Songs and Albums 

Purple debuted with the digital single Maemmaeya on September 18, 2018, under LUK Factory as a project girl group. Their digital single Maemmaeya was a popular song of that time. The title of the single was familiar with Korean rhymes which remind locals of their childhood memories. 

Mi.o produced song Maemmaeya has many retro elements which make it addictive to the listener. It appears as a nostalgic song with city-pop sounds which makes it groovy. The song was made keeping in mind the cute charms of the three members. It’s about a shy girl who is trying to steal the heart of her crush.

The group hasn’t released any other song or album yet. After Daejong left the group Hashtag it is assumed the group might disband, but we can still expect Purple’s comeback as two members may be. But Maemmaeya is still a worth-listening song; if you like groovy pop songs, give it a try!
