Earlier this month, we discussed the controversy between SM Entertainment and Jessica, who is no longer part of popular K-pop girl group, Girls’ Generation. For a while, this controversy seemed to be the only thing that K-Pop fans could talk about. Well it appears it wasn’t only the fans who were concerned. Slowly but surely, more and more K-Pop idols began commenting on the ordeal.
On October 8th, a Korean MBC talk show program called Radio Star invited four Super Junior members (Siwon, Kangin, Leeteuk, and Eunhyuk) for their feature program.
During the program, the Jessica’s controversy was mentioned and one of the show’s MCs stated, “There’s nothing more to say. Isn’t that the end for Jessica’s [career in Girls’ Generation]?”
Leeteuk defended Jessica by saying, “You think this will be the end.”
Needless to say, this statement began stirring a flurry of questions from fans who wondered what he meant by that. Leeteuk later clarified his statement by saying, “You never know what will happen … life goes on as we resolve problems.”
Meanwhile, Girls’ Generation member Sooyoung directly apologized for Jessica’s exit on SBS’s One Night of TV Entertainment, her regularly hosted weekly talk show.
During the show, Sooyoung commented, “Having to relay this sort of sudden news is simply distressing and I’m sorry. For the sake of everyone who loves and support Girls’ Generation, we will try even harder to show a hard-working Girls’ Generation. Please watch over us. I am sorry.”
As of now, only two Girls’ Generation members, Taeyeon and Sooyoung, have ever commented about Jessica’s departure from Girls’ Generation.
