STAYC on ‘Inkigayo’: Breaking Beyond Teen Fresh with ‘Cheeky Icy Thang’ and ‘1 Thing’

STAYC (members Sumin, Sieun, Isa, Seeun, Yoon, and J) have boldly transformed beyond their “Teen Fresh” image into a cheeky and vibrant mode. The group made a captivating appearance on SBS’s ‘Inkigayo’ on July 7, performing tracks from their first full-length album ‘Metamorphic,’ including the title track ‘Cheeky Icy Thang’ and the B-side ‘1 Thing.’

Prior to their comeback stage, STAYC engaged in an interview with the show’s MCs, introducing ‘Cheeky Icy Thang’ and demonstrating the cheeky point choreography involving finger movements. Embracing the ‘Inkigayo Cinema’ concept, Sieun recommended and performed a live rendition of the ‘Frozen’ OST, adding a cinematic touch to the show.

The group’s performance of ‘1 Thing’ signaled their comeback. STAYC captivated the audience with their enhanced visuals, catchy melody, and mesmerizing performance, marked by arm-stretching choreography and individual vocal showcases that filled the stage with energy.

The momentum continued with their performance of ‘Cheeky Icy Thang.’ STAYC delivered a cool yet audacious attitude with their dynamic performance, featuring striking choreography that involved playful hand and finger movements, leaving a lasting impression on viewers.

STAYC’s debut full-length album ‘Metamorphic’ signifies ‘change’ and showcases their evolved concept, visual transformation, and upgraded capabilities. The album contains 14 tracks that highlight the members’ wide musical spectrum.

The title track ‘Cheeky Icy Thang’ is a synth-pop song characterized by a funky shuffle rhythm. It embodies STAYC’s cool yet bold attitude, created by the trusted combination of High Up Entertainment’s leading producer, Black Eyed Pilseung (B.E.P), and STAYC. The unique musical style has captivated listeners worldwide.

STAYC plans to continue engaging with fans through music show appearances and various content following their comeback with their first full-length album.
