Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon Voted Number One Future Idol Mentor
Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon received the highest votes as the idol who would be the future mentor and offer the greatest support.
MBC’s ‘Star Audition: Birth of a Great Star’ is currently receiving much attention and there is also great interest on idols who would be future mentors for the show.
From April 26th to May 2nd, music portal ‘Bugs!’ held a survey with the question, ‘Which idol would most likely be the future mentor for the show Star Audition?’ The results showed Girls’ Generation Taeyeon taking first place with 45% (2487 people) votes.
Taeyeon is the lead singer for Girls’ Generation and is known as the ‘Vocals Terminator’ for her singing skills and famous OST tracks. The participants who voted for Taeyeon commented that “Taeyeon leads a 9-member group and is a bold leader”, and “Taeyeon’s voice, singing, etc. There is nothing about her that is wrong.” Based on her experiences, many support the great likelihood of Taeyeon being a good mentor. A MR (Music Removed) video of Taeyeon’s OST song ‘I Love You’ for the drama ‘Athena: Goddess of War’ uploaded online also illustrated her perfect vocals.
Girls’ Generation is currently staying strong on the Oricon chart with their Japanese single ‘MR. TAXI’. Other idols voted were JYJ’s Junsu and 2AM’s Changmin.
