* EarWorm:
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roughtzsCDI Ring Ding Dong]]" is particularly bad in regards to the chorus. Ring ding dong ring ding dong... Fantastic fantastic elastic elastic...
** I'M SO CURIOUS YEAAAH
** EVERYBODY, EVERYBODY, EVERY-EVERYBODY
** PPEOMPEOMPEOMPEOMPEOM, PPEOMPEOM, PPEOMPEOMPEOMPEOMPEOM~
** SINGING HAAAALLELUJAHHHH, YOU GOT ME SINGIN' HAAAALLELUUUUJAHH
** Neomu aremdaun daun daun daun view!
* FandomRivalry: [[http://www.journalfen.net/community/fandom_wank/1284996.html Had a kerfluffle]] with BBC!Series/{{Sherlock}} of all fandoms when the new album came out. All due to confusion over the usage of NamesTheSame tags on Tumblr. Yes.
* HilariousInHindsight: On an episode of ''Hello Baby'' Jonghyun admitted he had a crush on actress Shin Sekyung. They began dating some time later.
* HoYay:
** In spades with all the members, but Jonghyun and Key deserve special note, to the extent that Key usually refers to Jonghyun as "honey". There's a [[http://www.youtube.com/user/JongKeyTV YouTube channel]] dedicated entirely to video clips of them pumping up the gay together, like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=272x75jQTS0 sharing Pepero.]]
** Minho and Taemin definitely as well. They have a very brotherly relationship and are often seen hugging or messing around together.
** As of 2015, Jonghyun and Onew have replaced Jonghyun and Key. They're so obsessed with each other that they were seen hugging and messing around in the middle of a photo shoot for Vogue Japan. Jonghyun also went out of his way to say that he would date Onew if he was a girl out of all the members.
** Outside of just the other members, Key has plenty with best friend and (as of SM's merging with Woollim) labelmate, Woohyun. Even other idols comment on the way they act like a couple - once when Woohyun was accused of texting his girlfriend while brushing his teeth he replied, "it's not my girlfriend, it's Key!"
** Dispatch tried to catch Taemin on a date but instead he was hanging out with fellow labelmate and friend Kai of EXO, who collaborated with him on his solo mini album. This launched one of SM Entertaiment's biggest ships to date: [=TaeKai=].
* InternetBackdraft: A small but major one: In 2013, at SMTown Week, Onew and Minho donned {{Brownface}} with mustaches, poncho tunics, and sombreros (fake Rick James dreads for Minho) and danced to "Macarena". On one side, there were people who were shaking their head in shame and on the other side, there were angry fans screaming "OPPA DIDN'T MEAN IT".
* {{Narm}}: "The SHINee World (Doo-Bop)" attempts to be a BoastfulRap, judging by the Korean lyrics. Any attempts to take the song seriously, however, are lost by the line [[GratuitousEnglish "we got the flow it's break your naughty"]], and it all just goes downhill from there.
** Jonghyun's track "Beautiful Tonight" has a part where he is whistling and [[{{Corpsing}} you can hear him snickering so hard, that he can't continue whistling.]]
* TastesLikeDiabetes: Their "Hello" concept.
* ViewerGenderConfusion: Usually Taemin bears the brunt of this, possibly because he's the youngest, or maybe because he's [[http://hwanniefti11.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/tumblrl6m55oqy321qa4rk1.jpg very]], [[http://forevershiningshinee.files.wordpress.com/2010/08/t147.jpg very]] [[http://img44.imageshack.us/img44/7427/80495554.jpg pretty...]]
** There's also Key, who's really fond of girl group dances.
** Minho is definitely not exempt: a Japanese tabloid once mistook him for [[DongBangShinKi Changmin]]'s date.
* WTHCostumingDepartment:
** Key's and Minho's pants look a little...weird and out of place during their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mryHYMV7qjw&list=FLFLZVfb4YWWVHrBrEdtJ9VA&index=232&feature=plpp_video 2011 K-Pop Music Fest]] part in Australia.
** Taemin's pencil leggings in "Dream Girl"
** The entire 90s styling for their "View" promotions, with jeans tucked into socks, oversized belts and Onew's grandpa pants.
* YokoOhNo: It was confirmed in October 2010 that Jonghyun had been dating a popular actress, Shin Sekyung. This was the general reaction from both his fangirls towards her and ''her'' fanboys towards him. However, it seems like many fans may have actually accepted the relationship because [=SHINee=]'s fanclub numbers have been on the rise. Unfortunately the couple broke up due to busy schedules.
