Girls’ Generation‘s Taeyeon is a K-Pop icon, but that doesn’t stop her from being a supportive and enthusiastic fan of other groups. Now that she is a member of Girls On Top along with BoA, Girls’ Generation‘s Hyoyeon, and members of Red Velvet and aespa, we are seeing some extremely wholesome moments that prove just how supportive Taeyeon is of the younger idols.
Recently, Taeyeon posted an Instagram story of aespa’s Winter and Karina during dance practice for Girls On Top’s “Step Back”—and its caption had fans feelings soft. In the video, Winter and Karina are stretching together, and Taeyeon captioned it, “I like them so much, I’m in trouble.”

To be fair, Winter and Karina were being really cute in that video, so Taeyeon’s feelings here were completely relatable! But fans have been pointing out that Taeyeon is showing herself to be a fan in other ways as well. One fan claimed that Taeyeon has been watching the Instagram stories of Winter fan accounts…

…proving that she really is aespa’s biggest fan! In fact, other fans have pointed out that Taeyeon has been incredibly supportive of aespa from the very beginning of their careers, even promoting them on her own social media.

But of course, none of this is really surprising, as Taeyeon has always been very supportive and protective of the younger artists in SM Entertainment. She is friends with the members of Red Velvet as well, and once she even scolded their manager for forcing Seulgi and Wendy to stop eating when Taeyeon went with them for ice cream!
Taeyeon is truly someone that fans can be proud of. She is not only an amazing artist, but a kind and caring person too who is always looking out for the younger artists. Hopefully we will continue to see many more wholesome moments of Taeyeon being supportive of her junior idols!
