Back in 2019, Taemin expanded on his superstardom when he joined SuperM. Of course, he still remains a loyal and dedicated member of SHINee. But when the maknae accidentally promoted SuperM during a jacket shoot for their latest comeback, “Don’t Call Me”, Taemin’s fellow SHINee members had the most hilarious reaction.

During the jacket shoot, the SHINee members came together to take a cute group photo. That’s when Taemin decided to flash the SHINee World hand signal—or, at least, he thought he did.

After forming the symbol with his hands, Taemin (who has been promoting with SuperM for over a year) realized he was actually doing the SuperM sign! While the moment was hilarious in itself, the SHINee members’ reactions made it even funnier.

The first member to notice Taemin’s mistake was the group’s main rapper, Minho, who jokingly exclaimed, “Yah, do you want to die?!“. As soon as the members realized what Taemin did, they all burst out in laughter.

And things only got more chaotic from there. As Minho continued explaining Taemin’s hand symbol to the members, the mischievous SHINee maknae turned towards the camera and revealed that underneath his jacket and shirt, he was actually wearing a SuperM t-shirt.

Key comically sighed and shook his head in disbelief as Minho jokingly asked the staff to wrap up the shoot. “A spy was here,” he joked. Onew seemed to enjoy his dongsaeng’s antics just as much, laughing through the whole exchange.

As they wrapped up, Minho asked all the members to show off the SuperM hand sign and take a photo “for our Taemin.” While Taemin refused at first, the close-knit team all ended up taking the photo together through their laughter.
