The first photoshoot featured Taemin in a classic black-and-white style. The second showcased him in color, showing his individuality and iconic fashion sense.





Now, fellow labelmate, choreographer and dancer Kany, who has worked with SHINee on “HARD” and more, welcomed Taemin by retweeting BPM Entertainment’s announcement. She recently signed with the agency herself.

While Shawols have been hesitant regarding BPM Entertainment, some are hopeful, seeing as how much has been done for Taemin as soon as his contract was signed.

We wish Taemin a bright future!
