Recently, (G)I-DLE‘s newest comeback, “HWAA”, was criticized by fans for having an extremely uneven line distribution. In fact, a Chinese fan club of the group is halting album orders until this is changed to be more fair to the members.

However, this is not (G)I-DLE’s first song with such an uneven distribution of lines. In fact, it’s somewhat common knowledge that a couple members in particular — Shuhua and also Yuqi — tend to nearly always have the least amount of lines, sometimes to a drastic extent.

Here are the line distributions for all the songs in (G)I-DLE’s I album series, including I Am, I Made, I Trust, and I Burn, along with the total line percentage each member has for all of the songs.
