G-Friend appeared on 'Yoo Hee Yeol's Sketchbook' on September 3!

Yoo Hee Yeol asked the members, "People point out that all of G-Friend's songs sound alike. What do you think of that?"

SEE ALSO: G-Friend celebrate their 3rd anniversary with BUDDYs!

And the members replied wisely, "We think that's actually better.  It hasn't been long since we debuted, but this means that we've [already] established a place in which they listen to a song and think automatically of our style [of music], so we believe that's something good to hear."

Meanwhile, older groups still struggle to find their signature or even a unique sound!  What do you think of this?

This is funny. Why should a group that just debuted a year ago hurry and change immediately? I know Rough and Navillera is in that place where they are kinda the same but also not. But again this is a group that debuted last year. Other girl groups like SNSD and Apink released similar songs in the beginning and only really branched out after two or three years. Give this girls a break and let's atleast wait until next year before we start giving them hate about things like this.

Having similar sounding songs doesn't make them unique.

michinpabo Saturday, September 3, 2016

It's a tricky question and they gave a safe answer. Can't fault them for that.

INtheSPIRIT michinpabo Sunday, September 4, 2016

Yeah I agree it would have been quite hard to answer. However the script was went through before hand, I doubt they wouldn't have something prepared

gfriend songs sound the same and when I hear their song I don't think this is gfriend style I think this is another cute groups song. Other groups like kara and infinite all their songs are different concepts but as soon as I hear i know it's their song!

VixxL Saturday, September 3, 2016

They just recently debuted we should wait a bit and see what they bring there's plenty of time they understood the critism and might bring something different.

INtheSPIRIT Saturday, September 3, 2016

I can't believe they can be happy about it? People frequently called EXID out for their similar songs, they promised a different one, and they gave it. But if Gfriend are happy with all their songs sounding alike will they ever put out something different? Also, "Meanwhile older groups struggle to find a signature or a unique sound!" Really akp? Groups try to provide fans with a variety of different music = NO UNIQUE SOUND! Wow. Also, like what many people said below, many old groups DO have a unique sound and manage to have songs that aren't the same. I wonder how. Similar sounding songs will obviously be the same style, but songs in the same style don't have to sound the same. You get it?

haanilee INtheSPIRIT Saturday, September 3, 2016

I agree...I like Exid during their every night era.. honestly I only like up and down but I didn't like ah yea, hot pink ..especially ah yeah sound similar, but I think the reason why they use similar sound maybe because their previous song was so successful that if that make it similar to that it goin to be successful as well

INtheSPIRIT haanilee Sunday, September 4, 2016

Yeah I know. I actually like EXID a little and I think LIE is a great and brave breakaway. I guess Gfriend are doing the same thing with the success thing but really it's been too long now. It's already their 4th(?) song

lala90 Saturday, September 3, 2016

Honestly I was just thinking the same thing. I think the reason why Navirella didn't catch on with me cause it sounds similar to their last releases. And similar music and style of music isn't the same. Like Wonder Girls like to do retro music but none of their songs sound the same. And that shade at the end was unnecessary!! Lol

badjainna lala90 Saturday, September 3, 2016

Me Gustas Tu and Navirella aren't the same, I was taken a back at first listening to Navillera coz it change a bit but the more I listen the more i become addicted coz its a mix of Rock music specially that guitar riff and as always their dance choreo are done pretty well, specially that move after the Anheullae then toot-toot-tootot.

haanilee lala90 Saturday, September 3, 2016

Yes I agree,like infinite , Kara, Nine muses,wonder girls I really like them cos their music style doesn't sound similar but..if u heard it once , u could guess that its their song

lala90 badjainna Saturday, September 3, 2016

I'll agree that Me Gustas Tu is different but Navirella sounds like Rough to me. Thanks for disagreeing and not not biting my head off!! Lol I've listened to it a couple more times and it does sound like a nice song. I definitely like that G-Friend's music sounds like shoujo anime openings!! Lol

macmacmac lala90 Monday, September 5, 2016

I agree. Me Gustas Tu was the most different out of their releases so far. Glass Bead, Tough, and now Navillera are quite similar to each other.

JJJ1234 Saturday, September 3, 2016

Similar sounding songs doesnt mean style of music please.

fantasticlau Saturday, September 3, 2016

Having a style of music and constantly making the same songs isn't the same thing. Infinite, for example, has a style that many people knows but they never repeated themselves with the same stuff over and over. I'm not hating them or anything, but as a casual listener, I hope their company decides to give them something different next time. Navillera can be considered a flop when compared to their older songs, so maybe the company got the message the public is giving them. If they keep doing the same stuff they'll go down in no time since they aren't from a big company.

J_Hit fantasticlau Saturday, September 3, 2016

How on earth is Navillera a flop? it did well in terms of digital and physical sales, and it did well in terms of trophies won 14 is no joke mate.

fantasticlau J_Hit Monday, September 5, 2016

Pay attention to the "when compared to their older songs" part.

J_Hit fantasticlau Monday, September 5, 2016

You mean Rough?? Sure Rough did a little better since it won 15 awards but that's it. The album LOL btw did great in sales.

fantasticlau J_Hit Monday, September 5, 2016

Navillera didn't do as well as others at digitals

J_Hit fantasticlau Monday, September 5, 2016

Navillera did a lot better than all the other singles except for Rough and it was just a small difference. and if we're gonna talk about album sales, physical or digital, then LOL did way better than the others.

badjainna Saturday, September 3, 2016

Those criticism are just plain stupid!  Other groups couldn't even find their own style of music, while Gfriend has their own style of Music and once heard you'll know its them, and I like their music more coz they used more music instruments like the guitar riff and not pure dependent in electronic produce sound.And since they're new and winning lots of awards they don't need to gamble and experiment other type of music Yet.

INtheSPIRIT badjainna Saturday, September 3, 2016

The criticism is stupid? Having similar SOUNDING songs does not mean they have a unique style of music. That means they are reusing their format and songs. When you hear it you'll know it's Gfriend because it's the same as the other songs. If they depend on doing the same songs to win awards it's sort of sad and although people will still like them others will get sick.

badjainna INtheSPIRIT Saturday, September 3, 2016

Yeah its plain stupid , it similar coz the composer of all their hit songs is the same idiot. Gfriend has their own songs that FIT WELL for them why risking other songs that makes them sound generic like the others. And besides if you listen well to their song from Glass Bead to Rough to Me Gustas Tu and to Navillera their style hasn't change but their songs are improving really well.

seungriseyo badjainna Saturday, September 3, 2016

That's the thing though. If they keep making similar songs eventually people will get tired of them. I like chocolate but if that's the only thing I eat for months

seungriseyo Saturday, September 3, 2016

I will get tired of it * accidentally hit send button whoops

INtheSPIRIT badjainna Sunday, September 4, 2016

You must be a fan. I know it's hard to not defend your idols when people criticize them. Please think of it rationally though, if the stop their repetitive songs will they have to sound "generic"? They can still make good music without the same exact formula for a song. There are many elements to music that is good, if they found a good formula, overusing it is not a good thing. Although I don't particularly like their songs, they should be happy if they found a good one, then strive to make more good music.

badjainna INtheSPIRIT Sunday, September 4, 2016

Like I said their formula still working for them, they won't get 13 awards if it isn't. They will go to that path (change of concept and music) in near future or who knows their next album but Right now they should strike while the iron is hot, they are still young in the industry (2yrs) and I think its better if the members are comfortable with the new type of music before they switch. And the funny thing, you don't even like their music and yet you're telling to change their music when the fans still loving it. LOL!

INtheSPIRIT badjainna Monday, September 5, 2016

If I don't like it... Shouldn't I tell them to change??
