SHINee's maknae Taemin will not be taking part in this year's round of university entrance exams on account of his participation in SHINee's overseas promotions.
Due to the time constraints of his busy schedule, Taemin has commented that he does not yet feel prepared enough to take the test. He will thus forgo taking this year's exam in order to ready himself for a future round of tests.
In related news, SHINee's time consuming overseas efforts have been met with much success. The group recently traveled to London to perform a mini solo concert at the 2011 London Film Festival, updating fans along the way with picture updates relayed through their Facebook.
SHINee will be coming out with their first ever full-length Japanese album, titled "THE FIRST," on December 7th.
