SHINee’s Taemin Shares How He Came to Audition for SM Entertainment on “Problematic Men”
During the broadcast, Taemin dishes on how he spent his days as as student. “I prepared to be a celebrity since I was in sixth grade, so I don’t have that many memories,” the singer reveals. “It was a different lifestyle compared to others, but when I was an elementary school student I studied, and I think I was the earnest type.”
Taemin’s school records are subsequently revealed on the show and indicate that as a fifth grader, Taemin wanted to be a pilot when he grew up.
He comments, “When I was younger, I thought being able to freely fly in the sky looked cool, so I was set on becoming a pilot.”
But within a year he had changed his mind. “I came to enjoy dancing,” he explains. “My parents also knew that I would mimic choreography. People around me would often tell me to become a celebrity, so I auditioned and fortunately joined SM Entertainment.”
