Fan Accounts Tell of Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon Tearfully Apologizing to Fans at Airport
According to Girls’ Generation fan accounts, member Taeyeon was visibly distressed and trying to apologize to her fans at Gimpo International Airport.
Taeyeon and the other Girls’ Generation members were at the airport on their way to Japan for their “Japan 2rd Tour 2014.” According to one fan account that has been spreading through Twitter and other social networking sites, “As soon as Taeyeon arrived at the airport she looked around for her fans and tried to talk to them. She told her fans that she had wanted to apologize to them but her agency was keeping her quiet and that she would find a way to communicate with them soon.” According to the fan, despite her manager’s attempts to stop her, Taeyeon managed to talk to her fans for one minute, apologizing multiple times.
On June 19, Dispatch released photos of Taeyeon and EXO‘s Baekhyun together in Taeyeon’s car. SM Entertainment confirmed that the two had recently started dating. However, fan reaction have been mixed and sometimes volatile. Although Taeyeon did write an apology in her Instagram, both her and Baekhyun have remained mostly silent since the news.
