Taemin tried to leave early... He tried.
On the February 15 episode of 'Music Bank,' all the artists went on stage for the 1st place announcement at the end of the show as they usually do.
The trophy was given to Seventeen, however, the boy group was not present to accept the award. There was no encore performance but their song "Home" started playing, signaling the end of the show.
As soon as the 1st place song came on, Taemin, who was already very close to the exit, tried to casually dance off the stage first.
But his attempt in being the first one to leave failed as he was the only moving and the camera zoomed in on him. Taemin seemed to have noticed the camera because he awkwardly reverted back to his position.
Netizens burst into laughter, and commented, "LOL so funny," "Lolol he just wants to go home," "This is so cute," "Taemin tried so hard to make it smooth lolol."
