Fans find it astonishing that Red Velvet members are wearing the brand founded and owned by Jung, who left Girls' Generation in 2014 and broke ties with SM Entertainment in 2015 to pursue her personal business. She signed with Coridel Entertainment in March 2016. 
 
"SM celebrities wearing Jung's brand is an unexpected gesture," commented one fan.
