They ran for too long. Without even having the time to peek elsewhere, they only looked afar. As a result, they began to get injured and riddled by sicknesses one by one. Their souls are tired with the exhausted stamina. Sufficient break is absolutely necessary at this point.
Girlgroup GFRIEND (Sowon Yerin Eunha Yuju SinB Umji) whom have been following a busy schedule, ended their official promotions last August with 'NAVILLERA', entering a break period till the year end.
On the 4th, their agency announced: "There is no plan for a new album, and we're just taking care of the schedules that were previously planned, enabling the members to get as much rest as possible."
They then added: "While she was taking part in a performance schedule, SinB was moved to the hospital after collapsing on the stage with sudden dizziness. But fortunately no significant conditions were discovered and she recovered to normal health."
And another member Umji had to stop her activities after being diagnosed the Sartorius Strain in the beginning of the previous month. With GFRIEND's busy schedule, more and more fans are getting concerned for GFRIEND's health. Despite this, GFRIEND kept on moving as a group of 5, carrying out foreign recordings as well as event appearances, to follow their schedule.
GFRIEND made their debut last January with 'Glass Bead', then released their 3 'School Trilogy' tracks within a year starting at July of last year, establishing themselves as the top girlgroup in Korea.
Characterized by their 'Power Innocence', GFRIEND powered through all of the music shows with 'Me Gustas Tu', followed by 'Rough' and 'NAVILLERA', and ended up setting a grand feat of '29 Trophies'.
The 'falling' incident that happened on one of the broadcasting station's stages at Gangwon-do last September became viral throughout the world at the time, making it a thankful memory that created GFRIEND as we know now.
The agency announced: "We worked really hard till now, such as by preparing for succeeding albums as we carried out our TV appearances. I often hear that the fans who love GFRIEND have lots of concerns for them, and we plan on letting them take a sufficient break, then take part in year-end awards ceremonies, and we think we'll officially meet the fans again with a new album early next year."
