The title track, "Love Love Love", was written by After School's main vocalist, Raina.

History[edit]

The “Happy PLEDIS” album is a project album purported to give back the love and support the artists have received from their fans; it also asks people to look around themselves with a warmer heart in the winter season. Pledis Entertainment's artists Son Dambi, After School, and their sub-unit group Orange Caramel each released their own version of the “Happy PLEDIS” album. “Fans will be able to see a lovelier side of After School through this album, along with a sweet melody that will make this winter season that much more beautiful.” Pledis also spoke about Bekah's absence from the album; “Bekah was unable to participate in this album because she is on break at her home in Hawaii. She’s been working for the past 3-4 years and was unable to go home, which is why we let her go this time. She will be in Hawaii for the next one or two months.”[1] A portion of the profits from the “Happy PLEDIS” albums was donated to the “Save the Children” organization.

The girls first performed "Someone Is You", before performing "Love Love Love" later.
