SHINee who is bursting with popularity, releasing a ballad as their new single

The group SHINee who managed to get in the top 3 ranking of the Oricon chart for 5 continuous releases ever since their debut, will be releasing a new single "For 1000 years, always be by my side..." on 12 December with presales available throughout the whole world. SHINee, who debuted in Korea in May 2008, is a 5 member group of Onew, Jonghyun, Key, Minho and Taemin. In June 2011 they debuted in Japan with single "Replay - you're my everything -" and gained the title of "The artist who managed to get in top 3 for 3 continuous releases since debut" for the foreign artist category. Such an achievement had never been gained by anyone else ever since the single ranking chart was established 44 years ago in January 1968, proving their bursting popularity.

Their previous release, "Dazzling Girl," was their first Japanese original and set the record of over 100,000 sales in the first week as they sat in the second place of the Oricon single ranking. That is enough to gain much attention towards this coming release.

This time they'll release another complete Japanese original single. This is also the first time for SHINee to promote a ballad song. The song is about the pain of not being able to convey ones feelings even after thousands of years, and how extreme a man would become. It is a song which is sung in beautiful harmony. Furthermore, the music video is a very fine work. The script was done with the musical piece as the theme. As the story developed, it was produced to be like a short film.

The coupling song is "The world where you exist". It is a refreshing rap ballad which is expected to fit being listened to in the wintertime.

Also, their first arena tour, "SHINee THE FIRST JAPAN ARENA TOUR 'SHINee WORLD' 2012'", included 20 concerts held between April to July across 7 cities throughout Japan. The tour managed to gather about 200,000 audience members, and will be released as a live DVD & Blu-ray on the same day. Next to the live concert itself, concert rehearsal and back stage coverage clips will also be included as bonus movies, which are must-see videos for fans.

The new single is a release that will no doubt become a hot topic. Surely SHINee will be gaining even more attention from now on.
