  1. [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.
  2. Girl Group GFRIEND break down the walls on the music charts. [OSEN = Sun Minkyung Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=109&aid=0003781802 GFRIEND, who got the first “Grand Slam” of 2018 by winning on all 6 music shows with their new song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is now attracting attention due to them rising on the music charts. As of 7pm on the 14th, GFRIEND’s ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is ranking at the top of the music charts with 1st place on Bugs Music and Naver Music, as well as 2nd place on Genie, Monkey 3, Mnet, Olleh Music and MelOn. In particular, ‘Time for the Moon Night’ gets hot responses online every time a music show stage is released, directly correlating with the steady rise on music charts. In addition, on Korea's biggest streaming platform MelOn, they have broken down the walls of those who have maintained their top spots such as Twice, ‘High School Rapper 2’, Melomance, and Ikon, attracting peoples’ attention and changing the landscape of the charts. 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. GFRIEND showed their strength with musical like choreography which also tells a story, as well as having shining visuals like a star. ‘Time for the Moon Night’ is a song with beautiful lyrics and describes the girls becoming more sentimental at night. GFRIEND show a wide spectrum of appearances, from being emotional but not sad, a girl who’s full of worries, to even just a girl who’s feeling cute. GFRIEND will continue their activities for their new song ‘Time for the Moon Night’.
  3. GFRIEND showed off why they're called ‘GodFRIEND’. [Sports Chosun Cho Yoosun Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=076&aid=0003250708 MBC Everyone’s ‘Weekly Idol’ was broadcasted on the night of the 2nd featuring the return of GFRIEND with their new song ‘Time for the Moon Night’. 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. I was really impressed when I saw them dancing, even when the song was going faster and slower, they looked so natural ㅋㅋㅋㅋ And I feel like they practiced really hard because it looked like they were so relaxed when they did the 2x speed dance!
  4. 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.
  5. Group GFRIEND’s teaser for their new song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ was released. [Sports Chosun Jung Yuna Reporter] Source: http://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=076&aid=0003246380 GFRIEND released the teaser for their 6th mini album ‘Time for the Moon Night’ music video teaser at midnight on their official SNS accounts and raised expectations for the comeback. In the released video, there was a change of times leading from the day into the deep night with GFRIEND appearing along the way. The scenes of GFRIEND’s natural surroundings were drawn against the background of a fresh Spring day, capturing the attention of the public. From SinB waiting for someone in the sunset, lovely Umji playing with a paper plane against the blue sky, Yuju climbing a mountain while holding a vase, Eunha who is lost in thought and staring at a fish tank, Yerin who is also lost in thought in a room by herself, to Sowon staring back behind the gleaming night view, the curiosity is raised even more for the music video. 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. The title song ‘Night’ is about a girl’s’ emotional night shown through beautiful lyrics that tell a story from dawn. As described by the album name ‘Time for the Moon Night’ means it’s time for the moon night, time to look at the moon, and time to look at loved ones. GFRIEND’s sense of emotion implies that it’s a time to become sincere. Meanwhile, GFRIEND will release their 6th mini album and title song ‘Time for the Moon Night’ on the 30th.

  11. GFRIEND's Big Reveal Sowon: Eunha doesn't like to wash her hair. Reporter: Chen Yalan Source: https://www.nownews.com/news/20180228/2708307 South Korean girl group GFRIEND held a concert at Xinzhuang Gymnasium today (28th). Taipei is the first stop of their Asia Tour with 4600 fans attending in total. The 6 members were touched when they heard that it was raining heavily outside, and thanked Buddies (fan club) for still waiting and supporting them. Umji said "At first we were worried and nervous, but after we heard the fans’ screams, we became energised, and we'll will be working hard to put on a good performance." For Eunha, Yerin, Sowon, SinB, Umji and Yuju, it was their 4th time coming to Taiwan but their 1st time singing at Xinzhuang. They started off wearing a black outfit, showing off their long legs. After singing the 2nd song, colourful ribbons were shot out, causing the atmosphere to be as high as ever. They introduced themselves in Chinese and thanked everyone for coming. They said that they were nervous but as soon as they saw the fans, the nervousness went away. They also felt that having the first leg of the Asia Tour in Taiwan was meaningful, and that they were so happy that they were going to cry. After 4 songs, they changed into Snow White looking outfits, rose onto the stage, and sang <Summer Rain> and <Mermaid>. The fans on the first level then raised banner slogans which surprised them but didn’t realise that the second level had a surprise as well. Near the end of the concert, they went to the extended part of the stage and saw the words 「GFRIEND loves Buddy」. Eunha said that when she saw the white papers, she was curious but wasn’t expecting such as surprise. Sowon then said that making phrases with paper with so many people would’ve required very good coordination and said the fans were cute. Other members exclaimed 「Just as the banner says, let’s love each other forever!」which caused all fans to scream in excitement. At the concert today, they sang their hottest hits and played some special clips, where Sowon revealed that Eunha sometimes gets cheeky when she talks and that Eunha doesn’t like to wash her hair, causing great laughter.

According to broadcasting company affiliates, GFRIEND has confirmed their host appearance on the September 9th episode of tvN's 'SNL Korea' and have begun preparations for the recording. GFRIEND is a group who debuted in 2015, gaining popularity for their unique 'Power Innocence' concept that separates them from other girlgroups. GFRIEND is unique for their addition of powerful choreography on top of innocent looks. They successfully promoted 'Me Gustas Tu,' 'Rough,' 'Navillera,' as well as the title song 'Love Whisper' from their most recent Mini Album 'PARALLEL,' proving worthy of their title 'GodFRIEND' and standing out as an unrivalled girlgroup. Questions have begun forming concerning the meeting between the 'Power Innocent' GFRIEND and SNL's way of revealing the hosts' uncharacteristic personalities. 'SNL' has recently transitioned into a pre-recorded system, gaining popularity with their more reliable and perfected segments.

  22. [OSEN=Sun Mi-kyeong Reporter] Girlgroup GFRIEND is showing their potential as the 'trendy' girlgroup. They are more noticed for their consistent improvements and this time, they climbed up consistently, one step at a time. This is why GFRIEND's true worth is a long-lasting charm. GFRIEND was a team who especially stood out among other fellow groups in their rookie class. This was due to the well-structured concept known as 'Power Innocence,' and the power of well-made production that drove the team's success. Of the groups that were born from small and medium sized agencies, there is a reason why GFRIEND and BTS represent their respective genders when talking about the power of content. The power of content shown by GFRIEND just has so much influence. Making their mark in the music industry with 'Power Innocence,' GFRIEND is writing a tale of 6 continuous hit songs. They started to gain popularity with the debut song 'Glass Bead' and consistently improved with 'Me Gustas Tu,' 'Rough,' 'Navillera,' 'Fingertip,' and the recently released 'Love Whisper.' They were loved beyond simply winning 1st place on music shows and were constantly put under the spotlight with each debut, recording accomplishments each time. This consistency is the true potential and worth that GFRIEND has. It's not about rising to the top of the real-time music charts just to fall back down again, it's about maintaining a high rank in the charts for a long time, and presenting a case for the long-run. And this power of long-run is continuing with every comeback. This is how girlgroup GFRIEND was able to become a significant member of the music industry, and their true worth was sprout from their well-structured content. 'Love Whisper' is no different. Even while starting a new saga after the School Trilogy, GFRIEND was able to keep their unique identities. The well-structured storytelling done through lyrics gives listeners something to look forward to after 'Love Whisper,' and they were able to successfully bring out the unique atmosphere to target the interests of teenage girls. GFRIEND created a new identity called 'PowerUp Innocence,' continuing their unique worldview. This is another reason GFRIEND is able to continuously have success. With this comeback, GFRIEND not only won 1st place in music charts, but they are continuing their long-run streak and recorded over 30k in initial album sales to beat out their previous records. Moreover, GFRIEND has 4 first place wins so far in music shows, and it's meaningful to mention that GFRIEND was able to win in KBS 2TV's 'Music Bank' and SBS's 'Inkigayo' over a boygroup with massive fandom size. It's yet again another proof of the influence that GFRIEND has. GFRIEND seems to always be able to consistently and fully utilize their true worths as ever. It's more the reason to anticipate for their new stories to be unfolded in the future. /seon@osen.co.kr Source: Naver TVEntertainment Comments: + 266, - 10 Thanks for always providing us with easy to listen songs, so that we are able to listen to it for a long time~ GFRIEND fighting~♥♥ + 237, - 8 I hope Yeochinnies can keep this up and successfully conclude the remainder of the promotions. + 242, - 10 They always have a good feel.

  23. Girlgroup GFriend emphasized their sisterly love. GFriend held "Navillera" Comeback Showcase broadcasted via Naver V-App on the afternoon of July 11, 2016. That day Umji stated, "The rumors saying that me and SinB have bad relationship are NOT TRUE." Also "We are very close to each other, we just don't show it that much. We never badly thought of each other. I think people misunderstood it. If you see those (rumors), don't feel so bad, just laugh at it." And she said with a bright smile, "All of us members are very close to each other." Source: GFriend SinB & Umji "We Are On Good Terms ..

Please stop with the bad comments. Think about this, what if you are in their position? ************************************************************************************************** Translator's Note: During GFriend's Album Showcase, they addressed the rumors regarding Umji &amp; SinB's relationship with each other. The rumors flying around say that SinB and Umji are in bad terms and the they are spreading that the members, specially SinB, are bullying Umji, even if those aren't true. The rumors stresses one of Umji' confession on one of the episodes (Episode 4) on MBC Music's One Fine Day wherein she said that she was not close with SinB "at first". Umji confessed that during her trainee days, she was worried that the long time trainees might detest her for coming last in the group. Upon saying "long time trainees" SinB reacted "Why? Why are you like this .. I don't hate you." Umji continues that she really is "thankful to all the members". SinB continued the conversation saying that she is "sorry to Umji and to be honest..." Then Eunha joked "You've hated her?" causing all of them to laugh. SinB continued, "I really don't like her when she first came in because I already started my entertainment career since when I was young. And when Umji came in, a friend with no experience, I was like 'ah, okay let's see how good she is'." "But it's not right to do that actually." "I usually speak without much feeling, but I think back then, I would speak to Umji two times more cold than usual." If we are to read until this part it would really seem like she really hated Umji. But SinB explained further, "But that was resolved after entering the dorm. Since then, I decided to treat Umji even better." Umji continued the conversation, "Although we're of the same age but because of greatly different backgrounds our friendship will be even deeper in the future instead. Honestly, we're friends and of the same age. Because of that, it makes her (SinB) an even larger source of support for me. I have many things to thank SinB for. We play together like sisters and you've (SinB) become my friend in this team as well. I'm really thankful. And when I have problems, she's always giving me tips from the sidelines" being overwhelmed with emotions that lead her to tear. She also called SinB a "Tsundere". A term that originated from anime which means that the "characters are usually cold on the outside but sometimes show their warm sides to those who are close to them". Here's the video of that conversation (the vid was set to start at 38:40 for Umji and SinB's confession) Please visit my blog: GFriend Trans

GFRIEND is finishing up their 'FINGERTIP' promotions this week. So today's commute to 'Music Bank' will be their last broadcast. Maybe that was why? Maknae SinB seemed to be noticeably drenched in sentiments. Even her outfit was a beige trench coat and a striped man-to-man top. Along with her long brown hair, SinB's mood was 'Spring' itself. GFRIEND SinB 'The sunlight seems to be especially good for our last broadcast' GFRIEND SinB 'Although chilling winds may blow, the spring scent does not fade away' SinB leaves for the rehearsal after the photos and after giving her 'Last Broadcast' greetings. SinB seems to be fully enjoying the Spring, when an envelope is spotted in her hands. Medicine bag? Did she perhaps catch a cold? Ah, it was a letter from a fan.
