Kicking off the week on Naver V app’s Tuesday rookie-filled lineup were members from GFriend and Berry Good, who celebrated their high school graduation yesterday. GFriend’s Eunbi (also known as ShinB) and Yewon (Umji), decked out in their golden graduation uniforms, were both overjoyed on capping off their high school careers. Starting off the show, the two starlets began reminiscing about attending their bandmates’ previous high school graduations.
“We have now become adults,” Eunbi sang cheerfully. “New adults.” “Time goes by so quickly, I can’t believe it,” they said. The two went on to discuss their excitement and slight trepidations entering adulthood. Both Eunbi and Yewon said one of the things they will feel most awkward about is not having to wear their school uniforms every day after so many years.
“It’s so weird to think that this will be the last time I will ever have to wear a school uniform,” says Eunbi. Along with two from GFriend, fellow young K-pop starlets Berry Good’s Daye, Gowoon and Sehyung are now high school graduates as well. "What time did everyone wake up this morning?” one of them asked.
“I couldn’t sleep at all (from excitement),” Daye answered. “I only got about 50 minutes sleep total,” Sehyung chimed in. The starlets went on to share what they are most looking forward to now that they have turned 20 years old by Korea’s traditional age system. Gowoon mentioned she was excited to be able to drink alcohol now and admitted to trying her first drink as soon as she turned 20. Her bandmates said they still had not imbibed their first drinks yet.
Also joining Tuesday’s rookie intensive lineup was boy band Imfact broadcasting live from the streets of Japan. Having finished up a concert performance, some of the band decided to spend free time wandering the streets of Japan. Jeup attracted attention decked out in a thick, black fur coat. “You came out wearing your mother’s clothes today,” Ungjae teased.
“Yes I did, my child,” Jeup quipped in response, taking on the role of his own mother. “Isn’t my son so cute?” Naver’s real-time broadcasting app V allows fans to interact with their favorite K-pop stars through live broadcasts.
