Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon Pens Beautiful Tribute To Father And Thanks Everyone For Their Support
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon has opened up about her father’s passing.
On March 9, Taeyeon’s father passed away. SM Entertainment confirmed the news and announced that Taeyeon would be delaying the release of her new single “Happy,” which was originally scheduled to be released as a celebration of her birthday, as she stayed close with her family.
On March 13, Taeyeon took to her personal Instagram account to open up about her father and express gratitude to all who have shown their love and support to her. Her post reads as follows:
I wish to express my deep gratitude to all those who sent me messages of congratulations and comfort on March 9, 2020. Countless people reached out to me, embraced me warmly, and patted me on the back in consolation. I will hold this deep love and warm comfort in my embrace and keep living well. To all those who came to me immediately and to those who sent their sincerity from far away.. I ask for your understanding that I am not able to reach out to each person I am grateful for to thank you.
For both me and my family, March 9 will be a day we can’t forget. My father has been with me from day one when I took my first steps in music at a young age. He would turn the ignition on in the car before I got in, and would always be on the move like that for his daughter. Even now, I am sure he is on the move, one step ahead, for all of us. I believe he is looking down on us from a good place and is watching over us.
Lastly, I want to thank everyone who has done their best and shown their concern for me, and dad! I, Taeyeon, love you so very much.

2020년 3월 9일 저에게 많은 축하와 위로를 해주신 모든 분들께 깊은 감사의 인사를 전하고 싶습니다. 숫자로 가늠할 수 없을 만큼의 많은 분들이 저에게 닿았고 저를 따뜻하게 안아주시고 토닥여 주셨어요. 저는 깊은 사랑과 따뜻한 위로를 안은 채 앞으로도 잘 살아가겠습니다. 먼 걸음 한 번에 달려와주신 분들, 그리고 멀리서도 정성껏 진심으로 마음 전해주신 분들.. 감사한 분들께 일일이 다 찾아뵙고 인사드리지 못하는 점 깊은 양해부탁드려요. 저를 비롯한 우리 가족들에게 3월 9일은 정말 잊지 못할 날이 될 것 같습니다. 저희 아빠는 제가 어렸을 적 음악을 시작한 첫 날 부터 함께 해 주셨어요. 먼저 나서서 차에 시동을 걸어놓으시고 딸을 위해 그렇게 움직이셨어요. 지금도 어디선가 우리 모두를 위해 먼저 움직이고 계실 거예요. 좋은 곳에서 내려다 보시며 우리를 지켜주고 계실거라 믿어요. 마지막으로 함께 걱정해주시고 최선을 다 해 주신 모든 분들께 감사드리고 아빠! 저 태연이가 정말 많이 사랑해요???
