If you have been following the KPOP music scene closely, it is a well-known fact that GFRIEND has been on a role this month, dominating various music charts and even sweeping different music shows for the past few weeks with their new song “Rough”. In today’s episode of SBS’s “Inkigayo”, the group took home their 12th win for the same song, continuing their winning streak!
GFRIEND made their comeback with their new mini-album “Snowflake” in January-end and since its release, the title track “Rough” has been No.1 on different Korean music charts for almost a month now. The group also recently bagged their third consecutive win on “Music Bank” beating out strong rivals like Taeyeon’s “Rain” and Zico’s “I Am You, You Are Me”. It can be mentioned that GFRIEND’s superhit and viral song “Me Gustas Tu” bounced back on various digital music charts after their slippery stage performance which went viral around the world during the second half of 2015.
After debuting in January last year, the group celebrated their first anniversary in the KPOP music industry recently and also announced their official fanclub name, Buddy. GFRIEND also recorded a total of more than 30,000 fans joining their fanclub within one year and five months, which is the shortest time any girl group has reached such a huge amount. The group also won the ‘New Artist of the Year‘ award in many award shows including the recently held ‘Gaon Chart KPOP Awards’.
Considering their achievements in the last few months, there’s no doubt that GFRIEND is among the top rising groups in KPOP and they surely have a long way to go! Hopefully, they will also come to India to perform for us in the near future!
