    “Bae Yoon Jung asked Lee Ga Eun if After School has no plans to promote in the future, which made Kahi laugh and say to her, “Why are you asking her?” Cheetah added, “You should ask the CEO.” Bae Yoon Jung clarified that she wanted to know if she’d heard anything, and then asked if they’d disbanded.

    “No, we haven’t disbanded,” replied Lee Ga Eun. “But since they told me that I could come on the show, I’m wondering if it might be like that.”

  • blushruby

    kaeun is leaving after school to debut in a new band

  • eka-falla

    I wonder if that will become true… for now it’s just a rumor and hasn’t been confirmed by Pledis

  • Lily Perez

    No one said she was leaving, Lizzy just said she’s preparing to debut in a girl group

  • Arnest Lim

    UEE’s instagram acc has been deleted.

  • Nana_Golub

    excuse me for a question. how do i understand they “graduated” from group? it’s measured by their age or something?

  • Lily Perez

    It’s practically just a member leaving the group but with a fancy name

  • Arnest Lim

    Nana is ranked 6th on TC Candler’s “The 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018”.

  • A.R.M.YnBlink

    Nana was ranked 1st, twice in a row (2014 & 2015) on TC Candler’s annual list of ‘The 100 most beautiful faces’

    🙂

  • Di Ei

    Jooyeon is the Visual of After School too! At least before UEE joined AS, Jooyeon is the Main Visual. She is one of the Korea’s 1st Ulzzang Generation so her real position is: Vocalist, Visual.

  • Ahmad Adryan

    JooYeon isn’t a Vocalist
    JooYeon is original Lead Vocalist (with KaHi)

  • felipe grin§

    UEE is a Lead Rapper not Rapper
    JooYeon is original Main Visual

  • Arixa

    She only said that she doesn’t know what’s going on with the group, and with the company allowing her to go on PD48 she doesn’t know if that was a good sign or a bad sign. She never said anything about leaving AS.
