On May 3, several sources reported that After School member Kaeun confirmed her appearance on Mnet’s ‘Produce 48’ and finished filming.

In addition, they also reported that Kaeun placed first out of the Korean trainees and became the center position. Therefore, she will split the center position with the Japanese center, Miyawaki Sakura for the first performance. Each one will stand center for each verse.

Produce 48‘ combines Korea’s ‘Produce 101’ and the concept of the Japanese girl group, AKB48. The ultimate goal of the program is to create a first-ever Japaense-Korean girl group.

It’s gathered much attention even before it began, from casting Lee Seung-Gi to become the new “representative of national producers” and FT Island’s Lee Hong-Ki to become the vocal trainer. Furthermore, both I.O.I and Wanna One had apparently paid a visit to encourage the new participants.
