SHINee (pronounced "shiny") is a South Korean
five-member Boy Band
that debuted in 2008. The members are:
- Onew, the nice-guy leader.
- Jonghyun, lead vocalist, a mild version of a bad boy.
- Key, the arrogant diva.
- Minho, the cool and laid back one.
- Taemin, the cute youngest member and lead dancer.
They started very young with a colourful R&B image, and have accrued a whole slew of fans. While Jonghyun's and Onew's voices are the most celebrated, every member (as of "Dream Girl") can now sing and dance competently, which separates them from most other boy groups. As of 30 September 2014, with the announcement of Jessica's termination from SNSD
, SHINee is now SM Entertainment's longest running group with all original members still together.
