Pledis has revealed the face of their newest After School member, Gaeun.
According to Pledis, 17-year-old Gaeun went through intense training with Pledis and has the most powerful performances along with charismatic vocals among all the Pledis trainees.
Acknowledged for her musical skills, Gaeun has been ‘admitted’ as the fifth newest ‘freshman’ of After School.
Gaeun spent her junior high school days in Japan, and her fluent Japanese skills will be a huge benefit to the group as they promote in Japan.
“I’m both nervous and excited now that I have been confirmed as the newest member,” Gaeun remarked. “I want to become a helpful and necessary member for my After School seniors.”
An insider from Pledis remarked, “After School is an ever-changing group, with the addition of UEE, Orange Caramel, and Yiyoung since their debut. We hope you look forward to yet a new After School, with the addition of newest member Gaeun.”
Gaeun will hold her very first stage performance after the drop of After School’s new album on June 21st.
