STAYC is a six-member girl group that had first debuted on Nov 12, 2020 from High Up Entertainment.  Their first song, “Star To A Young Culture”, holds a meaning behind their group name.

Producer Black Eyed Pilseung is the brains behind this new girl group and is also known for creating hit K-Pop tracks, which includes; TWICE’s “TT”, SISTAR’s “Lonely” and much more.

During a recent radio interview on ‘Hyosung’s Dreaming Radio’, The girls revealed that it took the entertainment company three years to search and find the members that had the talent and personality they were looking for.  The girls were the result. It shows!

The company diligently and tirelessly screened for applicants that did not have a past history of bullying and other future scandal producing attention.  They sincerely wanted girls that had the potential to become K-Pop idols without any future issues.

There was too much at stake.  The company didn’t want to waste any time and work to create a group that could have difficulties debuting and maintaining their name.  With that, it was a challenge to come up with the group name as well.

Online communities and netizens were surprised to find out what possible names were on the company’s list before STAYC’s debut.  Check it out below.

The names on the potential list included:
1. Oriental Girls
2. Favorites
3. Molar

The meaning behind MOLAR was that they would “chew up K-Pop with their talent.”
