170414 A Message from Taemin (1:06)
Hello, members of SHINee World J, this is Taemin~
Yes. I have news to tell everyone today.
I’ve been wanting to tell you for a long time so I’ve been restraining myself but it was decided my first solo stage will be held on the 1st and 2nd of July~ Whoooo~ An applause~ He he
The venue will be… THE Budou-kan..!
Yes. Because I want to show an appearance that is different from SHINee’s Taemin so I’m giving it all my thought on what kind of stage I should make it.
I would be happy if I am able to welcome that time with many of you.
Also, to accompany the concert, I am preparing a new album.
Going to / Staying in Japan more than the other members, I’ve secretly been preparing. Please look forward to how the album will turn out!
I think I will have more opportunities to meet everyone through various activities [in the future]. Please look forward to Taemin hereafter. I ask for your support~
Well then, this was Taemin.
Staffs: Taemin who is currently busying himself with preparation for the concert and the production of the new songs.
He’s very fired up!
We kindly ask for everyone’s continued support!
 You won’t believe changed to THE (nanto) : Similar to Why when used as an interjection. I think “Behold!” would be a close translation in some contexts. THE in this setence, means “none other than,” but word “nanto” really means You won’t believe! or can you believe it?
 To accompany: for the concert

170407 Osaka – What was Taemin hinting at? [Link]
Taemin: Yes! Aaah~ everyone of Osaka! We met again after a really short time, didn’t we. I’m really happy but let’s have fun again before long. And, ummm, I will do my best for the remaining concerts. And ummm, …… Ah, this is a secret… yes (yup). (66
Key: Ahahaha! What is this!
Key: Uwah uwah uwah uwah uwoooi
Minho: Ummm, it’s a secret?
Key: Well, I will ask him [when we get back to] the dressing room
Taemin: Ok, Minho-saan
Onew: Could it be…
Taemin: No, you can’t
Onew: Were you going to say that you love them or something like that?
Taemin: I don’t really say phrases like “I love you”
Key: You said it just now though
Taemin: Ok, Thank you ~ Please come to to-…tomorrow’s concert…
Onew: What kind of confidence(*)
Jonghyun: There are no tickets! Now (laughs)
(*)I’m not sure what he meant by this. A slightly more literal translation would be “of what confidence” He might have meant “where did you get your confidence from?” but i’m really not sure
