After School Red or Blue, Time to Choose


Sweet or sexy? Innocent or mature? Poll time!

With rapper Bekah graduating from the group to pursue a career as a designer in Hawaii, the eight remaining members of After School have split up into two sub-units for simultaneous promotions of their single albums. In the racy Red corner are Ka-hi, Jung-ah, UEE, and Nana with the tracks “In the Night Sky” and “Hollywood.” In the bubbly Blue corner are Raina, Lizzy, Joo-yeon, and E-young with the songs “Lady” and “Wonder Boy.”

The divisions seem a little unbalanced, but when it comes down to it, the groups make sense. I feel After School Red kind of has an unfair advantage because they have the most popular members and the strongest performance-wise, while the members of After School Blue are the ones that couldn’t pull off sexy that convincingly. Yet, the girls of AS Blue are undeniably the members who best pull off the youthful, cute image. In fact, although the whole saccharine act is overplayed, AS Blue seem to have a better handle on their image than AS Red, but it may just be the fault of AS Red’s stylists.

With most girl groups either being sexy or cute, After School splitting off to do both at the same time is a smart, interesting move by Pledis Entertainment. They get double the exposure in half the time. People can pick one or the other, and Playgirlz will probably support both.

Now follows the videos. Poll at the bottom.

After School Blue have been accused of “plagiarizing” Fin.K.L‘s “Forever Love with their song “Wonder Boy.” The word “plagiarism” gets tossed out really easily in the KPOP music scene, but Pledis has come out to say that they meant this to be an homage to the iconic girl group, which sounds very plausible. There are also rumblings that the “After School Boys,” the new yet-to-be-named Pledis boy group debuting by the end of the year, were featured in this MV, but I can’t really tell.

After School Red has yet to release a full MV for “In a Night Sky,” so here’s the teaser.

    FIRST!
    just wondering but why are they always adding new members?

    • sweetraine says:

      because after school debuted with an admission and graduation concept. they’ll keep on adding new members until someone decides to leave(graduate). soyoung was the first to graduate and rapper bekah officially left this month.🙂

  2. lovemashimaro says:

    second T^T

    because they are the girls group that finish high schoool and they need new people to cover their age rate that keep going up every year.

  3. (",) says:

    Not familiar with the members so correct me if I’m wrong. I think one of Orange Caramel member is also in AS Blue.

    This website is close to death.

    I choose red aside from the fact that I can’t take the cutesy concept that is blue all my favorite members are on red. My only issue with red is I feel like the fierce image and dancing doesn’t match the song. It’s like blue could have sung that song and it would have worked for them. Red needs to have a better song that fits their image but aside from that, I choose them all the way.

    THERE IS A NEW ARTICLE ON A WEEKEND?
    THERE IS A NEW ARTICLE ON A WEEKEND?
    THERE IS A NEW ARTICLE ON A WEEKEND?

    THIS IS TRULY A DAY TO REMEMBER.

    ALSO AFTER SCHOOL JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER “SINGERS” SUCK ASS. ABSOLUTELY ZERO SINGING SKILLS. ABSOLUTELY MAXIMUM PLASTIC SURGERY. FUNNY HOW THE ABILITY TO SING IS LAST PRIORITY FOR PEOPLE CALLING THEMSELVES “SINGERS”.

  10. American Girl says:

    lolz. i chose both. blue and red becuz i cant stick 2 one concept.

  11. ashley says:

    I like them both but I like the music the girls on the Red team are doing.

  12. […] their comeback stages as After School divided in two, the music video for AS Red‘s “In the Night Sky” has finally been released. I […]

  13. ouna says:

    After the release of these somgs i think blue won over red but red have a better opportunity to do better .hot and sexy image is more intresting than just being cute, red will last longer and have more attention

  14. ouna says:

    * songs

  15. Aiashine says:

    Im not liking them anymore because of their concept and this? I remember some group that have a sub-unit.. i really like them when they was only 5. Sooyoung and Bekah included ofcourse.

  16. Christine says:

    AS red all the way!!! After school never should have added those extra members, I liked them way better when they only had the original members. Why do Korean record companies always like to add more people to a group? It doesn’t add anything and it just makes people like them less!

  17. Christine says:

    omg….can Korean girls stop getting similar plastic surgeries? Besides Kahi, Uee, Jung-a, and Bekah, I can’t tell any of the other girls apart. =__________=”
