lee taemin, it’s honestly amazing to see how much you’ve grown these past few years. your singing and dancing have improved greatly, you no longer blink constantly, you’re more lively and spirited on and off stage, you depend less on key and onew, etc. you’ve truly grown into a young man (although you’ll forever and always the adorable maknae of shinee). happy 20th (international 19th) birthday!

p.s: puberty has truly done you well (;
