First off, a quick apology from the team to readers of this blog. Earlier this week we had released a post about Taeyeon’s cousin. After some more research into the topic, we feel that the source we used may have been inaccurate. I’ll quote what our staffer greeentee said. Please read 🙂
I stalked and talked (briefly) w/ the almighty bossa747 and he told me he had asked a Sone very close w/ Taeyeon, but this person didn’t know any cousin like her. It seems he also suspects that it’s not real because Taeyeon is very protective of her personal life/family members and isn’t likely to post something like that on such a public website. Thinking about it, I’d have to agree with him based on what we know about Tae Tae’s personality.
Furthermore, the pics mentioned don’t seem to be on the chin chin’s website (which they supposedly were), as mentioned by one of our commentors, as well as bossa in one of his tweets. This makes me think they weren’t ever up there at all. And in my opinion, if this incident of Taeyeon posting it really did happen, Korea probably would’ve spazzed about it already and we would have more information about Hany, which doesn’t seem to be the case.
Nothing is 100% confirmed but we feel the need to tell all the readers that the girl is likely NOT related to Tae. 🙂 Even though it seems like only the international community is making a bigger deal out of this, it’s still important to update you all so you don’t get too.. excited. =P
At the same time, while we don’t believe Hany is related to our kko kko ma leader, we hope no damage is done to Hany’s reputation. The pictures of her are real, and we do not believe that she’s involved in the mix-up (for publicity reasons, etc). We apologize for the confusion and we promise we usually don’t throw out fake articles! Thanks everyone.
Edit by Procrastinatoress – As the writer of the Hany-related article on snsdkorean, I want to personally apologize to the readers for not thoroughly doing my research before posting. As Boss said, we try out best to give our readers reliable and accurate news here, and I really hope I haven’t tarnished the reputation of snsdkorean. I’ll work harder in the future.

it’s ok…before i read the article from you yesterday, i already read it to the other blog…
That’s fine, great even – this means that there could be a Jessica look-a-like out there as well who isn’t famous! I’ll, er, keep my hopes up!
btw, hany is still hot 🙂
wow that girl really looks like Taengoo though!
but of course. no one can replace Taengoo in my heart ❤
well, whoever posted it certainly fooled me and a lotta people. the white bear thing was a really convenient and kinda crazy coincidence, though! coupled with the fact that Hany looks a LOT like Taengoo, i guess someone saw that and took the opportunity to make a sweet hoax of it
and you know, if someone does pop up saying again that it IS tae’s cousin, i’d likely believe them again 🙂 gah i don’t know who to believe….i wonder if tae even knows about this lol
The big white bear is apparently quite popular with Korean celebrities, so it’s not too big of a coincidence.
But yes, based on Hany’s looks we were also quite convinced that it was Taeyeon’s cousin. Our writers have no intention of spreading false information though, so we apologize. If a more credible source comes up telling us that it is her, we’ll let you know. =P
aigoo, if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. apologies for tipping. still, the resemblance is still kinda freaky…
honestly I dont care about that girl.
all my attention goes to 9 beautiful angels ^^
kid leader Taeyeon jjang <3333
I also tough it was wierd that Taeyeon would post pics of her cousin just like that on a public site, but since they looked a like i really didn’t tought much about it.
Well….the resemblance btw this girl (Hany) and BabyTae is uncanny! i really thought they were related.
Oh well…..everyone makes mistakes. Thanks for the official apology and clearup! That’s the mark of a responsible blogger! 😀 Kudos to the team!
it’s ok. for me there’s no harm done. but if you feel like apologizing for giving us updates which are, according to you, not thoroughly researched, then i’m totally accepting the apology. please continue to give us updates, because we appreciate it~ kkk
and besides, she really looks like taengoo, right? so i wouldn’t mind if she really is taengoo’s family. haha! thanks for the clarifications though~ ❤
aw. well, it’s alright. but i do wonder who that girl was and who posted up those pictures.
hello everyone!! i’m the one who wrote the articles..i like reading articles and news on daum and naver..and shared it to you guyz in other site..but this time my topic was false..i sincerely apologize on it..and because of that i delete this thread..and not making thread anymore on her..i am barely sorry,i just got it to the naver who also had its forum..as you too guys i was fooled too,and believe that she was taeyeon cousin,but believe me this girl,is also related to taeyeon,but not cousin,kinda relatives and so on but far away..but not as barely as part of taeyeon circle of family..
so sorry to you all..my biggest apologize
i never believed they were cousins. the pics that taeng supposedly uploaded of her cousin with the bear were photoshoot pics. it was so obvious. they weren’t pics taeng or her cousin took. plus all the pics were photoshoot pics lol.
yes, but there’s nothing wrong with using photoshoot pics if her ‘cousin’ was already a model.
Hm…I start to wonder “Is that Hany really exist?” I mean, it could be a fake picture….someone could make it, publish it and say that she’s Taengoo’s cousin, right?
I really love how Taengoo protect her family…she never shares anything about her family members…and I think we should respect her privacy….she wants her family to have a peace life…I’ll do that too If I’m her…hoho…Love Taengoo always~~!! XD
