This is one of SHINee’s old stories:
Take a look at Taemin’s sack in these pictures.
After they debuted,
Taemin was seen carrying the bag attached with an elephant doll and some small dolls.
He used to have candies in the bag and gives them to their fans and noonas.
On each lollipop is attached a message that says “Please love SHINee’s ‘Replay’”.
Because he was always holding it in his arms, some people wondered what the bag was for.
Whenever asked, he used to say “Ah~ This bag is decorated by Key Hyung.”
Many people might already know this story.
There was a lot of lollipops with the promotional-tags given out by him,
so they must had made this small project together.
I think Taemin is the representative of SHINee and he was supported by the rest of the members.
SM couldn’t made it so SHINee must have work on it themselves.
This method of promotion was definitely their own idea.
They never forget their original intention (now, they can’t act like that anymore because they are famous to be able to face fans one by one).
They are always modest by nature and even know how to repay their fans.
That’s why I can’t stop loving SHINee.
