It seems like after their long exile, the eight members of Girls’ Generation aka SNSD (소녀시대) are finally making an official comeback and fans cannot contain themselves. Being one of the biggest second-generation groups of K-pop and the only female group to dominate the industry since their debut, it is highly likely that SNSD had been the saving grace of many K-pop fans in the late 2000s and early 2010s.

The girl group made its debut as nine members back in 2007 but member Jessica Jung eventually departed from the label SM Entertainment as well as the girl group in 2014. Everything was running smoothly until 2017 when Girls’ Generation members celebrated their 10th Anniversary with ‘Holiday Night’ and went on an indefinite hiatus after. But, after five years of being on hiatus and one variety show reunion alongside several Instagram OT8 posts, Girls Generation is finally getting back for a new comeback to celebrate their 15th Anniversary since its debut.

SNSD to make a comeback to celebrate their 15th Anniversary

A lot had changed after 2017 for the group with members Tiffany, Sooyoung, and Seohyun leaving SM Entertainment to follow their solo journeys as actors and solo artists. Despite leaving the label, the girls promised to be a part of Girls’ Generation and the five members that remained with the label, namely, Taeyeon, Sunny, Hyoyeon, Yuri, and Yoona all engaged in solo activities to continue their journeys as artists. Not only that but these five members also were active as an SNSD subunit, Oh!GG.

On May 17, Korean media outlets reported that Girls’ Generation was going to finally end its hiatus and make a comeback after five years. The girls will be making a comeback in August of 2022, exactly 15 years after their debut, and release a special 15th-anniversary album that had been teased for years and years at end. It has also been reported that alongside their full-group comeback this year, the girls will also appear on various TV shows as well as have solo reality programs to promote their comeback.

Will SNSD diss Jessica’s novel in their comeback album?

Despite such positive news, some fans of the girl group wonder if former member Jessica Jung will be called out for her references to the girl group in her recently released novel ‘Bright’. Jessica, who was “kicked out” of the girl group in 2014 due to scheduling conflicts that clashed with her solo commitments released two novels titled ‘Shine’ and ‘Bright’ in 2020 and 2022 respectively that tell the story of a girl named Rachel who wanted to make it big in the K-pop industry but was removed from a fictional girl group, ‘Girls Forever’.

The references in the book were very similar to the reality of what happened with the girl group and Jessica over the years which had OT8 fans of the group calling her out for manipulating the truth and presenting her side of the story without giving SNSD members a chance to defend themselves. Now after Girls’ Generation confirmed a comeback, fans wonder if the members will address the allegations Jessica made in her book. One fan said, "Snsd announcing comeback after jessica released that messy book….lsm is really threatened by sica omfg." One more fan said, "So SNSD had the whole Jessica revelation and decided to have a comeback right after."

One more fan said, "SNSD announcing OT8 comeback after Jessica releasing her wattpad novel is the pettiness level I aspire to be." Another fan said, "Jessica’s book was actually promo for the snsd comeback." Another fan said, "Thanks to jessica and her books we got snsd comeback news." One fan hoped, "I hope Jessica Jung’s tea on her new book would trigger a comeback diss track for SNSD. I really don’t care I’m desperate for a new Girls’ Generation content." Another fan joked, "Jessica sees SNSD's 8 member comeback for 15th anniversary." One more fan joked, "And all it took for snsd ot8 comeback to happen was a release of jessica’s new book."
