In case you didn't know, Universal created some kind of parody group called "SHINyan", and it's composed of... cats
It's composed of 5 cats supposedly named ONEWNyan, JONGNyan, TAEMINyan, MINONyan and KEYNyan. They even have an official website with blog posts. You can find detailed member bios here.
SHINyan was created to greet fans that the original SHINee cannot meet with, due to their hectic schedules. The rookie group is the first cat idol group ever to debut, with a song titled "Because of You for Cat", which is the cat version of SHINee's upcoming new release "Because of You".
Leader Onewyan shared his passion as he said, "We are practicing everyday to show perfect and furry moves. We want more people to know SHINee, and also want to become famous enough one day to be recognized as SHINyan alone."
So it's basically just some kind of really weird publicity stunt they made for their upcoming Japanese single, but I thought I'd still share it here
. I don't even know if the members were actually aware this was happening because Key posted a picture of it on Instagram
and said "Ah…This…picture… I thought it was just a cute, edited photo that was posted online… It turns out it’s actually something our company released? Hmm..I’m really taken aback.
But let's move on to the INTERESTING NEWS! Jonghyun will be releasing his first full-length solo album at the end of May (no set date yet) after Tiffany's solo debut!!
