Key was also able to host an Instagram Live session with the band, delighting fans everywhere who were able to catch it.
Taemin is the remaining SHINee member who was yet to enlist in the military. Onew and Key have both been discharged early this year.
According to Soompi, Minho immediately went on the official SHINee website to write this heartfelt letter upon his return: “To my SHINee World!! My SHINee World, whom I love!! Salute! I report that sergeant Choi Min-ho has been discharged! This day has come to me as well… It still doesn’t feel real, and I’m excited and happy! Our Shawol who believed in me and waited for me, get ready to run everywhere with Choi Min-ho! I love you.”
He also left the sweetest audio message: “Hello. Salute! This is Sergeant Choi Min-ho. SHINee World, as of November 15, 2020, I have safely completed my military duties. I’m happy, excited, and feeling an emotion I’ve never felt to have safely completed my military service, which can be considered both short and long. More than anything, I’m most happy and excited that the time has come for me to be with all of you again. I’d like to sincerely thank you for cheering me on and waiting for me during my military service. From now on, I’d like to create happy and nice memories together. I miss you so much, and I love you. You are always my hope. Salute!”
SHINee debuted under SM Entertainment in 2008 as a five-piece group, including vocalist Jonghyun who passed away in December 2017. They are known best for their chart-topping singles “Replay,” “Ring Ding Dong,” and “Lucifer.”
Their most recent album was a three-parter, titled “The Story of Light,” released in mid-2018.
