Will in “Peppermint Chocolate” and Bumkey in “Don’t Be Happy,” before releasing their debut extended play (EP) “Hello” in 2014 and their first original soundtrack for the “Marriage, Not Dating” Korean drama “Love Lane” in 2015.
Their second EP, “Piano Mane,” was released on November 21, 2014, and reached #41 on Gaon’s Digital Chart, propelling Mamamoo to the top of South Korea’s K-pop charts.
They released their third EP, “Pink Funky,” on June 19, 2015, with the lead single “Um Oh Ah Yeh” becoming a huge hit, reaching #3 on the Gaon Chart.
