During his interview, Taemin said he applied to the military band because he “is a singer and likes to sing,” which proves just how much he loves music.

Taemin also revealed that he hopes that his time in the military band will broaden his musical spectrum, so he can “try more genres and concepts later on.”

While serving in the military, Taemin’s been sharpening his musical skills. He said he started learning how to play the piano with the military band.

Of course, Shawols know that Taemin has flexed his piano skills plenty of times in the past, but it’s great to hear that he’s spending time practicing the piano during his enlistment.

From the sounds of it, Taemin is going to come out of the military with even sharper musical skills than he went in with, and we can’t wait to hear him try new concepts and genres when he completes his military service!
