i'm always skeptical of these kind of general overview of k-pop documentaries that lump all the artists together as though there were exactly the same. i also hope they don't mention them alongside burning sun. burning sun deserves its own documentary that talks about misogyny throughout different parts of society that made it possible and not just being mentioned in passing in a k-pop documentary

Lol I saw quite a few antis salty over this on twitter. I hope this doc is well-researched, doesn’t paint them in a negative light, and shows how hard working and talented they are! If they do all that, this doc will be a great opportunity for them.

I hope it's a serious documentary that will thoroughly explain who they are and what they do instead of putting them together with other issues in kpop. There's a lot to say about GFriend - like how they had decent hype and connection despite being a new agency, how they successfully used a viral video, how they went back from a less successful moment, etc. I hope it can help them get new i-fans too

I cross my fingers they use the slipping/falling viral video which in my opinion catapulted them to the public eye. As a fan, I hate that they had to go through that (damn event organizers), but I can't help but laugh every time I see it.

But they girls are also extremely hard working. I hope we get some behind the scenes looks at practices including vocal training. We will seeee

The BBC documentary with 9muses was actually really good and well-made, so I hope they do a good job again this time.

edit: Gfriend is an odd choice though - they haven't even performed in Europe yet and I think they have a bigger fanbase in Asia than in Europe. BTS, Blackpink, Got7, Monsta X or any other artists that regularly perform in Europe would have been a better choice imo.

maybe they chose them because they aren't as popular in Europe. Maybe they don't have to pay them as much to appear in the documentary compared to the other more popular acts and it would be in the company's interest to go along with the documentary promo. Help them get a foot in the door kind of thing.

I wonder if their interview is part of a larger overall Kpop documentary because yesterday a tweet came across my timeline from SM saying the BBC was interviewing SM CEO Lee Soo Man.

Probably... but then it'll be the typical mellow PR Q&A. I wish they would interview someone that'll spill the tea.
