She addded, "One month before SNSD debuted, SM contacted me but I refused," which made everyone surprised, reports Dkpopnews.
MC Lee Kyung Kyu asked, "Don't you ever feel jealous towards KARA?" which Jaekyung replied, "I'm a bit jealous towards KARA sunbaenims who are Hallyu icons. That time, we have to pratice very hard for a long time, that's why."
