GFRIEND have officially completed their promotions for ‘MAGO,’ the amazing lead single off of 回:Walpurgis Night. And we are going to miss their presence on music shows! This time around, they successfully challenged the concept of modern witches who express a bold and candid attitude towards their inner desires. GFRIEND wrapped up their final Korean music show on November 22nd with a perfect stage, wearing retro outfits and presenting their captivating performance.
Goodbye ‘回’ Series
回:Walpurgis Night marks the end of the ‘回’ series that started from 回:LABYRINTH through 回:Song of the Sirens, showing the pinnacle of the girls’ transformation as well as providing closure to their narrative of growth. We hate to see this trilogy end! But the act successfully pulled off limitless concepts with vivid styles and makeup looks we had not seen before, and it allowed them to express their desires honestly and confidently. And confidence is something we can get behind!
The album, 回:Walpurgis Night, was released on November 9th; the group received enthusiastic responses from fans for their further matured musicality. Buddies couldn’t stop yelling about how good the album was, and right after the album’s release, GFRIEND ranked No. 1 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart in seven countries/regions, which is unbelievable! GFRIEND truly deserves it all.
The fans’ favorite aspect about this album was that the sextet had active participation in the overall album-making process and demonstrated their musical accomplishments as artists. Members Eunha and Yuju participated in the lead single ‘MAGO.’ All members participated in the unit tracks, which they hadn’t done before. The track’s sing of bold and honest attitude towards one’s desires along with stories about love, daily lives in one’s twenties, and friendship between women. That’s truly something only GFRIEND can demonstrate!
What’s Next For GFRIEND?
Through 回:Walpurgis Night, GFRIEND illustrated to Buddies the story of girls, who can view themselves purely from their own perspectives after going through a series of choices and temptations. A concept we couldn’t get enough of. We and fans alike are anticipating what’s next for GFRIEND. Buddies are already keeping an eye out for what new exciting things they will show next. And before we get this new content, we have these five ‘Mago’ stages to keep us company!
