Stray Kids Named One Of TIME Magazine's

Stray Kids has made TIME magazine’s 2023 list of “Next Generation Leaders”!

On October 5 local time, TIME magazine announced Stray Kids as one of the latest additions to its annual list, which recognizes trailblazers and rising stars in a diverse array of fields including politics, business, culture, science, and sports.

Chad de Guzman wrote, “The band’s grungier headbanging anthems, which incorporate rock, EDM, and even industrial leanings, were initially criticized for being too noisy and eclectic compared to their glossier K-pop contemporaries. Yet instead of shifting gears to pander to expectations for Korean boy groups, Stray Kids embraced their distinct sound… Straying from expectations became a recipe for global success.”

The magazine also quoted Stray Kids’ Changbin as saying, “The goal is to continuously pioneer new [musical] subjects and to have our music be recognized as a ‘Stray Kids’ genre.”
