Stellar got chatty in an interview with Sports DongA, talking about everything from the members' personalities to their frustration at only being known as 'sexy' idols.

When asked about each member's personality, the girls replied, "Gayoung is quiet, calm, and extremely reserved. Minhee is gabby, very expressive, and doesn't act feminine. If Minhee's mood is down, then the overall mood within Stellar goes down, and if her mood goes up, Stellar's mood goes up, too. Jeon Yul's good at variety but you never know what she might say so you have to act as a sort of filter [for what she says] by sitting next to her. Minhee's got the most sass on stage. Hyoeun's popular among our female fans.


The girls also talked about if they ever wanted to quit being idols, saying, "The toughest time for us is our breaks [in between promotions]. We've developed a longing for the stage as we waited for new songs. It was difficult for us to do a sexy concept like 'Marionette.' But if we do a different concept, then we end being forgotten. There is just no reaction when we attempt something different. We feel frustrated that the public only views us as 'sexy' idols." 


Stellar then revealed the methods they use to deal with malicious internet comments. They said, "Theses days, we don't see many malicious comments. When we see comments that could help us, we think that we should [use the comments as a guide to] improve ourselves. But if they are just troll comments, then we just ignore them or press dislike.

The girls weren't afraid to openly discuss the topic of dating, saying, "The agency allows dating, but we are not seeing anyone. Before, we were actually reprimanded for not dating." Well, it's not too late to begin, ladies!

    I think Stellar would do great with a "Playful" concept. Something kinda like D.Holic's Chewy or Bestie's Excuse Me mvs. I get the impression that Stellar is a group that really wants to break out and show new sides of themselves, like they have pent up energy from doing the same concept over and over again, and I think a playful concept would suit them.That being said, I also think companies need to think more outside the box when coming up with styles for idols. There's so much more to work with besides sexy concepts, cute concepts, etc. Maybe a creepy fantasy concept? A drama-esque concept? A dream like concept? A period/history concept? There's so much more idols can do, and they should also get a say in what they want to do.

    Sadly, I can't feel bad for them. I understand the company's need to promote the girls as sexy because of financial difficulties. But, it was the route they chose. Haven't they done much else, it's not the audience's fault for seeing them as "the sexy idols". Also, if they can't sell, it might say something about the industry itself, e.g. overcrowding of groups, or trends.

    yeah that video they did with so many obvious suggestive sexual lyrics stigmatized them. like they were in panties walking around drinking milk like they were giving a blowjob. its really the agency's fault, not really the girls i figure. they seem like good girls forced to act like hyunA.

    i see your point but if you go through their past releases you will see they tried many times to work with cute but it didnt sell nothing and if you had followed them recently you would see that they even trying to promote a cute ceoncept b-side called love spell but they didnt had any money and the video itself endend up being shit but i agree 100% with that last part about the industry
