During Mnet‘s Kingdom finale, Stray Kids performed their new track “WOLFGANG,” which caught fans’ attention for many reasons. Not only was the performance powerful and dramatic, but fans couldn’t stop talking about leader Bang Chan after he went shirtless during the performance.
A few days after the show finished, Bang Chan was back with his regular broadcast called Chan’s Room and spoke all about the competition and that performance.
A fan asked Bang Chan if he had lost weight recently, and he replied that it probably looked that way due to the preparations he did for the performance.
Because it was the first time for me to do that on stage, I wanted to show the best performance, so I tried to take care of myself a bit. For example, controlling my intake of fluids, I tried dietary meals too, and I tried to get a tan.
— Bang Chan
When it came to watching the group’s performance, there was no denying that Bang Chan was very shy looking at himself. Even before the video started playing, he was apprehensive.
I really can’t watch it. I can’t monitor myself. I’m really bad at that and this one especially.
— Bang Chan
Once the video started, although he seemed shy throughout hiding behind a cushion, he couldn’t even look when it got to his own part.
Even after the video ended, Bang Chan exclaimed, “I can’t watch it. Who made Chan naked? Who was that?” Fans responded, asking Bang Chan to watch his part, but he kept repeating, “I don’t think I should watch it again. I won’t watch it.”
There is no denying that the entire performance of “WOLFGANG” was a work of art where all the members put all their blood, sweat, and tears into the stage to end Kingdom on a high note.
