Hello Venus (Hangul: 헬로비너스; stylized as HELLOVENUS) is a South Korean 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 (the other being After School). The group consists of Nara, Alice, Lime, Yooyoung, Seoyoung and Yeoreum. Debuting on 9 May 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 trainees of After School, both having performed on their first album Virgin. Both girls were expected to join After School at some point. Yoo Ara, along with fellow Pledis trainee Kyungmin, were the final two candidates to become After School's ninth member, however, current After School member E-Young was chosen instead. Lime was in the pre-debut line-up of a girl group called Viva Girls under Medialine Entertainment; consisting of several members including Nine Muses member Kyungri. However, the group disbanded and each girl left the company.
Lime was a backup dancer for Chaeyeon. She was also a rapper in Lee Jung's '들어봐'(Look At Me) and Honey Family's 역전의 드라마 (Reversal of Drama) under the name Haley.
The group was originally a seven member line-up; consisting of the six girls and a Pledis Trainee Nicole. Nicole departed Pledis shortly before Hello Venus's debut.
