Global Icon( Hangul : 지아이; acronym : GI) is a South Korean girl group formed by Simtong Entertainment in 2013. The current line-up consists of Nayeon and Jiamin. They released their debut single "Beatles" on April 3, 2013.The group originally debuted with a "boyish" concept, referring to the fact that the majority of the members had short hair and a more masculine attitude and style, opposed to the feminine concepts many Korean pop girl groups have, but after their line-up changes, the group returned in 2015 with a feminine and sexy concept.
It was revealed that they would take on a fresh concept from that of the usual girl group:
We’re going to be different from the cute and sexy girl groups that come out almost once every week with our music and style. You can look forward to them.
The group released their debut single "Beatles" on April 3, 2013 along with its music video. They made their debut onShow Championthe same day.
This drew some criticism from fans, as the CF features the members dressed in fancy dresses, something which many took to mean that the group was straying from their original "boyish" concept.
and they were forced to go with "Giyeuk" as their comeback single instead.
This came after around two months of silence from Aram's social media accounts, right after coming back from promotion in Japan. Representative of SimTong Entertainment initially said to GI International Fanclub that "Aram’s withdrawal from GI and our agency is under discussion", but then revealed that "GI will stay as a 5 member group and instead of Aram, a new member will be added in her place." It was also announced that GI is preparing for a comeback with the new member, and she will be probably taking over Aram's position as main vocalist. Member Hayun uploaded a photo on Twitter on June 19 showing the girls practicing, including a shot of two unknown girls, who fans presumed to be the new members, although they were met with strong criticism when fans noticed that they were lip-syncing during live performances.
On November 14, 2014 it was revealed through the group's official page that Hayun had also left the group (in August of that year), leaving the group's future in doubt, although it was announced in January 2015 that the group would be making a comeback in that year.
