[Time Capsule] SHINee – Why So Serious?

For this week’s Time Capsule I wanted to go back to 2013 with the release of the album ‘Chapter 2. ‘Why So Serious?-The Misconceptions of Me’. Jonghyun wasn’t present at the time of filming because he had been in a car accident where he damaged his nose and SM didn’t wait to record.

If you’ve ever wondered why the phrase ‘why so serious’ is so popular in K-pop lyrics, this might be one of the reasons, alongside the ever popular Joker character from the ‘Batman’ series.

Regardless, this is a bop and remains a bop even ten years later. Take a look below!

Here’s a version with Jonghyun.
