Seventeen's "Admission Card" reminds fans of After School's admission card?

Posted: 01 Feb 2013 07:23 AM PST

On the 24th, Pledis Entertainment revealed Seventeen's first official member Mingyu and posted his profile together with his "admission card".

Some fans noticed some similarities of Seventeen's admission card with After School's very own admission card. The admission cards both look like school admission cards from students revealing their profiles. And both styles are in hand written format and members can be seen in school uniforms as their "ID".

Fans commented "I knew the profile card seems familiar in a way" "I was really hapy to see this kind of profile card in groups, I love it in A.S. and now I love it that Seventeen is using the same style" "Pledis why didn't you do this to NU'EST!? they have their uniform too! I want a NU'EST Profile Admission card" and "I really love the hand written touch to the admission card makes it feel more cute with the color pencils and stuff"

Back in 2011 pledis said that they would debut an After School Boys then turned it into NU'EST & Tempest (now Seventeen).

maybe this a little reminder that the AS Boys concept is still there in it's own small way with NU'EST's uniform in "Face" and Seventeen's "Admission Card"
