What makes SHINee special?

SHINee has a lot of things going for them but there a couple of things that really make them different. First off, they experiment with their sound and they do it well. From Lucifer to Juliette, Why so Serious and Married to the Music, they seems to always comeback with something different and they pull it off well.

Next thing is stage presence. These kids were born to perform. With amazing live vocals and stunning choreography, they always stand out. Everything from your makeup to your expressions effect how powerful you are own stage. SHINee seems to control it without even trying. They truly shine like the brightest stars, even when the nights are darkest. They have such unique voices that you would never hear in American Music and that just helps them stand out more.

SHINee is a hardworking and passionate group that has seen their struggles be rewarded with great success. Still, they stay humble and loving and Shawols appreciate that love.
