With Jessica set to debut in a Chinese girl group, how are Korean netizens reacting?


Jessica, a former member of Girls' Generation, is set to debut in a Chinese girl group.

According to an August 2 report by local Chinese media, Jessica ranked 2nd in the final rankings in the recording broadcast of season 3 of the girl group audition program 'Sisters Who Make Waves,' which was held the day before.

The first place was won by Taiwanese singer and actress Cyndi Wang, and it was reported that Gillian Chung from Hong Kong girl group 'Twins' was included in the debut group. It was revealed that the results were leaked by the audience who attended the show. If the reported leaks are accurate, Jessica is set to debut in a Chinese girl group.

'Sisters Who Make Waves Season 3' is a show that shows the process of former girl group members over the age of 30 re-debuting as a five-member girl group through competition. The final episode will be officially broadcasted on August 5th.

After seeing the news that Jessica is set to debut with a Chinese girl group, Korean netizens responded, "I guess Jessica is being dragged here and there because of money," "Jessica, are you doing it part-time?" "If she just waited three years, she would have been more successful still having the title of being 'Girls' Generation,' and would have achieved the successful business she always desired," "I guess Jessica needed money," "After having all that debt due to her involvement with that scammer and leaving Girl's Generation, she has to do this in China," "It's unfortunate, she could have been more successful if she stayed with GG," "If she continued to do her fashion business, I would have thought she really wanted to do fashion so she left the group but she wrote books and is doing YouTube, now she's in a girl group in China?" "Man, how did she become like this? She used to be the top 3 in Girls' Generation," "This is an indescribable feeling I am having... She's debuting with a Chinese girl group while Girls' Generation is making a comeback on the 5th," "I think she made some poor decisions when she was younger," and "I feel she wouldn't go this far if she didn't have debt..."

I don’t see the issue with this? Jessica has dedicated 14 years to the idol life and she’s just continuing what’s she has always done. A lot of people push the blame solely on ot8, but SM’s the one who’s actually blocking Jess from the Korean entertainment industry

And ngl, with the achievements and accomplishments under her belt, I also felt a little sad at first that Jessica was on an audition show, but she’s simply just continuing her dreams and no on should criticize her for that
