  1. GFRIEND is multi-coloured, We want to become 'SummerFRIEND' with 'Sunny Summer'. [Herald POP = Go Seungah Reporter] Source: https://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=112&aid=0003051937& The season of summer is inseparable with the group GFRIEND. From 2015 onwards, they’ve comeback with many songs in the summer including ‘Navillera’, ‘Love Whisper’, and ‘Me Gustas Tu’. This year, GFRIEND are also presenting a summer mini album called ‘Sunny Summer’, which fits summer perfectly. Especially, they have transformed into a “Powerful Refreshing” GFRIEND adding the essence of summer to their unique concept of ‘Powerful Innocence’. Before their comeback, GFRIEND was interviewed at a cafe in Seongsu-dong, Seongdong-gu, Seoul on the 17th, returning within 3 months after ‘Time for the Moon Night’. “I think GFRIEND is a group with different colours. In our previous song, we showed a song that was ‘Passionate Sentimental’ which was loved by a lot of people. This time, we wanted to show people our bright songs.” (Umji) “We’re making a comeback in the summer, and it’s nice to see everyone so soon. I hope that many people will listen to the song and be cheered up.” (SinB) This album is a summer mini album, so it was filled with songs full of summer feels. Starting with the title song ‘Sunny Summer’, which has a somewhat tropical vibe, ‘Sweety’ is about a fresh first love, ‘Windy Windy’ is a song about a summer night filled with exciting feelings, ‘Vacation’ has exciting brass, and ‘Love in The Air’ is a SynthPop song. Umji confidently said, “We’re releasing a summer mini album with a title song called ‘Sunny Summer’. We’re definitely aiming for the summer. Haha. I hope it’s the first song you can think of when it comes to summer. Since the songs were made to target summer, I think you’ll be able to enjoy it. Maybe now in summer, GFRIEND will come to everyone’s mind first.” The title song is called ‘Sunny Summer’. It is a cool pop dance song featuring a summery atmosphere with the lively cuteness of GFRIEND and an addictive chorus. It is a cool pop dance song that mixes refreshing vocals with funky rhythms. Especially this time, they worked with hit song maker Duble Sidekick. Yuju said, “We made this song with Duble Sidekick. We put a lot of focus into the lyrics. We even put our names into the lyrics of ‘Sunny Summer’. It was easier to memorise with our names in it. (Laughs). I changed the part (would you be my~) to ‘Yuju be my’ but it sounded awkward.” Umji also said, “I think we can show GFRIEND’s youthful and refreshing appearance. In particular, I think this performance has the easiest choreography and anyone can follow. I think many of you will be energised by it. As we’re coming back in summer, I made a big change in my style. Yerin pointed to her shortened bangs and said, “I challenged choppy bangs!” “I’ve never cut it short before, and I think it's a concept that goes well with the summer sun. The bangs are beautiful, aren't they?" Eunha also challenged with a bold hair colour, “One of my life goals was to try out highlighted hair colours, and wanted to do a cool blue colour for this album. It somehow turned green, but I’m still happy and satisfied with it”. GFRIEND who made their debut with ‘Glass Bead’ in January 2015 has just arrived in their 4th year of debut. It was not a group that people first noticed. Rather, they caught attention with a fancam of them performing ‘Me Gustas Tu’ and succeeded in going viral and doing a reverse trend. After that, the continued actives by continuous releasing ‘Rough’, ‘Navillera’, ‘FINGERTIP’, ‘Love Whisper’, and ‘Summer Rain’. In May, they made their official debut in Japan and made them even more popular. Asked on whether it was difficult to do that ’10 day’ trip, Umji paused for a moment and said, ‘Doesn’t everyone get tired of their jobs at some moment? If we said we didn’t have times when we were tired, that’d be a lie. However, I always encourage the members so I don’t get tired my self and also heals me. “As we’ve said over and over again, we have a group of fans who are very supportive of us. I want to be a better person. I want to be physically and mentally healthy.” “We usually make comebacks in the summer, but this time we got more greedy with the nickname ‘SummerFRIEND’. This album has several summer vacation songs. So we hope we can be an entertainer that people want go on a vacation with together." GFRIEND will be releasing their summer mini album ‘Sunny Summer’ at 6pm on the 19th and do full-scale promotions with their title song ‘Sunny Summer’. A more powerful GFRIEND is expected to return to us as ‘SummerFRIEND’ this summer.

  7. In their 4th year of debut, the group GFRIEND’s 2018 can be described with the words “changing” and “leaping”. They are making attempts to become a long running group and are achieving meaningful results. [Sports Seoul - Lee Jiseok Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=468&aid=0000398064 GFRIEND’s first official activity this year was their first solo concert at Olympic Hall in Seoul Olympic Park which went for two days from January 6th - 7th. Starting from Taiwan in February, they have begun their Asia Tour which’ll be in Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan. The tour will conclude with the Encore concert at SK Olympic handball Gymnasium on September 8 ~ 9. Becoming a “concert-dol” is necessary to become a long running group, and GFRIEND have placed this as an important emphasis for this year. GFRIEND who are in their 4th year of debut this year made a major change in their music this year. The 6th mini album title song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ was released in April, and is a co-creation with external composer Lee Wonjung and Noh Juhwan, the in house producer of the songwriter’s music company, and not Iggy, Youngbae. Iggy, Youngbae have made hit song after hit song starting from their debut song ‘Glass Bead’ in 2015 to ‘Me Gustas Tu’, ‘Rough’, ‘Navillera’, ‘Fingertip’, and ‘Love Whisper’, all of which were made by that composition team. If GFRIEND has laid down the foundation for growth, the in house producer will have no choice but to start worrying more about GFRIEND’s future and have plans to manage intensively. In addition, before the promotions started, GFRIEND had decided to make new changes by reshuffling several staff members including stylists. With a more emotional and mature look compared to their usual ‘Power Innocence’, the song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ topped Korea’s biggest music site MelOn after 17 days, and was received well as it won 10 times on music shows. GFRIEND who also released their official debut “best album” in Japan last May continued their active promotions, which was also well received as their 2x speed dance performance gained unexpected popularity. GFRIEND will also run the strategy of ‘separately and together’, which intends to show the charms of each member to the public. The lead vocalist of the team Yuju announced her first single album, signalling her as a female vocalist An official from the agency said, “GFRIEND who are in their fourth year of debut are making various attempts to renew themselves through various changes. They will try to be a group that can be in it for the long run.” Comments: +67, -3 They're doing well now, but it's good to change and challenge yourself for growth.

They received attention with every song they released and cruised their way into becoming a popular girl group. They have reached their peak. And now they take on a new challenge in Japan. GFRIEND finished their flourishing promotions with their song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ which was released in April. GFRIEND who has always run with the ‘Power Innocence’ concept since debut changed it up with ‘Time for the Moon Night’ and strengthened their lyricism. GFRIEND’s ‘Time for the Moon Night’ which as met with their unique energy, earned them 10 wins. GFRIEND’s total number of wins so far sits at 47 so far. Not only that, GFRIEND’s ‘Time for the Moon Night’ showed resilience on the music charts as promotions went underway. Compared to when the song was immediately released, their rank has risen. It claimed MelOn chart’s top spot 17 days after it’s release. Off the back of their success with ‘Time for the Moon Night’, they got on a plane to Japan on the morning of the 22nd. Their debut album that they’re promoting, which will be released on the 23rd, is called ‘今日から私たちは~ GFRIEND 1st BEST’. GFRIEND already had pre-promotion schedules back in March. They held a press conference and a premium showcase at the Shinjuku Alta Theatre in Japan and officially made their entry into the Japanese market. At that time, GFRIEND said “We feel nervous and excited, just like when we made our debut in Korea 3 years ago. Now that we’ve got a new challenge, we will do our best and strive until the day we perform at the Dome.” For Kpop singers, the Japanese market is considered one of the areas that they all want to challenge after they’ve debuted. In particular, a Dome Tour starting from Tokyo Dome, is a target for many singers. TVXQ, Big Bang, Girls’ Generation, EXO, Shinee etc. have all had Dome Tours. As a result of their seniors, GFRIEND is expected to follow their success.
  11. [OSEN = Sun Minkyung Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=109&aid=0003785842 Girl group GFRIEND was successful one again. Their solid growth was proven through the ‘Power of a Good Song’. It was GFRIEND that reversed back in top 1st place on the charts, and achieved 10 music show wins. GFRIEND added another trophy for 1st place for ‘Time for the Moon Night’ on SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’ on the afternoon of the 20th. GFRIEND got 10 wins on music shows alone with ‘Time for the Moon Night’. GFRIEND started off from the 9th on cable channel SBS MTV’s ‘The Show’, MBC Music’s ‘Show! Champion’, Mnet’s ‘MCountdown’, KBS 2TV’s ‘Music Bank’, and MBC’s Show! Music Core. They were the first ones this year to achieve a music show Grand Slam. GFRIEND expressed their heartfelt feelings with OSEN this afternoon, and said they were grateful to for fans’ love towards ‘Time for the Moon Night’. GFRIEND said that they showed good results on music show performances and the music charts. On their thoughts, they said: “We had a longer than usual hiatus compared to previous promotions so we were very nervous and were preparing very hard. We’re so grateful and happy that we’ve received so much love.” ‘Time for the Moon Night’ has a special meaning for GFRIEND. This time, they weren’t working with Iggy, Youngbae who have been with the since debut, but instead partnered up with Noh Joohwan. It was with ‘Time for the Moon Night’ that earned them the #1 spot on MelOn, Korea’s largest music streaming platform, due to it’s addictiveness. It was a meaningful achievement with their new partner. GFRIEND gave their thoughts on why ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is so popular: “‘Time for the Moon Night’ seems like a song that can touch your heart and make you feel something when you listen to it. Everyone has different emotions but they like ‘Time for the Moon Night’, so I think many people who’ve listened to it have felt something at least once.” They also cheekily added “If you haven’t felt anything yet, please listen to it one more time.” “Through this promotion, we wanted to broaden the team’s musical and stage spectrum. It’s pretty meaningful since it this was realised a bit. And in the future, GFRIEND will have the strength to come up with even more courageous challenges”, they said as they expressed their pride of succeeding this promotion. Above all, GFRIEND wasn’t only proud of ‘Time for the Moon Night’, but also of their elements of performance which attracted great attention. GFRIEND were loved for their “Power Innocence”, where a powerful performance was added to a innocent girls’ emotions, but they completely threw that away and showed a new concept of “Passionate Sentimental” which is a combination of emotion and fierce performances. GFRIEND said “We’re proud of the love received for ‘Time for the Moon Night’, but even more so for the great interest people showed for our performances. Most of all, we’re proud of everyone saying that they’re looking forward to GFRIEND as a team in the future.” GFRIEND finished their ‘Time for the Moon Night’ activities today and are preparing for Japanese promotions. They will debut in Japan, proving the strength of Kpop girl groups once again. They finished off with “Unfortuantely that was our last broadcast #Buddy #TFTMN10thWin We will never forget the precious memories with Buddies during this promotion. We’ll keep the memories of today secretly in our room tonight. We won’t meet as often now, but we still love you.” Top Comments: +143, -10 GodFRIEND who reversed on the charts and got 10 wins on music shows, winning 100% of the ones they were nominated in, and now they're off to Japan! Good work, and I hope you develop into an even better GFRIEND in the future! +69, -7 Their songs are always good, but this was is REALLY good~ +82, -34 GFRIEND is now an artist that transcends the limits of an idol. Since IU and girl group SNSD, this is the first time I've felt that they're not an idol but really an artist. The sincerity of their music. Not just simple dance moves with a hook song, but real music. When I look at the album, even the B-sides are all title song class. I personally want to award "Album of the Year" to GFRIEND after looking at all the releases so far in 2018, without looking at the sale amounts

Falling Incident → Power Innocence → Reversal… Keywords Relating to GFRIEND [XSportsNews Jung Won Reporter] Sources: http://news.naver.com/main/read.nhn?mode=LSD&mid=sec&sid1=106&oid=311&aid=0000856351 <Editors Note> Time Warp is a corner of XSports News that shows news from past to present. From rookies until now, we go back into the time machine to see the stars that we didn't know about in the past. GFRIEND who’s currently reversing, shall we reverse GFRIEND back? To congratulate ‘Time for the Moon Night’ topping the charts, let’s reverse back and take a look at GFRIEND’s history! GFRIEND who debuted in January 2015, was sensational due to their team name. It meant they are a loving girlfriend for men, and for women, someone who wants to be a good friend of theirs who can open up to everything. In fact, for the male fans, they were lovely girls and the female fans, they were girls whom they wanted to be friends with. GFRIEND’s debut title song was ‘Glass Bead’, it reminded people of SNSD’s debut. It was clean and lovely, but the performance was intense and fancy. GFRIEND was in the spotlight for being in the ‘Post SNSD’ era However, it was with their 2nd album title song ‘Me Gustas Tu’ which brought GFRIEND into stardom. Not only did they show the concept of “Power Innocence”, but especially the ‘Falling Incident’ video which went viral and exploded on internet community sites and SNS, with a down pour of cheering and consolation fro everyone. Even when I watch the video now, it’s still amazing T_T In the midst of their new spotlight, ‘Rough’ finally came out in January 2016. It was a song that showed off the cheerfulness and charms of GFRIEND. With that song, they were able to become a ‘Mainstream Girl Group’ winning 15 times on music shows. In particular, the uniform concept that the male fans liked the most caught a lot of eyes. Building up on that success, their song ‘Navillera’ won 14 times on music shows and solidified them as a Top Girl Group. Of course, there was a time when they slowed down. The 4th mini album ‘FINGERTIP’ released in March was a strange and awkward look to fans who were familiar with GFRIEND’s “Power Innocence” image. Although it was a meaningful transformation and a good attempt, GFRIEND lost their own colour. One day, let’s look forward to seeing GFRIEND chic and intense girl crush stage again! After a bitter taste, GFRIEND returned to their original form with ‘Love Whisper’ in summer. It was a promotion with their healthy and refreshing charms along with their trademark knife-like choreography. Recently, they drove their momentum by releasing their 6th mini album which has been highly praised. The title song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ was quiet after it’s release, but was able to rise on the charts as time went by to top the Korean charts 17 days after its release. Once again, they’ve set a new record of reversing. It was a combination of good music and high quality stages creating a great synergy. Now, GFRIEND will go to Japan. Their debut album ‘今日から私たちは~ GFRIEND 1st BEST’ will be released on the 23rd. Let’s wait and see if GFRIEND who is about to make their official debut in Japan, can spread their “Power Innocence” fever throughout Japan

[OSEN = Sun Minkyung Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=109&aid=0003783708 As girl group GFRIEND is leading their chart reversal, they have started to solidify themselves to be there for the ‘long run’. It is a demonstration of the formula that “Good songs work”, showing the strength of GFRIEND, which is an example that has been an inspiration to the pop industry that has recently been troubled with controversy over chart manipulation/sajaegi (bulk buying) scandals. GFRIEND is in for the long run with their 6th mini album’s title song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ which was released on the 30th of last month. It has not only won 7 music shows, but has also topped the music charts. This is a meaningful upward trend and has moved to the top of the charts in a reverse direction. GFRIEND’s song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is 1st at 2PM KST on May 17th on the Mnet, Naver Music and Bugs Music Charts. It is also 2nd on MelOn, Korea’s largest music streaming platform, as well as being 3rd on Soribada and Monkey3. GFRIEND is going for longevity on the music charts. They also achieved the first music show grand slam of the year. # Believe and Listen in GFRIEND The wins for ‘Time for the Moon Night’ are meaningful achievements to GFRIEND in many ways. Of course, GFRIEND has recorded good sales steadily before, but in the case of ‘Time for the Moon Night’, it was done with a new composer, Noh Joohwan, instead of Iggy, Youngbae who they’ve been in harmony with since debut. This was a new challenge for GFRIEND. It seems that GFRIEND’s challenge has paid off successfully. This can be interpreted as a belief in GFRIEND’s music that has been steadily built up over the years. GFRIEND has recorded successive hits from their debut song ‘Glass Bead’ to ‘Me Gustas Tu’, ‘Rough’, ‘Fingertip’ and ‘Love Whisper’. # A Good Song Works The rise of GFRIEND proves that the formula “good songs work” is true. The music charts have been stirred up by controversy over alleged sajaegi of Nilo’s songs before GFRIEND’s comeback. In addition to Nilo, GFRIEND topped the charts, breaking strongpoints on the charts which were held by Twice, cable channel Mnet’s ‘High School Rapper 2’ and Melomance. The combination of addictive music and the concept is said to be the driving force. GFRIEND has added a solid story to their concepts, making the music sound richer. ‘Time for the Moon Night’ was actually placed at 8th on MelOn at the time of release and has dropped out of the top 10 rankings, but the ranking has now risen vertically after promotions. The more we listen, the more addictive the music gets. # ‘Passionate Sentimental’ + Perfectly Synchronised Choreography The strong performances of GFRIEND was also a driving force behind their reversal. GFRIEND’s concept of ‘Power Innocence’ with a sentimental girls’ music and powerful choreography has added fun. The pure and lyrical music of the girls sensibility was their identity, adding to their uniqueness with their power choreography, this was the reason why they were so successful among many innocent girl groups. Following from their previous concept of ‘Power Innocence’, GFRIEND have now established their identity with the concept of ‘Passionate Sentimental’. The passionate performances have added to the delicate and innocent sensibility of a girl. This concept was a success because the performance matched harmoniously with the music and was like a musical. It was a combination of music and performance which GFRIEND does best. In fact, since the stage of ‘Time for the Moon Night’ was released on music shows, the ranking has increased steadily on the charts. It was a significant reversal that was achieved in harmony with 3 parts: good music, trust through steady appeal, and a choreography that tells a story.

GFRIEND’s driving force to attracting the fans’ hearts was to have a concept which involved blending in 3 parts, having an addictive, harmonious, and ‘Passionate Sentimental’ song.

On this day, GFRIEND unveiled the performance of ‘Time for the Moon Night’ for the first time. While being nervous about the first reveal, they still showed their confidence. Sowon said: “If the song wasn’t good, I would’ve changed it.” Yerin then replied: “I won’t make a comeback (if the song wasn’t good).” After that, GFRIEND’s performance was revealed. With the killing point ‘Moon’ dance, the MCs were stunned by the soft yet powerful and addictive chorus. SinB also showed her passion when she threw her shoes off during the performance. Lee Sangmin said: “Back in the day, one way of predicting if a ballad song was good or not was to see whether it made you cry, and for dance songs, if you got goosebumps 3 times throughout the song. But for GFRIEND’s song, I got goosebumps the whole time.” GFRIEND who are also known to be the originators of the 2x speed dance also challenged it again today with their song ‘Time for the Moon Night’, showing why they’re called ‘GodFRIEND’ with their knife-like choreography. They also challenged the ‘Rollercoaster dance’ where the song rotates between being 2x faster and 2x slower. GFRIEND were the first ones to succeed the Rollercoaster dance with steady dancing even when the speeds shifted, and as a result won a massage chair. In the ‘A Resume I Wrote’ corner, the members showed off their skills. Yerin who wrote down her special skill as ‘Applying screen protectors’, received a certificate after skilfully applying a plastic flim in the studio. In addition, SinB revealed that she had longer than normal toes. The crew prepared a game where she had to grab items with her toes. SinB seemed to be flustered at the sudden mission but soon got all the items out with her unbelievable footwork. GFRIEND also won a number of prizes in the “Al-Song-Dal-Song Quiz’ and displayed great variety sense by being so successful at it. Top Comments +798, -119 I really like this song, I really don't understand the charts.. +229, -35 GFRIEND really is great ㅋㅋㅋ All the members are so charming +200, -12 The more I listen to this song, the better it gets +158, -12 Really, how much does GFRIEND practice, they're so amazing!!! +46, -3 GFRIEND were so fun today.

  16. Reporter - Lee Ji Suk Source: http://www.sportsseoul.com/news/read/625313 There’s one name that goes along with girl group GFRIEND (Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB, Umji). And that is ‘Iggy, Youngbae’. Together, these 2 are the ones that composed all the hits for GFRIEND. In fact, they are the biggest contributors to GFRIEND becoming a top girl group. But a time of change has arrived. For the first time since their debut, they’ve left the shadows of ‘Iggy, Youngbae’ and are now standing alone. GFRIEND started with the debut song ‘Glass Bead’, and from ‘Me Gustas Tu’, ‘Rough’, ‘Fingertip’, ‘Love Whisper’, to ‘Summer Rain’, they became a national girl group. All these songs are by composer and producers ‘Iggy and Youngbae’. GFRIEND weren’t the only ones that benefited from Iggy and Youngbae. Thanks to the popularity of GFRIEND, they became top producers in Korea and created a ‘win-win’ situation. GFRIEND has tried to make significant changes in their new mini album ‘ Time for the Moon Night’. The title song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is not the work of Iggy, Youngbae but rather co-created by Noh Joohwan, the House Producer of their company Source Music, and external composer Lee Wonjong. A Source Music official said "The new title song 'Time for the Moon Night' is a piece that will feel different to their previous ones while keeping GFRIEND's unique colour. Since their debut in 2015, they’ve made a big impact on the music industry. They became a good example of a ‘rags to riches group’ after overcoming the worst conditions and not being from a major company. They have been winning with the ‘Power Innocence’ concept. However, the fact that changes have been made to the producers in their 4th year of debut, it seems they’ve felt that there was a need to change. Having fully entrusted their in house composer to the title track is evidence that they are seriously considering the direction of change in GFRIEND’s future and the extent of maintaining their identity. Iggy, Youngbae are external producers who have to work with other teams other than GFRIEND, making it impossible for them to solely focus on them. Another significant change is that GFRIEND who have always been active in Summer and Winter will be having their first comeback in Spring since their debut. GFRIEND, who present their songs through unique storytelling, is expected to catch the listeners ears with the new song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ and show the emotions of a spring night. Additionally, GFRIEND is scheduled to release their 6th mini album ‘Time for the Moon Night’ at 6pm on the 30th and start full scale promotions.

In particular, the intro song ‘DAYTIME’ that accompanied the video felt like time was passing by, leading into the title song ‘Night’ (Korean name), further heightening expectations of the song. GFRIEND is getting hot responses as they’re releasing content in sequence day by day, getting fans to have high expectations when their 6th mini album ‘Time for the Moon Night’ releases on the 30th.
