JYP Entertainment

JYP Entertainment is getting ready to debut the nine boys chosen from ‘Stray Kids’ survival show. TWICE was also created after the survival show ‘SIXTEEN’ of JYP and Mnet, that is why Stray Kids are called the male version of TWICE. The name of the group was chosen because they will show music that isn’t tied to anything.

At first, it was planned to be a seven-member group, but seeing the popularity of the nine-member, JYP decided to debut Bang Chan, WooJin, Lee Know, ChangBin, HyunJin, Han, Felix, SeungMin, and I.N all together.

Their teaser ‘Hellevator’ already gathered much attention. Also in January, they had a pre-debut extended play (EP) named ‘Mixtape’. JYP Entertainment is currently revealing more about Stray Kids through special episodes named ‘INTRO: I am NOT’.

They will finally debut on March 26th.
