I've heard a few MC’s from their live performances mentioned their name as: SHINY - meaning Radiating light; bright, Bright from reflected light; glistening. Subsequently my buddy mentioned their group name as SHEEN-E.

For my part I’d rather quote their name as Sheen-e over Shiny. Shiny is a bit strange. =P So yeah, you’re free to state the correct pronunciation here. It is just confusing.

It's "SHINE" and then it flows with the letter "e."
It's romanized as sha-i-ni, so I guess in terms of trying to describe how it's pronounced, it would be relatively close as to how people would pronounce "Shiny" or even "shy knee."
But I've never heard them being called sheen-e ever before.

Lol. No problem.
But since I know I sucked at describing how their SHINee's pronounced in written words ...

You can try listening to how they say SHINee in some of the videos under the "SHINee Extras" tag here at Crunchy. Or an even better suggestion is watching the videos on Youtube under the user, shineesubs:

http://www.youtube.com/user/shineesubs

They sub a lot of SHINee clips, and if you're new to this group, I definitely recommend watching videos from them, since they offer fast and great subs. SHINee's clips are just adorable XD and they even have a reality show. That's how I got hooked on the first place. :lol:

According to a Korean friend of mine, it's pronounced as the word shiny /shay-nee/ from the root word shine.

Yes, it is pronounced as "shiny" (shine-ee, if you want^^).
The name in Korean is 샤이니.
The correct romanization is "sya" (shya) - "i" (ee) - "ni" (nee), which gives us "syaini" (shyaeenee) pronounced quicky: shiny ^.^
Here, our shiny boys <3:
