Key confessed about the slump period he experienced when he first debuted. 

On a talk show, 'As You Say,' aired on October 12, SHINee's Key was captured having a genuine, heart-to-heart, conversation with a crowd of people, even spilling some tears.

Key started off, "Before I begin to talk, I want to say that I am 26 years old, and I know that I am too young to give any advice to others on how to live. I will tell a short story, and I hope you guys will listen.


"One reporter said to us that SHINee is like a group of swans, that we seem to have natural-born elegance. I came home and thought about it carefully, but I realized that I don't have anything 'natural-born.' So I considered which bird I am like the most and concluded that I am like a chicken."

Key confessed, "Since I was little, I wanted to become a singer, and I wanted to convince my parents' support before it's too late. They opposed at first, but eventually caved in...I kept getting rejected at auditions then finally made it at an audition that was 8000:1 passing ratio. I came an trainee at age 15 and debuted at age 18; I thought I was a swan at the time. But when I finally debuted, reality hit me. Among SHINee members, I always ranked 5th place [last] in search engines." 

He explained, "I started to doubt myself...I found myself as a chicken among many swans. I had to admit that I had no competitive edge." 

Aaawww...It's okay, Key! You are a swan now. We are happy that he got over the slump period and became a star!

    Well since recently allpop is running by #sm mafia it's totally understundable the big shade thrown on Key in every artical ! ...wait they not called articals cause no facts, truth , or professionality in it they called # sm mafia media play stories ! Fact no1: Key cries cause his sweet heart was touches by a guest sad story ...the boy heart is so kind and soft <3Fact no2: he talked about the ranking in debute days that mean 9 years ago !!! not now for sure! Fact no3: Key's popularity is unquestionable *-* always on top the eyes catchet , the special color of shinee , the fire dancer , amazing unique vocal , outstanding rapper , phenomenal actor ( musicals,theater , tv ) and currently he is the most hot topic in S.Korean for his acting skills and he even gave shinee and other members big promotion through his popularity :)The only wrong thing is #sm mafia who are hating on Key everywhwere and spreading lies !!

    The thing is that in SHINee Key is like second best in almost everything, never at the bottom! He's 2 best in dance, 2 best in rap, 2-3 best in singing....Key is the one in SHINee that can fill every role! He's not 5 in anything, maybe some thinks in looks but that is different for everyone, I for ecample dont think so. When it comes to talent I think Minho gets more hate, he's that member thats told he just made it because of his looks.... But no matter what I think SHINee is so hardworking and you can notice how much they have improved. Minho's dancing and rapping is much better, Taemin and his vocals etc... So even if they are number 5 in something in SHINee they would still be number one in aother group, because the talent of each member is so strong at this point.
