Jessica Jung (정수연)’s newly-launched book “Bright” (a sequel to her first novel, “Shine”) is currently creating a stir on social media. Many fans are convinced that the story is loosely based on her shocking departure from Girls’ Generation back in 2014.
In particular, fans were also buzzing about a part of the book that also appeared to hint at a supposed bad blood between two members of SNSD and Jessica’s younger sister, Krystal Jung. In the book, the lead character Rachel is portrayed as a member of the fictional idol group Girls Forever.
In this particular chapter (shared by Twitter user Sicachu), Rachel bumps into her younger sibling, Leah, backstage. It’s understood that the two sisters are signed under the same company, DB Entertainment. The latter is part of a five-member girl group called SayGo. During their meeting, Leah gives a quick bow and waves to the Girls Forever members. Most girls were friendly with her, except for two – Mina and Lizzie. They just stared at Leah with a “tight-lipped” smile.
As Rachel pulls Leah aside, she overhears Lizzie and Mina talking badly about her sister. The two girls blasted her for not respecting the seniors. Rachel then points out that this always happens when Leah and the Girls Forever members meet. According to her, some of them resent on how Leah got into DB Entertainment and quickly made her debut in the Hallyu scene.
Apparently, some of the girls have also been hoping to get their sisters into the company. It was also noted that Lizzie has a sister who is only a year younger than her. It is said that she has been trying to get her into DB Entertainment for years, though the company has yet to sign her.
It didn’t take long before fans speculated that the characters Lizzie and Mina are based on Taeyeon and Sooyoung. Similar to Lizzie, Taeyeon has a younger sister named Hayeon. Hayeon used to train under SM Entertainment in 2015. However, Hayeon left the company, and eventually made her debut as a soloist under Enterarts in October 2020.
In addition, fans also compared the character Leah to Jessica’s real-life sister, Krystal. For those who don’t know, the “Crazy Love” actress was scouted by SM Entertainment when she was only five years old. However, due to her age, she had to turn down the offer, and Jessica signed with the label first. She began her training at the age of 12, and debuted with f(x) three years later.
