Stray Kids' HyunJin has been the MC of MBC's show "Music Core" since 2019 alongside SF9's Chani and former IZ*ONE member Kim MinJu. Today, on August 9, 2021, it was announced that fellow Stray Kids member Lee Know and NCT's JungWoo will be joining MinJu as the new MCs of the show.
For STAY, it is a bittersweet day. On the one hand, with Lee Know being the new MC, STAY are overjoyed. However, the fact that HyunJin will not be the MC anymore despite his return to regular promotional activities and even more importantly, that MBC did not afford him a proper farewell, are some things that are bothering STAY.
Either way, STAY did not wait for MBC to give HyunJin a farewell but rather, took it upon themselves to make sure HyunJin felt the love. STAY worldwide trended "WE WILL MISS YOU" in response to the news of MBC's new MCs.
You did well, Hyunjin ❣️
Thank you for all the hard work, thank you for making our Saturday better
