Today is Kim Tae-yeon’s 23rd birthday. I thought I’d celebrate by wearing my “309″ Tae-yeon beanie today, but I wear that every day so I’m making a Tae-yeon related post too :) .

Let’s start with her awesome Devil’s Cry (intro to Run Devil Run) performance from SNSD’s Japan tour DVD (long overdue):

I need to share this clip from Tae-yeon’s solo performance of the song I Love You (사랑해요) earlier today in Osaka. The song is from the soundtrack of K-drama Athena: Goddess of War.

I get goosebumps when Tae-yeon is on the verge of breaking into tears when singing “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”, but then powers through it. So intense and moving!

Every day I long for you
That’s how my day goes by
Where are you?

I’m sorry, I’m sorry that I can’t forget you
My love come back to me
Don’t leave my side, please
