Now that he has effectively transformed into TaeMAN, SHINee‘s Taemin is gearing up for his solo debut, ACE. He will become the first SHINee member to make an official solo debut.

After releasing a slew of shirtless photos, SM Entertainment has now dropped the MV teaser for title track, “Danger.”

The MV teaser is presenting an edgier look for Taemin, complete with even heavier eye-liner than usual and some crazy blonde hair. From what we can tell, it looks like the typical box-set affair, except more visually appealing.  There appears to be a darker concept for the solo debut.

Musically, “Danger” seems to be an electronic track with a bit of something extra — a bit of Michael Jackson flair. It is unclear if this will be an autotune-heavy track, or if Taemin has managed to alter his voice to sound different from we are used to hearing. So far, “Danger” is minimalist in nature.

The mini album is set to be released on August 18.  What do you think of the teaser? Do you think Taemin will release something musically distinct from SHINee, or follow the electronic status quo?
