How apropos (and kind of crazy) that the name of the album is "Odd"? I pretty much couldn't not blog about this, ya know? It's a sign! A sign from the SHINee gods!!
Ok relax Erika... breathe...
Ok I'm calm.
Let's start with that 1st teaser, featuring Onew:
The second teaser, featuring Taemin:
And now the obligatory squee-ing over their just released teaser images:
Beautiful pics of our beautiful boys.
Ok so, if you know me and this blog, you know I don't pull any punches in regards to SHINee or any other kpop group (or any subject to be honest). All I'm going to say about this one is that this better not be some sort of Beach Boys theme or a Calypso theme. I want something epic and incredible that will catapult them to the charts for months and enable them to win tons of prizes at the end of the year music shows. I want that so bad for SHINee that it almost hurts, and all of us Shawols should feel the same way.
It's been over a year and I'm still of the opinion that SM Entertainment cheated them out of winning tons of awards last year with the release of Everybody, and yes I'm still mad about that. So now it's 2015 and SMent has been pushing EXO and Red Velvet like they're the best thing since sliced bread but I think it's time that they give EXO some time to regroup and to get over their myriad dramas. Don't get your panties in a twist, EXO-Ls: I loved "Call Me Baby" as much as the next person, but I think it's time to let SHINee :cough: shine. It's past time, in fact.
I'm of the opinion that SHINee is in their prime. They are seasoned performers, they are seamless, and even when they're not seamless they know how to cover for it well. They're ready for big things and SMent needs to let them have a shot at those big things by giving them a great song. Just one thing: please retire Tony Testa as their choreographer. K? Thanks!
|Onew is that you?|
|Taemin's shirtless again, tsk.|
|I made this one just for you Taemin pervs. You're welcome. ;)|
Key's Instagram post today:
Yesssss! :fist pump:
As you might know, SHINee filmed their upcoming mv in Thailand around the 19th and 20th of April, which Thai Shawols were super excited about. I'll link you to a cute fan account but the main point you can take away from their stay in Thailand is that they ate A LOT:
Fans said that SHINee ate a lot xD. They enjoyed eating pretty much everything and when they saw fans waving snacks at them from a far, they told one staff that they wanted to eat the those too lol. The staff though came to talk to fans and fans decided to buy snacks and food for SHINee using their money. Other food support was also sent to SHINee.cr. sinistar @ tumblr
Oh, and apparently Key carries a mirror around to look into periodically. Ohhh Key, whatever would we do without you??

More teaser pics from SHINee's official site:
SHINee will be releasing their title song, "View" at their concerts in Seoul from May 15-17th. The lyrics were written by Jonghyun (of course!) and produced by LDN Noise, a team of producers from England. It's going to be deep house, y'all. What??! My favorite genre. I can't wait to hear it.
Alright Shawols, stay tuned for more SHINee comeback goodness in the next few days. I'm glad to be back (back..back...back...) and I'll see you soon!
