SHINee is a South Korean boy band under SM Entertainment. The group debuted in 2008 with the release of their first EP, “Replay”, which hit number eight on the Korean music charts. Winning multiple awards in their first year alone, SHINee has become one of K-Pop’s most influential groups, setting trends in not just music, but fashion and dance as well, earning them the title, “Princes of K-Pop”. Originally a five-member group consisting of Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho, and Taemin, the group now promotes as four after the passing of Jonghyun in late 2017. Despite hardship, the group has rallied well, releasing both group and solo albums, making television appearances, holding a successful Japan tour in 2018, and winning the Popularity Award at the 2019 Seoul Music Awards.
