SONAMOO isn’t the only girl group that will be making their debut this month as talent agency Source Music, (home to GLAM, Kan Miyoun, 8eight, and Lee Hyun) has revealed that G-Friend, a 6-member girl group will make their grand entry onto Korean music scene soon.

According to Soompi, the 6-member girl group was supposed debut towards the end of last year. At that time, only 4 members were revealed: Shinbi, Eumbi, Yerin, and Sowon.

As seen in the group photo, G-Friend will make its debut on 15th Jan. Best known for his works on Orange Caramel’s and Ailee’s songs, songwriter Lee Ki Yong Bae will be working with the girls on their first-ever album.

Just like Woollim Entertainment’s Lovelyz, G-Friend is considered one of the youngest K-Pop girl groups because the average age of the group is 18 years old. Born in 1995, Sowon is surprisingly the oldest member of the group while SinB and Umji, born in 1998, are the youngest members of the group.
