Did Girls' Generation's Taeyeon make a spelling error using English on Instagram?

On June 28, Taeyeon shared a photo from her new album 'Why' with the caption, "#why #m02 summer babys :)", where the word 'babys' is incorrectly spelled. Taeyeon's fans pointed out her error, leaving comments to correct Taeyeon with the proper spelling, "babies"

Some netizens seem to be genuinely taken back by the error, commenting, "She doesn't even know basic grammar. I am so embarrassed. She has traveled overseas for many years, and sings in English often, but her English is on elementary level", while others simply commented, "Mistakes happen. This is only becoming a big deal because it's Taeyeon" or "She must've learned how to converse in English but not how to spell kekekeke".

Do you think Taeyeon's spelling error was an honest mistake, or just a fun way to post on social media?

I'd like to meet one of y'all that's never made a typo in your life before. Taeyeon is an international star with millions of fans doting on her, so correct spelling (when it's not even her first language) is the least of her worries. She has better things to do than you keyboard warriors...

Seriously..? Mistaking a 'ie' with a 'y'.. that's definitely one of the worlds biggest problems..

UM. You guys make mistakes too? And most of ya'll can't even write basic Korean? Lmao netz are probably one of the biggest groups of hypocrites just sayin. And does it really matter if she made a mistake? I doubt she has actually learned proper English and just cause she sings in English and travels overseas a lot doesn't mean that she has to be perfect at English. Hell most Americans sometimes make a mistake or two. Netz be finding little things to hate on cause they have too musch free time now smh

If she was fluent in English her spelling would probably be even worse~ You should see my facebook timeline haha. Americans aren't exactly known for our strict adherence to the rules of the English language lol

Nothing to be proud off

DizzyDelcatty ElajzaBG Thursday, June 30, 2016

When did I say I was proud of it? Poor reading comprehension is nothing to be proud of either, kid. Go read a book

ElajzaBG DizzyDelcatty Thursday, June 30, 2016

Mr/Mrs Yahoo, apparently your communication skills are as poor as spelling. Read again what you wrote. Or I'll just explain this to you: according to you (from your first comment) you are fluent in English but constantly making mistakes in spelling which is super funny based on the "hahaha" part, what's more you mentioned whole nation as the ones who don't follow language rules strictly which (once again) was worth to lol at. This does not sound like something that you feel bad with. At all. And thanks, but I can read a book without some internet whinger prompting.

DizzyDelcatty ElajzaBG Thursday, June 30, 2016

No, you should read again what I wrote. I never said anything about myself. Don't put words in my mouth. I also figured most people would be intelligent enough to not have to be spoon fed the fact that I didn't LITERALLY mean all of America makes spelling mistakes, though apparently I was wrong about that. I find it funny that you are being so pedantic about spelling and reading when you yourself made a spelling error in your first post and insist on adding in words when you see fit to what someone is actually saying. Get over yourself

ElajzaBG DizzyDelcatty Saturday, July 2, 2016

'You should see my facebook timeline haha.' I believe you did mention yourself.

DizzyDelcatty ElajzaBG Saturday, July 2, 2016

No, I mentioned my facebook timeline. Last time I checked I'm a person, not a timeline lol. You do know that timelines are a compilation of things OTHER PEOPLE say to you and share with you in addition to things you yourself post right? When I mentioned my timeline I was referring to what other people posted on it, though I can see how that could have been misconstrued. Regardless of that, the entire purpose of my post was to say that the average American is fairly lax on social media, so spelling errors aren't much of a concern nor are they a rarity. In fact, if she was American chances are she would be shortening things, using slang, and not being particularly careful about spelling in the first place on something as informal as Instagram lol. I never said anything about being proud of anything, you just took it upon yourself to get up on your high horse to try to make something that was meant to be light-hearted and playful into more than what it was. Though I can say without a doubt that I am very proud to have a sense of humor and to be willing to cut people some slack on simple language errors rather than being a condescending jerk about it.
