When Girls’ Generation’s Jessica arrived 30 minutes late to an event with fans, pouty faces were made.

On February 12, Jessica was scheduled to be at the Lotte Department Store in Sokgok-dong at 2 PM for the Jessica Beauty Talk Show & Fansigning.

However, the SNSD member did not show up until 30 minutes later and started the event without an apology for the tardiness to the press and fans who waited.

The lack of apology made some criticism towards the singer rise and her bold attitude towards being late were not well-received.

However, the staff in charge of the event later explained that Jessica’s recording session to correct a music file for SNSD’s Japanese arena tour ran a bit longer than usual, causing everything to run late, including the traffic remaining from the Lunar New Year weekend.

“Jessica wanted to apologize, but due to time restrictions, she was unable to,” said the event affiliate. “We sincerely apologize for the delay.”

The response to the explanation has been diverse with netizens saying, “She should personally apologize,” “It’s because her schedule is too packed,” and “They should have been prepared for the traffic after the holiday.”
