April is welcoming a new member to the team!

Recently, DSP Media announced that Hyunjoo will be permanently leaving the group and a new member will be replacing her. Word was that Yoon Chae Kyung from 'Produce 101' would most likely replace Hyunjoo. Yoon Chae Kyung is also known by fans for having appeared on 'Kara Project', as well as for promoting in I.B.I after 'Produce 101'. 

The rumors were true as on November 11 (KST), DSP Media officially announced, "Yoon Chae Kyung will be joining April as a new member. Currently, an album is in production, and she will be joining the group starting from those next promotions."

ready to flop in April...poor this girl

samzam Friday, November 11, 2016

No I wanted her to debate with youngish and shiyoon it would be good to get a new group going now that rainbow is gone and poor youngji has no members

fairypanda Friday, November 11, 2016

wow I hope she debut with older trainee so that she could do a girl crush concept instead of April's concept... I miss Shiyoon and Youngji :(

Vincent_lx Friday, November 11, 2016

hello? DSP do you remember who Shiyoon is?

LilBmw Friday, November 11, 2016

where the heck is Shiyoon, you can't be doing this DSP... but congrats Chae!

Poor shiyoon.

They should have made the uglier ones into actresses and kept Hyunjoo. How are they going to compete now when they are down one fap material? RIP prospects of sexy Hyunjoo.

Dsp, you keep getting dumber, I swear. I give up on you -_- I will keep supporting my baby Chaekyung, but I never supported April and I won't support them only because Chaekyung is there. How is a twenty years old woman going to fit in their concepts? When they debut, I said that Somin wasn't going to stay there for long and she didn't. Chaekyung also doesn't fit but it isn't like Dsp cares about the fans. They are separating them from Shiyoon and this breaks my heart from knowing their story and how much they battled together to try to be together until the end. No offense to April, because I know they have their own fans. I can understand that, but Dsp had never thought of Chaekyung as good enough for April and the only reason why they are doing this is because Chaekyung is well known now and everyone knows how much Dsp needs to keep April alive because the company is clearly sinking! I understand that they need to survive this, but they can ask Chaekyung's oldest fans (like me!) to understand this, how they add her into a group, where they always thought she didn't belong to. Sorry but Yoon Chaekyung is not second best to us, or even a replacement only because someone jumped out of your girls group. They may have thought that she wasn't good enough to be there since the beginning, but they were wrong. It was April that wasn't good enough for her and Dsp failed to see how talented Chaekyung was since the beginning. Not only that, but they wasted all the talent they had from the girls of Baby Kara.

they ruined Baby KARA and i'm hurting till now. DSP is stupid stupid damn stupid f=king stupid

I tend to agree with you about CHAEKYUNG being somewhat 'wasted' in APRIL Group. But, also, I think that she can do that job (fit in enough). And also, it gives CHAEKYUNG a 'place to land' as a member of a K-pop Group. Which, my *guess* is that DSP AGENCY does NOT want to promote a NEW FEMALE GROUP at this time. Which NEW GROUPS are EXPENSIVE in general. NO IDEA what might happen with SOMIN, SHIYOON, and YOUNGJI from KARA PROJECT TV Show situation. In particular, SOMIN has a LOT of TALENT in my view. MAYBE DSP might create a SHARED GROUP (like IBI Group is/was that) with some other *different* AGENCY Talent. SHARE COSTS of it? Seems NOT likely to me overall though. Seems more like a LOW COST / SAVE MONEY type of decision with CHAEKYUNG added to APRIL Group. Which, there is logic to that; a 'low cost' approach. But rather disappointing to me, in terms of wishing to see a New Female Group with more of a KARA Concept from DSP Agency. I guess when APRIL member JINSOL is Age 18 (four years from now), THEN APRIL Group can 'transition' to more 'mature' Female Group concepts.

I'm hurting until now too! stupid dsp never learns from their mistakes, it's so annoying ugh

chichuu krell Friday, November 11, 2016

I personally don't think that Chaekyung fits in April. She is 20 years old, now stuck in a group where the younger is 14 years ago. April wasn't the group for Somin and I honestly think that Chaekyung is in the same situation. I can understand why dsp can't make a new group because they probably don't have money for that, even if they lost rainbow lately (unfortunately!). but they expect april to do big now, because they need it and personally? I don't think april is going to give them what they had with kara or not even close. april has fans yes, but they are not moving along the current kpop's wave. they don't have their own colors yet and it's not like they stand up when compared to groups that debuted in the same year as them. unlike kara, there is nothing special about them. this is obviously only my opinion, no offense to whoever is their fan. I don't think chaekyung is going to bring much into april and I think they are wasting her talent to be honest. but what annoys me the most is them adding her into a group where they believed she didn't have a place there. as a fan of her for a long time, this actually hurts me because she is soooo much better than a replacement. I also can't wait to see what they plan to do with somin, even if to be honest lol I think they will waste her talent too because that's what dsp always does

krell chichuu Friday, November 11, 2016

I hear you; no real argument here. Again, CHAEKYUNG has a SPOT now in APRIL Group. Which, otherwise, you are what, TRAINING in the GARAGE? WONDER what happens to SOMIN as this point too?

chichuu krell Friday, November 11, 2016

somin has been seen in dsp's dungeons, practicing.. I have no idea for what exactly, but I really hope they are not planning to waste her talent like they basically do with everyone under their company
