[EXCLUSIVE] (G)I-DLE looking forward to meet NEVERLANDs in Malaysia & Singapore

Friday, August 07, 2020

On 3 August, (G)I-DLE released their new summer single, ‘DUMDi DUMDi’.

As of 7 August, ‘DUMDi DUMDi' has surpassed 1 million streams on the korean digital streaming platform, GENIE. Of course, (G)I-DLE’s success extends beyond their domestic popularity! Internationally, ‘DUMDi DUMDi’ has soared to the top in the iTunes Top Songs Chart in 41 regions, namely, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and more. As of today, the official music video has already reached over 40 million views. With barely 3 years since their debut, (G)I-DLE has showed tremendous potential to excel in the future as one of the biggest girl groups in the K-pop industry.

The pleasant girls of (G)I-DLE took time off their busy schedules to answer questions from the GOKPOP team.
When asked to describe the new summer single ‘DUMDi DUMDi’ which differs from the usual powerful and strong image of the girls, Miyeon responded, “‘DUMDi DUMDi’ is a refreshing song that will blow this heat away. The lyrics address our youth and passion, which are just like summer.” It has only been less than a week since the release of ‘DUMDi DUMDi’ and we are already addicted to the melodious tune and catchy lyrics!
Intrigued by Soyeon’s never-ending concept-generating for (G)I-DLE, we had to know her muse this time when producing for the new release! Of course, the leader of (G)I-DLE charmingly answered, “the 23-year-old me.” She also mentioned her goal to ingrain the words ‘DUMDi DUMDi’. Indeed, Soyeon is one genius producer!
Shuhua also commented that through the preparations for the comeback, the girls had dance practices every day. Even though the choreography changed little by little and she recalled struggling for a few days, it was a memorable episode of the comeback preparation for the youngest member of (G)I-DLE. You truly worked hard, Shuhua!
(G)-IDLE has also successfully completed their 1st online concert recently! With this being their first concert since debut, we were curious about how the girls felt meeting NEVERLANDs (affectionate name for the fans of (G)I-DLE) virtually. Soojin stated, “We were upset that we couldn’t actually meet, but the chat let us communicate with our fans in real time, so it was fun.” I am 502% sure NEVERLANDs feel the same way!
When questioned what the members of (G)I-DLE are most looking forward to apart from making their comeback, Yuqi expressed that they are always looking forward to the chance to meet NEVERLAND up close. NEVERLANDs are also anticipating the day we can meet the girls again!
Regarding the plans and goals for this comeback, Minnie conveyed that (G)I-DLE’s goal is for everyone to enjoy this summer by listening to ‘DUMDi DUMDi’ and cheer up during these struggling times. “Although we can’t meet NEVERLAND in real life, we hope this song will make everyone feel better.” As expected from the sweet and kind-hearted girls of (G)-IDLE! 

Message to NEVERLAND in Malaysia and Singapore 

Miyeon: Dear NEVERLAND in Malaysia and Singapore! We hope things will get better in the near future so we can get to see you soon. (G)I-DLE will visit you for sure! Stay healthy until then!

Yuqi: Thank you so much for always waiting for us and supporting us! We will give our best efforts. We hope to find a way to meet you up close shortly so we can see you soon. Love you!
