Anybody who follows my STELLAR posts knows that I’ve been saying that the group needs to go viral, EXID style, for a while now.

As usual, my predictions have come true.

The group’s busty beauty Minhee is quickly becoming a viral sensation thanks to a sexy fancam of last year’s most underrated K-pop song, “Mask.”

The fancam, ripped from a 7 month old YouTube video and posted to Facebook by Koreaboo, has racked up a staggering 7.7 million views since May 2.

This isn’t the only hit video Minhee has either. An old “Marionette” Pharkil fancam has 2.8 million views, while another “Mask” fancam has over 1.1 million.

Minhee’s growing viral fame is already earning attention from the Korean media, with one Naver article predictably comparing her to EXID’s human life jacket Hani.

Realistically, this little shred of viral success isn’t going to suddenly turn STELLAR into the next EXID. Minhee is too much of a porno pin-up doll to become the new national trend like Hani with her approachable sex appeal and enviable beauty, and STELLAR doesn’t really have a LE or a Solji to turn a fappable girl group into top tier material. However, if this gets STELLAR some more attention in general and maybe exposes Sweetune’s slept-on singles like “Mask” and “Fool” to more K-pop fans, then that’d be great. At this stage, STELLAR need all the help they can to stay afloat after their last two chart bombs, so ANY interest they receive is a blessing.

Like I said, STELLAR won’t become the next EXID, but maybe they could turn into the new Nine Muses? They’ve already snatched the Muses’ title of nation’s military-dols (which Nine Muses took from Rainbow), so it’s possible.

Anyway, I’ll be keeping a close eye on Melon in case “Mask” makes a return to the top 100. (Or debuts, really, since it never even made the Gaon chart last year.)

Check out Minhee’s viral fancam below, as well as her cover shoot from the latest issue of military magazine Him.

    I’m just hoping they release a solid full album before they disband. Fool was amazing but it was a grower so it definitely didn’t appeal to the mainstream audience.

    I can feel it in my veins, Stellar will hit it big this year, actually maybe just medium success but still! I wish them all the best!

    • alraun ie

      They got the medium(-ish) success they deserved with Vibrato but I have a feeling that Vibrato was their Figaro and Sting was their Ticket, and the next release will be the game changer 100% into making them into what 9muses was during their golden lineup. Or at least thats what I hope

      Edit: Minus the lineup changes I hope

    I like Stellar, the girls are pretty and the songs are quite good…they just lacked exposure.

    I love how in that magazine cover the AOA, the girl group of our generation (read it and weep: http://www.kpopstarz.com/articles/124477/20141015/aoa-miniskirt.htm ) and the anti-christ, Girl’s Day, are taking a taking a backseat to the new queen of kpop. Take a good look at Hani’s $35 wig while you can, because it’s about to be incinerated

    • SMH I tried to read the link but it redirects to a homepage. I long to read it.

      That article is 8 months old.

      And it reads like (and basically is) an AOA press release.

    #justiceformask! Their singles were so much better than average kpop last year they deserved to have it better than they do now. Hopefully her fancam can increase interest on their songs.

    Given the insane view count in such a short period of time and the fact that it originated with the American site Koreaboo, I assume this is going viral mostly outside of Korea.

    It’s probably a bunch of foreign guys passing it around with a “Hey – check out this hot Asian chick dancing” comment attached to it.

    Unless it’s also going viral in Korea, I don’t know if it will do them much good.

    I hope I’m wrong, though.

  • I still like that song tho… it didn’t get the attention it deserved.

  • stellar has been pimping out minhee since her UFO debut days when they hiked up her skirt to her shoulders. every comeback she always gets the most revealing outfit too imo.
