He was seen only for one episode of Kingdom: Legendary War which was shot prior to his temporary hiatus. Fans across the world trended his name and expressed how this win was for Hyunjin too since Stray Kids is 8 members always, no matter what. We congratulate Stray Kids for winning the Kingdom: Lengendary War Crown.
If you’re wondering about what the winners for Kingdom: Legendary War will get, worry not for we have you covered. Since Stray Kids was announced as the winner, they will now get a reality show of their own. They will also get a Kingdom Week special show. These prizes will let Stray Kids show more of their talents and music to their fans – the STAYs. Due to the pandemic, the K-Pop industry faced huge losses. While new music was released, performances which are a major pillar of K-Pop were completely on a halt for around a year. Stray Kids have the golden opportunity to make up for all the missed opportunities. And we also hope to see Hyunjin, a very talented performer, back in action soon.
