“Selene 6.23″ is an emotional ballad that showcases the SHINee members’ exceptional vocal skills. The sad lyrics are about a person who is in love but not being able to reach her. It is written by SHINee member Jonghyun.
Another new track, “Better Off” is included in the album. It is a mid-tempo pop ballad that beautifully expresses the sadness of a break-up.
Upon the release of the album, Jonghyun tweeted, “Yahoo! SHINee’s new songs in ‘The Misconceptions of Us’ have been released. It’s the combination of the ‘me’ and ‘you’ albums and there are two new songs, ‘Selene 6.23′ and ‘Better Off.’”

SM Entertainment announced on August 7 that they will be opening a hybrid entertainment arena in Los Angeles. 

The tentative name of venue is “SMTOWN Museum.” SM Entertainment had considered opening a place in Hollywood for locals to experience Hallyu Wave, but after considering the influx of locals and tourists in Korean Town, the agency bought a building in the heart of Korea Town.
The building is located on the corner of Oxford street and will most likely be the location for the proposed “SMTOWN Museum.” 
A representative of SM Town said, “For long term and stable business promotion in the United States, SM Entertainment USA has purchased the building. It will be in the form of a museum with Korean restaurants, entertainment venues, and showcases that use hologram and other media.”

(TAEMIN and NAEUN) The two decide to watch “Twilight” to be inspired for their photo shoot

[Recap] Love Makes Us Look Picture Perfect – We Got Married 070613

The two decide to watch “Twilight” to be inspired for their photo shoot. They get all giggly and shy when the kiss scene comes on, but that only makes it more fun because Taemin starts to act a little more natural. Like when he gulps in the teenage-boy-with-raging-hormones kind of way during the kiss scene. The most natural and spontaneous act he does during the whole episode is when he tries to show off to Na Eun and ends up kicking a ball to his face. I went back and watched that scene three times because it was just so perfect and so Taemin. Taemin recovers, and after they try to see how close they can get face to face (result: not very close), Taemin reveals his method of giving Na Eun his number. While the gesture is sweet, it puts the responsibility of exchanging numbers in Na Eun’s hands, and even Taemin doesn’t think she’s going to text him anytime soon.

Taemin and Son Na Eun - WE GOT MARRIED

[Recap] Love Makes Us Look Picture Perfect – We Got Married 070613

Taemin and Son Na Eun (and Key‘s puppy?) are on their favorite spot: on the couch. The two have fun with helium balloons, but it was all part of Taemin’s plan to get Na Eun to reveal her feelings for him. Then Taemin not so slyly brings up movies and not so subtly asks Na Eun if she ever went to the movies with a guy. I love this couple but the whole “push and pull” game is getting more and more obvious and less and less fun to watch. How many more times will we watch Taemin drill Na Eun about her personal life, get into a fake jealous rage, try to make Na Eun jealous, and then grin as he brings up his mother as the punchline. There’s a system, and the system is only fun when it’s not obvious.
