After School's Kaeun allegedly joining new girl group



After School's Kaeun is rumored to be joining another girl group.

Former After School member Lizzy (Park Soo Ah) sat down for an interview with Joy News 24 on October 18, and she revealed updates on how the former and current members of Pledis Entertainment girl group After School have been doing. Lizzy revealed, "Nana unni and Jooyeon unni have been doing well in acting, and Raina is doing well with her solo career. Kaeun, who appeared on 'Produce 48' is preparing to debut with another girl group, E-Young is promoting with a band, and Jung Ah unni is living well after getting married. I'm proud that everyone's living their own lives well."

Though Lizzy's interview has sparked speculation on Kaeun joining another girl group besides After School, it's yet to be seen whether she'll be joining a Pledis Entertainment produced group or a 'Produce 48' girl group with other members who didn't make the final lineup of IZ*ONE.

Stay tuned for updates.

Not sure if it was all Pledis fault, the latest After School comebacks didn't do well, not much of a point for them to keep promoting with messed line up if people paid no attention to them... Kpop market is like this, if people cared about talented people some groups I won't mention here wouldn't be the top groups today.

Not really sure that's accurate. Both "Flashback" and "First Love" charted Top 20, with "First Love" actually making it to the top 10.

It's become more of an internet meme to point to After School flopping in the end rather than Pledis' mismanagement of letting the group languish since 2013.

Uh.. First Love and Flashback did very well. The reason for After School's loss of popularity is because of how Pledis managed them and their other groups. The throw one group into the limelight and forget the others for long periods of time (Over 4 years for AS). THAT'S why people lost interest, because they weren't given any comebacks.

I've been a kpop fan for 13 years, I understand the ins and outs of the kpop scene. So don't school me like I'm new.

Ok guys, I mean not well as their older releases, and First Love AND Flashback were their worst selling comebacks... May be better than some other sorta rookie groups at the time, because of AS's name, but that's it. Not trying to school you, I'm just stating some facts, chill out ^^

A new gril group? By Pledis? If Pledis can't promote After School or Pristin, how are they going to promote a new girl group? Maybe the debut them and then to the dungeon...

Simply their last comebacks didn't do well and when that happens they stop promoting as a group and having comebacks because the members are tied to the prestige of the groups name and continuing to have comebacks that fail diminish that name recognition.

The fame that the group once had still matters and can be cashed in for work in different feilds but that only has value if they stop when they are on a relative high otherwise you end up with a group like Rainia and you just run it into the ground.

Pledis was almost bankrupt so they couldn't provide for most of their artists. Nu'est didn't even have a manager and they had to ride buses and taxis to their own events. I think that is why After School went under they just didn't have the money to do a lot of things. At least for Nu'est they had fans in Japan and they just stayed there.

Uh, let's just say that we don't know quite yet if KaEun will definitely be in a new girl group or just remain a long-time member with After School at this very moment. And with that being said, we shall wait very patiently and find out what KaEun will do next from here on out.

Yessss I am down for your username!!!!


But I can forgive them for not being close to these two as Soyoung left before most members joined (2 comebacks I think? So after Uee joined she left), while Bekah moved abroad so that is always harder to stay in touch. I mean I can forgive them either way its none of my business who is close to whom but at least this makes sense a lot if they arent close to them

I think if she joins a group.. it'll just be a project group... but that's actually a good thing.. it's what she always wanted and the reason she joined PD48
