Aside from her beautiful face and singing, is Taeng’s great personalty. Let’s take the opportunity to talk about her personality that has made her such an incredible and lovable person in celebration of her birthday.
Since her favorite number is 9 (i wonder if you guys know why this is? :] quizzing Sones’ knowledge haha), I’ll elaborate on just 9 traits.
From what many of us can see, Taeng is:
She has a pure heart or you can describe her as having a heart of gold like MAMA TAENG had before in an exclusive interview. Not only is Taeyeon caring, especially toward her members,
but she is also giving toward others.
- SNSD Fact: Taengoo once cried because she felt bad that while the members were eating on the table, the staff were eating on the floor.Source: Soshified
- In a fanaccount, in which someone visited Taeyeon’s parent’s glasses shop, Taeyeon’s mother talked about her conversation with her daughter regarding an SM Town Live Concert in Seoul:
“It’s exhausting to work so hard singing and dancing on stage when the weather’s hot, isn’t it?”
“But we are able to go backstage and rest where it’s cool…
The fans have to keep watching where it’s hot…
Why would I be exhausted?… the fans are probably exhausted…”

In Korean, ‘Ahjumma’ is usually what someone would call a female who is married or old like in their 30s or above. Taeyeon is totally ahjumma-style and to many, she’s nicknamed ‘Jummataeng’; she acts like one and she talks like one.
(at 1:16 in the video)
She even laughs like one.
We’ve witnessed this when she took on solo activities, which she was able to manage them on her own successfully.
- Certainly, we all prefer her together with the other 8 members, but when Taeyeon promotes her solos and sings on stage by herself, she never fails to manage it on her own. Usually when she releases a solo track, they quickly top the music charts–‘If’, ‘Can You Hear Me’, and ‘I Love You’.
When Super Junior’s Kangin, her co-host on ‘Chin Chin’ left, she continued to host the radio show by herself 2 hours everyday for over a year (considering that Kangin’s last day hosting was the 19th of April 2009 and Taeyeon’s was the 25th of April 2010). She was able to hold it down!
She’s not afraid of trying new things.
Whether it is jumping off cliffs and diving into the water,
Or bungee-jumping for the first time.
She’s not afraid to stand forth to confront things either.
If you recalled, with the issue of her ear-piece during her performance of ‘My Life Would Suck Without You’ last year, she bravely voiced her opinion about Music Bank live on broadcast.
I want to give a round of applause for all the artists out there because they are working so hard and doing so well so I hope that music bank will provide all the artists with the best environment so they can perform their best.
Many would agree that she is one very passionate person in terms of music.
- In an interview, her vocal mentor, The One, commented on Taeyeon’s dedication when the two were recording for ‘Like A Star’:
When recording overran to past 11:30 at night, I told Taeyeon to hurry home, mistakenly thinking that she was still a High School student. But Taeyeon has already matured into a respectable lady; she said that she would stay until we’d finished recording
Source: firstname.lastname@example.org + 최나영 email@example.com
In general, though, she’s also works hard and puts in effort in everything she does. We can’t forget that last year, she had to host ‘Chin Chin’ by her herself everyday and MC on the variety show, ‘Win Win’, during the girls’ ‘Run Devil Run’ promotions.
- At one point, she became sick due to her busy schedule, but still tried to come to the studio to record ‘Win Win’ only to leave because she was too sick. In that episode that Taeyeon was suppose to film, but wasn’t present along with the MCs, the other MCs stated:
TaeYeon will not take part in the filming due to fatigue and flu from her busy schedule.” Choi HwaJung also added, “TaeYeon came down for the filming but she was not in a good condition that she was even crying. Since it is hard for her to do the filming, she went back.
Taeyeon is usually seen optimistic, especially when it comes to her short height.
Bullies People tall like Sooyoung may tease her about her height, but she still thinks she can grow; “The hospital said so. ‘Your growth hormones have not stopped yet! You’re so lucky you might never need the top HGH products for sale, ever!'”
Aside from being cute with her aegyo, she can be fierce too. Unlike her fellow members, she i’snt one to be known for her S-line, but that doesn’t stop her from having a sexy side to her.
As the birthday post about the ‘Not Your Ordinary Leader’ from yesterday pointed out, Taeyeon has a kinky side to her as well. I’ll let the gif and videos speak for themselves.
Saving best for last! Tying with her aegyo that she says she hates, but hypocritically does naturally, this very trait is of course, something we can’t forget about her personalty. Even though she’s the oldest out of all the members, she could be considered the most bubbly and adorable member. Why? She’s an ultimate dork!
All these personality traits are the few that make her the special person she is. Hopefully, her personalty won’t ever change.. And with this, I’d like to share a fanvid I’ve made in celebration of the lovable kid leader’s birthday. (It’s my first time making a fan-video so I apologize if it’s not that great)
(youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jf842qUb_50 ; the actual audio was blocked for this and had to be replaced unfortunately)
On the 9th, Taeng will be officially turning 22 (23 in Korea). Happy birthday, Kim Taeyeon! Let’s all wish her a happy birthday and please remember to check back tomorrow for another Taeng birthday post!

Beautiful post 🙂 Thank you♥
But is her birthday tomorrow? I think it is 9th March, on Wednesday…Wikipedia and Soshified says that.
Yup. Snsdkorean has a tradition of having three birthday posts leading up to her actual bday 😀
An absolutely amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing post!!! And the video was FANTASTIC!!!! I love Taeyeon, she’s such a great leader, she has such a unique, funny, dorky personality and she’s an incredible big sister and friend to her 8 younger sisters.
Taeyeon-unnie, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! 😀

Great post, great video, very well done. It really conveyed exactly how I feel about Taeyeon!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAEYEON and MANY MANY HAPPY RETURNS AND MAY ALL OF YOUR WISHES COME TRUE!!!!!
Happy brithday, Taeyeon! I wish u the best!!!
Great collection and Nice Work ! ” Happy Birthday Tae ” May U stay strong,healthy and pretty 4ever.
“(considering that Kangin’s last day hosting was the 19th of April 2008 and Taeyeon’s was the 25th of April 2009).”
Shouldn’t Kangin’s be 2009 and Tae’s be 2010…?
Because I remember Kangin was still there during ‘Gee’ promotion and Tae’s last broadcast was during ‘RDR’ promotions.
Tomorrow’s her birthday already?
Right now it’s the 7th in Korea, so tomorrow would be the 8th.
So shouldn’t her birthday be in 2 more days?
I seriously love the birthday traditions. ♥_♥
You guys are so JJANG for doing this.
It’s just such a fun read. 😀
I know why Tae’s favorite number is 9! 😀
1) There’s 9 members in SNSD.
2) Her birthday is on March 9th.
3) Her nickname is Taengoo and ‘goo’ means 9.
Haha, sorry, I just had to do that! 😀
It was in a behind the scenes video for ‘Oh!’.
I can’t find it though. O.o
Happy early birthday Kim TaeYeon!!
SARANGHAE!!!! :DD <333

That was absolutely fantastic! And the video at the end was the icing on a already BEAUTIFULLY decorated cake! I want to pick up Tae and give her BIIIG hug!!
GREAT POST, ferrerorocher9 😉 !!! Here’s wishing our adorable, dorky, lovable, aweet, sensitive, hardworking, sexy, beautiful “kid leader” a Very Blessed 23rd (22nd in the rest of the world ;)) Birthday 😀 😀 😀 !!! May the Good Lord watch over you always and keep you safe 🙂 !!! Hope you like the presents I’d sent you 😉 and use them well 😀 !!!
That water jumping was pretty cool. spinning like that. also the singing on the “cliff” and all.
and, like, you should have apologized for the video being too good. this, like, unchecked awesomeness will not stand, man.
anyway. (I don’t like the song, but) of course, nice selection of videos, and i liked your commitment to sticking with images… i mean that the clips aren’t all <2sec. Also, that part where Taeyeon starts running away from Sunny after pulling her shirt, that's timed nicely with the music (in particular, there's, like a swell or something where she starts to pick up speed), just there's this free moment in the music and watching her run, it comes together.
Happy Birthday Taenggo!!! Hehehe…
This post really awesome. Taeyeon so adoreable person! Wish the best for you birthday gift and always get the best for SNSD.
wowww..you made it really well ferrerorocher9…
all the 9 traits are truly describe who OMMATAENG is..
if there are 10 traits, BYUNTAE/PERVERT would be her 10th..hahaha
she is truly adorable, and what i like bout TAEYEON is she didnt make her aegyo..
.it comes naturally, without her made a hard work for it..
Happy Birthday, KIM TAE YEON..
may 22nd (23rd in Korea) bring more luck and happiness to you…<3<3
Happy Birthday, Kim TaeYeon! ❤

may i know kim taeyeon has facebook or msn or not?hope 2 get 2 know more abt her…realy love her voice and song alot…and her frenly and cheerrful personality as well…she is so sweet…
on 9th she turn 22 . BUT why 23 in Korea ?
In Korea when you come out of your mother’s womb, they already count your age as 1 year. So their ages are a year advanced than western age system.
What a lovely article. As expected from a great editor. Thank you for this! I seriously loved all those 9 aspects, that made me love her so much. 🙂
Taengoo, saengil chukha hamnida! 🙂
