  2. [Xportsnews Park So-hyun Reporter] From 'Love Whisper' to 'Summer Rain.' GFRIEND is 'working hard.' After coming back on the 13th with their first repackage album 'RAINBOW,' GFRIEND has reached 1st place in music charts and have been receiving lots of love. In a recent meeting with Xportsnews, GFRIEND shared their reactions to the recent car accident: "We were shocked at the time, but we are thankful that nobody was seriously hurt and so we can shrug the incident off as it definitely could have been worse." Following the release of 'Summer Rain,' the song rose to 1st place in various music charts. It's a fitting result for the 'Digital Queens' GFRIEND, but they were simply amazed. GFRIEND members emphasized: "We are very thankful. Since this was our first time making a speedy comeback, we had lots of concerns. But thanks to the love we immediately received, we are able to start off the promotions on a positive note." Alongside 'Summer Rain,' 'Rainbow' also made a surprise appearance on the music charts, receiving positive reactions. GFRIEND is well aware of these reactions. GFRIEND members say they often browse comments to monitor reactions. They smiled: "We appreciate everyone's positive comments towards the song. There are lots of listeners who like our side track 'Rainbow' as well." 'Power Innocence' was GFRIEND's unique trademark. It characterized GFRIEND with innocent, but powerful choreographies. This time, they are putting forward 'Innocent Emotions.' GFRIEND defined this promotion as 'PowerUp Innocence.' They then explained: "We added more emotions and focused more on elements like 'dance lines' rather than power to emphasize our unique emotional and innocent characters. Then they added: "It's an extension of the storytelling done in 'Love Whisper.'" They also note to watch for the choreography as the dance moves have been tailored to the lyrics of the song. Umji's more mature atmosphere also received lots of interest during the teaser reveal for 'Summer Rain.' To this, Umji shyly answered: "I think it's because our fans gave us lots of love, so I was able to think more positive and more happy - and it showed." Yerin supported her by stating: "Umji is more charming the more you look at her." "I do think that my face is showing more maturity than before. I've been trying various hair parting and eyebrow shapes that suit me well and when I find them, my weaknesses get covered up and so that helps," added Umji. 'Summer Rain' is planned to be promoted for roughly 2 weeks. GFRIEND members welcomed the interaction with fans, saying: "This year, we wanted to spend lots of time with our fans. Our favourite part is being able to consecutively meet with fans in new and better looks following a month of 'Love Whisper' promotions." They expressed their love for fans, commenting: "It's great to have the opportunity to continuously communicate with our fans." Another one of their goals is to host a concert. All of the GFRIEND members openly expressed their interest in a concert. They stated: "We really want to host one. We'd sometimes visualize the scene on our own, brainstorming things we would like to try when we get the opportunity for a concert. We'd love to meet our fans in a concert by next year at the latest." In the meantime, GFRIEND is planned to actively promote on music shows such as the September 15th episode of 'Music Bank' on KBS 2TV. sohyunpark@xportsnews.com /Photo = Source Music Comments: + 126, - 15 Listening to Summer Rain, I felt that the members are able to effectively express and communicate the emotions embedded in the song. They are good at singing not only because they don't make mistakes on stage, but because their vocals have improved in these areas since debut. + 96, - 14 GFRIEND Summer Rain is so good and I'd love to meet other Buddies at a GFRIEND concert~♡ + 75, - 9 GFRIEND fighting + 78, - 11 GFRIEND fighting! + 81, - 13 I'm definitely going to the concert if there is one!!

  3. [OSEN=Seon Mi-kyung Reporter] Why did girlgroup GFRIEND come back with 'Summer Rain' in early autumn. GFRIEND focused on innocence this time. Alongside their usual well-structured performances, GFRIEND is emphasizing more of the other emotions this time, drawing out their new legacy. It's an innocent yet sentimental song, fitting for the early autumn season. GFRIEND released their first ever repackage album 'RAINBOW' on the 13th, kicking off their promotions with the title song 'Summer Rain.' If they lit up the summer with the PowerUp Innocence 'Love Whisper,' they are now targeting autumn emotions with 'Summer Rain,' focusing on innocent emotions. They have been having continued success, following 'Love Whisper.' GFRIEND met with OSEN to share their feelings about receiving positive public reactions after making a speedy comeback. Umji thanked the fans, saying: "We promoted with 'Love Whisper' and then immediately came back with 'Summer Rain.' Both songs have been receiving lots of love and interest, so we thought we should work hard during this promotion, using the love we received as a motivator." Sowon then added: "'Summer Rain' wasn't a new song we received, we actually had the song for a while. It was originally intended to be used as a repackage title song ever since then. It was a song with the title spot in mind, and we thought it was very title-like as well." By looking at the song name, listeners may think that GFRIEND's new song 'Summer Rain' is a song composed for summer. No doubt it's a good song to listen in the summer, but its autumn emotions go well with the recent cool weather. More importantly, focusing on the lyrics while listening will help the listeners understand the name 'Summer Rain.' Yuju explained: "I saw comments saying: 'Why is the song name 'Summer Rain' when it's autumn?' It's because this song's setting is set in autumn, reminiscing of the past summer. There are many reactions questioning the choice of the season purely based on the song name, but it's actually such a perfect name. All of the lyrics in the chorus are in past tense. We hope that listeners can listen carefully to the lyrics as well." "Like the pouring Summer Rain, Perhaps everyone had love that abruptly came to them" "So much that they couldn't sleep to the sound of rain, You were like that to me" "Our days were brightly shining, I was thankful, like the clear Summer Rain" "It was so beautiful, like a single ray of rain, Our transparent story" Sowon added: "I think the lyrics of 'Summer Rain' is something that many can relate to. This time we came back with 'Innocent Emotions,' slightly toning down our 'Power' and upgrading our 'Innocence' and 'Emotions.' The supplementary song 'Rainbow' is another song cherished by GFRIEND. Members shared an episode, stating: "Just like how the rainbow shines after the rain stops, the song contains messages about how there will always be a light at the end of the tunnel. We received the guide version for 'Rainbow' in a foreign language. It had a much different feel compared to the current version. Because of the rock genre, it felt a bit too powerful, but now we think that it's a side track that fits well in this album." From 'Power Innocence' to 'PowerUp Innocence,' and then to 'Innocent Emotions,' GFRIEND is continuing to expand their variations in style. They are steadily establishing their unique nostalgic and sentimental worldview, while continuing their storytelling with new variations. More the reason to look forward to the next chapter of their story. /seon@osen.co.kr [Photo] Source Music Comments: + 91, - 7 Thank you always for the pretty articles~ GFRIEND Summer Rain fighting~♥♥♥ + 74, - 5 Summer Rain is so good~ It's like I get into a sentimental mood whenever I listen to it..

  7. So I wanted to post some tutorials for BUDDY so we'll be able to support GFriend during their comeback.

  8. 🎶 Album Introduction GFRIEND to come back on August 1st! The return of SummerFRIEND! GFRIEND, to release The 5th Mini Album [PARALLEL]! GFRIEND's 3rd summer, 'Love Whisper' Succeeding 'Me Gustas Tu' and 'Navillera,' GFRIEND to once again shine in the summer GFRIEND will be coming back with the release of The 5th Mini Album 'PARALLEL.' GFRIEND, successfully diversified their concepts and presented the story of a confident girl's love with 'FINGERTIP' last March. This time, they will be hunting for the public crowd's summers with 'Love Whisper,' a song that has a sentimental vibe with a hot summery feel. GFRIEND will be heading into their 3rd summer since debut. They have a history of having great synergy with summer, acquiring the title 'Power Innocence' during summer with their unique healthy and refreshing charms, along with GFRIEND's signature powerful knife-like choreography. It is expected that GFRIEND will once again renew their incredible synergy for the upcoming summer season. It is especially important to note that both of GFRIEND's previous summer songs made a huge splash, with 'Me Gustas Tu' being the first girlgroup song to pass the 100 million streaming count milestone, and with GFRIEND winning 14 music show trophies with 'Navillera.' As a result, all eyes are on GFRIEND for their next edition of the summer songs. Since their debut, GFRIEND has been presenting the story of the six girls' growths, successfully drawing public empathy towards them. They were able to rise to the spot of Korea's Favourite Girlgroup thanks to the growth story, setting an example for other girlgroups to follow. This album title 'PARALLEL' compares the fond feelings of unrequited love to a parallel line, the faith to meet again one day, and contains GFRIEND's unique story and narrative. Furthermore, starting with the 'Love Whisper' promotions in August, GFRIEND will spin off from 'FINGERTIP' and begin a new series that will showcase their unique stories. Starting with the title song 'Love Whisper' that encompasses the narrative of GFRIEND, 'Ave Maria,' a nostalgic 90's style song 'One-Half,' and exciting dance song 'Life Is A Party,' a song based on Shibuya-kei 'Red Umbrella,' and another fan song for Buddies 'Falling Asleep Again' are contained in the album. The album consists of many colourful tracks that go well with summer, and is expected to entertain the ears of global music fans. < Album Review > 1.

  17. When do you guys think Gfriend will come back with another album? My bet is in June/July because they've recently dyed their hairs back to original-ish colours except Umji and they've always had a summer comeback in the past 2 years Anywayss <3 I'm excited for what Gfriend has to offer in their new comeback! FIGHTING BUDDIES! FIGHTING GFRIEND!
  18. [MyDaily = Lee Seung-Rok Reporter] Girlgroup GFRIEND (Sowon Yerin Eunha Yuju SinB Umji) revealed their thoughts regarding the comeback.GFRIEND held a combined interview at a café in Seoul Seongdong-Gu on the 7th, in celebration of the new album 'THE AWAKENING'.During the interview, GFRIEND stated that even though they may be getting more popular, "We won't lose the way we were at the very beginning" and "We are still thankful for everything, even the smallest things."Specifically, Yuju let out tears - "It's emotional" - while reminiscing of the day GFRIEND went through the 'falling incident'. Yuju then added "To be honest, how painful can falling down really be," which set off the tears of other members such as Sowon and Umji.The new album's title song is 'FINGERTIP', which showcases the dramatic change in GFRIEND. Thanks to the catchy chorus of "Tang-tang-tang FINGERTIP!", the song is receiving lots of love since its release on the 6th. Below is the Q&A. - Thoughts on achieving #1 on music charts with the new song?Sowon: "Preparing for this album was half worry, half excitement. It's because there were lots of changes in our concept. Fortunately, many people showed interest ever since the teaser release, and this was the first time we appeared on the real-time search rankings during the teaser phase. I wasn't able to sleep very well worrying, but all of the public interest is gave me energy for me to work hard and start promoting."- Thoughts while you were checking the music charts?Umji: "This time, our goal - while it would be nice to have a good record - is to receive positive feedback from the public such as 'Ah, they can excel with this kind of concept too' because we had a concept change. And so I didn't bother paying too much attention to the charts." - What was the reason for the concept change?SinB: "Me and Umji became adults following graduation, and there was a change of concept to match that. I think the timing was pretty good as we needed a concept change after our 'School Trilogy.'"- Do you like the new concept?SinB: "We took off our school uniforms to be able to demonstrate a variety of looks, and I really like how we were able to change into a chic style."Sowon: "Just because we changed, it doesn't necessarily imply 'we are no longer young girls'. There is a lot we can show, and we wanted to show everything. During the earlier stages of debut, I once said 'I would like to try whatever fits us at that moment', and I would like to try this and that. Perhaps we can go back to our innocence, and have variety like that."Yerin: "Like a chameleon?"(laughs) - The changes are?Yuju: "From the outfits to hairstyles, they all changed. Originally, our concept was to not dye our hairs, but we went through a dramatic change. As for our outfits, we changed from school uniforms to military uniforms."- Any point dances?SinB: "'Tang-tang-tang' We paid a lot of attention to detail in firing the gun. We even considered the recoil."Sowon: "Our CEO-nim sent us a photo of a real soldier and asked us to pay attention to how we see, like such."- Aren't there reactions with the 'unfamiliarity' of the change?Sowon: "We are actually looking forward to this. A verse from our lyrics I like is 'I was already prepared'. If we had a concept that didn't match us, we wouldn't have came back with the concept. I'm not sure how others might perceive us, but we came back because we were prepared. I'm thinking when we have our first comeback stage, more people will like us. So we are greatly anticipating for the first music show. Between us, we're excited. Despite the said reactions, we don't even have regrets such as 'Oh no, should we return to our roots'. Instead, we are thinking 'Okay, let's just be even more awesome'.- Did you gain confidence?Sowon: "When we received the guide for the song, we were 50/50 on it. However, all of our members got assurance when we filmed our choreography scene in the M/V. The atmosphere was amazing, and we thought 'Ah, we need to go on a music show.'"Yerin: "That was the first time wearing our outfits, after weeks of wearing practice outfits in our practice room. The members were like, quite amazing." - Everyone is in their 20's now, and so what path do you think GFRIEND will be walking on from now on?Sowon: "It's not like we were set on going forward with the 'School Trilogy' ever since debuting with 'Glass Bead'. We just performed songs that fit us the best at that moment, and there were lots of other song candidates while preparing for 'FINGERTIP'. I think the song quality and the seasonality are also aspects we can't leave out. I expect us to be coming back with songs that are most appropriate for the corresponding season."- Aren't there lots of reactions praising Umji's beauty?Umji: "I think becoming 20 years old and growing up a bit gave me a little bit of that mature beauty I didn't have before. I'm really happy thanks to everyone telling me that I fit well." (laughs)- Who became the prettiest since 'Glass Bead'?Members: "Definitely Eunha. The bobbed-hair was a godsend. She also lost lots of her baby fat. Her pretty face features are now well revealed." Eunha: "(laughs) I feel blessed thanks to everyone complimenting me with my beauty. I'm happy because everyone had an unified opinion of me."Sowon: "We're not saying you're the prettiest of us 6, it's that you improved the most."Yerin: "I hope Eunha keeps her bobbed-hair for 3 years." - Confident on the music show rankings?Sowon: "It would be great if we could achieve a great record, but more so I would like to hear 'Ah they can digest that concept without feeling out of place'. I take a look at a lot of comments, but the reactions still seem 50/50 for now. Our goal is to perform on a music show and hear 'They're good, blended in very well'. Rather than our report card, we are focusing more on those aspects. - You are often picked as the Top 2 girlgroups with Twice. You will now be promoting at the same time, how do you feel?Yerin: "I've known friends in Twice since a long time ago. I was wondering when we would be promoting at the same time, and we happen to have overlapping schedules this week. We'll be meeting them in broadcasting stations. Twice's song is good and their choreography seems nice too.Sowon: "We are good friends with Twice. We also KakaoTalk each other a lot. The reason we got close was because we wrote 'We want to be friends'. While doing the collaboration stages, there were members of the same age and so I was able to get closer to them. When each other's teasers get revealed, we always support each other, take capture photos and cheer each other on, encouraging: 'The song is so good, we saw the M/V'. We are good colleagues. - Any chance you'll be returning to innocence?Umji: "Of course!"Sowon: "If we get an opportunity to come back in the Spring, we'll probably consider it. And I think all of us look innocent." - Some fans are concerned that you might gain too much ego because you got so popular, so quickly.Umji: "We still take capture photos of each other when we rise in the search lists. We are still amazed at even the littlest things. We talk about the words we shared during our trainee days. The love we are receiving right now shouldn't be taken for granted, and that every bit of it is precious. We will always be active without losing our original hearts and intentions."Sowon: "I still can't believe that we are receiving so much love. Because our agency isn't a big one, we weren't expecting this much attention towards us. At this point we rose on the real-time search rankings even with teasers, but we still feel like trainees when we aren't actively promoting. We don't even know how to decorate ourselves. We had our photos taken once while walking around nearby streets with weird visuals. Yerin got a photo taken wearing slippers, training uniform and hoodie. We were told 'don't do that,' but we really just don't care too much. We don't wear masks or hats just because we became a celebrity. We still feel too much like trainees."Yerin: "Every bit is precious, and we are aware that none of what we have came by easily. So we won't be able to forget that." - Some say you gained popularity off of the 'falling incident'?Sowon: "Actually it's also thanks to Yerin doing well on 'Running Man' prior to that. For sure, more of the public heard of us thanks to the 'falling incident', but hearing about how that incident "saved our lives" is a little upsetting.Umji: "We are famous for the 'Falling FanCam', but I think we received lots of support not because we fell, but because we got up again and and finished the stage. Words like 'Lucky you fell' upset us. We think the love we received was thanks to us getting up and finishing the stage despite falling multiple times." Yuju: "It's pretty emotional. To be honest, how painful can falling down really be." (Yuju, who fell the most during the 'falling incident' showed tears while reminiscing of the day, and members also let out tears seeing Yuju.)Eunha: "I'm thankful for Yuju getting up and still trying her best despite falling, it gets me emotional." Yuju: "The falling itself isn't really painful. My thought is that getting up was definitely the right thing to do. When people compliment me for that, I wonder if I even deserve that praise anymore. I try to never forget my attitude from that day. It's an unforgettable stage." - Goals for this promotion and final statements?Umji: "I'd like to be able to promote healthy and not get hurt. Personally, I'd like everyone to watch our stages and be overwhelmed with emotions." Sowon: "We came back after having our longest break yet. Although there may be a new chance, we also worked very hard for this comeback so I hope lots of people will support us for our upcoming promotions."[Photo = MyDaily Photo DB](Lee Seung-Rok Reporter : roku@mydaily.co.kr) Interview Source: Naver TVEntertainment Article Translated by Albatro
