Yoon Chae Kyung opened up about joining April as a new member. 


Back in October, Hyunjoo left the group, and DSP Media officially announced about a month later that Yoon Chae Kyung and Rachel would be joining as the new members.

In an interview with '@star1', Yoon Chae Kyung responded to questions about joining the group and said, "I'm happy that I've found the group that I can settle with. It feels like I've become an official employee after being an intern. People at the agency also greet me by saying, 'Chae Kyung, you've become an official employee'."


Yoon Chae Kyung also talked about her promotion with CIVA on 'The God of Music Season 2'. She said, "At first, I didn't know much about the program. I really thought I was on a 17-year contract so I got scared but then, later on, I found out that there are scripts and just enjoyed it."

    CHAEKYUNG did debut in PURETTY Group (DSP Agency) in Year 2012, along with members SOMIN (now with KARD Group), and SHIYOON (Acting Roles ?). PRETTY was 'aimed' at JAPAN (so *no* S.KOREA debut) and when nowhere. Which, NOT the 'fault' of the young girls involved (Age 15-16 at the time). Then CHAEKYUNG did the BABY KARA PROJECT TV show, along with SOMIN and SHIYOON. And YOUNGJI got the KARA4 open spot. Then, CHEKYUNG and SHIYOON did the PD101 TV Show; but CHAEKYUNG *barely* missed a spot on the winning IOI Group membership. But also, CHAEKYUNG was chosen for IBI Group, which was formed out those in PD101 TV that had finished 11-22 (SHIYOON was not on IBI Group though). IBI Group was managed by LOEN Agency (IU). As a temporary Group, just like IOI Group is (temporary). So also, CHAEKUNG got the CIVA Group spot with the 'GOD OF MUSIC' (Season 2) TV Show. And CIVA Group was obviously temporary, as are TV Show scripts. So now, CHAEKYUNG has been added to APRIL Group. So, this is actually CHAEKYUNG's *first* debut in a *S.KOREA* 'aimed' normal Group that is supposed to 'keep going' if all goes well enough. So, the only 'fail' in all of this, would be the PURETTY Group. Which, *not* clear to me that it had anything to do with 'lack of talent' of the Group members of PURETTY, as I see it. So, that was probably WAY MORE than anyone wanted to know it! ... :-)

    I was thinking that DSP Agency should let CHAEKYUNG do some 'practice training' as a KARD Group *back up* member. Group members can get sick; something odd happens. Better to have something PLANNED in ADVANCE, than to be *guessing* what to do about it.

    They aren't good at keeping groups together after they have bad comebacks. Aka Rainbow and KARA. But after Sojin they have been good at keeping who they have. Somin stayed after leaving April to debut in KARD. They kept Shiyoon to debut as an actress. They also added Chaekyunng to April. My point is they are really trying to keep who they have in the company.

    @OhMyGuy <-- You make a GOOD point here. Actually, SOMIN, CHAEKYUNG, and SHIYOON did *all* debut in Year 2012 with the DSP Agency Group "PURETTY" ; which was 'aimed' at JAPAN (not S.KOREA). The PURETTY idea just went nowhere. I think because you need to at least establish *some* 'presence' in the S.KOREA K-pop market *before* you try for 'Other Asia' markets like JAPAN or PRChina.
