MAMAMOO’s Wheein says she didn’t like Hwasa at first, calling her a “total attention seeker”

MAMAMOO’s Wheein has revealed that she had a negative first impression of bandmate Hwasa, who she met during their time in middle school. Wheein recently appeared on an episode of MBC’s The Oppa of Tteokbokki House, where she spoke about her friendship with Hwasa. Notably, the duo had first met in middle school, before going on to debut as half of K-pop girl group MAMAMOO in 2014.

Enhypen, Pentagon, P1Harmony, BamBam And Wheein: The Bestselling Albums In Korea In January 2022

In the month of January, just one album sold half a million copies in South Korea. That type of performance would be incredible in almost any other nation in the world, but music lovers in the Asian country are known for their proclivity for purchasing the latest releases from their favorite musicians. It’s not entirely uncommon for only one or two efforts to hit such a lofty mark, but it does highlight just how massively successful the top title was.

Wheein talks stepping out on her own, working with Ravi and the future of MAMAMOO

In full bloom, the magnolia stands tall over the vernal fields distilling incandescent light while the butterfly travels across the infinity transiting the wind. Having these two figures – intricately connected yet dancing like a divergent force – inside a self-created musical firmament, Wheein exists in harmony with her surroundings. But this is now. Getting here has been a journey.

Wheein – ‘WHEE’ review: a serene portrait of an artist in transition

Wheein has been candid about the harried, slapdash nature in which her first solo mini-album, ‘Redd’, came about. Production ran up against tight deadlines, and her then-agency RBW fell out of deals for tracks. Years-old lyrics were plucked and recycled into something new, while rapper pH-1’s feature was written and recorded in under an hour. “[At the time,] it was to the point I couldn’t imagine the album getting released,” reflects RBW’s Park Woo-sang, who worked on all six songs off the project.

Wheein’s “Whee” is a Charming Breeze of Warmth and Simplicity

Fresh from a record label change, and seemingly beginning her gradual recession from Mamamoo, Wheein has returned with her second solo album Whee. Her previous work, 2021’s Redd, used colour symbolism and artistic motifs to paint an autonomous portrait, and those ideas have carried across to her first album with new company L1ve. The tone is softer and more ethereal here, but Wheein’s strength and presence as a vocalist ensure that this new album is no wild departure, but instead a comforting next step.
