Name of fanclub: SHINee Mexico Forum (SMF)
Year formed: June 2009
What is your role in this fanclub (what position)?: In appreciation to their effort, I would love to mention the whole team that has formed this family, because without the support all of them give, SMF would not be here. Sandra Tapia (President/Leader), Sandra Medina (Vice president), Izebel Galicia (Founder), Updaters Team, Design Team, Video Editing Team and State Leaders. Meet them all here: www.shineemexico.com/t6-shinee-mexico-forum-staff
Was there any special reason that led you to form this club/gave you the idea to form this club?: The founder formed the fanclub due to to the need of having space to spread the information in Spanish about SHINee, support & love the boyband, and meet with the fans of our country.

What do you like about SHINee?: “Everything” is an honest answer. However if we had to make a list, it would be definitely their brightness, passion and hard work. We like that they see us as their equals. There is no perfection, but if something or someone comes close to it, SHINee certainly is!
Have you ever met the group/members of the group?: The staff has not yet had the chance to meet them in person. However we were able to see them at SHINee World Concert III in Mexico at the Arena Ciudad de Mexico on April 04, 2014. It was SHINee’s first Latin American concert. The best dream come true.
What events does your fanclub do?:Our achievements have been supportive events such as anniversary/charity/films/plays/concert projects. We also do group purchases (physical or digital albums, official goods or fanmade). Usually we collaborate with Latin American or international projects. On the other hand, we make meetings throughout the country to do recreational activities.
How do you communicate with other members in your fanclub? (FB group, Line, Kakao, etc): Facebook, through our fanpage (www.facebook.com/SHINeeMexicoForum) or the fangroup: (www.facebook.com/groups/SHINeeMexicoForum)
Proximity of members (all from same country/city, etc)?: We started with all the members from a same country. But now we reach different populations of the world since we have been here for a long long time in Mexico, thanks to all the supportive SHINee World.
What message would you like to give to SHINee fans around the world?: Stop wishing, start making! SHINee World is an amazing fandom; it does not matter the distance, the time or where we come from. When we are with SHINee, we are the brightest lights in the universe, and we can make every wish come true.
