The last member from the original line-up of After School, leader Jungah, is set to graduate from the group once her contract expires.
On January 28th, Pledis Entertainment exclusively told Korean media, MBN, that the group’s leader and member will no longer be in the group. She will be making her official graduation once her contract expires with the agency.
She is reported to be pursuing solo activities after leaving the group in which she has already opened her online shopping mall TheJung as a designer.
Meanwhile, Jungah made her debut in After School back in 2009 as the second member and continued her activities as a lead vocal. She moved up to a position as the leader following Kahi‘s graduation in 2012.

[ +1762 / -40] All the original members are graduating. I thought that they would be making a comeback… Is the leader Uee now? She is the oldest now right? hahaahahahaha After School’s songs fit me better than Orange Caramel but Orange Caramel is the one keeps releasing songs after they were doing well.. They could have released something with Uee in similar concept with their “Bang”
