During the showcase, Taemin confessed that he begged group mate Jonghyun to give him a song for his new album. He said, "Jonghyun had written the lyrics for 'Already.' He was supposed to give that track to me but he suddenly changed his mind and said he would use it for himself. So I begged him to no end [for the song]."
Taemin added, "We were in the middle of our international tour. I managed to get the song by trailing him into his room." Minho, who was there, confirmed this with, "That's right. I'm aware of that, too."
Good on you Taemin for being persistent until the very end!
