I doubt there is still someone out there who doesn’t know Kim Taeyeon. This graceful artist was first introduced to us as Girls’ Generation’s leader, and she continues to shine through her blooming solo career. Best known for her wide vocal range and her touching conveyance of emotions when performing, Taeyeon has mesmerized us time and time again with many breathtaking live stages. Subsequently, she leaves us always wanting more.

With her solo debut anniversary being only a few weeks away, here is a non-exhaustive selection of Taeyeon’s best live performances that completely shook us to the core!

1. “I Love You”

While we’re used to Taeyeon reaching the highest notes, listening to her soft ballads is ethereal music to our ears. Serving as the ending theme for the action drama “Athena: Goddess of War,” this soundtrack captured the hearts of many audiences both in Korea and Japan.
