SNSD TaeYeon, “I have stepped down from the leader role in the group”

‘National Girlgroup’ So Nyeo Shi Dae TaeYeon confessed that she had stepped down from the leader position of the group.

In the recent filming of SBS ‘Strong Heart’, TaeYeon revealed, “This is something I haven’t talked about before on broadcast. And you will get to hear it first on Strong Heart. I stepped down from the leader position in So Nyeo Shi Dae.”

She added, “It is not easy to play the role as the leader who is the collective of all opitions of 9 members.” revealing that it has been a tough job for her as leader of a 9-member group all this while.

Meanwhile, TaeYeon reveals, “Recently in our dorm, there is this event that confirms it..!” Regarding what went on between the So Nyeo Shi Dae members and what had caused TaeYeon to step down from the leader role, stay tuned to the show.

As many readers have commented, this is probably part of the script to the show. TaeYeon has confirmed it as a rumour on ChinChin radio.

  1. Oh it’s not true man -.- .
    I love Taeyeon :D .

  2. no way! :((

  3. leader or not its just a title
    we see SNSD as one not as a individual ^_^

  4. [...] reported earlier by Korean news reporter, there were talks about TaeYeon retiring from the leader position in So [...]

  5. Dudes, stepping down means no longer having that title. It means NOTHING about leaving the group.
    Taeyeon really thought about not being the leader anymore, but she was at a really low point and she has introduced herself as leader so this really is old news.
    It’s not like SNSD would fall apart if Taeyeon wasn’t their official leader. at one point other girls have had to assume the role of leader i.e. Yuri, TIffany, and Sooyoung because Taeyeon was not able to be there. Taeyeon has said herself that at any given point any of the other members could be the leader if necessary. The Grace doesn’t have a leader and they haven’t broken up. The leader is just to be the one voice of sanity.

  6. i hope she doesn’t leave.

    • She’s not leaving. it’s confirmed that she’s not. and even if she did step down as leader, it doesn’t even matter. The members of SNSD were pretty much equal in leading each other anyways.

  7. THERE’S ONLY A FEW LEADERS WHO ARE VERY WELL KNOWN AND CONTRIBUTE WELL TO AND FOR THE GROUP…GD, SUNYE, YUNHO, LEETEUK. MAJOR RESPECT FOR THEM…

    • LOL ..

      • So just because Taeyeon is (according to you) isn’t “well known” that makes her less of a leader?
        How about leaders from lesser known groups? They fail as leaders too? Taeyeon does contribute to her group. She wants them to be more popular than her, so she usually doean’t talk on variety shows and let the other members talk. That’s an unselfish leader right there.

      • TAEYEON DOES CONTRIBUTE, BUT NOT AS MUCH AS THOSE MENTIONED ABOVE. I MEAN I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST TAEYEON…JUST THE FACT THAT SHE ISN’T REALLY WELL KNOWN AS SOMEONE WHO LEADS VERY WELL UNLIKE GD, SUNYE, YUNHO AND LEETEUK WHO GETS PRAISED A LOT FOR BEING LEADERS.

  8. Lol But Super junior eeteuk has 13 members,how difficult is that for him??

    • i understand taeyeon, girls always have catfights and jealousy and all this bonding session through talking/gossiping and i think taeyeon find it burdensome cuz she also want to have personal life of her own.

      with suju, didn’t leeteuk said before that his duties don’t go beyond personal things. He is there to talk well and gather the group together. Nothing more, nothing less. Its sme that is the leader of all things.

  9. LOL at all the people freakin out in allkpop and other website. ROFL

  10. maybe she said she is still SNSD leader after she filimed it because it wasnt broadcasted as of yet, why they make her say such a line as apart of the script. we’ll just have to wait and see.

  11. People, read the article. It’s NOT true (yet).

    I can see it happening, but Taeyeon is a little strong one, so she’ll work through it. Then again, rumors start for a reason.

  12. [...] SNSD TaeYeon, “I have stepped down from the leader role in the group” (K Bites) So Nyeo Shi Dae ‘Gee’ MV crowned the MV of the year! [...]

  13. why is everyone tripping??? She ain’t stepping down sheesh

  14. [...] SNSD TaeYeon, “I have stepped down from the leader role in the group” « K Bites. [...]

  15. LOL people think she’s leaving SNSD?! nothing in the article says that! Plus, this is just all a ploy to get people to watch the episode. SNSD fans should already know that she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon & the rest of you k-pop fans shouldn’t be so gullible xD

  16. no she did not… maybe she just said it as a joke or to tease but she really didn’t mean that.
    i still remember when a guy asked the member who should be a leader and everyone was like ME! and taeyeon was like hey! especially fany… she asked her do you think before you answer? and she said no, not really..LOL
    they record the show a long time ago and someone who recently listen to chin chin heard taeyeon said ” Hello, I’m SNSD leader, Taeyeon.”
    no matter what taeyeon decision she always be the leader and she thought that all the members are able to lead themselves either. so no worry.
    KID LEADER FIGHTING!!!
    FOREVER SNSD!

  17. People should know that this issue is OVER like 2 weeks ago in Korea.. Taeyeon already mentioned this on Chin Chin radio that she is still SNSD’s leader.. No one is stepping down AND definitely no one is leaving the group..

    The article was just made up bu the Korean writer to make people watch this episode.. Koreans even ignore this matter, only the international fans are making this BIG..

  18. TAETAE the pillar of SNSD (:

  19. I think the new leader should be “Yoona” as she is really outstanding nowadays.

  20. Don’t think she’ll leave SNSD tho i haven’t see her playing as that leader role. As in even as a leader, i haven’t seen her being the leader kind much. Ok i’m confused with myself now.

  21. I never knew that strong heart make the guest use scripts. I thought it was just talking

  22. Omona..
    I dont think so any of SNSD member can replace her as the leader..
    For one to be a leader in the group..they have their own unique…
    Luckily it just a rumour…

  23. Lol, this is old. Don’t worry SNSD fans, many Korean news articles like to blow things out of proportion to get people to read their articles + watch the show (ratings $$$)
    Tae Yeon introduced herself as SNSD’s leader in some radio show AFTER Strong Heart was recorded. So no need to worry.

  24. WAIT WHAT?!

  25. Kid leader will never give up her leading role :D
    even she always got bullied by the members, every member of SNSD respect her as their leader,,and they always do whatever the leader said to do :D
    I do believe on Leader Taengoo =D

  26. SHE STOPS BEING LEADER?

    DOES THAT MEAN SHE LEAVES SNSD?

    DOES THAT MEAN SHE GETS KICKED OUT OF KOREA?

    IS SNSD GOING TO HAVE ONE LESS MEMBER?

    ARE WE GOING TO HAVE PROTESTS AGAIN?

    ARE WE GOING TO HAVE BOYCOTTS AGAIN?

  27. Nothing changes, she’ll still be most known for being snsd’s kid leader taengoo. :D

    Anywayay, just for fun. Given that she has stepped down, who do you think should take the leader position? For fun only, peeps. I’d most definitely choose Jessica. Or Yuri. :D haha

  28. it’s NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT true….

    Taeyeon onnie…..has been confirmed….and she still enjoying become the leader of SNSD…

    The news just want make it big problem
    LOL

    Taeyeon Onnie won’t replaced by other include YOONA

  29. sadface.

    ive always seen every member of snsd as equals but its just strange. change is a weird thing, no more calling her leader taengoo ):

    shes still a leader at heart though, regardless of label/title or not

  30. Hmm, maybe Yoona will step up now..? Who would lead the group now?

    this is the very first kpop drama that’s been from a girl group this year! WOW!

    -Rome

  31. the leader does not help in anything …
    in the past at least leaders have something up their sleeves
    nowadays i dun even find the role useful…
    -.-

  32. AHHHH noooo…whats gonna happen now???????

  33. OMG !! how snsd will going to be after this?? ah bad luck was everywhere in this year. hope fr a better year in 2010.

  34. Nooooo :(

  35. Next step… is to leave the group, for a solo career.

  36. Ommo. It’s confirmed and still shocking.

  37. It’s a false rumour ..
    She already confirmed it on Chin2 .. =D

    • LOL people take this seriously ..
      it is NOT TRUE ..

      It’s part of their script in the show ..
