My memories are popping up in my head .. Anyways Buddy, fighting for today ㅎㅎㅎㅎ Title: You are the Leader As the leader for Source Music's rookie girlgroup, we hope you will be able to display exemplary behaviour for the members you'll be with, work hard to make the team be appreciative, patient, and caring, and always strive towards building better teamwork.

  2. [OSEN=Sun Mi-kyeong Reporter] Girlgroup GFRIEND is showing their potential as the 'trendy' girlgroup. They are more noticed for their consistent improvements and this time, they climbed up consistently, one step at a time. This is why GFRIEND's true worth is a long-lasting charm. GFRIEND was a team who especially stood out among other fellow groups in their rookie class. This was due to the well-structured concept known as 'Power Innocence,' and the power of well-made production that drove the team's success. Of the groups that were born from small and medium sized agencies, there is a reason why GFRIEND and BTS represent their respective genders when talking about the power of content. The power of content shown by GFRIEND just has so much influence. Making their mark in the music industry with 'Power Innocence,' GFRIEND is writing a tale of 6 continuous hit songs. They started to gain popularity with the debut song 'Glass Bead' and consistently improved with 'Me Gustas Tu,' 'Rough,' 'Navillera,' 'Fingertip,' and the recently released 'Love Whisper.' They were loved beyond simply winning 1st place on music shows and were constantly put under the spotlight with each debut, recording accomplishments each time. This consistency is the true potential and worth that GFRIEND has. It's not about rising to the top of the real-time music charts just to fall back down again, it's about maintaining a high rank in the charts for a long time, and presenting a case for the long-run. And this power of long-run is continuing with every comeback. This is how girlgroup GFRIEND was able to become a significant member of the music industry, and their true worth was sprout from their well-structured content. 'Love Whisper' is no different. Even while starting a new saga after the School Trilogy, GFRIEND was able to keep their unique identities. The well-structured storytelling done through lyrics gives listeners something to look forward to after 'Love Whisper,' and they were able to successfully bring out the unique atmosphere to target the interests of teenage girls. GFRIEND created a new identity called 'PowerUp Innocence,' continuing their unique worldview. This is another reason GFRIEND is able to continuously have success. With this comeback, GFRIEND not only won 1st place in music charts, but they are continuing their long-run streak and recorded over 30k in initial album sales to beat out their previous records. Moreover, GFRIEND has 4 first place wins so far in music shows, and it's meaningful to mention that GFRIEND was able to win in KBS 2TV's 'Music Bank' and SBS's 'Inkigayo' over a boygroup with massive fandom size. It's yet again another proof of the influence that GFRIEND has. GFRIEND seems to always be able to consistently and fully utilize their true worths as ever. It's more the reason to anticipate for their new stories to be unfolded in the future. /seon@osen.co.kr Source: Naver TVEntertainment Comments: + 266, - 10 Thanks for always providing us with easy to listen songs, so that we are able to listen to it for a long time~ GFRIEND fighting~♥♥ + 237, - 8 I hope Yeochinnies can keep this up and successfully conclude the remainder of the promotions. + 242, - 10 They always have a good feel.

Composed by No Joo-hwan, Lee Won-jong | Lyrics by Mafly Sowon | Yerin | Eunha | Yuju | SinB | Umji | Group Sowon & Yerin A night when even the lampposts slowly fall asleepThere is nothing to lean onAt day's end when even shadows are faintThat's when I met you My tired and exhausted whines You listened to all of my feelingsAnd watching you listening to me I can relax now Even after I blink my eyes Please stay next to me Because I like the shoulders you let me lean on You’re my everything You make me believe in myself, baby Thanks to your pats on my small back I can empty my mind and Fall Asleep Again In case you wake me up from my sleep I saw you holding your breath for meYour hands gently brush by This touch, I pretend to not noticeI open my eyes and close them I want to stay next to you for longer Even after I blink my eyes Please stay next to me Because I like the shoulders you let me lean on You’re my everything You make me believe in myself, Baby Thanks to your pats on my small back I can empty my mind and Fall Asleep Again For some reason, my mind keeps filling with worryI pray that you don't disappear Into a midsummer night's dreamI pray, for days to be like today Even if I fall in deep sleep Please stay next to me, forever Because I like your warm open arms so much You’re my everything I now have the entire universe With your warm breath, without wavering You soothed my heart, and I love you Metadata Source: NAVER Music Translated by Albatro
  4. [OSEN=Sun Mi-kyeong Reporter] GFRIEND's girl-like emotions, that addiction is charming. Girlgroup GFRIEND is the team that best represents girl-like emotions. If Twice is being loved by the general public for their youthful energy, GFRIEND is gaining popularity with their unique sentiments and their signature Power Innocence. It's also the power of GFRIEND's storytelling that began in the 'Glass Bead' era. GFRIEND especially goes well with girlishness. For sure, they have lots of variation within that concept, and they are breaking their limits with a variety of unique attempts. Also, the girl-like emotions that define GFRIEND's songs also have power in the sense that they are catchy. The success that GFRIEND's songs are having is also related to this. They are presenting their best stories with colourful concepts, backed up by the catchy music that is required for a 'long run.' This is why GFRIEND is referred to as 'GodFRIEND.' GFRIEND's story began with the School Trilogy. It was truly the peak of girl-like emotions. They were as familiar as our best friends around us, and that made their appearance much more charming. This is why GFRIEND's success is evaluated as 'The power of content.' On top of an innocent and pure rookie girlgroup image, GFRIEND added their unique worldview in Power Innocence and drew much of the public's attention. Under the concept known as Power Innocence, girl-like emotions suit them the best. It started with girls' desires to never shatter and light up the world, despite being Glass Beads. Then, they shyly yet confidently expressed their emotions. Next, they sang about their desperate wishes to be able to 'Run through time and become an adult.' That's how they grew up. From 'Glass Bead' to 'Me Gustas Tu,' and 'Rough,' GFRIEND's girl-like emotions were connected to form a story. They were able to specifically target girl fans' interests and were successful in doing so. As a result, girl-like charms became a part of GFRIEND's identity alongside Power Innocence. This was described as their unique 'uplifting emotions.' Having finished sidetracking with 'FINGERTIP,' GFRIEND is again back at the peak of girl-like emotions. 'Love Whisper' uses a slightly different atmosphere from the previous songs to bring out GFRIEND's girl-like emotions. It's a lyrical piece yet with power. They also grew again. From a confident girl's love story to a more calm mood, GFRIEND sings about their resolute faith. Another shot at the girl-like emotions. Bringing out the refreshing energy to match the summer season was also a perfect strategy. /seon@osen.co.kr Source: Naver TVEntertainment Comments: + 163, - 10 The song gets better the more I listen to it, infinitely charming GFRIEND fighting, fighting ♡♡♡ + 137, - 8 GFRIEND fighting!!

  5. 🎶 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.

The lyrics draw out the path of couples slowly resembling each other: copying each other's habits, facial expressions, behaviour, and speech, encouraging empathy and the nostalgic feeling of the 90's. The arrangement contains brass's half tempo and one tempo, and powerful yet innocent charms can be felt from the song thanks to the GFRIEND members' refreshing and lovely vocals. 5.

  13. GFRIEND, comeback confirmed for August 1st... To release Mini Album 'PARALLEL' Girl group GFRIEND has confirmed their comeback for August 1st. At 10AM of the 20th, GFRIEND's official SNS surprise revealed a comeback teaser image containing the 5th Mini Album's title 'PARALLEL' and the release date of August 1st, 6PM (KST). GFRIEND's comeback comes 5 months after their previous comeback, when they released The 4th Mini Album 'The Awakening' last March. It is especially important to note that GFRIEND will be heading for their 3rd summer since debut. GFRIEND has a history of having great synergy with summer, acquiring their 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 with the upcoming summer season. Moreover, with GFRIEND having a history of trending with 'Me Gustas Tu' from July 2015 and 'Navillera' from July 2016, a 2017 edition summer song from GFRIEND is to be anticipated. Since their debut, GFRIEND has been presenting the story of the six girls' growth, successfully drawing the public's empathy towards them. They were able to rise to the spot of Korea's Favourite Girlgroup thanks to their growth story. Starting with the debut song 'Glass Bead,' GFRIEND made splashes with their songs 'Me Gustas Tu,' 'Rough,' 'Navillera,' and 'Fingertip,' acquiring the title 'GodFRIEND' in the process. Many eyes from both within and beyond the music industry are on GFRIEND, in anticipation of the records they could set with the new Mini Album 'PARALLEL.' In the meantime, GFRIEND is preparing their final touches for their comeback, with the comeback date confirmed to be 6PM, August 1st (KST).

  15. Girlgroup GFriend emphasized their sisterly love. GFriend held "Navillera" Comeback Showcase broadcasted via Naver V-App on the afternoon of July 11, 2016. That day Umji stated, "The rumors saying that me and SinB have bad relationship are NOT TRUE." Also "We are very close to each other, we just don't show it that much. We never badly thought of each other. I think people misunderstood it. If you see those (rumors), don't feel so bad, just laugh at it." And she said with a bright smile, "All of us members are very close to each other." Source: GFriend SinB & Umji "We Are On Good Terms .. Those Are Just Rumors" Netizen Comments: +1188 -116 Umji seems to have very good personality +977 -151 Don't touch our Umji ㅡㅡ +649 -86 I have something to say to the kids: "What are you doing?"

What the heck is wrong with those people (T/N: referring to those spreading the rumors) Hwang Eunbi (SinB) Kim Yewon (Umji) please don't look at those bad articles instead look only on the good ones. +158 -26 Those people really don't get tired giving meaning to each of celebrities' facial expressions... +115 -17 I'm a fan of them yet I don't have any clue that such rumors exist hahahahah +97 -11 How could you live with someone you hate? Please stop with the bad comments. Think about this, what if you are in their position? ************************************************************************************************** Translator's Note: During GFriend's Album Showcase, they addressed the rumors regarding Umji &amp; SinB's relationship with each other. The rumors flying around say that SinB and Umji are in bad terms and the they are spreading that the members, specially SinB, are bullying Umji, even if those aren't true. The rumors stresses one of Umji' confession on one of the episodes (Episode 4) on MBC Music's One Fine Day wherein she said that she was not close with SinB "at first". Umji confessed that during her trainee days, she was worried that the long time trainees might detest her for coming last in the group. Upon saying "long time trainees" SinB reacted "Why? Why are you like this .. I don't hate you." Umji continues that she really is "thankful to all the members". SinB continued the conversation saying that she is "sorry to Umji and to be honest..." Then Eunha joked "You've hated her?" causing all of them to laugh. SinB continued, "I really don't like her when she first came in because I already started my entertainment career since when I was young. And when Umji came in, a friend with no experience, I was like 'ah, okay let's see how good she is'." "But it's not right to do that actually." "I usually speak without much feeling, but I think back then, I would speak to Umji two times more cold than usual." If we are to read until this part it would really seem like she really hated Umji. But SinB explained further, "But that was resolved after entering the dorm. Since then, I decided to treat Umji even better." Umji continued the conversation, "Although we're of the same age but because of greatly different backgrounds our friendship will be even deeper in the future instead. Honestly, we're friends and of the same age. Because of that, it makes her (SinB) an even larger source of support for me. I have many things to thank SinB for. We play together like sisters and you've (SinB) become my friend in this team as well. I'm really thankful. And when I have problems, she's always giving me tips from the sidelines" being overwhelmed with emotions that lead her to tear. She also called SinB a "Tsundere". A term that originated from anime which means that the "characters are usually cold on the outside but sometimes show their warm sides to those who are close to them". Here's the video of that conversation (the vid was set to start at 38:40 for Umji and SinB's confession) Please visit my blog: GFriend Trans
  16. Real GFRIEND #SinB Date: 160622 It was cute seeing you struggle with cutesy stuff. Do you think so? Haha. I think I've gotten better recently. Is it thanks to the children's program < Larva and Friends in My Embrace >? Correct. For one, I had to adjust to appeal to the correct audience, and following the lead of unnies and oppas made me more comfortable with that kind of stuff. I saw this on < One Fine Day >, but you had a lot of notebooks by your bed. What are those? A diary, books from fans, and language study books from my mom. I asked because it looked like the perfect place to keep a diary. My dad told me that if I wrote some entries to look back on it later on, I would like it in the future. What's the usual content? It's a secret. Haha. 'I performed poorly during our recording'. Then that's due to insufficient practice, so I record that. 'I made a mistake during the photoshoot.' Stuff like that. I write down anything from small events to bigger ones. The members say that you are like a fatherly figure. When others are around, you appear to not care, but take care of others behind the scenes. Perhaps it's because your personality doesn't like getting noticed or making a big deal out of things. So maybe that's why you don't like cutesy stuff either. But GFRIEND is 'girly'. Isn't it hard for you? I was once 'girly' too. Before, people kept telling me that I'm very masculine, so I thought so too. But now I'm starting to think that's not necessarily the case. It's starting to show as I promote with our members. Haha. GFRIEND is famous for being scarily in order with their choreography. Let me ask the dance representative. Is that possible through just practice? Practice is important, but we have to be in sync together. We can all proudly say that our teamwork is good. Even if we point out each other's mistakes during practice, we don't show negative feelings and accept the advices. And all of our members are very motivated, so they themselves ask around if they think that they made a mistake. Then let me ask it this way. How do you become good at dancing? I don't really know because I've been dancing since I was a kid. Maybe it's important to like dancing and put in the time and effort? GFRIEND's choreography didn't just end on stage. The dances you performed on variety shows went viral, with the 2x speed dance topping it off. What if they ask you to perform 4x speed dance for next comeback? We didn't really practice for it, but we managed to do the 2x speed dance. But we're more of the 'let's have fun' style, rather than a 'let's do more' style. What's the most important part when attempting GFRIEND's dances? You need power, but you need endurance even more. You'll feel it when you try it, but it's really exhausting. We're managing it because we've gotten used to it, but most people probably won't last two songs. You really do need lots of stamina. Work on stamina first before attempting them? Yeah, they would be perfect as diet dances. Haha. Isn't it difficult to keep a pretty face while performing powerful dances? Our fans say that it's too hard making GIFs because we move around so much. Haha. I didn't know this at first, but I've been learning the ropes. Be pretty when I'm on camera and powerful during the other parts! Also, I do like difficult things. Sorry? I like difficult tasks, which is another reason I like our team.

  17. Buddy~~ I wanted to say good night again after finishing the Omujigeum broadcast heh ㅋㅋㅋ I always feel sad about ending the broadcast, and today I stayed later to read more comments You know like how you feel sorry and sad about hanging up calls, I feel the same way every time I press the 'End Broadcast' button ㅠㅅㅠ But I'll try not to be too sad, And rather leave with a happy feeling of looking forward to the next broadcast with everyone who always watches my broadcasts, has a good time together, and empathizes with me. Thank you for always anticipating for me and giving me compliments. Really. Thanks to those compliments, I think I'm able to muster up my energy to prepare more entertaining episodes! We are up to episode 5, and just like how I have things that I want to talk about, if any of you have topics or stories you'd like to talk about together, I'd love to chat about them hehh... So if there are topics you'd like to chat about for the next broadcast, please do leave them in the comments Everyone have a good night '3' I'll upload a photo that I took after the broadcast eheheh Oh! I accidentally said we were leaving for Taiwan tomorrow, but we're not actually leaving tomorrow.. heh sorry... For real, have a good good night!! Bye!! Translated by Albatro, Yunaverse
  18. Real GFRIEND #Sowon Date: 160622 Isn't your self-introduction too simple compared to other idols? Well, giving ourselves a specific title sort of restricts us. We didn't want to have 'GFRIEND is this kind of team' set in stone. The simple self-introduction does seem to reflect GFRIEND's pure and clean energy. It's been one and a half year since your debut. Do you think you've lived up to your team name? We wanted to clearly present GFRIEND's unique identity, and I think we did manage to do a bit of that. You mean 'Power Innocence'? Yeah. When I hear "That sounds like GFRIEND's song," "That looks like GFRIEND's dance," or "Indeed, that's GFRIEND's Sowon," that's when I think to myself 'Ah, we did a good job expressing ourselves'. So the first three songs were part of the "School Trilogy." Then the song that's coming soon is probably the start of the next season. How do you think the next season will be? 'Rough' was a year-closing ceremony, not a graduation ceremony. I'm not saying our next album will be another schoolgirl concept, we want to present the colours that suit us the best at that moment. But we don't feel pressured to grow more mature with every new album. GFRIEND's strength is that they are so natural off-stage. It's because we're just such a bright bunch of kids. We feel like we're friends who met each other through school. However, there are times where we are too loud or too crazy, so we try not to cross the line when we're on TV. For example, you know how there is this one thing where everyone in a group makes an ugly face to make one person stand out? We're confident that we can do that really well. GFRIEND tends to not back out of anything, but you try to keep things in balance. I think so too. Haha. But I kinda want to fix that. You know how the camera closes in before going on stage? Then even as we're just playing around and all, I immediately put on my TV face and say "Hello everyone, we're currently here." As the leader, I feel like I have the responsibility to do that. GFRIEND doesn't have a 'Girl Crush' character, but I think you might be the most appropriate for that character. Me too. Haha. We have some members that can look cold. Like me or SinB, somewhat cold or proud. Maybe I should say we look like Seoul women? Haha. How do you think you'd look if you cut your hair? I don't really care. I want to try bobbed hair too, but I'm afraid I might look taller. Speaking of your height, your major was Model, right? Were you originally thinking of being a model? I have no relation to being a model. It's because I applied as a trainee. One time, I was scolded during our profile photo shoots for being inexperienced since the agency teaches us singing and dancing, but not posing or making facial expressions. There are many occasions I could use those skills, like today, but I don't have an opportunity to learn them. And so I thought I could learn everything I'd need as a singer if I applied to be a model. Did you get taught about being a leader from somewhere? I think my personality makes me a natural born leader. I tend to take charge wherever I go. When things aren't moving along fast, I get frustrated. Do you take pride in leading GFRIEND well thus far? I think there is synergy when each of us excel at what we do best. If one of us thinks we're doing well because of her, then turning solo is more appropriate. Wouldn't it be that since all of us lack in certain areas, we gathered together to form 'GFRIEND'? Source: GQ Korea Translated by Albatro
  19. Real GFRIEND #Yuju Date: 160622 When I think of GFRIEND's songs, I think of your vocalization. That's something I haven't heard before. Pretty unique. Perhaps it's because your voice is full of power? For instance, your parts in GFRIEND's songs stand out, and that feels like GFRIEND. Alternatively speaking, you have some sort of 'tension'. If you think about it, the other parts are pretty, comfortable, and natural. I think having to express a bright and healthy girl's image brings out the times I used to run around in the playground. I feel like my personality is also reflected in my singing. What personality do you have? At first glance, you seem quiet, but much different when someone approaches you. I heard that a lot when I was attending school. I don't appear very approachable at first glance, but then end up being the opposite of that once they get to know me. At times, I appear so desperate that others feel sorry for me. It's shown in the stepping stone game in < One Fine Day > and through running in < ISAC >. Maybe it's because I naturally like exercising? I feel very natural about that. I think varieties turn out better if I take a more relaxed approach to it. I believe you've participated in many singing competitions since you were young. I thought the sincerity and consistent desire to be a singer is now being reflected in your songs and TV appearances. I'd be hesitant to think that they had no impact. It's more so that I didn't want to waste my time rather than me liking challenges. That seems like where the 'tension' I talked about originated from. But it's also important to commit when I have to, and relax when necessary. I have to relax enough so that I can fully engage in whatever I do next. I'm more lenient with myself when I relax. Does that mean you sleep when you're tired, regardless of day or night? I'm not good at taking naps. When I spend time on my own in our car, that's when I freely do whatever I want to do. What kind of stuff do you do? I can't really dance in the car, nor sing because members are around, so I found that practicing facial expressions for music videos is the best. I put on my earbuds and practice reacting to each song, from cheerful songs to dark songs. I guess 'tension' could be explained like this. Something that shows when a prepared person presents themselves, versus someone who isn't prepared. I guess it has to be a good tension? Haha. Have you ever thought about why you fell the most during that stage? (The performance in the rain, surpassing over 10 million views on YouTube) We practiced the same way, and I thought I had a pretty good sense of balance. So I was kinda embarrassed. I guess my moves were just more extreme? That's right. It relates to the discussion we had today, about how you were working more than others. And that was shown once you encountered a bad situation. You were working more than others because you practiced so much. There is definitely something to be earned from practices. Even if I don't become better at singing or dancing through practicing, I always learn something that only I know while going through trial and error. Those are valuable to learn. Do you know how your eyes open wide on stage? Haha. Our fans talk about that a lot. Even that seems like you are showing your will. I think so too. It's not like my eyes appear pretty or something. I personally think that I'm trying to deliver some sort of message with my eyes even in the short moment I'm on camera. Source: GQ Korea Translated by Albatro
  20. Real GFRIEND #Yerin Date: 160622 Your laughing face left an impression on the public. Do you have tips for a pretty laugh? Well, I can't really laugh prettily. So I don't think so? Apparently I use the entirety of my face muscles to laugh. So there was a time where I had to think about how to show a pretty laugh. Was it because of the related search keyword 'Fake Laugh'? Yeah, you know, nobody checks their life on camera. Watching myself after debut, despite seeing myself laugh in funny moments, I questioned why I was laughing like that. I realized people could take them the wrong way. As emphasized as the laughing face is, your normal face is as calm as it could be. You have a clean visual, but you don't stay still for even a moment. There's just so much contrast. I'm naturally bad at staying still. I went to an English academy during high school, and my bum hurt after having sat down for so long. So I remember telling my mom that staying seated is too difficult. What do you do when you're in waiting rooms? I sleep. When I sit down, I usually sleep. I think you are becoming calmer as time passes. Well, I'm at that age where I want to look pretty. Haha. I'm getting more experienced at picking when to be funny and when to be pretty. I think your funny and extreme character you showed early on was what led GFRIEND. Thank you for interpreting my character that way. I think our members were sort of frozen in front of the cameras back then. Now, they're hilarious. But you were okay? I wasn't camera shy. I just had fun on camera, and people liked it. Yeah, I really do think you weren't camera shy, seeing how comfortable you were with making eye contact. With my personality, I'm not so good at making eye contact. I'm doing it on purpose to fix that. I used to pass by people without even saying hello because I had a hard time making eye contact. But then at one point I thought, 'what if that person thinks I don't like him/her?' and ever since then, I try my best to make eye contact although it's difficult to do so. You are good at laughing, competitive by nature, and full of energy, but you have something going. I'm not competitive at all. I won't even care if I come in last place. I wondered why I appear to be competitive, and then I saw myself winning in games all the time. It was just a coincidence though. My goal wasn't to win. You really seem to put on a different mindset when you play games. It's like you roll up your sleeves and get to action. Might as well do my best. Yeah, that's exactly it. But I don't get angry even if I lose to someone. Then I'll ask this. Are you ambitious? No, I don't really have a lot of ambition. I usually lower my expectations with everything. Then I feel that much happier when I acquire something later on. It really saddens me when I really want something, but don't end up getting it. So I like to think that nothing is given to me. I feel more comfortable that way. Then the current GFRIEND must be a huge surprise, right? Yeah, I'm very thankful for the position we are in. Even then, don't you have something that does motivate yourself? Something that you really want to be good at. I haven't thought about it too much. Wouldn't it be better to just be good at anything? You seem to have ambitions as an entertainer. Don't you always want to make people happy? I do have something like that. I feel happy when I see others smiling because of me. You might not have any ambitions, but do you have a goal? Mm, I want to be a friend that can make my close people happy. Source: GQ Korea Translated by Albatro
  21. Real GFRIEND #Umji Date: 160622 Even your outfit says maknae. Yeah, hehe. What do you think about people looking at you as just the maknae? I'm the youngest in my family too, so I feel comfortable about it. You're actually the same age as SinB, but you're so much more of the maknae. You also appeared together on related search keywords, and weren't there also articles about how you two don't get along? Ah, I saw that too. That's precisely only a rumour. There was something like this with SinB. You know how you actually act less friendly to people who you're really close to, compared to acquaintances, right? That's why we appeared to not get along, but people took that the wrong way. I think we talk to each other the most, understand each other well, and she's a great friend. In fact, I hear from other members that they learn from your firm and decisive personality, despite being the youngest. I really appreciate unnies talking about me like that. To be honest, I think growing up with much older unnie and oppa made me mature quicker, rather than me necessarily having a firm and decisive personality. What do you think your role is in GFRIEND? Probably just maknae? But hey, maknae is just an age. So I mean like your strength. Mm, I think I take on the role of an intermediary. Let's say there is a conflict between two people. Then I observe for a bit and point out 'this unnie is like that, and that unnie is like this' and propose something to talk about as a solution. Being an intermediary has been my habit since I was a kid. What's the most important part in solving conflicts? Speaking so that I don't hurt either person's feelings is the most important part. So I start off by acknowledging their side and then point some things out. If I point stuff out after empathizing with them, then they are more inclined to listen to me. It's one of those answers you'd see in a book like < Conversation Techniques >. I see where you got your title of being firm and decisive. Thank you. Actually, I thought you would mention your cute voice as your strength. Don't you have some pride in that too? Well, you know how listening to your own voice as you speak is different from hearing a recorded version of your voice? When I was young, I didn't like my recorded voice. But after debuting, our fans told me that I had a pretty voice. I never thought about my voice that way. Thanks to that, my thoughts changed and even gained confidence in my voice. I'm thinking I should investigate what I could do with my voice. Isn't it animation voiceovers? That's right. That's one of the areas I really want to try. Really. I heard you like Disney animations? I really like < Rapunzel >, < The Little Mermaid >, < Winnie the Pooh > and all of the Disney princess movies. Which role would be the best for you? Rapunzel. I think I've watched < Rapunzel > at least 5 times. I'd think < Thumbelina > would also have a disney animation. (We confirmed that there is a 1994 animation < Thumbelina > produced by Warner) Ah, I should go look it up. I'm sure you're sick of hearing this, but you're okay with your name Umji now, right? I've gotten used to it, and I'm satisfied with it now. The name seems to stick to me now. You and the name Umji just goes so well together. Yeah, I'm glad that people aren't forgetting my name easily. \ Source: GQ Korea Translated by Albatro
  22. Real GFRIEND #Eunha Date: 160622 Fans seem to have many different opinions on your bangs. Ah, yeah. Haha. Personally, which style do you prefer? I just like both. I had bangs during middle school, and this is the first time lowering my hair in 5 years. So it feels slightly different. So your hairstyle changed again? Heheh, yeah. I changed it in preparation for our next song. For some reason, talks relating to visuals seem to follow you around. Say, 'sides beauty'. I'm not quite a 'sides beauty', but I do think my sides look better than my front. Your eyes are pretty too. Well, my eyes are visible on the sides too. You once pointed out that you like your fingers, right? Just now, the members were going crazy over how pretty your fingers are during the photoshoot. I was asked for my charm point, but I didn't have one in particular. So I answered that some people like my small and chubby hands. What do you think you lack in? Too many. I have too many things I lack in. You may be wondering why I asked this, but it's because you don't seem to have confidence when you talk. It's because my visuals don't really stand out. Am I just lowering my self-esteem too much? Heheh. Your beauty stands out though.... Thank you. Shall we talk about something else? You seem to be getting more and more parts in GFRIEND's songs. What do you think your role is in GFRIEND? Yeah, I really appreciate that. In our team, I'm responsible for being the cutie-pie. Now that I see it, your charm point is how you hesitantly speak in an unconfident tone. But I spoke these words with confidence. Haha. I'm sorry. But you aren't sort of frozen right now, right? No, I'm okay. Did I do something wrong.... Not really. Maybe it's because I'm sad after hearing that I lack confidence. But that's sort of true. You're someone who not only fans, but who partners look for the most. Didn't you participate in the most music videos and song features? If you think about it, why would anyone look for someone who has no charms in this harsh business world? What I want to say is, you have all the rights in the world to be confident in yourself. Thank you. That really does fascinate me. Why did they choose me? So I do have a bit of pressure to do well to not be a nuisance to anyone. Any new songs you liked recently? I listened to a lot of songs by 'Dean'. I think this album is good. What song do you usually practice with? Like Dean's album, whichever song that I frequently listen to at that moment. What kind of song do you think suits you the best? I'm not entirely sure yet. I tried ballads, calmer songs with rap features, and cheerful songs too. People say my voice changes with every genre. I still don't know what I'm particularly good at, and I want to try out a variety of genres. Personally, I liked when you sang 'The Thorn Birds' from < Immortal Songs >. Oh, really? That's a calm one. Perhaps your strength is being able to perform a variety of genres in unique voices. Yeah. I'm not completely settled with anything, and I have lots that I want to try.

  23. 2017.06.23 Fri GFRIEND Yerin's Beauty Secret Women always dream of 'skin that goes well with makeup'. Such skin is even more sought after during the hot and humid summer days! Could it perhaps be possible to maintain a fresh skin condition throughout the day despite being under the scorching sunlight? It's important to pick the correct skin care to strengthen the skin! Like GFRIEND's Yerin, whose base makeup never falters even when she performs powerful dances on stage. Do you remember how we often met in our washroom during trainee days? That's right! The building right across from our practice room was Cosmo's building, so we often used that washroom. When I was a trainee, I also did so much laundry there. Haha. The washroom there was much better than our practice room. You're actually pretty tall, but you appear relatively short on screen. Maybe it's because all of our members are tall, but many people do tend to think I'm short and small. Do you take special care of your body? This is pretty cool, but I don't get much fat on my arms and thighs whereas I start growing a belly as soon as I eat. I don't know why. So when I have to wear an outfit that reveals my tummy, I drastically reduce the amount I eat. I stayed away from exercise for a while because I didn't like it, but I plan on attending pilates sessions starting next month. Is there a reason why you are looking to start pilates despite not being a fan of exercise? Personally, I don't prefer having a skinny/thin body. But having fat hanging down isn't my style either. I could successfully diet by starving, but I realized that I have to exercise to get a well-toned body. After knowing this, I just couldn't not start exercising. It's a tall task to go on a diet in the early 20's when you aren't yet familiar with your body. It's also a time when you get hungry all the time. I definitely agree! Immediately following debut, everything related to going on a diet was difficult, not just restraining myself from eating. But if you think about it, going on a diet is an effort for myself. Because I'm the one who benefits from losing weight. Thinking about it this way, going on a diet became a happy thing. So now I endure the process, hoping for a good result. And if night eating binges start to taunt me, I can just go to bed earlier. Haha. I didn't think I would get such a mature answer from a 22 year old! Do you have any other personal weight management techniques? Anasarca on my legs is pretty bad. So no matter what, I lie down on the floor before going to sleep, lean my legs against the wall, and do a L-shaped stretch. I also never eat to the point where I'd feel full. Do you also actively take care of your skin? Nope. My skin is still relatively healthy, so I don't bother too much. I also take the least time to wash my face compared to the members. I heard you brought your pouch for Cosmo today. If you could tell us your favourite item? I really love YSL's orange lipstick. It goes well with my skin, and I especially like it because it looks natural. So I tend to buy two or three of those at a time. Also, The Face Shop's perfumes and MAC Sculpting Powder are also essentials that I can't leave out. Being fairly young, I don't think you would be too concerned about beauty.... My lower body is prone to scratches. I get a scar even if my skin just grazes some surface, and regularly applying skin refining ointment doesn't seem to heal that. I'm also concerned about my face appearing bigger on screen due to my pale skin. Please tell us your future promotion plans. I guess a GFRIEND album will be released this year? Because we love each other so much, I'm happiest when I promote as GFRIEND. I dare say with confidence that our teamwork is second to none among girl groups. In the future, we'll be working hard to promote, so please wait for us! Source: Cosmopolitan Korea Credit: Editor Ha Yun-Jin Translated by Albatro

  25. Buddii it's been a while since my last From, FRom, FROM I was watching our stage performances while coming back home! And the Buddies' cheers were so loud in the video, so I thought about Buddies and got over here It's been fairly hot these days, but nobody's exhausted from the heat, right..? Despite the heat dragging us down these days!!!!!! When I think about Buddies, I cool down and it's pretty awesome Buddies are like that too, right? Say that you are too, now Be careful of mosquitoes too.. You may be tempted to scratch your mosquito bites because they're itchy, But scratching them can leave scars, so absolutely no scratching. I'll scold you if you do, you got it? So that you can sleep cooler tonight, I brought a very short-haired Eunbi Have I ever uploaded this photo before? Anyway hope you have a cool night after seeing my photos, g'night! Translated by Albatro
