Update: Radio Clip Added.
2 years ago (and a little bit more), our kko kko ma leader became a dj for MBC’s Chinhan Chingu radio. At the time, it was just another radio show. Now, it’s one of the top in Korea. She came, she conquered, and now she’s leaving.
With Taengoo’s contract with MBC coming to an end, there was much speculation as to whether or not she would continue djing for the station. It has now been officially announced that Taeyeon will be withdrawing from her djing activities, and her last show on the station will be on the 25th of April. SM entertainment responded by saying that Taeyeon will get more time to rest and prepare for her upcoming musical, as well as overseas promotions in the near future.
When MBC hired Tae Tae, I honestly don’t think they had expected her to be this good. Sure, she was the leader of girls generation, but this was 2 years ago when they were still promoting Kissing You and Baby Baby; when SNSD had not yet completely flipped the industry upside down. Normally, there are two djs on a radio show. If one of them happens to be sick or has other schedules, the other one can still do the show by themselves. But for an entire year after Kangin left, Tae didn’t have anyone to do that.
Everyday, irregardless of her busy schedule or condition of her health, she was there. Her dedication to what she does is unparalleled, and has certainly paid off. In the relatively short amount of time that she was there, she’s made chinchin what it is today: one of Korea’s most listened to radio shows. If your company wanted to promote an artist, then you would want them to be guests on Chin Chin. Not only has she won awards for her work, but the numbers prove what she’s done; numbers don’t lie. Whether you’re a fan or an anti, you can’t disagree that the success of Chin Chin was a result of Taeng’s commitment.
Chinhan Chingu. Best/Good Friends radio. Is there a more fitting name for her show? While many radios call their viewers a ‘family’, you can tell that Taeng DJ truly does love her (third) family. And with her dorky laughs, naive personality, and friendly aura, who wouldn’t love her back? Both (if I’m not mistaken) of the PDs for Chin Chin certainly do, even going out of their way to defend her when controversy arises.
While it’s sad that many won’t be able to tune into heaven any more at 8pm KST, it’s also relieving to know that our beloved leader will get more time to rest. However, with Win Win, musical preparations, Sunny, as well as album promotions on her schedule, she is still one of the busiest members in SNSD. As fans, we couldn’t be more proud of what Taeng has been able to accomplish and can only hope for her happiness. Maybe one day, we’ll be graced with hearing Taengoo’s lovely voice on the radio again. But right now, the airwaves sure do seem a lot more silent…
Update: This is a small clip of today’s chin chin. It’s not subbed, but it seems that Taeng shed some tears over leaving chin chin soon.
Another shoutout to procrastinatoress for helping me with this post. =]
Aww its soo sad that Taengoo won’t be DJing anymore but at least she’ll be able to rest more
I’ve never been able to hear the radio show but I feel so sad…this is almost strange.
It’s a good thing Tae will be able to have some rest now, though !
Im so proud of her, and her committment to chinchin which is now one of the hottest radio shows today!
not only is she the busiest person in snsd, i dont think there is a doubt that she is the busiest person in kpop… so, although i will miss all the things chinchin (w/ taeng dj) allowed us to enjoy (esp. gonna miss the lives & the dorky selcas TT_TT), im glad shes getting a rest and moving forward to conquer even bigger & better things! Taeyeon fighting! besides shes happy doing her musical and thats all that matters right? a happy taeyeon = a happy sone 😀
Taeng DJ Forever ❤
btw.. i believe not loving her is ALREADY illegal XD
Correction: “CAKED is what you get when you’re awesome.”
haha. yeah i am so proud of Taeyeon. Her dream is to become a DJ and yeah she did it! even how busy she is or maybe she fall sick, she will still make it to come at the radio station. Though, it may be a sad news that she’s leaving. But i am still glad how much this kid leader had put all her hard work in it to become the most popular DJ and most listener radio station.
& it great that she can have more rest now. While she’s packing up for her upcoming musical.
I’m excited that they will persue overseas promotions in the future, maybe I can see SNSD in person!
Congrats Taeyeon on a wonderful 2 years at MBC!
I listened to the 12 part show she did w the rest of the girls today it was awesome. Other then that I’ve never heard the show ( being from the USA). Still I am sad.
>< gonna miss taeng dj, best of luck to her other schedules! and rest well=)
Taengoo is really amazing no doubt about that making chin chin what it is today, really sad i wont be able to hear her anymore, but whats important is her health.
it’s a little bit sad :(…but she will have more time to rest
Taengoo’s talent and passion really drove her to be successful as a DJ (one of her dreams). Although it would a long time without Taeng DJ, im sure she will be back. All the best for her upcoming activities! musical etc.
Chinchin was always Taeyeon’s ‘THING’, and now that she’s letting it go, it really is quite sad…
But certain things must be let go if one is to move on. ^^ I wish her luck with the musical, the concert tour and all her other endeavors in the future.
Considering her skill and popularity, I don’t doubt we’ll be hearing her on the ladio again in the future. It may not be soon, but I’ll wait till then, haha.
Great job w/ this Tee. Loved it. ^^
Hyoyeon is going to be guesting on chinchin on the 24th btw. Heheh, I look forward to it.
I’m gonna miss seeing BabyTae on ChinChin’s Bora. Still….i hope this will allow her to rest more.
Cheer up Taengoo.
We will always be loving you.
With my wholehearted love,
She does her job well and i believe she need more rest as i heard SNSD is going for Asia trips to perform.
aaww ill miss the taengoo moments on chin chin specially the taengsquirrel…. 😦
she’s just too adorable in that radio studio…<33
anyways, well i think its all good..she has to prepare for some of her extra activities and she needs all the rest she can get.. ^_^
wish you all the best kid leada!
i will miss taeyeon in chin-chin radio!!
she is my favorite korean dj and singer of snsd!!1
i love you taeyeon!!
hope we will meet someday!!!
this is the first post I have made in comment of an SNSD fansite as I think this is one of the most important decisions my most favorite member has to decide for her future. It certainly is sad news that she has to leave DJing as I heard that it was her dream (correct me if im wrong) to be a DJ. But she has achieved it and now has to leave it behind for the sake of her 8 unnies and time for a much deserved rest. As I myself have not tuned to chinchin before, I will be certain to tune in on the 25th April even though I don’t understand Korean. As long as TaeTae is happy, I believe we shall support her in the decisions she makes. 🙂
