Regarding the rumors of Jessica being kicked out of SNSD, SM Entertainment made an official statement that SNSD will be promoting as 8 members with Jessica leaving the group.

On September 30, SM Entertainment made an official statement regarding Jessica′s leave from SNSD.

"This spring, Jessica told the company that due to a personal situation, she will be stopping team promotions after the end of one more album promotion," said SM Entertainment. "Despite Jessica′s sudden announcement, the company and the SNSD members persistently worked hard and pondered on how to continue promotions in a good direction for SNSD."

"However, before agreements could be made on rising conflicts regarding the priority and interests of SNSD promotions, Jessica began her fashion-related business, and a situation arose where it became difficult to maintain the team despite continuous discussions."

"With this, the company decided it had to promote SNSD with eight members sooner than expected, and while it was discussing when to announce the news, Jessica posted her own perspective in the early morning."

SM Entertainment wrote last, "From this point onward, the company will unchangingly support and manange SNSD with eight members as well as Jessica′s personal activities."

Earlier at 5AM KST on this day, Jessica posted on her Weibo, "I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today, I′m no longer a member. I′m devastated - my priority and love is to serve as a member of GG, but for no justifiable reason, I am being forced out."

Girls Generations Jessica dropped a bomb on fans in the wee hours of the morning, declaring in both Korean and English that she will be leaving the girl group.

In her blog post, she mused, "I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today, I'm no longer a member. I'm devastated - my priority and love is to serve as a member of GG, but for no justifiable reason, I am being forced out."

Questions over the legitimacy of the post have been raised given recent reports that all nine members extended their contracts with their label, S.M. Entertainment.

The company has yet to issue a statement while fans have voiced their hopes that Jessica has merely been hacked and will continue to remain in the group.

According to Singtao Daily, the singer, who attended a bakery opening ceremony in Macau recently, said that though he does not have the details about the layoffs, he refused to believe that TVB lost a lot of money after the World Cup.

 

"We paid our own airfares to Brazil. We didn't use much of the company's fund," said Alan, who also took part in the programme.

 

Said Alan, the company also invited him to participate in a travelling programme with Nat Chan and Bennett Pang in Australia after hearing that he would be holding a concert in the country, and did not pay him any remuneration for his appearance.

 

"The company wanted to add more appeal to the programme, but I wasn't paid for it."

 "As I thought about letting her go, she came back," said Chapman To recently, upon asked about Dada Chan's previous bout with depression.

 

According to a report on HK Top Ten, the two stars, who appeared on iCable's "Film Montage" to promote their new movie "Flirting in the Air" recently, talked about working together for the fifth time.

 

"When she said that she would retire from showbiz, I looked all over for her and urged her not to leave, but she continued to 'dive'," said Chapman.

 

Luckily, the actress returned after taking a break in November last year, and they were able to collaborate yet again on the Aman Chang movie.

 

"I needed a break to digest what is happening at the time," said Dada.

 

The actress also added that she is still in the learning process and hoped to continue to get more experience to add on to her acting skill.

 

"I hope to be able to play each and every character the best that I can. If I don't perform well, I would rather not play the character," she said.

Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang recently criticised TVB's measure of firing 50 employees despite the company's stable financial condition, as reported on Singtao Daily.

 

The actor, who wore black in support of the protest held by members of the TVB Staff Association in Tseung Kwan O on 25 September, stated that he missed the era when TVB was under the direction of the late Sir Run Run Shaw.

 

"I have been with TVB for more than 20 years. It's like a big family to me," said Eric, adding that he is perplexed as to why the company fired 50 staff after hiring over 100 new employees earlier this year.

 

"You're fired if you got sick, and you're fired if you're retiring next year. Why won't the company just move people to different departments instead?" he asked.

 

Though Eric believed that the layoffs have nothing to do with the company's financial condition, and said, "If we all grew with each other, this problem would not have occurred. But the executives never grew with their employees."

 

Asked if he is not worried that his support for the protest would scar his good relationship with TVB, Eric stressed that he is doing it for the betterment of the company.

Chinese diva Faye Wong has been under wide media attention following her rumoured reconciliation with Hong Kong actor Nicholas Tse last week. She was in Taiwan to film an advertisement yesterday where 40 crew members were mobilised to guard her from the media initially.

When the 45-year-old arrived at the farm in Hualien in the morning, members of the media swarmed the venue and another 40 crew members were added to keep journalists at bay. There were barricades at the location and security guards were deployed to ensure Faye's safety.

Despite the strict set-up, some journalists managed to catch a glimpse of the singer, who was dressed in a white shirt showing off her slender legs. Faye was seen touching her tummy occasionally, further highlighting her pregnancy rumours even though her manager had denied it previously.

The shoot took four hours, after which Faye retired to the hotel without having lunch.

In addition, it was reported that even workers of the farm were restricted from entering the premises during the shoot, causing much unhappiness and inconvenience.

The S.H.E member could not enjoy herself at her wedding in 2011 after suffering from severe burns from an explosion on-set





821D614DF43B271DA3E96B7979DE5B.jpg



S.H.E member Selina Jen was badly injured after an accidental explosion on-set while filming musical drama I Have a Date with Spring in 2010. She then wedded her husband, Richard Chang, in 2011 'without recovering fully'.

Selina was 'unable to stand for long during the ceremony and the skin on my legs were hard and taut, I was not able to enjoy myself'. She also shared that their honeymoon to Bali last year was not as relaxing, as it was in the midst of Richard's busy work schedule.

The 33-year-old hopes to hold another ceremony in 2021 ' her 10th wedding anniversary ' to make up for the loss.

The singer felt blessed that Richard, whom she had been dating for three years, did not forsake her after the incident and even told her he was 'afraid to lose her'. The incident had strengthened their love and trust for each other.

The couple have plans to start a family after Selina completes her latest album at the end of the year.

In addition, Chinese actor Yu Haoming, who was also wounded in the explosion, remains psychologically scarred. He even reportedly confessed to 'not having a sex life for four years since the explosion' after a bout of drinking even though he was seen in steamy scenes female co-star Sookie Pan in Chinese drama The Loving Home.

Haoming's father was furious and accused the staff of the drama, whom the actor was drinking with, that they were 'making up stories'.
