(G)I-DLE debuted on May 2, 2018 and immediately gained attention with the release of their music video for Latata, written by Soyeon. She also contributed to the production of the title. The MV currently has over 100 million views on Youtube.
Cube Entertainment - (G)I-DLE's company - hasn't released many products since the group's debut. Nevertheless, we managed to find a few articles which I hope you will find interesting.
The group consists of six members - Soyeon, Miyeon, Soojin, Minnie, Yuqi, and Shuhua . Soyeon is probably the most well-known member as she participated in the first season of the survival show Produce 101 and later was a contestant on the show Unpretty Rapstar. She is a lyricist and has contributed to many of the band's songs. She is also the leader of the group and the main rapper. Miyeon trained for 5 years under YG Entertainment while Soojin prepared to become a member of girl group Vivivida under DN Entertainment. Yuqi was born in Beijing as Song Yu Qi. She is one of the faces of the group. Shuhua was born in Taiwan and is the maknae of (G)I-DLE .
The group officially debuted with the extended play I Am in 2018. They received their first music show win with Latata just 20 days after the debut. On August 14, the girls returned with their digital single Hann. The song became a hit topping various charts like Genie and Bugs.
On February 26, the group released their second long play I Made and the music video for Senorita. The song was written and composed (with Big Sancho) by Soyeon.
The first is a slogan - a must-have item for any fan of a KPop group. The slogan size is 800mm x 200mm. It features a white (G)I-DLE logo in the middle and member names on both sides on a purple background. It comes in a clear reusable plastic pouch.
Initially, I had not planned to address the subject of year-end greetings in one of the artist's pages. I wanted to prepare a special section containing only this type of collectibles. But the lack of any other (G)I-DLE merchandise I could talk about made me change my mind. So here we are. Still, there's not much in the package here, contrary to the band's other wishes. There is only one wall calendar available. It has 12 pages and obviously you can use it for all 12 months of 2019. The size of the calendar is 297mm x 420mm. It was distributed by 101X.
Interestingly, this year, Cube Entertainment decided to release more modest Christmas greetings for almost all of its artists, including Pentagon, CLC, and Yoo Seon Ho. Only BtoB got a proper release with a poster, a photo book, greeting cards and a wall calendar.
The third piece of merchandise I want to cover is a 2018 UCUBE Cube On Behind photobook released to commemorate Cube Entertainment's third family concert which took place on June 16, 2018 in Seoul. The 200-page photobook covers behind-the-scenes photos taken during the production of Cube's artists' recent albums - I Am by (G)I-DLE, Feel'eM by BtoB, Lip & Hip by Hyuna, Spring by Yoo Seon Ho, Demo_02 by Pentagon, Lonely by Jo Kwon and Free'sm by CLC.
