MAMAMOO+ unveil ‘pansori’-inspired music video for ‘Chico Malo’

Their first single album ‘Act 1, Scene 1’ comes out next week

MAMAMOO+ have released a music video for their new song ‘Chico Malo’, from their upcoming first single album.

The music video opens with a scene inspired by pansori, or a Korean genre of musical storytelling, with an appearance by Kim Junsu. The clip the launches into the song, with MAMAMOO+ members Moonbyul and Solar performing in modernised versions of traditional Korean outfits.

Those flowers that bloom and fall / Don’t seem to understand how I feel / How much I’m hurting now / I’ll take light steps along the flowery road / Even the birds chirp full of sorrow,” Solar sings on the pre-chorus. Notably, the melody of ‘Chico Malo’ also features the traditional Korean instruments gayageum and daegeum.


‘Chico Malo’ will appear on MAMAMOO+’s upcoming first single album ‘Act 1, Scene 1’, due out on March 29. The project will also feature the lead single ‘GGBB’, with a music video for the song set for release next week as well.

MAMAMOO+ is a sub-unit of the K-pop girl group MAMAMOO consiting of members Solar and Moonbyul. The duo made their debut with the single ‘Better’ featuring BIG Naughty in August 2022.

Last October, MAMAMOO returned as a full group with the single ‘ILLELA’. The song led the girl group’s mini-album ‘Mic ON’, which had been their first release in over a year, following the September 2021’s compilation album ‘I Say MAMAMOO: The Best’.

Meanwhile, MAMAMOO are set to embark on their first-ever US tour in May and June, as part of their wider ‘MY CON’ world tour. The upcoming nine-date tour, featuring shows in New York and Los Angeles, will go on sale at 10am local time on March 29 via Ticketmaster.
