[Star of the Week] SHINee Minho and His ‘Fighting’ Spirit
There’s one in every group, and in SHINee, the most competitive member is Minho.
Ever since his debut, Minho has had that burning passion in his eyes where he can’t let a simple game go without it becoming a fierce competition, and of course, unless it was a rare occasion, Minho would come out as the winner.
So admiring his ‘fighting’ sprit, we take a look at some of Minho’s fervor as shown in a number of shows.
Idol Athletics Championship
When MBC’s Idol Athletics Championship first began, the question of how successful the program would be came up.
We truly believe that Minho was one of the few stars who made the program work because of his fierce competitiveness.
Ever since the show began in 2010, SHINee has appeared numerous times, and each time, Minho has always come back with a medal or two. Whether it was the 110 m hurdles or high jump, Minho was almost always seen at the starting line at final round.
But of course, Minho is not perfect and he can make mistakes, so there were times when he failed to get the gold, but it’s okay, because we loved seeing his adorable reactions, which were mixed in with disappointment and embarrassment.
There, there. Everything will be all right.
If Shinhwa’s Junjin ruled back in the days, SHINee’s Minho is this generation’s Dream Team ace.
With his amazing Olympian-like abilities, Minho was always above par and extraordinary performances of sports on KBS’ Dream Team, many time bringing victory to his team.
When Junjin the Troll Interferes with Minho’s Competitiveness
But Minho’s competiveness doesn’t just come out with sports.
Eager and determined to be the best at everything, Minho even takes variety games seriously, and it clearly showed when SHINee appeared as guests on jTBC’s Shinhwa Broadcast.
Finding his junior so adorable, Shinhwa’s Junjin pushed all of Minho’s buttons, teasing him in all way possible during each game.
Even Taemin found the teasing entertaining and joined Junjin in making Minho miserable (in a humorous way) while the two teams competed against each other.
Minho, Why So Serious?.
Just kidding. We love your fighting spirit.
