During an interview with the Taiwanese media on the 6th, SHINee's Jonghyun was unable to evade one topic that reporters continously asked about. Ever since confirmation that Jonghyun and actress Shin Sekyung were dating broke out, SM Entertainment has been strictly filtering and blocking the media’s questions on the matter.
While Taiwan is no exception to this ”verbal ban”, the media has been continuously asking and publishing speculations about Jonghyun’s relationship. Reports that SHINee’s newest single from their repackaged album, “Hello” is a reflection of Jonghyun's feelings for Sekyung have also begun to surface.
When asked about their love confession song, “Hello,” Jonghyun looked uncomfortable but gave a small smile indicating that he could not answer. Taemin answered the question cautiously, “Although it’s a song of confession, we always perform with our fans in mind on stage.” Key also added, “After singing so many strong and powerful songs, it’s feels pretty good to sing something that is more gentle.”
Taemin, Jonghyun and Key were the only ones present for the press conference as Onew and Minho flew back to Korea for their MBC “Music Core” MC duties. The 3 boys reassured fans that both Minho and Onew will be back in time for the fan party and also revealed that they will also be singing a special Mandarin song for fans. When asked about their Mandarin, Key confidently stated that foreign language lessons were given during trainee days and that they were all comfortable with speaking simple phrases. Jonghyun smiled and and counter-argued with him jokingly, asking “Are you sure?”, making Key blush red with embarrassment.
After the interview, Taemin, Jonghyun and Key went to visit the tallest building in the world, Taipei 101. The boys were very excited, exclaiming, “The elevator is really cool, and it’s super fast; but why is the viewing gallery at the 89th floor, isn’t it supposed to be on the 101th floor?”
Due to rain the day before, SHINee was unable to see the Taipei night view as they had hoped and were disappointed. They went to Chun Shui Tang to drink Taiwan’s famous tapioca pearl milk tea and jokingly revealed to the press, “Because the fans and production staff all know that we like to eat Xiao Long Baos and drink Pearl Milk Tea, so for these few days visiting, we have been drinking at least 2 cups of Pearl Milk Tea a day and our stomachs are all filled with Xiao Long Baos.”
Are you looking forward to hearing more news about SHINee? Where do you wish they would visit next?
