Kpop Fun Fact #1: SHINee’s ‘domino’ greeting


Fun Fact Of Kpop #1.

Group SHINee has been the topic amongst netizens recently, not only for their growing number of #1 won on music charts and music shows with their recent hit ‘Ring Ding Dong’ or for the fact that member JongHyun was down with swine flu, but there has been a thread of discussion about something interesting regarding their greeting.

Go under the cut to find out about their ‘domino greetings’.

It seems that the natural instincts of the Korean netizens being sharp at the smallest things are working up.

A netizens compiled many of the group’s greeting and bowing photos and found that they really have a ‘domino effect’.


Other netizens say:

  • “kkkkk As I scroll down, I can’t help but laugh out loud… this is so funny and the boys are so freaking cute”
  • “Ahhh this is funny”
  • “These kids are so cute. So they do 90degrees bow? I hope they do well”
  • “I like it that they are really polite in this sense. And it’s funny even if you can’t see their faces in the photos”

I love the photos! Hope JongHyun gets well soon!

  14. seriously, this is funny!

  15. LOL a lot of artists bow like that! It’s basic to do a 90 degrees bow especially if you’re young in the industry! Don’t drag SM into this! It’s called respect!

  16. Hahaha random. You can’t even see their faces from those pix.

    The guys are really cute too. ^^

  23. Sm must force themto do that

    • well bowing politely goes for every artist in kpop.

      companies usually “teach” them to bow down like that.

      not only sm -_-

    • “Sm must force themto do that”.. LOL…loser.
      … shinee boys are cute 😀

    • wtf? maybe it’s because they’re naturally polite. why on earth are you dragging SM into this?

    • um.. i dont think so
      its part of korean culture to bow when formally greeting someone if you didnt know..

  24. Just like the netizen above, as i scroll down, I’m laughing out loud. They are so cuuuute~

    I love the fact that they are always doing a 90 degree bow. Very polite boys. Maybe because they are still young and they respect their sunbaes and audiences very much?

    Aaack, anyway. Im so proud of these boys! Job well done on Ring Ding Dong!

  25. Keke the shinee boys are one of a kind!! =)
