  • dying inside™️

    The reason that U-JI, Hyeyeon, and Haeryung is a bit unclear, but this is what I’ve heard.

    Okay, so JYP was training a girl group in 2010, but it disbanded before debut and all four girls left the company. Hyolyn and Jieun went on to join SISTAR and SECRET, which left Hani and Yuji. Yuji found a new company. It didn’t have any groups yet, but with the support of Shinsadong Tiger, they promised Yuji that she would debut. She was asked to find more members to join the group, so she contacted Hani, who was studying in China and she signed with Shinsadong Tiger. Junghwa and Haeryung both joined Shinsadong Tiger and the new company. The group was joined by rapper LE and Hyeyeon, who was already training under the new company and a six member EXID debuted.
    However, they were swept with plagiarizing contiversies and so the group went in a 3 : 3 split- Yuji, Hyeyeon, and Haeryung with the new company, and Hani, Junghwa, and LE with Shinsadong Tiger. It all depended to who they were signed to and they didn’t want to.
    EXID added Hyerim, who had made it through the predebut process but failed to make it in, and Solji, who was their vocal trainer and they came back as five.
    The new company added trainee Dahye and we got four member BESTie.

    thanks for explaining this


    I have the same birthday as Haeryung!

  • The rumors told below by dying inside (a split of the group because of different contracts) swept through the net for some years now; this information goes back to one single article in the web, whose author never gave proof of the truth of this story… but it is strictly contrary to what the members of both groups told then and still tell today … they say, that U-ji (than called Yuji), Haeryung and Dami were uncomfortable with the experience they made in the four weeks of the debut promotion and left because they were in doubt about their future as k-pop singers and dancers … later in the year they found they had made a mistake and their passion for k-pop was greater as they thought and they returned to the business…. Shinsadong Tiger’s new founded company AB Entertainment was always short of money and was nearly burnt out after the first year of EXID which not brought the revenues back which were needed, the girls had to change from there comfortable loft in Gangnam to a bunk on the other side of the river … the management seemingly was a mess, Shinsadong Tiger is a genius in regard of producer qualities but not a business man of even qualities… there are a lot of reasons why the girls saw the future cloudy at this time … and not to forget: 2012 was the first year with a huge output of new k-pop girlgroups (35) … in the following years this was topped year after year but then back in 2012 it was a shocking growth of fierce competition… you could get doubts whether the market would bear this approach of new performers (and indeed a great part of the newbies failed and not always, because they were poor of skills, but only by bad fortune)

  • In regard of the rumors about a split of the group EXID after debut end of March 2012: what kind of plagiat accusation this should be? which song was subject of this accusations? EXID performed all her songs without an hiatus ’till today, including their debut song “Whoz that girl”… next: what should be the advantage of a split like this for the companies involved? they both would have risḱed a lot of money, the whole investment from may 2011 to March 2012 … and why started BESTie under YNB Entertainment, when they signed before obscure contracts with an mysterious obscure firm, which ripped them out of the group they had trained and practiced with and where their girlfriends were left (Uji and Hani are good friends till today)? Why should the girls be distributed in such a weird way on two agencies? And why waited the second company for more than a year with a comeback of their girls while the chaotic Shinsadong Tiger could achieve this comeback in less than four months? no, this story is so ill constructed, that the companies involved never saw a reason even to demend it. Do you believe all six girls could lye about such a conspiration which overshadowed their lifes for years … ?

  • A last add-up to this topic: you can find in some sources the name of a second company involved in the launch up of EXID, called Benjamin Entertainment. It seems they broke with Shinsadong Tiger’s AB Entertainment at an early stage, which may be one cause for AB’s financial problems…. this may be another point which scared the three girls, who left the group, and it may be the reason why they could even dissolve their contracts (as one contract partner on the other side was gone also) … this may be the point where the mentioned rumors have their roots (and as we don’t know what the reason behind this conflict was, the squabbling around copyright and something like this may be part of this)

  • By the way, my bias in regard of the BESTie members (if any, I’m an OT4 at the ground of my heart) is Dami/Hyeyeon … U-ji was the greatest loss for the young group EXID ,because Uji was the centerpiece and backbone of the group, who brought in Hani, Jeonghwa and Haeryeong, but on Dami the eyes focussed in the chorus line …

  • aurelle
