MAMAMOO is a four piece girl group from South Korea who are under Rainbowbridge World (RBW). The girl group consists of members Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein and Hwasa.
The group made their debut on the 18th of June 2014 with the popular song “Mr. Ambiguous”. MAMAMOO have definitely shown from the beginning with this track they aren’t afraid to stand out from the crowd in the intimidating pop scene in Korea. With their unique vocals, dancing and music style MAMAMOO have garnered a lot of attention with their additional tracks and comebacks such as “Peppermint Chocolate” featuring K.Will and Wheesung and also their latest track “AHH OOP” with Esna. Jazz seems to be a popular genre mixed with their music style and it certainly suits them well! Their interesting music style and exceptional talent has earned them awards such as 2014 Artist of the Year and 2014 Rookie of the Year!
MAMAMOO’s leader is Kim Yong Sun who goes by her stage name Solar. She was born in 1991 and also has the position of main vocalist along with being the group’s leader. Before her debut Solar featured in various performances such as “Wash Away” with Geeks on various music shows. Along with being the leader of MAMAMOO Solar is also the oldest member.
Next up is member Moonbyul. Moonbyul doesn’t use a stage name but her full name is Lee Moonbyul. Born in 1992, Moonbyul is just a year younger than Solar. Moonbyul’s position in MAMAMOO is acting as the lead rapper and lead dancer. Her dancing skills are definitely admirable as she created the choreography for the group’s music video “Mr. Ambiguous”.
The third member of the girl group is Wheein. Born as Jung Whee In, the Jinju-born star serves as a lead vocalist and a dancer alongside Moonbyul. Wheein, like the group’s maknae, was born in 1995. As the group’s lead vocalist Wheein learned how to sing with style and expertise from attending J Music Vocal School, a school that many talented singers have attended in the past.
Finally, the youngest member of maknae of MAMAMOO is Hwasa. Like Wheein, Hwasa was born in 1995 albeit three months later. Hwasa’s real name is Ahn Hye Jin but her stage name definitely suits her well! Similar to the other MAMAMOO girls, Hwasa is multi talented as her roles in the group are lead rapper and lead vocalist. She also attended J Music Vocal School where she learned her tricks of the trade!
If you’re looking for a new group to listen to, MAMAMOO is the perfect choice. With their refreshing sound, impressive vocals, rap and talent in dancing, this group is more than a triple threat! MAMAMOO always know when to bring amazing tracks and music videos to the table, so keep an eye out for them in the future! They won’t let you down.
