K-pop group Stray Kids aims to increase their growing popularity in the US by making their rounds on the country’s TV programs.  

After making an appearance on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan on January 27 (local time), the eight-member boy group will be making their way to Good Day New York on FOX5 on the following day. 

Stray Kids have been highly sought after by popular media outlets ahead of the North American leg of their upcoming world tour, which will be kicking off on the 29th. “We’re so happy that we can greet the public on television before our concert tour. We think it gives us the best opportunity to make our music and story known. Because it’s live TV, we think we’ll be more nervous when we get on set. We’ll be working hard while we get ready so that we don’t make any mistakes, so we hope that our fans will show us a lot of support,” the group commented.  

Live with Kelly and Ryan, a talk show frequented by Hollywood stars, has been one of the most beloved programs on television since its first show in 1983. 

The group will be doing a live performance of “Levanter,” a song from their English-language single album, Step Out of Clé, which dropped on the 24th. 

Good Day New York, the morning talk show visited by famous guests from the world over, will be inviting Stray Kids on to the show for the second time following their first appearance in May 2019. 

The fact that the group received their second invitation from the show less than a year after their first appearance confirms the high level of interest for the promising K-pop group. 

Stray Kids will be kicking off the District 9: Unlock world tour in New York on January 29. The tour will take the group to 21 regions for 24 shows, which will include a stop in Atlanta on January 31, Dallas on February 2, Chicago on the 5th, Miami on the 7th, Phoenix on the 9th, San Jose on the 13th, and Los Angeles on the 16th. After the conclusion of the American leg of the tour, District 9: Unlock will be moving on to Southeast Asia, Europe, and Japan.
