STELLAR gets a second chance thanks to crowdfunding

With the exception of their controversial 2014 hit “Marionette”, STELLAR haven't had much luck on the charts. However, the girl group has miraculously managed to survive in the cutthroat world of K-pop after turning to crowdfunding in the last year to pay for their albums.

Using the popular MakeStar platform, the girls offer everything from signed albums to personal phone calls and dinner dates in exchange for financial contributions. Their latest project - their third so far - has already exceeded 500 per cent of its original goal, pulling in an impressive $44,000 USD (and counting!) with approximately 40 days left until the donation deadline.

This isn't the first time STELLAR has crushed their crowdfunding goals. For their mini-album “Sting” (easily one of last year’s best releases), the girls raised $35,500 USD (421 per cent of their goal), while follow-up project “Crying” did even better with $53,600 USD (532 per cent).

[Spoiler (click to open)]

Brian Kim, MakeStar’s chief product officer, singled out STELLAR in an interview with KultScenelast November, crediting their willingness to try new things when it comes to crowdfunding as a reason for their popularity on the platform. Kim also says that it was STELLAR’s early success on MakeStar that inspired many other artists to jump on board.

“We’re really focused on what the fans want,” Kim told KultScene. “We’re trying to make new opportunities for fans to have their voices heard a little bit more by the industry.”

Wonder Girls sticking together, looking for new management?

According to a user on Twitter:

In January 2016 JYP had approached WG and stated that due to the management levels they may not be able to provide properly to WG due to many staff joining TWICE when TWICE was formed. JYP had stated that they would compensate WG for the lack of management by giving them more earnings through their sales. There was an agreed plan around this time that during WG's 10th anniversary the group would "disband" and members would move onto their separate ways in Feb 2017. This agreement that was made in 2016 was based off of their Reboot album which didn't do as well as expected. However, with their comeback with "Why So Lonely" and the unexpected success, members of the Wonder Girls noticed that it would be a better idea to stay together as a group of four, and are now negotiating with JYP what they can do as Wonder Girls now have some leverage. In addition, one of the oldest and the youngest members of WG (Yeeun and Sunmi), have been making their own negotiations with other companies to find a new company that will be able to manage and sign all members of WG (to keep WG) if they do end up leaving JYP.

Omona's Fave Flop Girl Group Get a Billboard Article + Are #1 on the US Kpop iTunes Chart

CLC Revamps Style With HyunA Co-Written 'Hobgoblin'

The girl group returned with a darker, sexier image than they've showed in the past.

Following 4Minute’s disbandment and Beast’s departure from Cube Entertainment in 2016, the Korean music agency started 2017 with a shift in direction from its newest girl group CLC. The act’s new album Crystyle was released Tuesday and featured the single “Hobgoblin,” which promptly rose to the top of the U.S. iTunes K-pop chart.

“Hobgoblin” is an EDM trap song co-written by HyunA and the team of writers who wrote 4Minute’s 2015 hit “Crazy.” Fittingly, “Hobgoblin” is a sonic sequel to the 4Minute song, with its frenetic snares and dramatized raps delivered over a building, uptempo beat. The new single marks a turning point for CLC, thanks to its heavy integration of rap and overall a more intense sound. In contrast, the septet’s 2016 releases -- "No Oh Oh," "High Heels," and "Chamisma" -- were bright pop songs.

Random fact that I found out last night, Hyuna's personal makeup artist and stylist also helped out with the looks for this concept/comeback. It really is her pet project. I love it!

Best Non-Title Tracks of 2016

So much happened in 2016, both in the world of Kpop and beyond, that it was hard to keep track of what was coming out from one moment to the next. That's why even though many of us are quite content to put our behinds in the past the past behind us in regards to last year, it's time to look back on the songs you missed in 2016 while you were covering your doomsday bunker in posters of your fave.

these were REALLY hard to pick (hence why the runner-up category was included.) I'm sure there are still plenty that I've forgotten about; let me know in the comments!

I was really impressed with these two episodes, the set up is very interesting and JKH is a riot when he plays comedic roles. Bong Hee is already a great character.

Omona Exclusive: What the hell is up with Ailee's company?

Ever since Ailee A.Leean announced her first foray into the U.S. market, her "debut" has been a conga line of humiliation, from a terrible stage name to a lackluster song to her "management" being consistently messy and embarrassing on Twitter to release schedules that would even have YG shaking his head.

In an effort to find out who was behind all these sad shenanigans, I used all my research abilities (finely honed from watching hours of Catfish marathons) and uncovered a story that was even more baffling and shrouded in mystery than this company's promotion tactics.
