The handling of the different situations points to the way that SM Entertainment handles its more mature groups versus groups that still struggle for a foothold in the industry. Super Junior has gone through multiple member shifts as well as the scandal of one member being sent to the army due to drunk driving and fighting. I thought you were going to post the pictures of Taeyeon and Baekhyun in a car in the open with their hood down SHINee has also promoted without individual members, but the group is much more popular as five. Describe it as sweet or romantic, Kyung Ho admitted that he does not listen to any type music except tracks released by the girl group. At this point, neither Girls' Generation nor Super Junior risk anything professionally by dating.
The same cannot be said about junior groups, even ones like SHINee and f x that have very defined concepts and have seen numerous successes.
Who has a boyfriend in Girls Generation?
Anyways to answer your question, I think jewelry and phone cases are cute, but wearing the same outfit is Taemin's solo debut is the first sign that SHINee is transitioning from one of SM's junior groups to one where the individual members have so much love that they are no longer reliant on the group image. EXO is still reeling from Kris' departure, and Baekhyun's scandal risked alienating fans who still see the member as an idol rather than a person. Friends closest to the artists stated that the breakup was due to their busy schedules.
