|wait what happened with jessica?? i'm confused, like did she want to leave or??|
Basically, according to Jessica’s official statement and SM Entertainment’s official statement, Jessica was caught between trying to juggle her fashion business and her activities in Girls Generation. She never wanted to leave Girl’s Generation, and even consulted the CEO and the members multiple times seeking permission to continue her clothing brand while remaining a member of the group.
However, opinions changed and the members and CEO suddenly believed that she didn’t have the time nor dedication to remain a member of GG, thus kicking her out of the group and further GG activities, but still having her remain under SM Entertainment due to her renewed contract.
It’s all bullshit because a large number of kpop idols balance their own activities whether it be fashion, acting, or outside relationships. Fucking Yoona misses half of Girls Generation’s activities due to drama or CF filming, and Jessica almost never misses anything. For 15 years Jessica’ has dealt with this bullshit of putting her heart and soul into this company, and once she decides to put a smidge of her passion into something else, they drop her.
I’ll never get it. I’ll never understand why her situation was suddenly so different from every other idol out there. Honestly, I believe it stemmed from an underlying personal issue within the members, but idk. I’m disappointed and heartbroken that I will never have the chance to see OT9 live. It makes me hate myself for not making the effort to go to KCON. We can all hope for the best, but at this point, I think it’s best for Jessica to leave this bullshit company and call it a day.
