They made their debut as a six-member group in February 2012, with the single “Whoz That Girl”. Their first EP Hippity Hop was released in August 2012 to limited success. The group unexpectedly gained success after their 2014 single “Up & Down”, which did not chart well upon initial release reached number one on the Gaon Singles Chart four months later, when a fan-recording of one of EXID’s performances of the song became a viral video.
