Who is EXID’s leader, and why is she chosen as a leader?
In certain agencies, they pick the leader based on who’s the oldest. For example, SM Entertainment picked Taeyeon as the leader of SNSD because she is the oldest member even though all the individuals said Sooyoung or Jessica are more leader-like. EXID’s leader is Solji, who is the oldest member, yet she was also picked as a leader since she was the group’s vocal mentor before she went along with them.
She previously had experience mentoring them and leading them in that manner, so they already regarded her and admired her as a mentor when she was added to the group.

In 2012, EXID debuted under AB Entertainment before moving to Banana Culture four years later. However, Hani and Jeonghwa left the company back in May 2019 when they decided not to reestablish their Banana Culture contracts.
