I’ve been watching Melon like a hawk since Stellar‘s “Vibrato” dropped, and it wasn’t until just a couple of hours ago that the song¬†finally cracked the top 100.

The morning after their comeback stage on The Show, “Vibrato” was able to hit No. 80 on Melon. It’s since dropped to No. 88, but I’m just thankful that it’s even charting.

Edit: No. 73 now!

On the bright side, Stellar were trending high on Daum and Naver all day when “Vibrato” dropped, so there’s clearly an interest out there in them. Hopefully with more promo they’ll chart higher.

So far they’ve done a guerilla performance, a cheap swimsuit pictorial for¬†fnStar, and an interview with Joy News where they talk about “Marionette,” “Mask,” “Vibrato,” and their struggles.

“Since ‘Marionette’, we tried to change a bit our mindset of the future. It’s amazing, we’re fine with showing our appearnce in this manner. By the way, I’m really happy to be coming back. This time around, we have ensured that we create a new color that hopefully brings us more opportunities in the future. We hope that this song is not a bad example, but rather an inspiration.”

Anyway, check out their performance on The Show below. It was kind of lazy and not erotic enough, but also kind of a slay. Their shorts are huge though! They started off as g-strings, but every time I see them they’ve gotten bigger. They’re basically Bridget Jones’ bloomers at this point. I guess the fabric can’t help but expand once moistened with Stellar’s sweet watermelon juices.

    I’m just shocked they’re able to get this concept past the censors! Would love to hear this done without backing vocals, the girls seem to actually have great voices when you can hear them.

    • I wish they were more erotic actually, they still haven’t surpassed Marionette’s stages.

        That concept is so meta, more people need to take notice of the thought behind their different eras. I forgot about the boob window outfit.. definitely some room for more exposure in Vibrato!

    Yas for giving us all of the choreography!! I seriously can’t get over the yoga/pushup/floor hump move, so good. They need their diapers tailored better, I need that shit skin tight please. I’m sure they haven’t slept in about a week so I’ll give them a pass on the laziness. You could literally hear all the men in the room splooge in their pants during the fanchants.

    “…once moistened with Stellar’s sweet watermelon juices.” This simultaneously made me gag and crave watermelon jolly ranchers.

    love this stage – makes me feel like they’re giving Hurt Locker a run for its money.

    I have a feeling the song will do well in the long run. *edit: I’m hopeful the song will do well in the long run.

    If nothing else, they’ll slay the military base tour circuits when they’re finally allowed to wear their thongs.

    • The fact they aren’t in their thongs beyond that teaser photo is quite shocking. I didn’t expect them to wear it on music programs (even though they came close to it during that Marionette era performance I linked above) but I thought they were gonna push their media play further and rock the thongs in the MV or dance practice or street performance. Seems like a missed opportunity. Tbh the whole concept outfit is a bit of a mess. I love the idea of the high slit dress, but it needs more exposure. There should be a hole cut on the chest for cleavage, and if they’re not gonna wear thongs than it should be like skimpy boy shorts type thing, not the fucking bloomers they’re rocking!

    Insert obligatory ‘oh my gosh, Jeonyul slay’. It’s nice to see the girls (esp. Jeonyul and Hyoeun) are enjoying performing, especially since it’s such a fun song.

    I’m hoping it charts way higher! Finally full on love the song!

    This is now officially my song of the summer. I’m rooting for them to have some kind of staying power and for sweetune to actually be the hot trend again. I can’t with the Brave Brothers shit already,
