With K-Pop quickly becoming a global sensation, SHINee member Taemin recently was featured on an American television broadcast.
On February 21, fans and viewers of NBC's 'The Today Show' were in for a special treat as reporters covered a feature titled 'What Is K-Pop?' in light of the '2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics'.
The segment consisted of popular K-Pop stars including BTS with their American television debut performing "DNA", Psy's viral "Gangnam Style" MV, and footage from Taemin's "Move" MV. Coined as the "Korean Michael Jackson" for his charismatic performances, Taemin sat down with NBC for an exclusive interview.
Upon seeing the preview, Shawols from all over the world proudly posted the clip via social media and commented praising the iconic star.
Stacy Nam also expressed her gratitude in having the privilege to meet with the SM artist.
미국 시간으로 오늘 수요일 오전에 유명한 방송 the Today Show에 드디어 작년에 촬영했던 태민이가 나온다. 올림픽 시기에 한국이 많은 주목을 받는데 한국 소개할때 빠질수 없는 부분 중 하나는 음악. 방송사 측에서 KPOP에 대표 아티스트를 추천해달라고 했을때 바로 떠오르는 이름이 태민이였다. 아티스트라는 건 그저 직업이 아닌 천직이라는게 느껴지는 아티스트 이태민. 어린 나이에 풋풋함과 귀여움이 넘치는 사랑스러운 모습이지만 음악 이야기 할때는 누구보다 성숙하고 진지하는 이미지를 보여주는 태민 인상적이다. 앞으로 어떤 모습을 보여줄지 너무 기대되고 많은 사람들이 알고 관심 받고 사랑주고 인증해야하는 아티스트 중 한명이 태민이다. 방송에 나오고 Today Show SNS에 올라갈 예정이니 지켜봐주시고 예쁜 댓글 많이 남겨주시길 바랄게요! So happy that the piece I shot with TAEMIN for NBC's the Today Show is finally airing today! The segment, airing during the Olympics as part of a series introducing Korea to the world, focuses on an aspect of Korean culture that is gaining much momentum worldwide, KPOP. I knew when I first heard the concept behind the piece that I wanted none other than TAEMIN to be featured as an artist representative of the industry. He is undeniably talented, passionate about his artistry and is probably the most adorable angel puppy fluff I have had the pleasure of working with. He has also shown, in recent weeks, tremendous strength and courage through heart-breaking sorrow. I cannot think of someone more deserving of all the love, attention, and praise that comes his way. For those outside the United States, the piece will most likely be posted to the Today Show's social media after it airs so please keep an eye out on their accounts and leave many sweet and encouraging messages for him!
