The ladies of After School sent an excited ripple through its worldwide fanbase recently with latest details on their comeback next week with “Flashback”. However, this return has been bittersweet with fans as it will finalize the official graduation of the group’s original leader, Kahi.

After School’s latest ‘Encore Playgirlz Tour‘, which took place in Japan last night, marked Kahi’s final promotional event with the group, so the ladies had plenty of surprises in store for its audience. The group performed a number of popular songs as well as special additions including “Slow Love”. Furthermore, it was announced that Nana, Raina and Lizzy would make their debut as Orange Caramel in Japan in the fall.

However, the spotlight was on Kahi, who dazzled in a few special stages including “Come Back You Bad Person” and “Gift” from her solo album, as well as “In the Night Sky” as an encore with A.S. Red.

After the final performance of “Tell Me”, Kahi reportedly hugged each member of the girl group as the girls all began to sob, then gave the audience a deep bow that lasted over ten seconds. During her goodbye speech, Kahi showed her gratitude for fans, staff and her fellow group members, promising to continue support After School & Orange Caramel.

A photo of the eight ladies backstage was posted on After School’s Japanese Facebook page, and included a goodbye message from Kahi, sharing, ”Thank you so much for today. I won’t forget this day [and] that everyone has always shown so much love. All of the fans have been so kind to support After School. To everybody, every member of the staff, truly thank you very much. Thank you for the many years that will come for After School in the future. I will cheer everyone on to do well! After School, Orange Caramel, and on.

It’s truly bittersweet to see Kahi leaving After School after all these years, but we’re glad that she’ll continue to inspire and shine in the spotlight, and look forward to her solo debut in the fall. Share your thoughts & feelings in the comments section down below!

Recently, an online community post, titled ‘The three idols who are also artists‘, has been drawing a lot of interest as pictures of three talented idols and their impressive drawings were posted.

The three selected by netizens to be the best artists among all idols were Rainbow‘s Jaekyung, Girl’s Day‘s Yura, and A Pink‘s Na-Eun. These three young ladies are particularly known to have discovered their natural ability to draw via art and design classes that they have taken within their respective schools.

Jaekyung’s drawing of a tiger especially impressed netizens due to its realistic and detailed look. As her particular artistic skill has amazed and captured the attention of the general public, she has been chosen as the best idol-artist.

Netizens who saw the compilation of drawings commented, “Because they’re art majors, it’s expected that they would draw well,” “The tiger is drawn really well,” “I acknowledge that these three are really artists,” and “They draw pretty well. Even after they retire from being idols they will be able to live off of their artistic works and paitings.

Jung-Ah to become After School’s new leader

cid:20120610_afterschoolcomeback_01-600x350.jpg

After the rumors that suggested that Nana may become the next leader along with Pledis Entertainment‘s vague answer that neither refuted nor confirmed the rumors, many had been awaiting news about the next leader of After School.

On June 13th, a source within Pledis Entertainment tipped Star N, “It seems the empty leader position with the graduation of Kahi will be taken on by Jung-Ah.”

With Kahi’s leave and news of solo career, fans and netizens alike had been anxious to see who would fill her shoes. It seems that Jung-Ah, a member who has promoted for a long while alongside Kahi as well as now the oldest of the group, is most likely going to be leading After School with their comeback.

The source explained, “Although there is still discussion going on, unless something happens, Jung-Ah, as the oldest unni, will be promoting from the leader position.”

In related news, After School will be coming back with their new track, “Flashback” on the 21st with their newest member Ga-Eun.
