EXID's Solji showed off her new place on the May 12 installment of JTBC's 'Old House New House'!

On this day, she reminisced about her earlier days as a singer, when things did not go as well and she was not as successful.  She said, "Before EXID, I first debuted through 2NB. Around when the contract of 2NB expired, I thought that I shouldn't be a singer.  Because I was getting older, but unable to make money.  

"While doing that for five to six years, I had only made 600,000 KRW (~ 511 USD).  I only received about 600,000 KRW, I think.  I felt sorry toward my mother.  I ended up changing to a vocal trainer, and then joined EXID as the member in charge of the high parts."

Yay for things working out!

Only 500 over 5/6 years? What kind of horrid contract was that?

This part irritates me ' I thought that I shouldn't be a singer.  Because I was getting older, but unable to make money'You should have the oppurtunty to be a singer at any age and you should do it because its your passion not for money.

She was making $511 in 5-6 years. Im all about passion. But in the end a career is mainly done for a living.$511!!! Cant believe you said that <_<

Slave contracts ain't no joke.

So much exploitation and low human rights for a developed country

Agree. It's really no surprise that bullying gets so much press over there. It happens from the very top on down in personal life and in business. With all their economic growth they still have a ways to go when it comes to that mentality.

but in 2nb's case it was prolly due to the fact that they didnt sell anything at all kinda.
