It has been reported by Korean news portal sites that After School Bekah will be leaving the group. After School had a unique concept in which members would be admitted and would graduate from the group. However, members have been admitted to the group so far with no members "graduating" until now.
After School made their debut in 2009 with their single "Ah" as a 5-member group. UEE joined the group for their second "Diva." A few months after their debut, Soyoung withdrew from the group to pursue acting and was replaced with the admission of Raina and Nana. The group was then joined by Lizzy and most recently, Yiyoung (E Young).
Bekah, one of the original After School members, will be the first member of After School to officially graduate from the group.
According to the agency Pledis Entertainment, "After much thought with the After School members, the company, and Bekah's family, Bekah has decided to 'graduate' from After School and return to Hawaii to pursue her studies for design. A graduation photoshoot for Bekah has been planned and she will spend time with her fans before her graduation."
Despite graduating from After School, it has been reported that Bekah will continue her relationship with the members of After School and will design one of After School's album in the future.
