SHINee’s Taemin revealed that he bought his parents a house in Cheongdamdong (an affluent neighborhood within Gangnam) and an imported car (which is known to be very expensive in Korea).
On September 26, Taemin made a guest appearance on MBC’s variety talk show “Radio Star” along with actor Kim Jung Nam, fellow teammate Onew and CN Blue’s Lee Jong Hyun for the special segment “Idols Whom Nunas Love.”
During the broadcast, MC Kim Kook Jin asked the idol singers, “What’s the biggest present you’ve given to your parents since debut?”
Taemin responded, “I bought my parents a house in Cheongdamdong and an imported car.” Onew replied, “I gave my parents all the money I earned. They got a new car and I’m currently saving to give them a new house.”
Lee Jong Hyun answered, “I bought them a house in Busan. Father doesn’t have a driver’s license so I didn’t get him a car.”
