SHINee is back!
The SM Entertainment boy group is one of the most prominent seniors in the entertainment industry. They have been known for their high quality performances ever since their debut in 2008 with “Replay.”
Succeeding title tracks such as “Ring Ding Dong,” “Lucifer,” “Sherlock,” “View,” “The Feeling,” and more were successful in part because of their skilled vocals, synchronized dancing, and incredible stage presence.
Even 15 years since their debut, they are still impressing everyone with their talent! The dance version of their anniversary song “Hard” on YouTube channel Studio Choom is gaining them even greater attention.
Since member Onew is currently sitting out of promotions due to health issues, the others took over his parts. Thanks to their experience, Key, Taemin, and Minho were still able to deliver a complete stage that did not feel empty.
They were praised for covering his parts flawlessly.
Korean netizens agreed on community forums that their performance was one for the books. They asked, “How can they be so good?” and commented that they were “better dancers than [they] thought.”
Many also singled out Key for his mastery of the stage, saying, “Key is crazy…he definitely knows how to use his expressions” and “his expressions are amazing.”
Needless to say, international fans were impressed as well.
