It is now being reported that Jessica Jung may have terminated her contract with SM Entertainment. Since this is basically a rumor that has sprung from Jessica’s Chinese fan cafe, take it with a grain of salt.
The rumor is based on a Weibo post made by Jessica’s official fan club in China, Jung SooYeon Bar, on January 28, which states that according to Jessica’s Hong Kong PR manager Mr. Ting, Jessica’s contract with SM has been terminated.
The move would be unsurprising if true. There was no way that Jessica and SM were going to work well together after SM decided to remove Jessica from SNSD.
Jessica has expressed interest in a solo career given that she possesses “the blood of an entertainer” so it will be interesting to see what she’ll do next if she has indeed been freed from her SM Entertainment contract. Jessica has largely been focused on her fashion line BLANC & ECLARE and there haven’t been many rumors about her music career as of late (outside of an odd appearance alongside Ja Rule and a statement by a Venetian Casino manager).
In the mean time, we can at least bask in the glory that is the Ice Princess shooting down media members like a particularly prickly Marshawn Lynch. This gem occurred during a meet-and-greet with Chinese reporters on Wednesday and is further proof that the world needs more Jessica Jung in it right now.
Yuri who? Jealous what?
Long live the Ice Princess. May her hopefully inevitable tell-all book be a New York Times bestseller.
