In the most recent episode of Stray Kids‘ YouTube series “2 Kids Room,” members Lee Know and I.N were paired up to talk while the other members watched from behind a screen and added their own thoughts.
Lee Know and I.N got along well in their conversation, they both were very comfortable with each other.
But their members seemed to be at a loss for how to explain the duo.
Changbin started by asking what this particular duo was, and Felix offered that it felt like a new combination.
It didn’t seem like any of the members knew what Lee Know and I.N talked about when they were together.
Seungmin was able to offer that Lee Know and I.N both have similar lifestyles in that they both tend to wake up early.
While Han and Hyunjin added that the two have similar personalities in they both are “stubborn and clearly speak their minds.”
But then Changbin had to add that both of them have a soft spot, despite their toughness and bravery.
And all the members seemed to agree that this combination of softness and toughness is what makes them an interesting duo.
Because Lee Know cares for I.N, their maknae (youngest member), but doesn’t try to show that he does.
And similarly, I.N actively avoids trying to upset Lee Know or tease him too much, unlike many other members.
Changbin still focuses on Lee Know and I.N, explaining that when another member is on edge, I.N will try to comfort them by resting his hand on their shoulder.
Alternatively, Lee Know, who rarely starts conversations, will try to initiate a conversation with the upset member to try and make them feel better.
And since realizing Lee Know and I.N clearly care about each other and look after each other in their own ways, Changbin adds that most of Stray Kids are like that with two notable exceptions.
Changbin then continues by saying that except for Bang Chan and Felix, “our members just aren’t that expressive.”
Bang Chan and Felix try to deny it at first, asking if they aren’t like that too. With Felix clarifying that it probably depends on the situation.
Changbin stays firm to his belief, that in general, “everyone has that lack of expression for the people they like.”
While Bang Chan and Felix “are good at expressing [their] affection.”
And that “the rest, including [Changbin], are more reserved.”
But he continues on that he likes “2 Kids Room” because it gives all the members a more genuine chance to convey their affection for one another through their friendly, often deep, conversations.
