It was the imminent announcement of their new girl group!
Back in the middle of October, I brought you the story that allkpop was working on their own new girl group and now the day of the announcement has finally arrived, as allkpop is set to break the news in about five hours time!
The new idol group of five girls is called New.F.O and it should be interesting to track the reactions to this announcement from netizens, both international and domestic.
New.F.O’s names are JN, Mima, Soyi, Narae, and Dana. Word is that the initial music video teaser puts the girls dancing in the middle of New York‘s Times Square, but we already know they were in Hollywood at one point, so you can speculate on a location change in future teasers.
The new girl group claims to excel in the aspects of visuals, singing, dance, and even production. Additionally, they are claiming to have received the praise of Lady Gaga and have mentioned that Japan and America are already interested in having them advance into their markets.
Extraordinary claims, so I guess we’ll have to hope the results will back the attitude!
One thing’s for sure though, since the group’s name is clearly a play on “U.F.O”, and with the last two letters in the acronym being “F” and “O”, there will be plenty of independently generated nicknames for the group.
For better or worse, it’ll be interesting to monitor all of this stuff as it goes down.
