As with any idol I used to follow changing career to be an actress , my reaction is always ‘😐...ok then’ lmao (idk which emoji is the most neutral)

I get it, their Hello Venus experience as an idol/performer probably wasn’t great and they want to switch it up. I don’t watch Korean shows/movies like I consume kpop but good luck girls!!!

Seoyoung is staying in music? Aww good for her :)

Lol. I’ve always thought it was interesting how it’s almost just expected that female idols go into acting. On one hand I don’t blame them bc even the top idols’ careers as idols has an expiration date but IA with you

Seoyoung is continuing as a musical theater actress, but as far as I know she's not going to release anything as a singer :-(

I'm........ glad they're gonna stay in the industry but... could we not with new stage names? At least go with your real names...?

lol i thought it's them announcing using their real names for their stage names

I know that they change stage names in to appear more mature and professional, but PR-wise it's just such a dumb move.

Does the company not know what to do with them? Failed idols (sorry for the fans) turn to acting? But it's a universal stereotype that idols can't act sooooo.....

I feel bad. They had potential and some good bops.

fantagio is known as an acting company moreso than music, so I wouldn't be surprised if they were initially signed as actors before the company decided to debut them in hello venus
but several of the members have already done acting work under their real names, so these stage names are just... what

To my english speaking eyes, these names arent particularly pretty so idk why they didn't use their real names then
