SHINee's Week In Review aka Damn, They Did A Lot Of Stuff!

It's been a long ass week since SHINee came back with " Dream Girl ".  I feel as if it's been two weeks all condensed into one and I wasn't even there with them.  One can only imagine how hellish it was for the boys as they darted from place to place to place, but worth it for them in the end (we hope). If you missed anything this past week, here's where to get it; so let's relive the craziness, starting with their comeback date:

SHINee's "Dream Girl" Photobook Scans Pt. 2 (Individual)

There were too many lovely SHINee " Dream Girl " photobook scans to publish on one post so I had to break them up into two posts.  This one is all about the individual pics of each boy; you can see the group pics here .  Is it just me or is there way more pics of Taemin and Key than the others?  This seems to be the norm for SHINee. (This post is extremely image heavy)

SHINee's Surreal "Dream Girl" Photobook Scans Pt. 1 (Group)

I know it's taken me awhile to post SHINee 's " Dream Girl " photobook scans.  Firstly, because I knew there'd be a ton of pics and secondly, because I figured it would take awhile for all the HQ pics to show up.  Well guess what?  There are a TON of pics and they're really pretty.  You can also take a look at pt 2. featuring individual pics of all the boys  here .

[K-Dramatic] Idols in K-Dramas: A Winning Combination

By: Joan M. My favorite new kpop expression is fan service—the idea that idols will go the extra mile to make their fans happy.  And for me there’s no better fan service than spending 12-plus hours watching talented and personable kpop stars acting in a kdrama.  When you’re already a fan, it can make the viewing experience much more entertaining.
