220117 – fromis_9 makes a bold confession of love with ‘DM’

Excerpt:

‘Leading the album is “DM,” a pop genre with a faint, nostalgic chord progression with a funky bass line.

“The song is a lionhearted confession of love made by fromis_9 after they successfully venture into the night,” Park Ji-won said, adding the letters stand for “Doesn’t Matter,” highlighting the girls’ daring attitude to win their love.’

220118 – fromis_9 Talks About Their Latest Comeback, The Pressure Of Being HYBE’s Only Girl Group, And More

Excerpt:

‘After fromis_9’s move to Pledis Entertainment and the disbandment of GFRIEND under Source Music, fromis_9 is currently the only girl group signed under HYBE Labels. Lee Saerom said, “Of course we feel a sense of pressure at having such a huge agency’s name attached to us, but we tried to think of the pressure as a driving force to make fromis_9’s color stronger.”

Asked if anything had changed since their management change, Song Hayoung said, “[The founder of Pledis] had been producing us from our debut until now, but now there’s a lot of wide support in other areas too, so it feels like we’re working together with him in heart and mind as well. And it made us ambitious about making a fresh start.”

Roh Jisun said, “Producing director [PD] Han Sung Soo worked on this album just as he worked with us ever since our debut. When ‘Talk & Talk’ got a good reception after our move, the members’ teamwork became stronger and we became more excited to make our next comeback.”’

Interviews

220118 – fromis_9 talk about being motivated by pressure and working on their new mini-album ‘Midnight Guest’: “We will strive to make 2022 the year of fromis_9.”

Excerpt:

Q: It’s almost been four years since you debuted. How do you feel you’ve all grown as artists and as friends?

Nagyung: The past four years have truly felt like a gift and one I enjoyed every moment of. I have definitely grown through the wide range of challenges we faced over those years, and I am motivated to show more diverse sides of ourselves as artists moving forward.

With our members, our bond has grown stronger together as partners and simultaneously as each other’s closest friends. The sense of belonging and stability derived from our relationship is my favorite part of being in fromis_9.’
