After the shock of 3 members leaving from Girls' Generation (Tiffany, Seohyun and Sooyoung), fans are becoming even more bothered after some news regarding the salaries and more were revealed by an employee of SM.

However, fans began jumping to conclusions assuming the news was regarding the members' salaries. According to reports, Girls' Generation's stylist Seo Soo Kyoung who has been working alongside them for over 6 years (since 2011) had shared information regarding her salary but also shared the reasons for the members leaving and more. The reports have sent netizens into a buzz and the news has circulated quite fast since it has come from a reliable source. 

"Well, I don't think's it's such a big deal because I don't think Girls' Generation will disband", and continued, "People keep asking my opinion about the issue as if it's a big problem. If they are to disband, I would be heartbroken too, as I'm also a huge fan of the group. But the thing is, members are not taking the matter seriously, and I personally think Girls' Generation won't disband."  Good to know!

Although Seo Soo Kyoung relieved our minds with the news of the near future regarding the group, she did shock fans with the topic of payments by saying, "Did you know that SM gives the lowest salary for their artists and employees in the industry? They have this kind of mindset, 'You should thank us for being able to work with a superstar group like Girls' Generation'." 

What do you think of the mind-shattering news about SM's idea of paying their staff and Girls' Generation's current status?
