Lee Taemin is my bias.

In overall, SHINee is really good. I love them really bad. I knew them first at 2010 on my magazine. I liked Jjong first but after the watching the Ring Ding Dong video, I lose good impression on them. Since then, I never touched KPop again. But this year, I accidentally typed 'cutest KPop guys' on Google and found a list. When I saw Taemin on number three, I almost shrieked how cute is he. I began to like KPop music again since then.
