K-pop music has skyrocketed in the past couple of years. Thanks to BTS boys, who were the pioneers of the fame the Korean music industry has today. Concurrently, many other bands took the opportunity to get themself known globally as the Dynamite singers made a massive fan-base for their industry. Besides the first famous Korean boy group BTS, many others have die-hard fans worldwide, and Stray Kids is one of them. To know more about the them, keep reading!
First steps towards fame
The boys first appeared in a singing reality show that was somehow similar to the X-Factor. The show was named Stray Kids, and that’s where the band adapted its identity from.
Their popularity on social media
Stray Kids is the second most popular on tumbler after BTS as of a report released in 2019. The band’s member Bang Chan is on the list of top 10 most talked-about Korean celebrities on the app!
The groups gained massive popularity in the past couple of years, especially in the US. The head of content insights on Tumblr, Amanda Brennen, said that the Kpop bands are gaining popularity with each passing day. There’s as much engagement for Korean bands as any other American musician.
Other than that, the band has 9.1 million followers on Instagram, 3.4 million on Twitter, and 4.5 million on youtube. That makes a total of 17 million people following them on different platforms!
The group’s early success and achievements
The boy band received 19 awards out of the 40 nominations in the past three years, and that’s pretty big because people work hard for years to reach a point where the world knows them but for Stray Kids it was just 3 years span that got them all the fame.
In my opinion, what makes the k-pop music and musicians so popular is their effort on videos. There’s so much creativity ingrained in one album that it’s hard to only listen to the song without looking at the screen. Their melodies and videos are equally engaging, and that’s what makes it stand out.
Watch the band members perform brilliantly!
