5 HIDDEN Facts REVEALED in Stray Kids “ODDINARY” Comeback Album Preparation
Indeed, you may have mastered everything through this guide on Stray Kids new “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album. However, there are various exciting facts hidden in the making process of Stray Kids new “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album. And today, we are going to reveal all of them!
1. Stray Kids Felix was Extremely Upset During New “ODDINARY” Comeback Mini-Album Preparation
Firstly, did you know that Stray Kids Lee Felix was distraught during the preparation for their new “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album?
Yes, in their “ODDINARY” Intro, Stray Kids Hyunjin stated that although Felix was still able to participate in the comeback, he couldn’t give his 100% this time. As previously reported, Lee Felix suffered a back injury that limited him from having strenuous activities. That is why he has to limit himself for the new “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album to recover more quickly. And according to Hyunjin, that upsets Felix so much.
2. Preparing for “ODDINARY” Comeback Mini-Album Makes I.N Extremely Nervous
While the preparation for the “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album makes Felix upset, Stray Kids I.N, on the other hand, felt extremely nervous.
According to I.N, Stray Kids previously achieved high accomplishments with their “NOEASY” million-selling album. That is why he felt tremendous pressure while preparing “ODDINARY”. He wondered whether STAY fans would like “ODDINARY” as much as “NOEASY”.
Stray Kids I.N first heard “MANIAC” while he was eating, and he thought it was an extraordinary song, completely different from the previous ones. At the same time, once he heard “Lonely St.” he fell in love immediately. And since he knew that “ODDINARY” would be a unique project from Stray Kids, I.N really hoped that STAY fans would like this new album.
3. 3RACHA Once Again Directed and Supervised the Whole Preparation
There is no more doubt that one of the crucial keys of Stray Kids’ success lies in its core unit, 3RACHA. Just as they have done previously in “NOEASY” album preparation, 3RACHA also fully supervised the preparation and production process of Stray Kids new “ODDINARY” comeback album.
Consisting of the geniuses Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han, 3RACHA is the core unit producer of Stray Kids. They wrote, composed, and arranged all the songs in Stray Kids albums. Some might even say that 3RACHA is the main reason why JYP Entertainment can save so much budget from song productions to allocate them for other purposes like choreography and cinematics.
In new “ODDINARY” comeback mini-album preparation, Stray Kids 3RACHA also directed and supervised the whole thing. Just like before, Changbin personally sat in front of the recording booth with Bang Chan and Han to make sure that the songs came out like how these geniuses had expected.
4. DANCERACHA Coordinated the Choreography During Practice
While 3RACHA owned the recording process of Stray Kids “ODDINARY” comeback album, the dance studio entirely belongs to Stray Kids’ DANCERACHA: Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Felix.
During the practice session of the “MANIAC” title song, the whole dance studio fell into the hands of Stray Kids dance unit: DANCERACHA. And since Felix had to restrain himself this time due to his injury, Hyunjin and Lee Know, stepped in to make sure that all the nooks and details in the choreography appeared complete and precise for all the members.
5. What’s the Core Motivation that Keeps Stray Kids Going?
Preparing for a new album has always been a defining moment for idols when they feel immense pressure and excitement. For Stray Kids, the tension and excitement are double because they would be the ones who created and performed all the songs by themselves.
So, what’s the core motivation that keeps Stray Kids going in the midst of all the pressure and challenging moments? It’s STAY.
During the “ODDINARY” Intro, Lee Know stated that the main message they wanted to carry out from the songs is one: “We always miss you, our beloved fans, STAY.”
Along with Lee Know, Changbin added that STAY has always been his main inspiration. And there is NEVER a moment where he didn’t miss STAY.
“There isn’t a moment when I haven’t missed STAY.”Stray Kids Changbin.
