I think though it is just a news that doesn't really concern AS, I guess it is a form of publicity for people to know more about UEE being a member of AS.
And really, I was re-watching their DIVA performances but got a fright when the scene showed UEE because the poor girl put on the same, old serious expression all the time - apart when it is her turn to sing
UEE looks really cute in that pic!
And anyway, here are some short updates!
1.

Today is a day filled with UEE's news ...
UEE will be featured in ballad singer Jo Sung Mo's latest music video. UEE will portray a couple with "Korea's younger brother", Yoo Seung Ho.
On June 27th, the filming for Jo Sung Mo's MV, "Please Take Good Care Of Her" took place at Kyung-Hee University. Like many other music videos, the plot revolves around a sad love story. The filming reportedly took over 24 hours; ten hours are said to have been spent in the rain. Jo Sung Mo apologetically cheered, "You are working very hard despite the conditions. I'm sorry you had to get so wet from the rain," to the actors.
In response to being selected for this role, UEE stated, "My heart goes to this project ... I have learned more about acting through my appearances in Mighty Mouse's "Love Cast", MBC's drama "The Great Queen Seon Deok", and SBS's idol drama "You Are Beautiful". Although I suffered from a cold as a result of getting hit by the rain, it was a fun experience."

Wife UEE meets Wife Yoona
Yoona was paired up with Park Jae Jung on the drama “You Are My Destiny,” as the two acted together as a married couple. UEE mentions that she wanted to meet Yoona because both have been “married” to Park Jae Jung and share the experience of being girl group members with a great amount of individual activities. UEE expresses her wish to become friends with Yoona.
The two ladies meet during a taping of MBC’s Music Core as Park Jae Jung fulfills UEE’s wish by introducing them to each other. Park attends the taping to cheer on UEE, who is featured on Mighty Mouth’s new album. From beginning to end, the meeting happens in good spirits because of UEE and Yoona’s honest, carefree personalities, and the two supposedly exchange phone numbers.
Nude photos of UEE appeared today. But it was later confirmed to a act by the Anti - fans. >_<
Here is the quote from PLEDIS Ent:
"There is no way that it is real. The photos are 100% fake. We have confirmed with our artist as well, and she is in extreme shock and disbelief, and has stated that they are 100% fake. Fans should rest assured that these photos are 100% fake."

I heard that UEE is going to be in another drama called Buddy Buddy and her character dreams about being a national golf player. I wonder why they couldn't go with swimming or baseball? Since she used to swim when she was younger and she knows some baseball since her dad is a baseball coach. I have nothing against golf UEE is going to have to work extra hard since she doesn't know how to play golf. I can't wait to see her in it anyways!

Golf drama "Birdie Buddy", featuring After School's UEE in her first lead role, will begin airing on cable network tvN on August 8th, following the conclusion of "I Need Romance". "Birdie Buddy" began filming in March 2010 before losing its airdate on MBC, and many thought the drama would never be broadcast.
Billed as Korea's first golf-centric drama, "Birdie Buddy" is based on a popular manhwa and tells the story of Sung Misoo (played by UEE), a girl raised in the countryside who dreams of becoming a top golfer. tvN related Misoo's underdog story to those of the "ordinary people" contestants on "Korea's Got Talent" and said that they felt her quest to become the best golfer would be a compelling story for the whole family. A 25-minute teaser is available on the Youtube channel of Group 8, the production company behind "Birdie Buddy".
UEE will also appear on KBS2's weekend drama "Golden Pond" in August.
Recently, Pledis Entertainment revealed that After School would split to create sub-units ‘AS Red‘ and ‘AS Blue‘. We also reported that the members of each sub-unit would be voted upon by fans and confirmed at the fan meeting on July 9th.
On July 5th, Pledis Entertainment tweeted,
“After School’s two units! The match-the-members event will be revealed gradually from the 5th to the 8th! Which team will UEE be in?”
In the photo, UEE is found wearing a sky blue top with red shorts. Since she is wearing both sub-unit colors, fans’ curiosity regarding UEE’s sub-unit membership has risen.
Fans commented, “I wish they would just reveal it all at once” and “Wouldn’t she end up in the center regardless of which team she’s in?”
After School’s UEE gets taken away in a police van
On July 7th, netizens were surprised to discover a photo of After School’s UEE in a police van.
The photo was first shared on an online community board under the title, “Where is UEE going in a police van?”. With two men sitting in the front, UEE is pictured alone in the backseat.
As it turns out, the picture was actually taken from the set of her new KBS drama, “Ojakgyo Brothers“. Netizens commented, “I was so surprised thinking it was real”, “Only UEE could look so bright in the back of a police van”, and “Her beauty still shines from so far away”.
Her drama is scheduled to begin airing on August 6th.

With a drama, group promotions, CF activities, and a Japanese debut coming up, After School’s UEE is looking at one busy schedule.
UEE was recently cast as the leading role for KBS’s upcoming drama, ‘Ojakgyo Brothers‘, and is currently in the midst of filming. Because it’s a weekend drama, the filming schedule isn’t as tight as other dramas, but adding After School’s schedule on top of that definitely makes up for the difference.
As previously reported, After School will be promoting as two units this month. The girls are also preparing for a showcase on July 17th, which will be followed by the release of their official Japanese debut single on August 17th.
They also signed on as models for cosmetics brand “The Saem“, for which they must attend fan signings and various other events as a part of their endorsement duties.
Her professional obligations aside, UEE’s been receiving acting lessons and holding script rehearsals whenever time permits. A representative of Pledis explained, “UEE has always been athletic so she has a lot of stamina. She exercises whenever she has spare time in order to manage herself. She’s also been on a diet and has a slim new body to show off.”
We’re glad that she’s in high demand, but let’s hope she doesn’t overdo it!

U-ie for Le Coq Sportif – Golf is the Secret to a Slim Waist?
Since U-ie was recently voted as having the best swimsuit body out of female idols it’s no surprise people want her diet tips. Though she has always been known for her healthy body type, new pictures of U-ie have some fans asking, “U-ie, right?” due to her new eye catching waistline.
During U-ie’s recent photo-shoot for ‘Le Coq Sportif’ she caught the eyes of everyone on set due to her pure beauty and was asked the secret to her slim waist.

All these things helped to create her solid but slim body type. An agency official also stated U-ie’s long hours playing golf to improve her skill helped her body form and kept cellulite away while slimming her waist. While on the photo-shoot set U-ie demonstrated what she learned by showing off a cool swing just like pro. Her golf drama ‘Birdie Buddy’ is set to air on tvN this August along with the drama ‘Ojakgyo Brothers’ which is currently being filmed.
