On the afternoon of October 1st, immediately following their return from China and the shocking news that Jessica would be leaving the group, Girls’ Generation members Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Seohyun attended a fan signing event in Korea.
The TaeTiSeo trio, who have actively been promoting their newest mini album and title song “Holler,” reportedly suddenly broke into tears in the midst of the fan meeting.
As they saw the girls crying, the fans too broke into a wave of tears and they all cried together.
As she was crying, Taeyeon told the fans, “From the very beginning, I’ve never wanted anything but to look after Girls’ Generation. I am sorry.” Taeyeon closed out her statement with the plead, “please trust us just one more time.”
Tiffany and Seohyun did not make statements, but continued to weep quietly as Taeyeon spoke for the group.
The news of Jessica’s departure from Girls’ Generation was a huge shock to the K-pop community, and involved a whirlwind of conflicting statements from both sides. To learn more about what happened, see our moonROK article: “Jessica & SM: The Rundown.“
