For those of you who haven’t already heard, KCON USA has recently announced that GFRIEND will be joining the performance lineup for the New York leg of KCON 2017 USA. Woohoo!
If you’re not quite familiar with this wildly popular group, allow me to offer a brief introduction. GFRIEND is a six-member girl group under Source Music, who debuted with the EP Season of Glass in South Korea on January 16, 2015. The group consists of: Sowon (the group’s leader, main rapper and vocalist), Yerin (the group’s lead dancer and vocalist), Eunha (lead vocalist), Yuju (main vocalist and dancer), SinB (main vocalist, dancer), and Umji (the group’s lead rapper, vocalist and maknae). In the same year, GFriend won several female rookie awards and made headlines as the only girl group to be nominated in the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards’ “Best Korean Act” category, with their EP Flower Bud. After releasing their third EP, Snowflake, in 2016, they won first place on M!Countdown, Music Bank, Show Champion and Inkigayo with title song “Rough.” The music videos of “Rough” and “Navillera” were ranked 2nd and 10th in top 10 K-pop MVs most beloved by South Koreans in 2016 on YouTube. In 2017, GFriend released their fourth EP The Awakening with title song “Fingertip.”
Having been lucky enough to see GFRIEND in person on a couple of occasions, I can honestly say their performance is one you’re not going to want to miss. Their talent and charms are numerous and they’re such a delight to see in person! I have no doubt they’ll be capturing all sorts hearts during their appearance New York appearance.
This group of delightful young ladies joins CNBLUE and Twice as part of the KCON 2017 NY lineup, which is scheduled to take place at the Prudential Center on June 23-24. I’m sure you already know this but once tickets go on sale, they’re probably going to sell out just as quickly as they did last year. After all, who doesn’t want to be a part of the world’s leading Hallyu convention?
