SHINee spending Christmas in Taiwan


The article is a long one so I’ll leave it under the cut. It mainly just talks about SHINee (as if we don’t already know that stuff lol) but the important thing is, they’ll be in Taiwan from 24-26 of December. There will be a handshaking event (*seething with jealousy*) with more info under the cut!

If you live in Taiwan and you’re a fan, make sure you get there and tell them that someone called candychu is waiting for one of them to marry her. Please and thank you :D.

(Also, related but unrelated to this article, I heard SHINee’s Desk Calendar scans are up on Soompi? I saw a few pictures on LJ but I really have no way of saving them all and re-uploading (because saving would slow down the computer and then freeze everything – unless they were linked to PB cause then I could just ‘copy’ pictures straight to my account). So if anyone does have links to the pictures on PB then um feel free to share and I can re-upload them onto my own PB account. Hope that makes sense :). Or else, *puppy eyes @ beckery or PAS*…)

SHINee ‘s Overseas Trip To Taiwan from 24/12 – 26/12

SHINee who has debuted for only half a year but has already received the Best Newcomer Award at the MKMF, did not fail to disappoint recently as they picked up the YEPP Best Newcomer Award at the Korean Golden Disk Award, they have also been confirmed to be going coming to Taiwan on 24/12 (Wednesday) to promote their first album [AMIGO], hence becoming the third SM Entertainment group to go to Taiwan this year after their sunbaes, Super Junior and Dong Bang Shin Ki.

SHINee who is basking under the glory of winning at two major music awards, managed to squeeze out a rare 3 days trip after much negotiations despite their increasingly hectic schedule, dedicating their Christmas which is a festival important to all Koreans to Taiwan, besides this is also the ‘first Christmas’ for SHINee ever since their debut. With regards to this the members all express excitedly, “Wahahahaha! We can finally go to Taiwan. Everytime we can only listen to Super Junior sunbaenim talk about how great Taiwan is and now we are also going to Taiwan too!”

SHINee whose 5 members have an average age of 17, comprises of leader Onew(18 years old) and members, Jonghyun(18 years old), Key(17years old), Minho(17 years old) and Taemin (15 years old) who are all high school student. Even though SHINee is young, each member are really multi-talented, and are indeed elites of the elites. For example, before debut, Minho was chosen as a main model at Korea’s leading Deisgner Ha Saeng Baek’s fashion show for his tall build and pretty looks, Taemin was a rookie who wowed all Korean dance instructors with his amazing dancing skills at the age of 14 and Jonghyun’s powerful vocals has also been put to show earlier in a duet done with Jang Ri In for her first Chinese Album [I Will] in the song [Wrongly Given Love] etc.

SHINee who has captured all noona’s hearts with their debut single [Noona, you are so pretty] has also became popular everywhere instantly with their unique and original ‘short track dance’ from the song. This trendy ‘short track dance’ has not only become a popular dance step for all korean teens to compete in imitating, even seniors Super Junior were also dancing to it at public performances and radio shows.

Other than that, with all the love from the ‘Noona Army’, SHINee’s first album [The SHINee World] managed to top Korea’s album sales charts and their title track [Love Like Oxygen] has also managed to received first place at popular music show Inkigayo. At the end of the year when all major artistes are coming their comebacks, SHINee still manages to stay at the ‘strongest newcomer’ position, even senior Dong Bang Shin Ki gave SHINee a thumbs up and praised that they are really a great and very powerful group.

Now, after working so hard in Korea for more than half a year, SHINee is finally giving their last overseas trip in 2008; and also their first Christmas holidays, to Taiwan. SHINee will be coming for an estimated length of 3 days 2 night (12/24-12/26) to promote their new repacked album [AMIGO], but because the trip to Taiwan has been last minute and it clashes with the Christmas festival, the records company will be rushing to plan all the schedules for the trip, as of now, there will be a public promotional activity, more news will be released once everything is confirmed, SHINee’s first album version C [AMIGO] Asia Special Edition has also been released in Taiwan too!

SHINee’s Shining Christmas In Taiwan “One and Only Handshake Event”

Date: 2008/12/25 (Thursday)
Time: 20:00PM Start
Venue: Taipei International Conference Center, Level 2, Room 101

Entry Criteria: Queuing with SHINee’s Version C album [AMIGO] full album. (No inner booklets only, no notes or mini album CD)

*All handshake event participants will be able to receive a limited edition of a set of Christmas cards made to commemorate SHINee’s first visit to Taiwan”


  1. Um…it’s nice that they get to go to Taiwan(where Candychu can’t molest them) but am I the only one who sees something wrong with them promoting the album during Christmas? They barely see their families already, and now they’re missing this too? Whoever organized the trip couldn’t just put it on the 26th-28th? So many questions!? Lol

    Anyway, at least they’ll be together, and it’s a great thing for Taiwanese fans.^^

  2. ^LMAO, HEY! You’re starting to sound like bec and PAS with your “where Candychu can’t molest them”. You say it like I would. Because I wouldn’t. (It wouldn’t really be a bad thing anyway.)

    And yeah, sucks that though they have a few days off, it actually means they’ll be going overseas and just spending time with other fans. (Actually, I’m secretly wishing they’ll then go to HK for the 27th and 28th for SJMs concert. But then I think I’m just being greedy .____.) Maybe they’ll be able to spend New Years with their family?

  3. I’m not particularly pleased that they’re spending Christmas away from their families either but what can you do? The boys do sound excited about going at least so that’s a small plus. That’s great for the Taiwanese fans tho.
    Hmm, I have a PB account and there are a ton of calendar scans on SHINee Forums – I’ll try to reup to my account and then link you to it, okay? But I’m not making any promises because PB totally conked out on me earlier tonight.
    LOL, just think about the fact that you get to see Super Junior M and don’t dwell on where SHINee will be.

  4. China always gets the boys. :\ And at least you can see SJM. I won’t be seeing anyone any time soon. ;~;

    But Christmas is supposed to be family time. Knowing that they won’t be home for the holidays makes me sad… but entertainers never take breaks–especially SM talents. They only stop working if they’re injured and they always go back to work even before they’ve completely recovered. ;~;

  5. Here’s the link to the PB account – made an album with just those shots, okay?

  6. yumimaki
    Omg, I just checked their schedule and they’re so freaking busy ;~; I really hope they don’t get sick & can have another break for New Yrs. And thank you so much for uploading the pics. I hope PB works for me and the computer will cooperate :D <3333

    Thailand gets the boys a lot too :/ (And lol I’m pretty sure Malaysia – that’s where you live, right? – gets more than Australia T____T).

    Yeah I really hope they stay fit and healthy </3

  7. they are supposed on taiwan broadcast yue le bai fen bai live on christmas eve, anyone know y they aren’t attending?

  8. ^Hey, sorry I haven’t watched any videos of them in Taiwan so I’m not sure. I think they may have been talked about on yue le bai fen bai, actually :S

  9. Any Shinee fans and Suju fans here? Because I know Shinee is coming to Taiwan on Sept 19 and I really want to go see them live! The only problem is that I dont know any Shinee fans here yet. So, if you’re a fan, send me a message. :D i need some help! heres my email:

    • WHAT!? I had no idea SHINee were going to Taiwan!? I read around and I haven’t seen any news…
