Q & A::
Q: What does Walwari mean?
A: In Korea when people see something amazing they tend to say “와 (wa)”, and when they are having a good time they tend to sing “lalilali” to themselves. They combined Wa with lalilali and it became Walwari. In chinese it means Wang Wang which means 대박(daebak) in Korean, and amazing / jackpot in English.

Q: What are the pros and cons of being a co-ed group?
A: Pro : When making music they have the male of female vocals they need without asking for a featuring from someone.
Con: When they change clothes the girls use the dressing room and Boombox uses the bathroom.
