Just in case Uee, Raina, Nana and Lizzy weren’t enough for you guys, it looks like Pledis Entertainment has begun looking for the ninth member of After School. That number nine, however, is causing some unrest among SNSD members. SONES, infamous for their undying support of their group, seem to be up in arms about this new recruitment! Keep reading to find out more about the auditions and the angry SONES!
Auditions, which will begin on August 18th, will consist of four separate stages. Each stage is separated by only a couple of days, so it looks like the eliminations are going to be quick. The new member is set to be announced by the end of the summer on September 1st. Pledis has stated that they are looking for Korean, Japanese and Chinese girls ages ten to twenty-six that have a wide range of talents. For more information on auditions, click here.
I, for one, am always excited for new members to groups. It really keeps things interesting and fresh. Although I’m sometimes a little disappointed when new members are sub-par, I’m keeping my hopes up for this one… Maybe they’ll get another Raina!
As for the SONE issue, all I have to say is: Sorry, SONES, but the last time I checked, SNSD does not own the number nine.
