Rather than dwelling upon things I can’t change, I’d rather develop the good things about me. So my dream isn’t to become the “best”, it’s to be someone who I’m not ashamed to be.

“Key hyung is good at dancing, rapping, and singing.” – Lee Taemin

"Right from when we were trainess until now, the one who sings really well, dances superbly, gets angry only when it’s an occasion to be angry about, makes people feel that ‘this guy is really amazing!’ that person is Key.” – Kim Jonghyun

Happy 22nd (internationally 21st) birthday to SHINee's 만능열쇠 (Almighty) Kim Kibum "Key”.

Dear Key,

You’re all grown up now. You’ve been through thick and think, and you still smile your brightest smile. You have been a guiding light in my life even though we walk completely different paths. 

All your hard work and dedication shines through everything you do. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Don’t let society blur your vision of yourself, because you are one of the few in which I admire. You are the one who stands out in the crowd and it’s not because of your fashion or your weight or the fact the you are an idol. It’s because of your heart and soul. Your personality and your talent. It’s because you are who you are. Someone I am proud of. Someone you should be proud of. 

I love you Kibum, that will never change. You changed my life too much for that to happen.

God bless and happy birthday. I hope all your wishes come true and then some.


i honestly would like to thank mr. and mrs. kim so much for blessing us with the perfection that is kim kibum.

kim kibum, i don’t know if you know this, but you truly are without fault. you’re almighty key (the triple-threat of shinee), a language master, fashion icon, the best “appa”, the missing member of every girl group, the “umma” of shinee, but most of all, you’re just kim kibum, the guy who’s not afraid to speak his mind and be himself. you truly are an inspiration.

happy 22nd (internationally 21st) birthday ♥
