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?

FAERIETALE (Korean: 요정 이야기; stylized as FAERIETALE) is a South Korean girl group under Woolim Entertainment that made their debut in 2008. The group consisted of Sang Mi, GiGi, Naeun, Chase, Tina and Venus. However, due to a controversial scandal, GiGi was removed from the lineup and the group was since disbanded. Woolim has mentioned, however, that there is a chance that there might be a new version of "FAERIETALE" to be seen soon.

1) Subscribe if you're going to apply, please! (:
2) If you're chosen, please comment every 3-4 chapters! I know life exists outside of here, but I'd still like to hear from you~
3) Please have fun and be creative, there will be more direction for character creation in the cheatsheet!
4) ALSO, no bashing of my or other's characters, okay? Please and thank you.
06/20: Hey guys!!!! So I'm FINALLY finished with Gigi's profile in case you all wanted to take a look, in which case click here to see it! (: Thanks guys <3
08/18: So guys, I have an announcement: Tina's creator, snsdyurifan, has deactivated their account and subsquently won't be commenting anymore. I'm sort of at a loss here, because I'm not sure what to do, which is why the IDYLL chapter hasn't been posted yet. Should I open up the slot for Beauty and say goodbye to Tina so another applicant may take it? Should I just replace her like nothing happened with my own character? I really would like you alls opinion, because it wouldn't be fair to make that decision and change the fic without consulting you. You guys are just as much authors of this story as I am.... Thank you, please commenting ASAP if you can ^^ ; ; ;
08/28: After a little over a week, and from some of your opinions, I've decided to open up applications for a new member. I'm sorry if this isn't what you wanted, but after thinking it over, I'd really love if I could have the application readily available, I had feedback on writing the character, and I just wouldn't feel like it'd be fair for me to create a character to fill the void... So yeah. Current applicants CAN make an application for Swan Princess, but new applicants are more than encouraged to apply ~ I don't know how long i'll keep it open (hopefully not too long... I'd really like it to be as soon as possible but applications take time so... :< ) But thank you for supporting me in this decision!! Hopefully we'll have a great new member <3

Featuring the four youngest members, their concept will resemble the original FAERIETALE and will usually promote in the late spring/early summer rush.
Members: Clara, Sophie, Venus, and Naeun.
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.
The three new members make up this subunit, and are called the "Saving Grace" of the group, hence their group name Grace. They usually promote more towards late winter/early spring and have a more Top Pop Hit sort of feel to them.
Members: Clara, Sophie, and JJ.
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.
Members: Chase, JJ, and Sang Mi.
