SHINee is headlining KCON LA for the first time this Saturday! I'm sure these young veterans will have plenty of sound advice for the rookies as they take the stage alongside them. Even though we won't be able to hear all the backstage conversations, we can still witness the many talents SHINee has perfected over the past eight years. ShaWols love their singing, dancing and sense of humor. Now, it's time to sit back and be blown away by their acting skills. While you wait for one of the most anticipated weekends to get here, watch these six productions featuring SHINee that are sure to get you pumped up to see them live. 

1. Because Its The First Time

Five years after his acting debut in the KBS special PianistChoi Min Ho returned to TV viewers as college student Yoon Tae Oh in this hilarious, short series. The 24-year-old's acting has greatly improved since his early days, and I was very impressed by his performance. Plus, I think the first ONStyle drama series was adorable!

2. Descendants of the Sun 

DOTS wasn't Onew's first acting job, but it is the very first time the world took notice of his remarkable talent in a K-drama. In addition to his experience in live theatre, the 26-year-old idol had his first brush with a leading TV role in the 2013 JTBC sitcom Welcome to Royal Villa. Nonetheless, audiences loved his portrayal of doctor Lee Chi Hoon in the most popular K-drama of 2016.

3. We Got Married - Global Edition Season 2

Key is one of my favorite WGM husbands! His chemistry with Japanese model Yagi Arisa was heartwarming and hilarious all at the same time. I didn't miss a week of their on-screen marriage, and I wish they would do a reunion program in the future. This season is a must-see!

4. To the Beautiful You

We all miss that magical chemistry between Min Ho and Sulli. He played frustrated athlete Kang Tae Joon who gets encouragement from surprise transfer student Gu Jae Hee (Sulli). You also get a glimpse of DOTS actress Kim Ji Won in one of her earlier roles.

5. I AM

SHINee joined their SM Entertainment family to take viewers behind the scenes of their high-profile careers. ShaWols got a glimpse of their early years in K-Pop and true personalities. I waited for years to see this film, and it did not disappoint!

6. Dating Agency: Cyrano

Taemin hasn't had much acting experience since his 2008 debut, but his brief role as pop star Ray in this series was unforgettable. You can watch him get the dating agency's help to win the heart of his crush in episodes 3-5.
