여자친구 (yeojachingu), also known as GFRIEND, is a six-member South Korean girl group formed by Source Music in 2015. The group consists of Sowon, Yerin, Eunha, Yuju, SinB and Umji.
They made their debut with the extended play Season of Glass on January 15, 2015. GFRIEND is the winner of several 2015 female rookie awards and has garnered a lot of momentum since their debut, despite coming from a small company.
On July 23, 2015, they released their second extended play Flower Bud. The title track for the album was "오늘부터 우리는 (Me Gustas Tu)". They started album promotions on the same day of the album release on M! Countdown. During the promotional period for "오늘부터 우리는 (Me Gustas Tu)", GFRIEND garnered a lot of attention. A fan-taken video went viral showing the GFRIEND members continuing a performance despite slipping and falling down numerous times. They were praised for their professionalism regarding these incidents despite being a rookie group.

They won a total of fifteen music show awards for "Rough". On June 29, Source Music started teasing for GFRIEND's first studio album LOL.
