Story

After School (Hangul: 애프터스쿨), stylized as AFTERSCHOOL in Japan, is a South Korean girl group formed by Pledis Entertainment with an admissions and graduation concept. The group’s current lineup consists of Raina, Nana, E-Young and Kaeun. As of September 2018, After School has had eleven members who have joined and „graduated“ since their debut as a quintet in 2009.

After School officially debuted in January 2009 with „AH!“ from the single album New Schoolgirl. In 2010, the three newest members at that time formed the group’s first subunit, Orange Caramel, and in 2011 a second subunit was formed when the group was split into two teams, A.S. Red and A.S. Blue, for the release of their fourth single album.

After School received attention for their unique live performances, often incorporating different performance styles into their songs, including drums, tap dancing and pole dancing, which garnered praise from Billboard who referred to the group as the „top performers in K-pop“.

Since 2015, After School has halted group promotions and the members have embarked on individual music, acting and modelling careers.
