After MAMAMOO‘s Solar dropped an image teaser for her 1st solo album “SPIT IT OUT,” fans were left in awe at her choice to portray a bald version of herself. Here are 8 reactions from MooMoos who range from proud and empowered to confused and stunned.
1. Solar is redefining the beauty of baldness.

2. She’s shattering stereotypes by disregarding a traditionally “feminine symbol.”
They are really breaking any stereotypes! Yes woman can cut their hair short, can go bald, etc. I’m so proud to be stanning such a wonderful person! Such a great inspiration and a powerful woman you are Miss Solar! #SPIT_IT_OUT @RBW_MAMAMOO pic.twitter.com/BsvuUcSSIA

3. She’s got a mission for all.
yongsun said: i'll release a solo album but there's one critical condition to it. i want to push the entire country of south korea so far out of their comfort zone at full force and so unexpectedly that once it's done they'll never get to find their way back ever again, done?

5. If you thought you could escape a “snatching wig” joke, you’re mistaken.

6. Her potential artistic meanings and social connotations.
jokes aside. i honestly can’t wait for solar to tell us the thought process behind this teaser. i’m pretty sure it’s something like her wanting to make a statement, “you can be beautiful even with no hair” pic.twitter.com/MXUzD3H2UW

8. The only thing that’s for sure is MooMoos can’t contain their excitement…and it’s manifesting in many ways.
long ago, the four nations lived in harmony. then, everything changed when the fire nation attacked. only the avatar could stop them. but when the world needed him most, he vanished.
a hundred years passed, and moomoos discovered the new avatar. an airbender named yongsun. pic.twitter.com/QrYCYTgA7z
