K-pop star Jessica Jung, 25, is devastated at being ousted from the highly popular girl group Girls' Generation for what she calls "no justifiable reason".

The Korean-American singer made the shocking revelation in a post on her account on China-based microblogging site Weibo in the wee hours of yesterday morning.

It sparked speculations over the authenticity of the post until Girls' Generation's management agency SM Entertainment confirmed that Jung was leaving the group due to disagreements over her involvement in her fashion business.

It stated that Jung and the rest of the eight members will continue to be managed by SM Entertainment.

Jung, one of the group's lead vocalists, started her own fashion label Blanc last month. She is not the only K-pop star to do so. Vocalist Lee Hong Ki of FTIsland, managed by FNC Entertainment, has launched the official website for his fashion brand Skull Hong.

This may be why news is abuzz that it may be more than her fashion aspirations that led to her departure from the group.

Korean news outlet Dispatch has released photos of Jung and rumoured beau Tyler Kwon, former boyfriend of Hong Kong singer- actress Gillian Chung, arriving one after the other at the Incheon airport on Monday morning.

Calling them an "unofficial official couple", Dispatch said Jung was flying in from New York where she went hunting for fashion schools. Kwon is allegedly the largest shareholder in Blanc.

Jung seemed to have been caught unawares by her dismissal, going by her Weibo post: "I was excited about our upcoming fan events only to shockingly be informed by my company and 8 others that as of today, I'm no longer a member."

There were sightings of eight of the original nine members at Incheon airport yesterday where they were headed to China for their fan meet.

Fans' comments on Jung's Weibo account ranged from disbelief to anger towards her management.

One netizen on Weibo posted in Chinese: "Girls' Generation is not complete without all nine members, Jessica we will await your return."
