EXID members profile: Names, age, bios, who left

EXID is a South Korean girl group formed in 2012. It is made up of five members, namely Hani, Jung Hwa, LE, Hyelin, and Solji. Before they rose to fame, the group met in somewhat unfamiliar ways and went through the toughest of odds to break through the South Korean entertainment industry. Initially, there were six EXID members. However, three of them left the group after some time. When Hyelin and Soji joined the band, the number of members upped to five, which is actual now.

The first team comprised of six members. EXID members names who pioneered the music group include Hani, Jung Hwa, LE, Yeji, Dami, and Haeryung. However, the group hasn’t been without challenges since its formation. Just a few months inside their debut year, AB entertainment, the owner of the EXID group, announced that three members of the group were leaving.

It was a dark moment for them when these EXID members left the team just months after formation. Although AB entertainment said that Dami and Yuji had exited to concentrate on their studies while Haeyung was off to focus on her other career as an actress, it didn't sit well with the rest of the group and fans.

After all these, the group came back together with the entry of Solji and Hyelin. Eventually, they went ahead and released their first single “I Feel Good” under their first EP “Hippity Hop." The wheel continued rolling, and the group kept releasing singles, including the October 11 ‘Hey Boy’ which was chosen as the soundtrack for the MBC’s sitcom The Thousandth man.
