Stray Kids is a popular 4th generation South Korean boy group under the K-pop agency JYP Entertainment. The K-pop group Stray Kids was created via the survival program with the exact same name, "Stray Kids." 

After the finalists were selected, JYP Entertainment's Stray Kids made their debut on the 25th of March, 2018. Currently, the K-pop boy group has released 11 albums.

The group currently consists of eight members. The members being Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and I.N. 

Initially, there was a 9th member, Woojin. Woojin left the group on the 27th of October, 2019 after a personal scandal and a termination of his contract.

Currently, Stray Kids is participating in Mnet's survival show, "Kingdom: Legendary War" and is currently doing well. Other groups who participated are BtoBiKon, SF9, The Boyz, and Ateez. 

Beyond this, after 2 years of being active, Stray Kids have finally been dubbed the K-pop group's first-ever gold certification in the land of the rising sun, Japan!

The 8th of April was a special day for Stray Kids and their fans, Stays, as the K-pop group's Japanese single entitled "TOP," was officially dubbed a golden certification after going beyond 100,000 album sales by the Recording Industry Association of Japan (RIAJ).

During 2020, JYP Entertainment's Stray Kids dropped "TOP" in three languages. The languages being Korean, English, and Japanese. This was due to the part of their OST for "Tower of God," an animated series. 

Stray Kids' gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of Japan was for the Japanese version of the track. The song even topped the Oricon's daily and weekly singles charts, both right after its release in June of 2020. 

As per the certification threshold of the Recording Industry Association of Japan, albums that are able to sell 100,000 copies are dubbed a golden certification, 250,000 sales are dubbed with a platinum certification, and with 500,000 sales, a double-platinum certification.

Congratulations to Stray Kids, Stays, and JYP Entertainment for the laurel! Stray Kids on top!
