TWICE member Nayeon is under fire for recent Instagram post regarding Girls’ Generation Taeyeon

Instagram and other SNS accounts are used for idols not only to freely express themselves but also to connect with their fans. But due to the fact that it is available for the public to see, idols must be careful not to offend anyone and to watch their posts with caution. Could there be another female idol who is under fire for the right reasons?

Nayeon posted on her Instagram to claim that she was a fan of Taeyeon by posting a screenshot of her cellphone listening to Taeyeon’s recently released digital single. However, Nayeon was streaming from SoundCloud file which has been uploaded illegally by others instead of streaming from sites such as Melon.

Naeyon: “I really get emotional whenever I concentrate to this song. Isn’t it amazing how emotions can be sent through earphones? I am still lacking a lot as an artist but I pray that I can do the same with my own songs. -Nayeon #TaeyeonSeniorIsTheBest.. #ONCEhaveAGoodWeekend.”

Comment: “It isn’t a problem to use SoundCloud but it becomes a problem to listen to a song there if it was released as a digital album and uploaded illegally on SoundCloud.”

“It isn’t good to see that she is listening from SoundCLoud.”

“Whew… Can you tell the difference between downloaded and streaming? hahahahaah Anti-fans must know that they are dumb”
