[News] SHINee Interview Elle Girl Korea June 2011.

About  a year ago, Elle Girl Japan asked for related materials and our  opinions in their preparation for an article on K-pop. One of the  questions was which boy group’s debut in Japan is most expected, and  Elle Girl Korea’s answer was SHINee.

The five slim boys’ slogan,  “(we are) a contemporary band,” was elusive in the beginning, but now  the public understands what it means intuitively. In their pursuit of  what is new and best in everything from music and performance to  fashion, SHINee was born to be global.

The joint interview both  magazines have planned on for months was made in a studio in Shinsa-dong  on an April afternoon. An Elle Girl Japan editor came over to Seoul to  meet with SHINee whose debut in Japan had been scheduled, and set the  place for the meeting with the five members with Elle Girl Korea.

There  was a bit of tension as people communicated in Japanese, English and  Korean in the studio, but when SHINee came in, the atmosphere became  livelier. The members looked in a good condition, maybe because they  were resting well during a break. They showed no hint of exhaustion or  nervousness while greeting the staff and talking about the photoshoot.

During  their interview with Elle Girl Japan, they showed off their Japanese  and introduced themselves excitedly as if they were back to their debut  days. In the following photoshoot, they left behind their usual attitude  as ‘chic fashionistas’ and acted free like backstage ‘rock boys.’ The  five members laughed, played with each other, and made expressions  unseen before. Whether it was because they liked the photoshoot together  for a magazine pictorial they didn’t have for a long time, or because  they were excited about their debut in Japan, they were full of restless  and positive energy.

After the photoshoot was finished, I asked  Yukiko, the Elle Girl Japan editor, how she felt about SHINee. “I  watched SHINee’s performances through Youtube and had an impression they  are very stylish. On today’s meeting, the different personalities of  the five members seemed to have synergy. They are cute, professional,  and awesome.”

SHInee will start their promotions as their  Japanese debut single Replay is released on 22 June. The Japanese  version of “Noona Is So Pretty” must melt Japanese noonas’s hearts. I  feel sorry about having fewer chances to see them in Korea, but look  forward to seeing their shining performances on new stages. I hope they  will enjoy it truly most of all, like they did today!
