After School will be saying goodbye to an old friend, while saying hello to a new album.
Uee, singer and actress from After School, will be officially graduating her team after 8 years. On May 31st, Uee uploaded a hand written letter on her fan cafe announcing her leave. In the letter she wrote, “I am quite surprised that it has been 8 years since I made my debut as a freshman in After School. I used to feel awkward to graduate, but that time has come for me. She continued, “Even though I am not After School’s Uee anymore, I will never forget my graduation as I’ll try my best to become a bright Uee.”
Uee expressed her apologizes to her members, as well as her long time agency, Pledis Entertainment. From now on Uee will be focusing her career as an actress than a singer. News reports rumor that she is currently in talks of joining a new agency, and will most likely sign with YulEum Entertainment – home to star actors like Kim SungRyeong.
