EXID's Solji opened up about her period of anonymity during her appearance on the July 19 installment of tvN's 'Taxi.'  


She was asked about the difficult period of being an unknown artist before EXID blew up a few years ago.  She replied, "There was a time in the past when I was a part of 2NB and I went to karaoke with representatives to show them my singing skills.  I could press the karaoke [song] numbers for the reps when they're singing, can't I?  I asked, 'Should I press this for you?' but I was rebuked with, 'Are you a karaoke assistant?'  At the time, I left the karaoke room and cried.  I was sad."

On top of that, she revealed, "Even when we greeted [popular juniors] first, they wouldn't receive [our greetings]," saying basically that they were ignored because they weren't as popular, even though they're senior artists and should have been the ones receiving the greetings first.  She suggested that the greetings are based more on popularity than actual seniority.


Solji concluded that their names would not even be on the waiting room door because they were nobodies.  


Well now those junior artists better greet you first!

Okay, THANKS for the correction on L.E. and not SOLJI that did squish HANI ... The EXID members 'get along' pretty well overall. It is like they 'stuck together' when they were 'down' and almost out. So NOW, the 'RIDE ON TOP' is pretty SWEET for *all* of the EXID members.

HANI deserves a *lot* of CREDIT for *SPREADING THE FOCUS* to *other* EXID members *shortly* after her PHARKIL FanCam went VIRAL. HANI was *quick* to point to OTHER EXID members as being VERY talented. I think perhaps that SOLJI did benefit most from it. Fans started looking at EXID and wondered 'Who IS that SINGER?' ... LE as song writer also did get ATTENTION too.

thats why any rookie or hoobae fan club who protects their idol for not giving their respect to sunbae either off or on curtain even if you are famous or not, are so senseless and dimwitted. even if u being ignored, please you are still under level. because your sunbae had face all those things before. so now its your turn.
