Her childhood dream was to be a diplomat! I definitely can see her being the peacemaker of the group.

Hmm.. I find it quite strange.. 
"She got scouted by Source Music when she was eating with APRIL Hyunjoo"
but aren't APRIL debuted months later than Gfriend?
Gfriend debuted on January 15, 2015 while APRIL debuted on August 24, 2015.
