K-pop boy band SHINee's Taemin enlisted himself in the military on Monday, May 31 for his mandatory military service. As the K-pop band member left for the Army Training Centre in South Korea to get his basic military training, fans and followers of the K-pop star started showering him with love and blessings on the Internet with the #DearMyTaemin trending on Twitter.
According to Soompi, Taemin entered Korea Army Training Center in Nonsan, South Chungcheong Province on May 31 wherein he will receive training to serve in the military band. The K-pop singer had to get a haircut before entering the academy as per the military rules. SHINee's member Key shared a picture of the group with Taemin with the caption "return safely."
Another SHINee member Minho posted a selfie of himself and Taemin while they were in the car on their way to the military academy and shared that he will always be by his side.
SHINee's Taemin is the last member of the K-pop band to enlist into the military. Last year, the other three members Onew, Minho, and Key were discharged from their mandatory military duties and they made their comeback as a group in February with the song Don’t Call Me. Before Taemin's military enlistment, the singer released his solo album titled Advice, earlier in May. Check out the video of Taemin's enlistment
