There’s no better time than now for companies to debut their new singers with all the big hitters either away or taking a break. In the absence of Son Dambi who is filming her Hollywood movie Hype Nation, Pledis Entertainment has unleashed a 5-member girl group After School on the music scene.
Part of After School actually with Son Dambi at the year-end gayo shows last year. There was even talk that Son Dambi would be part of the group but apparently not. The group comprises of Park Ga Hee (leader), Kim Jung Ah, Yoo So Young, Bekha and Lee Joo Yeon. Leader Park Ga Hee is the rapper for Son Dambi’s Bad Boy single. Lee Joo Yeon is a famous internet ulzzang (pretty face) and appeared recently on MBC Introducing Star’s Friend with Son Dambi. Yoo So Young is also famous on the internet for being a Kim Tae Hee lookalike while Bekha hails from Hawaii. Kim Jung Ah had a album release in 2000.
2 of After School’s tracks Play Girlz and Ah were made available for streaming yesterday along with their Ah MV teaser. Sales of their mini-album will be available offline and online from 20th January. Pledis Entertainment expressed, “After School is a group that has been training for 2 years and is modeled after the Pussycat Dolls. They will be a group that Korea has never seen before. They will perform live on 17th January via Music Core and start promotions.”
