How’s that old saying go again? “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” As many people have come to realize, this old statement is often easier said than done. While some many give up after only their second try, some champs like this member of K-pop band GFriend, really do continue to try until they finally get it.
This past Saturday, K-pop girl band GFriend performed in front of a large crowd of fans in South Korea. During the performance, one of the members proceeds to fall not once, not twice, but a painful five times. Really this girl should be applauded for her perseverance because one major fall on stage (and on video in this internet age) is embarrassing enough, but continue to push on through until the end after this marathon of falls is truly an act of bravery.
However, there’s a lot to observe and question in this short video. Perform their performance, one of the members can be seen kicking something off stage to clear her spot—presumably leftover confetti from a previous performance. Though it can be tricky to keep up with all the changes in the choreography, more than one member actually falls on stage—though the girl in the knee brace holds the record—which means that it’s not really any of the girls’ fault.
Regardless of these observations, and the momentary laughter this video brings on, there’s no denying that all of these girls deserve an award for making it through this rough performance.
