4xU. The ComeBack. SWAN PRINCESS CLOSED.

Description

In 2008, Woolim Entertainment debuted girl group "FAERIETALE" with poor promotions, the original six barely making it onto music shows and vareity programs. Then it was revealed that their original leader was involved in a hefty scandal, causing her dismissal form the company and the girl group to disband.

What the public didn't know, though, is that the remaining five girls stayed with the company, training and working together in hopes that they'd perform on a stage once again. After a change in line up, name, and three new members, this girl group was ready to try one more time. Will 4xU succeed this time or will they fall apart for good?

Sub-Unit(s)

QUIXOTIC

Featuring the four youngest members, their concept will resemble the original FAERIETALE, light pop and a cuter concept than the rest of the subunits. However, all members are capable of maturer and different concepts than the current image and could make a turn once ready.They will usually promote in the late spring/early summer rush.
Members: Clara, Sophie, Venus, and Naeun.

PHOENIX

This subunit is the original four left after FAERIETALE's disbandment, and focus in on a more mature and strong performance, usually concepted as femme-fatale and more R&B than the group as a whole. They mostly promote in late summer/early fall, right after main group's promotions. 
Members: Venus, Naeun, Chase, and Sang Mi.

Grace

The three (soon to be FOUR) new members make up this subunit, known for their beauty, charm, and outstanding talent added to the group. They are also known as the "Saving Grace" of the original group which only adds more meaning to their name. They have a "various" theme, so fan are always anticipating the next step comeback and the new sound they'll bring. Usually will promote in the inbetween of the other subunits, giving them time to truly develop and perfect their next title track.
Members: Clara, Sophie, JJ, TBA.

IDYLL (pronounced IDEAL)

Made up of the three oldest, this is the party group and usually promoting alongside summer promotions with the group. They've trained the longest and have a sort of y, summer vibe to their songs. With the departure of TINA, it is unsure if they will continue as a trio or a new member will be added and a new sound will be found.
Members: Chase, JJ, and Sang Mi.

SWAN PRINCESS (PLEASE READ!!!!:
Depending on the age/how you answer and I interept your character, changes will be made appropiately to the subunits! :) She will, however, be officially apart of GRACE, as I have decided recently. If you already turned in your app, no need to edit or add anything!! I was just thinking and writing the other day, so I'm here to just put this there lol. I do however have an idea for the IDYLL unit as a trio, so please, if your caracter gets added on, please be patient, because I am trying to rearrange songs and ideas I have!!

Chapter 32: I don't think I've told you this, but I really like how you cycle through time in your chapters. You've got this really organic way of little skips of time and you're not afraid to show short burts and scenes and that's something I struggle with myself so A+++ good ! And I always love the interactions between each other and other idols, you're so good at dialogue and interactions, teach me senpai!

Sophie noticing that something is off with Chase makes me ;A; THEIR FRIENDSHIP. And aaaw Tina is back for a tiny bit! It's really sweet to include her in this segment and still show that she cares about the group and Jinsol despite being outies. And aaaaw look at the baby performing and gaining confidence in her skill!!

EEEY GAYO. Chase OMG now is not the time for shade hanini! NAEUN OH MY GOD WHAT IS THIS SAVAGERY. I'm so proud I could cry! 'You can't hit her you'll get in trouble' omg Sangmi! I love it when her own savagery comes out and man the tension here is palpable. Oh man the performance was so cute! And then Gigi of course. Man 23 is such an amazing song and IU is such an amazing performer, but it does get a more sinister twist with GiGi at the helm. I can just imagine the amounts of 4xU reaction fancams for that performance despite the fact that the official cameras skillfully avoided them. That's rough man. Sophie and Chase!! Of course they have soju under their bed oh my god little s. But yeesss Chase open up to auntie Sophie!

Aaand here we go with the Swan Princess, I love how you mention each of the hopefuls in-universe as well with a little bit about why they were of interest to the company and how the girls think about them. Aaaah keeping us in suspense!

JJ and Hyunsik are so cute omg, of course the idiot makes the rehearsal that much more fun. He's always had a good balance of professional and professional loon <3 I swear I could hear three different kdrama OSTs playing at once as she warmed his hands omg. ADORABLE. 'Thankfor caring, Soojin' AAAAND that's when my heart melted. Oh my god I'm such TRASH for cute romance like this ;A; THAT WAS SO CUTE.

BACK to intoxicated SPILLAGE. OH NO CHASE HANINI. I WAS NOT EXPECTING THAT. And of course Sophie is like ???HOWDEAL and at the same time takes no prisoners oh my god my child. 'Oh my god I swear if you're about to tell me Mark or Peniel is about to come into the story'. THAT'S MY GIRL. But maaaan that's such a drama mess, I feel bad for Chase but also giiiirl. Love yourself xD But also yeeeesss Sophie shaming! And more Chase shaming cause girl, appreciate your female friends more I can guarantee you they are amazing. Much well-deserved shaming has been done that night. I approve.

Happy new year!! I hope it will treat you better than last ;A; I'm honestly just really content with all the chapters you've given us so far! I'm such a er for cute romance and you write it so well, but I also love the plot moving forward and the character development and everything. So, really, just keep doing what you're doing! (Insert Luna here)

Chapter 31: Oh. My. Goodness. I literally shrieked when I saw this update. This story is always so nice to read! I really liked the girls and their roaming around to meet others. It's something I would totally do as well! I am also very excited for the new member. Fingers crossed for Fayza hehe.

Btw if you didn't know, her groupmates in forti are doing quite well on The Unit. Euijin rose from #18 to #4 in two weeks and Lex was miraculously saved at the bottom and is calmly chilling there

Chapter 5: Omg, omg thank you so much for the review! I know you've been quite busy so don't worry about it!
Also, you're right! I did use Jing Tian as my face claim for my Cinderella app! I just think that she's so pretty and her personal style fit what I was looking for in my character!
Anyway, I'm glad you liked Tian and I hope you're doing well! Do you have any plans for Christmas?

Chapter 29: this halloween chapter was so cute haha
i feel like i've watched the video before but i can't remember for usre
either way, reading about it again makes me laugh
and jb and jj def seem cute together!
i wonder when they got so comfy around each other hmm
my bad memory strikes again hahahaah

i dont wanna be harsh but like i agree with the netizen who said clara is like a 'lead'
only bc i feel like i haven't seen too much of clara yet but everytime, she's being babied
or really shy
if she is joining, i wonder whats gunna happen to 4xu tho
and hope the show wouldn't tear clara apart

I'd like to formally apologize for my lack of updates/commenting, real life (aka my job) has been consuming my liiiife.
Moving on, okay, case in point: GiGi can fall off a cliff and gtfo of the girl's lives like woooow. Honestly, the way you wrote this was really intense, I found myself holding my breath at times I didn't realize I was haha! Just the steady buildup of small scandals over the months and hate comments ulkjbsfd poor thing ;u; the fact that all the girls were so affected by it too just shows how close they are!!!
I just have a lot of feelings and attachments about these girls okay??? okay.

NEXT. HALLOWEEN.
I think any episode that has the group (specifically the boy groups lol) screaming in terror makes me laugh, so this was great lmao. JJ is perfect for this part, Chase would be laughing too hard and give it away tbh lolol. I love that she did get the ones she really wanted to, though! slibhregf dispaTCH AND FANS STOOOOP then again I read into those things but realize I'm like Chase... and do that to pretty much everyone oop s.
Jinsol/Clara is being apart of KPOP Star???? I watched the show and was so sad when Shannon didn't win -- she improved so much and I love her voice, but the boys were super cute so I can see how they won too ;;;;

LAST/MOST RECENT CHAPTER.
BRB SOBBING OVER THE GIRLS BC THEY LOVE EACH OTHER SO MUCH. I'm almost sad they didn't do like, Dream Candy or For You, but Into the New World kinda describes the situation perfectly too so I see what you're doing there. So, is the younger girl's subunit going to happen before the full group??? I'm curious because of the new plotline :'O ((which btw i have a v gay app for you but you have so many good ones already i'm--))
I'm actually glad you did a Clara-centric character??? She's so pure and small and seems to be a very support-ish character rn, so to see her want to grow and mature is like, the best thing I could ever see. I'm sad that the older girls don't see it that way though... well Naeun!! I was hoping that she'd get some good screen time -- it seems she's always in a pickle and it's nice to see her interacting with the group more ^^
uhm, Sehun and Venus are precious too, and I would never waste food -- especially when it's free lmao.
Me screaming about the girls throwing a viewing party for Clara/Jinsol, be still my emotional heart. I love the small details you put in here -- who shows up for who (esp Yoongi making a beeline for Chase like -- is it his anxiety about people??? is it his crush showing??? who knows it's min yoongi lmao) and the sheer awe of admiration and proudness from the girls for little Jinsol makes me happy. She's sooo talented and deserves to do well!!
I'm honestly so excited for the next few chapters -- awards season??? swan princess reveal??? D-d-d-ddRAMAAAA ((u know how i love the fighting))
As for suggestions, I'd love seeing the girls at the actual shows -- MAMA specifically. Another suggestion would be the girls meeting with the potential trainees??? To get a feel for who each girl is and how'd they interact with the group??? who knows maybe we'll all love one and be like like yES THIS ONE IS THE CHOSEN ONE lol Also, I hope Jinsol is able to come along and participate -- will we see more of her or just specific episodes you find important?
I hope in the new year there's more experimentation with the girl's sound. collaborations, solos (maybe, it might be too early??), acting projects (jj jj jj jj pls, the trot drama eunji was in still remains forever one of my faves even tho I can't remember the name eerk), and love interest/rivalries to be born or developed further!! :'O
anyways yeah I'm rambling -- I'm glad you're doing alright, and I swear I'll try and be better about commenting, I just get so tired after work I'm TT^TT ;;
