Stray Kids' second full album is set to be released today, Aug. 23. The boy group is currently trending on MelOn's real-time search in South Korea, showing the high anticipation of Korean fans on the band's comeback.
"NOEASY" will contain 14 songs in total including the title track "Thunderous," which is translated to "Sorikkun" in Korean. "Sorrikun" is frequently used to refer to singers of traditional Korean music like "pansori." Stray Kids members participated in writing the lyrics and composing all the songs in this album.
At 7 p.m. KST today, Stray Kids will hold a comeback showcase for their second full album "NOEASY" and unveil the stage of "Thunderous" through Mnet's "KINGDOM WEEK" as their benefit for winning first place on "Kingdom: Legendary War."
