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.
