During the press conference for JTBC's 'Girl Spirit' on August 8, BESTie's U.JI again addressed the topic of her former girl group EXID.  She had debuted with the group with "Whoz That Girl," but left shortly after.  Following a brief respite, she debuted under BESTie with some of the other former members of EXID.


When asked, "'Supreme Leader-Dol' was mentioned for you on TV.  Also, you got first place, so how did you feel after the recording?" she replied, "I got first place for the first time in my life, so the members were happy for me."

She then addressed the interview when she talked about getting hate comments from fans claiming she betrayed EXID after the group did well.  She said, "Well for that interview, when we came out like this, many people said that we would think of EXID's success in a negative way.  However, if anything, we're very happy that they did well. We felt more refreshed inside and, even now, we sincerely support them.  I had no chance to say exactly that until now.  I think this is better than not saying anything at all."

Being an idol is really not easy... not that I have experience it.... but watching them seems to be so... Netizens should really just stop being netizens and try to think with critical minds ...

There's a show called Girl Spirit, a show between 12 Main/Lead Vocals of groups who are almost popular but underated like Bestie, Oh My Girl, WJSN etc, so she might have won on one of the eps and we shouldn't know it but Allkpop didn't freaking told that there was a spoiler in it

I wish people would stop putting U.Ji and EXID together and just look at her individually as the amazing singer she is. U.Ji hwaiting!

It was a mistake to say anything in the beginning but I'm sure she was just answering questions that were being asked. I haven't started watching Girl Spirit yet but from the premise of the show I thought it would be above creating drama like this.

She's addressing the haters who don't even understand the situation. She wanted to close on the topic and I think this is okay for her. I don't think she's going to bring it up again
