EXID and Brave Girls exchange friendly banter backstage

Posted: 17 Mar 2012 10:43 PM PDT

Brave Girls, the protégés of Brave Brothers, and EXID, created by Shinsadong Tiger, met in a waiting room of a music program.

While waiting for the March 16th broadcast of KBS 2TV‘s live ‘Music Bank‘ program, the two girl groups shared a waiting room and used the opportunity to exchange bits of information about their respective companies, starting with what they call their bosses.

When the EXID members referred to Shinsadong Tiger as “oppa“, the Brave Girls acted surprised and responded, “Oppa? We call him chairman“. The two groups also exchanged stories about sad experiences at Lotte World, and what their respective bosses have done for them.

Their friendly exchange drew the attention of the staff and the bystanders in the waiting room. Although the Brave Girls, who debuted last year, are sunbaes to EXID, the fact that both groups were created by two of the biggest hit-makers in the Korean music industry, and that the groups were comparing information about their creators and their managing style especially captivated the interest of bystanders.

The information exchange between the two groups came to an end as EXID’s LE stated, “It’s not as if we’re going to move companies; we need to be loyal to our company“.

Brave Girls are currently promoting their song “Nowadays You,” while EXID is promoting their debut song, “Whoz That Girl“.
