The votes are in! Stellar’s special goodbye stage (Update #43)

Fans were asked previously to select their favourite version of each member, either Sephiroth or Qliphoth, and the final votes are in!

Here is the teaser from MCountdown for the special performance, which will also be their goodbye stage.

It looks like fans overwhelmingly liked Stellar member’s dark side, leaving only Minhee as a Sephiroth.

Please look forward to the final performance when it broadcasts 2017.07.20 (tomorrow!) 🙂

32path

1-frame scene (Update #40)

Following this tip by Kris Borsch:

1:46-1:48 of their new OFFICIAL dance video. Something is put in a frame! It must be a qr code or SOMETHING!

I checked the video, and indeed something seemed to glitch in and out as I watched the video.

By playing the video frame-by-frame, I discovered this single frame scene that caused the glitch at 1:47.

What significance does this scene have? Could it just be an editing glitch? (I doubt this), or could it be a clue to solving some of the 32path rings? Remembering that there were some 32path puzzles where members are all looking in different directions (ie in their dark concept Hokmat ring image), and this scene reminds me of that.

Note also, that the lyrics being sung at the time is: “saengmyeongui namuwie” / “생명의 나무위에” / “On top of the tree of life”.

Let’s get to work fellow Twinkle puzzle hunters and detectives! ^^

STELLAR Staff Responds (Update #36)

I made a fancafe post about the hidden online store as well, and the official STELLAR staff account replied.

2017-07-02

It reads – STELLAR:

“dlfjwlaktpdy” that sound is one of Easter Egg to you 🙂 probably, will open soon digital contants and goods to easily get it !

I pretty sure it’s Seonghwa Team Leader that wrote the comment. The “dlfjwlaktpdy” as described before, means “Don’t Do This”, and as far as I can tell, he’s saying that the message is directed at me (and telling me to stay away) hahaha.

My reply – Dengke Sha:

HAHAHAHAHA I suspected as much 😛 (알줄 알았어요~! ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ :P) Since I found the forum too early too hehehehe. 감사합니다 성화팀장님 🙂 영광이에요 ^^

I thanked Seonghwa Team Leader and told him it was an honor to have an easter egg directed at me.

So, it’s been confirmed! Look forward to digital content and Stellar merchandise on the Official Stellar Online Store soon 🙂

Light Counter vs. Dark Counter (Update #24)

Here’s an interesting take on the reason why there are different counter stylings for the Fake Code video page and the Real Code video page.

SuchAComplicatedComebackILoveIt:

could it be that the “fake” code is actually the real site we should be aiming for?

Light counter (“Fake” site) meaning the support for angels; dark counter (“Real” site) supporting the archangels [sic].

So potentially, based on the final counter values, it determines whether Soyoung joins the Archangels, or whether she joins the Witches.

Here are the different counter stylings again for your reference.

Fake Code video counter:

2017-06-28 (6) - Copy

Real Code video counter:

2017-06-28 (4) - Copy

The alternate interpretation that we had before was that the styling could change once a particular threshold is hit. I think we should test this by getting the Fake Code video counter to 5000+

Help us achieve that by visiting the page to bump that hit counter up!

Sitemap & Forum (Update #22)

So I noticed that http://www.stellarintotheworld.com was created using wix. Doing a quick Google search, I discovered that wix automatically creates an up-to-date sitemap.xml for each site. You can view it here.

As you can see, it exposes the links that we have discovered already (and will show any future pages uploaded).

It’s also not possible to manually edit this sitemap 🙂 – your move Pascal 😛 (Edit 2017.06.28 6:07pm KST: It’s also possible that Pascal knew this sitemap would be exposed and intended to be dissected by fans – this has been the case with other ARGs in the past. You’ll notice most of the pages don’t seem to do anything, possibly because they haven’t been called from the right place).

Update 2017.06.28, 6:38pm KST – Point of interest: It looks like TEP might be releasing a forum for International Stellar fans to be at. If you check this link (http://www.stellarintotheworld.com/blank-1/), a Wix forum is there (but not properly set up), and it has it’s own animated background as well.

I registered an account using Facebook lol.

Update 2017.06.28, 6:17pm KST – Extra info from Pasi Tappola 🙂

By looking source code of the page, all currently supported codes are: path1 (login page to quest area), {path2 path3 path4 path5 path6 path7 path8 path9 path10 sephiroth “Sephiroth”} (empty frames, login needed?), sephiroth-1 “32path”, fldjr “진짜코드”, vpdlzm “가짜코드”, blank “커밍순” (redirect to main page), s-pace “Home” and blank-1 “Twinkle” (“Wix 게시판”).

All codes can be found by searching “pageUriSEO” from source code.

Angels vs. Witches, revisited (Update #21)

Marije:

i posted a theory on my account yooripics. it’s that in the music video teaser you can obviously see that jeonyul and gayoung are witches and hyoeun and minhee are angels. now soyoung is either “neutral” or an angel queen because on timeframe 0:26 you can see her on a throne and hyoeun and minhee “worshipping” her. on timeframe 0:09 you can see jeonyul and gayoung covering soyoung in a black substance, i’m guessing pitch. maybe a ritual to make her join the witches? i think either the angels and witches are battling to make soyoung join their “team” or the witches are “stealing” the angel queen from the angels

Marije actually sent this info to me when the teaser was released, but I missed it since I was still on my plane to Korea at the time. It’s still relevant now so I wanted to post it up. It’s very much what the MV is about (confirmed by members at their showcase) 🙂

Fake Code (Update #20)

The Korean Twinkles have discovered a new video!

unknown:

hi, i’m korean twinkle.
we found it : http://www.stellarintotheworld.com/vpdlzm

진짜=real=리얼=fldjk
가짜=fake=페이크=vpdlzm

My explanation: If you look at the title of the page we found by scanning the QR Code, it says “Real Code” in Korean. The odd string of characters “fldjk” when typed with the Korean Keyboard being enabled gives the word “리얼” (“Real”). Reversing this logic, if you type in “페이크” (“Fake”) as if you were typing Korean, but with the English keyboard enabled, you get the string “vpdlzm”.

Replacing the string “vpdlzm” at the end of the URL takes you to the “Fake Code” video, also with a counter at the bottom.

2017-06-28 (6)

Perhaps we need to find all the videos and bring the view count to a certain threshold to unlock something, from the clue “Watch All Videos”.

There may also be slight differences between the Real Code and Fake Code videos – please someone comb the two videos for details, and let us know if you spot any differences!

Note that the counter is styled differently to the Real Code video page – I wonder if the styling shows whether or not the sufficient threshold has been reached.

Fake Code video counter:

2017-06-28 (6) - Copy

Real Code video counter:

2017-06-28 (4) - Copy
