'WAW Concert: The Movie': Mamamoo to release first movie ever in theatres
Following their first compilation album and Hwasa's first single album, the K-pop group is set to release their first documentary film
Moomoos (Mamamoo’s fandom) rejoice because we are about to see Mamamoo on the big screen. It has been announced that they are about to release ‘Mamamoo 2021 WAW Concert: The Movie’ in theatres. With event cinema becoming popular, more and more K-pop groups are releasing documentaries. We had the likes of Blackpink, BTS, and Monsta X releasing documentary films on the big screen worldwide and now Mamamoo has joined the lineup.
In celebration of their seventh debut anniversary in June, the K-pop girl group went all out. Mamamoo released two albums and had a concert. We first had the ballad album ‘WAW’ followed by their first online concert titled ‘WAW (Where Are We)’. It included a mini-documentary of the girls’ journey since their debut, performances of past hits, and the release of a new song. Following this, the girls released their first compilation album ‘I Say Mamamoo: The Best’.
