EXID‘s LE reveals the secret story behind the group’s hit track “Up & Down” on the recent airing of KBS2‘s Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook.
It’s almost a shock when we hear that an artist’s most hit song was not originally offered to them because we can’t imagine what it would sound like had it been sung by someone else.
On May 16th, EXID appeared on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook as one of its guests where it was revealed that “Up & Down” was originally offered to Lucky J’s Jessi. However, because the song was not fitting for her, she rejected it.
LE joked, “So the song came over to us. So that’s great.”
Netizens were surprised with the confession, stating, “I’m glad EXID received the song,” “EXID’s ‘Up & Down’ is good,” and “You did well.”
