Stray Kids became famous after JYP Entertainment announced their new reality survival program in August 2017. The group's debut music video for the song “Hellevator” was released prior to its broadcast on October 17.

Lee Know and Felix were initially dropped from the group, but were added back to the final lineup of nine. JYPE released the group's pre-debut extended play (EP), Mixtape, at the same time as the group's official website went live.

Seven of the songs on the album were co-written and co-composed by the band members.

Do Stray Kids Write Their Own Songs?

This idol group produces their own music, with most of the members taking part in songwriting, composition and arranging.

After their hit song ‘God's Menu' was released, their music has been seen as belonging to the unique ‘mala taste genre'. Their album ‘Noeasy' was inspired by the genre called ‘noise music'.

What is Stray Kids's Net Worth?

In reality, we will never know how much money K-Pop stars make. However, it can be calculated by considering all of the many facets of their operations.

The estimated $30 million net worth of Stray Kids includes $2 to $3 million for each member.

Since Stray Kids are involved in other endeavors besides music, it's probable that their total net worth exceeds $48.29 Million. Stray Kids are thought to have made $6.02 million in a single year.
