On a recent episode of ‘Taxi‘, former After School leader Kahi was a guest and proceeded to drag up an issue from the Mariana Trench from back in 2011. It was, of course, of her complaining again about her exit from After School and how she had to share the attention with all these new bitches she hated.
“After School originally started with five members. However, as the members increased, some of the original members started to get upset. Despite the continued conflict, the company did not listen to me. I would always teach the new members when they came in, but they would just go on air and call me scary. I had no one on my side. I, too, am a woman and a part of the company. That’s why I decided to leave. I once said on air that there’s an outsider in the group, and that outsider was actually me. I didn’t want to act like friends with the members. I wanted to perform my role as a leader correctly.”
I don’t have the time or inclination to review all the shit that happened years ago in this post, but her statement is hilarious on multiple fronts since by almost all accounts she was actually terrifying to the new members, she said members deserved to get hit and outcasted members like E-Young, and she centered everything around herself for comebacks.
Part of this understandably blames Pledis Entertainment and is just a general rant bigging her own struggle up, which is whatever, but the sob story about After School as a group is amusing. Would love to get the thoughts of Jooyeon, Raina, and E-Young (sorta Lizzy) on this, though I’m guessing it wouldn’t warrant more than an eye roll.
