Stray Kids‘ I.N is an adult, but to many fans he’ll always be “baby bread,” just a little more mature… his live stream with Bang Chan proved it.
Recently Bang Chan held his regular “Chan’s Room” live show, but it was crashed by his younger member I.N who came in as his own song “Maknae On Top” was playing.
While there, the duo asked STAYs for song recommendations for spring. They were reasonably surprised when one fan suggested “Red Lights,” a song that has recently regained attention from STAYs.
Though it was released as a duet by Bang Chan and Hyunjin in 2021, the group performed it as an 8-member version at their recent MANIAC concerts. The group may have even spoiled the performance prior to the show, adding to the intrigue.
The song is on the suggestive side, so Bang Chan and I.N questioned if it was an appropriate song for spring. Bang Chan proposed that since the song “gets hot”, maybe it’s actually better for winter.
I.N was unconvinced, and said there are “some other times for this song,” but when Bang Chan asked what he meant by that, I.N said he didn’t know.
Bang Chan continued to press I.N, who then simply said, “It’s a song for MV.”
As Bang Chan accurately noted, “Our I.N has grown up a lot.” And then, “The older and the younger brothers, we are the same.”
When they continued to think about it, Bang Chan remembered that the 8-member version of the song hadn’t been played yet for fans outside of the concerts.
And while they said they could play it, Bang Chan decided he would rather tease STAYs instead.
I.N also agreed that since he’s “baby bread,” it would be better to play the song when he wasn’t there.
Yet, some fans aren’t buying it considering he was, of course, part of the OT8 version at the concerts.

Fans couldn’t let the moment go that easily. One fan commented, “I.N, what are you thinking?”
He assured fans that he wasn’t thinking anything.
Still, fans will admit that I.N has grown up a lot. While he’s still cute…

I.N’s also a professional performer. Check out how he reacted to ripping his pants while onstage during Stray Kids’ recent concerts. Baby bread is no longer a baby.
