No matter if you’re a fan of the irresistible force of the Tsundere SinB or an admirer of the ditzy yet mysterious Eunha, the month of May had some really upsetting news in store for Gfriend fans. At the height of success having released the massively popular single Mago as the follow up to a string of successful releases and hits during the past years, the Kpop equivalent of Donna Tartts Secret History: Gfriend, abruptly announced that the 6 year old group had disbanded and left Source Music, the now subsidiary of Big Hit Entertainment of BTS fame. What the heck happened?
Are the fans going crazy? Constipated from eating a double serving of spicy rice cakes? Are they going to invade the stage and rip the performers to neat but bloody pieces because of some complicated Korean societal infraction? Has “netizens” infiltrated the audience and are preparing to collectively shun the artists?
