Okay I’m going to share my sincere opinion on this Jessica matter because it’s just frustrating how some fans don’t seem to get the situation.

Firstly, korean fans of hers already knew for quite a while she’s been in the edge of leaving. She’s been planning a whole new life outside of SM, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, of course. We all know our idols aren’t going to be idols forever. So, she started thinking about marriage and even launching her own brand and pursuing the fashion career in the US/China market. 

The thing is, you can’t be a part-time fashionista. You can’t be a part-time worker if you own a business like that in general. You can’t hire people to do fashion for you, you need to be there. Also, she’s going to study in the US. Do you really think she will be able to handle SNSD promotions AND studying abroad? And it’s not close, you know. She would have to go back and forth all the time. Imagine during tours and stuff, how exhausted she would be. 

Fans said ‘oh, but a lot of idols study and promote at the same time’. Yes, but they study in Korea, and also school is something everyone needs to go through, no matter what you want to do in the future, it’s not something you can avoid.

Then people started mentioning how AJ studied abroad and was still a U-KISS member. Fine, but he’s doing college so he has regular breaks where he can come back to U-KISS and promote together for a while. But can a fashionista be free from period to period? No. And also, if you look close NH Media has been trying to put U-KISS comebacks when AJ is free with University and can come to promote with them. Don’t you think this is a bit pointless and selfish? To have all the members of your group and your company to plan everything around your own schedule? Well, U-KISS members seem to be fine with that so no big deal, but SNSD members are clearly not. Jessica chose a new career to follow, and this obviously means she’s done being an idol.

But Jessica couldn’t give one thing up. She’s human too, and we know how attached she probably is to SNSD, but this is selfish behavior. I’m sure things would have ended differently if she stepped out from the groups friendly and said she wanted to follow her dream, I’m sure people would support her, SNSD member included. She had to make a choice, and failed to do so, in result SM had to make that choice for her. You see, it wasn’t even mean or anything. She’s about to pursue her dream and bound to succeed in her new path, SM set her free to do it. She probably didn’t want to admit this had no way of working out with her doing the two things together, but of course SM knew. 

If they said they were kicking her out as a threat for her to make up her mind about choosing either SNSD or her own business, or if they actually meant it, we will never know. She immediately posted it on her Weibo, sounding like a spoiled kid who was denied her lollipop. We can’t have everything in life, that’s the truth. I’m far from being a SNSD/Jessica hater, I feel bad for the members, I hope both parties can find happiness, but to be honest in my opinion this is way more unfair to the 8 remaning members than to Jessica herself. People need to stop blindly blaming the companies for everything that happens to their idols. Jessica should have left the group by herself. 

If Jessica wanted to leave to be a fashionista and SM didn’t let her go because of her contract, people would’ve blamed SM for that too. I’m not saying SM has no faults, but this time I don’t think they should be blamed. They did what was better to both sides. It would be really burdensome having no confirmation of Jessica being able or not to attend concerts, fansigns, promotions. It would make everyone stressed and would make their plans for SNSD way harder. I’m not trying to be mean, just thinking rationally about the situation.

part of me is upset that i never got to see all nine perform live and i probably  will never get that chance


sm: [is down to only 2 groups that still have all their original members, one of which has only been around for like 8 seconds]

shinee: my momma said i have to go home right now immediately


so….looking back at jessica’s weibo, there was no confusion. sm wasn’t looking into anything, they just didn’t know how react to the fact that jessica got online and straight up said she was unjustly terminated from her job.

sm, without telling her, kicked her out and told the other girls about it, and the girls probably got no answers as to why, which is why they looked so upset at the airport.

so when jessica posted that status, it was really the first time she was finding out. the company never formally told her-she showed up to get to her activities, they stopped her and told her right then and there she was no longer a member of snsd.

sm entertainment is truly cold and heartless, as well as evil and manipulative.

this is exactly what i was thinking before it was confirmed. they werent “looking into it” at all. they were just getting all their PR people together to think of the quickest and best way to reply to her weibo post without making them look like the bad guys


sm: due to *spins colorful wheel* scheduling conflicts, *throws a dart at board* shinee’s minho *picks card* was uninvited to our birthday party?


But wait… If we don’t kno if jessica got fired….and sm don’t kno if jessica got fired…then who’s flying the plane!?

So what's with the Jessica and SM thing going on right now?

Idk man. Apparently she made a weibo post saying that the other 8 members were against her and that sm dropped her from all activities and that she’s no longer part of sm. But supposedly sm has no idea what’s actually going on and that snsd was at the airport and she wasn’t there but all the members were apparently “visibly upset”. Know one actually knows what’s going on for sure ugh

i dont think the post said the members were against her. it was worded weird but it seemed more like she was saying that she and the 8 other members were just informed that she was leaving, not that the 8 others were against her
