This is all over the net, antis+fans are going crazy (ok exaggerating that part haha!) so I decided I’d post this. Recently Taeyeon of SNSD went to the hospital at lunch time for a flu shot. She ranted a bit about her visit on her radio show MBC FM4U의 `강인 태연의 친한 친구`, with Kangin.
I went to the hospital to receive a shot because I was very ill with the flu. But when I arrived, the nurse told me to just lie down and wait, because it was lunch time. But she was a nurse, instead of telling me to wait, couldn’t she have just given me a shot? I almost caused a scene, but I simply stated, ‘How could you be like that,’ and left. Is it a patients duty to be sick on time?
Tell me which hospital it was. It looks like that nurse has lost her mind. She should just eat lunch forever.
SM Entertainment released an apology:
Taeyeon and Kangin should’ve been a little more careful with their words, unfortunately they weren’t. However, there were no evil intentions. All of us are very sorry about this incident.
My personal thoughts? First of all, Taeyeon and Kangin really didn’t have to rant on the radio like that. What was the point? To tell people not to go to that hospital? The thing is, things like this happen all the time, people complain, people get over it. Nurses do have to eat you know, they’re only human. And apparently in SK doctors have to give permission first, so that’s two people that have to deal with you. She should’ve just waited for a while, because from what she said, it sounds like she didn’t even wait, just got up and left. Hospitals run according the severity, nurses won’t come running to help you for a shot and leave some dying person. It is lunch time, there should be other doctors and nurses on duty, but maybe they’re busy with other patients that were there first or in worse condition? People here have to wait even in emergency situations. My piano teacher had an asthma attack and still had to wait, because there are other people too. However, it is understood that it sucks having to wait. When it’s you who’s waiting, you’d get frustrated too. Just like how as a student you totally want to be able to use your cell phone in school, but if you were a teacher you’d totally not want that. She was probably frustrated due to being sick. Being irritated is normal. It’s not that big of a deal, people are just going nutsos and blowing this into some huge deal. Sucks for SM, how many times have they issued apologies for something their artists said? *shakes head* Artists can feel free to express their opinions, just don’t say it toward the public, talk among yourselves, like us normal people. Being irritated is ok and human, but she shouldn’t have said it on the radio. Because now it’s become some huge controversy.
