The members of Gongjoonggeuneul are all friends who formed the band back in 2016, simply because they wanted to hang out together. Their lyrics are literary and their music takes influences from a wide variety of genres such as Psychedelic pop, rock, dream pop, synthpop, reggae etc. The band came up with their name by combining the name of a local venue with the word for shade (of the trees in their neighbourhood). These two spots are where the members like to hang out the most. Gongjoonggeuneul played their first ever show in 2017, since then they have been releasing regular demos as well as their first official single releases 'Keeper' (March 2018) and ‘The Line’ (May 2018). They have grabbed the attention of music lovers and are currently taking part in the EBS’ Hello Rookie program.
