The idol reached out to fans personally.
Girls’ Generaton‘s Sunnywho is also SM Entertainment founder Lee Soo Man‘s niece, is going viral after writing about her thoughts on the label’s current situation.
On March 15, a post titled “Girls’ Generation’s Sunny Has Already Explained Without Explaining” went viral. In the post, the author uploads several private messages sent by the Girls’ Generation member to fans.
In her messages, Sunny writes to fans her thoughts on the current situation surrounding SM Entertainment. SM Entertainment was recently in the center of a tug-of-war between Cocoa and MOVES. Sunny’s message is sweet and full of concern for her fans as she tries to reassure them that no matter what happens at SM Entertainment, her relationship with her fans wouldn’t change.
How have you guys been? These days every day is so hectic due to so much noise from the news, huh?! There are a lot of things that I am learning from the news myself, so there isn’t anything I can tell you (about SM Entertainment). But I don’t think it will affect our relationship that much..?!
LOL, um, nothing in this world is forever… But if our hearts and our thoughts for one another align, we will be able to be with each other for a long time, so don’t worry too much and don’t be shaken (by the news), and let’s keep getting along as we have been until now!!
Sunny even tries to reassure fans by lightly joking about the whole situation. In a message, the idol states that it would have been great if she could help her fans make money off SM Entertainment’s stock but that she didn’t have any stocks of the company herself.
Don’t concern yourself too much. Just think ‘Whatever happens will happen’ and put on your AirPods or Buds and turn on the noise blocker and skip through everything, LOL. I can’t tell you anything since I don’t know anything myself… I want to help you guys make money from our stocks… but I don’t even have SM stocks. How can I help you if I don’t know myself…
LOL, yeah, I’m glad I can at least make you laugh like this! And just a note, but I am doing my best to abide by the law and social customs so I can be a daughter, colleague, friend, and most importantly, ‘A singer I liked in the past’ you can be proud of.
Netizens praised Sunny for her thoughtful and sweet messages, with many stating that this is an example of why Girls’ Generation is so beloved and revered by fans and people in the industry.
