more about kidnapping au 2? like how did shinee react when they realise he's jinki's brother? how did jinki react? does it affect their debut at all?
When SHINee find out everything that happened with Taemin, they’re mostly just shocked at first. Because how could someone not know that they were kidnapped? They couldn’t believe that Taemin had no idea, but then they’re told that he wasn’t even two-years-old when he was kidnapped, and they realize that okay yeah maybe it’s possible to be kidnapped and have no idea.
Then they find out that he’s Jinki’s baby brother, they think this is actually some sort of secret camera bullshit, because that’s way too good to be true. This is all a joke; a sick, twisted, demented sort of joke. They can’t believe the company is doing this shit to their youngest member, or their leader for that matter. That’s a really sick joke, to make him think that his missing baby brother has actually been right in front of him for years now.
But then it’s actually really legit happening. They really can’t believe that it’s happening.
When Jinki talks with his parents about it and finds out everything that’s happening, he just cries. So hard. Because his baby brother has been there this whole time and he didn’t even recognize his own baby brother.
SHINee’s activities get put on hold until the whole trial/legal system thing for Taemin’s kidnapping case gets solved. Meanwhile, the freshly debuted SHINee are getting tons of press because of the case, and everyone wants to know everything about what happened to Taemin.
Eventually, like after months (or almost a year), SHINee gets to start being SHINee again. Taemin’s name is no longer Taemin (I have no idea what his real name would be), Jinki and Taemin are much closer but also awkward in a way, and Taemin finds out he’s actually almost a whole year younger than he thought he was.
It’s just a mess basically, but they do still get to be SHINee.
