It has barely been a few hours since the Music Bank mid-year special ended but apart from the excitement of the special stages, SNSD’s Taeyeon remarks towards the end of the broadcast has become a hot topic among netizens.
SNSD had picked up the K-Chart mid-year special award and while delivering the usual thank you speech, one part of Taeyeon’s speech was rather controversial, “…I hope Music Bank can provide a good environment for artists…”
This discontent apparently stemmed from an incident earlier in the day when Taeyeon pre-recorded the special stage of Kelly Clarkson’s song. Towards the end of the recording, Taeyeon had issues with her ear piece, causing her to go off-key. Her requests to re-do the performance were rejected by the PD although it’s usually granted on normal days. As a result, Taeyeon showed her displeasure during SNSD’s Oh! performance.
Netizens had mixed reactions where some questioned her professionalism while others hope that Music Bank can really beef up their production system since this is not the first time and Taeyeon was just being brave and speaking out for everyone.
