After earning SM Entertainment’s praise, they extended an offer to him to make his solo debut, and he released his first solo single, “Danger,” in 2014.

Curator host HoonD questioned Taemin, saying he heard there was a rule against staying in the SM Entertainment practice room for an extended period of time, which he acknowledged was true.

Taemin wasn’t the only one who “broke” the rule, as he hilariously named his best friend, EXO‘s Kai, as an accomplice.

The SHINee maknae shared that he loved practicing with Kai. They bonded as similar-aged trainees who both shared a passion and natural talent for dancing.

Taemin revealed that he and Kai would agree to stay the night in the company building, “practicing until dawn together” and sleeping in the vocal training room.

Reflecting on how his trainee days compared with SM Entertainment’s trainees today, he stated that he only wished the company had more practice rooms back then.

Proving his dedication, he revealed he practiced next to the building’s water tank when all the rooms were occupied.
