As fans try to piece together the events that led to Jessica being fired from Girls Generation, it is inevitable that we must speculate on ulterior motives, especially since the Girls themselves do not seem as eager to discuss their rationale as quickly as they were to eradicate a member.
Well, front and center on speculation is Sunny. In a vote against Jessica, on which side was she? It’s no accident that she was chosen to sing Jessica’s part of Mr. Mr. during a recent visit to Japan. It’s possible she typically stands in for Jessica during rehearsals, so we have to wonder what was in her mind when asked to put Jessica to a vote.
Even though we can more than infer a growing criticism against Jessica for her outside projects, in reality, each one of them wants more: more acting, more solos, more product labels for their smiling faces. And it can rightfully be conjectured that without Jessica, Sunny gets more lead vocal time. So even if she had no reason to oust Jessica, it’s safe to say she was on the negative side of the voting table.
