Stray Kids is rumored to make a comeback five months after the group released its third full-length album in June.
According to multiple industry sources Tuesday, the now eight-member K-Pop boy group will announce its comeback in the K-Pop scene with a new album in November, per South Korean media outlet Joy News 24.
This rumored comeback comes after Stray Kids released its third full-length album, “5-Star,” on June 2, which brought record-breaking milestones to the group composed of Hyunjin, Felix, Bang Chan, Lee Know, I.N, Han, Seungmin and Changbin.
Before the release of “5-Star,” Stray Kids made its first two entries to the Billboard albums chart with its EPs “Oddinary” and “Maxident” in March and October 2022, respectively.
The group originally debuted as a nine-member group on March 25, 2018, with its “I Am Not” EP. Former member Woojin left the group in 2019 due to personal circumstances.
Stray Kids’ agency, JYP Entertainment, has yet to confirm the reports about the group’s rumored comeback.
