(G)I-DLE, a group of culturally diverse female starts, is the new buzz band following in the footsteps of other K-Pop artists who have made their mark in the US and around the world. Their arrival on the scene in 2018 included a slow reveal of the six members as well as a BTS-cover performance by the band before the viral debut. They then charted at #1 on the Korean Music Charts just 20 days after their debut and were subsequently awarded 10 ‘Rookie of the Year Awards’ in 2018. (G)I-DLE has also received accolades from fans and media around the world.
(G)I-DLE, recently made news in the US at their KCON/NY appearances including their show-stopping performance at Madison Square Garden. Their elated and screaming fans enjoyed the performance of their hits including “LATATA”, but also in a musical departure, the band’s theatrical performance of a song from the iconic movie, CHICAGO.
Press in attendance interviewed the young women at the conference and stories subsequently ran in Allure, Billboard, MTV News, and other outlets lauding them and making comparisons to artists such as BlackPink for their edgy, nonconforming style and musical diversity.
“We are so excited about making an impact in the United States for our fans there,” Soyeon, the leader of (G)I-DLE who is also the main songwriter and producer for the group, tells Billboard. “We are so thrilled and excited to meet our fans in the US We thank them for always supporting us even from far away. We are creating music and performances in our own unique (G)I-DLE way for them to enjoy.”
