A rumor is going around that SNSD will soon form their first subunit featuring Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Jessica.
Rumors of Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Jessica forming Girls’ Generation’s first-ever subunit has been circulating within the K-Pop industry. The rumors were first circulated by one music publishing company and have spread like wildfire across various internet communities. Initially, the company posted, “Our songwriter’s song has been selected for one of the songs in Girls’ Generation’s subunit group’s (Taeyeon, Tiffany, and Jessica) new album, so we’re busy arranging the piece” on its online message board.
The music publishing company is well known for having strong ties with SM Entertainment and has worked with Girls’ Generation, SHINee, DBSK, and Super Junior.
On April 12, a representative of SM Entertainment vaguely stated, “Details have not been finalized yet.”
Quite frankly, I’m surprised they didn’t do this earlier.
For one, it’s a way for SM Entertainment to leech even more money from SNSD’s gigantic fanbase. For two, it’s helpful for the careers of the girls who are put in the subunits, because they have a chance for more exposure and popularity.
If they were aiming for a vocal group, then Seohyun is an obvious exclusion, but the rumored trio has a solid combination of everything, since Seohyun has a tendency to be lacking presence and personality.
