Bang Chan, the leader of the Korean pop group Stray Kids, recently aired episode 203 of his renowned YouTube program Chan’s Room, where he discussed numerous issues of interest and complimented BTS for their recent shoutout to Stray Kids member Felix.
BTS’ Jimin recently appeared as an impostor on the YouTube show PIXID, where he had to blend in among many K-pop fans by claiming to be one himself. During one of his online conversations, a fan claimed to be a STAY (Stray Kids’ fandom moniker) and identified Felix as her favorite member. Jimin taunted the fan, danced briefly to their smash song Maniac, and mentioned Felix.
Following this meeting, Bang Chan went to Chan’s Room to thank BTS for their nice words and generosity to the K-entertainment industry’s junior group. Bang Chan also lauded BTS for their influence on the Korean music business; and he expects to receive a personal shoutout from the group in the near future.
This touching interaction between the two organizations elicited social media comments from their admirers, known as STAYARMYs.
Furthermore, Bang Chan is thought to have just joined K-pop’s renowned 97-liner gang; which includes BTS’ Jungkook, GOT7’s Yugyeom and BamBam, ASTRO’s Cha Eun-woo, SEVENTEEN’s Mingyu, and NCT’s Jaehyun. Last year, Jungkook, Jaehyun, Cha Eun-woo, and Bang Chan were spotted leaving autographs at a beef restaurant.
Stray Kids recently marked their fifth debut anniversary, March 25, 2023; by surprising fans with a dance practice video for their beloved pre-debut hit Hellevator. Bang Chan, Lee Know, Felix, Changbin, I.N., Seungmin, Han, and Hyunjin are a skilled eight-member group; that debuted in 2018 with their EP I’m Not after releasing their pre-debut EP Mixtape in 2017.
The band is presently on their second global tour, named MANIAC; and they just played in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the tour.
