It’s pretty surprising, but After School’s Bekah was once a model for the major fashion brand ROXY!
After School‘s new member debuted through their stage at the 2010 MBC Gayo Festival. However, fans only saw a glimpse of her face, as she was rocking on a guitar and her hair was covering half her face.
After School will be returning as a nine-member group this March!
Back in July, Pledis Entertainment announced that they were searching for After School’s ninth member. After an overwhelming response of applicants, the agency has finally narrowed it down to new member who will be revealed on MBC Gayo Daejun 2010.

Fans know that Jung Ah is After School’s ultimate mommy. And as you can see below in a pic posted on Twitter, the After School girls act like little babies getting fed by mommy Jung Ah ^^
As usual, SBS Gayo Daejun is amazing~ (yes I’m biased.)
The youngest members of various idol groups will be coming together for a special ‘maknae show performance’ on SBS’s “2010 Gayo Daejun.”
After School‘s subunit, Happy Pledis, has been known to be releasing a new single called “Love, Love, Love” as a charity fundraiser this Christmas. Since they will be releasing their teaser MV on December 7th, the girls came out with their photo concept first.
Christmas is not here but you can tell that After School is ready!
On December 1st, After School sub-unit Orange Caramel hosted the radio show “Bang Bang School“. During the show, they played a ten-second snippet of the song “Love Love Love” from “Happy Pledis The First Album”. The album will go on sale on December 7, as part of an event called “Happy Pledis”. The event is meant to return the support that Pledis Entertainment’s artists have received from their fans.
On Wednesday, the album cover image was unveiled, featuring all members of After School except Bekah. A representative from Pledis stated that she is currently on vacation. “Bekah will be taking time off from the group’s activities for two to three months, staying at her home in Hawaii since she hasn’t been back for three to four years from pursuing her singing career.” [Soompi]
A teaser picture was posted on After School’s website, featuring the 7 of the girls (Bekah is missing). With the name Happy Pledis on the top, it announces “Love Love Love” as their first single to be released on December 7th.
Since it says “first single”, it might be another After School sub group unit. Pledis Entertainment has not yet announced further information on the group’s comeback.
As for me, I don’t see the point of Pledis making another sub group out of ALL members EXCEPT Bekah…what does that even say to her fans out there? That they’re “Happy Pledis” without her?? 😦
In the November 2010 issue of Sparkling Magazine, a new line of Kpop magazine published in the Philippines, fans were given a quiz asking who would their ideal Kpop idol be? I must say that this was really aimed for fan girls…but you boys can also try it out 🙂
REMEMBER TO SHARE YOUR RESULTS BELOW TOO!
The rest of the scans are also undercut featuring artists such as 2AM, 2PM, After School, BEAST, 4Minute, Brown Eyed Girls, 2NE1, Big Bang, and BoA!
FANBOYS DO EXIST!! lol well of course we all know this because of SNSD, KARA, etc. but who knew a 3-member After School subgroup like Orange Caramel has many guys behind their backs too? Watch their comeback performance on November 20th episode of Music Core & see for yourself 😉
LMAO…all those low voices yelling are just too hilarious XD
Is anyone actually attending this year’s MAMAs 2010?
The Mnet Asian Music Awards began to run into trouble this year starting with their controversial move from Korea to Macau.
Korean broadcast companies such as SBS, KBS and MBC argued the move saying that artists would have to choose between the MAMAs or their Korean end of the year show because of the timing.
DSP Entertainment says that KARA’s busy schedule is keeping the group from attending both the 2010 MAMAs as well as the 2010 Melon Music Awards.
All of the other artists have also cited busy schedules as their reason for pulling out.
Here’s the full list of artists who will not be attending:
As many of you may already know, C.N BLUE’s Minhyuk was featured in Orange Caramel’s new MV for their single album “Aing~” When asked which of the three ladies he wanted, the maknae drummer just can’t seem to decide…
Q: You Were in Orange Caramel’s MV, Are you planning to Act?
After School’s maknaes Nana and Lizzy were spotted at a bookstore,despite their busy schedule,these girls spared some of their time looking for some books.
On their recent appearance on a radio show to promote their latest single “Bang!”, members Raina and new admitted member Lizzy sing a small snippet of trot songs to show off their talents. Plus, Kahi, Jung Ah and Jooyeon are able to play the drums…without physical drums being present? Check it out after the cut!
It seems like the new generation of After School members are all talented at singing trot! Back in November of 2009 when Raina and Nana were admitted into After School, Nana sang a snippet of a trot song to show off her talent. Well, looks like new admitted member Lizzy will be following in her footsteps! Equipped with a cute voice, newest maknae Lizzy sings a short cover of a trot song. Afterwards, main vocalist Raina also sings a short cover of another trot song and begins to laugh towards the end.
Forbes Korea has released their yearly survey. This time they ranked the most hardworking idols from 2009-2010. After releasing his solo album and concerts and at the same time promoting with his group – Big Bang’s leader G-Dragon tops this year’s chart as the Most Hardworking Idol. Big Bang’s Daesung was also included in the ranking at #13 for his appearances on variety shows.
1. G-Dragon (Big Bang)
2. U-Know (TVXQ)
3. Taeyeon (SNSD)
4. Nickhun (2PM)
5. Taecyeon (2PM)
It’s been almost a month since After School released theirBang! single and it’s a real shame that we haven’t seen them perform that often on television due to unfortunate events that were out of their control.
Despite not performing that often, their dance cheoreography has gained much attention and Pledis has released a Bang! dance lesson video for fans to pick up the dance. The original members Kahi, Jungah, Jooyeon and Bekah are in the majority of this video as they take you through the main points of the dance, with the younger members Raina, Nana and Lizzy appearing towards the end.

After School’s Raina updated her Cyworld on April 20th with a couple of pictures of herself bright early in the morning…without any makeup 🙂
We reported earlier about the tentative lineup for the upcoming Dream Concert 2010 and the finalized list has been announced recently.
Dream Concert is undoubtedly an event of epic proportions for kpop fans – with nearly twenty of Korea’s hottest artists performing on one stage in front of an audience that’s 40,000 members strong. For 2010, Dream Concert has been scheduled to take place at the Seoul World Cup Stadium next month on May 22nd, and will be taped for future broadcast by SBS.
20 performing artists have been confirmed on GMarket’s website and they are:
It’s a daunting period to be making your debut now especially with so many big name singers making their comeback, but you just got to take the opportunity when it comes.
Rookie solo singer, Jerry (real name: Dae Sung Ho aged 22) who is reportedly a descendant of the great Dae Jo Young who founded the Balhae Dynasty will be making his debut starting this week with his single called, Love and has Ha Joo Yeon of Jewelry rapping for him.
His teaser video was released on the 14th together with a stream of congratulatory message from his seniors like KARA, T-ara, After School, CNBlue, 2AM, BEASTand Supreme Team. They all wished him well on his debut and hope to see him on stage soon. Actress Choi Ara also stars in his music video.

And the full music video was released on the 15th.

On Jooyeon’s minihompy, she uploaded pictures on to her diary dedicated to her fans. Though After School is either charismatic or sexy on stage, the selcas were more adorable and hilarious.
The pink tiger was quite unique. It was nice to see the members hang out with each other and these pictures show how down to earth they are.
“The one where she’s wearing the stuffed animal on her head is so cute.”
“It’s nice to see After School offstage.”
“I laughed at this. It’s making me happy!”
They are quite cute, right?
