3YE (써드아이; pronounced as “third eye”) a K-pop (South Korean pop) girl group under GH Entertainment. It consists of 3 members whose names are Yuji, Yurim, and Haeun. Yuji is the Leader, Main Vocalist, Lead Dancer, Rapper, Yurim is the vocalist and Haeun is the Main Rapper, Main Dancer, Vocalist, Maknae (youngest member). Earlier the members belonged to a girl K-pop group called Apple.B. and TINT.
3YE teased their upcoming return ‘Stalker’ on April 1, 2021(12 PM KST). They posted Teaser photos on Twitter. In the first teaser photo, 3 members are standing with stage lights illuminated in the background. The girls are dressed in 1950s film noir outfits and most probably detective outfits in the film noir genre. It can be assumed that the outfit concept has been designed to match the name ‘Stalker’. If one notices minutely, it can be seen that NOIR is written in the background. The silhouettes of the 3 members look very elegant against the backlight. The monochrome color scheme and the play of light and shadow evoke an element of subtle mystery.
The second teaser photo is colored but the main color scheme here is blue. Though the picture is colored, the members’ faces are not quite as visible and thus retains the mystery element throughout the theme. The fashion does not belong to any particular decade since the members are wearing ruffles and corsets each belonging to different decades and pants which got famous after the 1960s. The consecutive teaser photos give the audience a glance at each of the members’ up-close photos. The girls are still wearing the 1950s Noir outfits combined with long earrings, which both men and women wear in today’s K-pop fashion. The women look bold, beautiful, and mysterious with hats, coats, waistcoats, and neckties combined with winged liner.
3YE also posted their comeback schedule on Twitter.

The members said Shinhwa, a “first-generation”, six-member K-pop boy band(1998), their role model. The members even have talked about difficulties they faced earlier as trainees. The girls even spoke about multiple rejections faced before debuting in 3YE. Yet they are optimistic and hope to see a bright future with the group. Their fandom is unofficially known as Eyes.
Apart from their originals, they have done a lot of covers of various songs as well as dance covers. The covers are not just restricted to American Pop but they have done Spanish Covers such as Con Calma, Indian Covers such as Dilbar, Thai Covers such as Drunk.
