Yo! It's about that time we had another fan project! After the overwhelming success of our "Thanks to: After School" Message Book , we decided to give it another go! As always, our goal is to give the members something they can look back on and something that shows them they have fans from all over the world. Our admin (Cindy) will be in Seoul during the Summer and deliver it to the Pledis building! We want to thank you everyone who participated in the last project, and we hope that just as many of you will take part in this one!

After School isn't back yet
. There aren't even rumors about their comeback. But if you've been following playgirlz&boyz on twitter or facebook, then you probably know that even though After School isn't active, we are
. International fans can't do chants at concerts, show up at fanmeetings, or hold up signs at airports. But we've always been there
. And we will be. Through the good, the bad, the graduations
, everything. That's our theme :)
After School's 3rd single, "Bang!" came out with a song titled, "With U" (link)
. There is a line that reads With You, Right Here
in the chorus. The song is basically letting someone know you're waiting for them and that even as time passes, and things change, you'll be there.
: With You, Right Here. (or Right Here With You)
: We will be making an After School 2014 Yearbook, framing the memories of After School and their fans. Our yearbook has a twist
! Unlike any other yearbook, ours will have a special page that includes... -drumroll-
... a song! We will explain it in detail below, but basically, it is like a musical greeting card
. After School will turn our special page, and our song
will start playing! Don't know what song
we're talking about? Keep reading!
(subject to change/be edited)
if you're wondering why it says "right here with you" instead of the original lyrics "with you right here", i messed up :P
The number of yearbooks that we will be able to make for After School (either one or 8)
will depend on our donations we receive. Hopefully, we will be able to give each member their own yearbook
, but if not, one big one will do just fine! :)
Designed by: Cindy (check out our design process on twitter)
Print Style: Colored, Printed and Binded, 20 pages (front and back = 40) (goal)
Now, onto the "possible" yearbook contents! (in no particular order)

"Special Song" Page
Thanks To Page
As you can see, it's a pretty heavy project
with many, many cool and interesting pages (maybe more to come!). THIS WILL ALSO BE AVAILABLE TO FANS! (we aim to make the ultimate fan memorabilia for both the girls and playgirlz&boyz!)
Here's where it gets interesting
. If any of you guys are 2PM fans, they have a song titled, "Thank You". Fans of 2pm rewrote the song and the whole stadium sang it for them at their solo concert (link)
. Now, as mentioned earlier, international fans don't have that luxury. But
, that won't be able to stop us!
We have rewritten the first verse, the hook, and chorus of "With U"
to match our support for After School! The next step is to have international playgirlz&boyz sing along to our version
(in Korean)! It's actually very easy
. We provide the lyrics, and a model track for you to sing along with. All you have to do is record your voice singing along to our track and send it to us! Then, we will mix all of our voices together into one big chorus along with the instrumental.
This will be the song that plays on our "special page"
. It doesn't matter if your Korean pronunciation is terrible, if you can't sing, or if your voice breaks windows! It's all about the passion ^_^ and it'll be all of us together. It's the ultimate personal gift from international fans to AS!
