Korea boasts a number of idol groups, especially young, pretty, talented boy bands, and SHINee is starting to steal the spotlight with their cute image, catchy music and chic fashion style.
The Korea Times met the group last week at their agency SM Entertainment, while middle and high school students waited in front of the building in the hope of getting a glimpse of the young stars.
The group_ Jong-hyun, Min-ho, Tae-min, O-new and Key_ entered the room with a “annyeonghaseyo!” (loud and clear.) The young singers looked tired from their hectic schedule, with blank expressions and sleepy eyes.
However, their eyes lit up when asked how they became singers, answering that their love for music gradually led them to the entertainment business.
“After watching K-pop singers like H.O.T. on television, I started to mimic their dance moves. I loved it, and it turned out that I was actually good and so I went for an audition,” Tae-min added.
