The SHINee member with the largest collection of female cellphone numbers is…
On the April 26th broadcast of tvN‘s ‘Taxi‘, the SHINee members participated in an ‘image ranking’ talk segment where they enthusiastically revealed each others’ secrets.
When MC Lee Young Ja asked, “Who is the member with the most female numbers in their cellphone?“, the SHINee members began to tease and gave a tense look towards Jonghyun. Feeling a bit uneasy, Jonghyun said, “This is getting really intense!”
All of the members ended up choosing Jonghyun, with the exception of the man himself who chose Key and stated, “Key has many connections. Regardless of male or female, he has over 190 contacts in his phone.”
However, fellow member Minho revealed, “Jonghyun’s contacts have a different feel from those of Key’s“, to which MC Gong Hyun Jin pounced by commenting, “Just a while ago when we got off the taxi, all the members were talking to each other but I saw Jonghyun texting by himself!”
As members Key and Minho giggled at Jonghyun’s increasing discomfort, MC Lee Young Ja continued the interrogation by asking, “Who was it that you were texting?“, to which Jonghyun answered evasively, “They went to a few guys and also girls. I was in the midst of a group chat.”
Finally, member Key rounded up the assault by ending in a cheeky note, “I have personally never seen it but Jonghyun’s contacts have a certain feel to them. Carefully think about what it means when all the members choose him… there is definitely a reason.”
SHINee’s Key speaks up about his hardships during his trainee days
SHINee‘s Key confessed that he cried almost everyday during his trainee days.
The group guested on the April 26th episode of tvN‘s ‘Taxi‘ and revealed each of their hardships they had overcome.
Key spoke up about his hardships he had experienced in order to become a singer saying, “I came to Seoul from Daegu for the first time when I was 15 years old. My skills weren’t improving and on top of that, people kept criticizing and pointing out my weak points so I was very depressed. I used to cry a lot while riding on the train.”
Coming to Seoul by himself, Key was unable to adapt quickly. “When I go through hard times, I need to have a place where I can go back to whether it’s my home or a friend’s home. However, during my stay in Seoul, I had no where to go so it was better for me to keep myself busy at all times.”
Fellow member Taemin then relayed an anecdote of when Key had come over to his house without his knowledge. Key shyly replied, “I didn’t care whose house it was. I just wanted to go over to anybody’s house and ended up going to Taemin’s, but he wasn’t home at that time. I ended up waiting for him while playing with his dog and left.”
He continued, “I was depressed and had a difficult time, but after enduring it for three years, I was able to debut. I believe that the reason why I’m here now is all thanks to the past.”
