MAMAMOO members have been stars of many concert, event, or television show. Therefore, it’s not surprising that many kpop fans want about them. Since 2014 till now, MAMAMOO has gone through various ups and downs. Nevertheless, the success has been written under their name. The four-member MAMAMOO kpop girl group debuted on 18 June 2014 with their first single, Mr. Ambiguous, under RBW. The group consists of four dazzling stars- leader Solar, Moonbyul, Wheein, and Hwasa.
Some critics even considered their debut as one of the best Kpop debuts of 2014, which is a huge thing. After 2014 falls under the 3rd generation kpop, where we welcomed various worldwide famous kpop bands such as GOT7, Hotshot, Infinite F, Lovelyz, Red Velvet, etc. Also, due to their strong stage persona, MAMAMOO members always stand out from the crowd. The members are recognized for their jazz, R&B, retro concepts, and strong vocal performances. Therefore, MAMAMOO’s discography consists of 3 studio albums, 1 compilation album, 44 music videos, 11 EPs, 25 singles, and 17 promotional singles.
Besides the group activities, the members are focused on their solo careers. Since each member possesses a unique charm, there is no doubt Moomoos (MAMAMOO Fandom Name) can’t help but fall in love with them!
Kim Yong Sun, better known by her stage name Solar, was born on 21 February 1991 in Gangseo-gu, Seoul, South Korea. She attended Modern K Music Academy University. Solar is the leader and one of MAMAMOO members. Before joining the Kpop industry, Solar dreamed of becoming a flight attendant. However, after singing for a free gift, she was discovered by the agency. Therefore, being trained for years, Solar put her 110% to be where she is now. She even created the official fan song for Moomoos.
Furthermore, Kim Youg Sun made her official solo debut with the single album Spit It Out in April 2020. She has written and produced various MAMAMOO tracks such as Taller Than You, My Hometown, Aze Gag, From Winter to Spring, I’m Your Fan, etc. Solar has also given her voice to numerous kdrama OSTs such as School 2021 OST Winterblooming, Kill Heel OST Dun Dun Dun, Vincenzo OST Adrenaline, etc. Being an idol, Solar has participated in Korean variety shows, such as King of Mask Singer, We Got Married Season 4 (with Eric Nam), Two Yoo Project- Sugar Man, etc. With such an extensive career and popularity, she is the main vocalist of MAMAMOO.

Seeing such a vast discography, it’s no wonder Moonbyul has written the rap parts by herself. However, not many know, but initially, she had auditioned for a vocalist position but changed to become a rapper later. Furthermore, Moonbyul has been credited for more than 98 songs and thus received the title- the most credited female idol of her generation.
