Taeyeon describes feeling sexually harassed at airport incident, SME responds (sorta)

자카르타 공항에서 수많은 인파에 몰려 발이 엉키고 몸도 엉켜서 많이 위험한 상황이 있었습니다 실제로 바닥에 넘어진채로 벌벌떨고 눈물이 멈추지 않았어요. 현지 경호원분이 위험해 보였는지 절 뒤에서 번쩍 들어올리셔서 그것 또한 너무 당황스러웠고 놀랐습니다. 자꾸 뒤에서 옆에서 신체접촉에 긴장했던 상황인지라 질서라는건 찾아볼 수 없었고 기다려주셨던 분들중에 똑같이 넘어지고 다치신 분들도 있는 것 같아서 제 마음이 몹시 좋지 않네요. 그리고 고의는 아니었겠지만 신체일부 엉덩이며 가슴이며 자꾸 접촉하고 부딪히고 서로 잡아당기고.. 그 느낌도 참 당황스럽고 제정신을 못차리겠더라고요. 그래서 오랜만에 도착한 자카르타에서 좋은 모습으로 입국 할 수가 없었습니다. 기다려준 팬들에게 너무 미안하고 제발 우리 다치지않게 질서를 지켜줬으면 좋겠어요 그 누구보다 사랑 많고 정 많고 서로 이해 할 수 있는 우리팬들이니까 오늘일은 해프닝으로 생각할게요. 모두 다 상처받지 않길 바랄게

Yesterday, Taeyeon if SNSD was greeted by a mob at an airport with no personal security to protect her and it resulted in her collapsing at one point. Later, she posted a message on Instagram, and along with explaining what happened she also expressed that she felt sexually harassed.

“There was such a large crowd at the airport in Jakarta that my feet became tangled up and my body was also, so it was a very dangerous situation. I actually fell to the floor, and I trembled and couldn’t stop crying. Perhaps because I looked like I was in danger, the security guard on site came from behind me and lifted me up, which also startled me. I was anxious because of the recurring physical contact from behind me and to my sides, and I couldn’t find any order. I am very upset because I think some of the people who were waiting for me also fell and were injured. Also, it wouldn’t have been intentional, but there was recurring contact with parts of my body, my behind and my chest, as well as colliding and pulling… I was taken aback by that and couldn’t get ahold of myself. That is why I couldn’t appear my best when I arrived in Jakarta for the first time in a while. I’m so sorry to the fans who waited, and please, I hope order will be kept so that we do not get hurt. You are our fans who are the most loving and kind-hearted, and can understand each other, so I will think of today’s events as just an accident. I hope that no one is hurt.”

Emphasis mine.

She doesn’t explicitly say it herself, but the massive crowd, the feeling of being exposed without security, and having those areas touched definitely explains the fall and what not.

In response, SM Entertainment will now increase security because they’ve definitely never done this before and couldn’t have anticipated this situation.

On August 18, SM Entertainment said, “Taeyeon was very surprised at the chaotic situation in Indonesia’s airport, but she is stable now. She is, in fact, more worried about whether any fans were injured.” They added, “She is currently working as planned locally.” They added, “The hosts apologized deeply, and they will be increasing the security so that there will not be any safety issues at the performance venue or when she leaves. On our part, we will also take extra care in the safety of our artists and increase security.”

Right.

Reminder that SNSD’s contracts are up for renewal and SME are rumored to be not pleased.
