On May 15th, EXID held a showcase for their comeback album 'WE'! The group shared the story behind their track 'We Are..', revealing that all the members are written their own parts for the track. Hani shared that she broke out in tears while she wrote her part: "The members decided to write their own parts for the song and I cried while writing mine. I didn't want to be made fun of by the members, so I hid it."
Junghwa also revealed that there was another member who ended up in tears: "There was a member who cried during recording. It was Solji. I heard she cried so much that the recording had to be paused." LE added on that it was because, "Solji's part is when the emotions get the most intense. I think she also cried because the lyrics have the members' hearts in them."
They also addressed the fans' question of disbandment after Hani and Junghwa's departure from Banana Culture Entertainment. Back on May 3rd, it was announced that only Solji, LE, and Hyerin had renewed their contracts as Hani and Junghwa decided to leave the label.
However, EXID confirmed at their showcase that their departure did not mean the end of EXID: "It does not mean disbandment for EXID. It's not what we want. All 5 of us want to continue EXID. Some are saying that it's essentially disbandment since there are members who did not renew their contracts, but we're not planning on disbanding."
LE continued on by saying, "We're having a lot of discussions in order to continue our full group promotions. I don't think there's going to be a 3-member EXID. We want to remain as five with EXID. There can be unit promotions. This is not our last album."
Junghwa ended with how she planned on revealing the reason why she didn't renew her contract in the future.
