[Star of the Week] SHINee Taemin’s Views on Love
SHINee’s Taemin may be the maknae of the group, but he’s set to take on some big boy responsibilities alongside A Pink’s Na Eun, as the latest idol couple to join MBC’s We Got Married.
Taemin may be young and admits he has never dated, but we think he definitely has a way with the ladies.
So as we look forward to the couple’s adventures on the show, we’re also looking back on some of the things Taemin has said that suggest he’s not so green in the love department.
Taemin’s dream girl
During SHINee’s Dream Girl promotions, many were naturally curious about the idol group members’ respective dream girls.
When asked about his ideal type in an interview with @star1 magazine, Taemin said, “Because I’m still young, I haven’t particularly thought about ideal types, But if I had to say something, it’s a person who has a large sense of responsibility.”
Although he initially shied away from the question, we think that’s a pretty grownup answer coming from such a young idol.
Taemin, the master of fan service
Men don’t always know the right thing to say when it comes to love, but Taemin definitely knows how to flatter the ladies.
During a Google+ video chat event with fans last month, Taemin caused quite a stir with his response to a fan question.
When a female fan from Canada asked Taemin who he would most like to meet, without missing a beat, he responded, “It’s you” with a smile, not only causing the fan audience to screech in delight but the fan to fall out of her chair.
Taemin’s lines work internationally, people.
Taemin, BoA’s man
But that’s not the first time Taemin has caused a disturbance.
In fact, not only did he steal our hearts, he stole singer BoA’s heart as the leading man in her music video for Disturbance.
The two make a pretty couple in the music video, but the magic is in the behind-the-scenes moments as Taemin and BoA try to get into the love mode.
See what we mean below.
SHINee love lessons
So where did Taemin pick up his smooth ways? Not from the other SHINee members, apparently.
When asked which SHINee member knows the most about girls on KBS’ Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook, Taemin said, “The members don’t really have much information on girls.” He revealed, instead, that he asks his manager.
Will Taemin be the shy, inexperienced boy on We Got Married or will he prove to the dominant, leader type of man? All we know is that we’ll be tuning in to the show with the rest of you to find out!
