"Hello, this is Wheein. For the MooMoos who waited patiently and for the many people who are cheering me on, I will work hard to show good music and a good image through THE L1VE.

More details on Ravi's THE L1VE
VIXX's Ravi recently founded his own agency called THE L1VE. The agency will work as a regular entertainment company, promoting actors and idols. This is different than his hip-hop label GROOVL1N, which he founded in 2019.
The first artist to join THE L1VE is the popular K-pop soloist Ailee. She is now accompanied by another great vocalist, MAMAMOO's Wheein.
News of Wheein leaving RBW, MAMAMOO's agency, first came out in mid-June. After in-depth discussions, Wheein decided not to renew her contract with RBW. The other three members, Hwasa, Solar, and Moonbyul, renewed theirs.
Wheein will now be promoting her solo activities and will still be a part of MAMAMOO. Cases where idols leave their group's agency to better focus on themselves while also being a part of the group have recently been on the rise.
Here's how fans are reacting to Wheein joining THE L1VE:
Meanwhile, MAMAMOO is gearing up for a comeback in September this year.
