2021.06.07 페이스북 트위터

Taemin enters the training center on the 31st, receives basic military training, and begins his military service in the army band. Prior to this, SM Entertainment, Taemin's agency, said, "Taemin applied to the army band and received a final acceptance notice from the Military Manpower Administration, and he plans to enlist quietly without any special events on the day of enlistment."

Taemin mentioned his enlistment directly to fans through Naver V Live. In the broadcast, Taemin said, "I started running to debut as a singer in middle school when I was 13 and now I'm 29. I've been working hard on my own for 16 years, but in a way, many things have happened, and I'm so thankful that I've received so much love. It's unfortunate and upsetting, but it feels like I'm looking back on my first act and the past."

"Thanks to you, I think I have become a very special person. I am worried, scared, anxious, and lonely at times, but looking back, I am happy. It feels like a lot of things really happened." I also have the thought that I will become more mature. I feel sad because I’ve been active for so long", he added. 

Taemin, who will enlist on the 31st, will be discharged from the military on November 30, 2022.
