SNSD‘s Taeyeon called out a host of ‘Radio Star‘ for using a negative term for Girls’ Generation fans on the recent broadcast of the show.
Host Kim Gookjin commented on Taeyeon’s kiss scenes during her previous casting in the musical, ‘The Sun’s Song‘. He asked, “Wouldn’t the ‘Soh-Duks’ dislike it?” referring to the mingling of the Korean word for the Japanese term “otaku” and SNSD’s full Korean name, SohNyeoShidae. Kim Gookjin further explained, “SNSD otakus.”
The SNSD members seemed slightly taken aback by the usage as Taeyeon replied, “That’s a negative expression.” The hosts expressed that they did not know about the negative connotation to the term, and Yoon Jong Shin joked, “The youngest is telling us that it’s a ‘negative expression’. Let’s not use the phrase again.”
SNSD’s Tiffany and Jessica also appeared on the episode.
