Following Tyler Kwon's words about the 'truth about what really happened' becoming known, Jessica has now broken her silence to offer her side of the story in detail with an official statement.

Released through her fashion company 'BLANC', the notice is as follows:


"Hello. This is Jessica.

I was given a notice of departure from Girls' Generation by the agency on September 29, and I cannot hide my shocked and upset heart about this, so I'm here to reveal my position.

I have always put Girls' Generation's activities before my business or personal life as a member of Girls' Generation. However, despite my efforts for the team, I have been asked to leave the team by the agency.

While I was planning my business that I've had a lot of interest in since before, I had sufficiently consulted SM as well as the members about my preparation many times and asked for their understanding.

Up until the beginning of August when I was launching 'BLANC', I had received agreement and permission from SM, and congratulations from the members as well.

However, in early September, after only a month since the launching, the members suddenly changed their position and held a meeting, and told me to either quit my business or leave Girls' Generation without any justifiable reason. 
I explained that I had already received permission from the agency, that I had never neglected Girls' Generation's activities, and that I could not suddenly halt my business due to my contract with my business partner after a month. 
Ultimately, I pleaded that it was unjust 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.

Shocked about this, I had met with the agency CEO on September 16 to convey my position, and once again 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. Due to this, I was also unable to attend the fan meeting in China on September 30, and I have also been excluded from following Girls' Generation activities.

I have received great pain and cannot hide my sadness that I was asked by the agency and fellow members, whom I've spent 15 years with putting in all my passion and effort, to leave Girls' Generation just because of the reason that I'm starting a business.

I also want to apologize for causing concern to all the fans. Please understand that this situation is not at all what I had wanted, and that I've always treasured Girls' Generation, and that I will continue to do so. Thank you for always supporting and loving me.

Sincerely,
Jessica


This certainly contradicts the statement released by SM Entertainment yesterday, leaving us to wonder who to believe and what the truth is. What are your thoughts about Jessica's statement vs. that of SM's?

you know what's funny? Why is that when former super junior member Kim Kibum asked for a temporary leave to pursue his acting career, super junior was fine with it...he was still a super junior member all these years till 2015. So what I don't get is that why couldn't girls generation let jessica do the same, Kibum didn't put his focus on super junior too and he didn't get hate. I'm pretty sure Jessica wanted to do the same.....I am not blaming either Girls Generation or Jessica..I just miss them so much together. But just recently I came up this thing online that said that Taeyeon and Jessica had a fight before her departure and it's just sad.

I support Jessica!  I feel like maybe SM ent had something to with the members changing their views but in all honesty the members also had their voices so why didn't they use them? It's all so confusing who to believe but had GG been supportive of Jessica the entire time maybe things would've been different! I just can't help but blame SM ent rather than the members for this absurd situation. i just keep thinking that even if you are idols under an agency like SM ... you should still be able to voice your opinion even if it contradicts what their agencies says or wants.

They say that Jessica was already planning all her dreams and all the other 8 members were supporting her. But they asked her to stay until the release of album this year and give priority to GG but she couldn't keep her words. "Divine" was her farewell song that means the company and all were prepared for her leave. But she was indecisive and wants to join again GG after her marriage. But before their China concert she flew to NYC and came back a day before their concert, means she was not able to rehearse and all, which means she was not able to do "prioritize GG".

That's what rumors say according to a reliable source. I don't want to take sides. I just hope that this issue will be cleared coz I really don't want the other members to accused and also hoping that GG didn't really voted her to be kicked out the group, though I believe they really didn't. I mean we can never really tell you know? No one ever had the truth except for the parties involved.

I cant believe im not the only one looking back at this post....I TOTALLY AGREE WITH U!!! I don't want to take sides either but if there was a case where I would have to back one side up, I have to backup Jessica....fvck SM....if anything, the SNSD members were forced to siding with SM! Forget all the, "it was in the best interest of the group", that has TYPICAL BUSINESS written all over it...SM and the members (if they had anything to do with it) shoulve given her another to chance to prove her SNSD priorities!! I see now why they suddenly decided to kick her out now but come on, ONE THING! She was hella precious to the group, u cant let her go like that. Oh well, the past is the past, Im supporting both SNSD and Jessica, and all I can hope for is that the members r still on good terms with her and communicate and support her!!

@klamtifara ikr, i really hope that they are still in good terms. if not, maybe time will heal all the wounds. And, yeah, she is one of the precious members knowing that she was the main vocal along with Taeyeon. Listening to their songs make me miss her, i'm like "Jessica got a lot of part in the songs, subvocals and all. You know".. This scandal remains a mystery, really. No one ever dared to tell the truth in public.

@Yooniversal its just how the world works unfortunately...it takes such a long time for the truth to come out (like Tao of EXO) and when it does, u know there's still things missing...I think Sunny and Yoona still keep in contact and others are still "hurt"....nonetheless I MISS JESSICA OT9!

Why do I feel that this is more of an explanation for SM than for us? More like a defense made in public. I feel like this was her answer to the issue/problem, with regard to her business, that SM had told her why she was removed from SNSD.

Also, why would she say that "I have always put Girls' Generation's activities before my business or personal life as a member of Girls' Generation." when no fan has questioned that before the issue.

ikr, she's like defending in advance before SM could ever publish her removal. I don't want to take sides, I just hope that this issue will be cleared coz a lot of stupid and close minded people are accusing the other 8 members. I hope Jessica will the "truth" that she's talking about. What's holding her back?

@Yooniversal glad to know ppl r still worried about this controversy...I can never imagine myself blaming the SNSD members...what's holding her back? The public, paparazzi, BUSINESS. This world is messed up and is not a perfect home for the truth...we will never be able to get the truth anymore. Jessica has moved on and is clearly enjoying her business and SNSD has been having great times. All I hope for now is for the two to have connections still and still remain the best of sisters!

Make a deal Jessica... make a deal???????

To All SNSD/Girl generation Fans:

The girls of SNSD and Jessica need our help. We need a coordinate response from all Fan in USA, Korea, China and Japan. Here is the purposed plan:

1. We need to push SM Entertainment and Jessica to make a deal.

2. The Deal -SM Entertainment will bring Jessica back into the SNSD group ;,Jessica will give SM Entertainment 10% of Blanc net profit, ;15% of net profit will go the other girl members of SNSD. Jessica and ;her ;partners will keep 75% of net profit.This is a win win ;for all parties.

SM Entertainment will use their marketing expertise to help Blanc. In the future other members can open their fashion lines with the same deal. Everyone will make a lot of money.

3. To force SM Entertainment to the table to make the deal we need all fans to do the following:

(A) ; All young fans will ask their parents to Sell ;Short ; SM Entertainment's stock- Just 1 to 10 share will do. Older fans can short sell the stocks themselves. The cumulative effect will add to, large numbers ;short shares ;being sold ;and the market place will do the rest and ;all the rats will jump ship. This fall in stock price will cause the Board of Directors ;and partners to pressure SM management to make a deal.

(B) We need the Presidents of the fans clubs and fans to let the Korean news agency ;that the fans are going sell short the stock of SM Entertainment. They love this type of news and will put it on the news.

The market place will start selling stock before most fans even get to it. ; Yonhap News Agency, Korea JoongAng Daily, Korea Herald, etc.

(C) This will serve as a financial 2 by 4 over the SM Entertainment head. It is the only serious way for the fans to get their attention. This folks only respond to money and image and reputation.

(D) We need the Presidents of the fan clubs and fans ;to e-mail or write to: ;Yun Byung-se Minister of Foreign Affairs

; Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 60, Sajik-ro 8-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul, ; Republic of Korea (110- ; ; 787)

TEL: 82-2-2100-2114 ; FAX: 82-2-2100-7999

Kim Jongdeok Minister of Culture, Sports & Tourism.

Government Complex-Sejong, 388, Galmae-ro, Sejong-si 339-012, Republic of ; Korea Tel : 82-44-203-2000 Fax : 82-44-203-3447

;Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

Please tell them that SM Entertainment poor management decision is hurting the Korean nation image around the world that the Korea Government ;and the K-pop industry worked to create. I little political pressure will also help push a deal thru.

As we say in the French Foreign Legion

Honneur et Fidélité ("Honour and Fidelity) to Girls Generation.

Those with the skill please translate this plan into Chinese, Japanese

and Korean. Post on sites around Asia.

Good luck to the Girls
