During the interview segment, Yuju introduced herself and explained how she became a fan of Wheesung. She said, "When I was younger, I was a student who didn't watch a lot of TV or computer. But one day, I turned the TV on by chance and saw Wheensung sunbaenim performing 'Insomnia'. At the time, it had a huge impact on me because I didn't know you could make a song based on the idea of insomnia and the song was stuck in my head all day. Since then, I've been a fan." After the interview, the two moved on to sing Wheesung's "With Me" and "I Even Thought of Marriage" that excited everyone in the studio. The audience gravitated towards the whole performance and was completely engaged in the amazing collaboration. Check out the clips! Source (1)

  20. Courtesy Photo GFriend, "Summer Rain" As Hurricanes sweep their way across North America, monsoon season is well underway on the Korean peninsula, and GFriend’s “Summer Rain” is here to greet them all. The new song, released on Wednesday (Sept. 13) blends new jack swing with the K-pop girl group’s representative twinkling synths to create a throwback track fit for the season. One of their most mellow songs to date, "Summer Rain" samples instrumentals from Robert Schumann's “Robert Schumann, Dichterliebe Op. 48:1,” interlacing them with propulsive beats. The track is GFriend’s third single of the year, coming weeks after their release of "Love Whisper" in August. “Summer Rain” is the lead song off of Rainbow, the group’s extended release of their 5th EP, Parallel, also released in August. The new song's sweet summery vibe comes as no surprise from the act. While in the States for KCON 2017 NY, bandleader Sowon confirmed to Billboard that the group would like to continue matching their songs to the feeling of the time of year that they're released in. Seasonally-inspired songs are popular in South Korea, where several tracks reappear on music charts each year in correlation with the change of weather. The single was released with an accompanying music video featuring the six members of GFriend reflecting as rain falls around them. The group offers up their emblematic ballet-esque dances, as the sextet join together for fluttering choreography. Draped in virginal white during the dance breaks, the costuming returns GFriend to a softer, more flirty school uniform look that offers up a maturing of some of their earlier style choices. Since starting out in 2015, GFriend has proven a force to be reckoned with, and have seen much success on Billboard charts. They currently have two tracks in the top 30 of the Billboard Twitter Top Tracks chart and four albums in the top 10 of the World Albums chart. Watch the music video for “Summer Rain” here: Source (1)
  21. On the September 20 episode of “Weekly Idol,” GFRIEND took on their biggest challenge yet with the newly minted segment “2x Random Play Dance.” The girl group is known on “Weekly Idol” for being masters of both dancing twice the speed and Random Play Dance. The MCs told them that they would be the first to attempt to combine the segments and that “it was a segment only GFRIEND could do.” Nonetheless, Jung Hyung Don was so confident that they couldn’t do it perfectly in one try that he offered to buy them an entire-body massage chair with his own money if they succeeded. However, GFRIEND proved that they’re made of seriously tough stuff, as they blitzed through “Summer Rain,” “Glass Bead,” “Love Whisper,” “Rough,” and “Me Gustas Tu” flawlessly. It never took the girls more than a line or two to get into position and they remembered the choreography for each song, no matter how long ago or complicated the dance. In the end, SinB faltered slightly when it came to “Fingertip,” which prompted Jung Hyung Don to get down on his knees and thank her for saving his wallet. Watch the amazing performance below!
