Happy #5HINeeversary!I only got into kpop last year, and I only became a Shawol right before the Sherlock era began, but even comparing you five from last year to now, I can see such drastic changes within all of you. Never in my life did I think that I would constantly be up until 5AM every night just to watch five men dance and sing around on stage in elaborately flamboyant outfits (some of which leave me deeply questioning the cordi-noona’s sense of style), and yet here I am. Looking back to your debut, it’s so strange for me to watch interviews when you were all so new and young, and had yet to even discover your personalities. I feel like I’ve been with you five since the very beginning, despite the fact that I’m still a relatively ‘new’ fan. That being said; words cannot express how proud I am of you five; how far you’ve come, how successful you’ve been, and how you’ve grown not only in your performing abilities, but as a group and as individuals. No matter what is thrown at you boys, you always find a way to tackle and resolve any issue or ‘scandal’ maturely and professionally. I can’t wait to spend many more anniversaries with you as the years pass, and to keep watching you all grow. Happy 5th anniversary, SHINee!

Many adults are put off when youngsters pose scientific questions. Children ask why the sun is yellow, or what a dream is, or how deep you can dig a hole, or when is the world’s birthday, or why we have toes. Too many teachers and parents answer with irritation or ridicule, or quickly move on to something else. Why adults should pretend to omniscience before a five-year-old, I can’t for the life of me understand. What’s wrong with admitting that you don’t know? Children soon recognize that somehow this kind of question annoys many adults. A few more experiences like this, and another child has been lost to science.
There are many better responses. If we have an idea of the answer, we could try to explain. If we don’t, we could go to the encyclopedia or the library. Or we might say to the child: “I don’t know the answer. Maybe no one knows. Maybe when you grow up, you’ll be the first to find out.”"
