The 4 Solo Members of SM Idol Groups with a Full-Length Album


SM Entertainment is one of the biggest entertainment agencies in South Korea, along with YG, JYP, and HYBE. The company has launched many superstars and basically created the K-pop idol formula we know today, beginning with the idol legends H.O.T in the nineties to most recently the fourth-generation superstars aespa

Did you know, however, that there are only FOUR members from idol groups in SM Entertainment currently that have released a full-length album? Of course, many members have released singles or extended plays, but there are only FOUR total members that have released full-length studio albums under SM Entertainment. Of course - we are talking about current artists. 

Let's take a look and see which four members have been able to release solo full-length albums throughout the years! 

SHINee Taemin

First Full-Length Album "Press It" - 2016.02.23 (Title Track: Press Your Number)

Second Full-Length Album "MOVE" - 2017.10.16 (Title Track: MOVE)

Third Full-Length Album Part. 1 "Never Gonna Dance Again: Act 1" - 2020.09.07 (Title Track: Criminal)

Third Full-Length Album Part. 2 "Never Gonna Dance Again: Act 2" - 2020.11.09 (Title Track: IDEA)

SHINee Jonghyun

First Full-Length Album "She is" - 2016.05.24 (Title Track: She is)

Second Full-Length Album "Poet I Artist" - 2018.01.23 (Title Track: Shinin')

Girls' Generation Taeyeon

First Full-Length Album "My Voice" - 2017.02.02 (Title Track: Fine)

Second Full-Length Album "Purpose" - 2019.10.28 (Title Track: Spark)

SHINee Key

First Full-Length Album "FACE" - 2018.11.26 (Title Track: One of Those Nights)

Kinda crazy to see that only these four artists were able to release full-length albums at SM - it is quite a lot of work preparing for a full-length album. We can see why these members were able to release albums - they are all extremely talented, and anyone can remember these albums on top of their heads, which means it was pretty successful as well! 

Was there anyone you expected but wasn't on the list? Which full-length album was your favorite? What artist would you like to see in 2022 release a full-length album? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. Taeyeon
  2. Jonghyun
  3. Key
  4. Taemin
