More about SHINee

SHINee, a cherished South Korean boy band formed by SM Entertainment in 2008, initially comprised five members: Onew, Key, Minho, Taemin, and Jonghyun, until Jonghyun's tragic passing in 2017. Renowned for their musical influence, particularly in South Korea, they have garnered numerous accolades and earned the title of Princes of K-pop.

SHINee made their debut in May 2008 with their first EP, Replay, and their single of the same name on SBS' Inkigayo. They quickly rose to fame, sparking a fashion trend among students, known as the SHINee Trend. Renowned for their exceptional live vocal performances, SHINee is regarded as one of the top vocal groups in K-pop. They are celebrated for their meticulously synchronized and intricate dance routines, earning them the Best Dance Performance Award at the Mnet Asian Music Awards three consecutive times for performances to Sherlock (Clue + Note), Dream Girl, and View. While their signature musical style is contemporary R&B, SHINee is recognized for their innovative sound, which incorporates elements of funk rock, hip hop, and EDM.
