If only SHINee's Taemin was born on July 28!

SHINee have given fans many memories and the like over the past few years, but the boys very nearly (inadvertently) gave a Shawol the biggest gift ever - the grand lotto jackpot prize! 

According to a new report from Korean media out SporBiz, a SHINee fan had put down each member's birthdays for their lotto numbers this week and it very nearly paid off. The Shawol had nominated 9 and 23 (corresponding to Key's birthday of September 23), 12 and 14 (Onew's birthday of December 14), and 7 and 18 (Taemin's birthday of July 18).

The winning lotto numbers ultimately were 7, 9, 12, 14, 23, and 28, meaning that the fan missed out on the grand lotto prize by 1 number. Upon being asked what their feeling was after being so close to winning the lottery thanks to SHINee, the fan quipped "if only Taemin was born on July 28!"

Who knew remembering the birthdays your favourite group members would (very nearly) pay off - literally?
