Taemin of Shinee and SuperM said he hoped his third solo EP, Advice, would console his fans during his absence for military service.
The new EP reflects how he tackled new challenges, such as singing rap for the title track.
“I’ve tried many things I haven’t done before, ” said the veteran idol, adding that the title track would show a different side of him.
He also collaborated with Taeyeon, a senior colleague from SM Entertainment, on a duet called If I Could Tell You.
Of the five tracks, he is proudest of the fourth – Strings.
“I really sang well, I’ve got to say, ” he said with a smile.
His previous solo gig, Never Gonna Dance Again: Act 2, came out in November 2020 and topped iTunes top albums charts in 31 regions.
His recent digital concert drew over 90,000 fans.
He will start his military service May 31. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
