We recently reported that SHINee will be making their debut in Japan with “Replay” on June 22. The group will be releasing both a limited edition premium version and a regular version of the album. Because of the popularity of ringtones in Japan, EMI Music will be offering the ringtone version through mobile sites starting April 28.
Besides changes in the music video, there will also be major adjustments to the singing parts of each member. It is predicted that Taemin and Minho will be given more parts considering their lack of lines in the Korean version.
Considered as an “irreplaceable classic” by professionals in the music industry, ‘Replay’ was chosen to be most suitable as SHINee’s debut song. The lyrics are also said to be rewritten well to fit the Japanese language.
In anticipation for their upcoming debut, SHINee filmed a video thanking their fans for their support. The group begins in unison, “Everyone from Japan, this is shining SHINee.” They bow and each member introduces themselves.
Onew: Nice to meet you, I’m shining SHINee’s leader, Onew.
Jonghyun: Hello, I’m SHINee’s “Bling Bling, Jonghyun.”
Taemin: Hello, I’m SHINee’s maknae, Taemin.
Minho: Hello, I’m SHINee’s “Flaming Charisma, Minho.”
Key: Hello, I’m SHINee’s “Almighty Key, Key.”
Onew continued, “Finally, we will make our Japanese debut with ‘Replay.’” Key added, “Thank you to our fans warm support, which is the reason why we decided to debut in Japan. From now on, we will sing and perform as SHINee so that we can respond to your support. We will always do our best. Please look forward to it.” The group then ended with, “This is shining SHINee!”
On the official Japanese SHINee website, the concept image for SHINee’s debut was revealed. As reported earlier, Key and Taemin have dyed their hair blonde and red, respectively. In the photo, the members sport short hair and colorful, casual clothing while standing in a room filled with balloons.
SHINee was also featured in two Japanese newspapers, the “Sankei Sports” and “Sanspo Kan Fun.” The Sanspo article reveals that the popular five-member boy group will debut in Japan on June 22. In celebration of their debut, a special event will be held in the Abbey Road Studio in London. The place is a significant tourist attraction because of its past; the Beatles recorded most of their albums there. SHINee’s performance marks the first time the studio will be used by Asian artists. The event has been scheduled to take place June 19, and Japanese fans have been invited to attend.
Mezamashi TV is scheduled to introduce SHINee’s music video to Japanese shawols tomorrow. They will also broadcast greetings from the group.
