Jessica, formerly a member of girl group Girl's Generation, has been recently offered a position in a Korean beauty show, according to local media outlets.

Insiders in the entertainment industry revealed that Jessica may be the host for KBS' "Beauty Bible," set to air in March. Reportedly, Jessica was chosen because she is currently working as a CEO of a fashion brand.

KBS N later announced: "It is true that we are in the process of creating a beauty programme. However, the final cast has not yet been confirmed."

If Jessica does become the host, it will be her first time back on TV screens in about a year and a half, since her exit from Girl's Generation.

Jessica withdrew from the group in 2014 with SM's official statement saying, "Jessica will no longer be a member of SNSD as she has plans aside from her K-pop career."

The ex-SNSD celebrity launched her own fashion business Blanc & Eclare in August with the help of film producer Tyler Kwon.
