SNSD has been understandably quiet since it came to light that the group decided/felt-forced-to kick Jessica Jung out of the group.
SM Entertainment has said their piece. Jessica has had hers. And while the group has shed tears on stage and have people dissect it like amateur Freudians, Sooyoung kinda, sorta, not-really addressed the situation and apologized to fans on Midnight TV Entertainment after being lobbed a softball by her co-host (because that’s what you do when your in K-Pop – issue infinite numbers of apologies to fans):
After a summary of the incident was given, Sooyoung’s cohost Yoon Do Hyun mentioned that this would be a good opportunity for Sooyoung to speak up about what happened.
Sooyoung said, “I am so sorry and grieved that such an incident happened so suddenly. We will work hard for those who love and support us. Please continue to watch over us. I am sorry.”
Yeah, it’s unsurprising that Sooyoung didn’t shed much light on what actually happened but the one thing that does stand out about the statement is that Sooyoung states that the incident “happened so suddenly.” That falls in line with the tenor of both Jessica’s statement (“However, in early September, after only a month since the launching, the members suddenly changed their position“) and SM’s (“Thus, the agency had no choice but to pull up Girls’ Generation’s activities as 8 members earlier than planned”). In all, though we may never know exactly what went down with SNSD, it sure seems like Jessica Jung’s removal wasn’t well-thought out by any party involved.
