What do you think of this?
My Personal Thoughts
I kinda expected this. I saw them on broadcast and they seem to have a strong bond.
I am not an EXID fan but I listen to their music every once and while, their latest release was AMAZING, I was so sad it was under-appreciated.
The comeback move proves that the girls are serious about their group as much as they’re serious about taking on new challenges and that I appreciate.
I will be looking forward to their next comeback and I hope that there will be other releases of EXID as a whole in the future. Despite their success with “Up and Down” I always thought they deserved more, they were more than that and such amazing performers.
