On August 17, fans mobbed Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon as she arrived at Soekarno Hatta Airport, Indonesia.
The mob went haywire causing unnecessary harm and distress towards the singer.
Taeyeon tried to remain calm and silent even though people kept knocking their cameras on her.
Someone knocked into Taeyeon with their large camera and Taeyeon’s expression went down from there >:( pic.twitter.com/P0BVRZISkg

She expressed her own worries in detail on her personal Instagram account.
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
“At the Jakarta airport, there were so many people in a crowd close together, feet and bodies kept on getting tangled up with each other. It was a dangerous situation where I fell on the floor shaking and couldn’t stop my tears. The local security guard thought it was a dangerous situation so he lifted me up, which was also very baffling and surprising.
I was very tense due to the body contact from both behind and from the side. There was no order (at the airport) and people who were waiting for me also fell down. Some of them may have even gotten hurt, so my heart does not feel good (right now). And it might not have been intentional, but parts of my body such as my butt and chest kept getting touched, bumped in to, or yanked at… That feeling made me embarrassed and I lost my senses. Because of that, I could not arrive at Jakarta, where I have not been for a while, with a good image. I am so sorry to the fans who were waiting. Please keep order so nobody gets hurt. Our fans have more love, affection, and understanding for each other, more than anyone else, so I will consider today as a happening (one-time event). I hope that no one gets hurt.
