Kim Tae-yeon (born March 9, 1989), better known by the mononym Taeyeon, is a South Korean singer and actress. She is a member of South Korean girl group Girls' Generation, its subgroup TTS, and SM the Ballad; she has also recorded singles for various television dramas and movies.

Early life[edit]

Taeyeon was born on March 9, 1989[2] in Jeonju, South Korea. Her family consists of her parents, an older brother[3][4] and a younger sister.

At the age of 13, Taeyeon discovered that she was "only talented at singing".[5] During her years in middle school, she was enrolled at the SM Academy and commuted from Jeonju to Seoul on every Sunday to receive her vocal training.[6][7] In 2004, her former vocal instructor Jung Sun Won, also known as The One, "wanted to acknowledge Tae-yeon's potential" and gave her a chance to be in his song "You Bring Me Joy".[8][9][10][11] Later on, she won the first place at the SM Youth Best Competition[12] and officially received a contract from SM Entertainment.[7] Tae-yeon continued her training under SM Entertainment and debuted as a part of Girls' Generation in 2007.[7][13][14] In 2008, Tae-yeon graduated from Jeonju Art High School and was awarded with the school's Lifetime Achievement Award.[15] During her pre-debut days, Tae-yeon was inspired to become an entertainer by BoA. The then-teenager "wanted to be like her and have activities in Japan and around the world", which later came true when Girls' Generation debuted in Japan in 2010.[16][17]

Career[edit]

2007–2011: Girls' Generation debut and solo activities[edit]

Taeyeon debuted as a member of the South Korean girl group Girls' Generation in July 2007. Due to the pressure of being the leader[18] of the group, she experienced sleepwalking for a period of time.[19][20] Aside from Girls' Generation's activities, Tae-yeon has also made several solo appearances. In 2008, Tae-yeon released two solo songs, "If" for the KBS2's drama Hong Gil Dong[21] and "Can You Hear Me" for the MBC's Beethoven Virus.[22] The song "If" became popular[23][24] on various online music charts, with Hankyung describing Tae-yeon as having "an exceptional voice and sad tone".[25] While "Can You Hear Me" received the YEPP Popularity Award at the 2008 Golden Disk Awards.[26] In a 2014 interview, Tae-yeon described the latter song as one her most difficult to sing, explaining that the introduction had to be delivered as if someone is talking, rather than singing.[27][28] On the same year, Taeyeon also had a duet titled "7989" with fellow SM artist, Kangta. It was featured on both Girls' Generation's self-titled album Girls' Generation, and Kangta's Eternity. In April 2008, Tae-yeon became a DJ on MBC Radio's program Kangin Taeyeon's Chin Chin Radio alongside fellow SM artist Super Junior's Kangin.[29] After Kangin left the program in April 2009, it was renamed to Taeyeon's Chin Chin Radio, as Tae-yeon became an independent host[30][31][32] and continued on until April 2010. She gained the nickname "DJ Taengoo" while hosting this program.[33]

In January 2009, Taeyeon appeared on the MBC's reality-variety show We Got Married and was featured with comedian Jeong Hyeong-don. They played a couple, portraying what life would be like if they were married. When this news was announced, it caused an uproar among South Korean netizens due to the 11-year age difference between the two.[34] She then participated in the song "S.E.O.U.L." (along with Super Junior and Girls' Generation) as an effort to promote tourism for the city of Seoul in South Korea.[35] In September 2009, Tae-yeon released the song "It's Love", a duet with Sunny for the MBC's drama Heading to the Ground.[36]

From February to August 2010, Tae-yeon became a co-host for the KBS2's idol talk show Win Win alongside 2PM's Wooyoung, Choi Hwa-jung, Kim Shin-young, and Kim Seung-woo.[37][38] On May 7, 2010, she had her musical debut as the main female role in Midnight Sun, which is based on the Japanese novel "Taiyō no uta" by Aya Denkawa.[39][40] The musical was about Kaoru Amane, a 17-year-old girl, who suffers from Xeroderma pigmentosum, which forbids her from going out during daytime. She keeps her hopes up by writing songs and singing every night at a train station; Tae-yeon received good press for her performance.[41] She also learned to play guitar for her performance.[14] When reflecting on her experience, Tae-yeon shared that she found musicals to be difficult, citing that her weak concentration made it hard for her to act and sing at the same time.[42][43] Music-wise, Tae-yeon released a duet song, "Like A Star", with her mentor The One,[44] as well as a solo song, "I Love You", for the SBS's drama Athena: Goddess of War.[45] The former song reached number one on Gaon's digital chart[46] and the latter peaked at number two.[47] In 2011, Tae-yeon had a duet, "Different", with Kim Bum-soo; the song reached number two on this chart as well.[48][49] The two singers met again at a concert two years later for another collaboration "Man and Woman".[50]

2012–present: TTS's debut and SM The Ballad[edit]

Tae-yeon and her band mate Seohyun were cast as voice actors for the Korean-dubbed versions of the computer-animated films Despicable Me (2010) and its sequel Despicable Me 2 (2013). They dubbed the voices for the characters Margo and her younger sister, Edith, respectively.[51][52] On March 28, 2012, after releasing the single "Missing You Like Crazy" for the MBC's melodrama The King 2 Hearts, the song reached number two on both Gaon's digital chart and Billboard's K-pop Hot 100.[53][54] The producer of the song, Park Hae-woon, described "Tae-yeon is an amazing singer. She fully understood the song in its entirety and expressed each detail very precisely...even though this song requires the lowest note that a female singer can produce, Taeyeon executed them perfectly."[55][56] The singer had previously declined the offer for the song due to her busy schedules with Girls' Generation. However, she made a promise to musical director Lee Pil-ho that they would collaborate again after working with him on the Beethoven Virus OST. He stated that he had not considered anyone else other than Tae-yeon to sing this song.[57][58] It was eventually picked as the most popular soundtrack of the year at the 2012 Seoul Drama Awards.[59] The same year, another song, "Closer", for the SBS's drama To the Beautiful You[60] managed to reach number seven on both charts.[61][62] In May 2012, Tae-yeon, along with fellow Girls' Generation members Tiffany and Seohyun, formed a subgroup called Girls' Generation-TTS (or TTS), releasing their first mini-album titled Twinkle. The subgroup has a different musical direction and style concept from Girls' Generation,[63] placing their focus on each member's vocal ability while the latter group emphasizes the songs and uniform group performances.[64] The three singers also became the hosts for the MBC's music show Music Core from February 2012 to April 2013.[65][66]

In January 2013, Tae-yeon returned to MBC as a one-day guest DJ for Shindong's program, Shimshimtapa, alongside with her bandmate Tiffany.[67] The two singers also had a duet "Lost in Love", which was featured in Girls' Generation's fourth Korean album, I Got a Boy. On March 13, 2013, Tae-yeon released the song "And One" for the SBS's drama That Winter, The Wind Blows.[18] It debuted at the top of the Billboard's K-pop Hot 100[68] and reached number two on Gaon's digital chart.[69] The song was written and composed by Kangta, expressing the emotions abounding star-crossed love.[70] On July 9, 2013, Tae-yeon lent her voice in the song "Bye" for the movie Mr. Go.[71] The song, this time, was not as successful on the charts.[72][73]

In February 2014, Taeyeon joined the ballad group SM the Ballad, initially formed by SM Entertainment in 2010.[74] On the group's 2nd album, she had a duet with Jonghyun for the title track "Breath"[75] as well as a solo song, "Set Me Free".[74] "Breath" was also the theme song of the Mnet's mini-drama Mimi. The song debuted within top 10 of the Gaon's digital chart and K-pop Hot 100.[76][77] In March 2014, Tae-yeon recorded the song "Colorful" for the JTBC's campaign "The World Is More Beautiful Because We're Different".[78][79] On May 30, 2014, she released "Love, That One Word" for the SBS's drama You're All Surrounded, having the song reaching top ten on the charts as well.[80][81] In the later half of the year, Taeyeon concentrated her activities with subgroup TTS. They released their sophomore EP, Holler, in September 2014; the album debuted at number 1 on both Billboard World Albums[82] and Gaon's weekly chart.[83] Tae-yeon took the responsibility for the album's song selection.[84] During the promotion period, the three singers were also featured in the reality show, The TaeTiSeo. The show took on a more close-up and personal side of the three singers apporach, revealing how they live their normal everyday lives.[85] Taeyeon stated "If it weren't for the passionate [Girls' Generation] members, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to sing."[86][87]

In February 2015, she was featured in "Shake that Brass", the title track of f(x)'s Amber's solo debut.[88] Amber revealed that she personally asked Taeyeon if she could feature in the song.[89]

Personal life[edit]

In June 2014, Tae-yeon and fellow S.M. artist Baekhyun of EXO were confirmed to have been in a relationship since February 2014.[90]
