We've Missed You, Kim Taeyeon! The Grand Return After a 3-Year, 5-Month Wait
Girls' Generation's Taeyeon successfully concluded her 5th solo concert over the weekend. On June 3rd and 4th, Taeyeon held her 5th solo concert, 'TAEYEON CONCERT - The ODD Of LOVE,' at the KSPO DOME in Seoul Olympic Park. Taeyeon captivated her audience with a high-quality performance enriched with a diverse setlist, band sessions, multi-faceted stages, and unique fragrance effects.
Given that this was Taeyeon's solo concert after approximately 3 years and 5 months since 'TAEYEON CONCERT - THE UNSEEN' in January 2020, both performances witnessed a full-house, even with the inclusion of restricted-view seats, reaffirming Taeyeon's unchanging popularity and ticket power.
During the concert, Taeyeon performed her hit songs such as 'I', 'Four Seasons', and 'Spark', among others, which fans have longed to see. Along with that, she showcased a wide spectrum of music with stages of 'Set Myself On Fire', 'Weekend', 'Cold As Hell', 'No Love Again', and 'Stress', that were filled with spectacular performances.
Additionally, Taeyeon presented a total of 24 songs, including 'Some Nights', 'Heart', 'Better Babe', 'Fine', and 'Drawing Our Moments'-songs that allowed fans to indulge in her unique sentimentality and overwhelming vocal prowess. This showcase of her talents as a versatile vocalist was met with a passionate response from the audience.
During the concert, Taeyeon shared her feelings, saying, "It's been too long. Thank you for waiting for me for 3 years. I missed you. Last year, I filled the gymnastics stadium at a Girls' Generation fan meeting, and today, I filled it alone." She also heightened expectations by revealing, "Today is the last concert in Seoul, but it will continue as an Asia tour. There are countries that have been announced, and there are countries that will be announced later."
The audience also passionately enjoyed the concert, waving their pink light sticks, singing along, and continually calling her name. They also showed their affection by chanting "We love Kim Taeyeon" before the encore stage and unfurling banners that read, "It's a miracle that you came back to me after 3 years."
Moreover, the concert's production, directed by SM Performance Director Hwang Sang-hoon, enhanced the entertainment with a variety of features and effects, including colorful lighting, fireworks and fire pillars, and a scented paper flower airshot. Taeyeon, who has previously gained a favorable response for using fragrance effects in her concerts, further enhanced the immersion of the stage at this concert by using a scent that matches the theme, 'The ODD Of LOVE'.
Having successfully concluded her concert in Seoul, Taeyeon is scheduled to continue 'TAEYEON CONCERT - The ODD Of LOVE' on June 10th in Hong Kong and on June 24th in Taiwan.
