Scans of SHINee’s photoshoot have been uploaded, and you can view them here.
Overall, the poses are the usual boy-band-modelling, a little androgynous (see Onew touching Jonghyun’s waist here), and Jonghyun sticking out his tongue unnecessarily here to make fangirls swoon. Also, an interesting picture of Key wearing a leopard print sports jacket while Onew is roaring at him, quite possibly the most symbolically interesting photo out of the bunch.
They each shot close-ups:
All of them look all right, and Onew still looks like a dork who doesn’t know how to look at a camera sexily, but that’s why we love him.
The only thing is.. why is Jonghyun dripping? Why is he the only one drippping?!
I must be missing something here. Why is Jonghyun the only one to have been doused with water (clearly not sweat or the nape of his neck would have been glistening)? I like what the water does to his eyelashes, they magnify them and reflect light.
This is sort of disturbing to me. Why is he the only one wet and why is my kindergartener mind going berserk with this? I suppose out of all the members, Jonghyun is seen as a ‘player’ because of his more masculine body, even though Minho is considered the most handsome. They all said someone in the group who they wouldn’t introduce their sister to is Jonghyun– which I think is unfair. Taemin is probably more of a player than Jonghyun. For all Jonghyun’s self-confidence, he’s just a little puppy inside.. I get that feeling, after all, he’s the one who wrote the lyrics to Juliette!
So I suppose they’re more comfortable with Jonghyun assuming the more flagrant sex symbol role.. i.e. being wet when no one else is. Classy, GQ.
