After School To Debut In Japan With "Bang!"

9 member girl group After School have announced their long-awaited Japanese debut with a remake of their successful Korean single "Bang!", due for release on the 17th of August!

The girls have already been introduced to a Japanese fan base through a performance at Tokyo Girls Collection and collaborating with Namie Amuro for a single from her special album "Checkmate!" titled "Make It Happen".

"It's an absolute honour to be able to make our first overseas debut in Japan!" said group leader Kahi. "We'll do our best to show people in Japan our image of being an entrancing performance group".

Not only that, but they will perform at a special event in July at Tokyo's Akasaka BLITZ: "AfterSchool Japan Premium Party- Bang! Bang! Bang!". With their intense dance routines and visible energy, Kahi, Jung Ah, Jooyeon, Uee, Bekah, Nana, Raina, Lizzy and E-Young will hope to show their uniqueness amongst a growing wave of acts from Korea who are trying to "make it happen" in Japan.

Having debuted in Korea back in 2009, After School won a newcomers prize at the 19th Seoul Music Awards; they captivated audiences at Tokyo Girls Collection in March with their signature marching band style performance.
