Financial analyst, Lee Ki Hoon of Hana Financial Investment, stated that the new JYP Entertainment boy group is capable of becoming the next big thing in K-Pop and grow internationally like BTS.
On March 28, he stated, "Stray Kids is expanding their fandom globally with their successful debut" and added that JYP Entertainment is looking to have a major jump financially with a new girl group most likely debuting in early 2019.
Meanwhile, Stray Kids recently made their hot debut with 'I am NOT'. Their MV for "District 9" quickly became the most viewed debut MV on the first day, breaking the record set by Wanna One.
On this, the expert said, "The high MV views are positive indicators. In 2018, Stray Kids is expected to sell around 300,000 copies in album sales." In addition, "Considering the absence of rookie idols in 2018, the disbandment of an audition (show) group in 2019, and their sincere music, Stray Kids is more than qualified to become the one artist that is capable of leading a generation like Big Bang and BTS."
