SHINee to take you on a ‘SURPRISE VACATION’ through their travel note

20130515_shinee_surprise-vacation

Remember when SHINee took you along on their vacation through ‘SHINee’s Wonderful Day‘?

Well, they’re going to be taking you on the same trip again, but this time not through the camera lens but through their own travel note called ‘SHINee SURPRISE VACATION‘. SM Entertainment said, “The travel note has the many stories of the SHINee members as they traveled through Switzerland, Thailand, England, and Japan. The book contains beautiful scenery and the member’s daily activities, so it’ll interest not only the fans but also travel maniacs.”

This isn’t the first travel-related book from the group as Taemin, Onew, and Key have already published ‘The Sun’s Children‘ on their trip to Barcelona. So this second one should be something to look forward to! It will hit shelves on the 25th!

IU…

When it comes to talent and success in the K-pop industry, IU is a name that cannot be left out. Although IU has only been around for four years, she has already taken over the nation with her sweet, innocent charms and surprisingly savory vocals. With her milky complexion and slim figure, “nation’s little sister” IU has been gaining fans consistently, and the population of her “uncle fan club” has only been growing.

IU had a rather quiet debut in 2008 with “Lost Child” and experienced bursts of fame with “Boo” and “Marshmallow” in 2009. Since then, the public has slowly started to recognize her light yet powerful vocals and her ability to outsing most artists her age. IU captured the hearts of many fanboys with the adorable choreography and cute antics for “Marshmallow” in particular. Soon after, her acoustic covers of various hit songs such as Girls’ Generation‘s “Gee” and Big Bang‘s “Lies” have gone viral, drawing attention yet again to her flexible vocals and musical style.

The adorable singer’s popularity was on the rise when she released a duet with 2AM‘s Seulong, ”Nagging“, for the popular variety show, ‘We Got Married‘. It was soon after that IU reached one of the heights of her career with the release of her hit “Good Day” in 2010. From dramas to endorsements to variety shows, IU made frequent appearances in front of the public who was infatuated by her honest and childlike personality.

As she’s making just about everything she appears in a hit, it’s safe to say that IU is gifted with the “green thumb” of the K-pop industry. IU continues to secure her spot at the top with consistent yet not over-the-top appearances on TV shows and vocal skills, which will one day lead her to become one of South Korea’s legendary vocalists.

‘Etude’ reveals new poster featuring SHINee and 2NE1′s Dara

SHINee practicing choreography with Shim Jaewon for their comeback?

Fans have been awaiting for SM Entertainment’s male group, SHINee, to make their comeback after rumors began that the group would be releasing a new Korean album this year. It was also speculated by fans that SHINee would release a new song titled “Superhero” this year, a song by Norwegian producers that has been registered to SHINee for a 2012 release as a single.

An exact date has not been confirmed by SM Entertainment as to when SHINee would be making their official comeback. SHINee has been away from the Korean music industry since they last promoted the track “Hello” in October 2010 from their 2nd studio album, “Lucifer.”

On March 3rd, Blackbeat/Beatburger/SM Entertainment choreography Shim Jaewon uploaded a photo on his Facebook account with the text, “With shinee Again,” tagging himself at SM Entertainment. The photo revealed the feet of the SHINee members in the dance practice studio.

In July 2011, Shim Jaewon uploaded photos of cups with Super Junior’s names , indicating the choreography for the group’s comeback at the time to tease fans. He also uploaded, a photo of the legs of Super Junior at the time as well.

It seems that Shim Jaewon may be teasing fans yet again, this time with SHINee’s comeback. What do you think his photo of SHINee’s feet means?
