Out of all the sexy concept comebacks this year, the most memorable has to be STELLAR's "Marionette." Although it wasn't as big of a hit as AOA's "Miniskirt," Girl's Day's "Something," or even Rainbow Blaxx's "Cha Cha," the impact that it had and what it did for STELLAR's career was enormous.
Every day I punch 'stellar' in hangul into Youtube and click the most recent videos to find out if anything new on Korea's angels has been uploaded. Today, whilst searching for a subbed version of the clip of Jay Park winning a 'date' with STELLAR in a game of basketball, I came across this classy Chinese dance cover of STELLAR's revolutionary hit, "Marionette."
Nation's first loves STELLAR stripped off for the April issue of Maxim magazine to further cement their status as Korea's top new sexy girl group over rivals like Girl's Day, Brown Eyed Girls, AOA, 2NE1 and SISTAR.
Since surpassing HyunA, Girl's Day, Brown Eyed Girls, and Lee Hyori as the nation's new sexy icons, the majestic STELLAR has been in high demand across Korea. Lucrative university performances, fan signings, variety show appearances -- it seems that these days you can't go anywhere without experiencing "the STELLAR effect," as the local media has dubbed it.
STELLAR's the hot issue in K-pop right now, but just for the record, I've been a STELLAR stan since they debuted. Their first single, 2011's ridiculous 2NE1 knock-off "Rocket Girl" (or should I say, "Locket Gur") was amazingly bad, while their eurodance follow up, "UFO," was just plain amazing.
