Just like A.De who’s riding on Produce 101 hype, Jellyfish Entertainment also debuted their own girl group recently under the name GX9 or Gugudan (구구단), which means Multiplication Table in Korean. Catchy name, huh?
Gugudan is a 9 member girl group with 3 popular members from Produce 101, Kim Sejeong and Kang Mina managed to debut as I.O.I while Kim Nayeong got eliminated in the later round. Kim Sejeong ranked 2 after Jeon Somi (JYP).
Gugudan – Wonderland
The MV featured an underwater school where the members live in some kind of dorm, and they’re planning a play performance about mermaid. The title Act.1 The Little Mermaid implying that Wonderland is the beginning of a bigger concept.
Wonderland is actually a better pop song compared to releases from other groups with similar concept, but sadly it’s not what the public wants. It’s too safe and lacking quirkiness.
I also wonder why Jelpi didn’t put Sejeong as the leader/ face of the group, since she already has a sizable fanbase.
