  1. It’s been 3 years that we are together with GFriend. To commemorate the most important and meaningful day, GFSquad.com is back to gave a beautiful presentation to everyone. First, let’s watch the 3rd Anniversary video. We hope Buddies will like it! 3 years of hard work, friendship and amazing journey. This video represents the very memorable scenes of moments being together with Buddies. As continuation from the 2nd Anniversary, which almost best and beautiful scenes are summarized, now this is a new chapter which focused on their beautiful relationship. This is a review that will show the details of each stories. The Action Intro: GFRIEND BEST STAGES The Intro represents like a movie trailer. An action trailer where all of GFriend’s best stages are included and compiled. Those scenes were the most amazing and beautiful. These stages came from different shows such as major awards in Korea, Concert festivals and Showcases. Beautiful stages that made Buddies even more proud when watching their amazing and mind blowing performance. We definitely loved it! The Beautiful Eras : Season Of GFRIEND The beautiful eras represents each seasons of GFriend. 6 seasons of music videos including Glass Bead, Me Gustas Tu, Rough, Navillera, Fingertip, Love Whisper and Summer Rain. Each part contains the most beautiful scenes where it shows strong bond of friendship and being together for a long time. Since these scenes summarizes all moments in the field of working as an artists. It is a representation of a story and concepts within just the music videos. The Youthful Climax : The Real Colors Of GFRIEND The climax part represents the real themselves. Revealing their personalities, relationship, bond and friendship. It is more focused in behind the scenes. Showing their youthful moments not just as group, but also as a family. Every people who will watch it, will definitely more in loved with GFRIEND Another fact. Yuju recommended a song for the members to listen is Troye Sivan's, 'Youth' song that was discussed during radio broadcast. The song and Its lyrics is definitely great and related to them. You can read the lyrics of 'Youth' by Troye Sivan here They are like young kids who likes to play always. They are full of innocence and very energetic. Trying new things. Experiencing extreme adventures. They are brave enough to show they are strong kids. On the last part, a transition of last stage from their first ever concert into predebut days.. It’s time to reminisce everything back from the start. Special memories are captured like the format of VHS tape. Let’s Reminisce: Memorable Pre-debut days Rain In The Spring Time as the background song (piano cover version). To give emotional feels that will touch everyone heart, It’s the sequences from their past days. Training, Pre-debut even the most memorable days such as anniversaries, celebrations into the present day. The Ending: Our Successful Journey The climax chorus part represents the glory days of their journey. As the part of the song says “Will you be with me forever?” together with the voice announcing them as the ‘Best Girl Group’ (GFriend’s award during 2018 Golden Disk Award), it indicates their success being together as a group with Buddies. In 3 years, many challenges came through. Their journey has been very successful. As a fan who will always stay for them, let’s be together and keep supporting them in our way we can. Let’s keep our relationship with GFRIEND forever, Buddy.
  2. Hey buddies! MRJKPOP does amazing and thorough reviews on KPOP songs. He gives a lot of insight and I think you'd enjoy what he has to say!
  3. So as you know Gfriend is back after a long and "Rough" promotion period, with their first studio album titled L.O.L. So wanted to give a personal opinion on what i felt about the individual songs and the album as a whole. Im not gonna review the intro and instrumentals of course. This is my first written review of a album or music in my life hehe, but ill try to go as in depth as i can and as my knowlegde posesses, so bear with me cause this will be a long review. #LOL. I might do an review of the other albums later, maybe il even do a album review of an other artist/group in the "other topics" section of the forums for fun, we will see. 1. Fall in Love: (6.5/10) First i feel this song was probably not the best to start off the album with maybe it should be in the middle somewhere, as it may be abit slow to start off, but overall a decent song. Dont have alot to say about it as it wasnt alot of interesting things going on in the song itself it had the repeated line of "uri duri" but didnt find it very catchy like nav-nav-navillera. 2. Navillera (8/10) Now ive rated this one based on the choreo, music video and song itself so keep that in mind. First of all its a nice song with good vocals and has catchiness to it. Some standard Gfriend elements thrown into it soundwise with a retro synth to keep it fresh and true to the concept. It does sound abit like an upbeat version of Rough which i think was the intention of the composers Iggy and Seo, to maybe put the final touch of the era. Now the music video i found cute and they look pretty here, but it wasnt as asthetically pleasing as MGT and Rough for me, and maybe the biggest letdown was the lack of choreo/or brief scenes of dancing in the MV.. The dance break felt way to short and abit edited out or not focused on much which was a letdown. The choreography is still difficult but not as techinal or complex as previous ones. I did not find the point choreo (except the intro which was cool) as interesting as Rough which had the clock move, ballet spin, formations etc, and didnt felt as expressive as before though it tried. But atleast the dance fits the song and the x2 version was fire ;). 3. LOL (7.5/10) Except for the cool but short retro beat it felt abit like fall in love not very interesting, but liked it tiny bit better. Glad they are using the guitar riffs more in their b-songs, the lyrics was pretty nice too. 4. Distance (8.5/10) Definately an odd duck for Gfriend as they try the reggae genre for the first time. They did a good job with it overall and the song is one of the strongest entries on this album in my eyes. It has a pretty catchy beat with sweet singing and a harmonica which was a strong touch to a chill song, best to listen to for relaxation on a hot summer day, or maybe spring? 5. Water Flower (8.5/10) For me this song screams old school anime to me haha. I enjoyed the tempo and beat with rock elements and the Anime ost feel. This track just wants you to jam along with it and overall alot of fun to listen too. 6. Mermaid (7/10) Though it has some similar lyrics with Rough it has a different vibe. Not really a ballad kind of guy, but i liked the emotional tone and lyrics. 7. Sunshine(5.5/10) This time a R&B ballad. Again not fond of the genre so dont have much to say, it does sound abit generic and didnt really hit me emotionally 8. Compass (7.5/10) Now onto the now abit "controversial" track as some angry fx fans has gathered around and disliked the song on youtube and called it a plagiarism of the song Airplane on Fx album Pink Tape. First of all ive listened to it and it maybe has some feel of it since its both in the house genre but the beat and songs are different so i disagree on that part. Agree to disagree i guess. Ok the review of the song: After two emotional slow jams, this song brings back a dance worthy house genre style with a catchy beat but its not much more to it, outside of the beat the song is pretty standard layed out. but it was a good "wake up" song again after mermaid and sunshine. 9. Click (7/10) This song was strange for me. At first i liked the nostalgic feel back to the old 90s american pop music and it started kinda hype, but the verses more spesifically their voices was pretty offputting to me. I dont know if the composer/recorder of this song put a pitcher or some sort of autotone but their voices wierded me out abit. The song has some spice girls feel too it. Might edit the review of this track later as i havnt formed an absolute opinion yet. 10. Gone With The Wind (9.5/10) For me probably the best and most title track worthy song on the album, enjoyed this one alot. Loved the diversity and mixed genre styles all in one, Umji vocals really shines through in this song too and delivers the best singing lines in my opinion. After watching it live i have to give a big + to the choreo as it was excellent. It start with a intro similar to SNSD Gee, into a more Gfriend style sound verse, into a anime-like and catchy chorus before it transitions into a dance break changing style to EDM with abit of dubstep sound which is a cool touch and adds flavor to the song, then it goes back to the catchy anime-like sound again until Yuju pleasantly belt outs high note after high note before the song ends off with some smooth guitar stuff and wraps up the album nicely like a gift. Definately a strong finish to a solid album. Overall Verdict 8/10 Final Thoughts: Overall this album has a more J-pop and anime feel to it than before while experimenting with new genres. Its good that the album has this certain feel since they are planning to make a debut in Japan later this year so giving this kinda vibe off will appeal well with the Japanese buddies and to new people unfamiliar with their past works and it will help smooth their transition over there, also with the addition with eng and Japanese subs on their main channel just proves Source Music yet again knows what theyre doing in terms of marketing the girls and appeal to a broader audience. Im glad they are experimenting with new genres and that leaves abit more to be desired in the future comebacks. As of the title track choice they played it pretty safe this time aswell giving a similar trademark style, if it were up to me i would put GWTW as the title for track just to show off the new genre experimenting theyve been trying out. I also think its a better song and choreo than navillera but Navillera is still a safe and good choice as people are familiar with it and it will do well on chart, music awards and with the Korean fans especially. So yeah this album is for sure a step in the right direction for Gfriend and its going to be exciting to see what they have to offer in the future aswell. So this review kinda run long so il cut it here for now i might edit some things later as i wrote this in one go and my opinions might change later, and please do shower me with feedback and criticism if you have, as i want to improve in future reviews. If its something you found unfair, off, wrong or grammatically wrong with this review please contact me and we can discuss, so thank you for reading and have a nice day!
