Here Is How SHINee Is Keeping Busy Without Taemin

Are you missing the SHINees as much as we are? We can’t believe SHINee came back this year and then Taemin had to enlist putting group activities on hiatus 😭. While the time we spent together this year was amazing we can’t help but miss them the moment they can’t promote as a group. But we will wait together with the boys for Taemin’s return. Here is to an even bigger SHINee return in late 2022 or early 2023!

But the boys individually are doing anything but starve us for content. Onew, Minho, Jonghyun, and Key have been keeping busy since Taemin enlisted in May. The idols have a bunch of new things coming up so we thought we’d help you keep track of what’s coming next. Come along!


Key is finally gearing up for his new solo album! After he had to postpone it from July to September due to the record needing more work and him teasing us with ‘Hate That…’ at the end of August we have been not so patiently waiting for his new mini-album. September 27th is the holy day! Key’s first mini-album BAD LOVE and title of the same name are dropping that day and we already counting down the minutes. We have been promised a pop-dance anthem with retro vibes and all the synth sounds. That’s a recipe for success and might we just say, those alien teasers have been giving us everything. No one like Kim Kibum!

But of course, until the album drops you can still catch Kibum every Saturday on Amazing Saturday showing off his variety of skills and charisma, laughter is a guarantee!


SHINee’s leader has been keeping busy and we already miss seeing him every week on Sea Of Hope. ONEW just wrapped up the new healing variety which showed us a new side to our favorite boy Lee Jinki. We saw him cooking, making desserts, and giving us emotional performances, (the SHINee covers were the ones that made us cry the most). ONEW’s voice is a true gift to humanity and the scenery in which he performed was truly the cherry on top. We also loved seeing him make new friends and become closer to other industry seniors.

But ONEW is not done, while we are waiting for a new musical role to be around the next corner he just joined Kakao TV’s 개미는 오늘도 뚠뚠 챕터5 which is sure to make us laugh more than cry! But ONEW may we ask where that solo album is?


It would be an understatement to say that Minho has not been busy. Minho is always doing something and he was just confirmed for a new role! Minho will play Hoon in the new Kakao TV suspense collection drama Goosebumps. We have heard this one is not for the faint of heart. Not only is this a horror show but it is also reality-based *shiver* the world itself is a scary place friends no need to make it even scarier. But of course, we will be watching, anything for Choi Minho.

But that’s not all! Yumi’s Cells is scheduled to start airing on September 17th! We have been waiting months for this drama to drop and can’t wait to finally see Minho in a new role. You can also watch and/or listen to Minho every Wednesday and Friday on his Naver Now radio show SHINee Minho’s Best Choice, where the singer talks about all of his passions and gets to interview guests!
