Taemin is one of those natural-born idols who probably could have done anything else in the whole wide world that he wanted to do, but we are all #blessed that he chose this. He’s the naughty maknae on top in Shinee, the wisened sunbaenim in SuperM, and simply everything we could ever want in a solo artist. I mean, for realz.
Here is where I would typically tell just a couple of highlights about the artist du jour, but I feel like a man with this storied of a career should really get to do it himself. Taemin recently did a two-part episode on Ravi’s Close Up where he gave us a peek into what his like was like as a kiddo, how he got into SM, and who he really feels like he is as a person. I highly recommend you watch if you haven’t yet.

But we aren’t here just to get to know Taemin as Taemin, we are also here to celebrate his most recent comeback with his third album Never Gonna Dance Again: Act 2. The disc kicks off with the title track IDEA. It is precisely the song we expect from Taemin at this point – spot on danceable pop with theatrical elements and a strong dramatic line throughout. The MV is full of sleek sets, haute styling, and sexy, sexy choreo. And a crop top.
You like that crop top? You can see it a hell of a lot more in the choreo video for the song…and glimpses of that elusive hip and tummy tattoo…
