I'm late to the party but if you're still doing the Shinee asks game 3, 8, 19, 20
3. favorite era
holy cupcakes that’s a hard one. “everybody” had eyeliner, “lucifer” had onguns blazing, “ring ding dong” had “hello baby”…*sigh*
ultimately, just on dynamics, “dream girl” is probably my fave. jinki flipping a mic stand, everyone asking about the price of the mic stands, “one fine day”, ALL the ships sailing. everyone was so warm & soft with each other, the music was fun, all-kills, good promotions, floral suits (when will your fave!), & just a really fun time for everyone. no one got hurt!
8. first impression
”why are they wearing fur vests? why is that dude pointing to his back? a romulan! i want that guy’s red pants! holy frick this dance is awesome!!!” - me watching the “lucifer” mv.
one of the really cool things about not having a lot of exposure to other k-pop groups when i got into shinee is that they essentially set the bar for “normal/standard/basic”. when you’re introduced to that level of quality in music, performance, professionalism, group dynamics, & overall politeness it’s really hard to settle for “popular”. their staying power is just incredible & they’ve done it pretty much on their own merit. yes they have sm at their back but even in the very beginning they did much of their own promotions. also they’re just nice to each other. not always, we’ve seen them each be bullied in their own time, but in comparison to other group interviews they’re pretty damn protective of each other.
19. is there another group you like to see interacting with SHINee?
have you ever seen them with big bang? because it’s pretty awesome. jonghyun literally jumped onto seungri & they were…very “friendly”. other than that it’s kind of hard to say a “group”. but fx seems to have the most members that match well, & amber definitely seems to be one of taemin’s “safe” people.
20. any collaborations or solo activities you’d like to see?
jinki solo & ontae duet (even though taemin doesn’t think he’s good enough). the moment their voices blend in selene 2.6 is so nice.
& honestly i want to see how much taemin clings to jinki if it’s just the two of them promoting. more gripping onthighs or less gripping? grasping at him/hiding behind him more or less frequently? more discussions about jinki’s body or no? ttakbam encouragements? the sangtae, man. the sangtae. #magical
