Onew, Minho and Taemin of SHINee became professional ASMR artists for a day as a part of a broadcast hosted while lying down.

ASMR stands for autonomous sensory meridian response. It is often defined as a pleasant feeling triggered by sounds. The trio attempted to create soothing sounds using floral foam to help fans get to sleep.

“This is apparently the hottest ASMR sound at the moment,” said Minho, cutting foam with a plastic knife.

However, as Taemin quickly informed him that the fans weren’t too fond of the sound, Minho quickly gave up, saying, “They don’t like it? Oh. Then let’s try something else.”

“That ASMR will never let you sleep,” said one fan, laughing. “I hate ASMR but I love them so much. Please end my suffering,” said another.

Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts. The app is available for Android and iOS. For more information, visit http://www.vlive.tv.
