Here is my essay about Stray Kids’ music’s impact on my life:
“Other K-pop artists for which I am so grateful include Stray Kids and NCT. Their catalogs became shining examples of the upsides to experiencing sights and sounds so intensely. I internalize painful media at a deeper level than most, but I also get an abnormal high from soaking in the media that hits all the right buttons in my brain! These artists’ immersive soundscapes and eye-popping, eventful music videos left me euphoric enough to stop ‘masking’ in some situations. It was huge when I started to crave the natural high of their discographies enough to surpass my concern with being judged…”
Here is my latest write-up about what makes Stray Kids’ music shine:
“The ‘MEGAVERSE’ concept that allows Stray Kids to blur the lines between passive and active participants in the unfolding events proves to perfectly suit them… Stray Kids shine by not seizing the spotlight or shying away from it, but by expanding it to envelope everyone! What matters to them is not so much how people interpret their stories so much as the fact they indeed feel invited to help interpret them. However people read into the details is fine with them; after all, they are not the script writers any more than you are!”
