The video starts in May 2018, as the boy band flies to Bangkok, their first destination, where their fans are milling about at the airport to catch a glimpse of them. Waving and bowing to the fans, the band heads straight to the venue for a rehearsal and a final adjustment for the performance. Jinyoung makes a detailed suggestion on the lighting to the satisfaction of the staff and the members.

Leader JB lets the camera follow him to his room and shares his recent reflections: “how to make more people know us … see that we are a band that makes good music.”

On the day of taking to the stage, the bandmates seemed relaxed and full of excitement even having a live chat with their fans via V Live. But behind the curtain readying to step out in front of their fans, the seven members were flexing their muscles and battling their nerves.

“I wanted to bring the camera with me for the encore, but since this is the first stage, decided to focus more on the performance instead. Maybe tomorrow,” said Bambam.

With a new backdrop that resembled an urban jungle from the music video of the album’s title song, the nine members reappeared waving and saying hi to the fans gathered in front of them. Thanking them and those logged into the V Live channel, the band describing themselves as the one with “strong energy, positivity and ambition.”

“With this album we will show you how someone reflects on himself and grows up becoming an adult,” said Woojin. And the confidence that comes from it, added Changbin. Expressing hope that more will learn about Stray Kids and what they want to say, leader Bang Chan said, “If many can gain energy from our music that will be the ultimate best acknowledgement.”

“My nickname is Tzumeong, and Yoda,” the idol began, smiling. She ate some bread before taping the show. Bread has been her favorite food recently, she said adding that she wants to try her hands at cooking.

When asked what the most important thing in her life is, the 20-year-old sheepishly admitted that it was her cellphone. This year’s resolution is “to become smarter,” she said before confessing that she hated studying when she was younger.

If given a month off her schedule, she would like to travel with her family, said Tzuyu picking Switzerland as her top destination.

“I’ve always wanted to be a singer … and I cannot forget my first concert,” she said.
