after school, chin chin, chinchin, MBC, pledis entertainment, radio, taeyeon
Well not really, but a night or two ago, Taeyeon‘s ChinChin Radio released After School Slut<3‘s new song, Neo Ddaemoone/Because of You.
Problem is, Pledis Entertainment is saying that MBC Radio (more specifically, MBC ChinChin Radio) had absolutely no right to release the song just yet and is blaming them for leaking it. They say the song was leaked when they aired it because people were able to rip the song and then distribute it [illegally]. Although that often happens (duh,it’s the 21st century), Pledis is upset because MBC allegedly released it ahead of time. So bottom line is, Pledis is upset that it wasn’t the right timing.
However, MBC is pointing the blame on Pledis Entertainment! Here’s what they had to say, thanks to Heartfacee @AKP:
“The song had completed its review procedures so we didn’t pre-release it. It was already approved. People said Chin Chin has done this before. That is not true. They (other companies) apologized for their previous incidents and released corrections on false reports.”
MBC continued, “It takes many meetings and discussions to talk through and approve a new song. The broadcasting station meets with the company of the singer and discusses the air date of a song and whether or not they have the right to broadcast it. That’s how we decide our rights of airing a song. For this specific song, we went through and finished all the discussions. We checked with the company and after that, we aired it.“
MBC then stated, “Legally, the song has been approved. Because of that, we had the right to air the song. We understand that different companies have different ways of promoting. But we can not look out for each company and producer’s daily promotion plans.“
Finally MBC finished it off by saying, “After School’s company has been criticizing us and it’s only now that we feel like we are being blamed for nothing. We are taking on the bad side of this situation when we didn’t try or do anything wrong.”
Hmm… so MBC wants an apology from Pledis Entertainment for accusing them of not sticking to their agreement. This probably explains the reason why ASS didn’t perform at MBC Music Core last night even though they already made their comeback at KBS Music Bank.
Oh well, all I can do about this now is… Share ASS love! Before there was 4MINUTE, before there was 2NE1, there was ASS and their Boob Grabbin’ Rappin’ Twinz.
>>Debut w/ Butt bounce + Under leg crawl<<
Synchronized floor dancing = hot.
After School’s concept is to switch members in and out. They’ve already had one “graduate” and since their debut, they’ve had three new girls. Seriously, ASS is probably the only group that’s actually good at what they do and doesn’t let their eye candy in the way of that. All members of ASS are tall, I think the shortest one is 170CM, and they ALL have great bodies. Trust me, abs and butts, and boobs, and no guts.

They’re all hot and the music all suuuuccks.
Seriously disappointed in them. I want to like them cause they’re so good looking but then we get stuff like Diva and Ah!.
Typo in the title.

Okay to be honest, didnt really read what AKP had to say but I read this on soompi:
Companies tend to pull this kind of stuff alot aka putting the blame on radios for leaking their artists music in order to garner attention for the son. Instead this time it backfired and it pissed the hell out of MBC that the company is claiming MBC leaked their song when (I believe) they gave MBC the right to play it.
This has happened a few times and if Pledis just admits that this was all a misunderstanding instead of continusouly saying MBC messed up, AS wouldn’t have been banned.

and this is all my words. i just took everything that i remembered from what i read over the past few days 🙂
There are similar comments on AKP. In fact the only way to find the truth on Allkpop it seems is by ignoring the articles and reading comments.
wow. hope they get all this sorted out.
clearly this is just a publicity stunt by ASS’s management, Pledis Entertainment w/c in turned backfired at them badly, ouch!
ASS debuted way before 4minute and 2NE1 but look at where they are now? Members leaving, recruiting new ones and their songs doesn’t appeal that well to people .
They should reorganized if they want to succeed or better yet fire their management firm!
whooaaaa now. ASS had a lot of popularity thanks to the help of Son Dambi. The only problem is they they steered clear of 2NE1 and 4MINUTE so a real competition hasn’t really been set yet. And they’ve said from the beginning that they will have members leaving and members coming in. They’re taking the concept from a Japanese bands called Morning Musume. It’s normal, it’s not because there’s conflict or their popularity is bad.
I miss So Young… 😦
Basically what happened is that Pledis did not alert the MBC radio about the song’s release date then later accused MBC radio for ‘leaking’ it. They were trying to create publicity noise for AS since AS still has very little public recognition in Korea. This kind of trick has been done many times before by other companies so no one in Korea fell for it. Pledis’s reputation has gone down the drain in Korea because of stupid noise marketing like this one, and they’re getting violently bashed everywhere. AS’s fans are embarrassed but at least Korean fans are sane enough to know that it’s not AS’s fault.
Chin Chin was targeted several times before by these publicity seeking crooks because it’s such an influential show. The problem is now it’s gone beyond Chin Chin and the whole of MBC is furious. BIG mistake by Pledis.
lol…i really can’t tell if you’re dissing after school or ur complimenting them sometimes
I don’t really care too much about this stuff. All this drama, lol.
But I’m pissed that Taeyeon, who’s pretty much the image of Chinchin, is getting dragged into this by antis and angry fans. =P

Some how I think you could have put the title of this story in better words >_>
Its a shame the AS was screwed by their own company…they would have been a huge success without all this drama and bad management…the members are all so talented n hot…ok maybe just a few of them not all, I kinda dislike some i think they are just too Blaaahhh…anyway, i hope everything is sort out soon n may they have a good comeback finally~
all i can say is, taengoo isnt at fault~ thats all.
Hope this matter doesn’t get out of hands.
Oh God Jung Ah’s hair! Why would they do that . . . D:
Anyway, overblown issue is extremely overblown.
I really love After School. Only thing is lately they always seem to be trying to compare Uee to Yoona (lol) and well . . . that’s not really a fair comparison at all. Yoona destroys in every conceivable way. 😛
Honestly, I like AS better than other “similar” groups like 2NE1 and 4Minute. It’s too bad that they get caught in this dispute between MBC and Pledis
It’s rumored that Pledis will release an apology letter though. I hope the whole issue will end soon…
