    and y'all paid them dust!

    Stream Fever Season. This may have made me a Buddy. We'll see


    The way they went from tropical house, to pop, to pop rock, to deep house, gospel and R&B, to new jack swing, to Latin-influenced dance so SMOOTHLY is beyond me. This entire album is amazing from start to finish.

    It's also a MINI! Not even a full. There's so much sonic cohesion and high quality production. Not to mention how they all sound great too!

    EXACTLY! People will listen to Me Gustas Tu, Summer Rain, and Love Whisper and think their entire discography sounds like that. Clowns!

    ikr I wish people took the time to listen to their full albums before dragging their music.
    They're missing out on good music.

    "Fever Season" is awesome.
    You won't find many fans on this forum.
    GFriend is the most successful group that nobody talks about.

    Seriously, it's so weird,
    They have really great sales, I mean They are over 750,000 career album sales in 4 years, no other group outside of the Big 3 has achieved that.

    They have the 3rd highest GG music show wins of all time: 59 wins in 4 years

    Over 40K in concert attendance over 2 years

    Raised a company from nothing, with no senior groups or big money support, paid off their debt and upgraded dorms twice.
    They now live in two fancy dorms, with each having their own room. (3 in each dorm)

    They are the most successful non- Big 3 GG, that's just fact. (You can not like them as a kpop act, but unless you stan big 3 GG's, they earn more than your favs)

    And yet, pretty much everybody in the forums I visit pretty much pretend they don't exist.


    Welcome to the life of an International Buddy.

    Just be happy that they have plenty of support in Korea and SEA, and enjoy the music.

    Gfriend did not serve one of the best albums of this year just to be forgotten! The girls have been serving quality BOPS since they debuted.
    Wish is my favorite song on the album BTW

    I think IZ*ONE already outsold them in physical. They hover around 1,3m total album sales the last time I checked.
    Their concert attendance also reached more than 80k.

    Edit :
    Afraid my post came out as wrong, I'm just correcting his/her claim, not trying to be an ass.

    Umm.. no
    Color*Iz 249,150
    Heart*Iz 277,859

    Total album sales on GAON: 527,009

    1: I've only used GAON's numbers. I've only used GAON's numbers for GFriend as well, I have not included Japan sales.

    2: IZ*ONE is not a real group. They are a Produce Group, not for the long term. They will disband soon enough. They are designed to make money fast, and then quit. The members will move on, Only the Japanese members will have a chance at continued success. History has already shown what happens to a lot of the members of those groups afterwards. (Not doing too well)

    3: They have big money and big companies behind them. While technically not "Big 3", they are backed by even bigger companies. (EMI Japan could swallow YG and JYP and still have room for desert,)

    4: They have fame before official debut as a group, with built in fanbase.

    I stand by what I said, in essence, GFriend is the most successful Girl Group from a small company.
    A top 5 GG where 4 of those groups come from the big 3 or even larger "Produce" acts.
