SHINee has been chosen as one of Cosmopolitan France’s “Top 10 Sexiest Men of the Internet.”
SHINee has once again been mentioned in the French media, with Cosmopolitan France referring to them in the May issue of their magazine! SHINee’s large amount of online popularity granted them this title, with an approximated 74.2 million pages dedicated to the boys scattered throughout the web.
SHINee’s online presence is nothing to be laughed at — in the first section of the article, “Why they’re the buzz”, the writer speaks of the existence of 74,200,000 SHINee-related internet pages, SHINee’s powerful french blog (SHINee France perhaps?), and their mega-popular Facebook account. The article goes on to say that in France, an obvious love is shown for SHINee which means “those who receive light,” referring to Korean pop as a new genre of trendy music that has something for everyone.
Although the article has a slight discrepancy in saying that the boys are between 14 and 18 years of age, the frequent doses of humor keep us smiling, as they correlate SHINee’s youth to the youth of a younger sibling. Cosmopolitan mentions that the similarity would be greater “if only our younger brothers were ten times more handsome, better dressed, and more respectful.”
In the following section, “Why we love them,” Cosmopolitan highlights SHINee’s beauty and fashion sense. They refer to Onew as one who gives people a feeling of wanting to treat him like a doll, say that Jonghyun gives off a feeling of someone who one could talk for hours with, and again go back to a doll reference in “[we’d like to] …undress and redress Minho and Taemin, then put them all to sleep lined up in a pink bed like Polly Pocket.” The article comments that rather than sexy, the boys fall under a more simple and wholesome category, using the word “ippeuda” (the Korean word for beautiful) to describe them instead.

On Mnet‘s ‘Beatles Code 2′, the SHINee members had a discussion about an advertisement for a beauty product (Etude House‘s new line of lipsticks) with the popular 2NE1 member. Onew explained that during the filming, he was feeling unwell and could not film the planned kiss scene. Fellow SHINee member Keyeven poked fun at Onew by joking, “Onew didn’t even get to see Sandara Park.”
The advertisement in question was filmed with a concept called “Kiss Note”. In the scene, Dara writes the names of the SHINee members in a ‘kiss note’, and each member magically appears and gives her a kiss.
This episode of the ‘Beatles Code’ also featured the SHINee members creating their own ‘kiss notes’. As they were writing the notes, the boys displayed their shy and bashful nature by sheepishly covering their notes with their left hands.
Don’t forget to catch the episode when it airs on April 5th at 9:00PM KST!

On April 4th, Key shared the photo above via SHINee’s official me2day page and wrote, “‘Catch Me If You Can’! We just concluded our second performance today. Thank you everyone for coming! Try to catch me~.”
Key’s smile in the photo exuded confidence, and fans took note of how handsome he looked in a pilot uniform.
“You could’ve just become a pilot,” they wrote. “You look so good in it,” along with, “Fighting! To a guy who continues to challenge himself!”
In related news, Key is acting in his first musical ‘Catch Me If You Can’, playing the role of expert con-artist named Frank.
Popular idol group SHINee revealed how they distribute their income.
On the April 5th episode of Mnet ‘Beatles Code 2‘, the boys of SHINee were asked how much they made. The boys answered, “We make an amount that’s hard to earn for anyone our age.”
MC Shindong who is under the same label as a member of Super Junior thoughtfully tried to change the subject by saying, “I can somewhat guess how much, but there was an occasion where I talked about income during a broadcast, and I was later called in.”
“I’m curious to know if all of you distribute your income evenly, or if you make as much as how much you work individually,” he said.
SHINee’s Key answered, “We have a system where each of us make as much as we promote individually.”
“When Onew hyung was doing his musical, he made a fixed amount of money per show so he made the most, and when Minho was doing ‘Dream Team‘, he made the most,” he continued.
When asked if there was ever a time he made the most out of the members, Key answered, “They don’t give me those opportunities. I started a musical recently. It’s called ‘Catch Me If You Can‘, and I play the role of an expert con-artist. I get paid per performance.”
MC Shindong then hilariously advised the boys to forget everything else and focus only on musicals, causing everyone on set to laugh.
