On October 28, South Korean girl group GFRIEND sat down with some members of the press before joining N.Flying, Cosmic Girls, and NCT 127 for KPOP Republic 2.

When asked to describe their Filipino fans with just a single word, group leader Sowon started off by answering with “mango”, explaining how their fans (officially called Buddy) are sweet and make them happy just like the said fruit. Eunha talked about how Filipino Buddies always welcome them with “passion” and Yerin followed this up with a “thank-you”. SinB continued to describe their fans as “lovely” while youngest member Umji remarked “amazing”. Lastly, Yuju captured her impression of their fans into “energy”.

The audience did greet them with feverish energy once they set foot onstage later that night to perform hits like “Navillera”, “Love Whisper”, “Summer Rain”, “Rough”, and “Me Gustas Tu”.

KPOP Republic 2 was presented by All Access Productions, who also organised Super Pop Con earlier this year.
