Shinee member, SuperM member and solo artist Taemin began mandatory military service in May. Soon there were rumours that he was having problems with other soldiers allegedly trying to snap pictures of him at all times and staring at him in the shower. The situation allegedly got so bad that the army allegedly opened a very rare exception so that he could shower at a different time from the other soldiers.
Shortly after that the army produced a promotional video of military life with Taemin, smiling and saying how great military life was, praising the food, etc.
Now it has been confirmed that Taemin has been suffering from worsening depression and panic disorder and will be unable to continue serving in his current post in Military Band, being transferred to an auxiliary corps as a public servant.
wishing Taemin strength and recovery.
