Article: SHINee, Jonghyun's composed 'Selene 6.23' takes #1 on the digital charts

Source: OSEN via Naver

1. [+894, -12] Journalist, he didn't compose the song, he penned it

2. [+666, -55] Gotta trust SHINee when it comes to music. They've never disappointed me with their voices. The fact that their title songs are stupid is SM's fault. Listen to the other songs in their albums, listen to them twice. They're worth it.

3. [+629, -41] Vocals are goose bump inducing

4. [+568, -33] I've been listening to them for a while and noticed how much Taemin has improved. Key's voice is on the unique side but he's a good singer and Minho is trying his best. SHINee's probably the male idol group with the most members who can sing. Their songs have a high quality to them now with great lyrics. I think SM is finally recognizing SHINee's true worth and giving them great songs to work with.

5. [+515, -32] Love SHINee's song ㅋㅋㅋ

  3. Yea...maybe SM will learn of CSJH's vocal worth again....just someday. They are the queens of singing in SM after all

  4. Yes, my boys. Selen 6.23 really made me cry cause it describe exactly how I feel. SHINee's my Selene that I can't touch

  5. Thank you, Netizenbuzz for translating \o/


    I was a bit worried about their digital rankings since there was virtually no promotion at all.. but with the exception of MelOn they hit #1 on music portals \m/

  6. Shame SM did not even hype the new songs. It's so much better than WSS?

    THIS. Dream Girl was just okay and Why So Serious... not good. Their other album songs ( just like EVERY SM album/artist/group) are way better. Except for Henry, Trap was fabulous. omg

  11. their voices match very well in ballads i love the two songs added~

  12. Jonghyun's lyrics for Selene 6.23 describe so much of how fans feel toward their idols, my timeline reported many shawols tearing after reading the translation

    Look at my eyes, I whisper alone as I look at you from far away
    Just smile for me once, I can endure it just by seeing your face
    If you are standing at the end of my life, if I can get closer to you
    I can throw away everything and run to you
    Though I extend my hand, though I extend it with all my strength, I can’t reach you
    It seemed like I got closer so I called you with a fluttering heart
    But there’s no answer, I guess I can never reach you
    Every day changes so quickly and you are warmly and brightly shining
    I’ve never seen that turned back (your back) – is curiosity also part of my greed?

    Since when did I start being with you? From the moment I opened my eyes and started to breathe
    I was with you every night (we were together) but I can’t approach you
    Though I extend my hand (hold my hand), though I extend it with all my strength, I can’t reach you

    It seemed like I got closer so I called you with a fluttering heart
    But there’s no answer (missing you), I guess I can never reach you
    Even if you tease me by saying this is foolish, I can’t turn this heart around
    I shout out loud (shout out loud and call you), I get angry but it’s no use
    I’m just one out of the many people that pass by you (pass by you)
    I’m not special to you

    Though I extend my hand, though I extend it with all my strength, (I can’t reach you baby) I can’t reach you
    It seemed like I got closer (so I shout outloud and call you) so I called you with a fluttering heart (I call out to you more)
    But there’s no answer, I guess I can never reach you

    I guess I can never reach you

  13. . We need more idol like SHINeee and BEAST tbh.

  14. finally a song from SHINee after so long that i like...the other releases were meh..

    ReplyDelete
  15. this is the perfect song for a drama!! the lyrics are beautiful!! why no promotions sm?!!!! is injustice

    ReplyDelete
  16. The songs are good, excpet Minho's rap in Better Off.
    Why do they have to put rap on it?
    Better Off amd Can't Live would be prefect songs without Minho's rap.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Congrats SHINee! You can still do well without any promotions! So proud of SHINee

    This.
    Imo, WSS was a turn off but then i give a try to the album and trust me there are so many hidden gems within the album... Same goes to f(x)'s RPPP-pink tape

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm so glad SHINee's starting to get more and more attention from SM. Finally, after 5 years!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Selene 6.23 was just indeed magically beautiful.
    Better Off also :)

    Onew and Taemin's short duet ♥
    Minho's singing lines ♥
    Key's cold voice. shivers ♥
    Jonghyun's penned words ♥

    ReplyDelete
  21. SM didn't even post anything about EXO hitting number 1 and the almost AK (minus monkey3)

    ReplyDelete
  22. why doesnt SM promote their good songs..WHYYYY

    Anyway, as a shawol i feel so happy that even without promotion, it topped the charts It's so gooood. I also like Better Off. Both are very nice to the ears :3



    Ugh i freaking love SHINee (Sorry i can't help it haha)

    ReplyDelete
  23. "SHINee's probably the male idol group with the most members who can sing"

    Gotta disagree. Minho is deadweight and only onew and jonghyun are good vocalists. That makes 2/5

    ReplyDelete
  24. Excuse me? I suggest you get to know someone before you judge them on anything. Also, I really wonder if you're an expert on vocals to be able to categorize like this.

    Hmm, right and yet Taemin was on Immortal Songs and Key did a duet with IU.


    If you're gonna troll, at least do a good job trolling because you can't troll on an idol group that is recognized in Korea for being vocally talented.

    ReplyDelete
  29. are they not promoting this album?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Composing is when you lay down the notes, penning is writing the lyrics to it :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. kpopwillneverstopAugust 9, 2013 at 1:34 AM

    Penning means he wrote the lyrics. Composing means he would've made the music.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How are they the male group with most members who can sing when only 2/5 of them are vocalists material

    ReplyDelete
  33. well literallyKey can't sing, he's casted in 2 musicals because of his look? And Taemin was praised in Immortal Songs because he's dance machine?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*August 9, 2013 at 1:38 AM

    sadly, no :( even no MV :(

    ReplyDelete
  35. I really want to see them sing it live <3

    ReplyDelete
  36. Af first I was like Better off is better than Selene 6.23 but then NO i changed my mind again saying the otherwise. Lol. Their ballads are really good T_T) Cant help it but feel so touched listening to all of them sing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm so happy, I've always keep on praying for SHINee to have more support and love, they are a really talented group

    everyone, please listen to their song and keep on supporting ^^ have a great day

    SHINee never fails me to give goosebumps. Their voice can brighten anyone's day. Their songs are good too. The popularity and fame they are receiving are all worth it. ♥

  41. this isn't their best performance of Sleepless Night imo cause Jjong's voice hadn't recovered fully yet here

    ReplyDelete
  42. That's their worst Sleepless Night performance ever.

  43. I can relate so much :'< hope for the success of the song

    gramps~

  44. selene 6.23 is a song about fangirl's life.

    Yes, and the same can be said about EVERY SM group! It would be nice if someone gave them a chance and listened to them as well, cause they are worth it :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. This new album of theirs combining ALL the songs from their last 2 albums (Misconceptions of Us) is gonna be solid gold.......there are so many hidden gems here like "Excuse Me Miss" and "Like a Fire"......
    These boys just keep getting better and better! (And the way they all get along SO well makes them even that much more loveable) <3

    ReplyDelete
  49. FYI, there were alot of articles..

    It's just that it was overshadowed by the fangirl issue.

  50. SHINee isn't SHINee without Minho's rapping.

  51. congratulations..love ya SHINee

    ReplyDelete
  52. 3. [+629, -41] Vocals are goose bump inducing YUP

    5. [+515, -32] Love SHINee's song ㅋㅋㅋ I FORVER WILL

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yes, he sang his self composed + written song at SHINee's 5th anniversary few months ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LmwMhY0riVQ

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think Key's a good singer, he had a short solo on Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook and he sounds amazing ^^

    ReplyDelete
  55. So can I say Selene 6.23 isn't a SHINee song since Minho did not rap on it? =.=

    ReplyDelete
  56. you would be right... if this were 2010 again, but shinees shown a vast, huge improvement since then. stop living in the past you fool with no ears

    ReplyDelete
  57. I really liked WSS but most people didn't :'( maybe I have bad taste (I actually liked f(x)'s RPP too more than Electric Shock)

    Yeah, SM is really weird... I heard EXO and f(x)'s latest albums and the other songs are so so good compared to the title song.

    ReplyDelete
  59. 3/5 of them are good singers imo. Key's voice .. is not my style but he can hold a note (I just don't consider him a "good" singer yet). Minho is the only one that's kind of weak.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*August 9, 2013 at 1:54 AM

    don't worry I like WSS too ~ XD
    And I also like RPP but not more then ES XD

    ReplyDelete
  61. omg me too ! high-5 !

    ReplyDelete
  62. Orgel and Sleepless Night are complete gems within the album imo <3

    ReplyDelete
  63. you can just say that Minho is a part of SHINee so without him there's a missing piece ( idc what other people say but SHINee will always be a 5 member group)

    ReplyDelete
  64. i like WSS too haha. i actually enjoy watching it more than dream girl. dont judge me! :3

    ReplyDelete
  65. Take into consideration that not all songs require a rap part, per se. Specifically, you were the one who indicated that Better Off is imperfect because of the rap, hence my reply. There you go.

    ReplyDelete
  66. 3. [+629, -41] Vocals are goose bump inducing
    ^SO many upvotes!! Selena is a really good song. Esp. Onew's voice is so beautiful and their adlibs. !!

  67. I like it. sounds kind of zion.t ish

    although I can see why this wouldn't be included on shinee's albums lol it'd be good solo material though

    ReplyDelete
  68. with no promotion but still top on chart....is really something tbh......congrate!

  70. Can you not use "literally" so loosely like this? It's grammatically wrong. When you use a new word, try to make an effort to learn how it can be used please.


    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I know that, thank you very much.
    That's why I'm asking why is it necessary to put rap in both Can't Live and Better Off.


    AND TO ALL PEOPLE THUMBING ME DOWN, I'm not bashing Minho's existence in SHINee. I'm criticizing the existence of the rap in the songs./I'm done here

    ReplyDelete
  72. me too, I watch the MV and listen to the audio to hear Jonghyun's voice :"> their Inkigayo goodbye stage (Jjong was in it!!) was magical but can't forget that engrish at the end XDD

    SM gave literally 0 promotion for these 2 tracks didn't they? I just don't understand SM sometimes, SHINee would have dominated if SM had just gave them a little promotion for these repackage songs.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I like RPPP but not WSS. lol RPPP is kind of addictive but not the same way ES is

    ReplyDelete
  76. Netizen Buzz =/= SM

    ReplyDelete
  77. Omfg,I just listened to it.Well done with the lyrics my dear bias :D

    ReplyDelete
  78. SM's official twitter gave the songs promotion: 1 tweet at the day it's released... LOL. The rest of the ~*promo*~: Onew's tweet + Jonghyun's tweets.

    ReplyDelete
  79. You were asking, and I was answering. Who on earth knew you were trying to be witty with a question you already knew the answer to?!

  85. hmm... the song isn't that special imo, its the same usual korean ballads songs

    ReplyDelete
  86. i don't understand why people are so pressed with your comments lol the rap parts are unneccessary indeed. they should have made him sing like in selena 6.23. His voice sounds just fine, why the need to rap??

    ReplyDelete
  87. Reminds me of Sherlock promotions.
    SHINee making their own teasers.

  91. wow his dancing really blows my mind, good vocals too.

    ReplyDelete
  92. "SHINee's probably the male idol group with the most members who can sing"
    Thats why they are my favourite group ^^

    ReplyDelete
  93. The lyrics for Selene 6.23 seems like fan's life tbh LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I like WSS more than Dream Girl...

    ReplyDelete
  95. I think Key is underrated for his singing.. which is sad.. :(

    I love the tone of his voice so much & not much people appreciate it...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9xeTiLgMTI

    ReplyDelete
  96. I thought that was their worst.. Jonghyun's voice was still a little unstable after the surgery.

    ReplyDelete
  97. ah~ Mapo Terminal is my favorite along with "Wrongful Meeting" and "I don't Know" *_*

    I really appreciate that he did IS2 in the middle of hectic Sherlock promotion period. Barely sleep for days around that 1 show with Patty Kim, practiced for only 3 days for Mapo Terminal etc.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Minho is really only seen that way because he has a much lower vocal range than the others, but all their songs are on such a high key. He sounds really good with the lower notes.

    ReplyDelete
  99. 001110101011101011August 9, 2013 at 2:38 AM

    I mean SHINee does have other schedules, they don't have to perform to promote their music, as much as I'd like to see these performances. SM could atleast spend a little money and give a little effort to advertise the songs on digital sites and such, or do a little bit more media play for SHINee or ANYTHING. SM is ridiculous sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  100. better off .... this song needs to hit no.1 too !!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Thank you NB for posting this. In all honesty, it's sites like these that are doing a better job at promoting SHINee than SM. It's such a shame too, with such good songs.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Yeah he actually sings good but because SHINee songs usually highlight higher notes, his parts in the lower range as support aren't really noticeable but he's good, for example: Sleepless Night *_*

    ReplyDelete
  103. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*August 9, 2013 at 2:41 AM

    both Minho and Key's voices are low~
    But I prefer Key's rapping than Mino's and Mino's singing than Key's XD

    ReplyDelete
  104. The sleepless night chorus, when Minho sings the low note harmony, that just kills me.

    ReplyDelete
  105. Little Freak 'ㅂ'*August 9, 2013 at 2:42 AM

    and EXO got more than 20 teasers at that time >"<

    ReplyDelete
  110. whilst beast everyone can sing not just most though...

    ReplyDelete
  111. Just like with Sleepless Nights tbh... could've been a whole lot better if they let him sing instead of rapping.

    ReplyDelete
  112. to be honest, SM's albums this year was like finding buried treasure ... i mean .... orgel .... sleepless night ... heart attack .... black pearl .... shadow ... good bye summer ...

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love Selene 6.23 to bits. Their voices mash-up so well together and make the song sound so heavenly. I hope SM promote this song well. It's about time SHINee garner new fans. It will be a shame that their talent and and music aren't getting enough recognition just because of some potholes in marketing issues.

    ReplyDelete
  114. looooooooooooooooove this song :3

    ReplyDelete
  115. im really proud of SHINee...and im really just done with SM slacking off with their promotions..

    ReplyDelete
  116. AGREE but not only that... they dance well at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  117. 4. [+568, -33] I've been listening to them for a while and noticed how much Taemin has improved. Key's voice is on the unique side but he's a good singer and Minho is trying his best. SHINee's probably the male idol group with the most members who can sing. Their songs have a high quality to them now with great lyrics. I think SM is finally recognizing SHINee's true worth and giving them great songs to work with.



    I want to comment on this but people will bitch at me for bringing in other groups. Oh well, I'm pretty sure there's a group that starts with a D (sometimes a T) where all of the members (5/5) can sing. And another group that starts with a B where all the members, (6/6) including the rapper can sing. Plus there are a couple of nugu idol groups where all of the members can sing but no one pays attention to them.

    ReplyDelete
  118. haha


    "we're nude"


    yeah, i wish *u*

    Great songs and like most people here, I wish SM would promote this more aside from twitter lol XD. Then again they currently have 2 artists promoting at the same time and I don't think they ever had more than 2 but I could be wrong

    ReplyDelete
  121. TVXQ yes, only they're not quite 5 anymore are they? B2ST? HAHAHAHAH... NO.

    ReplyDelete
  122. and it's finally a ballad. seriously how many fans have waited for a ballad as SHINee's title track? sometimes I really wanna slap SM

    ReplyDelete
  123. yess.. I really like 80ish and groovy tunes on "Like A Fire" and moreover Jonghyun+Onew explosion on that song. haha

    ReplyDelete
  124. You're the one that bitching here since you cant let us shawols be happy at once. Cant you not. =___=

    ReplyDelete
  125. the part where Taemin and Onew sing simultaneously is really gewd..

    ReplyDelete
  126. ImArnoldSchwarzeneggerAugust 9, 2013 at 3:40 AM

    True

    ReplyDelete
  127. i love both DG and WSS, SHINee's songs always difficult to listen the 1st time but catchy later

    ReplyDelete
  128. i think that song choice is key's worst enemy. his voice can be so beautiful, but the genre he loves doesn't suit it. the boy was meant for lower tones/ballads/etc rather than what he usually chooses (gaga).

    ReplyDelete
  129. Did anyone listen to Evil from 'The Misconeptions of me' ? I really wished they'd made that the title track.. it had such a ring ding dong feel to it

    ReplyDelete
  130. Orgel and Aside:D great

    ReplyDelete
  131. Do You honestly want them to do more album promotions? They've pretty much released 3 full albums this year. They have also released a few singles as well. Why are ya'll so greedy. I want Shinee to get some rest, not promote more.

    ReplyDelete
  132. henry TRAP was awsome, it was really good but didnt get that much attention. For title tracks, SM always go with uniqueness.

    ReplyDelete
  133. taemin was in immortal song, key does musicals. This is not 2008.

    ReplyDelete
  134. I'm not feeling the song tho but that's more because i'm not a fan of ballad somber ost-like songs. i do love shinee though and if SM promoted them better I really think they could've hit the top by now. Or at least give them better title songs, their last couple of songs have sounded rushed, they're not bad but it's not on par with their older stuff. But of course the other songs in their albums have always been consistent and lovely. Fighting SHINee

  136. SHINee's music is really great
    I've never disappointed with their release
    great song, great vocal, great choreography
    they are complete package
    and their 3rd album is the best out of all their release
    all song on chapter 1, chapter 2, and new tracks on the repackage are great
    they improved a lot

    They were literally just like out of the blue "here u go guyz..." I was checking MelOn real-time chart and saw a shinee song & was like...they released it already? really?

    ReplyDelete
  138. plus they just released their japanese album too and japan concerts too..

    ReplyDelete
  139. no of-course i want them to rest! they've given us soo much this year and im really happy..but its just that SM always seem to slack of their promotions :/ after MoM everything was so rushed and not many people even know that they've released a repack......

    or maybe ur rite:( i think i probably HAVE become spoiled :(..health does come first and they have been looking utterly exhausted it really saddens me..well regardless, im a proud shawol :D

  140. I do want the boys to rest. The only thing makes me wish for a promotion is that the songs are too good to be wasted like this.....
    I wish SM give it more exposer even without the boys performin it on music shows. Like recommend it on charts and so.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Omg Yes!!! Those are some of the tracks which i bought from itunes :)

    ReplyDelete
  142. With zero promotion it hit #1....
    Perfection <3

    ReplyDelete
  143. and they are doing perfectly fine in the fields they chose, musical, dance, they even had a comeback album.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Don't forget they also have an upcoming Japanese Single release on 8/21 as well.
    Boys Meet U single which has: BMU title track, Dream Girl (Jpn ver.) & Sunny Day Hero.
    You can already hear them all from fan cams of their JAT tours this year and short MV for BMU has been released last week.


    They've got so much promotions left.

  145. they are not 5 anymore but all of jyj and tvxq now can sing

    ReplyDelete
  146. :(( Key made the cover, JH wrote the lyrics and pr the songs on his Twitter also Onew, Taemin has a photo on SM Town FB, and Minho random card.. :((
    They are amazing, no promotion, no MV, no teaser, all by themselves! So proud of these boys :(( but no grumbles anyone
    the songs are amazing can't wait to hear live :( love u SHINee :((

  147. These guys don't disappoint with their music. Even if the title tracks aren't your cup of tea (I always love them but that's just my opinion), their albums are always full of amazing songs. That's why I became a fan in the first place.


    I also think they have a great chemistry. Vocal wise, their voices are different enough so that they have individual charms, but when they unify, they create a sound that's kind of irreplaceable. And it's rare to find a group with such good vocals that also has such sharp/on point choreography too.



    Always proud of them <3

  148. i love all :)) i also love Evil as much as you :D

    ReplyDelete
  149. i wish they were but i still understand why they aren't. their schedules are INSANE and i don't think they have the time (or energy) to promote this album on music shows etc

    ReplyDelete
  150. Omg that's so true !!! Why SM always gives the wrong song to promote? :/
    Okay maybe their tittle songs are songs who are easier to listen even if you're not a shawol but ... Arf >_<

    ReplyDelete
  151. i liked the rap in Can't Live though. ^^ and in 1000 years. two slow songs where i actually felt the rap added something to the song. but yeah... the rap in Better Off was kinda random. which is sad cause i love that song! more than Selene actually. ><

    Yes! My babies <3 <3 <3

    2. [+666, -55] Gotta trust SHINee when it comes to music. They've never disappointed me with their voices. The fact that their title songs are stupid is SM's fault. Listen to the other songs in their albums, listen to them twice. They're worth it.

    THIS IS SO TRUE! Since, I love RnB too. SHINee is just my style. FIGHTING!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Probably lots of shawols wont agree with me but i'm glad SM didn't make an MV for this. It allowed focus to be purely on their vocals instead of their visuals and choreography and clothes and dancing. To be recognized just for their vocals~ Proud of them!

    ReplyDelete
  154. He is actually a pretty good singer and has always been an excellent performer. That said his song choice is sometimes bad, like he tried to cover Mika but he didn't have the range to do so. Or when he covered Katy Perry, which actually turned out better than I expected but some still didn't think his sort of "monotone" style worked.

    yes he always composes his own songs, SM just doesn't release them :/ but he performed one of his own composed song "Time's Late" here it is ^_^ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAMYHg9TdME

    You must be drunk because none of their titles is stupid

  157. Even though I would want to see them in MV but somehow im ok with it. Lol. But got to agree, both of the songs are rly good.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I want to buy the album....

    ReplyDelete
  159. Love SHINee, hating on SM! First they work these boys to the ground and now they wouldn't even promote their album!
    But if there is one thing good that came out of this is the fact that you can never really put a good group or a good song down! SHINee is the best and the Selene song is I think one of their best songs! I especially love the fact that all members here are given the chance to sing especially my ultimate bias Minho! I was so proud I nearly cried....I really want to see them do this song LIVE but I guess SM won't even allow that! because apparently they only have one artist recently! Nothing against EXO simply because SHINee members seem to love them so for that alone I honestly do not have anything against them but it seems like all of SM's resources now are geared towards promoting them, they didn't even give enough time for f(x) to promote their album because they release another album of exo!
    ANyways, I really love both songs and I really would want to see them perform it live! I bet I'll have more Goosebumps when THAT happens!
    By the way, congratulations SHawols too! great job!

  162. Shinee's music is always great to listen too! The last album was great! Orgel should've been released! That songs is so Hot!

    ReplyDelete
  163. I'm addicted to that song

    ReplyDelete
  164. I think the best part of WSS is the choreo. I love watching them perform it because you can tell they're really enjoying it ^^

    ReplyDelete
  165. I KNEW they would do really well with a ballad, just like Beast somehow always does well with their ballads. Korea loves their ballads and if SM would stop insisting on promoting all their SMP tracks then they could gain something from this

    ReplyDelete
  166. Well, to be fair, they've only performed it like three times lol. Definitely their weakest performance though

    ReplyDelete
  167. I'll never understand SM. it would be so much better to prove even more people that SHINee are great singers and not just dancers with a ballad like this. the would become even more popular, get mor eoffers, more cf deals etc. like seriously it would be just positive for the group AND SM.

    ReplyDelete
  168. I don't think it would take much lol, it's a ballad so they can literally just stand there and sing. But I guess SM doesn't have enough staff (make up, coordis, etc) to accommodate this many artists at once. And three artists from the same company promoting at the same time on the same weekly music show is almost unheard of.

    I know they're busy but I wish they could just do a couple of performances. Just one or two :3

    ReplyDelete
  169. Minho's voice fits Selene so well tho T3T

    ReplyDelete
  170. Lol I hated WSS at the beginning, now I don't love it but it's OK, and I enjoy seeing the live performance since they seem to be having fun xd. Aaand completely agree with liking RPP more than ES. ES was.. kinda catchy? but that E-e-e-e-e-electric shock! part was too cheesy for me to handle xd

    ReplyDelete
  171. THIS. Minho should just give up rapping and leave it to Key. He should keep on singing instead because he sounds great and I think he could be even better. Key's voice is not my favorite but it harmonizes soo well with the other members... Oh SHINee I wouldn't be a silly fangirl if it wasn't for you, thank you...

  172. er ring ding dong existed, you know.

    ReplyDelete
  173. he didn't pen it, he wrote the lyrics!!

    ReplyDelete
  174. you should be liking it since SM didn't ruined their image by not doing ridiculous things.

    ReplyDelete
  175. it hurts when people said that SHINee is only good looking, well this song is a prove that SHINee is not just an ordinary idol, I think SHINee is the best vocal dance group. SM, please, notice it.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Got Selene 6.23 on repeat, its so freaking perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  177. That's what penning it means....

  178. I fell in love with jonghyun after listening to his korean version of ¨Y si fuera ella¨, I'm glad he and SHINee as a whole is gaining more and more positive responses and more recognition (:

  180. Key can sing. His voice just isn't as pleasing as Onew or Jjong's and now Taemin's. And there's nothing he can really do about that.

    ReplyDelete
  181. I love how some didn't get the point of this statement. lol

  182. I love the hidden gems on shinee albums and I'm glad these ballads are getting attention

  184. they created the song right?

  185. "with the exception of MelOn"
    I don't understan why SHINee selene 623 was not #1 on Melon, even EXO Growl make a number 1 in that chart.



    Is melon even relevant???
