Released on March 25, the song and its music video is for Stray Kids’ newest mixtape project, Mixtape: On Track. This is their next release after Mixtape: Gone Days earlier in December 2019.

With its calm melody and expressive rap like last year’s “Levanter”, “Even A Fool Knows” is a softer tune compared to the rest of the group’s discography.

Besides being released on the day of their second anniversary, the song was made even more special with Changbin’s participation in composing and writing its lyrics.

As for its music video, the members of the group displayed their acting skills by carrying on a storyline reminiscent of a Korean drama. Taking on a school setting, “Even A Fool Knows” shows them as students preparing a film project.

Playing the “lead character” of the storyline, Hyunjin is shown as the cameraman for the film project which stars a female lead, who he is shown to have a secret crush on, and Lee Know.

While filming their project, the two are shown to be very close to each other—which makes Hyunjin jealous. As a close friend to Hyunjin, I.N, who is also one of the three lead characters in the film project, notices his reactions to the two.

At the end of the music video, the rapper finally steps in between the female lead and Lee Know—and the end card of “Even A Fool Knows” excitingly says “To be continued”.
