Oh My Girl

Oh My Girl (Korean: 오마이걸, also stylized as OH!MYGIRL and OMG) is an eight-member South Korean girl group formed by WM Entertainment. They debuted on April 21, 2015, with a self-titled mini-album.

2015: Debut with Oh My Girl and Closer
Oh My Girl was publicized as the new sister group of label-mate group B1A4. In March 29, 2015, teaser images of the eight members were released as well as their concept images. On April 20, the group released their first mini album, Oh My Girl, which included the single “Cupid”. They held their debut showcase the same day. They first performed the single on SBS MTV’s The Show.

On June 21, the group announced that they were currently preparing a new album. Their second mini album, Closer, was released on October 7. The single of the same name was promoted on music shows.

On December 11, Oh My Girl flew to LA for a photoshoot for their next album jacket and to perform at a special event, but could not get cleared by customs to enter the US. The group’s management claimed that customs mistook the girls for underage prostitutes due to props and outfits for their special performance at an event on the Saturday of that week, and that they were detained for 15 hours. However, an official with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection later stated that management was lying about the reason for being denied entry. Upon seeing the contents of the performers’ luggage, customs officials determined the group was entering the U.S. to perform, not to go sight seeing as the group had claimed. As the group did not have the required P1 performance visa, they were denied entry. The customs official denied that the group was “detained” for 15 hours, noting that they were put on the first available flight back to Korea on the airline they traveled with.

2016: Pink Ocean, Windy Day, Listen to My Word (A-ing) and first concert Summer Fairytale Edit
Oh My Girl’s third EP, Pink Ocean, was released on March 28, 2016 with the title track “Liar Liar”, and a pre-released single “Step by Step”. On the same day, Oh My Girl announced their official fandom name, “Miracle”, at their comeback showcase for Pink Ocean and also on the group’s V-app. The group promoted “Liar Liar” and “Step by Step”, a B-side written by B1A4’s Jinyoung, on their comeback stages and at guerrilla concerts in Hongdae and Sinchon. In the beginning of May, the group promoted “Step by Step” for four days on the music programs M! Countdown, Inkigayo, Music Core and Music Bank.

On May 26, 2016, Pink Ocean was reissued as Windy Day with two new songs: “Windy Day” and “Stupid in Love”, along with the Chinese version of “Liar Liar” (which was released in Pink Ocean exclusively on online streaming services in China). On August 1, they released a special summer album containing four remake songs, including Papaya’s “Listen to My Word (A-ing)” featuring Skull and Haha.

On August 20 and 21, Oh My Girl held their first solo concert titled Summer Fairytale at the Blue Square Samsung Card Hall in Seoul, South Korea. Tickets were available to purchase on July 22 and were sold out within three minutes, breaking the record for the fastest sold-out concert for a rookie group.

Gfriend

GFriend (Hangul: 여자친구; RR: Yeoja Chingu; stylized as GFRIEND) is a six-member South Korean girl group formed by Source Music in 2015. The group consists of Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB and Umji. They made their debut with the EP Season of Glass on January 15, 2015. GFriend won several 2015 female rookie awards and has garnered momentum since their debut, despite coming from a small company. In 2016, they continued their success with their third EP Snowflake and won first place on many music shows with the title song “Rough”. They released their first full-length album LOL in July 2016.

Gfriend in 2015
On January 15, 2015, GFriend released their five-track debut EP Season of Glass. The promotional track “Glass Bead” (Hangul: 유리구슬; RR: Yuri Guseul), composed by Seo Yong-bae and Iggy, debuted at number twelve on Gaon’s weekly chart. The group started promotions for their album on January 16 on KBS’s music program Music Bank. According to YouTube, the M/V of “Glass Bead” ranked number nine in top ten “Most Viewed K-Pop Videos Around the World in January 2015”. On January 28, 2015, Billboard named GFriend as one of “Top 5 K-Pop Artists to Watch in 2015”.

GFriend released their second EP Flower Bud and the music video for title track “Me Gustas Tu” (Hangul: 오늘부터 우리는; RR: Oneulbuteo Urineun; lit. “Starting Today, Us”) on July 23, 2015. GFriend started their group promotions on the same date as the album release, July 23, 2015 on Mnet’s M! Countdown.

The group garnered international attention after a fan-taken video of GFriend members continuing and completing a performance of “Me Gustas Tu” despite continuously falling on a slippery stage went viral in September 2015. The group was praised for their professionalism, especially Yuju, who fell a total of eight times and suffered a twisted finger during the performance.

On September 17, 2015, GFriend made headlines again as the only girl group to be nominated in the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards “Best Korean Act” category alongside boy groups B1A4, BTS, Got7, and VIXX.

2016–present: Snowflake, first music show wins and first studio album Edit
On January 25, 2016, GFriend released their third EP titled Snowflake with the title track “Rough” (Hangul: 시간을 달려서; RR: Siganeul Dallyeoseo; lit. “Running Through Time”). “Rough” is the last song to complete GFriend’s high school concept trilogy along with “Glass Bead” and “Me Gustas Tu”. During their fan-meeting after the EP’s showcase release, GFriend announced their fandom name to be “Buddy” (Hangul: 버디). GFriend started the promotions for Snowflake on January 26 on SBS MTV’s music program The Show. The album debuted at number ten on Billboard’s World Albums Chart, and the music video of “Rough” on YouTube ranked number three in top ten “Most Viewed K-Pop Videos Around the World in January 2016”.

On February 2, GFriend received their first music show win for their song “Rough” on The Show. They subsequently won another fourteen awards on the music shows including winning their first triple crowns on M! Countdown, Music Bank, Show Champion, and Inkigayo. With a total of 15 wins, it placed second with the number of wins for girls groups, behind Apink who recorded a total of 17 wins with “Luv”.

On June 15 it was announced that GFriend will star alongside Mamamoo on a new season of Showtime. On June 29, Source Music started teasing for GFriend’s first studio album LOL, signifying at the same time “Laughing Out Loud” and “Lots of Love”. LOL was released on July 11 with the title track “Navillera” (Hangul: 너 그리고 나; RR: Neo Geurigo Na), and reportedly had more than 60,000 pre-ordered copies worldwide.[18] On July 19, GFriend earned their first music show win for the album’s single “Navillera” on The Show.

Gugudan

image

Gugudan (Hangul: 구구단, stylized as gugudan or gu9udan) is a South Korean girl group formed in 2016 by Jellyfish Entertainment. The group consists of nine members: Mimi, Hana, Haebin, Nayoung, Sejeong, Sally, Soyee, Mina and Hyeyeon.

In January 2016, Kim Na-young, Kim Se-jeong and Kang Mi-na were introduced as Jellyfish Entertainment’s first female trainees on the Mnet survival show Produce 101 where 101 female trainees from various companies competed to debut in an 11-member girl group that would promote for a year under YMC Entertainment. After placing 2nd and 9th respectively in the final episode, Sejeong and Mina eventually debuted as members of I.O.I in May 2016.

2016-present: Debut with “Wonderland”
Despite denying earlier reports about Sejeong and Mina debuting in a 7-member girl group in June, the company confirmed on June 7 that the two I.O.I members would debut within the month in what would be the company’s first girl group. Because of YMC Entertainment’s special terms in which I.O.I’s members are allowed to do activities under their respective companies while IOI was on break or while the group promoted in sub-units, there were no complications with the plan.

Nayoung was also confirmed as a member on June 10 and on June 13, the company revealed that Gugudan would be a 9-member group. On June 17, Jellyfish Entertainment announced the group name.

On June 22, the group confirmed that they were going for a “mermaid” concept. Following the announcement, a highlight medley of the group’s debut mini-album was released on June 24 and they eventually debuted on June 28, 2016 with the mini-album, Act. 1 The Little Mermaid, with “Wonderland” as the title song. The song’s music video was released online via a live countdown on the Naver V App.
