Current members Say and J-Da made an appearance in labelmate Block B's music video "NanlinA", alongside two other former members of the group, Song Kwanghee and Lee Dasom, the latter who was formerly a member of the girl group Tahiti. Jucy was also an underground rapper known as "Juni.J", and had released a few tracks of her own, having penned her own lyrics. On July 12, 2012, EvoL's first audio teaser was released,[4] followed by a series of both video and audio teasers that showcased a sample of songs from their EP.
