* FollowTheLeader: SHINee is known as a contemporary band who set trends when it comes to new genres, fashion and concepts.



* HeReallyCanAct: Minho has been the butt of many jokes within the fandom about how terrible his acting was in "To the Beautiful You" back in 2012. Well, flash forward three years and he straight-up astonished fans with his performance in the web drama "Because its the First Time" where he plays a character who is struggling with his feelings for his best friend. The scene where he breaks down in tears after realizing that he is in love with her, even after convincing himself that he isn't, is particularly impressive. Unfortunately, the general public still sees him as a sub par actor.
** Onew had only ever acted in sitcoms, so fans didn't really know what to expect when he was announced to play a doctor in melodrama "Descendants of the Sun." However, his acting after losing his patient in a war zone and his performance as a guilt ridden doctor in the subsequent episodes really made an impression on both the fandom and the public.

** Taemin's first full length album ''Press It'' - February 2016



** Jonghyun's compilation album (all of the song released in demo format on his radio show) ''The Collection: Story Op.1'' - September 2015
** Jonghyun's first full length album ''좋아(She Is)'' - May 2016



** Jonghyun as well, has a very velvet toned speaking and singing voice and often utilizes a falsetto tone whilst singing that drives people mad.



* BiTheWay: Jonghyun. Basically stated in as many words as he can without being ripped apart by the (hugely heteronormative) Korean media. Also frequently uses gender-neutral pronouns in his lyrics.



** Jonghyun absolutely loves Music/MichaelJackson so much that he used to impersonate Michael's singing voice on variety shows. Taemin too, in the dance sense, and you can see it firstly in ''Why So Serious?'' and again in his solo debut single ''Danger".

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Taemin, oh Taemin. When the group first debuted, many netizens targeted Taemin, calling him tone deaf because of his lack of lines in any of the group's early discography.

Since then, his singing has only gotten better to the point where he's now featured as prominently as Jonghyun and Onew. He even got his own solo album!

* StockholmSyndrome: In the music video for ''View'', the boys get kidnapped by four female fans. Instead of trying to escape, they use the opportunity to let loose and have fun, something their celebrity life has prohibited them from doing. They grow friendly with the girls and it is even implied that they develop feelings for them. However, a majority of the fandom believes that they had an agreement with the girls beforehand and weren't kidnapped at all.
