1, 2, 3! (INTRO : "Clé 1 : MIROH") March 25th, 2019 Stray Kids are back with "Clé 1 : MIROH" We are back! We released 'I am' series last year, which consists of "I am NOT", "I am WHO", and "I am YOU" The last scene of "I am YOU" MV was gazing into the distance on the top of a building We couldn't find the answer to 'I am' series, though Through this new album, we want to reach there with our people who support and cheer us Wherever it will be, we'll reach there with confidence and ambition 'We, Stray Kids' 9 members Let's enter a new world getting out of "District 9" 'I am' series was our real story Since we made our debut, shows and stages have become the new world to enter We wanted to talk about how we will survive there That's why we started a new album, "Clé 1 : MIROH"
We didn't know anything when we released "District 9" We were just wild and authentic But now because we bonded together, we'd like to show more ambitious and active look through "MIROH" 'Entrance' means a door that allows access to a place I wanted to make a movie out of it I took part in arrangement The first part starts with the sound of Congo drum It conveys the atmosphere of the jungle, rather than the city I wanted to express the sound of opening the door with Clé It suggests that the place is harsh like the jungle It's hard to describe in words You should listen to the song You should imagine listening to the song The new album contains our emotions that we feel in the process of moving from "District 9"
to a brand new world The songs about ambition and confidence before we get into the world are "Victory Song", "Boxer", and "MIROH" The song about our fear of passing the limit is "19" The song that shows our complicated thoughts and feelings is "Maze of Memories" The song that shows anxiety about being chased is "Chronosaurus" My favourite song of the album is "Boxer" Under the theme of 'Boxer', it says 'I'll crush everything that stand in my way' It's about great ambition You'll be impressed by its thumping beat While I was making the new album, I was imagining that I was a game character defeating the monsters in a maze "Boxer" has an impressive intro Most of our fans will be surprised when they hear the intro part
We didn't want to make it sound ordinary We wanted to create a special intro that will make people surprised You'll notice that all rap members including me have improved a lot I directed Lee Know's rapping part and I was surprised at his powerful voice His unique empty feeling is well described in this song I wanted to say 'I will crush all the things that stand in my way' through the lyrics This song will be a perfect choice when you exercise, or play games It'll match perfectly It's a song of trap music It consists of deep rapping parts from the beginning to the end If you run in the "MIROH"
You'll be chased by something and get lost While I was taking time out, I realized that I had too many thoughts in my mind while I was running Its lyrics reflect my complicated thoughts and concerns Changbin looks so cool in "Maze of Memories" HAN and Yongbok, too The rapping part is so cool 3RACHA did a wonderful job (What about you, Hyunjin?) I look cool, too I think I look cool, too It's awkward to say The rapping part was not easy, but they gave me a chance to try, thank you I hadn't tried that kind of unique rap in my life I practiced a lot because it has a special beat It's kind of serious rap
When I heard it for the first time, I thought, 'Will I be able to do it?' 'Will I?' 'Will I be able to be satisfied with the result?' I had fun after all Yes, I did Frankly, when I got my part for the first time, I thought, 'Bang Chan and Felix could do this part well enough' 'But they gave me a chance to try' And it was in English I thought a lot about it to express my own character Since I turned 20, I've been facing new challenges The song "Chronosaurus" is about the fear of time In this relentless city, people are afraid of time and being chased by it We compared time to a beast or a monster,
a scary creature "Chronosaurus" 'Chronos' in Greek means god of time 'Kronosaurus' was one of the most fearful dinosaurs in Australia We put those 2 words together and made a new word "Chronosaurus" 'I'm going after my dream' 'But actually I'm being chased by time' 'Sometimes I'd like to take a rest', 'but I can't, because I'm running out of time' is the message I heard a lot of STAYs wanted to hear this song Finally, it came out It's "Broken Compass" I thought this song has to be in <Clé 1 : MIROH> album Because "Broken Compass" is also about going somewhere new
I wanted to keep the original song's message, feelings and emotions but I also wanted to make its scale grander So I arranged the song additionally with the composer The song has a depth I could imagine sailing in the open sea I broadened the sound in order to convey the message like 'We can go everywhere' Actually, when I was listening to "Mixtape", I thought the melody I made sounds monotonous So I asked Bang Chan what I should do about it I also read some books to improve it Then I wrote the final lyrics It went well and I got attached to it
Every member participated in writing and composing "Mixtape" It contains our real story the most Because it was originally from 3RACHA, It might not be new to some fans, but many people loved it and I'm so proud of it I'll work harder so I can bring a better "Mixtape" The title track, "MIROH" represents <Clé 1 : MIROH> album It describes Stray Kids well, who got into a wild and harsh MIROH with ambition It'll show our powerful energy, aspiration and positive look Many fans will wonder what "MIROH" means We made up that word Because we don't know what it's like, we used a Korean word 'MIRO' meaning 'maze'
Depending on how we behave, the place can be 'Hell', or 'Heaven' So we put 'H' at the end of 'MIRO' and made a word "MIROH" When we were working on this song, we were thinking of a maze that looks like a jungle The song sounds grand and sophisticated, it has also sounds in the forest I think it'll be the attractive part of "MIROH" One dance move? It means 'We're strong and powerful, 'but composed' It's a performance with a story It's a scary new world like a jungle We don't know what to do in the jungle We don't know what's in the jungle But since we're all nine together we try to have confidence and You know, we just think... You know what Let's do this!
We actually just go through it Anything that comes in our way The song, "My Pace" gave me a feeling that I deliver energy to somebody The song, "I am YOU" showed flashy steps and hand motions "MIROH" is different It holds its energy, and emanates inner energy by choreography at the same time We were inspired by Bang Chan's idea, 'HAKA' 'HAKA' is a ceremonial dance in New Zealand Its vigorous movements encourage team members Because we get into a new world, we thought HAKA movements would show our confidence well You will notice an outstanding part If you haven't seen it such like that, you'll think 'What's that?' When we were making the music video of the song, the staff there started copying our dance moves
So we got confidence that people would love it Onstage or audience together Everyone can have fun together It's more... It's the side we want to show Felix played an important role in making of "MIROH" Felix did a good job I'm doing my best to show my powerful moves My part has a mellow melody, but the dance moves are powerful Like Felix, Bang Chan did a good job, too Please look forward to the Australian members Look forward to me, too Bang Chan made this song and he's doing his job nicely Bang Chan knows how to express the song He is the crucial part of the performance There are some parts that make him look sexy and I'm looking forward to it Like this
I hope you do it well, Bang Chan Let's try one more time, 5, 6, 7, 8 It looks good Hold like this? - What kind of version is that? - Take a guess Sexy? Bang Chan equals sexy Like this? Like this? Okay, let's go like this Move like this Let's try You two, in the back, don't discuss How does it work? Like this? Come on Is this sexy? Hyunjin, stand in the middle Go to the side Hyunjin, please sit down Good Let's go Your legs are... It looks dynamic Let's make it a new trend Music and performance met under the name of "MIROH" In order to create a synergy effect, we studied hard Because we make songs ourselves, we consider the performance going well with them
There are a lot of parts stressing trap style We wanted to make that part into performance So we created 'domino moves' Domino moves can't be completed with only 1 person's effort So we're practicing really harder than ever Normally we practice dancing from 15:00 to 22:00 But we've been practicing till dawn nowadays Our MV (His new favourite ice cream) - I woke up too early - I thought I couldn't (Stage costume fitting day) Look at Bang Chan's hair style No His hair style looks like Malfoy's (Malfoy Chan) (Individual practice time) ("Victory Song" practice day 1) We're all here Wow, that's awesome Let's go (Precious dinner time) What do you think about the "Victory Song" choreography? - It's so cool - It's awesome (I.N loves "Victory Song" choreography) Especially, pre-hook part
Tell me your opinion, Mr. HAN, the composer of the song I was so surprised that you guys are in sync (Malfoy and mustard are twins?) - Really? - Yes They were like twins Good, let's eat quickly and practice till dawn (Practice again) (No rest for Felix) You can do it (Day 1, the first shooting for monitoring) Where am I going? (Sorry about my mistake) Sorry about that - I can't believe it - He's the culprit (Malfoy Chan is the culprit) I wanted you to find 'YOU', I wonder whether you found it or not I hope you did We haven't found the answer yet We're entering a new world to find the answer Please take a look how well we manage it and how we can survive From above, you can find a way out in a maze Some people who already got out of it might think it's easy
But we wanted to show our ambition entering a new world If there's a STAY who hesitates to challenge I hope our album encourages you to be brave We put a lot of great songs We're practicing very hard March 25th, it's our debut day We're going to open the door and show you the real beginning of Stray Kids We'll be with STAY, we'll show you everything Stray Kids Everywhere All Around the World Please support our new startline Bye I'm looking forward to it
