The multinational girl group Nature snagged a rookie award at the 2018 Soribada Best K-Music Awards, having gained significant attention with its debut single “Allegro Cantabile.”

“We feel so honored and grateful for giving us such a big award in less than a month since our debut,” said the band’s leader, Lu, upon receiving the prize at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Jamsil, Seoul, Thursday.

“We’d like to thank our fans and our agency families for their unwavering support.”

One of the band’s Chinese members, Gaga, said, “I’ve never imagined receiving such a big prize and I still can’t believe it. We’ll take it as a support and use it as an impetus to keep making efforts.” Other members also had tears in their eyes as they thanked fans.


Additional rookie awards went to Stray Kids, a new boy group under JYP Entertainment, and IZ, a teen pop band under Music K Entertainment. Wanna One and Pentagon won rookie awards last year.

Since its launch under n.CH Entertainment on Aug. 3 with the upbeat debut EP, “Girls and Flowers,” fronted by “Allegro Cantabile,” Nature has built a considerable international following through active social media engagement and busking performances. The band’s nine members are from Korea, Japan and China and pursue a musical sound that is as comfortable as nature’s pure healing power, the band’s agency said.
