Chae Kyoung is a study-abroad student from Korea that came to Japan and Pretty Top to learn the art of Prism Shows in the anime, Pretty Rhythm Dear My Future. She is a member of the Korean Prism Show Unit, PURETTY. Chae Kyoung is a refreshing girl who comes from a house with lots of money. She's good at finding diamonds in the rough, but has a problem with thinking she can solve everything with money. She's a former model and celebrity, and pushes her way through. She uses the word "celebrity" as an adjective for things she thinks are cool, and also uses the Korean phrase "gwaenchanh-a (괜찮아)" (pronounced "KEN-CHAN-NA" in the Japanese) to say "All right" or "OK". Her elder brother is Yun-su, the designer and owner of Dear Crown, while her mother is Myeong Ja, a former actress and Prism Star herself. Her best friend in Prizmmy☆ is Ayami.
Chae Kyoung has a wavy dark blue hair and purple eyes. She wears a red bow when not performing Prism Shows, when performing Prism Shows, her bow changes into a white bow. When she was young, her bow color was purple.
Role in the PlotEditChae Kyoung appeared suddenly, riding a giant robot made of gold. She was later introduced as the newest member of the Korean Abroad group, PURETTY. When Ayami was assigned to be the leader of the next Prism Show, Chae Kyoung helped her gain back her confidence by going out to play with her, going shopping and to a magic show, where Ayami used her memo pad to help Chae Kyoung get out of the lion's cage. Chae Kyoung told Ayami she thought Ayami's memo-taking was super "celebrity". This gave Ayami the confidence she needed to participate in the Prism Show with her own idea.
When Yun-su and Shou face off to design outfits for Prizmmy☆, PURETTY, and Aira, the other members of PURETTY revealed that the reason that Chae Kyoung was so close to Yun-su is because Yun-su is her elder brother. She participated in the fashion show wearing her brother's outfit.
Fixing a Flaw and the DebutEdit
Chae Kyoung, who learned about PURETTY's main flaw along with the other members at the training camp, was pretty sad about it. She told Ayami as Prizmmy☆ left for the Stand Up Girls Cup, "Kwenchana~", trying to keep at least a little positive, although her face showed otherwise. Soon after this, during one of Prizmmy☆'s Prism Shows, she was invited along with the other members of her group to debut as Prism Stars, as the group PURETTY (they were not named before this point). Her brother Yun-su designed the outfits they wore on stage. Chae Kyoung commented on the feeling of singing and dancing on stage as "Super celebrity!" She was congratulated after PURETTY's debut performance by Ayami, who she asked "Did you take a memo of that?"
