Stray Kids also produces its own music, and has earned the label “singer-songwriter idols.” Three of the group’s members -- Bangchan, Changbin and Han -- co-wrote and penned their previous hit “My Pace” as well as the upcoming single “I am YOU.”

The rookie boy band was formed by JYP Entertainment and debuted in March with EP “I Am Not” fronted by “District 9.” It consists of Woojin, Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin and I.N.

Her new album is full of slow, sentimental ballads that call attention to her powerful vocals.

She gave fans a sneak preview of the new song at a two-day solo concert titled “Hyehwa Station,” held Oct. 13-14 at Yonsei University in Seoul.
