In a K-pop group, there is certainly one member who is believed to be the leader and handles and maintains the group and its members. It’s hard enough for the leader to maintain or manage the group, especially the members who have different characters and personalities, and this happened to MAMAMOO’s Solar. She was chosen to become MAMAMOO‘s leader and is the oldest member, so she had to bear responsibilities.
She is known as one of the strongest K-pop group leaders, so how does Solar take care of the group and the members? And, what do the members think about her? In this article, Channel-Korea will provide all of the information about MAMAMOO’s Solar in handling her group and members. Check it out!
How Solar Handles Her Group
Kim Yong-sun or better known as Solar debuted with MAMAMOO in 2014. In her group, she is the leader and vocalist. As the leader, Solar really cares about her group and members. She is the strongest leader who is caring, supportive, and understanding to each member.
She is also like a mom in the group who is always proud of her kids’ achievements. This can be proven when the members already got everything that they wanted, such as when Moonbyul started promotions for her solo activity Solar called her and congratulated her. Then, Solar gave Wheein a coffee truck with a cute bear for her solo promotions.
Solar also supported her maknae Hwasa for her solo single and “TWIT” MV filming in 2019. She sent her a red coffee truck, and it made Hwasa happy and surprised!
Solar always protects her members and understands all the members’ problems, such as when MAMAMOO was promoting on Idol Radio, she said that Moonbyul has a lot of worries. Then, she said, “It’s not necessary,” and Moonbyul felt better.
Like Moonbyul, Hwasa also has a lot of worries and sometimes she feels sad about it. Solar encourages her by saying “I know how you feel” to comfort her. She has different ways to handle each member.
But, sometimes when Solar is serious, she looks fierce and focus and even doesn’t smile at all.
What Do MAMAMOO’s Members Think about Their Leader?
After what she has done, what do the members think about her? Let’s start with Wheein. Wheein is a member who finds it hard to express herself. She once wanted to thank Solar for being their leader, but she didn’t put it into words but with affections. She is really thankful to have a leader like Solar.
Then, during KCon LA in 2019, when there’s a question to describe Solar with one word, Hwasa gave the answer “Mom,” which means Solar is like a loving mother to Hwasa.
Meanwhile, Moonbyul says that Solar really cares and respects her so much. Whenever Moonbyul says “Let’s got somewhere”, she always answers, “Sure let’s go!”
There’s one video that shows what kind of leader she is, namely in the Boss in the Mirror program. In the video, Solar is really focused on her comeback with “AYA.” Moonbyul said:
“I think she is pushing herself hard. I always ask her, ‘why do you drive yourself so hard? Is it really necessary?’ then she answers it by saying it’s hard for me, too.”

Solar Shares Her Struggles as a Leader
When Mamamoo attended a television program named Life Bar on March 14, 2019, she shared her struggles as a leader. Besides being a leader, Solar is also called the oldest member with 3 little sisters that she must take care of. At first, Solar felt frustrated and depressed because of her position. She said that she was always the youngest before joining the group, in her family, too.
She felt strange being the oldest. Moreover, she got a leadership role that she had never done before. She also said that she never complimented the other members because she had no time to think about it.
Solar also fought with Hwasa because of this. Moreover, Hwasa who is the youngest among the members still didn’t know that the leader also needs help handling things. Solar admitted that she was once very upset until Hwasa asked her, “Do you really hate me?”
On April 24, 2020, when she promoted her solo “Spit It Out,” she also shared her experience being a leader. She said that they always fought at that time, but now they understand each other’s personalities and became good friends.
MAMAMOO’s Solar Crying
When they were broadcasting on V-Live, Solar talked about how she treated the members. At first, she talked about Moonbyul. She said when Moonbyul was rude to someone, Solar immediately told her that she should stop it.
Then, she remembered one thing about Wheein. Solar said that there is one time she was upset with her, and she remembers everything. She really felt sorry about it. Then, suddenly, she cried and covered her face with her hands.
Everyone was shocked, and all of the members tried to calm her down her. Seeing their leader cry, Hwasa comforted her by saying this is because she drinks alcohol a lot. Hwasa also said that her hands looked like a make-up artist, so everyone laughed.
From all of this, we can say that Solar is very responsible and the best leader. What do you think about Solar? Is she the best and strongest leader? Put your thoughts in the comment section. Don’t forget to follow our Twitter @CKoreaOfficial to get more articles from us!
