"Fashion designer," "singer," Jessica Jung adds "actress" to her long list of achievement and aspirations.

Jung, who departed SM Entertainment's Girls' Generations in 2014, spoke about her upcoming plans to Women Sense magazine. In the interview, Jung discussed her fashion line, her plans to record, and mentioned that she is aiming to try her hand at acting.

"I am reviewing scenarios of films and dramas, mostly spending time in the recording studio or design room," Jung told the magazine, confirming rumors that she would be pursuing a career as a solo singer and adding that she is pursuing acting jobs.

Despite several members of Girls' Generation being popular actresses, Jung's only role in Korean dramas was a supporting role in the 2012 drama, Wild Romance. She also had several cameo roles, and had her own variety show with her sister, f(x)'s Krystal.

Along with plans to act, Jung expressed excitement about releasing her own music.

"Stage? I am rather excited about going back onstage because there will be many opportunities."

The singer shared a picture of herself in a recording studio on February 24, sparking rumors of a Japanese solo debut.

After launching her company BLANC & ECLARE, formerly known simply as Blanc, Jung was asked to leave Girls' Generation due to potential conflicts of interest that would lead to difficulties for the idol group.

During the interview, Jung clarified that she's been traveling a lot for work.

"I am traveling while preparing for a new collection for BLANC & ECLARE," she said. "The trip is not for fun. I am leading a hectic life with frequent meetings and business trips."

Jung shared a picture with her sister Krystal in New York during February 2015 New York Fashion Week, then on on February 27, Jessica shared teaser images of her new BLANC & ECLARE line. Shortly after, she appeared in an Yves Saint Laurent lip-gloss commercial.
