Girls' Generation's Taeyeon Reveals How the Pandemic Is Affecting Her Career

Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon is getting candid about her feelings amid the pandemic.

The 31-year-old South Korean idol spoke openly during an Instagram Live over the weekend about her sadness and frustration.

“I’ve started a live broadcast to talk with those who have been diligently practicing social distancing,” she explained, via Soompi on Tuesday (September 1).

“COVID-19 has gotten so serious that I think the [current Level 2] social distancing rules have become Level 2.5 distancing. I don’t think we’re at Level 3 yet, but I honestly think we should consider them the same thing.”

“This [pandemic] isn’t getting any better, and it’s such a serious matter. There are so many people who are sick. Isn’t this affecting our daily lives? I think we’re beginning to fall apart. So I really hope everyone practices social distancing,” she went on to say.

“I think that as the COVID-19 pandemic worsens, we have less and less that we can do. Isn’t that really annoying?”

She revealed that she has spent her time at home watching dramas and movies, making bracelets and playing with her dog Zero.

“Honestly, aren’t we all the same? We practice social distancing, we’re bored at home, we can feel lethargic, and we miss being with people. In a world that is already lonely without the COVID-19 pandemic, now we have to socially distance…people may think that staying at home is nice for me since I’m a homebody, but above all, I’m a singer, so I also want to sing and perform at concerts,” she said.

“Once I think the pandemic is starting to go away, it just gets worse. It’s true that I’m starting to get exhausted.”

She also revealed how this is now affecting her career.

“I think working people, not just me, are feeling a sense of loss and emptiness. I feel like I’ve lost my job now that I can’t perform. I really almost started crying just now. I’ll be waiting for the day I can meet everyone again.”

A superstar K-pop girl group recently opened up about how they’ve been working on their album in quarantine.

K-Pop Star Jessica Jung Writes Young Adult Novel 'Shine' Based on Her Life Story

Jessica Jung is breaking out on the literary scene!

The 30-year-old former Girls’ Generation member and K-pop superstar wrote a Young Adult novel called Shine, acquired earlier in 2019 in a two-book deal by Simon Pulse, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing.

Shine tells the story of Rachel Kim, a Korean-American teenager in training to become the next major K-Pop star.

The novel is set to be released in hardcover, eBook and audio in the U.S. and is scheduled for release in fall of 2020, with a sequel to follow in 2021.

The novel is currently being developed alongside Glasstown Entertainment, co-founded by author and screenwriter Lauren Oliver and author and editor Lexa Hillyer, for film and television at ACE Entertainment, the team behind Netflix‘s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.

“With Shine, I wanted to tell a big, fun, escapist story that also examines in-depth, behind-the-scenes aspects of the K-Pop world. My goal was to tell a transparent, candid story—in a way that sometimes fiction does best,” Jessica says.

“This is an incredible opportunity to help tell Jessica’s story across multiple platforms, and to launch a debut that’s as sparkly and enchanting as its creator,” says Glasstown’s President of Publishing Lexa Hillyer.

During the chat, Taeyeon answered various questions, including “Are you doing well?” to which she replied “No.”

When asked about how to get over a slump, she wrote: “I’m not good at getting over it, so I just live in a slump.”

Another fan wrote: “It’s okay if you don’t post anything on Instagram, it’s okay just to communicate with us on Stories like this.” (Taeyeon‘s last post was on May 31 on Instagram.)

To that, she responded: “I’ve been sick for the past while. Please understand why I’ve refrained [from posting on social media]. Thank you and I’m sorry.”

Another fan wrote: “Is this bipolar disorder? Tsk tsk.”

She wrote back: “No, I am suffering from depression. I am working hard to get better through treatment with antidepressants. Whether it’s depression or bipolar disorder, please don’t ‘tsk’ and treat people disrespectfully. They are all patients who are suffering.”

Other fans attempted to cheer up the singer: “You are someone who gives me so much strength and comfort, and I’m sad that I can’t help comfort you in return,” one said.

“No, you do give me a lot of comfort. That’s why I like talking with fans, I get a lot of strength from communicating with you. Thank you…I’m so thankful that you listen to my music and seek me out. I gain strength from you every day,” she added.

“I decided to talk to you today because I needed to pep myself up. I feel like I’m being nourished by all of you. I’m going to be okay. I’m sorry for making you worry, but I think that this is another way for us to get to know each other better. I will take better care of myself. For the fans who deserve all the good things in the world,” she wrote in another post.

We are sending good thoughts Taeyeon‘s way. (English translations via Soompi.)
