  About Laboum 라붐  

Laboum 라붐 is a girl group that debuted in 2014 under NH Media and Nega Network's joint venture Global H Media. Their name is taken from the French film La Boum.

2014: Debut

In August 2014, NH Media and Nega Network announced the upcoming debut of the girl group Laboum, which had been training for four years. The group was touted as a sister group to NH Media's U-Kiss and Nega Network's Brown Eyed Girls.

Laboum released their debut EP Petit Macaron on August 28, 2014, following the release of their music video for title track "Pit-A-Pat" the day before. The song was written by Seo Jieum, known for hits such as f(x)'s "Electric Shock" and TaeTiSeo's "Twinkle," and was composed by Jung Jaeyeob.

On October 24, Laboum announced that they would come back with Petit Macaron Data Pack, a Petit Macaron re-release with extra digital content, and a reworking of the track "What About You?" On October 31, the group held a comeback performance on "Music Bank" and released the song's music video, which featured a clockwork doll theme. Petit Macaron Data Pack was released on November 3.

2015

In late February 2015, ZN was cast to star opposite U-Kiss' Kevin in the two "Milky Love" episodes of the omnibus web drama "About Love." Both episodes were released on March 2 on Naver TV Cast.

On March 16, Laboum announced that they would come back with a more mature yet refreshing concept in "Sugar Sugar," which would feature a slumber party theme. The single, its accompanying EP, and music video were released on August 14. Yujeong was a guest on a May episode of the popular radio program "Kiss the Radio," hosted by Super Junior.

In June, Solbin was cast in the variety series "Her Secret Weapon." The show focused on lesser-known girl group members and ranked them based on their performance in certain tasks that highlight the qualities female idols need to generate loyal fans. Out of ten contestants, Solbin tied with Berry Good's Taeha for sixth place.

On November 26, 2015, Laboum uploaded a music video teaser for the comeback single "Aalow Aalow" to the group's official YouTube channel. The video was released on December 1 and featured an elegant, funky retro style. On December 4, Laboum held a comeback stage for "Aalow Aalow" on "Music Bank." The EP was officially released on December 6.

2016-present

On February 15, 2016, Laboum launched a campaign to fund their upcoming music video on the crowdfunding platform Makestar. Among other rewards, the group offered an "Honorary Producer" title in the music video credits to those who donated over a certain amount. The campaign reached its goal of $8,261 in just four hours.

The Makestar campaign ultimately raised $27,832, 336.9% of its original goal. Laboum released the music video for "Journey to Atlantis" and its accompanying EP Fresh Adventure on April 6, 2016.

On August 9, 2016, Laboum began teasing an upcoming comeback. After much anticipation they released the music video for "Shooting Love" and its accompanying EP Love Sign on August 23, 2016.
