It’s been reported that Chinese SONES at KTYCHINA, a well-known Taeganger fanbase, has bought a star for Taeyeon and registered it as “Taeng Star”. The star that they bought the rights to belongs to the constellation of Pisces because Taeyeon’s zodiac sign is Pisces.
So legit and epic! I wonder how Taeyeon reacted (if she already found out) or will react to this. SONEs from KTYCHINA are so sweet!! (;
It makes me think about the lyrics from Taeyeon’s ‘Like A Star’:
You’re my everything to me
Please shine like a star in the sky
You are my only love

i’d love to see all the members have their own stars named after them…that would be a great 4th year anniversary present. some SONES are already starting the campaign…
omg, that’s so awesomeeeee
I know this is legit. I’ve been hearing radio ads for the Global Star Registry for years now, and I’ve actually been to their web site (I’m kind of an astronomy buff). The picture of the certificate looks identical to the one on their website: http://www.globalstarregistry.com/us/starkit
Taeng Star FTW!
It’s not legit
Taeyeon is a star!!!
Always shine brightly no matter how dark the period is 🙂
wow ~ really nice present to Kid Leader !! Hope TaeYeon will reply with a video or something ^^.
Yup it’s legit. A lot of fans had been giving a star for their idols. I had always dreamt of giving a star to someone I’d consider special 😉
And YES I think we should give them each a star for their 4th Anniversary 😀 Let’s go for it SONEs !!

eventho the star naming business is a scam overall. but i do think it is nice gesture from the fans. 😀
Sadly this is most likely a scam, either the certificate or the company itself. Generally star naming has no official status whatsoever, but this is even worse. There is no star at Pisces 23 29 02 recorded in IAU.
Well legally speaking it is not a scam, it is named and being recorded in their registry. But you are correct that it is not registered with the IAU and they’re the only organization authorized to name stars that astronomy professionals actually use. But it is the thought behind it that counts, it fortunately does not cost a large sum of money and the effort should be applauded.
whoa so cool.. the other girls should have one as well.
tayeon, SHINE LIKE SUPERSTAR, SHINING STAR, SUPERSTAR….haha…
its so cool the chinese sones did it…
SNSD, fighting! ^^
WOW WTF LOL this is quite odd, but omg… taeng star? faints in astonishment *
aww that’s so sweet of the fans, haha taeyeon will shine like a star! ^3^
this is super duper sweet. C-sones\ taegangers… are jjang 🙂
Haha you can buy them from the shops too I have one but I never filled it out.
eek thats awsome! so nice for fans to buy star for taeng! ^^
If I had the money I’d name a whole galaxy after Soo Young!
Terrez is using Dave's computer said:
Dang, it must have cost a fortune to register your name onto a significant object wandering aimlessly throughout the cosmos.
this is by far the coolest thing a fan can do for their Idol,
dont worry Sunny ! I’ll rename the Sun after you! ^_^
Legit or not, as has been mentioned before, it’s the thought that counts and I’m sure Taeyeon will be so touched (and the rest, so envious ;)) when she finds out about this gesture from her Chinese fans 😀 !!! Living out the lyrics to “Like A Star” 😀 😀 😀 , Ha !
OHMYGOSH IT WAS REGISTERED ON TAEYEON’S BIRTHDAY!!! HOW THOUGHTFUL!!! ❤ TAENG STAR<3
If I could, I would buy the universe for SNSD<3
But the universe? Ehh…. I guess it’s simply impossible cuz no non-sone will let you. 😦 But it’ll be great, though.
this is the best post ever
A BIG WOW!!! that is epic indeed.. now i should buy a really powerful telescope.. taeyeon ah!!!!
tis is really sweet !!!
I could really care less is the star naming business is fake or not,
What matters is that this is such an extremely caring and sweet gesture from China SONEs
Buying a STAR for Taengoo noona, a STAR
Wow, that is really special
VERY AWESOME AND DAEBAK!!!!
I do question how they’re able to register a star for 1989 when it is 2011….
Wahhh, this S♥NE is JJANG!! 😀 😀 😀
Really sweet of him/her.
I bet it was expensive.
But SNSD’s got you burning holes in your wallet. xD
But we’re not complaining.
