One topic of conversation between Stray Kids’ Han and I.N that most fans would be familiar with is their seemingly never-ending debate about an infamous kiss. The debate was whether or not Han kissed I.N on the cheek and if I.N returned it with a cheek kiss of his own while they were both trainees.
The issue is so familiar to fans that some even predicted that the topic would come up in the most recent episode of “2 Kids Room.”

Han first brought up the time he kissed I.N on the cheek in a solo VLIVE, but he confronted I.N about it in a precursor series to “2 Kids Room” that was released in 2020 called “Two Kids Room+1.”
Because he felt that I.N was lying, as the maknae vehemently denies it ever happened, Han brought it up in front of Changbin.
Han firmly stated that “I, for sure, gave you a kiss when we were trainees, but you insisted I didn’t.”
In response, I.N admitted that Han did kiss him but said he never kissed Han.
Han tried then to tell the story in detail, saying that I.N and he were in a vocal practice room playing piano when he asked I.N for a kiss. And he insisted I.N gave him a kiss!
But I.N still denied it, saying that not only does he not remember this ever even happening but that he doesn’t “kiss just anybody” since he hates being touchy.
Still, Han insisted that he “wasn’t just anybody.”
Since the issue was left unresolved in “Two Kids Room+1,” it unsurprisingly once more came up in the recent “2 Kids Room,” where Han and I.N sat down and talked to each other.
I.N, ironically, mentions the cheek kiss at the very beginning of the episode. He jokes that the producer dressed him in red for the episode with Han because of their nickname “the Bbobbos” (kisses/pecks).
But Han brings the topic up again later in the episode by saying that although the two always quickly make up after arguing… He’s “still upset about one thing.”
You won’t admit you gave me a kiss. I remember it clearly.
Unlike in the other video, I.N doesn’t bother to argue this time. He just insists that he really doesn’t remember it if it did happen.
But then he jokingly adds that the members, who are watching the conversation and adding their own thoughts, “can rack their brains about it.”
Seungmin and Changbin each explain the situation to Bang Chan and Lee Know, and Hyunjin and Felix, respectively, before they share their input.
Hyunjin immediately shares that he believes “it probably happened in [Han’s] dreams.” Which Changbin also agrees was very likely.
But Seungmin offers that he does remember that Han and I.N “used to secretly take selfies and hang out in the vocal lesson room.” Which does fit Han’s in-depth recounting of the event.
And at the end of the episode, Han tries to bring up the topic one more time by agreeing that I.N can “remember it as [he] will.”
While Han will “remember it as [his] one-sided love.”
And although Han tries to get I.N to agree to do a live video on June 14th, which he calls “Kiss Day,” I.N refuses to say he’ll give Han a cheek kiss, even if their fans request it.
Instead, I.N offers his own solution: he promises to kiss Han’s cheek “before [he dies].”
And Han admits that since he would be getting one cheek kiss from I.N, that’s fine with him.
So although fans may never know the true story of what happened when they were trainees, at least the two seemed to have decided on a solution. Do you believe Han or I.N? Check out their full video below:
