"Move" is an appropriate name for an album by Taemin, who has become known for his high-level performance skills and choreography-focused music videos. It is no wonder that KBS recruited Taemin for their idol survival show "The Unit" as a performance mentor to the contestants, as discussed in a previous article.
Billboard notes that Taemin's previous appearance on the Mnet competition show "Hit The Stage" proved that he has a sense of artistry that goes beyond the safe, commercialized products of the mainstream K-pop industry.
Soompi reports that Taemin will do the first performance of the track "Move" at his "OFF-SICK " solo concert. The October 19 airing of Mnet's "M!Countdown" will showcase the first broadcast performance of the "Move" single.

The long wait since Taemin's last comeback in Korea is almost over. His last album was the full-length "Press It" that came out in February 23, 2016. Bruno Mars did some writing and production on its title track "Press Your Number."
