On November 22, MAMAMOO made an appearance on KBS 2TV’s Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook and revealed that she came up with the idea to do rip her clothes on stage after watching male idol groups doing that for performances.
Yoo Hee Yeol commented, “MAMAMOO’s performances are fire. What did Solar do for her solo performance?” Solar said, “After seeing many male idols ripping their shirts on stage, I wondered, ‘Why can’t girls do that too?’.”
For the 4season F/W concert, Solar performed BTS’s “Fire” and ripped her shirt off for the ending performance.
This isn’t the first time a female K-Pop idol has surprised fans for their actions.
Previously, HyunA shocked fans by pulling up her skirt during her performance of “Bubble Pop.” Fans were not pleased with her actions and felt that she didn’t need to show everything.
Going back a bit further in time, there was a moment when Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon decided she would take off her jacket if they won first place. When the producer doesn’t seem to approve of it, Taeyeon responds with “Why can’t a female singer take their clothes off?”
PD: เอิ่ม มัน….
