YOU SHAWOLS COULDN’T STAY AWAY FOR TOO LONG, COULD YOU?
I’ve said before that Lee Taemin has the greasiest ways to climb up your bias list, and I shall say it again: Lee Taemin is extremely dangerous. Stay away from this little fucker because you may think that he’s just a twirling pixie fairy, dancing around fields of white lillies, but let me tell you right now, Lee Taemin will end you.
Oh god, I’m going to die.
Let’s start small. At the beginning, you flail over the very sight of Lee Taemin because he looks like an overgrown toddler
(and occasionally acts like one, too)
OOPS MY FINGER SLIPPEDlet me try that again
THAT’S MORE LIKE IT
my god he looks like he’s 9
Probably the first thing that I thought about Taemin was
oh my god what a beautiful mouth“Oh, he’s so cute!” but cute wouldn’t actually be the right word to use, would it? Cute? Is this cute?
is this cute?
was this iconic moment in SHINee history “CUTE”?!
okay maybe he has moments
fine he definitely has moments
Even if I tried to describe Taemin’s visual as cute, it really wouldn’t work, I mean there are different stages of cute in the trajectory of Taemin’s idol life
so cute I could die
i want to smother myself with those bedsheets
STOP IT cute
His appeal at the beginning of his career was the cute boy with the thin legs that could dance like a boss, but this quickly snowballed into something else entirely because *gasp* you would never believe it but
Lee Taemin-nie became LEE TAEMAN JUST LOOK HERE
like suddenly he’s not
and you’re wondering if he was always this sexy…THE ANSWER IS YES. YES, TAEMIN WAS A TICKING TIME BOMB. And it all came for THIS MOMENT
i literally have no words
I CANNOT ANYTHING WHAT
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves and think that Taemin became some sort of sex machine. Ladies and gentlemen, the baby in him still persists, look him two seconds after getting off stage for god’s sake Taemin you’re such a girl
Real talk now. Taemin may be piping hot and gorgeous
and can pull off blonde better than ANY OTHER IDOL EVERbut that’s not what I’m here to say. I’m here to say that Lee Taemin is the most hardworking idol I’ve come across so far.
He’s not called the golden maknae because he’s a pro at aegyo (though this is true). He’s called the golden maknae because he is an inspiration to maknaes in other idol groups and to performers and aspiring artists all over the world. Taemin is the one person that worked hardest at making his dream of becoming a singer come true. He was told that as an idol he’d “better stick to dancing” and forget about singing because he was tone-deaf and could not carry a note. Instead of storming out or following obediently, Taemin worked ten times as hard to train his voice (because, in case you didn’t know, singing is a learned skill, not an innate one), and he rose to such heights that he was allowed his own solo album. That is true hard work. That is a true inspiration. This is what inspires his members to love him so irrationally, because watching him climb literal mountains of obstacles is awe-inspiring. Anyone would be lucky to stand beside him, and I think his members never forget to appreciate how far Taemin has come, since being 14, and blossoming into their brother, their co-worker and their friend. I think that Taemin is the kind of person that gives his all in everything, every little thing about his life is important (which is why I think he’s so great about his privacy) and that he works as hard in his professional life as he does in his personal one.
Taemin’s dancing is something out of a movie. When you watch him dance, you can see that there is a lot of precision, but there is so much of Taemin in it that you can’t help but feel that even if all of SHINee are dancing the same choreography, there is something about Taemin that is different. There is something more that he brings to the table, something that you can’t quite put your finger on, but that you’re sure is what makes your eyes linger on him for a little longer, like sunflowers flocking to always be looking to their sun, and the sun gladly looking back. That something about Taemin makes your heart swell with pride as you watch him dance or hear him sing.
Speaking of singing, let’s talk about that. Taemin’s voice is almost never a topic of conversation, it’s always about how well he can dance. In SHINee, everyone has a singular quality that makes them stand out, and depending on a person’s personal taste, the voices that stand out the most vary. As you all know I have a ridiculous weakness for Onew, but Taemin’s voice is something that needs to be mentioned in this post. It is the kind of voice that reminds you of sweets and cotton candy, but it also has the thickness to remind you of something else entirely, like the kind of whispers you want to hear at night after the rest of the world has gone off to slumberland. There is something about Taemin’s vowels that just stand out to me, they sound so strong and so mature and so clean, and there is something about his high notes, that although they’re not very risky, carry so much strength without belting. Taemin’s voice is basically like velvet to my ears, and it would be a lie to say that you haven’t shivered at hearing his voice at least once.
Taemin has the passion, the power and the drive to become anything he wants to be. I know that anything Taemin sets his mind to do, he will accomplish. He’s delved into a lot of things throughout his life as an idol, but ultimately his calling is performing on a live stage. And he does it like no fucking other.
I can’t do this any more I already have SO MANY FEELS FOR TAEMIN THIS IS SERIOUSLY NOT HELPING.
HERE’S YOUR DOSE OF TAEMAN FOR TODAY
