International fans of SHINee were more then delighted when they heard the great news and praise that came from former President Barack Obama during a speech he gave at the '8th Asian Leadership Conference' held in Seoul back in July of this year.

On the September 13th episode of SBS' 'One Night of Entertainment,' interviewer Kim So Hee met with SHINee's Minho in order to discuss the memorable moment. SHINee's Minho not only expressed his honest reaction but the true opinions of his fellow members as well.

Kim So Hee started off by saying, "Recently, a special person talked about SHINee,"  which had Minho instantly reply saying, "Yes, former US President Obama talked about SHINee!" When she further asked Minho how he felt after hearing Barack Obama stating that U.S. fans are learning more about Korean language and culture because of the group, this is what Minho had to say.

"We [SHINee] didn't really believe the news until we finally saw the clip," describing how the members were surprised. Kim So Hee said, "To know that you guys even like hamburgers." Minho replied, "I know. Whenever we visit America, there is one particular hamburger place (In-N-Out) in the LA area that we go to, we just have to go there and eat their burgers. And I would like to say on behalf of SHINee, we are so thankful that he also happened to know that fact as well." Perhaps President Obama is a fan of SHINee and K-Pop himself?
