Tae Yeon of girl group So Nyeo Shi Dae has been receiving lots of heat recently after making some careless remarks on her radio show with Kangin about her recent trip to a local hospital to get a shot for her pain from flu.
On the 12th January episode of MBC4U Chin Chin Radio, Tae Yeon mentioned that she had been to a local hospital to get a shot because she was in pain from flu. But because all the doctors were away for lunch, the nurses couldn’t administer the shot without doctors’ approval. But Tae Yeon didn’t know about that and said that she almost wanted to create a scene. But she held it in and just left. Kangin then created even more mayhem by saying how irresponsible the nurses were and criticized that particular nurse for her actions.
Tae Yeon also made a seemingly harmless remark on the show after an Alicia Keys song, “For a black person, she’s really pretty.” But some netizens took it out of context and said it was racist, placing more heat on Tae Yeon.
It was only later on the show that Tae Yeon realized her mistake and the both of them apologized for their remarks. But by then, they have been slammed by doctors, nurses and netizens for their remarks. This prompted SM Entertainment to issue a statement to diffuse the situation, “They (Kangin and Tae Yeon) should have been more careful with their remarks. But there was no malicious intent there and they are deeply sorry about the whole incident.”
