What do you get when you give the boys of SHINee a lot of string and their typical wardrobe? You get the latest photo spread for the January 2010 issue of Dazed & Confused Korea, that’s what!

For the spread, the boys donned on some brightly colored face paint and a relatively tame wardrobe, at least in comparison to previous shoots. There seems to be quite a lot of string on the set as well, which the boys utilize to make puppets out of their suit jackets.

Eventually, the string is used to make puppets out of the boys and immediately my thoughts went straight back to another popular boy band, N’SYNC. Yes, I went there. That portion of the shoot was oddly reminiscent of their smash hit Bye Bye Bye, or it might just be me. Only two pictures from the spread have been released so far, so fans will have to wait until the 22nd to view the whole thing. A BTS video has been released along with the photos, allowing fans to get an idea of what the rest of the spread will look like.
