Taemin was the only member that was left to enlist. Taemin’s fans and SHINee’s fans knew they had to bid goodbye to their idol. However, they were still given a lot to take from Taemin after his appearance in the SM Entertainment supergroup, SuperM. Taemin enlisted for the mandatory military service as a member of the military band as SHINee members Onew, Key and Minho bid farewell.
However, the idol did not leave his fans high and dry as he was always sending messages for his fans. He also sent pictures from the military and shared them on social media.
