Then 2014 got here and the ladies made their comeback with "Marionette", the song that introduced them into highlight because of the erotic nature in their out have compatibilitys, choreography, and song video.
Through an interview with Kuki News, the ladies sat down for a decent interview, frankly revealing what resulted in their ex switch in theory and why they continue to advertise this provocatively horny symbol that gains much backlash.
"Marionette" (February, 2014)
Q: it sort of feels like there can had been many complicatedies because of consecutive unluckful liberates.
Junyool: We didn"t have cash for rides, and it was once a hard sit downuation to the point that we"d must percentage one order of food among all folks. There were many unhappy cases. Once, we used the prepare room that a noted choreography team would use. But if we went early and waited, they would give us glances. But at the time we didn"t have cash to visit a cafe, or anyplace else to head and wait.
Minhee: It was once the bloodless wintry weather, and to kill time [prior to shall we use the prepare room] we played a game of rock paper scissors to make a decision who would take one step. So this fashion, we took one hour for a shuttle that handiest takes five mins to get there. If we saw a noted girl workforce pass by way of us in their vehicles, we'd hide out of embarrassment.
Q: Is that why you made a decision to take at the surprising skin exposure?
Minhee: We had to role each and eachthing at the line. We weren"t in a posit downion to con facetr what is moveing to come after. The luck of "Marionette" was once moveing to make a decisi at the lifevogues or disbandment of the team.
Junyool: I ready with the idea that this was once moveing to be our retirement album. I watched other sunbae workforces who took at the horny theory and sharpened my knife.
Gayoung: Honestly, we didn"t think ourselves to be horny. Even our firm wondered if this would suit us. But as we prepared, we discovered we would possibly neatly be [ horny].
Q: At the time, you won a wide number of backlash for the sexual nature of your theory. What did you observed?
Gayoung: 3 of our contributors took ballet prior to, so when we first saw our out have compatibilitys, we just theory "Oh they just appear to be leotards".
Hyoeun: That"s appropriate. We were [comfortready] to the point that we"d run around and play on set. But once the lighting fixtures grew to turn into on, our skin was once transparently visual, and it glanceed erotic.
Minhee: Our song video was once especially erotic. We didn"t even are aware of it was once moveing to be erotic to that extent. The script just stated, "Lie in bed then sit down up" "Drip milk whenever you drink as you long for any person". We were surprised when we learned what the entirese references had int finished, handiest after reading the comments we won. I bet it's essential say we were blameless.
Q: So was once the finish result ample?
Gayoung: It grew to turn into out in point of fact neatly for us. We were given heaps of love demands quite numerous match performances and our negative [bank] balance was posit downive. We also were given a automobile and a dorm. We also were given a tradition room that shall we use all we wished.
"Mask" (August, 2014)
Q: thank you to the luck you were ready to liberate some other song. it sort of feels like you toned down the quantity of skin exposure.
Minhee: as an alternative of sexiness, we wished to pour our sincerity into the liberate ["Mask"].
Gayoung: We incorporated in the lyrics why we had no selection yet to do the horny theory for "Marionette". We sought after to provide an explanation for that we did it to obtain love from the public.
Hyoeun: But, no one appeared interested by way of our sincerity. It was once to the point they didn"t even know we made a comeback. other individuals who pay attentioned to the track stated it was once just appropriate, yet other individuals wouldn"t even give it a pay attention.
Minhee: because the finish effects weren"t just appropriate, our promotion cycle was once short.
"fool" (March, 201 five)
Q: You ex replaced up your taste totally for this one, and there has been once no skin exposure.
Junyool: in fact we theory "fool" was once just moveing to be an aspect song, we didn"t know we'd finally prove selling with it.
Gayoung: We theory the song was oncen"t all that just appropriate, yet the firm driven us pronouncing that it"s a song that makes other individuals call to mind their first love.
Hyoeun: At the time "Infinity mission"s ToToGa was once the entire rage...
Minhee: That"s appropriate. They even brought up that we must wear wide-legged pants that S.E.S sunbaenims wore.
Q: But unfortunately, the finish effects weren"t wonderful.
Hyoeun: We were persuaded finally by way of the firm, yet it didn"t turn out neatly. Later on, we even attempted to switch out out have compatibilitys to horny ones, yet it just didn"t have compatibility in conjunction with the song, so it was once a wide failure.
Gayoung: 2 weeks when we started promotions, the firm told us "We"re sorry" and "From now on, we're moveing to be ready to observe your reviews."
"Vibrato" (July, 201 five)
Q: i used to be surprised after seeing your teaser symbol [photo above]. Not just me, yet each and eachone was once surprised.
Hyoeun: Honestly, we were surprised too. We didn"t do it because we wished to. Having experienced two screw ups after "Marionette", we authorised the truth and come to a decisiond that we wished anything that might transform a most sensibleic.
Junyool: We sought after to get Stellar"s song in the market. When we didn"t have skin exposure, no one even knew we liberated a new song. If it"s no longer provocative, there's no longer any reaction.
Minhee: We were even asked "Why didn"t you guys pop out back after "Marionette"?" when we had already made two comebacks after that song...
Q: You"re receiving backlash to the point of your "Marionette" promotions.
Minhee: It was oncen"t a thong like many folks were imagining. It was once actually move well with bottoms, yet because a portion of it was once covered by way of the get clotheed, the image got here out taking a glance more erotic than it in point of fact was once.
Junyool: There"s an opportunity that even those who insult us will pay attention to our song. And if our song is just appropriate, then they would possibly transform our lovers. And i think that as a lady, we've were given a appropriate to be horny.
Gayoung: rather than seeking to provide an explanation for each and on each occasion a hardy is raised about our sexual ideas, we just wish to continue striving ahead, trusting in those who see appreciate our efforts.
Q: But it turns out like you still have some worries.
Gayoung: we've were given to advertise ourselves, yet I mightn"t get myself to upload the debatable teaser symbol folks on my SNS. But we can"t at all times re facet doing handiest what we wish. we've were given to do what the public needs for them to pay attention our song.
Junyool: That"s appropriate. Of course we do have worries, yet each and on each occasion I move up on degree, the urge to do song continues to grow.
Hyoeun: If a set isn't from a wide-scale firm, it"s hard to gain attention despite the fact that the song and theory are wonderful. Because here's fact, it"s pitiful when we see workforces from other smaller agencies also come to a decision to take on horny ideas to transform luckful.
Q: You got here back when festival is complicated. What is your function for this promotion?
Gayoung: We in point of fact hope it turns out neatly. The firm told us that if we are ready to stick most sensible 20 on song charts for a week, they"ll s finish us on a holiday in some other countake a glance at, we in point of fact hope it occurs.
Minhee: They say that once you get into the pinnacle 20, you don"t without problems fall backtrack. If that occurs, then we can see [ the probability] of a next album. We in point of fact hope we succeed in luck.
Junyool: If that occurs, then I wish to hang a guerrilla concert clotheed in the out have compatibilitys from our song video.
Q: If "Vibrato" succeed ins luck, will you put away the horny theory?
Junyool: I wish to check out an attractive idea that"s [more toned down] and just at the point of pay attentioning "It"s lovely".
Hyoeun: i need us to advertise with a song that we can all experience in combination. most likely there won"t be over the pinnacle skin exposure.
Minhee: It"s no longer that we don"t do blameless ideas because we don"t know the way to do it. We are most often like other girls in their early Nineteen Twenties. however, I do hope that Stellar can retain just a little of our colour still.
