After School 1st Single Album - New Schoolgirl
Produced by : Brave Entertainment
Distributed by : LOEN Entertainment, Inc.
Release Date : 2009.01.15
Tracklists :
01 - Playgirlz
02 - Ah
03 - Bad Guy (나쁜놈)
04 - Ah (Inst.)
Reviews :
01 - Playgirlz
This is definitely one of the most upbeat songs that served as a great introduction track for the After School ladies. I really liked how they rapped about themselves as "five people who know how to play" and "remember us, we’re a new logo". The choreography was something unique, especially a certain routine between two members which aroused curiosity when it was first showcased in last year’s SBS Gayo. A pity that the song is not the usual 3 minutes long.
02 – Ah
The only full song that is found in this single. This dance track seems to be different from the usual melody that the Brave Brothers would usually produce. Together with their powerful choreography, this creates the unique ‘AS style’ that one has never seen before. After all, we have never seen any group that is able to pull off the sexy vibe just by wearing their ‘in school’ training outfits. This song definitely brings out the charismatic charms of After School, which makes you wanna go “Ah” in admiration like how they would do it in their MV.
03 - Bad Guy
This is a bad-a** track about girls turning nasty towards the guy they had once loved. In fact, it seems like they’re in this resentful mode right from the beginning of the song till the end. Personally, I feel that it’s quite an appropriate song to listen to, especially when you’re mad at someone. After all, we shouldn’t resort to physical means. Instead, we should shift our bitterness and start singing "I’m gonna break your neck so run." Definitely, I would have hoped that this song wasn’t banned as I was looking forward to see if they would incorporate their anger into their dance routine.

After School 1st Digital Single - Diva
Release Date : 2009.04.09
Tracklists :
01 - Diva
02 - Diva (MR)
Review :
The Brave Brothers are at it again, this time creating another catchy dance song entitled Diva. Now, the ladies are back, singing a song about professing their love, and claiming that they’re the only "Divas" in the eyes of their man. The melody of the song is sure to be stuck in your minds in the first play, especially the chorus (where it goes "ohneul bam nehil bam…"). Of course, the rhythm changes during Kahi and Beka’s raps, and not forgetting Jungah’s (ballad-styled) bridge. All in all, this song is definitely one of those that you’ll never get tired of, and you might even find yourself screaming, "Diva diva d-d-d-diva" along with them as how Beka would do during their performances.

Digital single – Dream Girl
Artist : After School
Album : 대 동경소녀 OST
Genre : Dance Pop
Release Date : 2009.05.22
Tracklists :
01 - Dream Girl
02 - Dream Girl (Inst.)
Review :
Dream Girl is a remake of Morning Musume "Love Machine" song. Besides the Korean lyrics, which talks about realizing your dreams and becoming the star that you’ve always wished to be, there is the "AS touch" to it. This was done so by adding the rap which Beka did towards the end of the song. The MV on the other hand, showcased them in their casual outfits and the things that they did during the recording. In general, it was interesting to see them doing j-pop styled song for a change and this song really helps to brighten one’s day.

Reviews :
This was like one of the most anticipated collaborations by fans of both (or either of the) the Pledis artistes. Both the song and the dance had a futuristic feel to it, yet exuding sexy at the same time. Not forgetting the cool move that Kahi did during her part, which definitely "wow-ed" many of us. Apart from the song (which talks about the features of the phone), one would subconsciously start mumbling "Amoled amoled a-a-a-amoled" along with them. Like Diva, this song also had this addictive and repetitive sentence. Heck, even my non kpop friends could remember that sentence after listening to it once. Now that proved the effectiveness of this CF song! In fact, I always forget that it’s just a CF song!

Review :
With the admission of the two new secretive members Raina and Nana, After School is set to change the standards of girl groups. The group revealed their concept of the nation’s first admissions and graduation style that freely rotates and changes their members, attracting great interest through the admission of Uee last April.

Raina (21) and Nana (20) were revealed through their teaser site as individuals that had trained long and hard with "a strong base" that also hold the mysterious image of charm and humor. With the unveiling of the new 7 membered image, many have been showing explosive interest and attraction.

The title song of the new album is "Because of You" It’s said to be a shibuya-kei style song with an electropop feel. After School will be revealing their intensive performance that is said to never been seen before amongst the nation’s girl groups. It begins with the sad melody of a piano and violin that folds into an addictive chrous. A rap that utilizes the members’ individuality finishes the song off in style.

"When I Fall" is a song that member Kahi actually participated in producing. It has a clear melody that fits perfectly into the title of slow R&B. The song is about a girl that begins love by herself and perfectly showcases the charm of After School’s newest member, Raina.

02. 뱅! (Bang!)

Review : Track listing translated by AfterSchoolCraze

Track 01 - Let’s Do It
Kahi and Jung Ah were directly involved in the drum session which starts with a fast beat and strong drum that will quickly capture your ears with an intense feeling.

Track 02 - 뱅! (Bang!)
Written by the best producers (Lyrics by Kim Tae-hyun, composed by Kim Hee-sun), the title song "Bang!" was supposed to be included in the 2nd single album. To make the song more complete, more time was needed to make it into a more elaborate track. Doing away with formalities, this is an experimental song which has the latest trends. After School’s unique colors can be felt through this song.

In this song, the drum sound will form the song’s frame. Also, After School’s powerful vocals and the dynamic beat and rhythm will create endless enthusiasm while listening to the song.

With the best upgrade, After School’s performances and Bang!’s music and stage are expected to create a new sensation and impact.

Track 03 - With U
After School’s Kahi, who had written "When I Fall", will participate for the second time as the lyricist to the Sweden song "With U", which will soothe the heart with its calm medium rhythm and beautiful piano melody, on top of After School’s fantastic harmonized vocals.

Review :
Pledis Entertainment releases their project album with Son Dam Bi and After School. The album is a thank you gift to the fans that have supported them. After School members have participated in writing the lyrics. The title song "Love Love Love" is a dance pop song about love that will warm up the cold winter for the listeners. "Someone Is You" is a mid-tempo ballad penned by After School's member Kahi, whom wrote about precious and beautiful memories into the song. You will be able to hear the rich harmony of the After School members in this emotional ballad. A portion of the proceeds from the album sales will be donated to the 'Save the Children' organization which helps children in need. (Credit : soompi)

Review :
After School leader Kahi makes her solo debut in style with her first mini-album. Known for her fierceness, the dance goddess presents a softer, elegant image this time. Kahi, who has participated in songwriting for After School releases in the past, wrote the lyrics for the title track "Come Back You Bad Person". The song begins as a lyrical melody, and becomes increasingly strong and dramatic with the addition of electro dance beats. The mini-album also features the Kahi-penned "Roller Coaster" and "One Love", which highlights her sweet vocals. (credit : YESASIA)

The fierce girl group sports chic and feminine spring looks for their first full-length album, which is also the first Korean release with fourth generation member E-Young. After School's exciting new title song 'Shampoo' is composed by Japanese DJ/producer Daishi Dance, with lyrics by poet Won Tae Yeon. The album also features the Jung Ah and Raina solos 'My Bell' and 'Leaning Against Time', the R&B song 'Play ur Love' (from Kahi, Jung Ah, Raina, and Nana), and 2011 newly recorded versions of their hits Bang!, "Because of You", and When I Fall. A "Pre-school Girl", believed to be a new upcoming member, features in the song 'Funky Man'. (credit : yesasia.com)

Son Dam Bi isn't in this group because she cannot be promoting with them while she's filming Hype Nation. I think her being in After School was just a stunt to get After School known.

even though they're modeled from the same concept as PCD, i'm actually excited to see them debut

i wasn't into the whole cutsey thing anyway.

now we get to see real dancing instead of puppy paws and girly jumping

(yes im talking about snsd. not saying they can't dance..i understand that they have a certain concept they must adhere to)

oh haha. When I watched this performance with Son Dambi and when I saw the After school pop up I was wondering why I haven't heard of them.

But now I know why! (: I'm pretty excited. After pussycat dolls? awesome.

True true, there are alot of cutesy girl groups now, something completely different is going to be mindblowing! :D
