After School’s Profile

After School
At first I thought this girl band who made their first debute in 2009 was just the same as Girls Generation (because these girl bands have a lot of members). But after hearing some of their songs,  I think After School was quite different. Their songs are more beat and more rock …like “Bang!” and “Bastard” .
After going through some personnel reshuffle, finally now they are pretty solid. They have Ga Hee, Jung-ah, Jooyeon, Bekah, Uee, Nana, Raina, and Lizzy
Even though there is a unique variation in age among the members, it doesn’t become their obstacles to be solid, Ga Hee, their leader, 29 years old and Lizzy, the latest member, 17 years old.
At the beginning they were known as “the Pussy Cat Dolls” of Korean version. Well, I think this girl band looks almost as provocative and sexy as the Pussy Cat Dolls…in asian version. Don’t you think so? B)

Anyway, I like the idea that this girlband always put on a kind of “uniform” as their outfit on their performences ;)
