SM States that SNSD will Promote as Eight Without Jessica
Regarding the rumors of Jessica being kicked out of SNSD, SM Entertainment made an official statement that SNSD will be promoting as 8 members with Jessica leaving the group.
On September 30, SM Entertainment made an official statement regarding Jessica′s leave from SNSD.
"This spring, Jessica told the company that due to a personal situation, she will be stopping team promotions after the end of one more album promotion," said SM Entertainment. "Despite Jessica′s sudden announcement, the company and the SNSD members persistently worked hard and pondered on how to continue promotions in a good direction for SNSD."
"However, before agreements could be made on rising conflicts regarding the priority and interests of SNSD promotions, Jessica began her fashion-related business, and a situation arose where it became difficult to maintain the team despite continuous discussions."
"With this, the company decided it had to promote SNSD with eight members sooner than expected, and while it was discussing when to announce the news, Jessica posted her own perspective in the early morning."
SM Entertainment wrote last, "From this point onward, the company will unchangingly support and manange SNSD with eight members as well as Jessica′s personal activities."
Earlier at 5AM KST on this day, Jessica posted on her Weibo, "I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today, I′m no longer a member. I′m devastated - my priority and love is to serve as a member of GG, but for no justifiable reason, I am being forced out."
The post made fans and netizens wonder if Jessica′s SNS account was hacked, as speculations rose on the issue.
The remaining eight SNSD members also caught attention as they headed to Shenzhen for the Girls′ Generation 1st Fan Party without Jessica.
