In fact, as of the writing of this article, the music video for "CASE 143" has surpassed 37 million views on YouTube.


Meanwhile, Stray Kids' "MAXIDENT" made history in Hanteo.

Stray Kids cements itself as K-Pop's top 4th generation idol group right now!

With its newest EP, Stray Kids is proving its dominance in the tough K-Pop arena. It is recently reported that Stray Kid's "MAXIDENT" sold a whopping 2.18 million copies in the first week of its release. This does not only broke Stray Kid's own first-week sales record of 853k for "ODDINARY" but puts the idol group just below BTS in Hanteos' "K-Pop Idol Groups With The Highest First-Week Sales" ranking.


Not only that but Stray Kids' "MAXIDENT" is currently the fourth K-Pop album with the highest first-week sales of all time. Bested only by BTS' "Map of the Soul: 7," "Proof," and "BE."

In addition, Stray Kids is also the best-selling 4th-generation K-Pop idol group this 2022. The JYP Entertainment boy group has sold almost 4 million copies this year alone and the number is expected to increase as we approach the end of the year.
