SHINee‘s Taemin just made the surprise announcement that he will be enlisting in the military on May 31, 2021.
Taemin held a live broadcast earlier in the night and made the announcement while talking to his fans.
There’s only a bit over one month left and I don’t want to spend it feeling depressed. I wanted to let you all know first, coming from me.
On May 2, I will hold a ‘Beyond Live’ concert. I think my solo album will come out in the second or third week of May. The schedule isn’t confirmed, but I think I will be able to show you one last colorful performance before I enlist.
I will be on hiatus [as an idol] starting on May 31.
SHINee fans have also already discovered that Taemin may have applied to the military band and was accepted on April 1.

Taemin will be the final member of SHINee to enlist in the military. Onew, Key, and Minho have all completed their military duties.
