(G)I-DLE ((여자)아이들) is a six-member girl group under Cube Entertainment. They debuted on May 2,2018 with their first mini album I Am.
In an interview with The Star, the leader of the group, Jeon So-yeon, revealed that the name “Idle” (아이들) came to her when she was composing the Idle Song. She sent it to the company and the name was finalized after going through the company’s competition. However, the name received mixed reactions in South Korea and internationally because “아이들” means “children” and “idle” in English refers to someone who avoids work. The group was thus renamed (G)I-dle, with the “I” standing for individuality, “‐” to show that the name has been divided into two parts and “Dle” as the plural form of “I” in Korean, meaning a group of six different personalities gathered together.
