They released their first studio, A year, in April 2012 to celebrate their first anniversary.

The year is shaping up to be extremely bright for them as they release their fifth EP, pink love in November with the title track love. The song was Apink’s first number 1 chart on Gaon’s weekly and monthly digital charts, and pink love topped Gaon’s weekly album chart in its first week of release.
With love, Apink became the only girl group to win first place on all three major Korean music shows two weeks in a row in 2014.

On April 19, 2021, Apink released their digital single, Thank you, to celebrate their 10th anniversary. In the same month, IST Entertainment announced Naeun’s departure from the agency but assured fans that she would not be leaving the group anytime soon. To the fans’ relief, it was true.
In December 2021, IST Entertainment announced the group’s full comeback with a special 10th anniversary album. But, before the album promotions, YG Entertainment (Naeun’s current agency) told fans that she would participate in the group’s upcoming album and music video promotion, but could not. be present for return promotions due to disputes. schedules.
Many fans took this as an indication that Naeun was leaving Apink soon, and many accused her of ignoring her duty as a girl group member and only focusing on her acting adventure.
Naeun took matters into his own hands and replied with the above message. Apink members have always shown nothing but love and support for each other. Naeun asking her fans to support her members and being absent from the group’s schedule just once shouldn’t reflect anything, but that she has a different schedule and unfortunately it’s hard to adjust it according to her group activities as it is part of a different entertainment business now.
We hope to see the six members together in their next comeback promotions and wish them good luck in their future endeavours.
