You all must have read or watched the news about Donika Sterling, the American teenager who is suffering from an incurable disease and has been given a chance to meet her favorite K-pop stars in Korea. She came to Korea and met SHINee on June 20th! Taemin said, “It makes what we’re doing more significant to know that it can be so encouraging and of help to people.” Didn’t he give a smooch to Donika after giving his rosary bracelet and hugging her? How sweet!
Well, I had to post this photo. Did Quincy Jones, a legendary producer famous for producing Michael Jackson’s Thriller album, come to see SM Town Live in LA?
Why with Onew among all the other SM artists? Yes, a fan’s mind is flying here and there. All right, so he took a photo with a member from each SM group: with Yesung and with Sunny.

has had a musical schedule and joined them late. LOL at Onew’s face surprised to see a crowd of fans Still not used to such a sight? Onew doesn’t have make-up and is keeping his face down. But even without make-up, he looks good (and pure)! Taemin looks excited and cheerful…and tall! almost as tall as Minho! Well, maybe because of their shoes. Tae’s t-shirt inside… he needs a new one, but I like this loose neck t-shirt which tells Tae’s careless side. Jonghyun looks as cool as always (the yellow smile icon grabs eyes).

*Thanking fans by bowing more than 90 degrees (btw, taem, what are you doing? >,<)
This boy is ruining all my plan to spend less time on SHINee and more time on my work T.T Taemin, are you real? Do you exist? Here I see something beyond human terms of aesthetics. Pretty? No. Girl-like? How crude! Nope. I know the red lighting and the camera made the magic. Still love the captured ethereal moments through which we glimpse something that lifts us from the gutters of life…
You should check out the source blog for more photos.
Taemin hiding his nipps with fingers ;A; so precious~
Jonghyun’s 3rd teaser photo is not out yet. All the photos will be replaced by HD ones when they are uploaded on the homepage. Replaced!
OK, here’s my Sherlock detection: Minho is Sherlock. I thought he might be the suspect, but the bag of drugs next to him on the couch hints that he is Sherlock, who used addictive drugs. A younger version of Sherlock, maybe. He’s looking into the grape, a clue left in the criminal scene. Jonghyun is Watson with his bowl cut and short back hair as he was trained as a surgeon in the British Army. The letters Sherlock, placed at bottom in his first photo, shows that he forms a pair with Sherlock, an assistant to the detective. Minho’s Sherlock is pink color, and Jonghyun’s darker pink. The leg in white pants in the 2nd photo–which seems to be Minho’s as seen in the photo of SHINee’s hands–is another hint that they work together. Minho’s and Jonghyun’s 3rd photos are different from those of the other three members, the victims. Oh, a third hint is their shirts. Minho and Jonghyun both wear a shirt in check pattern but different colors: Minho in red and Jonghyun in blue. The check pattern shirt implies they are trying to put the puzzle pieces together through ratiocination.
*For your information, here’s the schedule for SHINee’s Lucifer album in 2010:

7/19 (Mon) digital songs released
7/20 (Tue) m/v
7/23 (Fri) music bank comeback
*All right, now we have our glorious Key’s teaser images out. Key looks peaceful in the first photo, but the wall in the background looks like a cellar or underground room. Is he locked in there? What is the device that is behind him in the 3rd photo? Is it a torturing device? His green hair color, is there a meaning? The blue smudge on his shoulder in the 2nd photo looks like a bruise, doesn’t it?
Here’s another theory: Minho is a suspect, and Taemin, Onew, and Key are victims. And Jonghyun may appear clothed in a Sherlock costume tomorrow Let’s see…
According to a fan’s theory: the third photos show what they were like before something bad happened. Taemin’s and Key’s pose in their second photos suggests they are victims. If Onew is also a victim, then why is he smiling in his second photo?
Hmm…my guess (WARNING: this can be creepy and disturbing. If you are pregnant or a minor, please stop here! ;P): Minho, a spoiled rich young man, is a serial killer. He kidnaps, tortures and kills boys. Key is his first victim. His third photo shows him as he is kidnapped and locked in. The green o in Sherlock in his first photo shows he’s been dead. That’s also the meaning of the bug on his mouth. Taemin is the next victim. He is about to eat the poisoned grape and staring back at the killer in his first photo. The second photo shows his fate. Onew is also kidnapped but still doesn’t know what’s happening and is smiling innocently in his second photo yet. His first photo, however, shows his life flickering away (the letters Shirlock blurred). What do you think?
*OK, I missed the moments!! Today we have Onew, our leader who’s been missing for a while! Last night, for the first time since I became a shawol, a SHINee member showed up in my dream, and it was Onew
Onew in beautiful and mysterious blue. Peaceful, cold, deep. With stars in his eyes. He is smiling so innocently with his body covered with a blanket but his pants flyer unzipped (!) seductively. Again the theme of merging innocence with obscenity. Why is Sherlock, the letters, blurred on the first photo? What meaning? Can it be because he’s hiding something under his innocent appearance? If all SHINee members are suspects according to a fan’s theory, what kind of suspect is Onew? Or all these teaser images show different sides of Sherlock?
Do you have your own theory? How are you following clues to put the puzzle pieces together? SHINee’s story to be told in their 4th mini album is getting more and more interesting and exciting.
*I can’t think now. I can’t breathe. Love the first photo. So beautiful. “Mysterious and dreamy” according to the press blurb. He is half naked but looks so pure. I’ll add more when I can find air…
It’s so Taemin in merging the seemingly opposite sides, “sacred and obscene”. This daring spirit makes me love SHINee so much. SM certainly knows what hardcore shawols want, ha. I don’t care what SHINee antis say. Whatever.
I’m definitely not ready for
the remaining members’ nakedness after this. Can I survive all? – Now, I’m curious what stories other members will tell.
There must be a meaning, a story behind these photos. I’m speechless at his unearthly beauty. Sobbing. I want to kneel down.
We need to be poets and artists to fully appreciate this!
