As of late, STAYC are promoting their most recent release, “Teddy Bear,” and just made an appearance on JTBC‘s K-909 series.

The group filmed content as part of their appearance, including a video where members Sieun and Yoon did vocal covers of the chart-topping K-Pop songs for the first week of May.

Some songs on their cover list included NCT DoJaeJung‘s “Perfume,”…

NMIXX‘s “Love Me Like,”…

…and IVE‘s “I AM.”

Many fans praised their vocals, and appreciated the “crumbs” between STAYC and the groups they covered. Fans were especially in love with their cover of FIFTY FIFTY‘s “Cupid.”

Others were a little more conflicted over the covers, saying that while the two members are talented vocalists, they did not harmonize in the covers enough.

Clips of their covers have gone viral on TikTok, earning more than a million views and thousands of comments. Many specifically say that Yoon’s vocals were too powerful compared to Sieun’s softer singing style.

Following the release of the video, Yoon and Sieun sent messages on the Dear. U Bubble platform, talking about their covers. Yoon specifically stated how difficult doing the songs were and that she tried her best.

Global Chart in 99 Seconds! It was completely live, so it was difficult. But I tried my best. I feel like I could probably do better if I tried again. There’s no need for regrets, I know. But I guess I wanted to do really well since I was performing other artists’ songs…
