[Breaking] Taeyeon Manhandled During Security Lapse at Angel Festival !
On 17th April 2011, Girls’ Generation performed at the Angel Price Music Festival, organised jointly by Lotte World and Coupang.
During the event, an unfortunate incident happened, as the hired security was lax and did not perform up to standards. Near the end of the ‘Run Devil Run’ stage, Taeyeon was dragged off-stage by an unidentified individual who, according to fanaccounts, appeared from back-stage. The other members were also caught unawares and tried to stop the man, to no avail. The man was detained by security guards after the concert ended.
Despite the sudden and shocking circumstances, Taeyeon kept calm throughout and even reassured fans that she was alright after the incident was contained. The girls went on to continue to perform ‘Hoot’ and ‘Gee’ with smiles, showing their highly professional attitude. Leader Taeyeon in particular showed that she was not affected by the incident, with fantaken pictures and videos of her showing a bright smile in the subsequent performances.
