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 (Korean요정 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. In June of 2016, 4xU debuted with the original five of FAERIETALE alongside three new members, making the group an 8 membered group consisting of Sang Mi, Naeun, Chase, Tina, Venus, JJ, Sophie, and Clara. As of November of 2016, member TINA has left due to personal reasons and member CLARA has temporarily left to participate in KPOP STAR6. At the new year of 2017, Woollim has dropped hints of a new member, revealed to be taking the role of TINA as the SWAN PRINCESS.

As of JANUARY, the SWAN PRINCESS was revealed to be none other than RYU SOMIN under the stage name FAYZA. Somin was originally apart of Woollim's co-ed trio FORTI. She will join promotions in the new year and promote under sub-units as well, although no information is confirmed about which ones she'll join besides the 'new member' unit.

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.


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 (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, FAYZA.

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.

Chapter 31: the girls at the awards show was everything omg lmao
altho its scary to see how they can still get hate for just checking up on their friends for a bit
even if other groups were doing the same

but hints of the new memberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
gigi and 4xu comeback at the same time issssssss yikes tho omg
i'm kinda nervous to read about their interactions
i dont think we've seen gigi and the original group actually seeing each other in person since what happened
and with how the members reacted to just her being mentioned during one of their interviews....

also jb purposely searching for jj to catch up with her ayyy
and sehun being alll shy about complimenting venus xD
i wonder whats up with suga and chase again tho....
was starting to miss sophie and btob interactions haha
OOOOH SANGMI got to meet mamamooo!!!! i'm looking forward to 4xu and mamamoo's friendship hehe
congrats to the girls making it as nominations!!
Chapter 30: look who's finally back around to comment lel
i love clara's determination throughout this chapter, it was really nice to read about!
jyp's reactions to her were so amusing too haha
and chase's lil quip at the end of the chapter xD

everyone coming over to spazz over the maknae was adorable too haha
nice to see the girls making friends in the idol world and interacting with em hehe
per usual, i'd love to seeing them interact more often, and maybe make even more idol friends

and ofc, i love the interactions btween sehun and venus!!
call me biased haha
but they're so open to each other it seems like
i really like how they feel ok telling each other their inner thoughts and feelings!
and ofc kaistal makes it all the better
altho the two have broken up in rl, i will still go down w this ship lmao
I love the new chapters to be honest and I can only say welcome to the new girl so WELCOME SOMINNIE!!! Anyway I love how the girls acted with Gigi and how pissed naeun was surprising some of the girls a bit as they knew Naeun was friends with her. And I mean chaos at the award ceremonies I love it. I just wish there is a chapter or two with the girls love interests and maybe, because naeun is my character, focus a bit more on myungsoo and hers relationship with how they hurt each other and the girls helping a crying naeun with somin surprised over it or something but also like show me some love to the other loveliness I'm dying for love
AaaaaaWWWWwwWwwWwW Yeah --
I'm sorry I didn't turn in my app in time, my shifts at work have been messed with and I'm trying to figure out how to balance everything orz
So yeah, to the chapters~
Variety 04: IDK if I commented or not, but omg this is so cute -- I honestly ship DoubleJB more than Hyunsik and JJ X'D ;; they're just so naturally playful and competitive, it makes for a fun relationship I think ~ But I love the way you used an actual episode of the Real GOT7 for this! :D Also, YES JJ GET REVENGE FOR CHASE LMAO Bambam is such a trouble maker he deserves it --- all in all, it's super cute, and I hope that comments don't get to JJ like it did to Tina :(((
Music Show 02: It's soooooo cute omg???? Tina doing one last performance and all of 4xU there -- i'm in tears leave me TT^TT Then Clara's interest in the show outside of 4xU -- I can be both sides, but I'm glad Clara went with her gut and participated. The girls do tend to baby her and she gets enough of that from her brother, hm? alSO VENUS AND SEHUN I ship it so hard omg, they're so cute and sarcastic together, also his shaggy hair recently is like A+ fam yesssssssss AND THEN THEY GO ALL OUT AND MAKE A VIEWING PARTY OMG OMG OMG That's so cute?!??! I love that you used Sohee as Clara's persona for KPOPSTAR -- they def look like Jeonghan and Sohee was meant to be apart of a group before this. c: Good job of making everything work together !!
Awards 01: YES AWARDS SEASON, I'M SO HAPPY FOR THIS. That's so cute, but it's sad that Clara won't be able to participate :c YOU INCLUDING THEIR STYLING I'M SO HAPPY. Fashion is the best, tbh, and I'm laughing -- Chase would def hate the puffy princess gowns, despite how pretty they look xD Jinsol coming back and being cute aaaaah too cute!!! Also LMAO at the awards show -- ofc these girls would be bouncing around!! Esp Chase omg -- she's like "why would i??? stay with these girls??? i live with them???" ahahahaha brb crying over all the interactions . you write them so naturally, I'm honestly surprised these girls don't exist irl!!!
awards 02: OMG SBS WITH THEM PERFORMING AND GIGI -- 's about to hAPPEN??? I'm so happy you made Tina's departure the focus of Chase's and Yoongi's struggle vs. Chase and Lay's coming together, it really fits with how you write!!! cLARA SLAYING OFC -- Sohee's such a good match for her, she's well rounded and so is Clara from what I've read -- is Clara going to continue under her stagename or go under Jinsol when she's done???? :'O oH GIGI'S HERE AND SANGMI ABOUT TO BEAT HER I'M HERE FOR IT --- 23 is a bop omg but gigi singing it??? it just kinda rubs salt into the wound omg -- and then the sUSPENSE WITH THE NEW MEMBER (though i read it now rip) omg hyunsik and jj is literally a winter kdrama moment aaaaaaah that's so cute?!?? ROOKIE QUEENS, ROOKIE QUEENS, ROOKIE QUEENS!!!
Reveal 05: FAYZAAAAA!! I haven't read her app but she seems so cute -- her quiet nature and easily distracted ness aaaaah no wonder su-chin is happy lololol, one less sophie and chase to worry about xD her answers were really unique, actually, she loves hip hop to dance and be apart of as a group but personally she loves classical??? (i lied i read her app a little lmao) aLNJEWSUIFJKD DO KARD SONGS I'M BEGGING PLS a co-ed group with kard songs would be absolutely wild omg omg omg aND SOMIN/FAYZA BEING SO HONEST ABOUT HERSELF LIKE YOU GO GIRL OMG
ohhhh we get kinda serious -- you really write the reaction to venus and her sister's passing so well: the shock, the "what ifs" ... aaaaah, i'd love to see it work out between venus and fayza but with how long it took naeun and sangmi to recouncile.... y i k e s
as always, you never fail to impress me with your writing skills! congrats on re-entering uni in feb, i hope you do well and still find time to update us with your writing and these fics ^^
Chapter 33: Oh my goodness I saw this when I woke up and I saw Euijin and Lex and I simply screamed! I was so worried that Somin wouldn't be chosen because there were some amazing apps, but thank you so so much for choosing her after all <3 You made me so happy!

You really do portray her shyness and not being easy with words well! I also really love how you portray her boys Lex and Euijin.

Wow... The tw part about venus' sister got me though... You've written that one out so well. I can understand Venus, but she should really give Somin a chance. Not because she's my character but because she's a good person, feels bad about it herself and did nothing wrong. I'm glad they are going to talk

I'm so excited for MAMA though! I can't wait to see what's going to happen! Thank you again!
oooh i'm exxcited to seee the new member!
and as always, sorry for the slow activity on my end
i'll be sure to comment on all the chapters soon!
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)
Ohoho! I'm so excited to see who the swan princess will be!

Rise victorious, Fayza xD
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 31: Can't wait to see the new member ^^
