Momoland 모모랜드 is a female idol group from the Duble Kick Company. The members are the winners of the “Finding Momoland” reality show.
After the success of their recent girl group, I.O.I., Mnet went on another search for the next big girl group with the survival reality show "Finding Momo Land." The show featured producers Rhymer, Duble Sidekick and Shinsadong Tiger.
The format of the show followed the concept of JYP Entertainment’s survival reality show "Sixteen" which launched the group Twice.
According to Momoland member Hyebin, "Momoland is a group that is like an amusement park, as the name suggests. We prepared music that might be heard at an amusement park. We will become a group that brings sounds that didn't exist before with different sound effects. We will be able to present various strengths because all 7 members are so unique."
Mnet's survival program “Finding Momoland” finished airing on September 16, 2016, but Duble Kick announced that the finalists’ debut would be delayed.
In a press release, Duble Kick Company stated, “The ‘Momoland' members were asked to gather 3,000 people for the final mission and perform two songs that will appear on their debut album. Unfortunately, they did not succeed in their mission, only gathering about 2,300 people. If they had succeeded in their final mission, we were going to debut the group right away. Since they did not succeed, Hyebin, Nancy, Ahin, Yeonwoo, Nayun, Jane, and JooE will work hard to show a better side of themselves in the future.”
They also stated that Daisy, Shin Siah, and Heejae, who were eliminated from the show, would go back to trainee status.
Since then, they have continued their training and attended various festival and school concerts, while member Nancy has also appeared in MC Gree’s music video.
The girls also completed a successful crowdfunding effort to finance their debut album. As of October 20, 2016, they had 134 percent of their required funding on Makestar.
A source from Duble Kick Company said, “Thank you to everyone for all the support you’ve given to Momoland. In order to repay you all, the members and the staff are all working as hard as we can.”
On November 10, 2016, Momoland's first mini-album, Welcome to Momoland, was released. The promotional single was "JJan! Koong! Kwang!" (짠쿵쾅).
Their first debut stage was on Mnet's "M Countdown" on Nov 10, 2016.
The members held a Christmas party for the fans who'd supported them through their debut promotions for Welcome to Momoland. They prepared gifts for the fans and made Christmas cakes with fans. The event was for the most diligent fans who showed Momoland the most support. In order to attend, fans needed to collect all 7 individual photocards as well as the 8th full group photocard.
Their label said, "We sincerely thank fans who supported Momoland's debut album promotions. We'll become a Momoland who gives back by growing more."
