One of the members of the South Korean all-female group Girls’ Generation (SNSD), Taeyeon, shared a message on her Instagram account over the incident that occurred at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Tangerang, on Thursday, Aug. 17.

According to, Taeyeon seemed surprised with the massive crowd that welcomed her at the airport. “I actually fell to the floor, and I trembled and couldn’t stop crying,” she wrote. Sensing that the singer was in danger, the security guard came and lifted her, but Taeyeon said that it was also surprised her. “I was anxious because of the recurring physical contact from behind me and to my sides, and I couldn’t find any order.”


자카르타 공항에서 수많은 인파에 몰려 발이 엉키고 몸도 엉켜서 많이 위험한 상황이 있었습니다 실제로 바닥에 넘어진채로 벌벌떨고 눈물이 멈추지 않았어요. 현지 경호원분이 위험해 보였는지 절 뒤에서 번쩍 들어올리셔서 그것 또한 너무 당황스러웠고 놀랐습니다. 자꾸 뒤에서 옆에서 신체접촉에 긴장했던 상황인지라 질서라는건 찾아볼 수 없었고 기다려주셨던 분들중에 똑같이 넘어지고 다치신 분들도 있는 것 같아서 제 마음이 몹시 좋지 않네요. 그리고 고의는 아니었겠지만 신체일부 엉덩이며 가슴이며 자꾸 접촉하고 부딪히고 서로 잡아당기고.. 그 느낌도 참 당황스럽고 제정신을 못차리겠더라고요. 그래서 오랜만에 도착한 자카르타에서 좋은 모습으로 입국 할 수가 없었습니다. 기다려준 팬들에게 너무 미안하고 제발 우리 다치지않게 질서를 지켜줬으면 좋겠어요 그 누구보다 사랑 많고 정 많고 서로 이해 할 수 있는 우리팬들이니까 오늘일은 해프닝으로 생각할게요. 모두 다 상처받지 않길 바랄게

“Also, it wouldn’t have been intentional, but there was recurring contact with parts of my body, my behind and my chest, as well as colliding and pulling… I was taken aback by that and couldn’t get ahold of myself,” she added.

Taeyeon later apologized if she did not appear well to her Indonesian fans during that time and hoped that they did not get hurt.

Together with fellow members of SNSD Hyoyeon, Taeyon is scheduled to perform at the Countdown to Asian Games 2018 in Jakarta. The event marks the one year journey to the start of Asian Games, which will be held from Aug. 18 to Sep. 2, 2018 in Jakarta and Palembang, South Sumatera. (wir/asw)
