Stray Kids is about to release a new song. However, what makes fans most pay attention to is whether Hyunjin will make a comeback with the group or not.
On June 15th, Stray Kids’ agency JYP Entertainment made an official statement to Newsen, saying, “We are preparing for the release of the new song, and we will let you know when the exact time is confirmed.”
It has been only 7 months since Stray Kids’ latest single ‘ALL IN (Korean Ver.)’ was released in November last year. This is also their first new song released since the final victory of Mnet’s ‘Kingdom: Legendary War’ (hereinafter ‘Kingdom’), which ended on June 3.
It is also interesting whether member Hyunjin (Hwang Hyunjin) will participate in this new song. After being covered in allegations of school violence in February, Hyunjin personally met with his victims and apologized for his immature and inappropriate words and actions in the past. At the end of a sincere apology, he was forgiven by the victims.
Hyunjin’s apology is as follows:
“I sincerely apologize to those who were hurt by wrong words and actions during their school years”; he said in a handwritten statement. “Looking back on what I did when I was immature and not good enough, I feel very ashamed and have no excuses. I realized the fact that I didn’t care the others’ feelings, as well as my words and actions that time hurt them hard. It is too late. However, I will reflect deeply. I believe that it is never forgiven for inflicting an indelible wound on someone. I‘m deeply reflecting on myself because I know that the scars I left in the past do not completely disappear just because I apologized and the victims accepted it. Really sorry to have disappointed many people supporting me.”
In addition, he has all dropped out of MBC’s “Show! Music Core” and Mnet’s “Kingdom” to continue his self-reflection
When asked whether Hyunjin will participate in the new song, his management company, JYP Entertainment said, “I will keep you posted on any questions you may have once everything is decided.”
