Who Are (G)I-DLE?

(G)I-DLE debuted under the music agency Cube Entertainment with the song “Latata” in May 2018. Originally a sextet, member Soojin left the lineup on August 14, 2021, due to bullying allegations.

In an interview with The Star, (G)I-DLE’s group leader Soyeon revealed that the name of the band came to her when she was composing the “Idle Song.” However, the name received mixed reactions in South Korea and internationally, leading the band to rename themselves (G)I-DLE, which they confirmed would be pronounced verbally as “I-dle.”
