EXID Debuts with the Support of Hyuna and Huh Gak
The Shinsadong Tiger-produced girl group EXID launched its career with some major support.
EXID held its debut showcase on a mobile stage car in Seoul on February 14. But the members of EXID weren’t the only celebrities who were in the vicinity, as Cube Entertainment singers Hyuna and Jeon Ji Yoon from 4minute and A-Cube Entertainment’s Huh Gak turned up to show their support for the group.
Huh Gak even sang his single Whenever You Play that Song, which was released in December and featured EXID’s rapper LE, to heat up the scene.
4minute’s Hyuna and Jeon Ji Yoon made a surprise appearance to support the group and brought out cheers from the audience, and the showcase itself was hosted by ZE:A’s Kwang Hee. Shinsadong Tiger also appeared onstage to take his group’s promotion into his own hands.
Thanks to the big names helping it out, EXID managed to make a big impression on the minds of the audience gathered that day.
The reason why such popular idols appeared at EXID’s showcase was because of the group’s producer, Shinsadong Tiger. Shinsadong Tiger has collaborated with Cube and A-Cube Entertainment singers for a long time, releasing a great number of hit songs with them. As such, it was natural for the singers to show their support for Shinsadong Tiger’s group in return.
A rep from Cube Entertainment said, “It’s natural for us to support Shinsadong Tiger’s group EXID. We’ll continue to help out with EXID’s promotion.”
This day, EXID showed off its own charms by singing a rearranged version of B2ST’s Fiction and its first single, Whoz That Girl.
The members of EXID stated, “This was our first time on a stage in front of a lot of people, but we were overwhelmed by how so many people cheered for us despite the cold weather. We’re working hard for our debut performance, so please look forward to it.”
EXID will release its new album and perform in its debut performance with Mnet’s M Countdown on February 16.
