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. 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.
