On the February 17 broadcast of SBS’ sitcom, “Salamander Guru,” SHINee’s Taemin made a surprise guest appearance. Sun Dal and Won Sam are approached by a seventy year-old grandfather who inquires about the status of a cornea donation for his grandchild. The grandfather is expected to pay a fee of $500 for their psychic services, but instead he slips them a phony bill of $1,000. After receiving his change, the man turns to leave the establishment, and as he does, he reveals his true identity.
Taemin had to go through three hours of make-up process to transform into the character of a grandfather. Taemin’s new look appeared very authentic with age spots and wrinkles around his eyes. After the shoot, SHINee’s maknae was praised for his acting skills by the crew. The episode is scheduled to air on February 17 at 11:00PM KST.
