Waifu Wednesday: Solji

Heo Sol-Ji (better known by her stage name Solji) is a South Korean idol singer and dancer. She is best known for being the main vocalist of Hani promotional band EXID.

Solji’s K-Pop career has taken some rather long and unexpected turns since she debuted in 2006 as a member of the ballad duo 2NB.

Solji’s voice is more full and mature than one often finds in K-Pop but she was polished enough to find work as a vocal trainer before eventually signing on with EXID where she would toil as the group’s main vocalist before Hani’s fan cams propelled the group to stardom with “Up and Down.” However, while “vocals” and “singing” may not be the first thing that pops into anyone’s head when EXID discussions start, (In my experience, EXID discussions generally boil down to “Hani, legs, legs, legs, Hani, legs, “UP AND DOWN,” Hani.”) Solji’s work on the microphone is actually pretty damn decent and well worth of some damn praise. Her lower register and big volume may not suit EXID’s recent hits as well as the ballad stuff that she debuted with but Solji can sing.

Yeah, she literally brings Hani to tears. Get on the Solji bandwagon already.

Like the rest of EXID, Solji is hot. So, she has that going for her.

Let’s go!

Her:

Solji’s voice is so great that it can be heard from space.

So. Much. Talent.

So. Much. Talent.

Solji’s talents are so grand that they fill the universe’s ever expanding void.

The camera later died and went to heaven. R.I.P. camera.

Solji is so beautiful that she sends chills down gods’ spines.

Welp.

Welp.

Solji’s hotness could melt diamond into puddles of puppies.

My life. It has now lost all comprehensible meaning.

My life. It has now lost all comprehensible meaning.

Solji’s singing echoes through all the happier timelines in existence.

Leave me here. It is glorious.

Leave me here. It is glorious.

  1. Thank you for featuring Solji. Besides the fact that she can sing most of her peer performers into the ground, I admire her incredible tenacity of sticking it in for 9 long hard years. I wish her continued success in the industry..

  2. WOW! Watching that first video I wondered if she had surgery done before coming out again with EXID. She has said she was criticized for her looks. After watching the other videos of her past performances, it’s clear it was just horribly bad makeup. So shocking what a difference makeup makes.

  3. “Solji’s hotness could melt diamond into puddles of puppies.”

    LMAO. good stuff.

  4. I had no idea that Solji was in a ballad duo that long ago! She’s always reminded me of Spica’s Boa: both worked as vocal trainers for years before debuting in girl groups, and both are “old” (lol) for idols and have been criticized for not having conventional idol looks. I wonder if the two know each other.
