Who is Taemin’s girlfriend? Lovelife about Taemin of SHINee

Who is Taemin’s girlfriend now?

I’ll introduce his lover and his lovelife.


Taemin(Real name: Lee Tae-min/ Hangul:이태민, born July 18, 1993) is a South Korean singer, dancer and actor. He was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea.

At the age of 12, Taemin was scouted by SM Entertainment after a successful audition.  After graduating from  Hanlim Multi Art School in 2012, He is currently majoring in Musical and Film at Myongji University.

Taemin debuted as a member of SHINee in 2008, performing as the main dancer. He also began his acting career in 2009 through his performance in Tae Hee, Hye Kyo, Ji Hyun (2009).


Taemin stated that he isn’t now dating anyone. He is the youngest of the group, so compared to other members, he looks like someone with little romantic experience.

In a TV program, Taemin talked about how he views relationships. He said, “I don’t feel like being dating anyone now. You may think my feeling is kind of weird because I’m in the age in which people want to fall in love with love someone.”

He then added: “Right now i’m performing in the TV variety show We Got Married(2008 – present), which lets me to experience some kind of romantic relationship. So I’m not in the mood to ask someone out now.”

Ex Girlfriend

Sulli of f(x)

It was said that Taemin was seeing Sulli, a member of the girl group f(x), when they were trainees of their agency, SM Entertainment.

At that time, the agency gave their trainees severe lessons, such as dancing, singing, acting and learning languages. They had to train for about 8 hours a day to make their debut in the entertainment world.

Because of this, trainees inevitably form a strong bond. It is no wonder Taemin and Sulli shared such a bond.

Apparently they broke up before their debut.

His Ideal type of Woman

When appeared in a TV program as a guest, Taemin was asked about his ideal girlfriend. He answered, ” I want to be dating an ordinary person. I can’t even think of going out with a celebrity.”

he also said, “To me it doesn’t matter whether she is beautiful or not. I like a woman who has a beautiful mind.”

Views on Marriage

When Shinee’s members were talking about marriage, they agreed that Taemin would get married earlier than any others.

They said Taemin seemed to get married as soon as he fell in love. Taemin admitted that he was actually that kind of guy, but he didn’t think he would get married so quickly.

However, Taemin is now changing his mind. Through performing as a husband of Son NaEun (a member of the girl group APINK ) in the TV variety show, he came to think that marriage is nice and apparently is telling other members that he wants to get married as soon as possible.

His Ideal situation of dating

Taemin seems to be a romantically experienced, but actually he isn’t. In a magazine interview, he said ,”I’m looking forward to going on a date, thinking of my ideal situations of dating.”

His idealist date plan as follows; Taemin meets her late in the afternoon. Then they hang out on the street eating some snacks. At the evening, they enjoy dinner at an exclusive restaurant. After dinner, Taemin gives her a song made by him. He says he wants to do everything to please his future girlfriend.

How his fan think about his lover

Taemin is the youngest of the group, so he has a lot of older female fans. They support him like his sister or mother.

When asked about his ideal woman in a TV variety show, Taemin said that he didn’t feel like being dating anyone. Instead of being pleased with his comments, most of his fans rather worried about his feelings.

Taemin is said to have little romantic experience, so his fans hope that he will meet someone with beautiful mind, that is his ideal type of woman.
