Minho wrote, “SHINee World!! My, our Shawols~~ Everyone ~~ Time has passed so quickly, it’s already our 10th anniversary. We met on May 25, 2008 and now it’s May 25, 2018. We’ve had a lot of memories, both happy and sad, over the last 10 years. I can’t think of anything else to say than truly, ‘Thank you so much.’ So really, thank you so much. Let’s spend our time together even more happily from now on, making happy memories to the point of tears. For sure! I’m lacking in many ways, but I’ll show you all a better, more positive, more refined side of myself! I will always be with Shawols ~ Please stay by SHINee’s side ~~ Thank you and I love you all so much.”
Taemin shared, “Everyone! Hello, this is Taemin. It’s somehow already become 10 years while we were crazily racing forward. I always imagined this day in the past; time flies by so quickly. I wonder how you all feel… I think you all are probably feeling these inexplicable emotions like me, right? I’ve always said the words, ‘for you all’ a lot as if it were habit, but I feel that I’m always depending on you and relying on you. So I want to honestly say, ‘I’ll depend and rely on you all more from now on,’ haha. I’ve always been thankful and I’ve always been happy. Please continue to look out for my lacking self in the future. I love you all so much.”
Happy anniversary to SHINee!
