Shawols, or SHINee’s official fandom name (SHINee+World), can look forward to purchasing from 7 different album versions: DREAMER Ver., MAKER Ver., RUNNER Ver., SMini Ver., Digipack Ver., and PLAY Ver. DREAMER, MAKER, and RUNNER versions of the album all come with a photobook, photo card, poster, and bromide. PLAY version comes with other fun freebies such as a lyrics board, assembly toy, rules leaflet, folded poster, and a mini poster. Check out your local in-person or online K-pop album store to check out what other album versions come with.

SHINee recently celebrated the 15th anniversary of their debut as a contemporary R&B K-pop boy group with a sold-out fan meeting for local Shawols at the Jamsil Indoor Stadium. S.M. Entertainment also live-streamed the event on Beyond LIVE for international fans to join in and celebrate worldwide.


On May 22, 2008, SHINee debuted under S.M. Entertainment with the release of “Replay” which captured everyone’s hearts. The members consist of five members: Onew, Key, Minho, Taemin, and the late Jonghyun. From causing a buzz with their addictive song, “Ring Ding Dong (2010)”, to their summer-vibing track, “View (2015)”, SHINee has contributed to paving the way for the 2nd generation of K-pop idol boy groups. 

As we are approaching the rumored start of the 5th generation of the K-pop industry with artists such as the anticipated debuts this summer of ZEROBASEONE, a group that is produced under WAKEONE Entertainment after championing on the Boys’ Planet Survival Show, and BabyMonster from YG Entertainment, SHINee continues to come back with successful music to share with Shawols globally.
