His Musical Journey – From A Trainee To Stray Kids’ Leader
Although Bang Chan is living his dream now, his journey until now was not easy. At age 13, Bang Chan became trained at JYP Entertainment. He has given seven years of his life for idol training and even went through tough times watching his trainee friends debuting without him. Finally, an opportunity arrived in 2016 when the rapper became a part of the ‘3RACHA’ unit with Han and Changbin. With 3RACHA members, Bang Chan released a mixtape J:/2017/mixtape, two EPs, 3Days and Horizon, and three singles, Start Line, Zone, and Carpe Diem.
Even though Bang Chan’s working as 3RACHA, they never debuted officially but were only a sub-unit under JYP Entertainment. Therefore, the golden opportunity finally came in 2017. In 2017, JYP formed Stray Kids, a group of eight members, Bang Chan, Changbin, Lee Know, Han, Hyunjin, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N, through the reality show of the same name. The kpop group began working on their first project and released their pre-debut EP Mixtape in January 2018. Eventually, Stray Kids officially debited with the EP I AM Not in March 2018, where Bang Chan also debuted as the leader.
Since its debut, Bang Chan has been working as a songwriter, composer, leader, vocalist, rapper, and dancer for the group. Stray Kids has various hits tracks with such an excellent talent in the group, such as God’s Menu, Back Door, Thunderous, MIROH, etc. Currently, the group’s working on their second Japanese EP, which will be released on 22 June 2022. Therefore, fans should get ready for another outstanding music piece by Stray Kids’ Bang Chan!
What Is Bang Chan’s Net Worth?
As of 2022, Stray Kids’ leader Bang Chan’s net worth is $1 million to $5 million (approximately). However, a large part of his income comes from his music career. Bang Chan is one of the most talented artists when it comes to songwriting and composing. He has worked on more than 15 Stray Kids albums and 5+ 3RACHA albums. It shows how passionate and capable he is of composing and songwriting. If we actually count, there are 50+ Stray Kids songs and more than 20 3RACHA songs under his name. It shows he has given himself to the group.
Although Bang Chan is a lyricist and composer, the return he gets may not be as much as he deserves. In the Kpop industry, the groups don’t get much payment for the first 2 to 3 years after their debut. After all, their early years’ profit is considered a payment to the company for their training, various lessons fees, etc. It has been more than four years since Stray Kids’ debut. Therefore, there is a possibility that Bang Chan will receive more returns considering his talent and growing popularity.
Bang Chan had participated in the reality show Stray Kids and even appeared in music videos for Miss A and TWICE. Since 2019, rapper Bang Chan has been doing solo live broadcasts called Chan’s Room. Furthermore, Bang Chan, with the other Stray Kids members, has been selected as the muses for Mahagrid 2022 Summer T-Shirt Campaign. Along with the members, he is also the ambassador for Bench, a Philippine clothing brand. It may not be much, but Bang Chan’s net worth is the fruit of his hard work. Thus, hopefully, fans may continue supporting him and shower him with the love he deserves!
