Taeyeon wrote, "I'm so sorry for making you to worry. I apologized to the taxi driver. However, other passengers rejected my contact."
She continued, "I'm letting you know because there have been several misunderstandings going on. I will be more careful with driving. I apologize for causing worries."
One fan commented, "Taeyeon unnie, if you see this comment, please upload a post of public apology. I'm saying this because I'm concerned as your fan. I was so shocked but I'm glad that everyone's okay."
Taeyeon replied, "Babe, this is not something that I need to apologize to the public. I need to apologize directly to the involved people. The accident has been well resolved. I really appreciate you for worrying about me. I will drive carefully."
As many fans suggested that Taeyeon should take legal actions to the alleged victims for spreading false information about the accident, Taeyeon wrote, "Yes, I am planning on doing so. I will be more careful."
On November 28, Taeyeon's car rear-ended a taxi, which then struck another car, causing a multi-vehicle accident in Gangnam, Seoul.
