Because of his young age, Taemin was rather shy and only spoke when asked. His shyness eventually left him, yet speaking comfortably took some time. Even to this day, whenever Taemin talks to big crowds he is seen to grasp onto his trousers or other members for support. Or is seen to place his hand over his raging heart and letting out a deep breath after he is finished. 

Replay (Noona Neomu Yeppeo) Edit

Taemin's parts in Replay were short, mainly cuts of him and the 'noona' yet his vocal cuts were limited. Taemin was struggling with his vocals as he was midway through puberty and his voice wasn't fully developed for long or high notes. Dance wise, Taemin is nearly always in the center of their formation as he is the main dancer of the group.
