SHINee – Sherlock: Kpop Music Mondays

Soy un Dorito!

Yes, Taemin at 2:08 says, in Spanish, that he’s a Dorito. Well, he probably doesn’t…but it sounds like he does!

Ok: less talk about Doritos, more about the awesomeness of this song. For starters, we’ve read some comments from people who were upset by the song and found it disappointing, which is shocking to us, because this song – to us – is one of their catchiest songs. It could be because we’ve only really gotten into SHINee since Lucifer. I mean, we liked SHINee before Lucifer, but we weren’t really Shawols. Side note: we don’t know how to pronounce Shawols. We keep on saying “Shawls” and think of scarfs. Anyhow, the whole point that we’re trying to get at is that maybe because we weren’t dedicated die-hard SHINee fans for a long time, maybe everyone else was expecting something different/more from SHINee? I don’t know. We’re totally digging the song and we’re happy that SHINee’s finally made their comeback.

Otherwise: we went on another Engrish rant here. We’re happy that SHINee didn’t fantastic elastic anything in the song, but that newspaper at the end was just absurd. Did you get a good look at it? If not, here it is:

SHINee Sherlock Newspaper

Shinee jewelry found 3:00 am yesterday Louis had found them in the museum is a jewel.

BBBBABABABBRRFGGGHH! What is this nonsense? Why would SM include this part? Who’s it for? We’re not Korean, so we don’t know how Korean people will react to seeing this. Maybe “oh! It looks cool”? I don’t know. But for those of you English speakers: how can you look at this and NOT cringe? This is unnecessarily bad. And – come the hell on – SM’s a freaking multi-million dollar company. Can’t they afford an English speaker? We’re Eatyourkimchi: a nowhere-close-to-being-million-dollar-worth company, and we can dole out the money for a Korean translator. And our Korean audience is surely smaller than SM’s English speaking audience. Why can’t SM do the same for their foreign audience?

Side note: the headline for the 1910 article was hilarious. A) March 23rd 1910 is a Wednesday, not a Friday, like the article suggested (we checked) and B) Stupidest article ever. It’s an article about being the most beautiful woman and jewelry? Who would write an article about that?

Writer: “Hey Boss! I got a great idea for our main headline for tomorrow’s news: here’s a picture of a hot chick in front of some jewelry”
Boss: “Wow that’s bloody brilliant! Write some nonsensical drivel about it and I’ll publish it without spellchecking!”
Writer: “Deal! Gee Boss, you’re the best Boss ever!”

Ok enough of that. The plot for the video sucked, but the song was awesome and so was the dancing. I mean, come on! You don’t have to be a Kpop fanatic to respect the dancing. Sure, some of it looks silly, like the Russian peacock dance, which we happen to personally like, but when you see SHINee moving with each other in line, popping out of line, grabbing each others arms…you know you’re witnessing something pretty impressive. Seriously: SHINee can freaking dance.

Altogether, we’re so impressed by SHINee’s comeback that we felt compelled to go out and buy a couple of albums to give away for you all. Want to win them? All you gotta do is tell us your favorite part of the dance and your clever name for it. Boom! It’s that easy. You can do so over at Facebook in the Contest Thread, or here in the comments. If you’re gonna post it here in the comments to this post, though, make sure you add your YouTube username so we can make sure you’ve subscribed to us, of course! Woot!

Otherwise, if you’d like to pick up the album on your own, you can do so through iTunes, or by going through YesAsia. Woot!

shin

Also, we’d like to apologize for all the confusion over the KpopCharts for the past two weeks. We were in Japan last weekend, and we thought we’d have enough juice to come back and make a video, but helllll Japan exhausted us – in a good way, mind you – but we were still too pooped to make a decent Music Monday. And, yes, we know that the counters keep on crashing. We’ve got a developer working on fixing it (but it ain’t easy. You all just looooooove crashing our servers). Hopefully it’ll be fixed soon!

On a less serious note: Bloopers! Doesn’t Simon make the best Taemin? Ooooh! You so nayusty!

And, lastly, if you’d like to rock out to our awesome instrumental rendition of SHINee’s “Sherlock: (not sure why you would because it sucks!) you can do so here:

  1. I’m pretty sure the toilet paper and other random items were demarcating the stage size. During practices, especially for dances, you need to be sure your performance fits the stage, otherwise you risk falling off…I’ve seen it happen…

  6. Damn this is hard…
    But I say Taemin’s hair.
    GD’s hair is pure awesomeness but any hairstyle would fit him anyways ! On the other hand, not every haircut fit Taemin… no no no… So he owns this one and this victory over GD’s hair.

  8. TROLOLOLOL at the toilet paper and cup in background ^_^ I saw it and nearly burst out laughing (which would have been bad considering I’m in a quiet place)

    I’d vote for Taemin’s extensions all the way. SM brought us back the wonderful Lucifer hair back ^_^ GD kind of looks like a My Little Pony hehehe

  9. Definitely GD! Like Martina said in the last video, it doesn’t look ATTRACTIVE on him, but GD still manages to pull it off. I have no idea how, but he did :D

  10. My favorite part of the dance has to be at 02:01, dude.. that part is so funny xD I wonder how they are going to execute it on stage if some of them wear sleevless shirts, because Korean tends to cover their armpits (wether they have hair or not) Well I guess Jonghyun is the one who has to suffer the most, he’s the only one uncapable of covering his armpits. Apart from the awkward ‘should I cover my armpits to be polite, or should I not?’ moment, the dance is actually kind off cool. Really it’s something that I have never seen before, and that is quite important for me :) 

    I’ll call this dance “Standing-in-the-Middle-has-it’s-Consuquences”

  12. I’m biasedassessment on Youtube. Favorite dance by far is the linked arm movements done at 2:01, right before Taemin tells us he’s a Dorito.. The name: “Arm pit check? Nevermind D;” Members no likey the smell of Jonghyun’s pits. 

    (All this talk about Pit… Simon, go play Kid Icarus Uprising D:<)Seriously, this has got to be my favorite choreography from them. They use all the members in a way that the dance would be off with one of them missing. I often feel like K-Pop has an issue with being so interchangeable, members can sometimes feel useless/extra. This song definitely did not suffer from that and makes me, as a viewer, appreciate all the members.That being said, thank you for expressing all of my thoughts on the mess of the story line that was in between all the awesome dancing. You guys expressed all of my issues, and that ghost skit was one of your funniest.

  14. Guise, can you please explain me how do you pick the videos that you put in the KPop Charts? CN Blue’s Hey You is already in the charts, and Seo Ji Sub’s Such A Story is still not while I had submitted it before Hey You was out. I thought the only requirements were that the video has to be new and in Korean, but there is probably something else since Such A Story, LED Apple’s Someone met by chance and some other never made it though I had submitted them on time. Please clarify this. Thank you.

    My favorite part was no doubt during Key’s rap! He’s so fierce when he comes out, and even more I love it live. He has so much charisma, makes me hyper xD and the thing with the leg at that part LOL I can tell you I have no shame doing it in the halls in school when I wanna troll someone.

  20. I loved your review on their comeback and I completely share your disappointments with the m/v. haha but they’re still so awesome & beautiful!<3 ^^V I would say my favorite dance move would be around 3:47.  I would call it the "puff daddy" ^^;; hehe (username: zerobass08)

  21. My YT username is Tangyzong :) 
    My favourite dance move is when Jonghyun raises his and puts his hands behind his head, then the other kind of hold each other’s elbows (it’s around the 1:49 marks in the dance only MV)? It’s hard to explain, but I’d call it the “smell my armpits” dance ^^ (or “tell me if I need deodorant”? especially since they kind of go away from him afterwards :3)

    • hahaha. I love Taemin with extensions too. Actually.. whatever they do to Taemin, I’ll still love this boy. He can never look bad in any hairdo, no matter what they do to him!

    •  I love him with long hair.  The extensions he had in Lucifer were awesome. This time, it looks like they just weren’t done right, which is why his hair looks all lumpy in spots… and likely part of why he is wearing it pulled back or under a hat in performances…

      4 years ago
    • Me too.. he’s kinda look androgyny.. still not loosing his masculine charm tho.. but i gotta admit the hair extension in the mv looks bad.. but it’s getting better when their did live performances..

    • taemin’s weave is really one of his best looks, and I really like it. While some people find taemin “girly”, I think taemin is “manly” enough to pull it off. ~~

    • I also love his extensions. I love Taemin with long hair. ^^

  26.  I think they used google translate for the newspaper article. A shame, but it wouldn’t be SM without an English fail somewhere.

    I also think their promo pictures are weird, but so were SJ promo pics.

    Lastly, I kind of love how your laptop isn’t on your counter, but a roll of toilet paper is. I didn’t even notice until you mentioned the laptop in the music video.

  28. My YouTube username: Shirley36

    My favorite part of the dance: During Key’s rap, when they do that thing with the legs… I’d call it the “Kicking imaginary dirt in your face because we’re awesome like that” dance.

  29. My facorite part is the robot part.
    Where Taemin is the first one to come out and then Onew , then Jonghyun, then Key and finally Minho?

  33. I like the leprechaun walking/skipping part of the dance. It reminds of that italian movie where the jewish dad is trying not to freak his son out so he does that high knee walk on his way to a hidden corner to get shot by a nazi. i guess you could call the dance “The jewish running away” dance.?
