After initially enlisting as a member of the military band, SHINee’s Taemin will be completing the remainder of his military service as a public service worker.
On January 14, SM Entertainment announced that Taemin had been transferred from the military band to public service due to worsening symptoms of depression and anxiety.
The agency’s full statement is as follows:
This is SM Entertainment.
As of January 14, Taemin has been transferred from the military band to supplementary service.
Due to the symptoms of depression and anxiety that Taemin has been suffering from before [his enlistment], he continued to receive treatment and therapy even while carrying out his service. However, because his symptoms recently worsened, the military determined that it had become impossible for him to continue his military life and treatment at the same time, and he was accordingly transferred to supplementary service.
Therefore, Taemin plans to fulfill his military duty as a public service worker.
We apologize for giving you cause for concern through this sudden news, and we will continue to focus on Taemin’s treatment in the future and do our utmost to ensure that he can find stability.
