It has been a busy first half of the year so far for the girls of EXID. Having seen their popularity rise meteorically after "Up And Down" became a surrise viral hit, the five-strong girl group quickly followed it up with the track "Ah Yeah" in April, keeping the audience's interest in this sexy and charismatic ensemble intact. However, it seems that the girls will be taking their much-needed rest before they schedule for a comeback later this year.
After the girls wrap up their promotions for "Ah Yeah", they will recharge for the next few months as they take a hiatus. But before they temporarily say goodbye to fans, EXID promised that they will stage a comeback in September. The group's final performance for "Ah Yeah" will be on the May 24th episode of "Inkigayo".
EXID had been promoting non-stop since the year started, kicking off with the re-run of "Up And Down". Although the song was first released in August 2014 it didn't receive a lot of success. It was only until a fancam of EXID's Hani went viral that the group started gaining unprecendent attention and an expanding following. This prompted the group to give "Up And Down" another go.
Things started to improve for EXID after the viral fancam. The group scored 5 trophies in different music shows during their promotional run for "Ah Yeah". The members have also been doing well individual. Hani currently stars in the fashion program "A Style For You" together with SISTAR's Bora, KARA's Hara, and Super Junior's Heechul. EXID's lead vocalist Solji rose victorious in the MBC special "King of Mask Singer", and has been receiving more recognition for her singing chops since then.
