    I got a notification from Youtube when A tale of the glass bead was released, and I watched it without realizing that it was on Big Hit's account. It was only when I scrolled down to see the reactions to the commencement of the new theory, that I realized that a lot of Army's were present in the comments section. A few scrolls further someone wrote that they got a notification from BigHit, and I immediately scrolled back to check if the video was posted at the newly named BigHit Labels. What do you know, they actually posted it there.

    I'm happy about it, they're actively involve in the marketing of Gfriend, not only financing it. However, 31 million subscribers is hella scary. 31 million Moa's and Army's got a notification for Gfriend. That is very different from our humble 1.23 million subs at Gfriendofficial or the 170k subs at source music. I guess I'm nervous for every one's reaction towards their music, because they're so different from BTS or TXT.

    Most Army's are nice, and I've seen Moa's who were very supportive. So I think we'll have a respectful and healthy community at BigHit Labels. I hope us buddy, army, and Moa ( later also Carat and L.O.V.E) will continue to be respectful and supportive in the future.

    PS.
    I needed to get this of my chest, thank you reading. I love you fam!

    I think obviously there will be the manager armys upset that will be like "they are using BTS to make their other groups popular". Most ARMYs don't care that Gfriend is on Bighits youtube channel, espeically considering it it now called Bighit Labels. In fact I have seen a few checking out Gfriend

    I'm happy that Gfriend is finally getting the exposure they deserve.

    I think it's nice that a lot of people will get introduced to their music and hopefully like it.

    Before ARMY are accused of token stanning GFriend, just know since the Wednesday song and general respect BTS and GFriend have shown each other, GFriend have been an unofficial sister group since 2016. ARMY as a whole have no ill feelings towards GFriend and it helps that no Buddy is an edgy gg stan on twitter.

    Yes some will accept them, some will be neutral, some will don't care/ignore and ofc some will hate. That's just how it is. Best is to ignore the hate if possible

    Yeah I was also thinking about that. What will happen to the fandom, especially our reputation, with this influx of new attention. The bigger a fandom is, the bigger the pool of toxic fans is too. We'll see what the future has in story.

    Agreed! but it's harder to do that at twitter these days (or it has always been that way, idk).

    In order to progress Kpop to a more healthy level for both the artists and the fans, people should start supporting labels/agencies rather than just groups. I mean beyond a point of liking one.

    Regardless of the other fans, I think any group's fans should be delighted to hear that their group has moved to a label such as Bighit or JYP, for example. You know that your artists will be treated well compared to industry standard and the financing is there as well. It seems to me that Bighit played a huge role in BTS's success. Genius marketing. We have yet to see if they can create different styles of music (since tbh, TXT's music, although good, is very similar to BTS). Aside from that I'm confident that Bighit is capable of bringing GFriend to a whole new level.

    I can already see the threads on AKP with a few idiot people twitter posts (that can't even collect 3 likes) about how Army are trashing Gfriend that they are using BTS fame "for that clout". This thing will of course be blown out of proportion because of a few immature fans. Most Army will either support or be indifferent.

    I think it helps that buddies have never had beef with armys and have actually been one of the few fandoms Ive ever seen being supportive.

    Anyway, I hope this increased exposure will work out well for them. Me Gustas Tu and Rough are some of my favorite kpop songs, theyre very catchy:)

    Im already seeing Adora stans getting excited for the new material on my tl lol.

    The new video teaser was uploaded on BigHit's channel?

    Whoa, that's a smart move!
    That might get GFriend some serious attention :)

    People were posting the past days how GFriend were nowhere near their popularity peak of a few years ago, and that since Fingertip everything went downhill.
    But I get the feeling that this comeback of GFriend might be an epic one :D

    I hope so, they deserve it.

    I’m just ready for more great music from Gfriend!!! Gfriend has always had haters it’s just that they seem louder since Gfriend was acquired by Bighit. I say just ignore and keep supporting Gfriend in the end is all.
