Editorial manager’s Note: This meeting has been interpreted from Korean and altered for quickness and lucidity.
In the event that you needed to acquaint Rolling Stone perusers with Shinee with only five tunes, which melodies would they be and why? I for one truly adored Sherlock.
Key: Ah obviously, “Sherlock.”
Taemin: That’s a top choice among us as well.
Key: “Replay,” “View,” “Sherlock,” “Don’t Call Me.”
Onew: The last one should be either “Ring Ding Dong” or “Lucifer.” Right?
Key: I think “Ring Ding Dong” is more popular. We’ll go with those.
Shinee has been a solid part in the K-pop world for more than ten years. How have you kept up your gathering dynamic consistently?

I think we’ve been blessed to meet great individuals and through all that we’ve experienced, we’ve come to acknowledge that we are so critical to one another. I believe we’re close a result of all that has occurred and all that we’ve encountered together.
Thinking about the previous 13 years, what might you say has been your greatest profession feature or valued memory?

What do you believe is the greatest distinction or change you’ve encountered with regards to the current music scene?
Minho: I think the web truly began to turn into a thing around when we appeared and that is the thing that permitted global fans to begin tuning in to our music and watch our exhibitions. That is most likely the greatest change that has occurred and I think nowadays, with online media, there’s quite a lot more correspondence that is going on past just our music deliveries and recordings.
Key: It’s truly cool that we can have non eye to eye exhibitions, and clearly the current climate has an influence in this, yet recalling when we appeared, we couldn’t ever have envisioned an online show.
There are such countless new gatherings and Shinee is one of only a handful few gatherings that stay from what individuals call the second era of K-pop. What’s the main thing you’ve learned in your professions that you would need your youngsters to acknowledge?
Key: To be straightforward, there were a ton of times when it seemed like we were scarcely enduring.
Taemin: (chuckles) So traverse it?
Key: Rather than simply overcoming difficulties, I genuinely think it takes around 10 years for somebody to have the option to grow their point of view. The best way to settle on a savvy decision that somebody with long stretches of involvement can make is to have long periods of involvement.
Taemin: So hold it in for a very long time? (chuckles) all joking aside, I believe it’s truly critical to converse with one another and battle and sort out the thing is causing issues from the get-go. Conveying a ton is significant.
Are there any lesser gatherings that you’ve been watching out for? What might be said about them has grabbed your eye?
Taemin: They’re from our name, however I’m interested to perceive how Aespa’s idea works out. Speaking with fans through music can be something passionate, so I’m keen on perceiving how this functions with the Aespa AI virtual characters.
Key: Although they aren’t really another lesser gathering, I’m anticipating EXO and what they make after all the individuals complete their military assistance.

Taemin: When I am with Shinee, there’s a warm inclination as though I am back home. I can’t actually place it in words. It’s fascinating in light of the fact that I generally think I am agreeable when performing solo or with SuperM as well, however when I watch myself around Shinee, I can tell that I look the most quiet.
We simply know each other so well and I missed them and needed to advance with them so severely while they were no more. I’m so glad we’re ready to cooperate again and there’s an inclination of needing to have great substance and results.
Onew, Key, and Minho, how can it feel to be back with your individuals and your principle jobs after military help?
Onew: There’s very a feeling of soundness and I believe we’re genuinely ready to sparkle when I am with our individuals contrasted with when I’m distant from everyone else. I’ve understood how valuable they are.
Key: I had a ton of time to think and I understood there were numerous things I needed to attempt. As a gathering, I feel that I would now be able to attempt these things.

What did you miss most about being important for SHINee?
Minho: Even doing advancements and press and spending time with one another, rehearsing movement and making little changes to a great extent, battling (chuckles). Simply joking, that just applies to Key. I think these are seemingly insignificant details that I truly missed.
The innovative interaction for “Don’t Call Me” more likely than not been very unique in relation to your past collections, thinking of it as’ been a couple of years since you’ve delivered a full collection and thinking about the worldwide pandemic. What has been the greatest test?
Key: Not having the option to do a major show or anything with our fans straightforwardly without a doubt. We’ve considered how we can associate with our fans in the most ideal manner conceivable with live transmissions and with online media. There’s likewise a great deal of theatrical presentations on TV as well as on the web. I don’t think it was essentially troublesome or excessively testing, yet it’s simply so unique in relation to what we are utilized to.
Is there anything you can share from the creation interaction of “Don’t Call Me”?
Onew: For me, when we were first learning the movement for “Don’t Call Me,” I was for all intents and purposes stopping since I was unable to keep up. It was an extreme test for me.
Key: On top of it being some time since we’re advanced, “Don’t Call Me” has a truly solid exhibition perspective so it was certainly hard when we were shooting the video also.
Taemin: For the advancement of “Don’t Call Me,” we made a telephone number that fans can call and hear our voice messages. I believed that was truly fun and a groundbreaking thought.
“Try not to Call Me” explores different avenues regarding a wide range of types while keeping up that signature Shinee sound. What is every part’s number one track and why?
Key: “Code.” I believe it’s stylish and makes you need to move. I like the bass line too.
Onew: “I Really Want You.” I think it has the Shinee vibe.
Taemin: “Kiss.” It has direct verses that are communicated wonderfully. The guitar riff is rehashed all through in the chorale and I truly like that.
Minho: “Body Rhythm.”
Taemin: He has a truly decent body. (snickers)
Minho: It’s a classification that we’ve never done and I think the track came out truly well.
From the secrets, it would appear that the music video has a retro idea with subjects of extraterrestrial life. Would you be able to walk us through what this message is?
Key: We’ve generally shot our collection covers with a film camera or worn vintage garments, yet the idea for this collection was to take truly perfect and fresh shots in a misshaped reality. You’ll see that the foundation climate and the garments are generally so spotless and ordinary, yet the things that are going on are peculiar, similar to when there’s a major mishap however everybody looks fine. We needed to rejuvenate this phony reality since it has an unforeseen bend.
As opposed to saying the extraterrestrial components have an importance behind them, it’s more about appearing to be typical when there are abnormal things occurring.
Taemin: To add on, our gathering name Shin
