Stray Kids will celebrate the 5th anniversary of the official fan club STAY on August 1st. In order to decorate the special anniversary more meaningfully, we prepared a week exclusively for STAY for 7 days from July 26th to August 1st, and express our gratitude towards STAY, who always sends great love and support.

Among the timetables released on the official SNS channel at 0:00 on the 26th, "SKZ-RECORD" announced on August 1st especially catches the eye. Announcing a new song as part of 'SKZ-RECORD', YouTube's own content that shines through the group's strength of self-production. Expectations are high for the summer song that Stray Kids will present by realizing the season song promised in the video 'STEP OUT 2023' (Step Out 2023), which was introduced with the New Year's plan at the beginning of the year. In 'SKZ-PLAYER', which will be released together, the new song live will be released for the first time.

On the 28th, '2023 ^ㅅ^ Swoosh' (Skiz introduced by 2023 Skiz) and photoism behind-the-scenes video will visit fans.
