SHINee’s Taemin Provided His Parents with a New Home and Car After Debut


SHINee’s Taemin recently revealed that he gifted his parents with a lovely new home.

The star made a guest appearance on KBS 2TV’s “1 vs. 100” and talked about what had changed the most since he debuted with group SHINee five years ago.

He said, “I think the greatest change I have experienced was being able to help my parents out financially.” He continued, “I was able to buy them a home in Cheongdam-dong, and I was even able to get my mom a purse. Although I have bought them a car, they just look at it from the balcony. Those moments were heart-warming and will always stay with me.”

He also talked about other changes since his debut, adding, “Since we had promoted heavily abroad, we decided to focus on staying in the country for our activities. Since we have been active for so long, the stage is now comfortable, and I’ve gotten to know the broadcast production staff, so it’s comfortable.” 

This episode of “1 vs. 100’ featuring guest Taemin will air on November 12 at 8:55 PM KST.
