And last but not least, the final member of the hotly anticipated SuperM group is 26-year-old Taemin, who has been in the industry the longest, joining SHINee at 14.

SHINee has won the Seoul Music Awards' popularity category twice.

Speaking to Billboard magazine, Taemin said "I don't want to compare SuperM to any of the other groups...but if I had to describe [what] sets us apart, it's the performance element.

It's not just dance, but includes vocals and rapping, where each member can showcase his ability and shine in a different way, that maybe they can't in other groups."
