Shinee is known for their fashion style, initially created by designer Ha Sang-beg (하상백), which features high-top sneakers, skinny jeans, and colorful sweaters. Their style has created a fashion trend amongst students which the media dubbed the "Shinee Trend". The groups "boyish charm" was an important factor in Shinee gaining fans. With the release of 2009, Year of Us, Shinee's style became more mature, though still contained Shinee's unique image. Furthermore, instead of working with famous artists and photographers, SM Entertainment's Visual and Art Directing department usually works with up-and-coming talents with new ideas for Shinee's concepts. When Shinee debuted in 2008 with "Replay", it was not only their music which gained attention but also their colorful style—but even four years later, in 2012, Shinee maintained their colorful concept for Sherlock. Their designer, Ha Sang-beg, stated in an interview with the Korean Times: "Much has evolved over the years, since I change their styles to reflect their music. The feel from their debut single still exists, mixing the overground [sic] with the underground, haute couture with street fashion ... but it is very modern, like Shinee."
Vocals and Dance
According to the media, Shinee are considered as one of the best live vocalists and dancers in Korean pop known for their good vocal performances and complex choreographies (dubbed CD-Nee as a reference to their album audio-like performance vocals) but also for a unique kind of music that is quite different from usual K-pop. At S.M. Entertainment’s showcase in New York in October 2011, Jon Caramanica of the New York Times summarized them as "the most ambitious" of the evening and also complimented the group's strong vocal performance. Furthermore, he stated: "Their music, especially Replay, Ring Ding Dong and Juliette, felt the riskiest, even if it only slightly tweaked that polyglot Pop formula".
Musical style and themes
The predominant musical genre of the group is contemporary R&B. The group's early singles such as "Get Down" and "Jo Jo" explore other musical styles such as hip-hop and dance. Shinee's third album which is devided into two parts is significantly influenced by funk rock, electronic music and rock. Billboard columnist Jeff Benjamin compared Shinee's songs like "Punch Drunk Love" and "Aside" to the sounds of Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, while tracks like "Beautiful" and "Runaway" combine "unique electronic production elements over sugary boy band harmonies to create year-round pop music".
Shinee as a group is known for their experimental sound and different genres with every new release like the group's fifth extended play Everybody which title song is classified under the complextro genre. Jakob Dorof of Tiny Mix Tapes stated that "Everybody is proof positive that, even in a culture industry designed to minimize the role of real musicianship, talent will find its way to the top." He also remarked that "Close the Door" highlights the experimental and versatile nature of Shinee's music which frequently charts into unfamiliar territories.
With the release of their fourth Korean album Odd Shinee return to their old sound while experimenting with new genres like deep house. Alexis Hodoyan-Gastelum of MTV IGGY praised the title song "View", describing it as a great, laid back summer jam even though "the song fools us into thinking it's an uptempo ballad before reaching its techno peak at the chorus." Jeff Benjamin on the other hand praised "Odd Eye", which is written and composed by member Jonghyun, Benjamin states the groups "return to the R&B side of SHINee with feathery vocals, tight harmonies and member Onew's falsetto howls acting a centerpiece to this grooving opener" but he also adds "despite initially debuting with a R&B sound, SHINee is arguably most exciting when experimenting".
Early in their career, Shinee were endorsers for several brands, such as the cosmetic brand Nana's B and the sports brand Reebok. Later, they endorsed the clothing brand Maypole as well as the popular Korean cosmetic brands Etude House and The Saem. In 2012, Etude House’s Lash Pump 3-Step Volume-Cara, a PC-based and mobile micro-site featuring "doll eyelashes" main model Sandara Park and Shinee—appearing as puppets—was awarded first place for the Movile Marketing and Product Promotions category at the 9th Web Award Korea. The group was also part of the popular Korean comic The Blade of the Phantom Master and then-new webtoon series ENT. Furthermore, the group endorsed the sports brand Skechers and collaborated with Naver and Skechers for t-shirts and caps designed by the group members. Overall, Shinee are models with influence over consumers, as products featuring the Shinee label can increase the revenue of companies. For example, "Shinee's Sparking Water", a simple carbonated bottled water which is sold by eMart, the supermarket chain business of Shinsegae: over the one-month period after debut, the products boasted a combined sales of 67 million won.
On August 9, 2011, Shinee and their label mates f(x) and Girls' Generation, took part in an effort to help African children. The groups were joined by the United Nation's Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, in the "Help African Children" project co-organized by the Korean Red Cross Society and the Korean UNICEF committee.
To promote tourism business in Korea Shinee were chosen as honorary ambassadors for Seoul's Gangnam district in February 2014. One year later in February 2015 the group became ambassadors of Ministry of Personnel Management to promote Korean music, dance and fashion. Their tasks as ambassadors included performing at events around the world to encourage cultural exchanges between the nations. In 2016, Shinee's Minho was part of UNICEFs #IMAGINE campaign which was first introduced in November 2014 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the United Nation's Convention on the Rights of the Child. The UNICEF executive director, Anthony Lake explained the project compels viewers to "imagine a better world for children" and make that vision a reality.
