Stray Kids made its Japanese debut in March 2020 with the album “SKZ2020,” a collection of the band’s hit songs that included Japanese versions of three tracks. The band’s Blu-ray, “Stray Kids 2nd World Tour ‘Maniac’ Encore in Japan,” released on Feb. 7, topped Oricon Albums Chart’s weekly DVD/Blu-ray rankings and weekly music Blu-ray rankings as of Monday.

The band recently won the Best Group/Duo award at the People’s Choice Awards, and the Best Performance and Artist of the Year awards at the Hanteo Music Awards.

It will also contend for the K-pop Artist of the Year and K-pop Song of the Year awards at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards.
