Seungmin stated that there’s something that one can make during a certain time and age in life. He said, “The sounds, the emotions, the feelings when you make lyrics, the feeling is now. I couldn’t see it, but now I do because of the memories that STAY gave us.”

Going back to one of the memories, Seungmin said that when he sang his SKZ-PLAYER, he went to the original songwriter and recorded it next to them. He said that as soon as he got the recordings he thought to himself, “I have to give this to STAY immediately,” and that’s how his “You Were Beautiful” cover came up.

Leader Bang Chan said that he loves making music because it’s fun and that it helps him relieve stress. He insisted that whenever he’s making something new, he feels like he’s on a new journey.

Making a heartwarming confession, he also said, “Home. Stray Kids is home.”
