After her relationship with her SM Entertainment junior, EXO’s Baekhyun, came to light, SNSD Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon has been profusely apologising. According to Korean media reports, the K-Pop idol girl group member uploaded a series of posts on Instagram with the message:
Sones (Girls’ Generation fans),I am really sorry for shocking and hurting you all, for making you experience these unnecessary emotions because I was not careful. I think you all will feel disappointed, angry, upset. I accept that and want to apologise.
The 25-year-old K-pop star went on to respond to criticism that she had made fools of her fans when she posted some photos on Instagram recently which appeared to be addressed to her fans, but are now seen to be secretive “love notes” to Beakhyun.
“Whatever I say now will be misunderstood but I am not making excuses, I just don’t want everyone to be hurt because of me. A lot of people feel I purposely uploaded those photos to make fun of my fans, but that is not my intention,” she said.
But she’s not the only one, of course. Baekhyun is also facing a similar backlash since their relationship was exposed, with a number of his fans expressing disappointment that some of the photos he posted now appear to be actually addressed to Taeyeon.
During his first appearance after news of their romance broke, fans hurled mean comments at Baekhyun. He was hosting Korean weekly music chart show “Inkigayo” when fans in the crowd started calling him names e.g. betrayer, traitor, etc. Despite the chants, he managed to remain calm, kept a straight face, and carried on MC-ing.
Are we the only ones who think that they deserve a break? They’re such a cute “Taeng Kung Couple” though.
