Pledis Entertainment and Mnet resolve their differences
For the first time in two years, After School will be performing on Mnet‘s ‘M! Countdown‘!
On December 22nd, the girls will be teaming up with members of Pledis Boys to participate in the show’s Christmas special with their winter single, “Love Letter“.
This is good news for fans, as Pledis Entertainment had announced a boycott on Mnet ever since the ‘2009 MAMA‘, citing unfair standards as their reason. Mnet responded to the claims by failing to invite Pledis artists to their music show and award ceremonies.
With Orange Caramel, however, the prospect of a reconciliation opened up. Orange Caramel performed “Shanghai Romance” on their shows twice during their promotion cycle while the two companies continued to work to resolve their differences.
A representative of Pledis stated, “We took ample time in discussing the matter and trying to take in and understand the opinion of the other party. After two long years, the issue has finally been resolved. From now on, fans will be able to comfortably watch Son Dambi, After School, After School Boys, and our other artists perform on Mnet.”
