EXID recently made their comeback with a few new changes to the group including two new members and a change in image.
In place of the departures of Yuji, Haeryung, and Dami came Solji and Hyerin. Their latest release, ‘Hippity Hop‘, shows the level of maturity the girls have grown into since their debut release, ‘Whoz That Girl‘, back in February. Fortunately, the girls were able to overcome the shortcomings of their debut and the loss of three members to come out as a better team.
Leader Solji stated, “People might think that we faced a crisis with the change of members, but it wasn’t like that at all. I’ve been with Hyerin in this agency for a while so there’s no awkwardness between us.”
Maknae Junghwa added with a laugh, “Solji unni is like our mom. She takes care of us well, so it’s hard not to follow her lead.”
Following their change in members, the group headed to the United States for a short break before their comeback. “We had a fun vacation, touring places like Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Hollywood, Death Valley, and the Great Salt Lake Desert.”
Now that they’re all rested up and refreshed, the girls are determined to work even harder than ever. On their title track, “I Feel Good“, they stated, “Our music has gotten a lot brighter compared to our debut, as it’s music you can jump around and dance to.”
LE actually composed and wrote the song “Call“, based on her past experiences with an ex-boyfriend, which Hani picked as her favorite track off the album.
Concluding the interview, EXID expressed, “We’re already preparing for our next release after this mini-album. We think we’re going to work hard without any breaks for a while.”
