According to MBC on April 4, Jessica’s label Coridel Entertainment released a statement saying, “Although it is true that Jessica is on a Chinese audition program, we are verifying if the rumors about her being labeled as a Chinese-Korean by producers.”
The label continued, “Because she has left Girls Generation, she doesn’t use the group’s name when she promotes.”
