After School's Jungah Worries About How To Make A Living After Leaving Group

Kim Jungah has become the third member of After School to "graduate" from the group, after her exclusive contract with Pledis Entertainment ended earlier in January.

On Jan. 28, a representative of Pledis reported, "Jungah's exclusive contract with us has ended. We wish her luck in her future activities."

Both Jungah and her agency decided to amiably part ways after discussing the contract.

However, the singer revealed in a recent blog post that she is unsure about how to earn money and is worried about her future.

The blog post was written on Jan. 5, a few weeks before the announcement of Jungah's departure from After School. Titled "Let's share our worries. What are you thinking about?" Jungah wrote about her anxiety over how to earn a living now that she is older.

"As I get older, I'm really very worried about how earn a living," she began. "All I can do is sing, but I don't have many opportunities."

"I'm too mature and old to keep chasing my dreams," she lamented.

Jungah then continued by asking her blog readers what they are currently worrying about and let them know that sharing difficulties in tough times can make things a little easier.

Currently, Jungah operates an online clothing store called "The Jung" that first opened in June 2015.

After School is a K-pop girl group under Pledis Entertainment that features rotating members with an "admissions and graduations" concept. Jungah was the last of the original members that debuted in 2009 to leave the group.

After School currently consists of members Uee, Raina, Nana, Lizzy, E-Young and Kaeun. For now, Pledis has announced no plans to add a new singer to the group and they will continue to promote as a sextet.
