Girls' Generation's Jessica is currently under fire for arriving late to a press event.
Jessica was scheduled to appear for the 'Jessica Beauty Talk Show & Fan Signing Meeting' at the Lotte Mall in Seoul on the 12th KST. However, she arrived 30 minutes late to the venue, and press members are reported to have not been pleased. Many reporters complained that there was no explanation or apology for her tardiness.
However, the event representative has come forward to explain the situation. He stated, "Jessica even adjusted her schedule to arrive on time for the event. However, since punctuality is important, she sends her apologies."
Before the event, Jessica is reported to have been recording for Girls' Generation's upcoming Arena Tour in japan. Due to delays in productions for the tour as well as Lunar New Year traffic, she arrived late.
According to the rep, she also had to wait due to a dangerously large crowd of fans and safety concerns. He stated, "Though Jessica did want to apologize, the scheduled event had limited time, so we just went through with the event. For this, we apologize."
