Not if we get a new sub unit group with Kaeun and E-young.

I'm not interested in seeing Kaeun in a subunit. I would love to see E-young in a subunit playing instruments but not at the expense of a member graduating. I think you've been a fan for as long as I have. Surely you've noticed how these graduations have negatively affected this fandom and After School's popularity. To increase After School's popularity we need stability in the member line up but it's up to the members whether they want to graduate or not so all I can do is hope that no one graduates for a long time.

@PrinceX, btw you're pretty good with the gifs/pictures. What are you going to do now reply with a gif of After School performing the "Ah-ha,  ah-ha,  ah-ha!" part of Bang. LOL, that would be cool to see Very Happy

There's multiple cases where UEE has shown how proud she is to be part of After School and because of that I'm proud to have her in After School regardless of how little she contributes vocally or performance wise to the group. wrote:
It's true that Uee doesn't contribute vocally but performance wise she is one of the best. At least for me. She is one of the best dancers in the group (She  has worked hard on her facial expressions) and she has a strong stage presence. If you think about it E-Young and Lizzy might be better when it comes to vocals but they definitely lacks stage presence at times.

Speaking of performances I have to admit that I am so proud of our makne, she is sounds really good live, she is the best after Raina and Jongah in my opinion. And her dancing skills are also pretty good. Overall I am loving her addition to the group, she fits so well, I can't stop praising her, she is really cute as the little one but when on stage she is like everyone else, although she has much less experience compared to the rest of the girls.

In an interview with Ilgan Sports on April 1, UEE hinted that she may be graduating from After School fairly soon in order to focus on her acting.

She said, "I don't think there's much time left before I graduate from After School. In the past, my ambition to stand on stage rather than to act was strong, but these days, my ambition for acting has grown. Whenever I think that, I feel that my graduation day is nearing. I'm not saying I need to graduate right away, but I do feel like I need to pass on my position to my dongsaengs."

UEE revealed her plans after graduation: "After graduation, I want to focus on acting. That's why I find every performance at events precious now. It's more poignant now that I think there isn't much time left for me on stage."

Uee is pretty much next in my book.

Her acting career has really been doing great things for her and even before the interviews with her saying acting has been a big staple in her career lately, I realized that she has been so busy with her acting career that it has prevented her from even promoting in Japan with the other girls and there have been many times when in Korea shes missed out on performances and what not.

As much as I love this line up and prefer it to remain as this 8 for awhile longer, I know that the time for Uee to graduate is very near, its only a matter of time. Possibly not for the next comeback (which would be spring or summer) but perhaps the following comeback will be the announcement of her graduation. I will be sad but I can understand why. And like it was with Bekah and Kahi, I will learn to move on from it cause thats what this group is about in the first place.

I really dont like fans who dwell so much on Kahi and Bekah, please move on, they have.

I disagree, After School is about many things, the graduation concept is not one of them. The graduation concept is really just an incentive for being an After School member.

You really don't like me ? Sad ....that's OK  Very Happy I like everyone unless they've done something to really offend me. Not liking me does not offend me so you may not like me but I still like you  Very Happy Also, I like everyone in this forum so far. You'll see that I have a lot of disagreements in this forum with other members but it doesn't mean I don't like them, friends can also disagree and argue, they may not like me but I still like them. As for "please move on, they have.", this is not true as there are at least 2 instances where Kahi has shown she still wants to be part of After School also Kahi, Bekah and Jung Ah were the original defining members of After School and now only one of them is left and After School is far from the After School that I favour so excuse me while I continue to dwell as much as I like on Kahi and Bekah. Btw, if I've ever sounded annoyed/angry in this post, you've mistaken, so far I've only been sad and happy Very Happy 

Oh, oh I got a great idea, graduate UEE already and re-admit Kahi. Haha, I've gotten over UEE's graduation before it even happened  lol!

PlayboyzAdam: Dont get me wrong I still miss Kahi and Bekah but for me, I cope more with acceptance of the fact that they have graduated. But I am going to admit, that when they announced it, I was very upset about it and I even teared up with it as well. But for me, I feel that dwelling on the fact that they are no longer in the group is a waste of time cause they are not going to come back into the group.

Also, please dont misunderstand me when I said that the graduation system is what makes them in the first place (I guess I worded that wrong lol) I know that AS has many unique traits to them that makes them different from other girl groups. I understand we all have our share of different opinions so I took no offense to anything you said, we PlayGirlz/PlayBoyz are too cool to fight with each other, I have to say we are the best fandom!

i hope nothing changes in the coming 2014 lineup.
it is getting to work like others had said.
even when uee mentions she doesnt have much time left in as i doubt she would graduate before 2014 comeback.

i have to agree she did contribute a lot to AS. apart from vocals. just like visuals in other girl groups.
she dances alright and i see less of her wide eyed expressions now, though she still gets out of breath easily... but her missing a lot of promotions is worrying.

AS doesnt need a new member right now in my opinion. they should really train the current members more to strengthen their vocals.

as for english and rap, lizzy and kaeun are alright. nana and uee are fine with their korean raps too.

The poll is about who you think will graduate next not who you want to graduate next so I've got no problems with it. I agree that Jung Ah probably got the most votes because she's the oldest. UEE seems more likely to be the one that is graduating next given the interviews she has done hinting about her graduation.

Did anyone ever notice this before? Jungah is listed as a solo act on Mwave along with Kahi. We all know Kahi is but I wonder why they isolated Jungah too

Cool, I never knew that. Maybe Pledis has solo promotion ideas for Jung Ah or maybe MWave just got it wrong. Did you know that Raina is also listed as a solo act as well?

That would be great.

The truth is, that in some older AS songs for dramas and such, the vocals were done only by Omma and Kahi most of the times. Like the Lights and Shadows song.

I think it's fair if she's having a solo project, now Raina's had one collaboration that's given her more solo-spotlight (since she's the one with more solos because of AS/OC releases).

Or maybe it's only they plan to promote her on TV shows or maybe even musicals, just like Kahi's done B&C or when Raina went to Immortal Song 2?

I just wish for her to stay a couple of years more with the group, not rush to graduate without a wider fanbase to become a soloist.

Well I'm really late posting here lol but I knew Uee was going to leave. On their fb page it said After School AND Uee on a post before she ever announced it so I was freaking out about that and searching to see if there were any rumors of her leaving out and could find none. At the forum I go to there's a whole page of me freaking out about it when I saw that post lol. Plus, if AS stickes to their concept of leaving for a reason it leaves Uee and Nana to go next. Nana seems happy with her spot but Uee is always filming dramas. She's almost a separate entity as it is.

Well it seems things have changed recently with the divorce of pledis and Fantagio with both going their separate ways and taking their respective kids with them; As a fan also of Hello Venus this was simply tragic to hear but it opens up possibilities for AS with two potential additions in Ara and Yoonjo who now have valuable stage experience and are former AS trainees.

The Fantagio/Pledis split was a mess. For once, I can't side with the agencies, it feels terrible they didn't get to any agreement to keep them 6 together. I bet it was bad for them all to get separated, as a group that hadn't get a music promotion for a year, they looked really close with one another.

I feel terrible for them all. So I am not that sure about Ara and Yoonjo getting inside AS.

So has anyone heard the rumor: Jooyeon and Uee might be graduating.

Here is the link: http://www.koreaboo.com/sns/speculation-arises-after-school-graduation/

What do you PlayGirlz & PlayBoyz think about it?

Uee, I'm not surprised about it if she said she was graduating from AS (she kind of hinted it already publicly). As for Jooyeon, kind of took me by surprised. Surprised, because I was hoping they would still be together as 8 for a couple of years to release an album together before graduating or adding a new member.

But I did see the pictures from Jooyeon's instagram and I did have my speculations that Jooyeon and Uee were probably graduating from AS (Jooyeon hinting it - saying why the two girls were crying). Also, Jungah and Raina looked especially sad in the picture of the two girls crying. I'll admit, I'd be if sad any of the girls leave right now, but I'll probably won't take it as bad as when Bekah & Kahi left (they were my bias - still is). I'll still support them. But still...the AS girls as 8 have really good rapport right now and I would like to see more of them promoting musically! Do it already Pledis!!! Evil or Very Mad

What about now? Since it's 2015. Do any of you think any of them are going to graduate soon?

I already mentioned in earlier posts that Uee might possibly graduate, but now I think it's Jungah since she just recently opened her now clothing shop store. But knock on wood... let's hope not!

But I feel like they might bring in a new member to join After School. What do you guys think? New member, yes or no?

@xtinevang UEE said she'll graduate when her greed for acting grows but it doesn't look like she's getting enough acting jobs yet for that to happen. I don't know about Jung Ah, I hope she'll be around for at least another comeback but when she does go then there will be no more original members and I fell in love with AS because of the original members Sad

I don't what the member line up to change. I don't have any ideas as to who they would bring in but if they do decide to get a new member then I hope it's Jung Hyeon because she's been around so long and she's been involved in so much Pledis promotions.

Yeah... I totally agree about the original members. That's why I fell in love with AS in the first place due it's 1st generation members and now there's only one of them gals left. Sad

Interestingly enough... I'm not too familiar with Jung Hyeon as a Pledis Trainee. Had to look her up. Is she the little girl in the "Love Letter" music video when they did the Pledis Happy Christmas thing. Off topic, but wished Pledis could have continued with that.

Speaking of... since we are talking about Pledis Trainees, according to koreaboo, two of the Pledis Traniees: Jung Eun Woo & Im Na Young, will be participating in Mnet's new reality tv show, "Produce 101".

Just thought it was interesting. I hope the two trainees make it far, but I don't know... this show seems kind of harsh IMO. I wonder how they the girls get chosen to be the finalist in the project girl group.

@xtinevang, I wish so too but I don't think Pledis can afford that right now. Happy Pledis album are charity albums (i.e. a percentage of the profits go to charity).

@xtinevang I saw a bit of "Produce 101" but the performance I saw was too cutesy for me.

Ya'll, it's 2016... It's been confirmed on soompi and Pledis Entertainment; Jungah is officially graduating from After School.

Crying or Very sad Nooo... she was the last original member from After School (1st Generation). I'm happy for her yet sad but it was expected. I knew she was going to graduate due to the less promotions of After School and her clothing shop that she opened.

Since Jungah is graduating, will she be given a graduation ceremony? Like graduation pictures? Graduation song? Just like Bekah? I hope so! Because Pledis should have done that with Kahi and Jooyeon too, but I doubt it.

Will she be signing onto a different agency or just done altogether with the entertainment industry? So many questions... So many feelings... Sad

I've pretty much given up on them now. For me when too many original members leave a group.It just changes the whole perception on that group.

It's not the same any more and they will probably disband this year leaving just orange caramel.

Jungah might not of even wanted to leave but after her contract ended,pledis probably didn't want to renew it because of her age and the fact that they don't want to spend money on afterschool and probably want to end the group.

I would be extremely surprised if they don't disbanded this year.

If they don't,i feel certain Uee will leave.

I doubt pledis will do a graduation ceremony, probably just give her some flowers and she will take a picture and put it on instagram.

But hey, these are just my speculations.

I am not sure if they will just disband them.

It's true that with the Pledis Girls creating fuss because they're at that reality, we all may believe they will just prepare a new group that comes in to take their place (and HV's), but there's also the fact that AS was supposed to be their flagship (even more than Son Dambi was) and if Star Empire had a group like Jewelry for that long (yeah, I know it wasn't that succesful, but take in mind their most succesful line-up was the second and third line-up, not the first and the fourth flopped because the lack of effort from the company), why not re-vamp AS? I mean, I don't know if they just plan to stay with the remaining girls (I have my doubts Uee will continue after Jung Ah has left, though) with or without new members. I even doubt Orange Caramel will stay long enough, I mean, it seems they also go separate ways lately and Raina seems to be focusing more on being a soloist, even when she hardly gets the support from fanbases and company's promotion.

The only thing I know for certain is that, it seems, Pledis lacks of the ammount of necessary creative and stable people to manage so many acts/groups at once. I don't even know if it's a matter of budget to promote them all at once (musically). Like how SEVENTEEN fans mostly believe they are keeping the company alive, but the truth is, there was a time when only NU'EST seemed to promote, then it was OC's turn. Like they couldn't focus on each one of them at the same time, when they tried, the results weren't good and, at the end, Kahi left, Dambi left and, finally, Juyeon also left.

The first real problem to have AS come back, is the ammount of rookies from 2014 to 2016 that are so good and already took the top popularity spots. I am not saying it's impossible, some groups' re-vamps have worked miracles for them and their companies, I am just not too much hopeful it will happen anytime soon.
