Trivia

  • The meaning of the group's name:
    • "(G)" (여자) is for "girl" and "Idle" (아이들) for "children".[14]
    • The "I" in "I-DLE" is for individuality and "DLE" is plural, so the girls each have the individual personalities but they are related.[15]
    • The name was given after Soyeon's single, "Idle Song".[16]
  • Soyeon was a contestant on Produce 101 and Unpretty Rapstar 3.[17]
