Throughout the running of the band, the Stellar girl group went through several member changes. Some quit and others joined. In the end, before they disbanded, there were four members; the final line-up. However, they were originally meant to be six of them. Thoughts of the creation of the girl group began in 2010. They had their debut in 2011 with four members, with the single “Rocket Girl”. The release of the single was followed by two members calling it quits with the band. Most suspect that it was because of how badly their debut song fared. Their departure shook the band but their record label, The Entertainment Pascal, quickly signed up two new members to take their spots and years later they added another.

Why Did The Stellar Girl Group Disband?
The career girl group had always been rocky, right from their debut. It did not do as well as expected which made Leesul and JoA quit in January 2012. The band seemed like it would end before it even began. However, the label fixed things really quick by adding two new members, Minhee and Hyoeun. The new line-up Gayoung, Jeonyul, Minhee and Hyoeun pushed the group to the point, it got to.
Although, members of the Stellar Girl Group were not happy about the marketing strategies their manager and label took, as they were originally meant to be a cute, girly group but after a while, it took a more provocative turn. It became a sultrier and sensual group instead. In 2014, while promoting their EP, Marionette, they launched a marketing strategy that included a stripping game. Basically, all fans had to do to see parts of the members’ body was to like their pictures on Facebook. The members of the group did not like this at all. Their management did what they thought was best without their consent and each time they disagreed with them they would remind them of their contract.
After Leesul and JoA left the group, the next time the group’s existence was shaken up again was when Gayoung and Jeonyul decided not to renew their contracts with their agency. They decided to leave in August 2017 after their contract expired. That was when Youngheun was introduced into the group. They continued until they held their final meeting with their fans on the 25th of February 2018. In that meeting, they revealed that Minhee and Hyeoun would not be renewing their contracts. The group decided to disband because they did not like the look Stellar had and neither did their families as they insisted that it was not what they had signed up for. The group members remain close friends till date.
