    Sketchbooks unite!

    It's a new year, and I think it's about time THE POPE had their own thread.

    Enter and be blessed!

    CRAYON POP (크레용팝; coequally known as SLAYON POP, CRAYON POPE, or simply THE POPE) is a 5-member girl group under Chrome Entertainment that debuted in 2012. Active in both Korea and Japan, the holy entities known as THE POPE spread love and joy wherever they go with their effortlessly catchy hymns and innovative, trend-setting dance moves. Though the word of THE POPE was initially heard by only a few apostles, the holy entities weren't afraid of a little hard work, hitting the pavement to spread their message of charity and humility to those far and wide. It was soon after that their popularity exploded in A.D. 2013 with the release of the iconic and game-changing smash "Bar Bar Bar" (translated from Korean meaning "Bible Bible Bible"), which became a viral hit, ascending CRAYON POPE to a heavenly new level of popularity. Now in the new year we await the return of THE POPE from the holy corridors of Chrome Entertainment to deliver us their new hymns. In the meantime, let us pray.

    In the name of the father, the son, and the holy SoYul. Amen.

    Most people don't. She's the Judas of Crayon Pop. A part of the crew, but always at the far end of the table just in case...

    YASSS!!!! This house of worship shall be my place of refuge from now on! For I have been touched by the angelic sound of The Pope's voices!

    *falls on knees and confesses all sins*
     
  5. I bet y'all are Ilbe members!
     
  6. Look how evil SoYul is...

    The others are cute.
     
  7. For some reason, I never really cared for them... Until five minutes ago when I watched their MBC Gayo street performance and my life changed. I have seen the light. (˘ʃƪ˘)

    I only knew about Arisa today. At least she's in a better position than After School's Kyungmin.
     
  9. FINALLY. This thread is MUCH overdue~
     
  10. I am a firm believer in the Crayon Testament!!!
     
  11. I'm pretty sure the plans to add Arisa were cancelled after the group became suddenly popular. She left Chrome to be an actress under a different company. She starred in an indie MV not too long ago:

  13. Yes!

    I hadn't realized she'd left Chrome. But maybe that only applies to Korean promotions? Guess we'll find out next time they go to Japan, which apparently should be early some time this year.

    Soyul is my favorite, and it's hard to believe these girls are in their mid-twenties.

    Well technically early 20's as 4 out of 5 are still under 25, but yeah, older than the average idols which is actually part of why I like them so much. Dunno, just feels like they're a bit more mature and enjoying themselves because they want to be doing it. Of course that's just my interpretation.
     
  17. Of COURSE she is.
