One fan wrote in all caps, "IF YOU THINK IM GONNA BE SCREAMING ABOUT SHINEE’S [COME]BACK 2021 FOR THE REST OF THE DAY YOU ARE RIGHT."

As some fans have also pointed out, it has been a long wait since we've gotten new SHINee music. For Japanese fans, the group released their latest Japanese studio album 'Five' back in January 2017. The complete trilogy of EPS for the Korean album 'The Story of Light' arrived in 2018. Additionally, 'The Story of Light EP.3' is the last Shinee release to feature late member Jonghyun following his death.
Since then, each of the boys found success in their own solo ventures and collectively in the music industry, but on a similar note to the aforementioned fans, 2021 is looking bright for K-pop as SHINee gears up for their comeback and we can't wait to see what they are cooking.
