Hello, I was wondering if you have any information about Lizzy's schedule in Brazil for the Infinity Challenge? I live in one of the host cities for South Korea and I'd like to know if/when they're coming here. I know you're not obliged to have that information or anything, I just looked everywhere and couldn't find anything x-x
Hi! Unfortunately, as far as we know, it is very hard to find their schedules on other countries especially when it is not generally the whole After School group. Unless the producers of the show posted a schedule. The best source of AS schedule is as-fan.com so maybe in case there will be a schedule list for it, we’ll post it on our Forum or Twitter since our site is currently on maintenance :) We’ll inform you once we found something ^^
do you know if there was a live stream or recording of AFTERSCHOOL's recent fan meeting in Japan?
Hello! Unfortunately, we think that there wouldn’t be any recording of it since it will be produced in a live DVD just like from their past fanmeetings. If there are fancams recorded from the event, it should’ve been uploaded already but there are none so we think it is prohibited ^^
News: Orange Caramel’s song “Abing Abing” is a hit for Baskin-Robbins
With their constant unique concepts receiving love by many, Orange Caramel recently released a surprise digital single “Abing Abing”. As soon as it was released, it ranked high on real time charts and made a name for itself as a new summer song.
‘Abing’ is the shortened word for ice cream bingsoo, which is a cold Korean shaved ice dessert. The new album boasts a unique concept and is already showing sighs of becoming a trend. The music video, is beginning to go viral due to Orange Caramel’s quirky charms.
The song also interestingly refers to the brand Baskin-Robbins 31 in its lyrics such as “run to Ba-BaRo (short for Baskin Robbins)” and “Thir-thir-thir thirty one Abing bing”. Pledis Entertainment’s director Woo Youngseung explains, “This song is a collaboration with Baskin Robbins. It is also written by the same hit-song writer, Seo Yongbae, who wrote Orange Caramel’s ‘Lipstick’ and ‘Catellena’.” He also says they have no problems with the product’s name in the song because they have no thoughts in promoting this song on broadcast outlets.
The question here is whether the new song should be seen as a CM song (Commercial song) or another single. Director Woo Youngseung explains that Baskin Robbins offered the roles of CF models for their product and instead of a short CM song, he thought it would be better to make it a complete song for fans to enjoy; So in another light it is also a single.
Orange Caramel is not the first to encounter this situation. Akdong Musician also released a song for Paris Baguette called “Bean Dduk Bingsoo” which grabbed number one on several charts. The song became so popular that the company sales raised by 50%. Many are wondering if Orange Caramel will jump over this amazing feat.
The cute trio will be continuing to promote its song “Abing Abing” in nationwide theaters and online through its music video.
