Stray Kids to Drop a New Song - Will Hyunjin Join the Comeback?
On June 15, JYP Entertainment announced that Stray Kids is currently preparing to release a new song. The exact date of the group's return is yet to be revealed once the company has finalized all details.
This is the first time in about ten months that Stray Kids will drop new music in their home country since their repackaged album, "In Life," in September last year.
The upcoming release will also be Stray Kids' first new song since their final victory on Mnet's idol competition show "Kingdom: Legendary War," which concluded on June 3.
What makes this comeback more interesting is that whether Stray Kids Hyunjin will participate in this new song. The male idol has been inactive in group activities since February after being caught up in a bullying controversy.
While Hyunjin and JYPE personally met with the alleged victims, as well as his former classmates and teachers, there was no conclusion whether the school violence did take place due to the difference in memory of the people involved.

Nevertheless, Stray Kids Hyunjin apologized for his immature and inappropriate words and actions that may have hurt the claimed victims. The "Hellevator" rapper and the individuals involved then resolved the misunderstanding between them. Despite this, Stray Kids member Hyunjin took a break from group activities.
When asked about Hyunjin's participation in Stray Kids' new song, JYP Entertainment said that once all the details have been confirmed, they will announce it soon.
