Taeyeon honors 49th day of father's passing with heartfelt Instagram post

AKP STAFF

Taeyeon recently wrote a bittersweet message to her father on Instagram.

On April 26 KST, she wrote the message: "I will keep you deep inside my heart. My dear father." The accompanying image was one of her father holding a camcorder while proudly taking a video of her.

April 26 was the 49th day since Taeyeon's father's passing, which is an important day in Korea due to the nation's Buddhist origins, as it signifies the day his spirit finished his trials in the afterlife and could be reincarnated.

Meanwhile, fellow Girls' Generation member Sooyoung was among the many who left their thoughts in response to her post, with Sooyoung leaving a sweet comment that reads, "Dad, we love you."

For those who dunno why 49th day.

Buddhist ceremony held in memory of a deceased person seven times, once every seven days, for 49 days after death.

According to the Buddhist view of the afterlife, human beings who die without attaining enlightenment are trapped in the eternal cycle of birth, death, and rebirth, and remain in the state of jungyu (Kor. 중유, Chin. 中有, a period of forty-nine days human beings need to wait after death before the next birth). The souls of the dead suffer repeated births and deaths for seven days if the conditions for rebirth are not present, and the seven-day period repeats seven times until a total of seven intermediate periods (49 days) have elapsed. According to this belief, repeated sutra recitation of the living during the 49 day period helps the dead to be reborn in a better world.

It probably means her dad is a Buddhist, but not necessarily herself.
