DJ Choi Hwa Jung asked, "G-Friend are the only singers at your agency. Have your CEO and managers been treating you differently after your success?" The G-Friend members shook their heads and responded, "Their treatment of us hasn't changed. I think they're more cold and clear-cut the better we do."

When the DJ mentioned that the girls must at least get to eat delicious beef now and then, they answered jokingly, "We only got to eat beef after sending in our opinion that we wanted to eat it."

Still, the G-Friend members were grateful for their success and fans. They shared, "We have a lot in our schedule, but we feel good because people want to see us. Today, we woke up at 7AM," adding, "We always check our place on the music charts."

Even the big 3 companies SM, JYP, & YG don't treat their artists well, what makes people think other companies would? I think that idols are working FOR the company just like the other staffs are working, but the difference is they are put in the spotlight. If they treat their artist like kings & queens, they'll end up with spoiled brats. Idols sign contracts with their companies agreeing that they'll follow certain rules like even practicing until 5am.. it's a different thing if the company 'demanded' for an idol to work with them. But usually these idols are the ones that has passed their rookie years & has achieved a lot. As much as we hate how they're treated, it's what our favs CHOSE to go through to be an idol.

im guessing that the girls are still not earning much money, despite 3 hit songs? that's why you n eed to sell more albums and do concerts. selling singles doesnt earn you much cash

I don't think that's the case. They're earning money alright, but like they said.. they have so much on their schedule. They don't even have their own cars to go wherever. Even if they had the money, they're still in the early years of earning something and also SAVING. Just like any other normal person, if they know that the company has the money to spend for them, they'd rather use that instead of their own. Even those groups from the big 3 still ask for others or their company to buy for for them..

Don't they mind that they were treated to still practicing choreography on 3 AM ? Don't they mind that they were not allowed to go home before they mastered the choreography ? It is not the problem about eating beef or not. That's up to everyone. Practicing on 3 in the morning is a such pain. Why don't G-Friend give their opinion about that ? I don't care about if that activity is not a weird thing in K-POP and K-Drama. It's about their health. Also, their agency doesn't give much freedom to G-Friend. They are not allowed to play SNS. At least, Sowon, as the leader, is allowed to play SNS in order to interact with BUDDY, to tell the members condition to BUDDY. As a BUDDY, I am not disappointed with their success but I am disappointed with the agency treatment to G-Friend.

They're not going to die if they don't use SNS. Anyways, if they don't work hard now, another rookie group will swoop in and take their place.

nobody will take their place if they stop training on choreography till 3 in the morning. That's because their song and image of looking like lolitas is what turned them into a hit - not their dances.

Are you sure you're a buddy? Do you even know what a lolita is? They're school age girls. At least when they debuted, almost the entire group except for Sowon was in high school. And someone will take their place if they don't continue with a grueling schedule full of activities and dance practices that unfortunately last all night. Blackpink is debuting soon and they have the advantage of a huge company and tons of marketing under them.

u r so wrong.. I hated them because of their 'lolita' image.. I only gave in to them after i watched their dance practices. I wouldn't stan them if they had JUST girly/cutesy dances. Even most of the people i got to know who likes gf, said they fell for gf BECAUSE of dances.. even before gf got famous

Yes they work hard, but the company must pay attention to the members stamina and health.

Their dances or choreography are also unique. I see none of them has lolita image. They are all mature, even Umji.
