SHINee Taemin Dance Compilation (by TheShayChan)
My tumblr is about sharing fascinating things I find around the web, sometimes though I am not able to update instantly.
So, I just had to post a video of my current obsession, it’s pathetic and irritating seeing myself fangirl-ing over an artist, in all my 24 years, BIG BANG was the only commercial artist who captured my heart (and my pocket!) completely, but after six years of being monopolized by the group (Justin Beiber who? One Direction to where? The wanted what? kkk) a golden blazer caught my gaze. Literally.
I remember the exact moment I was fascinated by the group, but first let me tell you that I was 19 when I first saw Shinee on my little sis’ laptop and Lee Taemin was just 15 years old the! I swear my senses automatically shut down and I swore then that I’d never like groups/bands whose members are younger than I am. Besides there’s Big Bang, SUJU, DBSK even Shinwa, Se7en, Rain who are all years older than me, no need for young-uns!
But fast-forward to fiver years and a month later and I have Shinee music, Shinee MV’s, Shinee fancams, Shinee Performances, Shinee INterviews, Shinee TV Shows playing everywhere.
It all started at the 2012 MAMA awards when I saw them performing SHerlock while waiting for BIG BANG’s awesome performance, Sherlock is a project I was never a fan of. The whole concept screamed commercial and was really really bland. Some people might like it, I don’t/didn’t. I’m not sure if I like the song since I really like the ‘artists’ singing the song.
It was then that I looked at these five grown men (I’m familiar with Minho since I watch Dream Team on TV) and noticed the one in the middle was wearing a shiny golden blazer, performing with them was a rookie group called ‘EXO’, I felt bad for Shinee since they’ve been in the industry for six years- they deserve a better time slot, so I watched and was about to turn the channel when the chorus of Sherlock played and golden-boy looked really angry and intense when he did his dance move. I asked my sister who it was and she told me that’s ‘Taemin!’, i thought, ah, the magnae.
That was the only Shinee moment I remember watching ‘til the end in the five years that I’ve been aware of them.
But it all changed when ‘Dream Girl’ played on Channel M and KBS Music Bank last March. I was bored when I turned the TV on and it was Shinee’s comeback, I was studying for an exam and Channel M and KBS kept playing Shinee Videos on their music segments.
But before that, BoA’s ‘Disturbace’ was released and MNET kept on playing it everyday and everybody saw that Taemin’s become Lee Taeman now! SMent’s promotion strategy I suppose and yes, noonas took the bait!
Dream Girl/Taemin inspired me to turn to Shinee whenever I feel bored. That’s when I saw what talented boys they are especially Lee Taemin. He is so underrated!
I like him! He’s such a powerful performer, he can even go solo like Rain-Bi or se7en.
The dominoes fell one by one, that’s when I got hooked on Onew! OnTae, Onew Sangtae kkk. He’s such a charismatic leader, unique and fun.
My only comment on Shinee is that they are a powerhouse of a group but like puzzle pieces, they haven’t yet found their perfect places to create the perfect picture. They haven’t reached their full potential. Compared to their sunbaes in SMent, Shinee’s a really well-rounded and world-class level group!
But unlike YG/Big Bang’s G-Dragon who knows his members well, their weaknesses and strengths, Shinee doesn’t have someone who can guide them and place them to their most advantageous position. SMent don’t do those things to their artists. They mold them like soldiers and then equip them with ready-made AMMO. They sing songs that sound like it’s made for robots, but Shinee, somehow make it spin.
Hire G-dragon/Teddy to produce your music SHINEE. Pride is nonsense when we’re talking about pure talent!
One more thing, you know those coordi-noonas fans are talking about, yea, they are perfect examples of people who work with Shinee. They just put on them whatever ‘looks’ nice without making sure if the costume would fall off on stage or hit the singer’s face while singing or hinder movements when power dancing. Weird.
I will end my post here. Gosh, ‘Why so serious?’ I’m trying to love it but I can’t grasp the concept, the theme, the lyrics sorry but I only watch it bec. I love watching Onew and Taemin perform with all their heart! Key and Minho too. Jonghyun, I miss!
Shinee has such a unique color, determination, confidence and personality (good/bad) don’t ruin them SMENT!
