A powerhouse vocalist
Taeyeon debuted as part of the mega girl group, Girls’ Generation in 2007 under SM Entertainment. The group went on to become one of the best-selling artists in South Korea.
As a soloist, Taeyeon has a hefty portfolio under her belt. She released her EP ‘I’ in 2015, followed by ‘Why’. Her first solo album, ‘My Voice’ came out in 2017 with the single ‘Fine’, both reaching the top of the Gaon Album Chart and Gaon Digital Chart. She went on to release her third EP, ‘This Christmas: Winter is Coming’ in 2017 and ‘Something New’ the following year.
Then, she dropped her second studio album, ‘Purpose’ in 2019, which was quickly followed by ‘What Do I Call You’ in 2020. Her most recent release was her third studio album, ‘INVU’ which peaked at number two on the Gaon Album Chart.
Between 2011 and 2021, Taeyeon sold over a million physical albums, becoming the highest-selling South Korean female artist at the time. She was also featured on the Forbes Korea Power Celebrity list in 2016, 2018, and 2019.
