Reason why Jessica releases her 10th anniversary album two days after Girls' Generation's comeback
Jessica is coming back with her brand new album. The former Girls' Generation member will release her third mini album "My Decade" on August 9. Jessica's comeback is drawing much attention from k-pop fans because it will be her 10th anniversary special album.
By the way, you know, Girls' Generation will release its 10th anniversary special album around the same time too. Girls' Generation will release its 6th full album on various online music sites on August 4, while the physical will be released on August 7.
As I said before, not a few Korean netizens are now blaming Jessica for releasing the album. Jessica, who debuted as a members of Girls' Generation in 2007 left the girl group in 2014. At the time, she started her business and she had a boyfriend. She decided to leave Girls' Generation to do something else, and people blamed her because it seemed she didn't care about the other Girls' Generation members and the popular girl group's so many fans. Even though it has been years since she left the team, there still are people who blame her for being irresponsible, and yeah, they also blame her for releasing her 10th anniversary album because they think Jessica's comeback could have bad influence on Girls' Generation's 10th anniversary party.
Well, what's notable about Jessica's comeback is that the female singer decided to release her album two days after the release of Girls' Generation's physical album. You know, August 5 is the exact date of Jessica and Girls' Generation's 10th anniversary, and it seems that there is no reason for Jessica to release her 10th anniversary album on August 9, two days after Girls' Generation's comeback.
Here's a story behind it.
It was a difficult decision for Jessica to decide when she will release her new album because, as I said, not a few Korean netizens are now blaming her for releasing the album for various reasons. So, after a lot of thinking, she eventually decided to release her album two days after Girls' Generation's comeback. Do you know why? Basically, it was because she didn't want to cause damage to Girls' Generation.
August 5 is the exact date of Jessica and Girls' Generation's 10th anniversary, but the problem is that the day is Saturday, while k-pop idols do not usually release their new songs on the weekend because they can't draw much attention from the general public. That's why Girls' Generation decided to release its physical album on August 7. It's natural that Girls' Generation decided to release its album on the day because the day is Monday, the first day of the week. However, Jessica decided not to release her album on the day because she didn't want to cause damage to Girls' Generation by competing with the girl group on k-pop album charts. In addition, she didn't want to be misunderstood that she tries to use Girls' Generation again to promote her new album. That's why she decided to release her 10th anniversary album two days after the release of Girls' Generation's album. If she decided to release her album just one day after the release of Girls' Generation's album, some haters must blame her, saying "She's trying to use Girls' Generation".
Well, I'm sure Jessica made a wise choice because that way, everyone will be happy. Girls' Generation and their fans will be able to celebrate their 10th anniversary, and Jessica and her fans will also be able to celebrate their 10th anniversary, instead of competing or fighting with each other.
Hopefully, both Girls' Generation and Jessica will please their fans by releasing great songs.
