As of writing this article, two days ago on the 16th of January, (G)I-DLE had their first official performance in almost five months since Soojin's departure from the K-pop group and CUBE Entertainment

The K-pop girl group was part of the lineup of performers in the "2022 Expo" in Dubai which was held at Jubilee Park. This was their first performance (G)I-DLE has ever performed with a line-up of five-members.

In the music festival, (G)I-DLE performed their hits "Oh my god," "HWAA," "DUMDi DUMDi" and "LA TA TA." The K-pop girl group notably took breaks in between certain tracks to adorably talk with Neverlands (the name of their fandom).

Fans have missed the K-pop girl group but since this was (G)I-DLE's first time performing with five members, the K-pop girl group were to make adjustments in their performance. Most notably, due to Soojin's absence, (G)I-DLE's Shuhua had to pick up the pace.

Before Soojin parted ways from (G)I-DLE, Shuhua only had limited singing parts. But due to Soojin's absence, Shuhua took over Soojin's part. K-pop fans believe this was difficult for the Taiwanese idol due to her usually short lines.

Although K-pop fans praised Shuhua for her effort, most found it evident that she found it difficult to take over Soojin's lines. During Soojin's time in (G)I-DLE, she was known for her charisma on stage. 

(G)I-DLE's Shuhua is popular for her innocent vibe and due to their difference in personality, K-pop fans thought it was hard for Shuhua to give justice to Soojin's parts.

Fans of the K-pop girl group were happy to see (G)I-DLE once again perform, but the absence of Soojin was too much for fans to overlook.
