Even before the book was released, it garnered much attention since it dealt with the K-pop industry, written by the idol who has been in the industry for many years.

Some people need to stop acting like the book is the gospel truth 🤣 Some elements will be true, but it is still a fictional book to provide entertainment

People just instantly assumed Jessica's words as 100% truthful when the others never even had the chance to put their stories out there. When it was their faves people loved to cast doubt on bullying victims and sexual assault cases, much worse and more serious situations with victims that could be much more hurt and affected for life, but here? pfft lmao.

Everyone insisting and fighting teeth and bone to say Shine was all fiction last year because it painted them in a way too positive light and talked about sparkles and rainbows and romance and stuff and didn't make the situation so black and white, but now that Bright is "spilling the tea" it's all true.

Gotta love how no one ever wonders about the why's of this whole situation, if true at all. It's always black and white with these. Because there's always gotta be a villain, right? if Taeyeon isn't the evil mastermind it's Jessica the selfish bitch, it's always one way or the other, because people are never more complicated than a cartoon character, right.

We may never know the truth, truly, but i'd rather not draw conclusions from only one pov unless there's conclusive evidence of it, which there isn't. And most importantly, if it is ever proven who was truly in the "wrong" in this situation, i'm not gonna be an asshole about it. Jessica deserves some peace, the girls too. They all had their reasons, some might be more valid than others to many but to me they deserve respect either way.
