SooYoung, SeoHyun and Tiffany Leave SM, What Holds for SNSD’s Future?
SNSD has celebrated their 10th year anniversary and had their comeback with “Holiday Night.” Their comeback this year was something of legendary since it reminded people and fans of the group’s reputation and work of 10 years.
However, though the group seemed to have no trouble during their comeback, the issue of resigning the contract with SM rose to surface and drew attention. Resigning the contract was not the problem of fiscal matters anymore to SNSD members. It was not the matter of trouble between members. They’ve earned enough and went along well enough for 10 years.
It was about continuing their 10 years of reputation or taking different paths and start a 2nd life in their career.
As a result, SooYoung, SeoHyun and Tiffany did NOT resign the contract with the entertainment, while TaeYeon, YoonA, YuRi, Suuny and HyoYeon stayed. SM entertainment has officially stated that SNSD will not be disbanded, however, that does not mean that the eight girls would perform as one. Though the group may exist, the members will not be the same. Also, there is still a chance that the official statement can change. Groups such as 2NE1, Kara, 4MINUTES, SISTAR and miss A have all gone through disbandment recently. It wouldn’t be considered strange if SM reports the group’s disbandment tomorrow.
Complex feelings overwhelmed fans as they heard the news. They understand the three girls leaving and the five girls staying and they’ve all made their own choices. However the feeling of lost still existed. Fans say, whether the group disband or not, the legendary group and the years they’ve spent would forever live in the memories.
SooYoung and SeoHyun are both currently shooting dramas. What holds for their future of SooYoung and SeoHyun after their drama is still unknown, and same goes for Tiffany.
