It seems to me that Pledis are dispensing with all their female idols and just concentrating on their big money makers in Seventeen and NU'est, which for all intents and purposes is what they've been doing for quite some time now. It's a shame to see how they treated the fans and members of groups like After School (sub Orange Caramel) and Pristin. But I guess it is just a business for them, nothing more. It's a sad reality.

What the heck is happening with After School. Pledis is a terrible management for everyone, they treat badly their artists, and since Raina left Pledis it is impossible to promote After School once again. After School might been disbanded.
