After School made their official debut in January 2009 with digital single AH! and was branded by their company as Korea’s Pussycat Dolls. Their first single wasn’t a real hit, but they garnered attention with their commanding live performances.

New member Uee was introduced in March, making it a six-members group. The new team released their second single Diva in April with moderate success; followed by Dream Girl and collaboration with Son Dambi in Amoled.

AS underwent another reshuffling as So-young left the group – or graduated according to their concept – in October due to health reasons.

New members Raina and Nana were introduced a month later; just in time for the release of Because of You in November 2009 which became their first major chart topper. The ladies also shed their early PCD style with a more sophisticated and classier image which was well received by fans.

The seven current members of After School are Gahee (leader), Jung Ah, Jooyeon, Bekah, Uee, Raina and Nana
