In addition, there was huge interest in GFRIEND from Japanese teenage girls, and as expected, GFRIEND attracted even more attention by communicating in Japanese to the local fans. On the same day, ‘Kizuna Festival’ also officially announced Umji as ‘POPTEEN’s’ exclusive model. After Umji becoming ‘POPTEEN’s’ exclusive model was announced, she was trending in portal site ‘Yahoo Japan’s’ real time search, becoming a hot topic even before debuting.
