After School Says Its Performance Will Beat SISTAR′s
After School showed it′s determined to beat out anyone, even the powerful SISTAR, with its pole dance.
The members of After School talked about their upcoming promotions for their sixth single album First Love at the showcase and press roundtable event held on June 13.
Raina said when asked whether she had seen SISTAR′s showcase, "I saw videos online, and they looked great. The stage was filled with Hyolyn′s vocals, and I became determined to work hard too."
She added, "I can′t say we′ll be better than SISTAR, but I believe we′ll provide a lot more sights to see onstage with our pole art, which we′ve prepared for six months."
SISTAR held its own showcase for its second studio album Give It To Me on June 11.
Jung-A said, "When I saw articles that SISTAR would be doing a ring dance, I became nervous that it would be similar to our pole dance. I was relieved when I found in the music video that they sat in rings, rather than use them in their performances."
"We′ll have to work so hard we′ll be climbing to the tops of our poles," she added.
After School′s return comes about a year since the group′s last. The title song First Love was produced by Brave Brothers, and is a slow and groovy piece about first love. The album also contains Love Beat, Cried While Putting Makeup On, Dressing Room and Time′s Up.
