A career with many scandals

After being fired, Jessica ended her contract with SM Entertainment and signed with Coridel Entertainment in 2016. Not long after that, she released her debut solo album With Love, J. After that, she released many more. other music products. However, the female singer did not appear on TV shows or music shows to promote the product.

During a fanmeeting to promote her single Wonderland, Jessica received a question about her reasons for not participating in TV shows. The female singer replied, "I also want to participate in music programs. If I say this, do you understand what I mean?". Since then, the audience has not seen Jessica perform on musical stages. The public thinks that after leaving SM Entertainment, Jessica was blacklisted by this company and that's why she could not perform on Korean television stations.

Mix Nine on JTBC or Beauty Bible are rare shows she has appeared on over the years.

During many years of leaving SNSD, Jessica also had many troubles. Coridel Capital Management has contracted with two management companies to promote Jessica's activities in China. In 2019, the two companies mentioned above filed in a Beijing court to ask Jessica for compensation for not complying with the contract. Jessica's side decided to transfer the case to the Korean court. However, the Korean Supreme Court dismissed the case. She lost the lawsuit and had to pay $ 1.6 million.

In October 2020, Jessica released the novel Shine. The book tells the story of Rachel Kim, a Korean-American. Rachel Kim has an arduous journey to become a star at the famous entertainment company DB Entertainment.

It's interesting that the former member of one of the most popular K-pop g.irl groups turns to writing. But what makes the reader more curious is that her debut novel is filled with similarities to SNSD and SM Entertainment. The main character is the same as Jessica. They are all Korean-American and trained for 7 years. Jessica even told Time Magazine: "Rachel is of course my mirror image, because this novel was inspired by my own life."

Jessica's book caused a heated debate among SNSD fans. The English version of the novel, released in the US, depicts Rachel as an innocent g.irl, full of hope, dreams and passion. While the other members of SNSD are described as always jealous of her. As the book also contained negative stories about DB Entertainment, some SNSD fans claimed that Jessica "sabotaged" the group and SM Entertainment.

Audiences criticized the novel as "an irresponsible act of not caring about the members of the group" or "using the past to promote themselves". After the debate between the two sides became increasingly tense, Shine's PR team removed the autobiographical word from the advertising content. SM Entertainment declined to comment on the matter.

After leaving SNSD, Jessica focused more on running the fashion brand Blanc&Eclare. Blanc&Eclare was founded by Jessica and the company CEO who is also the boyfriend of the singer, Tyler Kwon, in 2014, shortly after she left SNSD. The brand is growing and now has more than 60 locations worldwide. The company announced that Blanc&Eclare achieved sales of 20 billion won in 2019.

In January 2021, Jessica opened her first food store called Clareau. The store is located in a building in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul. This is a famous luxury, expensive area in Korea.

At the end of 2021, Osen reported that Blanc & Eclare was involved in a lawsuit worth 8 billion won (about 6.79 million USD) after failing to repay loans. Osen said that BLANC Group, which runs Blanc&Eclare, borrowed $3 million from Spectra SPC in October 2016 and another $1 million in May 2017. The loan was then transferred to Joyking Enterprise in August 2021. Joyking Enterprise has filed a lawsuit against Blanc&Eclare for failing to pay principal and interest totaling 8 billion won.

At that time, speaking to Chosun newspaper, Tyler Kwon said that Jessica was not involved in the incident. The singer's boyfriend insists he has complied with the terms. However, in 2020, the situation was difficult because of Covid-19, so Tyler Kwon reached an agreement with Spectra SPC to extend the payment.

A series of attitude scandals in the past

"Ice princess" Jessica has many times been caught in scandals of love and bravado.

She was criticized for "claiming" in the event.

This person said, Jessica's fashion company - Blanc & Eclare - invited many journalists to attend the event to create buzz for the company.

But instead of being serious and friendly with reporters, Jessica was very cocky. Not only was being late made the fan meeting start later than scheduled, but Jessica's company also made a "demand" that journalists were not allowed to take photos during the event, and only had 10 seconds to do so.

In July 2016, Jessica continued to be involved in a scandal of unprofessionalism in the way she worked when she was 15 minutes late to the autograph event of her own fashion brand. Things wouldn't have become a matter of debate if Jessica hadn't calmly strode lightly, engrossed in selfies even though she was late.
