In a recent interview, MAMAMOO chatted about their latest promotions for “Yes I Am” as well as people’s perceptions of them as a group and more.
The interviewer told the group that they are famous for being very shy in front of new faces to which Solar replied, “When we were taking photos earlier, it was so awkward that our expressions were stiff. It’s a little better now, but we do become reserved in front of new people.” Hwa Sa continued, “On stage, we play really well, but we become very quiet backstage if there is anyone we don’t know. Our shyness is an ongoing thing.” When asked if they wanted to explain any misunderstandings from such an issue, Hwa Sa responded, “I think that’s just the way we are. There are times when a person is happy, and times when they want to rest. We hope people look at our shyness as humanely as possible.”
The interviewer also asked what the biggest misconception or misunderstanding they received as a group was. Moon Byul said, “Even though we were only rookies a few years ago, we heard that we requested too many things. We as a group contribute and involve ourselves into 80-90% of the album production. So when we were a rookie group, if we asked to do something in a certain way, people misunderstood that as arrogance. Because of that, we were very flustered and taken aback at first. But now, they consider us more and say, they’re just this kind of group. This is their color.”
