s Minho Doesn’t Care about Key’s Diss on His Acting

Like the good friends they are, SHINee Minho didn’t think much about Key’s recent diss about his acting.

On September 24, Minho joined the cast of MBC’s Medical Top Team at its press conference held at the Severance Hospital in Shinchon.

There, a reporter asked Minho on what he thought about Key’s diss about his acting.

On September 18’s broadcast of MBC’s Radio Star, Key, who appeared as a guest, mentioned that Minho’s acting was mediocre.

On Key’s diss, Minho replied, “I don’t think much about it. We’re close friends, so I think it’s completely fine to say something like that in a joking manner.”

He added that when he acted in To the Beautiful You, he was still a rookie and had a lot of difficulties in acting as a cold character.

“My acting then was one out 10 points,” said Minho, adding that with Medical Top Team,he received a lot of help from the cast, which includes Kwon Sang Jung Ryeo Won, Ju Ji Hoon, and more. Minho hoped to leave a good impression by the end of the series.

Medical Top Team will begin broadcasting on October 9.

[TRANS] SHINee's Interview in CanCam Magazine, October 2013

SHINee has just released a new song "Boys Meet U". We "caught" them at the supermarket as they were shopping in preparation to meet "U".

In association with the title of the new song "Boys Meet U", let's talk about love ♡
EDITORIAL: It's the second Japan arena tour for SHINee. Is there any difference compared to the one last year?
KEY: Last year we paid attention to the stage presentation like wire actions and such, but this year it's more about a stage that focuses more on dance expressions by the five of us and exhibits a lot of our individualities. Compared to last year, this time we are already adapted to the system in Japan and Japanese staff!

EDITORIAL: How was it, performing the new song "Boys Meet U" at the concerts?
TAEMIN: It was hot!
JONGHYUN: Isn't that just your personal thought? (Laugh)
MINHO: Usually we would feel a bit sad when it comes towards the end of the concert, but this time as the title for the tour itself is "Boys Meet U", when we sang this song during the encore we came to feel like we would be able to see everyone again, so it was fun.

EDITORIAL: The cheerful new song "Boys Meet U" expresses the fluttering heart of a boy being in love. So what kind of girl would captivate you?
ONEW: The one with cute gestures! I wish for her to show it to me in secret.
JONGHYUN: A kind girl! It would be great if she is someone who understands about me.
MINHO: I prefer someone who is good in taking care of me.
JONGHYUN: Wouldn't that be someone who is like, a mother (laugh)?!
MINHO: Not a mother (laugh)! Someone who would notice and tell me on things that I overlook or I'm not aware of.

Taemin prefers little devils!? No, the story of Taemin as a bad boy emerges!!
TAEMIN: As for me, a little devil! Someone who would make you think, "Ah, what a bad girl" just by looking at her (laughing hard). No, I lied! If she is someone who isn't good at cleaning up, I would fix her until she can be good at it. And then, while we are at it, I would make her clean up my room as well~ ♪
OTHER 4: (Laughing hard)!!
JONGHYUN: Taemin...today's interview isn't about a bad boy!
KEY: I prefer someone who suits me! Someone that would make others comment that both of us really suit each other when she is with me. It could be because of her aura and such.

EDITORIAL: If you have a girlfriend, which do you prefer between talking on the telephone or e-mailing?
MINHO: If it's going to be long, I think I rather call her than sending mails to her.
JONGHYUN: If it's a girl that I like, I will go to meet her!
KEY: Let me think. Phone call is around 20 and mails is around 80, I guess?
JONGHYUN: Huh!? 20 hours a day?
KEY: No~! The percentage (laugh).
JONGHYUN: I wonder if people don't really talk that much on the telephone.
ONEW: When it's too troublesome to type the mails, I will call instead!
KEY: Troublesome, you say... (laugh)!

EDITORIAL: How are you going to plan your first date so that you can make her "fall for you and be your captive"?
(T/N: A reverse version from the lyrics of Boys Meet U)

MINHO: Go for a massage with her.
KEY: Huh?! Isn't it the best to do what people usually do, like watching a movie together?
ONEW: I guess I would watch a performance with her.
MINHO: What kind of performance will you watch? Something like, a musical?
TAEMIN: Gag Concert (※A popular Korean variety show) would be nice! It's funny!
JONGHYUN: Anyhow, Minho must be thinking of soccer, right?!

What do you mean, Taemin's cooking skill is dreaded by the members...!?
TAEMIN: If it's my first date, then I want to drink together.
KEY: Since it's the first date, I prefer casual places rather than somewhere that's too fancy.
JONGHYUN: And as for me, I want to cook for her!

EDITORIAL: Our photoshoot concept this time is shopping in the supermarket for ingredients to cook for your girlfriend. What would you cook for her?
ONEW: Dukbokki~ (Korean spicy rice cake)!!
JONGHYUN: Crab pasta!
TAEMIN: I would~ What do I do~ Sunny-side up egg?
JONGHYUN: That's too easy! I would want to make something that's more difficult! For example, spending 8 hours making a pizza, starting from kneading the dough. I would do that for her ❤. What about you, Key?
KEY: Chicken cream stew!
(T/N: Cream stew is a popular Japanized Western food in Japan)
ONEW: Oh! Thank you, that's my favorite ❤. Since I like it, cook it for me!
KEY: Okay, I will!

EDITORIAL: Who is the best cook among the members? On the other hand, who is bad enough to make you plead, "I'm begging you, please don't do anything"?
KEY: (Laughing hard)!!
ONEW: Jonghyun and Key are the good ones.
JONGHYUN: The bad one is Taemin! And I really beg you, please don't say anything (laugh).
ONEW: Please don't do anything (laugh).
TAEMIN: But why (laugh)?!
MINHO: Taemin's cooking... I don't even want to think about it... (sweat).
JONGHYUN: He doesn't consider anything about the taste at all and only bothers to add in everything that's good for your health. Adding something like honey and milk in ramen... He really adds anything!

Jonghyun's special dish is the lasagna he cooks in 3 minutes.
TAEMIN: But I can cook sunny-side up egg well! This is my only specialty!
ONEW: His sunny-side up egg is bad too, right...
JONGHYUN, KEY & MINHO: (Sharply agree)!
TAEMIN: Minho, didn't you eat my sunny-side up egg before~?!
MINHO: Ah! Somehow it tasted of fresh vegetables (laugh). It wasn't cooked on fire too.
TAEMIN: ... I'm specialized in eating!
JONGHYUN: My pasta and lasagna are loved by the members! I can cook the lasagna within 3 minutes.
ONEW: How do you do it?
JONGHYUN: I put ingredients and the sauce on the mandoo (Korean dumpling) skin. Next, I put another skin on top of that. Then, just repeat the process. Easy, isn't it?
TAEMIN: That lasagna is good!
ONEW: Then make one for me later~❤ Key is really good in making chicken stew!
KEY: I can make carbonara and ramen too~. And also, dakdoritang (spicy chicken stew).
TAEMIN: I'm good in cooking ramen too!
KEY: No! No! Stop it (laugh)!

EDITORIAL: Is there anything at the supermarket that you would somehow end up buying it?
ONEW: Milk! Milk!
MINHO: Ice cream♪
JONGHYUN: It's like a habit for me to buy razors (laugh). It happens without me realizing it.
KEY: I guess, it's snacks? Because I love them.
TAEMIN: Nothing. I don't go to supermarket often and be it milk, ice cream or razors, other members would buy my portion as well (laugh).
OTHER 4: (Laughing hard)!!
MINHO: The supermarket is an enjoyable place when you're there ♪.


ONEW

I want to walk around and eat nice food along the streets of Japan!

Q. Are you the one who would confess your love or wait to be confessed to?
A. I'll confess and wait. Half and half, I guess. Like chickens. (※ Apparently in Korea, you can choose half and half whether to apply the sauce or not)

Q. Tell us your charm in simple words!
A. Nice voice!

Q. What is the unspoken rule among SHINee?
A. Talk about everything with the members.


JONGHYUN

I aim to perform an independent concert on Japan's big stage.

Q. Are you the one who would confess your love or wait to be confessed to?
A. I must wait, right (laugh)? Why not just follow the flow of nature? (Taemin answered, "I will do it!") Well then, I'll do it too!

Q. What is the item that you must have when you're travelling for concerts at oversea?
A. Eye mask and ear plugs.

Q. Your favorite girl's hairstyle would be a long hair or short hair?
A. Short hair, I guess. As long as it suits her clothes, I don't mind!


KEY

I would confess to the girl I like. What does "waiting" means, anyway? (laugh)

Q. Would you want your girlfriend to wear short pants or one piece?
A. Short pants with long, blonde hair! Because I'm a flashy person.

Q. What is the unspoken rule among SHINee?
When the five of us are eating out together, no one would be selfish to force everyone to follow his will as we decide which place to go. Of course, sometimes we would feel like eating different things, but still, we are a group. Lately, I think our preferences are getting similar (laugh).


MINHO

I prefer one piece! The one in blue color is cute.

Q. Are you the one who would confess your love or wait to be confessed to?
A. (Answered immediately) I will be the one to confess!

Q. Would you want your girlfriend to wear short pants or one piece?
A. One piece! Blue would be nice.

Q. Tell us about SHINee's charms!
A. There are various charms. Looks, lips, aura. (Jonghyun: Aren't those from the lyrics of your part (laugh)?!)
(T/N: From Minho's rap in Japanese version of Dream Girl)


TAEMIN

I want to have an independent concert at the dome.

Q. Are you the one who would confess your love or wait to be confessed to?
A. Hmm~ I've never been in such situation, so I don't know! But, since I am a guy, I guess I should be the one to confess?

Q. What is the item that you must have when you're traveling for concerts held overseas?
A. (Minho who was next to him quickly said, "Taemin would even forget his own bag (laugh).") That's right... Members would bring things like socks for me (laugh).


Please tell us which part in the song to pay attention to and what to look for in the MV!

ONEW
"It's dazzling and refreshing. The charm lies in the happy and enjoyable feel it gives as you listen to it."

JONGHYUN
"It's a refreshing song that really fits the summer. The MV was filmed in Okinawa. I ate shaved ice for the first time! Syrups ❤."
(T/N: Japanese shaved ice is heavily flavored with syrups, unlike the Korean type.)

KEY
"The feel it gives and the lyrics are cute! We had barbecue and ate the famous taco rice, which were memorable for me."
(T/N: Taco rice - Okinawan cuisine, consists of taco-flavored ground beef served on a bed of rice)

MINHO
"(Singing) Let's dance together with SHINee~♪. It's a wonderful song that everyone can enjoy in the live stage."

TAEMIN
"Please observe the dance as well! I would be happy if fans dance to this song together with us in the live stage."

[NEWS] Key's rehearsal for upcoming musical 'Bonnie and Clyde'


gxHiSMB.jpg

On the 29th of September, harmonious and remarkable voices were carried throughout the Namsan Creative Center in Jung-gu, Seoul. The star-studded cast of ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ practiced in full motion in preparation for their upcoming live performance.

The rehearsals started exactly at 10 a.m and ended at around 10 p.m. The cast were divided into three teams and one of the protagonists of the much-awaited musical was none other than, SHINee’s Key!

Key had been recognized before for his talents on acting, from his debut as a musical actor last year on ‘Catch Me If You Can.’ He took on a challenging role in the form of Frank Abalagne Jr., a clever young man who bagged millions of dollars for being a con-artist. His new role is not too far from his previous one. Key will be acting as a criminal yet again, taking on the character of Clyde Chestnut Barrow— one of the most infamous outlaws of the 1930s. He will be performing alongside his female counterpart, Dana of CSJH 'The Grace' as Bonnie Elizabeth Parker.

◆ Go KEY - "To Practice Combat."
The actors went up front to rehearse an argument scene between the gang members. The cast seemed to be all fired up to perform as they showcased their flawless acting skills.

gKmC6cK.jpg

“For us, there is no tomorrow! We are Bonnie and Clyde, haha!”

The director seemed impressed with their performance as it was done in one take. Key seemed to outshine the other cast members though, with his attractive and trademark blonde hair.

ZAPkzOX.jpg

Before their rehearsal, the cast and staff members all gathered at the center to do a light exercise, mostly inhaling and exhaling before shouting “Bonnie and Clyde!” with glee. After their practice, they all gathered once again for a quick snap shot, donning dark blue shirts with “Bonnie and Clyde” printed on it. They looked like one big and sweet family.

◆ KEY - "My Business as A Man."

The world-renowned musical is not just famous for it's adaption of a true story, but is also popular for its many love scenes, which were vastly toned down for this version. However, fans can expect a new side of Key as a few kiss scenes here and there have been included. The scene took loads of practice but eventually being the professional actor that Key has always been, they made it look natural.

At a recent press conference, Key said, “This is the first time I'm doing kissing scene on a musical, but fans shouldn’t worry. This is just me taking care of business.”

Z7qz1X5.jpg

The next scene focused on Bonnie and Clyde. Key looked very comfortable acting with Dana. The smiles and physical contacts they’ve shared seemed to be genuine. They have definitely expressed the scene of two people falling in love with ease.

82Ge8O2.jpg

The first kiss, wherein Key seemed to be taken by surprise. The scene included Key and Dana singing together with palpable tension before ‘Bonnie’ abruptly pulled ‘Clyde’ in to kiss her.

◆ Hot-KEY

Once again, Key showcased his professional talents as he acted out his scenes with passion.

VMMmDwy.jpg

Key’s vivid facial expressions while he sings will definitely get the crowd going.

Rzh1Xex.jpg

One of the most difficult to scenes to do was the argument and the eventual slap. Key and Dana practiced until they got it perfectly without actually hurting the female protagonist in the process.

◆ Check the KEY - "Hard work in each scene."

In between breaks, Key always went up to ask his seniors and colleagues for opinions and general tips on how he could improve his performance for each scene. He constantly memorized his lines, song lyrics and choreographies for the next scenes to follow.

uN9qON9.jpg

Key continued to ask and discuss with his director if his performance was enough or if he should re-do it. he also voiced out mistakes if he saw it even if they were trivial. A true musical actor and a total perfectionist, Key never failed to show his passion for all the things he does.

KEY as the one and only Clyde Chestnut Barrow. “Bonnie and Clyde, Come see it?"

[TRANS] SHINee's Interview in H Magazine, September 2013

Korean boy band SHINee made their first appearance in H magazine! Even though their average age is 21.6 years old, they have been in this industry for 5 years. Their Korean debut was in 2008 and their Japanese debut in 2011. SHINee's distinct characteristic is their outstanding skills as artists. Skills that you cannot miss, like their perfectly synchronized singing and dancing and their performances that showcase each one of their vibrant personalities. These features have led them to be one of the top boy bands in their country. Their convincing features and boldness becomes the highlight of everything. You will feel that no one can match up to them once you watch their performance. They released their second album on June 26. Right after that, they showed their popularity by selling out all the tickets for a huge Saitama Super Arena 3-day tour. They have also released their new single "Boys Meet U" on August 21. While they were working their way through both Japan and Korea, we got the chance to talk to them.


It has been 5 years since you debuted in Korea, how have you changed as an artist? 
JH: There are so many things... but our debut in Japan and concerts. The part where we were able to stand on a huge stage was my favorite change of all times.
MH: In performances, it feels different singing our debut songs.
JH: It's not like we got better at it, but more like the time that we've been building up on it. It's like 5 years of experience that comes to life onstage.

It has been 2 years since your debut in Japan. Looking back, how was it?
KY: Personally, before my Korean debut, I had things I wanted to do. And a Japanese debut was one of them. In 2009, a year after our debut, we went to Japan for the first ever fanmeeting. I remember being so nervous. I've also seen our seniors, TVXQ's activities in Japan. So once I debuted, I was like, "This is it.".
TM: In these 2 years, I feel like we've gotten used to Japan's culture without realizing it. Like when we're communicating. Korea and Japan has different systems, so as I perform activities in Japan, I hope I get to learn more about it.
ON: Everything has to do with experience. The more songs we release, the more experience we get.
MH: I feel like we've became more natural. After two arena tours, I've become more comfortable with Japan activities. I feel like we've grown so much.

The arena tour this time came right after the release of a new album, so the fans weren't able to listen to the album much. Even so, the live performances went pretty well. 
JH: I was so surprised.
ON: The more times we do it, the more fun it gets.
KY: The songs people know will increase too.
JH: The differences between world tours and Japanese performances are 1) the language and 2) the behavior of our audiences. The Japanese fans seem like they watch over us carefully.
KY: They seem to know our intentions. They always match our atmosphere every time we change up the stage too.

Is there anything you want to challenge in the future? 
TM: Until now, we've been releasing songs for people around our age. But from now on, including our expressions and the genre of music, I want to try more mature music. I also want to choose more grown-up lyrics.
MH: We can also try the opposite, to step up from what we already have done.
KY: And when we do that, I would like to do the number one trending type of music. If we don't pay attention to it, it won't go right. Dance and fashion is also important. Putting all of this together, I would like to always show our best side.

They turn to face the girl and give shy nods.
Their interest in the girl deepen with the unexpected re-encounter but there is still another step to take before they can greet her...

Hello to everyone of SHINee WORLD J + PLUS.

Entering September~ The night breeze has become so cold.
Today I will share about the a-nation event that was held in Osaka and Tokyo the other day.

It was their first time participating in a-nation, yet a lot of fans came to the event.
Even though their appearance in Osaka was as a Secret Artist, there were lots of people with SHINee WORLD J towels hanging around their shoulders! The members were shocked as well as happy at such an unexpected reception.

The members were having a good time on the stage as they danced and smiled together with everyone at the venue. They said that they wish to keep on reaching out to share their music with a lot of people.

Please keep on listening to SHINee's music ♪

There's a blackboard with today's menu written on it at the catering room today, so I took a snap.
Huh? At the right side...
Everyone, did you notice it?

That's right! The chicken toy that would squeak when you squeeze its body was left there.
Members and staff kept squeaking it as they waited in their line!

Until the line is gone you can hear the squeaking sound (laugh).
Today's catering ❤

Today, we ate it up completely as well  ♪


 Boiled eggs

Jonghyun requested for boiled eggs, saying he wanted to eat them.

Since there are quite a lot, the dressing room is lively with the smell of boiled eggs (laugh).

According to Jonghyun, if salt is added while boiling the eggs, then the eggshell can be peeled of neatly.

But, these eggs... (sweat)

They're hot so it's difficult to peel, so they're left to cool!

I learned a new thing from Jonghyun! ^▭^


  
At such a place!

Another Hiroshima concert after a year has passed!
The atmosphere at the venue today was hot for today too.
When the members returned they went straight away for snacks!
Seems like they used all their energy on the stage ^▭^

We found this when we started to disassemble the props at the backstage!
It's something that is used in the production and it has this beautiful painting at the back.

Even the members were moved, saying what a wonderful board it is!

I always wondered if everyone seated in the 2nd floor, 3rd floor, 4th floor, 5th floor, 6th floor... (laugh) could see us properly!
Therefore, as I wanted to know how it is to be there, I went to the second floor around 10 minutes before everyone entered! ^^
Even though you can only see so little of us, you still give us a lot of support. I really thank you for that.
