(G)I-DLE won several awards at the 2022 Melon Music Awards, or MMAs. Their song “Tomboy” won music video of the year, and their leader, Soyeon, won best songwriter and a top 10 artist award.
The group also got to play their singles from 2022 on stage. Neverland, which is (G)I-DLE‘s official fandom, will know that the chorus of “Tomboy” has a clear F-bomb, so the girls usually change or censor the word.
This time, (G)I-DLE was brave enough to sing the R-rated lyrics loud and clear. It was totally out of the blue and caught many idols in the crowd by surprise.
The jaws of LE SSERAFIM hit the floor, but they kept rocking out to the song. IVE couldn’t help but applaud their boldness after they overcame their surprise.
Sunoo of ENHYPEN couldn’t believe what he was hearing, but the other members of the group kept bobbing their heads to the beat.
Hyein of NewJeans covered her mouth in shock, but she went back to dancing with the rest of her group quickly.
(G)I-DLE is known as a group whose members aren’t afraid to say what they think and show how they feel, so this choice fits right in with their style.
