Following rumors and speculations among fans, Pledis Entertainment has confirmed that After School will be split into two units and will simultaneously promote new material this July.

According to Pledis, “After School’s 2 units will be promoting at the same time and will rival each other in an unusual competition.” The eight-piece group will be split into two equal groups with four members each. This marks the first time a Korean act/group has split into units to promote during the same time frame. The Red team will be promoting with a sexy, fierce image, while the Blue team will take on a fresher, more upbeat concept. 

No other information has been released as of yet, but the group is currently in preparations for their upcoming second fan meeting on July 9th.
