Jessica once again express her disappointment through a letter.
Hello. This is Jessica.
On September 29th, I was given a notice from my agency to leave Girls’ Generation. I cannot hide my shocked and really upset about this, so I’m here to reveal my position.
I have always put Girls’ Generation’s activities first, before my business or personal life. However, even though I’ve show my efforts for the team, suddenly I was asked to leave the team by the agency.
While I was planning my business which I love, I had consulted with SM as well to all the members about my preparation many times and I asked for their understanding.
When I launch ‘BLANC’, I had received agreement and permission from SM, also the congratulations from the members.
However, in early September, after only a month since the launching, the members suddenly changed their position and held a meeting. They told me to choose, whether I quit my business or leave Girls’ Generation without any justifiable reason.
I explained to them that already received permission from the agency and I had never neglected Girls’ Generation’s activities. I also could not suddenly halt my business due to my contract with my business partner after a month.
Ultimately, I pleaded that it was unlikely for me to have to make a choice. Becoming a Girls’ Generation member was the best thing in my life and I had never thought about quitting.
Still shocked about this, I met the agency CEO on September 16 to assure my position. They confirmed their permission for carrying out my business.
However, on September 29, I was given a one-sided notice asking me to leave Girls’ Generation. I was also unable to attend the fan meeting in China which held on September 30,, they also said that I have been excluded from following Girls’ Generation activities.
I cannot hide my sadness and great pain. I was asked by my agency and fellow members, whom I spent 15 years with all my passion and effort, to leave the group. It’s just because I’m starting a business.
I also want to apologize for causing concern to all the fans. Please understand, I also don’t want this situation happen to us. I’ve always treasured Girls’ Generation and I’ll continue to do it. Thank you for always supporting and loving me.
