The new SHINee album wasn’t quite as good overall as the legendary Everybody EP, but I’m beyond obsessed with both “View” and “Odd Eye.” I gave the latter its own post, so I was trembling with excitement when I saw that SHINee finally performed the song as part of their goodbye stage.

I don’t even know what to say about it because everything was just so perfect.

Girl, when Taemin swivelled his hips… I lost control.

I seriously can’t get over their visuals and stage swag, especially Taemin and Jonghyun. (I’m ignoring the fact that Key looked like Beavis & Butthead’s anorexic one-eyed Asian triplet.)

It’s strange that such a great song from such a talented, marketable, good looking group is, for the most part, restricted to Asia. SHINee’s clearly the best boy band in the world right now and their white American equivalent would probably become the cool, critically-acclaimed version of One Direction (the All Saints to 1D’s Spice Girls), but because of language barriers and their race they’ll never be a global act. The only consolation is knowing that you to get enjoy something so good while all the losers that don’t listen to K-pop have to make do with Meghan Trainor and 1989 era Taylor Swift.

Also, here’s the official fancams of the male version of f(x)’s Sulli, Krystal, Victorial visual trinity, Taemin, Jonghyun, Minho.

    Your unfounded Key hate is forgiven for the use of that Showgirls GIF!!!

    I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect stage! Honestly, it makes me wish they had promoted it alongside “View” instead of “Love Sick” (would’ve been down for “Trigger” as well).

    SHINee will have to remain a hidden gem for now, but Glob knows they deserve to be global superstars.

  • Key was great hear! I loved fierce sassy pirate. Also, I don’t know if it’s my hormones raging, but Minho’s flow has vastly improved.

    I always appreciated Shinee, & was aware that they are perfect, but this era turned me into a full fledged stan. I even bought the odd album (and i want to buy them all now :o).

    It seemed odd to me that they didn’t promote that heavily, but maybe with the repackage they will be everywhere/global world tour/shinee world ala spice world/minho loses all his sleeves foreverrrrrrr.

      I blame you for my new man crush on Minho and his biceps.

      • lolllll He’s gonna bro out on Dream Team with Hani this summer. Get pumped for the Rap God!

    • im convinced that musically, shinee can do no wrong.
      even their songs that i can’t really get behind at the time of release are just me being a pleb, i always come around to them eventually

      • I am digging through their discography, and besides hello, I haven’t found a song I dislike. What’s phenomenal about them, is that they are the whole package. F(x) are super pretty, and have the best songs, but they are missing that it factor/star power that shinee has. It’s magic.

    Key chanelling his inner Elle Driver with that eye patch!

    I’m right there with you with the View and Odd Eye obsession. I am officially onboard the Shinee train after this album. Let’s hope I don’t get off at the next station.
