In my opinion, one of the things that makes has made this artist so successful is his completely distinct sound and style. Because of this, Taemin’s music is instantly recognizable and identifiable as a Taemin song.

Blending elements of theatrical performance and music styles reminiscent of Michael Jackson’s 80s discography, Taemin has crafted a completely independent musical identity that has resulted in catchy tracks and incredible records.
