After School is said to make their Korean comeback this coming June, and it looks like it will be the last promotion for one certain member. After the Graduation of Bekah last year and Soyoung in 2009, looks like After School will undergo another Graduation this coming year.
In an article that was released earlier today Pledis Boss Han Sung Soo said “We’re in the midst of discussing the next member that will graduate”
Han Sung Soo didn’t name a specific member but did say there will be someone graduating. Han Sung Soo said “for Bekah’s case, the company gave her a few months of time to reconsider but she still decided to leave the group and graduate.”
With Orange Caramel’s upcoming debut in Japan; Nana Raina and Lizzy will definitely not be graduating. KaEun who is a new member and is yet to have her official debut in june is also off of the graduating list. Because of this there are 5 members: Kahi Jung-A Juyeon Uie and E-Young, who are up for graduation.
Playgirlz commented: ”so when they announce a new member we should be prepared and expect for a graduation”, “I’m sure Uie will not graduate as she makes a lot of money for pledis but I hope none will graduate”, “Pledis said if the member reconsider she may not graduate.” and “Playgirlz! let’s make their next comeback a hit! let’s make them win! so that it will be a memorable one for the graduating member and perhaps she may reconsider! It’s TIME to show this girls that we care and love them!”
After School is the first idol group to debut with a unique “Admissions” and “Graduation” concept in Korea where members are added or withdrawn in a “Natural” manner.
