Undoubtedly a staged media garnering & marketing ploy. There is no such thing as bad publicity. She will acquire a sympathetic audience for her solo career and GG will get renewed interest for their insipid J-pap. Brilliant tactical move by the management of both teams to arrange a stunt like this. And I'm sure her fashion line will be as successful as Mariko Shinoda's.

She had one of the better voices in the group and definitely of the better sets of legs. Thanks for all the fun and pleasure. AND of course it is all business. Show me one person who puts friendship over money and business and I will show you an intelligent military general.

They could have just replaced her with one of the millions of clones walking the streets of Seoul.
