How Did Jessica Jung Accumulate Her Net Worth?
Although she is no longer a member of Girls' Generation, a good portion of her net worth came from her time as a member of the then-nine-member group, such as the revenues Girls' Generation generated through their music releases, appearances on TV shows, endorsement deals, and many more.
Upon the SM Entertainment group's debut into the industry, Girls' Generation became a nationwide success with their hit song releases, such as "Gee," "Genie," "Into the New World," "Run Devil Run," "Oh!," among many others.
Girls' Generation also became an international success, further propelling the Hallyu Wave and receiving the title as the "Nation's Girl Group." With their national status in South Korea, the group became highly-sought after with their appearance fees relatively high, which translates to how much each member earned.
Following Jessica Jung's departure from the group, she continued on with her solo career, which also saw immense success. In August 2014, Jessica Jung launched her own fashion label, Blanc & Eclare, which grew to become a luxury brand that produces clothing, skincare, accessories, and such.
