SEOUL — Taemin of SHINee will serve the rest of his military duty as a social service agent beginning Friday, announced label SM Entertainment.

He enlisted as a member of Army band in May, but his depression and anxiety disorders, for which he has long been treated, have worsened recently. It has become impossible to pursue proper treatment while serving his duty, the army decided, and from now on he will try and focus on improving his mental health.

In October last year, the Military Manpower Administration gave fans a glimpse of him with a video in which the idol assured that he is adjusting well and has gained 10 kilograms.
