Orange Caramel, a subunit of girl group After School, and FT ISLAND frontman Lee Hong-ki have expanded their interests beyond showbiz and released books on travel and nail art, respectively.
According to Pledis Entertainment, the agency of Orange Caramel, the members ― Raina, Nana and Lizzy ― have released a book, “Cheongchun Yeohaeng (Travel of the Youth),” about their recent trips around Korea. They took a day trip in central Seoul, checked out famous restaurants in the historic city of Jeonju in North Jeolla Province, and reveled in the cozy, laid-back atmosphere, the agency said.

“As we experienced something that we had never experienced before, we got to discover different sides of us that we had never known,” the members said through a press release.

The 144-page book will be released in Korea and Japan on July 12 in regular and limited editions, his agency FNC Entertainment said.
