Yet, while most artists would be jumping up and down, the members of Stray Kids seemed very confused and were looking at each other like they didn’t know what to do, especially when Bang Chan and I.N started to get up.

Of course, netizens immediately noticed their confusion.

Yet, it seems like there might actually have been an explanation for all the confusion of the members after their names were read out. After the event, Changbin chatted with fans and shared his thoughts, actually revealing that they initially didn’t know their names had been called.

Really lolol the song was playing but we didn’t know it was us. We didn’t know we were being called because we couldn’t hear well..lolol.

Of course, it was a huge achievement that the members deserved, and considering the atmosphere and noise, it wasn’t surprising that the members didn’t manage to hear their names.
