There was a bittersweet story behind the Christmas tree prop on Taeyeon’s special live – the magic of Christmas stage. The Christmas-themed stage was performed from December 22 until the 24th and a small Christmas tree shone brightly with her on stage during all three performances.

Taeyeon brought up her sadness about Jonghyun throughout the final concert.

She thanked her friend who went on a long journey and said, “I won’t be going anywhere.

“I will keep singing to remember Jonghyun through his music and so that he won’t be lonely.”  She asked her fans to do the same and to continue to cheer her on.

“Even though I saw you off on your last journey..I still can’t believe this is real..the Jonghyun I’ve seen for the last 10 years was always bright and passionate.

You were an amazing person that gave laughter and joy to people around you..I respected that you sang with everything you had on stage and loved that when you were the most humane and warm person I knew off-stage.

I always thought of you as such a strong and awesome person..I feel stupid for being so limited in the way I saw you and I regret it..I was so close to you yet why couldn’t I see that side of you..why couldn’t I be there for you..how hard things must have been..

I only found out now that you were enduring pain I can’t even imagine all alone..I’m so sorry..and you did so well..don’t hurt anymore and I pray that you can rest in peace..to the ever shining Jonghyun oppa..I will remember you forever..”

Girls’ Generation, KARA and Wonder Girls {K-Pop} Girl-Group Member Departures

Reblogged By:De De Tillman;  K-Pop – K-Drama;  Celebrity Blogger

On September 2014, Girls’ Generation became a group of 8, following steps of other recent girl-group member departures such as KARA and Wonder Girls.

Idols have been on an upward trend as of late, with the global power of Hallyu spreading across the world. From concerts in the US to Europe, there’s no doubt that K-Pop is a major trend. But now the first global wave of K-Pop is going through the hardest times of its history, and Girls’ Generation just joined the row.

While the very first idols of Korea in 1990’s suffered break-ups after 5 years, the 2nd generation of idols are seeing a massive loss of members.

Wonder Girls went through several member losses and recruitments, starting withHyuna, Sunmi, and now Sunye and Sohee. Although new recruits have been made, Wonder Girls never stood up again like their past, and after Sunye’s pregnancy and Sohee’s change in career to acting, the future of Wonder Girls seems quite bleak.

Kara recently made a new start after recruting their new member Youngji. Similar to Wonder Girls, Kara also faced departure of two core members, Kang Jiyoung andNicole Jung (Edit: KARA also lost member Kim Sunghee in 2008, 1 year after their debut). The remaining members and DSP Entertainment soon decided to recruit a new member through reality programmed audition, and eventually chose Youngji.

Although the two groups are not as popular as they used to be, they are definitely trying new methods. Wonder Girls is now focusing on Solo performances of the members, with Sunmi and Yenny successfully standing up as solo artists. Kara on the other hand is gaining positive responses with the recruit of their new member Youngji.

What will Girls’ Generation show us? The news of Jessica leaving the group surely was shocking, but nonetheless Girls’ Generation is still commencing their activities without her. The biggest issues Girls’ Generation faces is the absence of Jessica’s powerful vocals, which were key points in numerous Girls’ Generation songs.

What does this mean for the future of both the remaining members and departed members?

Jessica {Girls’ Generation} I Was Given a Notice Of Departure From Girls’ Generation

In the latest breaking news, Jessica has finally broken her silence after posting on Weibo and released an update to the media in the form of a letter.

Jessica’s letter comes just moments after Tyler Kwon updated his Weibo account, sending an encouraging message to Jessica as well as repeating that he has no plans to get married in the near future.

He then sent a message to Jessica on Weibo stating, “Hey, hang in there~! The truth about what really happened will be known – we all got your back!”

Jessica’s message reads as below:

Hello, this is Jessica.

I was given a notice of departure from Girls’ Generation by my agency on September 29th, and I cannot hide my shocked and upset heart about this, so I’m here to reveal my feelings.

I have always put the activities of Girls’ Generation’s before my business and personal life as a member of Girls’ Generation. However, despite my efforts for the team, the agency asked me to leave [the team].

As I was planning on creating the business I have shown a lot of interested in before, I sufficiently consulted SM as well as the members regarding my preparations many times, asking for their understanding.

Up until the beginning of August when I was launching “BLANC,” I made agreements and received permission from SM, and even congratulations from the members.

However, in early September, only a month following the launching, the members suddenly changed positions and held a meeting, telling me to either quit my business or leave Girls’ Generation without any justifiable reason.

I explained that I had already received permission from the agency, that I had never neglected Girls’ Generation’s activities, and I could not suddenly stop my business due to my contract with my business partner after only a month.

Ultimately, I pleaded that it was unfair to make me choose [between the group and her business]. Becoming a Girls’ Generation member was the best thing in my life, and I’ve never thought about quitting.

Shocked, I met with the agency’s CEO on September 16th about my position, and again, confirmed their permission for me to continue my business.

However, on September 29th, I was given a one-sided notice asking me to leave Girls’ Generation. Because of this, I was unable to attend the fan meeting in China on September 30th, and I have been excluded from following Girls’ Generation scheduled activities.

I have received great pain and cannot hide my sadness when I was asked by the agency and my fellow members, whom I’ve spent 15 years with, putting in all my passion and efforts, to leave Girls’ Generation just because I am starting my own business.

I also want to apologize for causing concern to all the fans. Understand that this is not the situation I imagined. I have always treasured Girls’ Generation and will continue to do so. Thank you for always supporting and love me.supporting and loving me.

Sincerely,
Jessica

Baekhyun {Kpop EXO} Sincere Apology To Fans

Since news broke out of EXO Baekhyun and Girls’ Generation Taeyeon’s relationship, EXO has been on tour and Baekhyun had not released a message to fans.

Now, he has left a message to fans on Instagram.

 

Hello, this is Baekhyun. Although it’s very late.. I’m leaving these words here to tell all the fans that I’m sorry for the disappointment and pain I’ve given you. 

I’ve written and erased my words many times, but I felt as if I was just making excuses and didn’t have the courage to express my heart and resolve the misunderstandings.. I also thought that just saying this would also be meaningless.. So even now, I’m worried and my heart is uneasy that you might be hurt again because of this post and that I might regret putting this up.. But, I really wanted to express my sincere feelings so I’m writing this post. 

I’m so sorry that I caused pain to fans who have always been precious to me. And I’m sorry again that I hurt you more through the misunderstandings that came from this situation. 

I wish that.. our fans will no longer hurt.. Although I’m really undeserving, I will do my best to slowly approach you all again.. And EXO is a name that is so precious to me. I want to tell you that I’ve never thought of EXO lightly.

I will continue to strive to become EXO’s Baekhyun who does his best on and off stage. I hope that these words at least will come off sincere.

Sometimes the grand life of a star isn’t all that great at least according to Girls’ Generation (SNSD) member Jessica.

On May 22, fashion magazine Elle revealed a photo with the singer, who seems to be everywhere lately, wearing a white jacket and looking chic and modern. Her normally neat, straight hair gave off a bedhead vibe, while her vibrantly highlighted eyes looked fierce, highlighted with vibrant colors. The look all came together to portray a confident and sexy woman, coming into her own.

During her interview with Elle, Jessica said that when people first see her, they think she is a cold and scary person, but in reality, close friends have said she is kind-hearted and a bit of an oddball.

While talking about SNSD, who is currently preparing for its Japanese album, Jessica confessed that since her debut, she has never gone on a blind date. “I want to go on a normal blind date, eating tteokbokki (spicy rice cakes) on the streets and playing at amusement parks.” She added.

When asked if there was a Jessica that she only knows, Jessica replied, “Shouldn’t I be the only one to know that secret?”

Jessica talked about wanting to have a happy family of her own later in life and more. The rest of the interview and pictorial will be available in the June edition of Elle.

After years of silent envy, East Coast K-pop fans finally caught a break with the crazy amount of K-pop concerts in the fall of 2011. But now it’s the West Coast’s time once again, and in a big way.

 

 

SM Entertainment’s stable of huge artists like Girls’ Generation, Super Junior, and TVXQ will be traveling to Los Angeles, California for a second time after their first appearance back in 2010. While the Hollywood Bowl and Staples Center get most of the attention from K-pop artists in SoCal, the venue this time around will be the Honda Center.

 

 

LA will be only the first stop of many for the tour which kicks off on May 20. The tour is also set to go to Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, and various other Asian venues.

 

Speculation as to whether EXO will be at the concert in LA is all over the place, but there hasn’t been any official word as to the lineup of artists set to attend. The LA concert is also to be held jointly with MBC, with a broadcast titled “MBC Korean Music Wave in LA-SMTOWN SPECIAL!” to air sometime after the concert.

 

Tickets go on sale April 5, so be sure to get yours as soon as possible! Stay tuned for lineup details!

Jessica Jung (Girls’ Generation) Plastic Surgery Or Wild Romance On Why Her Face Looks Different (Photos)

SM Entertainment has spoken out against escalating rumors that Jessica of Girls’ Generation recently went under the knife.

 
Yesterday, a shot of Jessica in Malaysia circulated online along with a comparison shot of the singer in her role on the KBS drama “Wild Romance.”

 
Netizens who examined the picture instantly started saying that the 22-year-old star looked remarkably different in the two shots.
In the screen capture of the drama, Jessica looks significantly slimmer than she does in the up-to-date picture, where her face appears rounder.

 
“Of course she hasn’t had any work done. She was just gaunt for a while because she was busy with the drama and jet-setting around the world,” a representative of SM Entertainment told Star News on Wednesday.

 
“After the drama, Jessica was able to put on weight due to her improved health.” Jessica starred in the drama that aired from Jan. 4 until Feb. 23.

Additional: Jung is best known as “Jessica from Girls’ Generation or SNSD” minus her last name . She was born in San Francisco, California and she is fluent in English and Korean. Girls’ Generation formed in 2007 under S.M. Entertainment and it’s nine members in this girl group.

As for as Jessica having plastic surgery, her role in the drama “Wild Romance” makes her look different from what fans are used to seeing which could be the reason why her face looks little different. Why did SM Entertainment speak on her behalf? Does Jessica appear different as if she’s had plastic surgery or is it her dramatic role?
