SHINee‘s Taemin celebrates his birthday today, July 18, turning 21 in Korean reckoning. 

The “noona-killer” idol left a thoughtful message along with a picture on SHINee’s official website on his birthday, asking SHAWOLS to spread the love to those less fortunate. He wrote, “This is Taemin who celebrates his birthday today. To every fan who congratulates me on my birthday every year before anyone else- thank you. It seems that I only receive even though I can’t take care of you guys. From now on, it will be the most precious and valuable gift to me if everyone gives their devotion and love to those less fortunate in my stead. To SHAWOLS who always look toward us with unchanging hearts, I love you.”
