Okay, I'll admit, when I first heard of AOA, I had no idea that Youkyung was a member. I was shocked when I looked them up for this series that AOA had an eighth member. (Since I've only listened to AOA and not AOA Black)
So, if you don't know who Youkyung is, she is the "half angel/half-mortal" of the group, since she's only a member when they do their band promotions. She is the drummer of AOA Black.
She was in their debut song "Elvis," and they had a band scene where she was playing the drums. She was also in the song "Get Out." She didn't sing or dance, she just played drums in the band scenes. Then AOA came out with the sub-unit AOA Black, which included members Choa, Jimin, Yuna, Mina AND Youkyung. However, she did not sing, nor dance in those videos. She just played the drums and acted in some of the scenes in the video.
After Confused was released, it seems like AOA would rather do the sexy concept in their videos. It seemed like they stepped away from their band days and decided to stick with the sexy concept.
I've also heard that Youkyung did not want to dance or sing; she just wanted to play drums and be in a band. Maybe FNC respected that, but I don't know
Now, here is a video where Youkyung is cheering on her fellow AOA members in their Heart Attack comeback. (I think that's what she's doing; the video didn't have any subs :( )
There was also news that AOA Black will be making a comeback, but everything is kind of up in the air right now.
It was also asked in one of the articles if AOA will ever comeback as a band again
Here are some articles about the AOA Black comeback and about Youkyung:
What do you guys think? Do you think AOA Black will make a comeback? Will we see Youkyung again? What are your thoughts?
