Real men wear make-up, says SHINee

One might wonder who the boys of South Korean pop quintet SHINee turn to for their fashion cues.

After all, they're often decked out in eye-catching, trendy outfits. It turns out that, sometimes, the boys' fashion idols are each other.

That's the case for the group's leader, Onew, who told My Paper on Tuesday that his style icon is none other than the band's trendiest member - Key.Onew, 23, said: "He's very interested in fashion. He knows everything when we speak to him about fashion or beauty products." Onew wasn't exaggerating.

When My Paper asked who Key's style icons are, the 21-year-old pondered over it thoughtfully before rattling off names like Madonna, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson.

And at the press event on Tuesday, Onew, Key, Jonghyun, 23, and Taemin, 20, were impeccably dressed. Their candy-coloured blazers matched, and they all sported well-coiffed hairdos.

Member Minho, 21, was not present as he had filming commitments in South Korea.

The popular boy band was in town to perform for 3,500 fans at the Etude Pink Play Party at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre.
