[NEWS] SHINee’s Taemin to showoff a manly image on ‘K-STAR news’


On an upcoming episode of SBS E!TV‘s ‘K-STAR news‘ hosted by Son Ho YoungSHINee‘sTaemin will reveal a whole new transformed look.

Well known for appealing to the older generation of women with his cute and fresh image, Taemin will reveal a more grown-up, sexy and manly look on ‘K-STAR news’. SHINee’s average age was 17 when they first debuted and Taemin held the most innocent and cute look because he was the youngest out of the group. Taemin attracted the ‘noonas’ with his slim, and young figure along with his adorable antics so noonas should be interested with his image change on this upcoming program.

Additionally, the show will discuss the frenzy of girl group comebacks for the second half of 2011 andMBLAQ‘s Lee Joon will also be featured on the show.

SBS E!TV’s ‘K-STAR news‘ airs every Friday at 10PM.
