You really have to respect girl group MAMAMOO as they've come this far despite having been looked down upon and criticized for no legitimate reason.

Guess How Many Fans Showed Up To Their First Performance?
It's quite heart-breaking, but only three people showed up to MAMAMOO's first live performance. Two of them were MoonByul's younger sisters and the other person was a friend of WheeIn.
Hwasa Almost Left The Group Due To Hate Comments
Hwasa talked about how there were so many malicious comments directed towards her demanding that she leave the group.
However, Hwasa shared that those difficult times allowed her to grow stronger as a person.
Even Before Debuting...
Many industry professionals looked down on the girl group, and said that they would flop because they believed the girls did not have "idol visuals".
They said that the girls would have to be exceptionally good at performing to have any chance at all.
But despite all that...
They're one of the most popular girl groups both internationally and domestically.
