Hyunjin, a member of the sensational K-pop group Stray Kids, graced the cover of the May issue of ELLE Korea magazine, revealed on April 15th.

In an extensive photo shoot that even challenged him to dive into water, Hyunjin showcased his dedication and focus, impressing everyone on set. Speaking about the energy he felt preparing for Stray Kids’ fourth official fan meeting in March titled “SKZ’S MAGIC SCHOOL,” Hyunjin expressed, “Getting ready for it, it felt like we were practicing for our fans, and that same energy followed me today.” It felt like STAYs were here with me all along, and that motivated me to give my best.”

Hyunjin also discussed Stray Kids’ recent achievements, including their win at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards where their third full album’s title track “S-Class” clinched Best K-Pop. And their latest title track “‘LALALALA” of ROCK-STAR made history by entering the Billboard Hot 100, a first for a fourth-generation boy group. “I believe that the unseen effort and process are more important, and the results will follow. I still don’t want to be satisfied; I want to achieve more. We’ve come this far step by step thanks to the love of our fans, and if our skills don’t live up to that, it would be truly shameful,” the idol remarked.

When asked about the values he holds dear, Hyunjin emphasized “friendship.” He shared, “I’ve come to think friendship is a profound emotion. We’re already in our seventh year, but the affection we have for our team is still special. If this friendship continues to be my strong pillar, there’s nothing to fear in the future.”
