Earlier today, a video of Girls’ Generation at the 12th Annual Korea-China Song Festival created controversy. A fancam from the festival caught the attention of SONES as it contained footage of what seemed like a man touching Jessica inappropriately.
Jessica was seen quickly turning to Hyoyeon and whispering something into her ear, which caused Hyoyeon to sharply look in the direction of a man and open her mouth in shock and disgust. Jessica then went to Sooyoung who also turned and looked in the general direction to where Jessica was standing previously. Soon after, the man began to move away from the scene, and walk off.
However, due to the low quality of the video and the fact that it was impossible to see what was happening behind the members, no one was able to confirm the validity of the rumours. SM Entertainment confirmed that the rumours were false stating, “The rumours of sexual harassment towards member Jessica are simply not true. If an inappropriate incident took place, we would have taken immediate action. We do not want a misunderstanding.”
