US Neverland, how are we feelin’? That was a rhetorical question, of course. How could you possibly feel after finding out that our girls are planning to focus more on the US market except amazing?
Today, September 23, Billboard published an article about (G)I-DLE’s future plans. In the article, which you can read here, we found out that Cube Entertainment realized that only sky is the limit for Miyeon, Soyeon, Minnie, Shuhua, Yuqi and Soojin and that they should share their talent with the rest of the world more actively.
This new west-bound focus can be attributed to Cube Entertainment’s newly established partnership with e2PR Strategic Communications PR agency.
According to that same article, (G)I-DLE “is readying an American-focused rollout with their new music, singles, videos and U.S. shows”. What they meant by that exactly, only time will tell.
What we do know is that the girls are in the process of preparing their third mini album, and they have a comeback scheduled for the end of October as part of their participation in Mnet’s show Queendom. (If you’re behind on the show, you can read our recaps right here – ep. 1, ep. 2, ep. 3 and ep. 4.)
In other news, the girls held their first official fanmeeting yesterday, September 22. The event was announced back in August and it was sold out in under an hour, an achievement some other more experienced groups can’t brag about. Judging by the reactions over on Twitter, the girls absolutely killed it. They sang, danced and talked to the fans.
It seems like the girls were equally as thrilled to meet the fans as the fans were to meet them.
The birthday girl Yuqi also took to Twitter to thank Neverland for all the birthday wishes and coming to meet them.
Thank you so much for your birthday wishes! Thanks to Neverland I am so happy. Now I am officially 20 years old.
Getting the chance to meet Neverland was the happiest moment of my life.
Let’s be happy together for a very long time.
I will try hard to become an even better Yuqi for you.
I love you.
Just look at her! She’s the most adorable person ever.
