The website Auction has chosen SM Entertainment artists, SHINee as part of their main models on February 17th. The current models for Auction are f(x) and have been the face of Auction since March of last year.

f(x) will continue to be the face of Auction for another year alongside fellow SM peers, SHINee. The reason for Auction picked these two groups as their main models because not only are they one of the top idol groups, they are able to target younger people. Both groups will be able to target both genders as well between the age of 10 and 20 years old.

On the latest episode of KBS2TV’s “Happy Together 3,” TVXQ’s Changmin and Yunho revealed information about SHINee’s leader, Onew. They noted that Onew had grown a lot during the two years and three months that TVXQ had been on break. “Whenever he used to see us, he’d be too shy to say hi, but now, he fondly addresses us as ‘hyung!’ whenever we meet.”

Yunho also revealed that both TVXQ and Super Junior once made Onew cry. “Onew is very kind but it is quite rare to see him show his true self, so we installed a hidden camera with Super Junior once. The group of us pretended to fight and Onew stood by our side crying as he tried to calm us down.”

f(x)’s Sulli confessed that hidden cameras were a tradition, “We’ve also been pranked by SHINee before.”

Q. SHINee Jonghyun had an ankle surgery. Is he OK?

A. SHINee Jonghyun had his ankle ligament injured at a fan meeting in Indonesia last October.

He had to perform with a cast around his ankle on stage because of  this injury and couldn’t dance to some songs at SHINee 1st solo concert.

Even though he rested well enough, he complained of tiny but continuous pain in that part.

SM Entertainment made him go to a specialist for a thorough medical  examination, in which a tiny bone chip was found to be stuck in the  ligament.

So he was scheduled to have a surgery on Jan. 17.

A source in the management company says, “He is on recovery now after  a successful surgery. But he can’t participate in the SM Town Live in  Tokyo concert in the Yoyogi Stadium on Jan. 25-6.

Jjong, Please get well soon! >_<


SBS filmed in Pataya a New Year’s special program titled “King of Idols” to be aired at 6 p.m., 2 Feb.

The “King of Idols” is a program in which top idols select their King and Queen through diverse games.

The program will begin with the shoot of their stylistic airport fashion from the dandy English boy style to the hot trend of ”no pants”-looking style.

The program also includes their private life talk on the plane and at the hotel, their bare faces with no make-up, dance battle, and fierce gamess.

When Jinki was young, he was the type of person who went to CD game shops just so that he could play games for free. This kid always tried his best so that he could play the games. However, one day he decided to purchase the game CD as he felt embarrassed for always playing it for free at the shop (he’s really sucha nice kid). He bought the CD game even though he didn’t have the game player. (LOL)
During primary school, Jinki would always tear up when he wrote letters to his parents whenever he thought about how late his parents came home from work.
In middle school, like many other kids his age, he often wanted to go out to play (with friends) but instead, he would help his parents out at work.
In high school, he entered the academy (SM Academy) yet he would still do part-time jobs like delivering newspapers in order to not give his parents a burden. At that age, he also became a vice-class president for other schools. He had some friends whom he was close with and his grades were always in the top ranked. He even ranked #2 in his last year of High School

Jinki’s daily schedule in high school (already SM-trainee at that time)
Wake up at dawn to go swimming and walk to school. Listen well in class
After class (still in uniform), he goes to the training room. Majority of Jinki’s pre-debut pics were of him near SM Academy and of him in uniform. After training, he would go home and do 1000x rope-jumping…this is already very well known (many people know about this)

20 year old Jinki after debut (korean age)
Still the same. No matter if we look at his performances or Night Star, he would continuously greet people. Whenever they needed anything, he would not hesitate to stand up for them. To people who have judged Jinki before, he would still smile at them.
During this Night Star recording when they were blood-donating and amongst his musical rehearsals… was always worried about his health. He even greeted/thanked fans who did not donate blood at that time.
During the day he had to record a program and afterwards he had to record Night Star until midnight. Looking at him becoming skinnier and skinnier day by day, his pants becoming looser and looser…
When he felt hungry, he sat in the corner and ate choco-pie…

Etc etc

This is why ordinary Jinki is not an ordinary person…
