SHINee's Key revealed why he doesn't use his birth name to promote as an actor like many idol stars tend to do.

At the press conference for the upcoming MBC drama 'Bleak Night', Key shared, "At first, my agency asked me what I wanted to do about my name. Although a lot of people change their names, I thought I wanted to bring everything I've done as SHINee's Key with me."

He continued, "Everything I've worked on is as SHINee's Key, so I didn't think I had to change that. People who call me Kibum call me Kibum anyway. I didn't feel it meant a lot to change it, and I thought it would be better to use a name that many people know me by."

'Bleak Night' premieres on May 22 KST. Do you plan on watching?

Such a cutie pie!! :)

I find it so cute that he does that. Even Jonghyun introduces himself as "SHINee's Jonghyun" when he promotes solo, whereas Taeyeon, for example, just introduces herself as Taeyeon (no hate to Taeyeon though i love her <3). It just shows how much the boys love being in SHINee and how thankful they are because SHINee has made them successful.

I guess you could say his name is....key...to his career ;-) (I apologize for the terrible pun. Please don't eat me!)

This is what I love about SHINee whilst some idols from other groups are so keen to do something on their own and break away from the group name, the SHINee members are always proud to be part of SHINee and always see themselves as members of SHINee first before anything else <3
