"Everybody" is a K-Pop song of complextro-dubstep music genre performed by the South Korean contemporary R&B idol group Shinee. Written by Cho Yoonkyung,[3] two versions of "Everybody" exist: the original Korean-language version, which served as one of the two lead singles for the promotional cycle for the group's fifth Korean EP Everybody (2013), other one being "Symptoms", and a Japanese-language version, which was included as one of the three tracks on their ninth Japanese CD single 3 2 1 (2013).[4] The Korean version of "Everybody" was made available for download on October 14, 2013 under the record label of S.M. Entertainment and distributing label of EMI Music.[5]

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on October 9, 2013.[6] The video showcased the boys in an air force military concept, similar to the navy concept of their label mates Girls' Generation's "Genie" era. It was directed by Jang Jae-hyuk, who stated that various techniques and equipment like the steadicam, technocrane and camera matrix, were used to film the music video.[7] The choreography of the song was produced by Tony Testa.[8] The agency's resident choreographer Gregory Hwang also co-produced the dance moves.[9]

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard K-Town columnist Jeff Benjamin wrote "while finding a delicous balance of hyperactive EDM and pop stylings is commendable, the most impressive point of Shinee's "Everybody" comeback is the choreography - some of 2013's best".[10]

Live performances[edit]

The first live performance of "Everybody" was included in the set-list of Shinee Comeback Special at Gangnam Hallyu Festival on October 6, 2013, in Samseong-dong, Seoul. The performances were streamed on SM Town's YouTube channel.[11] The first broadcast live performance, however, was through M.net's music show M! Countdown on October 10. 2013.[12] This was followed by performances at KBS Music Bank on October 11,[13] at MBC Show! Music Core on October 12, at SBS The Music Trend (Inkigayo) on October 13,[14] and at MBC Music Show Champion on October 16, 2013.

Japanese version[edit]

The Japanese version was included as one of the three tracks on their 9th Japanese CD single "3 2 1" which was released on December 4, 2013 under the distributing label of Universal Music Japan.[15]
