ok, pls let me talk about this (warning: another minho rant).
ever since i became a shawol, ever since i joined the shinee fandom, there have been countless times where i encountered people calling minho “just a pretty face” or “the visual that can’t do anything else.”
i am here to say that minho is not just a visual. he is not just a pretty face. he is a human, like we are, that has feelings and amazing talents. this boy can rock singing, dancing and acting pretty amazingly. plus, he’s an athlete. c'mon, he works hard at that too, y'know.
i will admit, his voice was not the best when shinee first debuted in 2008, but have you listened to his voice now? have you listened to how much he has improved and have you seen the amount of effort he puts into these songs so he can sound nice? if you listen to him in “if you love her” and “beautiful life (한마디), he sounds like an angel. and that’s because he works hard at what he does.
and his dancing. why do people say he can’t dance? he’s been able to dance perfectly since shinee debuted. i mean, are you running out of things to say about minho so you have to comment on his dancing? stop. it’s nice. he’s fine.
about being a visual. there is nothing wrong with liking minho’s adorable face or his body, but if you only stan him for that and don’t recognize his talent, that’s not stanning him at all. that’s just idolizing his body and not seeing what real talent he has. i love minho’s visual side, but i love the fact that he sings, dances and acts too.
i’m not here to hate on anyone and say that stanning minho for just visuals is wrong, but if you think about it, it’s kind of weird. it’s weird to like a singer and not appreciate the actual singing.
so please don’t idolize minho for just his face and body. stan him because he’s got talent and he’s not afraid to bring it. stan him because he’s a sweetheart who cares about shawols and the members so much. stan him because he has improved so much from debut. he’s our min and he deserves proper love.
