SHINee ;; the name
Posted 9/21/08
-is new to SHINee-

Anyways, when I first heard of SHINee, I thought it was pronounced
'shee-nay'


Yeah, so a month later, I finally got off my lazy butt and searched them here on CR.
And then I read that SHINee is actually pronounced pretty much like 'shiny'.

I really like how SM spelled out their name, it does look cool.
But does anyone else feel like the way we pronounce it sort of weird? .____.



It would sound like:

"OMGSH! I love shiny! They can sing so well!"


I mean, doesn't that sound kind of weird? .____.



Just in case people start attacking me:
I'm not trying to put down SHINee or anything.
It's just the name I find weird, and I know I can't change anything about it.

--yup! for me ~ "shiny" is kinda weird than "sheen-e"..
well, it all depends on the person anyway..
but who cares? we love them whatever the pronounciation is..

Haha I thought if was like Shin or something, but then I watched live performances and found out it was pronounced shiny. I think it's an awesome name no matter how weird it is to say shiny is my favorite korean pop band.

At first I also thought it was pronounced "shin-ee" but then I learned from friends it's "shay-nee." Spelling's cool but yeah, pronunciation and the meaning of "shiny" is quite odd for a band. Anyway, the name of the band is important but it doesn't define the band's future. With such faces and talents, this new band sure is something to watch for!
