Stray Kids Members Official Instagram Accounts
Secondly, Changbin of Stray Kids seemed to gain the most attention for his unique Instagram handle.
Combining his nickname, Man of Principles, or Jutdae (줏대) in Korean, with his SKZOO character Dwaekki, Changbin signed up on Instagram as @jutdwae.
Moreover, not only jutdwae combines the two names, but in Korean Jutdwae (좆돼(다) actually means “f*cked up” or in bad circumstances. That is why STAY praises Changbin for creating the most genius Instagram username among Stray Kids members.
Next is Prince Hyunjin of Stray Kids, who decided to make a simple but memorable handle, @hynjinnnn.
At the same time, Stray Kids’ exquisite member, famous for his deep voice and impressive duality Lee Felix joined Instagram as @yong.lixx. The username combines both his Korean name, Yong Bok, and English name Lee Felix.
Stray Kids’ main vocalist Seungmin is next on the line to join the platform. He created a simple username @miniverse.___.. This simple username made fans joke that Seungmin had defeated his fans by creating a handle resembling a fan page. Fans would have to fight him to create such a username in the future.
Finally, the sweet maknae of Stray Kids, I.N., decided to follow his hyungs and created an account as @i.2.n.8. As adorable as the owner, I.N.’s Instagram handle simply combines his stage name I and N with his birthday, February 8.
Why Han and Lee Know Did Not Create Their IG Accounts
Finally, all Stray Kids members seemed to be enjoying their new space on Instagram, except Han and Lee Know. The two members decided to skip the event, and it was not without reasons.
During a conversation on JYPNation’s Bubble platform, Stray Kids Han explained his reasons. According to Han, he wasn’t ready to create such a personal social media account. Therefore, he would still use Stray Kids’ official account to post news about himself.
“I decided not to make a social media account because I just don’t feel ready yet.
But please don’t worry because I will still upload good news on our official account. I don’t know much about personal social media accounts, so I’ll make one when I feel ready. And I will show you a lot of things!”Stray Kids Han via Bubble.
Meanwhile, Stray Kids Lee Know has a different reason. Apparently, Stray Kids Lee Know does not have much interest in using the platform. He believes that chatting via Bubble is more comfortable. Therefore, he has no intention of creating a personal Instagram account for now.
“This (Bubble) is more comfortable for me. I don’t really intend to make an Instagram account. So, instead of talking about it, please recommend something for lunch to me.”Stray Kids Lee Know via Bubble.
Still, being the goofiest of the Stray Kids members, Lee Know then went to the group’s official Instagram account. He then posted a doodle and selfies with a caption declaring that Stray Kids’ official Instagram account now belongs to him.
“This place is mine now! *giggle giggle giggle giggle* #leeknowiscute.”Stray Kids Lee Know.
And fans joked that Stray Kids Lee Know now owns the Instagram account with the fastest followers gain among all Kpop idols.
