Berry Good (Hangul베리굿; RRBeri Gut) is a South Korean girl group formed by Asia Bridge Entertainment in 2014. The group's current line-up consists of Taeha, Johyun, Seoyul, Daye, Sehyung and Gowoon. They released their debut single Love Letter in May 2014.

History[edit]

2014-2015: Debut with Love Letter and line-up changes[edit]

Berry Good at the 2015 Seoul Fashion Week, on March 22, 2015.

Berry Good debuted on May 21, 2014, with the music video for "Love Letter", a remake of the song released by Click-B in 2000.[1][2][3] The eponymous single was released the following day,[4] when they also started promotions on M! Countdown.[5]

In January 2015, Asia Bridge Entertainment stated that Subin, Iera and Nayeon had left the group to concentrate on their studies,[6] and introduced new member Seoyul,[7][8] followed by Daye and Sehyung.[9][10][11]

Their second single Because of You was released on February 9.[12][13][14] They started promotions on February 10 on SBS MTV's The Show.[15] In June, their representative office launched various Berry Good goods (such as accessories, clothes and cosmetics) in China.[16]

On September 23, their third single My First Love was released.[17] Two music videos were produced, one of which features actress Kim Bo-ra. The song, posthumous work of composer Joo Tae-young, was first performed in advance on September 20 at Hallyu Dream Concert,[18][19] and promotions started on September 22 on The Show.[20]

2016-2017: Very Berry, new member Johyun and Glory[edit]

Berry Good in 2016.

On March 11, Berry Good launched a crowdfunding campaign to produce their first EP on Makestar. The ₩10-million goal was reached in ten days[21][22] and the campaign ultimately raised ₩16,084,438, 160.8% of its original goal. On April 20, the crowdfunded mini-album Very Berry, led by title track "Angel", was released.[23]

Their following release was crowdfunded on Makestar as well.[24] The project started on September 1 as a new single, but it was later upgraded to a mini album,[25][26] and ended raising ₩26,896,790, 268.97% of its original 10-million goal. The group also added a sixth member, Johyun.[27] Three out of four songs from the EP, including the lead track "Don't Believe", were showcased on Arirang Radio's K-poppin' one day before their release.[28] The official music video for "Don't Believe", and the group's second mini album Glory, were released on November 1.[29]

A third Makestar project was launched on March 9, 2017[30] to finance their sixth digital single "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo". While the song was released on April 16, its music video was uploaded to the group's YouTube channel the day after.[31] To promote "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo", Berry Good adopted a "part-timer concept", experiencing part-time works between schedules and sending proceeds to the needy.[32] On June 9, they performed three songs at the Thống Nhất Stadium of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.[33]

2018-present: First unit and first full album[edit]

Taeha, Sehyung and Gowoon debuted in the group's first sub-unit, Berry Good Heart Heart, on April 27, 2018, releasing their first single "Crazy, Gone Crazy".[34][35] On August 16, the group made a comeback with their first full album Free Travel,[36] that they had been recording since August 2017.[37] They commemorated the release through a showcase held that afternoon at Ilji Art Hall in Cheongdam-dong.[38][39] After promoting the lead single "Green Apple", in September they went on with second single "Mellow Mellow", but Sehyung couldn't participate due to an ankle fracture.[40]

Image and musical style[edit]

Teaser video for "Don't Believe".

Berry Good doesn't have a fixed basic image, but they change it for every release.[41] They started their career with dance tracks,[42] before releasing their first ballad "My First Love" in September 2015. To promote "Don't Believe" in November 2016, Berry Good underwent a change of styling and concept to take off the original girlish, neat and pure image,[43] adding EDM and tropical house elements to their music.[28]
