Apink was originally a seven member group but for some reasons Hong Yookyung left the group so now they are only six members namely: Park Chorong, Yoon Bomi, Jung Eunji, Son Naeun, Kim Namjoo and Oh Hayoung. APink is under Plan A Entertainment or was also known the Cube Entertainment. They debuted on April 19, 2011.

I’ve known APink because of EXO. I was watching EXO Showtime and they were dancing APink’s No No No and I really liked it and the choreography is good and cute so I searched the title of the song and found out that it is from the group Apink. Then searched their other Music videos and I liked almost all of their songs. I really like APink because some of them are Actresses and are really good in acting. So now let’s meet the members below! :)

"Park Cho Rong"
