Perfect All Kill, a condition when a song topped all chart possible in South Korea.

A "Perfect all kill" 

when you have number 1's on every chart. It's a really big accomplishment :)

I call myself Gfriend trash. Facebook posts mostly all Gfriend, facebook profile video and cover photo Gfriend, twitter mostly Gfriend, an instagram account to talk about Gfriend, cos-play them, and a tattoo (real) from one of the parts of My Buddy. I was told yesterday that I was major GFriend trashlncavanaugh1994:umjilove:

Best birthday present ever is what these girls gave me. Being sang to, hugged, a photo with just me and them and how Yerin and Sowon were so focused on me not crying. I truly cannot say anything bad about them. I am forever a buddy with a part of My Buddy tattooed on my body

Almost every morning I listened to their song, and when I checked Melon Chart, MGT is always there! along with Rough and of course, Navillera :D

I wish they continued success in the future :)
