I’m going to leave with this

SNSD as a whole has done so much for KPOP. They are literally the nation’s girl group. They are known as the queens of KPOP for a reason. So, just because three members left and a possible disbandment gives nobody the right to downgrade their achievements because as 8 and 9, they’ve done a lot. So let’s list them right here.

-First Girl Group to win 100 Music Show awards
-First Girl Group EVER to win a DIsk Daesang
-They hold the record for the most Daesangs for a Girl Group
-They were the first Girl Group to have 100,000,000 views on YouTube, and has 5 with over 100 million and more approaching.
-Their Debut song is used in Korea as a legit ANTHEM for change
-THEY WERE AROUND FOR 10 YEARS and yet they stood tall and can still compete with rookie groups
-First Group to perform on American Late Night TV
-They have sold almost 95 million records; and more than 4 million physical sales, most for any girl group
-Held the longest music show wins (9) weeks on Music bank with their Iconic song Gee
 -Irrelevant but Hit me up when you faves have a LEGACY tab on Wiki
- Girls’ Generation along with the Wonder Girls, 2NE1 and more inspired your favorite artists; so don’t you ever disrespect them.

These are honestly the only ones I can think of on the top of my head so anyone add more, because there are so many more.

I will always love and support SNSD as a whole, and solo. I respect their decisions. 

Right now, in the future, forever; Girls’ Generation

Some 2nd generation K-pop groups’ achievements, just in case anyone didn’t know or forgot~

Note:
These are just some achievements! There are way many more achievements made by these groups and this list doesn’t even mention the rest of the 2nd generation groups! Let’s not disregard all their hard work and impact on K-pop! 

Thank you, ladies.

I’m mad that that 10th anniversary comeback -that trainwreck- is how we leave things. SNSD deserved better than that. As OT8, they deserved more. I don’t think things would’ve turned out differently if they got the legendary comeback they deserved -because obviously these members made up their minds long ago- BUT it’s just really fucked up that that’s their last hoorah. They should’ve gone out with a bang and by “they” I mean Seohyun, Sooyoung and Tiffany. But considering SNSD will most likely disband altogether soon or will surely lose half its remaining fanbase, I suppose I mean the group as well. And there won’t be another comeback or chance to rectify that situation now.

I’ve been suspecting Tiffany and Sooyoung were the members who hadn’t resigned. I’m taken aback by Seohyun, though. However, I completely get it, SM was holding her back. Seohyun has so much ambition, I didn’t think she’d remain tied down to SM or SNSD for much longer, tbh. 

Tiffany, that’s a loyal bitch, so jot that down. She dedicated her life to this group, hardcore. SM fucked that up. She was so ride or die for this group. I’m actually so happy for her or, I will be once I’m over this heartbreak. They’ve never done right by her and after last year, honestly, fuck them. Tiffany leaving SM is one of the bravest things I’ve seen anyone do in a while.

Sooyoung, I have no idea what happened there. Perhaps she wants to be free to marry. That’s not reductive or sexist to say because she literally wouldn’t be able to marry as long as she was an idol. And this contract of course would’ve been for years, how long should she wait? Leaving SM isn’t ending her career but it is breaking one of the chains of idol life. If she wants to make acting her focus and move forward in her relationship, good for her. Actually, doesn’t matter her reasons for leaving, that’s her business and good for her.

I’m proud of Jessica, Tiffany, Seohyun, and Sooyoung for putting themselves first. It’s not selfish to realize you’re not getting what you need out of what is essentially a business arrangement, especially when the arrangement is with a toxic company like SM (think about how they literally sabotaged the 10-anniversary comeback just to spite the girls who are leaving). And it’s not selfish if you realize it’s simply time for the next chapter in your life.

I said before that I will always be thankful to the girls no matter what happened with the contracts. They’ve given up 11 years of their lives. They gave us 11 years of their lives and the entirety of their 20s pretty much. That’s more than most girl groups have had to sacrifice, the burden of being one of the last ggs standing, I suppose.

SNSD might but done, certainly the SNSD we have come to love is done. But they’re legends, that can’t be taken away.
