Girls’ Generation has revealed an eight-member promotional poster for their Beijing fan meet, 2014 Girls’ Generation 1st Fan Party Mr.Mr. in Beijing.
The group’s fan meet tour around China has taken them through places like Shenzhen and Chongqing and will bring them to Nanjing and Beijing later this month. The promotional poster for the Beijing stop has created much buzz online as the image shows the eight members of the group, a contrast to previous nine-member photos.
This image shows a set of nine boxes. Yoona, Tiffany, Taeyeon, Sunny, Seohyun, Yuri, Hyoyeon, and Sooyoung surround the center box detailing the event’s logistics.
Event organizers have expressed they hope the fan meet can be an opportunity for fans to have close interactions with the group through activities such as taking selcas together. In addition to these games, the members will also bring impressive performances to the stage, making the event one for fans to remember.
Netizens have reacted in various ways, ranging from acceptance such as “I support an eight-member Girls’ Generation” to sadness with “It’s so empty without Jessica.”
Tickets for the Beijing fan meet went on sale on November 13th at 2PM and prices range from 280 RMB to 980 RMB. The event will be held at the MasterCard Center on November 29th at 7:30PM.
The group’s meeting with Chinese fans back in September 30th was rather emotional as members shed tears on stage following news of Jessica’s removal from the group. Jessica is currently carrying out her individual activities as a designer for her own brand Blanc & Eclaire.
