Solar's agency releases concept photo ahead of EP drop
Ahead of the release of her first EP, Solar's agency showcased a concept photo of the artist which hints at the bold theme of her new music.
Clad in a dress made up of newspaper articles about her and striking a pose, the photo portrays Solar of girl group Mamamoo's confident attitude amid public judgements.
Solar's first EP “容 : Face” is set to drop March 16. The EP's title derives from Solar's legal name which is Kim Yong-sun. Yong, which appears as a Chinese character in the EP's name, refers to the word "face." The agency explained that the EP will reveal Solar's honest self in the form of music.
Spoiler videos of the EP's title track "Honey" have been released on Mamamoo's official YouTube page since yesterday.
Ahead of her album drop, Solar tested positive for Covid-19 on Feb. 24. Although she is in self-quarantine, she is still expected to carry on with her album release as planned.
Solar is a member of girl group Mamamoo which debuted in 2014. The group has won various awards since then, including Best Album at the 2021 Golden Disk Awards and Best Vocal Performance Group at the 2020 Mnet Asian Music Awards. Solar made her solo debut with the album “Spit It Out” in April 2020.
