To make this happen, PLEDIS brings together young talent and youthful thinking, applying innovative planning and fresh concepts. And through the creative cultural content produced by maximizing the talents and indivisual strengths of our K-Pop idol stars-in-training, PLEDIS generates new value.
PLEDIS has had great success with their girl group After School. However, many fans see After School as a one-hit wonder because they have not made a lot of noise ever since “Because of You”. However, still to this day After School has a strong following in China and Japan and still ranks in the mid of Korean song charts.
