"Today, Taeyeon was looking for someone at the airport who could speak Korean, and I must have looked Korean to her and she asked me to pass on a message. That she was so sorry to her fans… she kept telling me that she was sorry and sorry* and to pass it on. I thought I should pass it on exactly as I heard to everyone so I am writing this. #SONE

*She uses two different forms of the word “sorry”. The second is more respectful than the other, which kinda hits both people younger than her and older than her.

You said Baekhyun apologizing now would be too late as fans are already inconsolable on both sides. How is Taeyeon's recent actions at the airport being taken by her fans? Did it just make things worse?

oniontaker:

She did it the right way, so that it would spread by word-of-mouth, from fan to fan. She could have done it online, a faceless, emotionless set of black and white pixels. She could have done it through the company as a corporate, legally safe statement.

She went back to the roots of why people fell for SNSD in the first place, the intimate, live performances for fans. She went to a fan, looked at them in the eyes and pleaded them to believe how she felt. There was nothing grand, nothing constructed… it was all personal and raw. Something that the media couldn’t readily pick up on, in contrast to the revelation of her secret life.

The "ALWAYS HERE" letter project to Taeyeon

Hello SONEs,

We are a group of Sones who would like to show our support to Taeyeon.
Our plan is to send her letters which will be hand-delivered by a Sone in Korea to her parents in Jeonju to pass to her.
Please note that we are not fansite admins nor do we run any SNSD-related sites. We…

Among many other things that hinder female idols from getting the respect and recognition they deserve, nothing is scarier and easier to ruin someone’s career and reputation forever than a string of scandals.

What are you seeing? Above are real netizen comments for female idols whose careers are “tainted” because they decided to date, take a photo with a male celebrity, and showed their limit of what they can take. Some of these idol’s images are ruined solely on malicious and at times, baseless rumors like plastic surgery, pregnancy and bullying. These comments range from disbandment threats, sexual harrassment, and overall, just straight up misogyny.

Why should we care? The damaging effects of these comments can greatly affect an idol’s perception of themselves in a negative and unhealthy way. This can affect their performances and variety show appearances, their openness to share things to their fans, etc. They may come to realize that there’s no use of being an idol and quit, or even worse, quit living altogether.

What can we do? Supporting female idols is important. This means giving moral support to them not only during scandals, but during promotions and hiatus, giving financial support by buying their albums, and to not spread malicious rumors around, even if it’s someone we don’t necessarily fancy. Why?

Because female idols are also ladies, just like most of us are. What they feel, we probably feel on a daily basis. Rather than sending hate to them, we should come to understand, sympathize and be there for them because no one else will.

Look back. You saw the many times Taeyeon teared up, the times she held back her tears when she heard the fans cheering for them; the times when you knew she knows we’re here for them, the times when you knew she appreciates her fans. Recall that, the gut feeling that we meant something to her. Remember how you never doubted her sincerity? Think of the many times you smiled for her, for the things she did. Whether it’s something beautiful about her or something stupid she did, she made you smile.

You called yourself a SONE, remember why? “If you’re still Girls’ Generation the next life time, I’ll still be a SONE.” Remember the pride in you when you say that line?

Please think of her good before you condemn her with the bad you heard. Don’t let what you may have heard for the past few days cloud over your judgement and what you knew for the past few years. What about the many times she stood up for us? Why do we need to question her love for us when we have witnessed it before?

It’s alright to be upset, it’s alright to feel hurt, it’s really alright. It’s alright to have your own opinion, but don’t be too quick to make a decision, don’t be too quick to change your perspective. You’re disappointed(aren’t we all?), it’s fine, simply because you care. But think of the very first reason, the very simple reason of why you chose to care - because the 9 girls made you smile, she made you smile.
