The members debuted in 2015 under Source Music. The KPop group consisted of six members: Sowon, Yuju, Eunha, Yerin, SinB and Umji. Their first album was Season Of Glass and the title song Glass Bead. GFriend ultimately disbanded in May of 2021 after their contracts expired.
The girls has released several interesting collections of GFriend merchandise for their showcases and concert tours. That includes two versions of their official light stick.
The first tour of GFriend began with the domestic concerts in Seoul on January 6 and 7, 2018 that were held at the Olympic Hall. 6000 people attended the events. The ticket sales opened a little bit earlier for the members of the official fan club (December 6) than the general public (December 8). The tickets sold out in just 3 minutes. The girls continued the tour visiting New Taipei City in Taiwan, Osaka and Tokyo in Japan, Quezon City in Philippines and Hong Kong. The tour concluded with two additional encore dates in Seoul.
25 items were prepared for the fans to purchase at the concerts. One additional collectible - a life-size pillow - was supposed to be available at the venue but Source Music ultimately decided not to release it. After the list of the GFriend merchandise was announced some of the fans raised a concerns that the pillow with imprinted images of the members of the group reminds them of a Japanese "love pillows" called "dakimakura". The item was 1800 mm long and 600 mm wide and six variants were supposed to be sold (each with one GFriend member). On December 30 - one day after the list was revealed - the company of the group released a statement in which we can read that they decided not to produce and sell the item. Although there is a possibility that the item might have been already manufactured and the company actually had to just destroy the whole lot (the concerts began just 6 days after the statement was released).
The collection starts with the first version of the official light stick of the group called Glass Marble Stick. It was named after the debut song Glass Bead that I've mentioned before. It's in a shape of a marble and is filled with a fluid and glitter. It features the GFriend's logo inside. The size of the item is 80 x 80 x 245 mm. In the package you will find six special photo cards with the members wearing a crowns. If you like the shape of it you will find a mini light stick key ring interesting. The accessory is 50 mm wide and 120 mm long.
Next we have an acrylic stand with the silhouette of each member. It comes in two versions - A or B. Version A features the photos from the same photoshoot as the full-size pillow so if you can certainly buy it instead. The size of the stand is 60 x 150 mm.
