However, not many know that the K-Pop industry has many dark stories behind that. It turns out that not all K-Pop artists are as lucky as them. Instead of achieving success, some are used as sex objects for profit. This sad story is experienced by Stellar, an idol group that was formed in 2011 and disbanded after seven years of existence. There is a sad reason behind the disbandment of this four-member group.
During their career, Stellar had a career path that caught the attention of many people. Starting from the concepts which were always sexy, dance moves that were too inviting, sensitive content, and so on. Behind all of that, Stellar had talented members who were actively promoting in releasing music videos and making comeback stages.
Let’s take a look at Stellar during their promotions era in this article below!
Music Videos & Dance Practices
On August 31st, 2011, Stellar made their debut with the release of the “Rocket Girl” music video. Adopting a cyber concept, they present futuristic voices in their songs. Stellar also turn into secret agents with a mission to save their boss, Shinhwa’s Eric. By relying on laser shots, the girls won’t give up until they get Shinhwa’s Eric. Stellar also present revolutionary dance through their songs. But, unfortunately, it hadn’t even been a day since they released the music video, Stellar had gotten into trouble with the KBS station for being too sexually suggestive.
On March 2nd, 2012, Stellar released their second music video with the title “UFO”. Unlike the title song, “UFO” has a music video concept that is cute but sexy at the same time. In this era, Stella came up with a girly and feminine outfit with high socks and wore an outfit like a school uniform that had been designed more casual. In the “UFO” music video, Stellar members can be seen performing energetic dance moves, and the appearance of a male model who acts as an alien in the music video then becomes the lover of one of the Stellar members.
On July 11th, 2013, Stellar released their third music video with the title “Study” (Hangul: 공부 하세요). In the music video, the members are seen acting out a scene like they are studying, just like the one given in the title song. However, there is a slight difference in the outfit they wear from the overall song concept. Stellar members are given outfits by their stylists with minimal coverage, showing the members’ upper bodies as well as their long legs. The strengths of Stellar are shown from this era when they can look cute and sexy at the same time.
Stellar started their comeback by releasing the music video for “Mask” on August 21st, 2014. The girl group with 4 members who were active at that time continued their comeback with the concept of 19+. With their provocative choreography, they were sure to attract attention once again. Just like the previous song, “Mask” was also produced by G-High and Lee Joo Hyung who were part of the Sweetune producer team. Due to their highly controversial music video concept, the “Mask” music video has even been watched up to 11M times to date.
On March 11th, 2015, Stellar released their music video again with the title “Fool”. Learning from the past, Stellar returned with the single “Fool”. At the beginning of the music video, Stellar members are seen looking at the Internet and they feel sad about the comments of netizens who think they are just showing off their sexiness. “Fool” is a little different. Stellar mix cute K-Pop elements with their sexy image. The result is sweet and not cheap at all.
They use a cute setting and even have a monkey character that entertains them. Lots of cute dolls are used as reinforcement for the cute element in the “Fool” music video. Their outfit is casual but still highlights the sexiness of Stellar members. Although there are still some parts that indulge in sexiness, overall the video is still acceptable to everyone. “Fool” can also be heard with a cute and fun melody to listen to by giving the relaxing effect as well.
Stellar have made various parties curious thanks to the teaser video that shows many hidden vulgar symbols. Now, that curiosity can be answered with the release of the “Vibrato” music video on July 20th, 2015. In the music video, Stellar appear in black and red mini dresses. The dresses have a long slit thigh that shows off the shorts used by Gayoung and her members.
The members were also seen in a glass box while dancing and showing off their curves. The girl group, which debuted in 2011, successfully displayed a provocative side that was highlighted in their comeback in the “Vibrato” music video. Beside that, after the “Vibrato” music video was released, there were even many comments on the pros and cons of netters. They felt that Stellar’s dance moves for this choreography were too sexy and too much.
There are things that make Stellar’s action this time even more special. Not only dancing sexy, but the four members also seemed to be able to highlight their vocals and personalities with the release of the music video for their other song, “Sting”, on January 23rd, 2016. With music with vintage pop nuances, the audience will be spoiled with a mix of audio and visuals. Gayoung, Minhee, Hyoeun, and Junyool‘s sassy behavior is also a ‘bonus’ that is a pity to miss.
The release of “Sting” was also accompanied by their mini-album Pierce. In the “Sting” music video, the four Stellar members are said to be busy on their own. The funny thing is, they are all surrounded by insects that reach their bodies which are only clad in minimal clothes.
On August 5th, 2016, Stellar suddenly released a new music video for their song “Love Spell”. “Love Spell” is one of the Stellar songs that are on their album Pierce.
Stellar members appeared in white dresses and were in a very beautiful tourist spot. Although the music video for the song “Love Spell” seems very simple, it can fill up the cheerful days of Stellar fans in the summer.
On July 18th, 2016, Stellar released a music video titled “Crying”. Different from their previous image, in this music video, the members of Stellar appear cheerful even though they carry a mellow title. With the concept of playing in summer, the members appeared in retro Bohemian outfits that caught the eye of the audience. This new music video was also highly praised by fans and netters. They praised Stellar’s comeback image that was fresher than before.
Meanwhile, in the middle of the shooting progress of the “Crying” music video, Stellar members were involved in an accident. Minhee who was driving a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon hit something hard on the streets of Gapyeong, Gyeonggi Province. But, fortunately, no one was injured during the incident.
Stellar released a music video with a song titled “Archangels of the Sephiroth” on June 27th, 2017. Stellar’s comeback this time was so special because they had an additional member named Sooyoung. Of course, Stellar wanted to increase their strength as a girl group with the addition of a new member. Fans can also see their cool choreography with a feminine style through this music video. This girl group want to prove their abilities by applying the concept to their archangel image. This is also marked as their first comeback after a year and also Stellar’s last comeback as well.
