SM says Taetiseo and SNSD Members Will Continue Activities as Scheduled
Taetiseo and individual member activities will continue for Girls′ Generation.
After officially announcing that SNSD will continue as eight, SM Entertainment told Newsen on September 30, "The SNSD members will continue activities as scheduled."
Currently, SNSD has many activities scheduled, including Taetiseo promotions, Sooyoung appearing in the drama Spring Day of My Life, Sunny in SBS′ Roommates 2, and more. SM Entertainment stated that even after the announcement of SNSD as eight, activities will continue.
Through a press release on September 30, SM Entertainment stated, "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."
The statement continued, "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."
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."
