SM Entertainment explained, "Tae-min has been receiving treatment and counseling due to depression and panic disorder while he served his mandatory military service," adding, "He was transferred to be a public service worker according to the military's judgment and measures that as his symptoms have been getting worse recently, Tae-min could not continue to receive treatments in military.”
