THE FIRST TAKE Welcomes K-Pop Group STRAY KIDS, For The First Time In History

Tokyo and Seoul join forces to present an online one-take performance to the world!

For the first time in the history of THE FIRST TAKE, Tokyo and Seoul join forces to present an online one-take performance to the world!

“THE FIRST TAKE”, an original series from THE FIRST TAKE YouTube channel dedicated to filming performances by musicians and singers in a single take, have made a special comeback to present a performance by the popular K-POP group, Stray Kids on the 43rd episode.

Stray Kids, who made their Japanese debut this year, filmed and recorded this episode remotely in Korea, a very first for “THE FIRST TAKE.” The song performed by Stray Kids, “SLUMP – Japanese ver. – ,” is the ending theme to the animated television series Kami No Tou – Tower Of God. The group has expressed themselves in the song by touching upon the theme of trials and tribulations, which were drawn from Han’s personal experiences.

Stray Kids have been making huge strides worldwide since their debut in 2018; with their debut album, ‘I Am Not’ skyrocketing to #1 on the iTunes Album Chart in 10 areas around the world [U.S, Mexico, Peru, Finland, Russia, Singapore, Argentina, Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand]. Their first worldwide tour, with 13 dates total, sold out completely and took place only 1 year after the band’s debut. Their impact continues to be highlighted and raved about throughout the U.S, by publications such as MTV NewsForbesBillboardAllure, and Refinery29 who stated: “…they write and compose straight from their own experiences, painting a vivid picture of the feelings that young people share all over the world.”
