Stray Kids' huge popularity in Japan

  • They've really blown up with CASE143. I'm happy there are people other than me that appreciate that song like it deserves :teddy-pepe:

    Since they've started their dome tour now (with 8 Japan dates in Tokyo Dome, Kyocera Dome Osaka, Fukuoka PayPay Dome, Vantelin Dome Nagoya), I got to thinking about how their popularity there really skyrocketed since last year especially. They've had a nice following for a while, but now they're really up there. So I thought I'd make a thread with some of their stats to acknowledge it.


    At this point, is Japan their biggest/main market? It's at least 2nd biggest. They've really built on their momentum so far which is good.


    First: Since I already mentioned the dome tour, 2,5M is crazy:

    Also just very random, but since I liked Alice in Borderland, it was fun to see one of the actresses be a big fan!

    Lastly, I want to mention their 1st Japanese EP releasing soon featuring LiSA (very popular and has made many anime intros, like Demon Slayer!). It'd be sick if she performed with them at one of the concerts

  • They are the active boygroup with the best digitals in Japan, on top of that are physical monsters and a mega touring force there. It's definitely their biggest market.


    To be honest, I'm mostly positive when It comes to Stray Kids and usually I don't doubt their potential, but I didn't expect Japan to be their biggest market. And I'm glad It is, cause It's a very solid and loyal audience they will need to keep making money when they aren't on top anymore.

  • Look SK are definitely very successful in Japan but about the best selling list, I’m pretty sure those sales include their Japanese album released this year. I might be wrong but I don’t think SVT, Txt or Enhypen have released a Japanese album this year.

    TXT did. Enhypen will release a single and Seventeen an album in the next few days/weeks.

    I'm very happy for them as well. Japan is the 2nd biggest music market in the world after all, so if they have a solid fandom there, like you said - then they're set for a long time.

  • I DID!!! Pains be to wait so long for it to release lol. ;( And I really like LiSA's vocals on it.


    Did you?

    I absolutely loved it. I've been watching the live performance over and over again waiting for it to drop on streaming plataforms, cause Lisa's vocals on chorus and Felix's part on the bridge can't get out of my head. It's really catchy.


    I'm usually not excited for japanese releases, but this time I can't explain, It will just be THAT song.

  • The way this MV teaser is coming for 1,8M views in 2 days. A japanese comeback :skull:

    Lol SAME, I keep listening to it on Twitter! It repeats in my head so I always wanna listen again. It seems like it'll easily end up as my favorite Japanese SKZ song. By far the most excited I've been too for a Jap. release!
