After 5 years since B1A4’s debut and career in the K-Pop entertainment industry, WM Entertainment ventured to debut new artists. Not a boy band, but the management launched a girl group called Oh My Girl. Oh My Girl was formed as a group of eight members. They are Mimi, Jiho, Arin, Seunghee, Jin E, Binnie, YooA, and Hyojung. The cute impression was felt in their debut video titled “Cupid”. The song is catchy with a drumband-style voice that can be heard from beginning to end again. No kidding, composer Hyuk Shin who was successful with SHINee‘s “Dream Girl” and EXO‘s “Growl” was lined up as a songwriter. The funny lyrics that tell about love in the song are written by Kim Yina (Kim Eana). This name is the person behind the success of IU’s songs, Ga In, and many other K-Pop artists. The music video is made cheerful, according to the song. The cute impression is very trying to be shown by each member for 3 minutes and 34 seconds in the video released on April 19th, 2015.
In 2016, Oh My Girl released a series of teasers and a pre-release track titled “One Step Two Step”. This girl group, which is under the same agency as B1A4, finally officially announced their third mini-album Pink Ocean on March 28th, 2016, along with the release of the music video for the title song “Liar Liar”. Unlike the previous promotions, Oh My Girl returned to the cheerful and colorful concept they promoted during their debut, as seen in the music video for “Liar Liar”.
With the background of a colorful dollhouse, the eight Oh My Girl members are seen carrying a retro concept with cheerful and youthful nuances, which perfectly describe the image of Oh My Girl members who are still very young. Throughout the video, the members look adorable when hiding photos of mysterious men they each like, such as covering them under glasses and hiding behind doors. The mysterious man in the photo is also said to be their senior, which is B1A4’s Gongchan. Beside that, Oh My Girl also managed to set a record with their achievements even though their career was still rookie at the time. Oh My Girl proved their popularity after holding their first concert in Seoul, tickets sold out in just three minutes. WM Entertainment, the agency in charge of this girl group, proudly announced this on July 26th, 2016. Tickets for this concert went on sale on July 22nd, 2016. “We are really grateful for the fans’ support for this first concert,” said a representative from the management through their official release to the media. The concert titled Summer Story is a celebration of Oh My Girl’s debut year in the music industry. From their debut until now, they have always tried to show something different on stage. Debuting with the song “Cupid” which combines drumband instruments with pop music, B1A4’s sister group started to steal the attention.

I’m really looking forward to good k-pop songs and earlier this year Oh My Girl did it,” commented a netter. “Not only is Oh My Girl’s comeback good, but this is their proof after Jin-E’s departure.

Oh My Girl members certainly admit that they are very happy if their new single gets the attention and likes of the public. What’s more, “Secret Garden” is also a champion on various music charts. Reaping success after the past 9 months, Seunghee commented, “I was very worried because this is our comeback after a long time. I’m also worried that maybe we’ve been forgotten and fans might be too tired of waiting for our new work.” The group consisting of 7 beautiful girls had made a comeback after 7 months. This would also be Oh My Girl’s first comeback in 2019. Previously there were rumors that the singers of “Closer” would soon release their full album in May 2019.
