  About Hello Venus 헬로비너스  

Hello Venus 헬로비너스 is a girl group formed by Tricell Media, a joint venture between Pledis Entertainment and Fantagio, in 2012. It was announced in July 2014 that the two companies had ended their partnership, with the remaining members continuing under Fantagio.

They are the second girl group to debut under Pledis Entertainment, following After School. The group consists of Nara, Alice, Lime, Yooyoung, Seoyoung, and Yeoreum. Debuting on May 9, 2012, they were initially After School and Nu'est's sister group. Since the split, however, they are a Fantagio exclusive act.

Pledis Entertainment collaborated with Fantagio Entertainment, an acting agency, for Hello Venus' showcase in April. Yoo Ara and Yoonjo were Pledis trainees and had been among the final candidates for After School.

Lime was in the pre-debut line-up of a girl group called Viva Girls under Medialine Entertainment, along with Nine Muses' Kyungri, but the group disbanded and the members left the company.  Lime performed as a backup dancer for Chaeyeon.  She rapped on Lee Jung's "들어봐" ("Look at Me" and Honey Family's "역전의 드라마" ("Reversal of Drama") under the name Haley.

Hello Venus originally had seven members, including Pledis Trainee Nicole, but Nicole departed Pledis shortly before debut.

2012: Debut

Hello Venus first became known under the name Venus. On April 17, Hello Venus was officially announced with a teaser image, along with the opening of an official website. The final group had six members, containing two members from Pledis (Yoo Ara and Yoonjo) and four members from Fantagio (Alice, Nara, Lime, and Yooyoung). On May 9, Hello Venus debuted their mini-album Venus, with "Venus" serving as the promotional track.

On July 4, the group released a digital repackage of their first mini-album, Like a Wave, with the song of the same name used for their promotions. The group was nominated for Best New Female Artist at the 2012 MAMAs.

On December 12, they released their second mini-album, What Are You Doing Today?
