He’s currently the only one from SHINee that’s active on entertainment industry because three members of SHINee are currently carrying out their mandatory military service. When fans asked about his fellow members recently, he said “I haven’t talked to the members recently… At 1st moment, I was a little worried (about the members) so I sent many messages. But I don’t want them to get mad at me so I don’t do it as much as before“. Fans also asked what birthday gift that he wants and he said that he just wants that the members come back really soon.
Tae Min was born on July 18, 1993, and he just celebrated his birthday last month. He celebrated his birthday a little ahead of the day, on his Japan concert tour “Taemin Arena Tour 2019”, July 14, 2019. Shawols (SHINee’s fandom name) and his dancers gave him a surprise.
