{NEWS} Korean group SHINee's first mainland interview, Aggressive talent battle

On January 2, 2010, popular Korean group SHINee were guests for an interview with Jinying Entertainment. This is SHINee's first time on a mainland entertainment show. At the interview, the host tested the five members in English, dance, and magic tricks. SHINee accepted the challenge, winning the dance battle. However, they were defeated in the English and magic trick challenges, and the members modestly called the host, "Teacher".

Test of Talent

The five members of SHINee consist of: leader Onew, main vocal Jonghyun, rapper Key, subvocal Minho and lead dancer Taemin. Of the five members, Taemin is the youngest at 19 years old (yeah they got their info wrong -__-). Since SHINee is a guest at Jinying, naturally they must participate in a test of talent. The atmosphere was extremely competitive!

First Challenge: English. SHINee's leader Onew is skilled in English, and conversed with the host in English. The two were about the same level, Onew confidently said, "It doesn't matter if you have an accent in English, you should only be able to memorize the textbook." The host studied English broadcasting at China's media university, and fluently memorized a portion of an English textbook. Onew gave a thumbs up, forfeiting the challenge.

Second Challenge: Dance Battle. SHINee members Key and Taemin are both skilled in dancing. The two of them confidently stood at the center of the stage, performing sexy dances. Taemin even invited the host to dance together, at the end the host admitted defeat.

Third Challenge: Magic tricks Challenge. Magic tricks do not have national boundaries. At the interview, the host performed two magic tricks for SHINee. One trick turned a piece of paper into money, another trick separated two straws that were tied together. SHINee didn't find the slightest flaw, and the five members asked the host to teach them magic tricks. After they learned it, the five of them modestly called the host, "Teacher".

Test of Unity

SHINee is under Korean company SM Entertainment. Since debut, the five artists have always shared the same room. The unity between a group's members is often compared by others. In the interview, the host asked several questions to test the five members' unity.

Q: Do you shower together?
SHINee: We never shower together.

Q: If you are a girl, who would you date in SHINee?
Onew: Minho.
Taemin: Me.
Key: Me.
Jonghyun: Minho.
Minho: The other four.

Q: If the world ended, and you could bring one man with you, which member of SHINee would you take?
SHINee: Why do we have to bring a guy? We can't bring a girl?
