Jessica Sooyeon Jung (born April 18, 1989 in San Francisco, California), known professionally as Jessica, is a singer, actress, model, spokesmodel, businesswoman, and former member of the South Korean idol group, Girls' Generation. She is also the older sister of f(x) member Krystal Jung.
Having moved to South Korea when she was 11, Jessica trained for 7 years before being placed in Girls' Generation, and went on to debut in 2007. She has been praised for her talent on stage and exceptional vocals. In 2009, Jessica did a duet with Park Myungsoo titled 냉면 (Cold Noodles), which stayed at #1 for weeks. Alongside band members Seohyun and Tiffany, Jessica has released two singles: "오빠 나빠" ("Bad Oppa") (collaborating with RoomMate) and "마비노기 (It's Fantastic!)". She was forced out of Girls' Generation for unclear reasons in September 2014.
In 2009-2010 she was the lead role of "Legally Blonde: The Musical".
Jessica is the CEO of BLANC & ECLARE, a designer fashion brand. The move to form the company is suspected to be the main reason behind her forced leave from Girls' Generation. The brand's mission is to showcase clear, classic designs that are fashion-forward at the same time.
As of December 2015, it has been confirmed that Jessica is working on her debut solo album.
