Shinee:  (샤이니)  stylized as SHINee, and pronounced “Shiny”) is a contemporary R&B  South Korean boy band. Formed by SM Entertainment in 2008, they made their debut on May 25, 2008 on SBS’s Popular Songs with their promotional single, “Noonan Neomu Yeppeo (Replay)” (“누난 너무 예뻐 (Replay)”, literally meaning.. “Older Girl, You’re So Pretty (Replay)”). The group consists of Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin. Since their debut, SHINee has won numerous awards for their talented vocals are dance routines. They have also starred in their own reality show based on their song, “Noona Neomu Yeppeo (Replay)” where a certain Noona (Older Woman) spends the day with them, goes on a seperate date with each of them and then chooses the member she likes best and in the end, the two then go on a third date alone together, which puts an end to each episode. SHINee is also considered to be a fashion icon, having started the “Shinee Trend”, everything they seem to wear appears to be very creative.  Their personal designer’s name is Ha Sang Baek (하상백) so when it comes to the fashion department, SM has assigned him to do the dirty work. 

On May 23, the group’s first mini-album, Replay was released. Replay debuted at #10 on the Korean music charts and peaked at #8, selling 17,957 copies in the first half of 2008. On June 7, 2008, SHINee participated in the Dream Concert in the Seoul Olympic Stadium along with other high profile Korean stars such as Epik High, Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, DBSK and the Wonder Girls.
