I was revisiting some older Kpop tracks and came across the magic that is After School.
And it struck me just how hard these girls work for each comeback.
Check it out below!
Their first three songs were instant hits and blasted them to stardom.
3. Because of You**
** You hear remixes and covers of this song on Korean TV all the time.
Before their debut, Pledis said that their concepts would be heavily influenced by the Pussycat Dolls.
The Pussycat Dolls must have loved their style because when they had their Asian leg of their world tour, they had After School open for them!
They were already known for their amazing performance skills (((did you see the choreography in the When I Grow Up performance?!?!?!??)))
They then began to commit heavily to concepts, starting with BANG.
The girls learned how to play the drums to fit into the marching band concept of Bang!
And they basically killed it.
The next few years were spent making Orange Caramel a HUGE success and becoming mega-famous in Japan.
Then they came back with Flashback which is still such an iconic Kpop song today. Every Korean probably could sing this chorus :)
Like with Bang! the girls decided to commit to an entirely new concept:
They all learned how to pole dance.
Nana even showed off the ridiculous bruises she got from training for 6 months.
Various members have "graduated" or been added, including Kahi who went solo after her long stint with After School.
(She actually founded the group^^)
