GFSquad Project - GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary Coal Wreath!

Thanks to your kindness and generosity, we've surpassed our goal! Congratulations, Buddies!

We'll continue to accept donations until Jan. 5, 2017. More donations equal more people helped. Lots of Love Buddies!

2016 GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary

GFRIEND 2nd Anniversary Coal Wreath by GFSquad

GFS is excited to announce the details of our first official project as a fansite. 

As winter is quickly approaching, we will be raising money for a coal wreath that we will deliver to GFRIEND. 

For those of you who don't know, coal briquettes are used in Korea to keep houses warm and for cooking. Many elderly or rural people rely on these for a source of warmth during the cold months. By contributing to our project, you will be making sure people who cannot always afford coal will stay warm this winter! 

Since this is our first project and we are unsure of how much we can raise as a group, we will start modest. We're planning to purchase a coal wreath from dreame.co.kr, a site that sends support rice wreaths, coal wreaths, and many other things in the name of idols, actors/actresses, and other celebrity icons in Korea. 

 

Our initial donation goal will be $250.00USD.

For more details on how to donate, please see the announcement! Thank you Buddies!

"You haven’t seen half of half of half of an amazing world, GFRIEND will show you"
(T/N: Translations of hangul phrase at the poster based from LOL lyrics)

 

Hello Buddies~! GFRIEND DC GALLERY is here to announce their wonderful project for GFRIEND's 2nd year debut anniversary.

For those who are not aware about DC GALLERY it's a Korean open community somewhat like reddit or OneHallyu. That community has a section for GFRIEND. They also lend some tutorials in English to support GFRIEND during their comeback and during MAMA 2016. 

Here is the link of their projects for GFRIEND since debut: http://gall.dcinside.com/board/view/?id=gf&no=605054

They are here to share their project to Buddies all over the world and I hope that we, I-Buddies can show lots of love and support for their project.

[FANACC] Meeting Sowon in Budapest, Hungary!

7 posts in this topic

I had the luck to meet with Sowon both days she spent in Hungary, first day out of luck and second day because a Hungarian hallyu organization I work with managed to settle a mini-interview with her for our online magazine, and even if it has been almost a month ago, I still can't believe it happened.

The first day I woke up to see her instagram post from a restauran in my city, and I nearly ran to the city so I could at least tell "Gfriend fighting" to her or something like that, because I was sure she would love to know they are loved even in such a small Eastern European country like mine is, but for hours I had no luck even though I went to every single place I thought they would include in a traveling show. (And the weather was really bad, we had a really strong wind that day.) But just when I was about to get home, Sowon posted another photo from a boat and I went to the Danube bank to at least try to guess where could she be. But lol, I accidentally ended up choosing to go down to the river the same street she happened to be at. She was at a restaurant and I almost tripped over my own feet when I realized it's her. I didn't go there though, not wanting to disturb her while having dinner and it turned out as a wise decision because after a while they started recording her eating. After they finished and started leaving, me and my friend (who got there a bit later than I did) gained all our courage to approach her just to tell her we love them, and she was so adorable, she instantly pointed at my phone (I was clutching onto it because it didn't fit in my pocket lol) like "selca? selca?" and ngl we both were lowkey dying there. After we took the photo we told her 'thank you' in Korean and she called us 'cute girls' in English. I'm still not recovered from that.

As for the second day, I had to bury the fan deep inside and take out my professional side and I was sucessful more or less lol. We (me and a friend who also works for that organization) knew both the place and the time and we went there just then.... but they were like two hours late. (Thank god I had the number of the translator guy who kept updating us.) But in the end they showed up and Sowon was just as breathtaking as the day before. If not more. AND SHE REMEMBERED ME FROM THE DAY BEFORE. :") But we were mostly sticking to the translator guy the whole time not wanting to disturb the shooting the slightest bit when they came up with the idea of THEM recording the interview we were supposed to do with Sowon (??? I still don't understand why and we never got the actual footage so I will have to find a way to get it if it's not going to be put on the show) so... we ended up doing it like that. We managed to surprise Sowon with asking her questions in Korean lol after we finished she was all "Did you learn Korean????" and then she asked us if we liked k-pop and Gfriend. (I don't think I've ever nodded so enthusiastically in my life before.) And after that she wanted to take a 'thumbs up' photo with us, where I was lowkey dying because I connect that to Umji and I'm just really weak for Umji. But I managed to keep my #Professional side through the whole time. (Well... until we got far enough for them to not see or hear us anymore.)  

 

After watching the first episode of Gfriend Loves Europe and seeing how worried Sowon was about coming here alone I hope we at least managed to feel loved or something like that. ;; And I'm a bit bummed Umji wasn't able to participate in the shooting because I was planning on making a sign like "UMJI YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL" for her because I wanted her to know how much I love her, but I'm not complaining at all. ^^ I'm sure one day I'll get to tell that to her.

I know... though I only have one right now, because the other was taken by the staff, so I'll probably only have it when that part airs in the show but I'm patient. (But hearing my Korean pronounciation will destroy me. ;__;)

 

Anyway, I forgot to mention, on the second day we also gave Sowon a small gift (with a Hungarian chocolate, a Hungarian candy that's good for their throat, a mini calendar, a magnet and a postcard (we wrote Buddy <3 Gfriend) at the back of it)) to make sure she'll never forget us. She was so surprised she was so cute......
If you want to see it, we put up a photo of it on the organization's instagram here. (lmao you also can see us interviewing her. I'm the blonde one.)
