The group consists of Park Chorong, Yoon Bomi, Jung Eunji, Kim Namjoo and Oh Hayoung.

To date Apink has released seven Korean mini-albums, three Korean studio albums and three Japanese studio albums.

On April 1st, 2019, Apink's company (Plan A Entertainment) and another company (FAVE Entertainment) have merged in what is now called Play M Entertainment.
