SHINee’s Taemin, who made a solo comeback, recently held a showcase for his fourth mini album, Guilty, in Seoul. He said, “I debuted as a student, but I am now in my thirties. Now, the people who love me have become a part of my life.”
He continued, “Sometimes when I hear people say things like, ‘I grew up watching Taemin since my school days,’ I feel a sense of pride and accomplishment that I was sharing memories with many people through music.”
He also revealed how he maintains his young boy charm.
This may be a strange answer, but they say aging accelerates when insulin levels rise. So, I’m trying to maintain an empty stomach without eating often. I try not to expose myself to a lot of UV rays, and I apply sunscreen well.
He added, “I want to maintain my boyish appearance until I’m 47! It’s a joke. I probably won’t have much time left, but I still want to embrace boyish and masculine images for about three more years. I think I will need to receive help from the medical field and receive treatment.”
Netizens who saw this reacted to his answer regarding maintaining his youth.
- “Insulin lolol but I also keep track of how long I keep my stomach empty..this is a good habit.”
- “He did age a bit..I thought he would be a baby forever.”
- “Why is until 47 lolol.”
- “Taemin you are forever our maknae (youngest member).”
- “His answer is so cute.”
- “He is older than me but he still feels like 16 year old Taemin..always the baby.”
Regarding the fact that he always hears the phrase, “SHINee has returned from a boy to a man,” he stated, “It’s still okay now, but when we start to get wrinkles and have trouble keeping our body in check, we might become a laughingstock.”
On the other hand, Taemin’s new album includes the title song, “Guilty” along with b-side tracks for a total of six songs. Check out the official music video below!
