After placing first in the Forbes Korea’s Power Celebrity Top 40 list for two consecutive years (2011 and 2012), Girls’ Generation was named the second most powerful celebrity in Forbes’s 2013 ranking. The magazine, now celebrating its tenth year of publication, produces the “Korea’s Power Celebrity 40″ list on an annual basis, defining celebrities as those who are well known amongst the general public. The magazine selects a field of 100 candidates, then ranks the top 40, deciding the order based on a candidate’s standing in the categories of earnings, influence, reputation, and professionalism.
With a total of 32 TV advertisements under their belt in 2012, Girls’ Generation had the most advertising appearances out of any celebrity on the list. However, international sensation PSY prevented them from holding the top spot for a third year in a row. Other notable people on the list included Son Yeonjae at #3, Big Bang at #5, and IU at #8.

SMEnt releases their official statement about Girls`Generation’s Jessica!


SM Entertainment has now released their official statement about SNSD’s Jessica:

Hello. This is SM Entertainment.  We are offering our position on the words on Jessica’s Weibo posted today.  

This coming spring, due to her personal situation, she has notified us she will halt her team promotions with the release of one [more] album.  

Despite Jessica’s sudden notice, the agency and the Girls’ Generation members tried our best and tried to figure out a way that Girls’ Generation’s activities can continue in the best possible direction.

However, in the midst of insufficient clear negotiations regarding conflicts of differences in priorities and interest, Jessica started her fashion business. Due to this, despite ongoing talks, it has come to a point where the team could not be maintained.

Thus, the agency had no choice but to pull up Girls’ Generation’s activities as 8 members earlier than planned, and in the midst of while working out when to announce this, Jessica had posted her words early this morning.

From here on, our agency will continue to support and manage the 8-member Girls’ Generation and Jessica’s individual activities.”

For those who missed it earlier, Jessica’s post was:

Jessica: 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.
