G-Friend members SinB and Yuju both made an appearance on the February 22nd broadcast of KBS 2TV’s “Hello”, where they discussed their group name. For those who had ever thought their name was cheesy, wait until you hear the other name that they could just as easily have ended up promoting under!
The girls were asked, "Who chose your group name?" Yuju answered, "The CEO chose it. The CEO chose and liked it. After hearing other group name candidates later on, G-Friend turned out to be the best. There was even the name, World Peace," which made everyone laugh.
GFriend (stylized as GFRIEND) is a six-member South Korean girl group formed by Source Music in 2015. They made their debut with the EP Season of Glass on January 16, 2015. GFriend won a number of music program awards in the beginning of 2016 with their song "Rough". They are also winners of several 2015 female rookie awards and have garnered a lot of momentum since their debut, despite coming from a small company.
