Shinee is a popular South Korean R&B group of all-male members. Although the group has been wildly popular in Asia for more than half a decade, their recent success has led them to acclaim in the West. The New Year has been particularly kind to the band, bringing new career opportunities and awards.
At the 28th Golden Disk, Shinee won an impressive three awards, a promising start to their recognition in the West. At the awards ceremony, the band had the chance to perform Dream Girl and Everybody, two of their most popular and recent songs. The Shinee guys even shared pictures from the momentous occasion with their fans on social media.
After raking in the awards, Shinee has promised to appear on several different variety shows at the beginning of the year. Variety shows are a popular outlet for South Korean bands to get to know their fans better and show off their casual side offstage. Onew, one of the band's most iconic members, has even been asked to appear in Laws of the Jungle, a Borneo-based show.
Last but not least, Shinee has received nominations for multiple awards in the Kpop Awards ceremony. With so much recognition around the world, it's clear that the band is still on the rise to the top. A recent album release in 2013 has left fans wondering when the next album will be released from this busy boy band.
