Since SHINee‘s maknae Taemin was discharged from his military service back in April, fans have been eager for the talented artist to make his long-awaited comeback to the K-Pop industry.
And so, when the announcement came that he would be releasing a new mini-album, Guilty, on October 30, the excitement among fans was evident!
In the last few days leading up to the new release, Taemin has been sharing teaser images and videos that has anticipation growing. The most recent teaser photos give off an aesthetic of youth and nostalgia, with Taemin looking much younger than he is in a school boy-esque outfit.
There’s a certain eeriness about the images too, though, in the color grading and the mysterious injuries on Taemin’s leg.
In gifs taken from the most recent teaser video for Guilty, that blend of whimsy and eeriness becomes more evident, giving almost a cult-like vibe.
The music in the teaser video itself continues to add to the effect, which you can watch below.
Here’s how netizens are reacting to the intriguing and exciting teasers on a forum post about them.
Make sure not to miss Guilty when it comes out on October 30!
