SHINee Mobile Update: 20120630 (Staff Blog)

The local specialty that we’re introducing for Hiroshima is “Momiji Manjuu”!! [1] [2]

It’s a famous snack from world heritage (site) Miyajima. [3]

The standard filling is sweet bean paste but…

The one that Key is eating is chocolate-flavoured, Taemin’s is macha (green tea) flavoured

There are other flavours there too so, these two are worrying “when the live show is over, I wonder which to eat~? ” ^^

And the “shakushi” [4] that Taemin is holding is also one of the famed souvenirs!

In Korean this is called “chugoku” [5]

This is bigger than the ordinary spoon so Taemin seemed to be looking at it in amazement from start to end (laugh)

[1] Had to rephrase this, but this is a series they have where they introduce a local specialty from the area they’re performing in.

[2] Momiji manjuu is a filled bun/cake

Read more about it here:


[4] wooden spoon / rice scoop

[5] This is the Japanized spelling, actually Romanized version from Korean -> English may be different.

Shinee Mobile Update 20120604 + Me2day

[Onew updated me2day]

[온유] 키랑 한 컷~^^

[オニュ] Keyとワンカット~^^ (KRN->JP :yappy)

[Onew] One cut with Key ~^^ [0]


[Taemin on Japanese mobile site]

I took purikura [1]

Mine is (with) Key-hyung. [0]

Although I had wanted my own (cutout)…


[Staff update on Japanese mobile site]

In the dressing room earlier, the members were given exclusive use of the purikura booth!!

During the member’s use of the highly praised (booths)

Right away we discovered a member in the middle of using it!! (O^^O)

The individual cutouts of the members appear randomly [2], what sort of pose did everyone do?!

Anxiou~~~~~~~~s (>_<)


[0] Added Onew’s since it was related to Taemin’s update on the Japanese site. It says “cut” literally so I left it…

[1] Purikura refers to the sticker booths available throughout Japan, you can take and decorate your pictures, etc. I mentioned it before (too lazy to find post), but at the concerts they set up these booths so that you can pretend you’re taking pictures with SHINee members. Both Taemin and Onew posed with Key’s cutout. (lol I was torn between saying “cut” and cutout, but you get the idea, right?)

[2] This is why Taemin (and Onew) ended up with Key’s cutout

SHINee Mobile Update: 20120528 (Artist Blog) - Taemin

Buing Buing ❤

Is everyone also into my buing buing charm?!

It’s embarrassing O(≧∇≦)O


Almost put “aegyo” instead of “charm”. Are you caught by Taemin’s buing buing?

SHINee Mobile Update: 20120511 (Artist Blog) - Taemin

While checking the mobile fansite (^_^)

The (photo) of my sunglasses that I posted the other day… it’s cute just as I thought!!

(To) those who want it, I’ll lend you so please tell me?! (laugh)

Thank you for the 3 days at Osaka Jou Hall!

When I saw the venue packed to capacity, I was really glad, and happy.

(To) all of the fans, thank you always.

SHINee Magazine Excerpt: Biteki Aug 2011 - Taemin spotlight

Sorry anon, I sort flaked out for a little while. Here is the bit I think you requested.


"I’m too cheerful? But that’s my charm right?"

Throughout the interview Taemin gave the impression of someone who is always with a smile, when we asked him what he thought was his charm, instantly he replied, “I’m cheerful”.
The other members (responded) “You’re too cheerful!”, “no matter what he’s faced with, he’s cheerful”, but the teasing loving words from his hyungs [1] made the youngest give an embarrassed grin.

"Because we’re shooting late into the night, doing tough lessons, I never miss breakfast. My source of power is carbohydrates! So I make sure I have a good breakfast. Afterwards, I take supplements. I ensure that I don’t eat a lot of spicy food. For clear skin I put on face lotion properly. After washing (my face), face lotion is a must."

[1] older brothers. Somehow it’s just screwed up that even though I’m translating from a Japanese magazine to English yet using Korean seems more natural.

I’ve seen pretty airport stalker pictures of Key but I like these.

Random Taemin chat excerpts

Good day, Taemin is here/has appeared.

lol  Typing in Korean getting English lol

It’s me isn’t it?

Being told you’re cool is good. ^^

(Using a) MacBook is hard.

Windows is easy.

Typing is hard.

Isn’t today’s topic is supposed to be about the album?


That’s boring so

please say whatever (you want to).

At the time I was filming the MV

I was filming with a dog

but the dog

kept going woof woof.


[wan is sort of like woof, wanko is a cute way of saying dog, ko is child.]

I like dogs.

I like cats too.

A concept I want to do

Hmmm… Dir en grey

A choreographer that I respect is Shim Jaewon.


The style that I like is

Kaya Scodelario hahaha

Emma Watson

Please call my name just once.

And please just love just once. [I think he’s saying only tell him you love him once? I don’t understand since you can’t see what the 20 people are saying]

What’s a concept that I want to do?

Women’s clothing? hahahaha

Aside from me, what does everyone think about women’s clothing?

Is it that only 1000 are watching?

I just noticed ok


(I feel) under pressure.


It’s fun.

Totally fun.


Taemin Korean -> JPN: ganbusim_kiro

JPN -> ENG : me

Hopefully, I didn’t mess anything up, it’s a little confusing since you can only see Taemin’s side. Should I do Jonghyun’s? Or did someone else do it already?

Ceci Excerpt: Taemin

Q: SHINee in their 20s.
Taemin: It feels like I’ve become closer to my hyungs since reaching twenty.  The truth is that while the difference is about three years, there’s a gap between (being in your teens and in your twenties) isn’t there? It feels like we can communicate more easily now that everyone is in their twenties.

SHINee Mobile Update: 20120224 (Artist Blog)

Good day. It’s Taemin.

Everyone, it won’t be long until SHINee reaches you again! [1]

[1] Remember this is for a Japanese-only fansite. He’s talking to Japanese fans only So =/= Korean comeback.

As usual, translation by CrissAn

Original from Shimochan~

Five years ago, I received a Maltese puppy as a Christmas present!
It came to our home on (December) 24th so its name is Eve. By the way, the other was named Adam when it became a two-pet family.
Both are cute <3

Cosplaying as Minho cosplaying as girl, good job!

I posted some cosplayers who dressed up as Jjong and Key earlier. In a report there was mention of a Taemin one, but I searched and couldn’t find it :(

But I did find some older cosplays in the cosplay directory that I thought were adorable!

So I will spam a littleeee bit. Let’s start with Taemin.
