Umji, who was born in 1998, was only 16-years-old (American age) at the time of this video and the group’s official debut. Her youth could be felt through these nostalgic videos, as her adorable baby face that the nation fell in love with was showcased throughout the clip.
Just look at her and her adorable cheeks!
She ended her post with a photo that was dated back to January 16, 2015, which is just one day after their official debut date.
GFRIEND fans could not help but express their sadness while watching the 6-year-old clip of a young Umji during the group’s beginning days.
Previously, GFRIEND and their agency Source Music confirmed that all 6-members would be leaving the company after almost a decade together. While a disbandment was neither confirmed nor denied, GFRIEND fans have been left heartbroken after the news. Umji’s nostalgic post was uploaded just a week after the group’s sudden news went public, igniting an even sadder response from their fans.
In the midst of all the sorrow, Umji and her fellow GFRIEND members have been uploading their gratitude towards their fans onto their respective Instagram accounts.
