Part 2: Group Info!

After School has gone through a few iterations gaining and losing members (that I will discuss in the member section).

The group in its initial form debuted in 2009 under Pledis Entertainment.

There are three sub groups of After School: Orange Caramel which I will be discussing later today, and After School Red & Blue which were made through fan votes to promote different tracks for their fourth comeback.  Red and Blue have not been active since that time.

A number of members made forays in acting including: Uee, Jooyeon, Lizzy, and former members Kahi and Soyoung.

They have done a number of reality shows including MTV Diary, Playgirlz School, After School’s Beauty Bible, After School’s Beauty Bible 2014.
