Pledis Entertainment to Debut Another Girl Group, Hello Venus
Pledis Entertainment revealed a picture of their latest girl group, Hello Venus, on April 17 through their official website. Hello Venus is After School’s sister band, and one of Pledis Entertainment’s next generation idol groups, alongside their new boy band, NU’EST.
Hello Venus is a six member girl group comprised of Yoo Ara, Nara, Alice, Ra Im, Yoon Jo, and Yoo Young. Their team name is supposed to have the duel meaning of a friendly “hello” and a mystical “Venus.” Each member has built their own following prior to their debut, including Yoo Ara and Yoon Jo who made their names as Pledis’ main trainees. Yoo Young, the youngest member of the group, was born in 1995.
“Hello Venus will depart from the classic, beauty and love image of the goddess Venus. Instead, it will create a new 21st century, friendly and welcoming type of Venus image,” Pledis Entertainment said.
Hello Venus is currently busy filming their music video and taking photo shoots for their debut in May. They are planning to expand their roles from music to TV dramas and variety shows, as well. Pledis Entertainment has Son Dam Bi, After School, and NU’EST under their management.
