On October 4, SHINee held a showcase for their upcoming album “1 of 1” where they performed their new track. Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung acted as an MC during the event!
During the showcase, member Taemin explained the choreography behind the song. “While deciding on the choreography, I had a meeting with the choreographer. I wanted an easy choreography to approach the general public easily. But it ended up being very much like our usual dances. You can feel the youthful energy as well this time. However, it has the easiest rhythm with the easiest movements,” explained Taemin.
When the group was asked to name their “1 of 1,” Onew replied, “It’s my family, the fans, the members, and the people around me.” Taemin responded, “Though the song talks about a lover, I think my ‘1 of 1’ is myself.” Jonghyun responded with “Family,” while Minho said, “My members and my fans. When we were practicing, I received strength from the members in order to stand on the stage together, and we were able to return with a perfect energy because of the encouragement from fans.” Finally Key answered, “There are many things but currently my ‘1 of 1’ is promoting.”
SHINee’s title track “1 of 1” is a track that embodies a 90s feel and incorporates the new jack swing genre and an R&B melody. It is set to release on October 4 at midnight KST.
