Jessica shared her career story with 'Marie Claire Taiwan.'

The singer sat down for an interview/photo shoot with the fashion magazine at her hotel room at the 'W Taipei' in Taiwan. Jessica wore a beautiful white Dior ensemble for her first outfit. 

The Chinese to English translations for the quotes were provided by Merzore.

Passionate for fashion, the singer once mentioned her dreams of entering the fashion industry. "I started having this dream after being part of the entertainment industry."  Alas, in 2014 she successfully launched her own clothing line 'Blanc & Eclare.'

She commented on departing Girls' Generation and becoming more independent, " I felt more free and independent, I thought about many things, about how I'm turning 30 soon and it's time to grow up....If I were still a group member, I would not have been able to achieve what I have today."

When asked if she ever felt pressure and had the urge to give up any part of her career, she commented, "I would be lying if I said it hasn't been hard but I've learned to manage better as time goes....I am a very focused person and I pay 100% attention to whenever I am doing something."

She then added, "...I have an on/off switch, I can switch my mindset and psyche around very quickly....I became a singer and started a business because I have a passion for them, so it never crossed my mind to give up either of them."

Jessica then opened up about her younger sister Krystal whom she cares dearly for.  She recalled to her earliest debut days, "I felt so guilty towards her at that time.  Being the elderly sister, I should have shown the strong and reliable side of me...I wasn't a good role model," shedding tears.

She continued, "There are no secrets between us, we're like family...Honestly, it's hard to find someone whom you can the entertainment industry....Having a sister in the same a blessing."

Turning 28 this year, it seems Jessica has matured as a multifaceted artist, "I feel like I've grown a fair bit from juggling so many roles. I've gained more wisdom as the years go in life..."

Honestly, nobody is going to truly know what happened but after looking at so many of the accounts given by the staff and members of SNSD themselves, it seems like it was a conflict of interests - SNSD wanted all members to focus solely on SNSD as the main priority, it was a promise the members made. But Jessica wanted to focus on SNSD and her fashion brand. Jessica didn't think that her attention from SNSD was lessened in any way and was willing to give 100% to both. SNSD didn't think that was really possible and when she arrived late to some SNSD events because of her fashion endeavors, those incidents reaffirmed their suspicions that Jessica couldn't truly manage both her fashion brand and SNSD without prioritizing one over the other. There must have been a lot of emotions from both sides and all of their feelings are valid - I don't think it's right to consider one side as right or wrong. They were just different and in this situation, there couldn't be a proper compromise that wouldn't involve one side feeling like their needs weren't completely met - SNSD would feel like Jessica wasn't as dedicated to the group as other members vs. Jessica wouldn't feel like she could give much attention to her fashion brand, something that was hers and hers alone that she could cultivate. Jessica also felt a lot of guilt to meet others' needs just like the rest of the members of SNSD probably always feel - it was just bad luck that her other passion of fashion couldn't mesh as well into SNSD's schedule, like how Taeyeon's solo promotions or the other members' solo promotions did. I think instead of looking at this incident as a fairy tale like there should be a villain and a hero, instead we should try to see the reality of it.

Bullshit, we never know if was late at the events because after all, she showed up with the members till the end. And if she (probably) was absent for the rehearsals she never made a mistake on stage during her last performances

Like I said, we don't know the true story. And you can choose to not agree with me, I'm just saying you can't speak as if you were there when you weren't. I'm not judging either side - they both had their reasons, even if the reasons aren't the same as those that I mentioned above.

That's why I am saying is bullshit, cuz I am not assuming anything and you are!!

michelleishappy kalniac Sunday, March 5, 2017

Okay I see what you mean, you're right. I don't know, no one knows except those involved, let's just agree on that.

no wonder shes still successful with so many delulus who cant accept the truth...not really hating but its still sad to see how idols can do pretty much anything they want and there will always be too many delulu idiots, who are so degenerated to just not wanting to believe the truth and still live in the dream land where all idols are so innocent like they act in front of the camera...
