After almost two weeks of no updates, SHINee's Taemin's military debut has surfaced on the internet and fans have taken to social media sites to celebrate Taemin's military era. The 27-year-old 'Advice' crooner has sent his first message from the camp looking stunning in his military bald-cut hair.
Reportedly, the 'Move' crooner is currently posted at the 26th regiment as a soldier and he will be serving in the mandatory military for 518 days. While fans will have to wait till October 2022 to welcome the "Idol's Idol", Shawols are taking this as an opportunity to get better at streaming and amp up the singer's presence for a brighter start to Taemin's post-military singing career.
Taemin's first message from the military
In Taemin's military debut picture, the K-pop artiste donned a casual black tee and black shorts matching with his regiment mates with a placard. The group posed with a series of placards that formed a message for their family where they said, "Our parents, we love you!" Taemin fans took it to Twitter to share hilarious memes with the photo while urging fans to stream the 'Criminal' crooners last album 'Advice.'
A fan said, "taemin center cause where else would he belong!" referring to the fact that Taemin was found at the center of the gang. Another Taemin enthusiast noted, "At #streamfortaemin, we believe that #Taemin's hiatus is an opportunity for us fans to recharge and build something together. A stronger fanbase. A streaming culture. Instead of him just being away, we'd like to think of it as Taemin Military Era!" Another fan stated facts saying, "Today is Taemin's day Everyday is Taemin's day!"
