Bora ranked Soyu as no 1 when it comes to beauty, announcing "Soyou has the maximum pastime in attractiveness some of the 4 members normally, and she looks after herself the most. Because she has a huge number of interest and takes care of herself, i suspect she knows more."
Ranking Shinee Members
During the press conference, the members were asked to describe one another’s special characteristics. About Onew, the members explained, “[Onew] is very versatile. He’s quite unique. There are a lot of times when he is calm on the outside, but it would be great if he could appear on a program where he can show his natural side. Onew has the funniest character in the world that is unique to him. We think that if his charms could be expressed fully, a lot more people would love him.”
Member Minho continued, “The triplets of the child-rearing program [‘Superman Returns’] are very popular these days. Among the triplets, [Onew] looks a lot like Min Gook. So we always call him ‘Min Gook-Onew.’ Onew hyung was born first so Min Gook should actually look like Onew hyung, but it’s the opposite. [Onew] is looking more and more like Min Gook.”
Minho also added, “I hope Onew hyung can show his charms more and more like Min Gook through our upcoming promotions,” causing Onew to laugh.

Out of all the members, Jun Jin had his life bared to the media the most. Not only does he have a famous father and an interesting real name (Park Choong Jae– which is supposed to be a weird name for a Korean…or was it old fashioned? One of the two), he revealed that his biological mother had left him and his siblings at his young age and that he had two stepmothers in his life. His name appeared in rumor mills as he dated other celebrities, and there was that time when he was taken advantage of by some woman who released photos of him passed out.
To me, Jun Jin was more like a drama character than anyone else. He is handsome and successful, funny and charismatic, yet has this sad childhood lingering in his adult life. I imagine girls looking at him and thinking, “I can change him. I can be the soulmate that heals him.” The good thing is that Jun Jin has been pretty clean the past years, except that weird dating scandal with one of the members from Spica (Everyone was like, “Why?”).
Eric was actually my least favorite member for many years. I knew he was handsome, everyone told me he was handsome, but there was just something about his face that rubbed me the the wrong way, and the fact that he was probably the most popular member in Korea made it worse for me. Was it the facial hair? His weird English raps that sort of made sense, but didn’t really?
SHINee's Jonghyun Shows Deep Gratitude Towards SHINee members, SNSD's Sooyoung, Zion.T, Iron, For His Passionate Showcase
He posted a picture of Taemin and Minho, writing, "SHINee~~!! ^^ Thank you so much for coming, and thanks to Jinki hyung (Onew) and Kibum (Key) who weren"t able to make it due to schedules but cheered me on. Because of you guys, I was able to conduct the showcase with strength, I"ll work even harder!!"
Since Sooyoung hosted the event, Jonghyun didn"t forget to thank her as he wrote, "Thank you to Sooyoung noona as well!ㅜㅜ For being with me for my showcase even though you"re busyㅜㅜ Thank you so so much
On the August 20 installment of KBS radio program, "Lee So Ra"s Music Plaza," Taemin talked about hypothetically having an older sister.
He was asked, "If you had an older sister, is there a member in SHINee you would like to introduce to her?" Taemin replied, "No. If I had an older sister, I don"t think I would introduce her to the SHINee members."
He said, "The SHINee members support me a lot. They even furtively give me presents. The members contact me at dawn, take care of me, and watch over my broadcasts. All of the members come to support me, but Jonghyun in particular takes care of me a lot. I knew Jonghyun the longest. He"s really caring."
Taemin added, "He"s happier for me than I"m happier for myself. Key gave me a present. The funny thing is it"s almost Key"s birthday, so I do think that"s why he did that for me."
Kim Chang Ryul said, "Which member made harsh comments?" Taemin responded, "None. They do joke about it, but they just joke. I think a good opportunity came to me first."
The photo show Onew, Jonghyun, Taemin and Minho were standing together and posing towards the camera at the backstage of "Inkigayo". In particular the presence of Onew in the photo since he hasn"t been seen much with the group recently has stired the excitement among the fans even more.
On August 17, member Jonghyun humorously proved to be a huge fan of Taemin, as he posted on his personal Twitter account: “Taemin-fans (tremble tremble tremble). The president of the fan club is even standing on the right side of Taemin-god (tremble tremble tremble). So lucky (tremble tremble tremble).”
Along with this amusing and hilarious expression of his love for Taemin—referring to himself as the fan club president—Jonghyun revealed a picture of four of the SHINee members surrounding the solo artist.
In the uploaded photo, Onew, Jonghyun, Taemin, and Minho can be seen posing together for a friendly snapshot. They are drawing attention for their handsome looks, as well as their close friendship.
