Jessica recently posted on her Weibo account that she has been removed from Girl's Generation (I attached the translation here) This is either a horrible joke and a bad hacker, or she's really leaving. What would SNSD do without Jessica? And what would Krystal do without her sister in the company? Originally, SM responded by saying she didn't post the message, but now they have changed their answer. They are 'checking into' the post to see what is going on. I'll keep this card updated with any more news! _UPDATE_ The Korean media has revealed that Girls’ Generation has departed for their fan meeting in Shenzhen, China with Jessica nowhere in sight! _UPDATE_ SM CONFIRMS JESSICA IS LEAVING SNSD Here's SM's statement: "This spring, Jessica told the company that due to a personal situation, she will be stopping team promotions after the end of one more album promotion," said SM Entertainment. "Despite Jessica′s sudden announcement, the company and the SNSD members persistently worked hard and pondered on how to continue promotions in a good direction for SNSD." "However, before agreements could be made on rising conflicts regarding the priority and interests of SNSD promotions, Jessica began her fashion-related business, and a situation arose where it became difficult to maintain the team despite continuous discussions." "With this, the company decided it had to promote SNSD with eight members sooner than expected, and while it was discussing when to announce the news, Jessica posted her own perspective in the early morning." SM Entertainment wrote last, "From this point onward, the company will unchangingly support and manange SNSD with eight members as well as Jessica′s personal activities."
