EXID and their media play part V

I saw their article shoot to the top last night, and sure enough... It's unfortunate because I've seen readers comment that they're actually quite talented.


Article: EXID releases 'I Feel Good' remix MV "Even their bare faces are pretty"

1. [+109, -9] Their bare faces look like regular people

2. [+59, -3] The fabricated replies are so embarrassingly obvious.....

3. [+56, -2] ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I have no idea who they are... But their articles come up every single day

4. [+55, -47] I love them~! EXID are talented

5. [+45, -44] EXID I love them♡

6. [+23, -3] Who are they

7. [+20, -1] There's a reason they're not getting popular, give it up

8. [+20, -3] Who are they ㅡㅡ

9. [+17, -1] Why are there EXID articles every day, who are they

10. [+14, -1] If after all this media play and they still haven't gotten the response they wanted, they should just give it up. There's already an overflow of idols, what exactly are they trying to achieve with their debut?



  1. But didn't EXID have one of the highest digital sales for rookie groups this year? It makes me wonder if netizens actually care about other rookie groups like B.A.P, Hello Venus, etc.

    I would be nice if the author translated one of B.A.P's recent articles just to see what regular netizens think about them :)

  2. Compare the rookie idol digital sales for first four weeks and the rookie non-idol digital sales

    1. Hello Venus - Venus - $83,500 USD
    2. EXID - WHOZ THAT GIRL - $81,314 USD

    3. B.A.P - No Mercy - $75,243 USD
    4. SPICA - Russian Roulette - $72,199 USD
    5. Phantom - BURNING - $64,899 USD [New]

    1. Busker Busker - Cherry Blossom Ending - $463,200 USD
    2. Busker Busker - If You Really Love Me - $365,727 USD
    3. Ailee - Heaven - $344,100 USD
    4. Busker Busker - First Love - $288,175 USD
    5. Busker Busker - It’s So Hard To Face You - $271,255 USD [Non-Title Track]

    The difference is huge. EXID (and Hello Venus, and Spica, and BAP) may have done well for their debut but they are far from popular with public. If you combined the two lists, Hello Venus and EXID would place 17th and 18th respectively.

  3. EXID are great, really. The quality of the songs are outstanding. Yeah their articles are bought and paid for... but so are everyone else's. EXID are just more obvious about what everyone is in fact doing.

  4. 7. [+20, -1] There's a reason they're not getting popular, give it up

    ouch, lol

  5. Yeah, I actually listened to their music after seeing all these media play articles about them and I have to say, they have some really talented singers in their group. "I Feel Good" is extremely catchy. It's a shame that their company is paying for these articles because it'll just make netizens view them as a less legitimate group although they actually are quite good.

  6. +1.
    I think the exact same as you.
    However, it's still really sad that they're getting all the hate for that blatant media-play -_-
