[Breaking] Thunder is leaving after contract expires; MBLAQ to continue as trio




A rather heartbreaking day indeed for A+. While fans are still not getting over Lee Joon's news of leaving MBLAQ, here comes Thunder withdrawal too.

Thunder is reported to have his contract expiration date same as Lee Joon, and here comes the worst as Thunder decided not to renew his contract and will pursue a solo career in the future.

In this case, MBLAQ are not making their comeback with three members remaining. As for fans' consideration, there are also no plans of recruiting new members. Finally, for their upcoming 'Curtain Call' concert in November, it's not yet clear if Lee Joon and Thunder are participating.

MBLAQ G.O. tweets 'selfishness' following Lee Joon's withdrawal news



Short time after news reports that Lee Joon is leaving MBLAQ after his contract ends to focus more on his acting career, fellow member G.O. has tweeted a rather vague message seems to be related to the news.

He tweets, "Eventually, consideration is what one must endure facing selfishness." Minutes later he follows up "People who know understand all. Believe what you see as of now and as the time passes by you'll understand."



Though the message is rather ambiguous and not directed to anyone, with the timely coincidence, fans are assuming that this is what he has to say in response to Lee Joon's departure from the group.

What do you think?

[BREAKING] Lee Joon to leave MBLAQ and continues career as an actor




Starnews reports today that MBLAQ member Lee Joon is leaving the group to focus more with his acting career.

On 13th, according to his agency J.Tune Camp, Lee Joon's exclusive contract has ended and the idol-turned-actor has decided not to renew for the reason that he's going to focus more on his acting career over being an idol.

The show began with Gary singing "zotto mola" and "shower later", followed by a warm welcome in Cantonese and saying "I love you" to all his audiences. He was particularly touched by his fans, who prepared "dim sums" for him on his arrival.


After playing a few games with audiences, he sang "you're the answer to a guy like me". When he invited Jung-in to perform the song, "your scent", audiences started to scream and cheer, waving their glow sticks as well as singing along.

Throughout the showcase, Gary and Jung-in also sang "bicycle", "the girl who can't breakup and the guy who can't leave", "drunken night tune" and "rush".

Jessica opposes SM's statement and releases her side of the story



Jessica has released her own statement after being kicked out of her group SNSD on September 29, opposing SM Entertainment's explanation released yesterday.

In her statement posted through her fashion business BLANC homepage, she clears out that she didn't ask to leave SNSD first but is asked to leave the group by the company and other members.

Read the full statement of Jessica below,

Hello, this is Jessica.

On September 29, I was asked to leave SNSD by the company and I couldn't hide my pain and surprise so I've decided to reveal my side. 
SNSD's activities have always been my top priority as the time I was SNSD member more than my personal affair or business. However despite of my hardwork and perseverance to the group, I received a notice to leave the group from the company. 
Ever since the beginning stages of my business preparations, I have completely discussed and even given consideration by SM and members in multiple events. 
Since early August until the launching of BLANC, I've received permission and they agreed to let me do my business at the same time. I was even congratulated by members as I carried out my business. 
However, one month after the launching, members suddenly changed their minds and by September, they've called for a meeting and unreasonably asked to me either quit my business or quit being SNSD.

I've never neglected and hardworking done SNSD promotions after receiving permission form the company and told them I cannot quit the business in just one month after the launching because of a business contract with a business partner. 
In result, I appealed that their request is unreasonable to make me choose. Having become SNSD members was the best thing that happened in my life and I've never ever thought of leaving. 
Still confused, I visited the CEO on September 16 and explained my part and once again received consideration to continue my business 
However, I received a notification os September 29 from the company to leave SNSD and because of this I was unable to join the fanmeeting in Shenzhen, China on 30th. I've been out of all SNSD activities. 
On top of everything, I was deeply hurt and couldn't hide my pain after being asked to leave by my company and members whom I've shared my passion and affection for more than 15 years, for only reason I started my business. 
I'm apologizing for making fans worry so much although it's not my intention. I'm asking for your understanding that I didn't want this situation.situation. I've always support SNSD and will do so in the future. Thank you for supporting me endlessly and for loving me.

Jessica Jung

With her side released, which totally contrasting SM's story, fans are in dazed to know what really happened and who is telling the truth.

SM Entertainment releases statement, 'SNSD to continue with 8 members'




SM Entertainment has finally released their official statement regarding the issue of Jessica's withdrawal from the group.

The agency wrote,

"Hello. This is SM Entertainment. We are giving our position regarding Jessica's weibo post today.

This coming spring, Jessica has informed us that she will halt her group activities after one album, due to her personal affairs.

Although the notice is too sudden, the agency and SNSD members have tried the best way looking into how SNSD's activities could go on without any problems.

However, in the middle of inconsistencies and lack of negotiations about the conflicts arising due to her priorities and interests, Jessica has launched her fashion business. With this cause, amidst of negotiations, the group has come to the point where it can't be maintained.

Therefore, leaving the agency with no choice, it has been decided to go on with SNSD's activities as 8 members earlier than planned. Also, while everything is still being worked out on when to announce the situation, Jessica has already posted this morning.

From this point forward, the agency is going to support and work on SNSD with 8 members and Jessica's personal activities."

We hope for the best of SNSD and Jessica's success!
