Stellar definitely caught eyes with their new image and comeback with "Marionette", but not without stirring up some heat along the way as netizens and media outlets are asking if the girls have gone too far with their sexy concept.

When searching for their name on Korean portal sites, users are overloaded with articles that all point out Stellar's dramatic image transformation with their provocative choreography and outfits that expose their buttocks. Although at first one could argue that they're simply doing a sexy concept like all the other girl groups are doing, netizens point out Stellar have taken it too far with how they are portraying themselves, especially through their promotional Facebook events.

The girls' new Facebook currently reads, "Oppa! I'll do whatever you want me to - Marionette". This is in reference to the ongoing events they've been holding on the SNS account to gain more clicks and likes. 

Before they revealed the teaser pics, the official Facebook posted blurred out photos and said, "The more you 'like', the marionettes will be unveiled". Depending on how many likes they receive, the blurred portions of the photo were supposed to be revealed, which left many scratching their heads as they asked what was different about this compared to porn sites. Their other events "Oppa! I'll do whatever you want me to" listed various options and whatever the 'oppas' voted for, the girls promised to do. The options ranged from '[showing] shy expression', '[showing] crying expression', '[showing] sexy lips', to performing a sexy dance to whatever song the 'oppas' chose. 

The Facebook says this is all part of the 'marionette play' as to imitate a puppet doing whatever the puppet master controls it to do. So this could be interpreted as the girls just keeping in theme with their new song, but many ask if this is necessary and whether if this is going too far beyond the line of a sexy concept and suggesting other things.

With the girls' new comeback catching quite the attention, the girls' official site as well as agency Top Class Entertainment's homepage suffered crashes due to the heavy traffic.

I think the facebook thing was just staying in line with the theme of the song. The song is about a girl subjecting herself to her ex's sexual whims even though she knows he doesn't love her. The idea of the song seems to be about the girl willing to do anything to get her ex to love her, including sex. Don't you think that fits their promotion style?

Oh goodness, these Facebook promotions are awful! I'm sorry, but this is too much! Too sexy, too quickly! Wasn't Stellar a cutesy-group just a while ago? Uggh!! ^.^

But I'm not blaming Stellar, it's not their fault. I'm blaming their COMPANY. They're the ones who choose to go this far.

Really? A blurred picture to tempt people for likes? That's just ridiculous. Their company is making poor choices.

I don't know about "Oppa, doing whatever he wants to to them", but I don't think the choreography or outfits are particularly risque enough for the flak.

Sexy concepts are the trend for a lot of the girl groups (getting a bit too much now imo) but there is such a thing as sexy with class and just sexy trash : I hope their record company wakes up to themselves and realize they are doing more damage than good in how they are portraying and promoting Stellar.

Seriously don't approve of this over-the-top sexy image that ALL girl groups are doing lately... this one is definitely too far!! And the whole "puppet x master" image is just screaming porno

I'm so glad they're recieving "flak". ;

Please someone fly to Korea and tell the fucking managing company that this is not the way to get fame/success/attention. This is nothing remotely close to any of that. It's called degrading the girls and literally throwing them out onto the street for indirect prostitution. They are LITERALLY making money off of these girls' bodies, not their voices or their dance skills. This is not. fucking. music.

Can you please at least try to PRETEND that you're not desperate for the attention? No, wait. You know what. I hope they're ecstatic and happy that they've finally gotten what they wanted all along. But let me just remind you, company and Stellar members, that all of this fancy schmancy comes at the expense of ;your boobs, your ass, and your entire body displayed nearly naked for the entire world to see. ;

I sincerely hope these girls feel bad for embarrassing their parents. I hope that their parents ARE embarrassed. I would be so disappointed not only in my daughter but in myself, if I saw her like this. I wouldn't be able to sleep all night, questioning my parenting and all I taught her during my time with her. Does it come down to nothing but this? Does it all just come down to her selling her body for all the world to see? I would think: I NEVER SIGNED UP FOR THIS. I signed up for letting her pursue her dreams of becoming a singer. A person who wanted to share her voice to the world. A person who wanted to move her body to the rhythm of a beat in a artistic way so that she could inspire. ;

I hope these girls don't regret it in 10 years when they have kids of your own. Kids that will be embarrassed of their mom. Kids who won't be able to bear going on Youtube at the thought of running into one of these videos where their mom has her boobs hanging out of her shirt, suggesting the idea of "cum", and bathing in a random fucking bathtub in a dark room for all eyes to see. I wouldn't be able to go to school and face my friends. I wouldn't be able to go to the mall with her. ;I would be so, so embarrassed. ;

I know people will avert the fingers to the company, telling me to direct my words to them. And yes, I know these girls are under a contract because I followed and loved KPOP before all hell broke loose between DBSK and SM because of "contract this" and "contract that". But still. This is too much. Either these girls hunger for the attention just as much as the company does or they aren't putting up a fight. I would do whatever it takes to stop this from happening. Why? Because these music videos are forever. The screenshots that are taken by horny men and ecstatic viewers will be distributed across the web forever. The idea of them and their near prostitution will be forever. This is a reality, this is a "forever". ;

Is Stellar and this music video of forewarning what KPOP will ultimately become? Because if it is, I want out NOW.

Disclaimer: This is my opinion (and much of my original comments on the previous article is cited in this one. I apologize for the redundancy if any of you read my previous post).
