On the August 2 broadcast of 'Girl Spirit,' group B prepared for and showcased their individual stages. 


The first contestant to show off her stuff was BESTie's U.JI. Before U.JI stepped on the stage, the idol opened up about her brief time in EXID and her trainee days. 


U.JI said, "I was a trainee for four years starting when I was 19 with the goal of debuting [as a singer]. I debuted under EXID in 2012 and promoted for one month. But I eventually left that company. I decided that I'd never be a singer again."

The idol continued, "I thought it'd be impossible for me to be a singer. But regret remained inside me. That's when I realized. That I'm desperate to be a singer. So I debuted again under BESTie. In the beginning, there were no comments. But when EXID succeeded, they said I betrayed [EXID] and called me 'turncoat.' I read all the hate comments.


U.JI ended on a positive note, saying, "After I fulfilled my dream, there were more positives to offset the hard times. I was especially close to Hani. Save for the times we slept, we spent all our time together. I hope that people will view BESTie and EXID separately."

Ignore those haters please. They're the so-called EXID fans, who only started stanning them after Hani's fancam. I'm sure they don't even know the songs from before 2014.

She didn't leave because of any dramma between the members. She and the BESTie members left because AB Entertainment was a terrible company that wasn't treating them right. Junghwa, Hani, and LE couldn't leave because they were signed under a different management contract, but they DID leave later along with Solji and Hyerin.

I personally much prefer BESTie to EXID so I don't care if she's a traitor or not

So when EXID was just another unsuccessful group, no one cared that she left. All of a sudden they get popular, and the fans call her a traitor? That makes no sense. It seems the fans are being hypocritical.

Actually, as a fan of BESTie since debut, people have been calling her a traitor ever since her, Haeryoung, and Hyeyeon announced they were joining BESTie. She just altered the story a bit to make it more dramatic and sympathetic.

Those fans only became fans after Hani's fancam.

I don't she was a traitor... she just lost confidence.... that's what happens when you think so much about the future and only see an apocalyptic ending... She can start all over and do what she can now that she's in Bestie...

No, the reason you're coming out and making this statement is because of REGRET. You missed your shot as a member of one of the most recognized girl groups in kpop. Need more salt on that burn?

the debut Exid with 8 members was a joint group by two companys and the two companys decided to go there separate ways which led to exid being 5 and the other 3 girls becoming bestie. She never betrayed exid their companies decided to split them up exid and bestie are very close friends.

Actually, EXID was 6 members with Hani, LE, Junghwa and some of the BESTie members with Uji. But then the company broke up and caused them to split. Uji, Hyeyeon, and Haeryoung were forced to leave EXID and formed BESTie. Then EXID added Solji and Hyerin.
