Solji :(((( Her health comes first, I'm glad the company is not pushing her, I hope she feels better!

2017 was an AMAZING year for Exid, their mini albums were perfection so I'm excited what 2018 has in store for them. I love the progression Exid has made over the years :)

That sucks that Solji's not ready to comeback yet, but I understand. :( I just hope the fans remain strong and support them. I don't feel the quality of their music has decreased at all since she went on hiatus, but the apparent lack of a budget for the DDD video made me a bit worried. Esp. because they actually have concerts and I thought those plus Hani's solo schedule would be bringing in steady money.

If these numbers are remotely accurate, they've been on a bit of a downward trajectory since Hot Pink unfortunately =/

I mean they still do very, very well of course lol but I think they need another crowd pleasing song soon if they want to keep the public's attention in a post-Twice world.

Yeah, I mean I knew they'd declined somewhat since their U&D/Ah Yeah days which is to be expected, but I'd hoped their fandom was decent enough that they could stabilize a bit. Now that almost every 2nd gen gg is inactive I'm desperate to hold onto "sexy"/mature concept group we have lol.

And ita, they definitely need something as good or better than DDD to grab the public's attention. And please change up the chord progression in the chorus lol.

I actually couldn't sleep last night so I was looking at how girl group sales are going on wiki for some reason lol...I agree that Exid is losing popularity but they have a steady fanbase so that's good. I kind of view them like Apink and Girls Day in the regard, they're not what's hot anymore but their sales are still quite impressive - I was actually surprised Apink and Girl's Day sales were pretty good since their comebacks (while I enjoyed them) didn't really make a splash in the pool of kpop lol

Other random observations - wow Aoa had quite a drop from Heart Attack to Good Luck (I'm guessing the scandal at the time affected them) and these new gen girl groups.....yikes. If you're not one of the big 3, it's not looking good at all :(

Their last two minis were pretty wonderful. I actually loved DDD. But I kind of hope their next single has a male feature on it.

Street, as an entire album, was amazing too. And god no. One thing I like about EXID is that the production is so good and the girls play so well off of each other that they don't feel like they need a feature. Especially not a feature from a dude.

I'm a little bit glad they're coming back so quickly this time rather than waiting a long time and hoping Solji will be ready - they can keep up public interest and hopefully this relieves a little pressure from Solji. the pessimist in me wonders if this is another step on the road to Solji withdrawing but we'll see. Excited for a new bop!
dior_chic 13th-Mar-2018 12:12 pm (UTC)
Yea...I've accepted that fact if Solji leaves, I'll be ok with it - just like Jine from OMG. I don't want to see her leave, but I know she's going through a lot and if she chooses to leave I only want the best for her.

tbh I thought her participating in the previous album tracks would mean a step to coming back into the fold, but if she's not back by the next comeback I'm resigned to the fact that she won't be in EXID anymore too

so excited! hopefully solji will come back someday, but always concentrate on your health first <3

I hope Solji gets better soon ;(

I can always count on EXID for quality content. Looking forward to supporting my girls.
