So RBW is literally doing everything apart of promoting MAMAMOO as both a group and soloists properly.

So they have the time and money to buy out other smaller companies, but can't even manage and properly promote their own groups like Purple Kiss, OneWe, OneUs and espcially Mamamoo? Greed at its best smh
