[News] Onew and Jonghyun want to see "Moosherlock"!

Posted: 27 Mar 2012 08:07 AM PDT

There's a lot of anticipation for announcer Jeon Hyunmoo's parody of SHINee's "Sherlock" dance. He has received positive feedback for his hilarious interpretations of "Juliette" and "Lucifer" and he was even given the nickname Moocifer. Many people have high expectations of his performance.

Jeon Hyunmoo commented that he has been watching the "Sherlock" choreography very closely. He has not started practicing the actual dance as of now. SHINee's dances are very precise and detailed that it'd be hard for idol groups to copy, so Jeon Hyunmoo is burdened by all the expectations. He shared that "Yesterday(26th), Onew called me. He asked when he could see "Sherlock"." and "Jonghyun is definitely going crazy, saying that he wants to see my dance." Jonghyun actually tweeted on the 25th about how he is looking forward to Jeon Hyunmoo's version.

Jeon Hyunmoo plans on showing a performance different from his "Juliette" and "Lucifer" ones. He stated, "Since I'm already the 6th member of SHINee, I will properly show everyone "Moosherlock"." Jeon Hyunmoo learned "Juliette" and "Lucifer" from an academy in Hongdae, but he will learn "Sherlock" at an SM Entertainment practice room and will be taught by an SME choreographer. (Of course the lesson is free!)

Jeon Hyunmoo wants to show his "Moosherlock" soon but he is still contemplating on where to perform it. If he cannot find a stage to perform, he says he will at least perform it on "Qualifications of a Man".
