Be free, Gaeun! Can she take Yunjin with her too? :(

THANK GOD... i was so worried she was gonna stay with pledis and debut in a new gg, but i'm sure anyone in her position with half a brain would leave

Thank goodness. Pledis squandered her talent, she deserves so much better.

good. pledis didnt do anything good by her.
im still bitter that she didnt make it into the produce 48 group

I want the world for her

Congrats!!!! Amazing news, she’s free :))

i mean, staying at pledis would be a waste of time because it's not as if they were letting her do much there. she needs a better agency.

also, pledis needs to state whether or not they are fully disbanding after school or if they want to revamp the group with completely new members.

I agree. This could’ve been a good chance to release a goodbye song all together as after school or confirm that AS is still around and that kaeun is “graduating”, so there will be more activities with new members in the future. Otherwise this just leaves the fate of after school up in the air again with no closure, and its like she was never a part of the group.

Well done!

...but to where?

This girl is far too talented to just disappear.
dior_chic 4th-Jul-2019 11:41 am (UTC)
I think she’s well known enough to be picked up by a smaller company. Honestly anything is better than Pledis imo

Even if she stayed and let's say Pledis does put her in a new GG with YJ, the company's track record of treating GG well is so bad, and with the disbandment of Pristin, people will just hate this new GG

Be free, girl. I don't think she would've fit in to the IZONE concert cause that club is full of fetuses, but I still wished her and Chowon get recognition in the future.

Good for her that she’s finally able to leave! Pledis have shown that they would not support her as an artist adequately, so i hope she can find a more supportive company. And to think son dambi and after school were their first successful artists and now this is how they treat their female artists
dior_chic 4th-Jul-2019 11:43 am (UTC)
Yea pledis is no different than YG to me right now as in being a boys club - their male artists are much more of a priority. If pledis debuts another girl group, I need to honestly just avoid them because lbr it won’t end well for them and I don’t need more disappointment
lizanka23 5th-Jul-2019 01:59 am (UTC)
Exactly. Even YG didn’t used to be such a boys club until a lot of their female artists left but i guess since they’re companies run by men they see more potential in boy groups even though you can see what revenue and success you can get with a girl group when you actually promote them properly and put resources into them ala twice or snsd. For YG big bang was their first success, so i can kind of get their attitude but for Pledis women put them on the map. It’s so disappointing.

Pledis owed her a song after pd48 -.-

So bittersweet
I don't know if she'll be able to redebut but i hope she will continue her modelling and restart her acting activities. She's a star and deserves success

here's a list of things pledis has done for her:





















(exactly)
be free, beauty, be free!
kyulkyung 4th-Jul-2019 12:11 pm (UTC)
good for her but like most of the pristin members i don't see her re-debuting as an idol.

and much more importantly, i need to know what's the deal with yunjin. pledis definitely ain't debuting a new girl group anytime soon.
kcaomei 4th-Jul-2019 03:07 pm (UTC)
yes, finally!! BE FREE<3
iglooaustralia 4th-Jul-2019 03:24 pm (UTC)
good! pledis sucked every bit of life out of the poor girl. i can't wait to see her thrive now!
ohlookshiny 4th-Jul-2019 07:17 pm (UTC)
obligatory fuck pledis. i hope they just let all their female artists/trainees go bc they won’t promote them whatsoever and aren’t even recruiting female trainees anymore iirc.
lizanka23 5th-Jul-2019 02:07 am (UTC)
Wait seriously?? No female trainees at all? This is such a big betrayal given their history. They had women like son dambi and Kahi that were so involved in their promotional concepts and in company matters from what i recall and this is what they become. This is expected behavior from companies like bighit or YG but pledis? I guess i’m not getting into any future girl groups they debut...
ohlookshiny 5th-Jul-2019 10:59 pm (UTC)
yeah it’s true:

http://pledisaudition.co.kr/_ENG/html/dh_board/views/112?

i totally agree, like their female artists were instrumental in building the company into what it is today and now we’re just throwing them all away essentially. such bs. i just had a quick look at the other posts and they’re all saying male trainees. i honestly can’t see another gg debuting under pledis for a long time.
lizanka23 10th-Jul-2019 02:21 am (UTC)
so sad. i wish more people would boycott pledis but people barely boycott YG so who knows if they'll ever change...
