Seohyun spoke up for the first time since parting ways with SM Entertainment last month.

Since then, there have been reports the Girls' Generation star would be setting up her own one-man label, but we haven't heard from Seohyun herself until now. On November 3, Seohyun made the following post on Instagram:

"To the fans I love... To the fans who've been right by our side and protected us for such a long time... Hello, this is Girls' Generation's Seohyun. I'm very apologetic towards the fans who were confused and worried after the recent unexpected news.... I wanted to express my emotions, but I didn't want to make mistakes so I'm writing this after thinking and thinking again. Recently, I ended my relationship with SM Entertainment that's been like a nest and family to me. After a lot of worrying, I came to that difficult decision. My heart is filled with gratitude to teacher Lee Soo Man, who gave an average 12-year-old girl the opportunity to live a new life as Seohyun of Girls' Generation... I also met my precious unnies and my dependable SONE, and all the many moments we had crying and laughing the past 10 years are passing by like a kaleidoscope. From my time as a trainee who had to go through fierce competition to fulfill her dream to be a singer to the moment I debuted as Girls' Generation like it was fate, from my teens to my late 20s, we've always been together. The beautiful, countless happy days, how we were always on each other's side and saw things through, how we matured during difficult moments together, how we've run up to this point. All those moments are so very precious to me, and they're beautiful times that I'll never forget... And after 10 years, we've come to understand and respect through many conversations that we may have different desires for our future and the picture and colors of our lives vary a little. Though we may be together in a different way than we have before, the belief that we'll cheer each other on has not changed for me. After a lot of thought, I've concluded that I'll stand alone. I felt I needed to make new challenges in my life, and I had to make the decision in order to challenge myself. I'm now starting a new challenge as singer, actress, and human Seo Ju Hyun. However, I'll always do my best to be with the unnies when I'm needed as a part of Girls' Generation in the future, and I'll forever support and be with Girls' Generation... Though I feel uneasy about leaving my nest and starting everything anew, I'll take responsibility for the decision I've made after so much thought. I sincerely thank my countless fans and thank them again for trusting me and giving me so much love... I'll show you a Seo Ju Hyun who's always doing her best to be a dependable artist, actress, and person by your side that you can be proud of!"

긴 세월 동안 언제나 같은 자리에서 우리를 든든하게 지켜줬던 팬 여러분께.. 안녕하세요. 소녀시대 서현입니다. 얼마 전 예고도 없이 보도된 갑작스러운 소식에 혼란스럽고 걱정하셨을 많은 팬 여러분께 정말 죄송한 마음이 가득합니다…. 감정적으로 섣불리 저의 마음을 표현하려다 혹여나 실수하게 될까 많이 고민하고 또 고민하다 고심 끝에 이 글을 올려요.  저는 얼마 전 지난 10여 년간 함께 해온 가족 같은 저의 둥지 SM과의 인연에 마침표를 찍게 되었어요. 수많은 고민과 결심 끝에 어려운 결정을 하게 되었습니다. 12살의 평범한 소녀였던 저를 소녀시대 서현으로 새로운 삶을 살 수 있도록 만들어주신 이수만 선생님께 진심으로 감사한 마음이 가득합니다…. 그리고 제 인생에서 너무나 소중한 언니들을 만났고 또 든든한 팬 여러분 소원을 만나 그렇게 서로 함께한 10년이란 세월 동안 매 순간 함께 울고 함께 웃었던 날들이 주마등처럼 스쳐 지나가네요.. 가수의 꿈을 품고 치열한 경쟁을 했던 연습생 시절부터 같은 꿈을 갖고 운명처럼 소녀시대로 하나가 되어 데뷔했던 순간, 10대였던 소녀 시절부터 20대 후반이 된 지금까지 우린 늘 함께였기에 찬란하게 반짝였던 수없이 행복했던 나날들과 언제나 서로가 서로의 편이 되어주며 버텨냈던 고되고 힘들었던 순간들까지 함께 이겨내며 성장하며 쉼 없이 달려온 모든 날이 저에겐 너무나 소중하고 영원히 잊지 못할 아름다운 시간입니다…. 그리고 10년이 지난 지금 서로가 원하는 미래와 그 삶의 그림과 색깔이 각자 조금씩 다른 방향일 수 있다는 걸 많은 대화를 통해 서로 이해하고 존중하게 되었어요. 비록 예전과는 조금 다른 모양과 방식으로 함께할지라도 서로를 응원해주고 함께 할 거라는 믿음만은 변함이 없습니다. 오랜 고민 끝에 제가 내린 결론은 홀로서기였습니다. 제 인생에서 새로운 도전이 필요하다는 생각이 들었고 도전을 하기 위해서는 선택을 해야만 했습니다. 이제는 가수로서 배우로서 그리고 인간 서주현으로서 새로운 도전을 시작하려고 합니다. 하지만 앞으로도 소녀시대로서 제가 필요한 곳이 있다면 언제든 언니들과 함께하기 위해 최선을 다할 것입니다. 그리고 영원히 소녀시대를 응원하고 함께할 것입니다.. 둥지를 떠나 모든 걸 새롭게 시작함에 있어 불안한 마음도 있지만 수많은 고민 끝에 내리게 된 제 선택에 책임감을 갖고 살아가겠습니다. 그동안 저를 믿어주시고 더없이 뜨겁고 큰 사랑을 주신 수많은 팬 여러분께 진심으로 감사드리고 또 감사합니다.. 언제나 여러분 곁에서 든든하고 자랑스러운 아티스트, 배우 그리고 인간 서주현으로 최선을 다해 살아가는 모습 보여드리겠습니다!!
