Hello everyone! LEGGO News is back to being active. We took a short break due to our admin’s life changes then another short break for a trip to South Korea. Now let’s get back to updating everyone about EXID’s activities starting with what we missed.
Below are the major updates to catch up on. Of course, there were social media posts, interviews, and photoshoots too. We hope that everyone is following EXID to be notified of those updates too.
Movies and Shows
🦋 SIX The Musical
Solji played Katherine Howard, one of King Henry VIII’s six wives, in the musical comedy SIX. In the musical, the wives sing about their lives and argue about who suffered the most and should become the group’s lead singer. The show came to South Korea this year from March through June.
🌹 (Ongoing) Three Days of Rain
Hani plays Nan and Lina in the play “Three Days of Rain”. The play starts in Manhattan in the 1990’s and follows two siblings and their childhood friend as they try to figure out their recently-deceased father’s will. The second act travels back in time to the 1960’s and follows the previous generation, answering the mysteries.
The play is still ongoing, and Hani’s acting is superb. Tickets can be bought on the Interpark website. <https://tickets.interpark.com/goods/23007658>
