Golden Child (hangul: 골든차일드, also known as GNCD) is a rookie 10-member boygroup from Woollim Entertainment, home to INFINITE and LOVELYZ. Some members were initially introduced through 'W Project' — a series of predebut releases throughout early 2017 intended to introduce Woollim's new talents and trainees by showcasing their vocals, rap, and dance. They debuted on August 28, 2017 with 'DamDaDi (담다디)'. The group originally consisted of 11 members before former member Park Jaeseok decided to officially cease activities with the group on January 7, 2018 due to health issues and other personal reasons. The official fandom name is "GOLDENNESS".


» prior to debut, the boys were known as the "woollim boys" and many fans have been anticipating for their debut after some trainees became known to the public. they gained more popularity as trainees after appearing as backup dancers for infinite.

» fans thought their name was too long when it was first announced and have started calling them "golcha" for short which stemmed from 일드 (골 = gol, 차 = cha). jangjun made it canon by using it in episode 4 of woollimpick. this nickname soon became popularized.

» "googoo line" or "googoo child" consists of the four 99 liners: jaehyun, jibeom, donghyun and joochan.

» they currently have three rooms in their dorm and the arrangement is room 1: sungyoon, jangjun, youngtaek, seungmin | room 2: jaehyun, jibeom, donghyun, bomin | room 3: daeyeol | living room: joochan (source)
