Unsurprisingly, the ever bold MCs of JTBC's 'Ssul Jeon' tackled the controversial topic of Jessica's departure from Girls' Generation and apparent strife with SM Entertainment on October 9.
Kim Gu Ra stated, "When you look at conflicting situations for idols, the member in question has no one to lean on but the fans and other members, but in this case, the members turned their backs on her, right? If you look at it from the big picture, it is not a beautiful farewell. I felt that, as expected, all groups are just groups for profit."
Kang Yong Suk said what was true to everybody, "I thought she got hacked."
Kim Gu Ra also said, "The other members are acting and going on TV, but did Jessica not distinguish herself with fashion? If what Jessica said is true, it could be unfair for her. Their individual livelihoods were foreseen. If you can't do it together, separating is also for the future."
Park Ji Yoon stated, "It was an eventful year for only SM, from EXO to Girls' Generation.... I keep thinking of Heechul."
Heo Ji Woong brought up the two-months spacing between each controversy, mentioning Kris's departure in May, Sulli's dating in July, and Jessica's departure in September. He said, "That means something is going to happen in November. I think that maybe one foreign member might cause some mischief."
Lee Yoon Suk also talked about past 'Ssul Jeon' member, Heechul, saying, "Before Heechul left 'Ssul Jeon,' he said there were a couple things that would be coming out. Last month, when we ate out for sea eel, he said there was not much time left. [Jessica's departure] must be one of them."
Park Ji Yoon revealed she kept questioning him about when the things Heechul hinted at would be coming out.
Meanwhile, on 'Radio Star' yesterday, Super Junior leader Leeteuk had expressed his disbelief that the Jessica situation would be the last thing to happen.
Kim Gu Ra had asked him, "There's nothing more coming out, right? Isn't Jessica the end of it?"
Leeteuk had replied, "You think that's the end, right?" causing a big reaction.
Flustered, he continued, "You can never tell when it comes to people," causing the other Super Junior members to say, "He's being weird. Should we drag him out?"
