Kim So Hee mentioned, “Recently a special person talked about SHINee.”  Hearing this, Minho answered, “Former US President Obama talked about SHINee”.

During a speech at ‘The 8th Asian Leadership Conference’ held in Seoul back in July, former US President Obama had briefly mentioned the popular idol group, saying how young teens in America were learning Korean so that can keep up with SHINee.  He also added that SHINee enjoyed eating burgers, which caused SHINee fans to be proud.

Minho explained, “We didn’t really believe the news until we finally saw the clip,” describing how the members were surprised. The interviewer Kim So Hee said, “To know that you guys even like hamburgers.” Minho replied, ” I know. Whenever we visit America, there is one particular hamburger place (In-N-Out) in the LA area that we go to, we just have to go there and eat their burgers.  And I would like to say on behalf of SHINee, we are so thankful that he also happened to know that fact as well.”
