As one of the legendary SM Entertainment boy groups, SHINee has been enchanting fans with their performances, music, and stage charisma for over a decade. Fans have always been intrigued by the dynamics between the members and their ever-evolving stage formations. Recently, a curious observation made by a fan on TheQoo concerning the standing order during their concert led to an insight that speaks volumes about the group's bond and history.

Key's Heartwarming Explanation

Key, while browsing TheQoo for his recent YouTube video on the popular 1theK Originals channel, chanced upon the post. He did not hesitate to not only confirm the observation but also provide a heartwarming explanation behind it.

"That's true. For almost 10 years, we've been performing in 5-person formations. So, somehow, I found myself standing this way."

A Testament to Their Deep Bond

Key's words elucidate the deep bond that SHINee members share and the indelible mark that their shared experiences have left on them. While they might not consciously leave the space, their muscle memory and years of practice inherently lead them to stand that way.

"We can't help it. It wasn't intentional, but we're so used to it."
