After originally starting his military service on May 31, 2021, the beloved maknae is set to complete his time there on April 4. Originally a member of the military band, Taemin transferred to public service in January 2022 due to symptoms of depression and anxiety.

Fans were understandably concerned for Taemin after hearing this news, and it made everyone even more impatient for the SHINee member to complete his service. So with only a few days left until that happens, not only are fans celebrating, but Taemin himself took to social media in preparation!

In the Twitter post on SHINee’s official account, Taemin shared two photos: One of himself with his pet cat, Kkoong, and the other with him cutely booping the kitty’s nose.
