Stray Kids’ Hyunjin will resume with the group’s activities this July. It is an official announcement by JYP Entertainment. After his four-month hiatus, Hyunjin is finally back!
As midnight struck in South Korea on June 26th, a big surprise shook STAYs (Stray Kids’ fandom) as SKZ dropped an MV entitled “OH” for their latest mixtape.
Here, you’ll see all of SKZ’s eight members complete. So yes, Hyunjin is back where he belongs.
It’s been a long time since he was on hiatus from the group’s activities because of issues involving him back in February.
Last February, JYP Entertainment showed that they had to halt Stray Kids’ Hyunjin’s commitments in the entertainment industry. The allegations regarding Hyunjin that he was once involved with perpetrating school violence had to be investigated further.
Here you’ll read JYP Entertainment’s statement back then;
Hello, this is JYPE.
We are writing to inform you about Stray Kids’ Hyunjin’s future activities. The agency has been contacting the people in charge of all the activities Hyunjin had previously scheduled to participate in, investigating the best way to cancel the activities that would minimize the harm done to them.
This process took some time, so this statement on Hyunjin’s future activities was also inevitably delayed. Hyunjin will take the time to self-reflect after halting all of his activities as a celebrity.
He sincerely regrets and is self-reflecting on the fact that he hurt various people in middle school with his rough and unsuitable words. He has sincerely apologized to those who were hurt and is doing his best so that those people can heal from those wounds.
We sincerely apologize for causing such serious concern with this issue.

Later on June 26th morning, the agency made a statement announcing;
“During his break from activities, Hyunjin has reflected on himself while donating and participating in volunteer work.”
What’s more, JYP entertainment added the most important information;
“Starting from July, Hyunjin will be rejoining Stray Kids’ scheduled activities, and he plans to show an even more upstanding attitude and mature mindset during his promotions.”
The members Bang Chan, Lee Know, Changbin, Hyunjin, Han, Felix, Seungmin, and IN are preparing for their comeback soon.
