After seeing this announcement, here are some of STAY’s international comments:
“JYP never notices how much effort they put into it, Mexico is one of the countries with the most streams and he always ignores it?”
“why are they already showing stages for encores WHAT HAPPENED IN EUROPE? WHAT HAPPENED IN UK? WHAT ???”
“Tbh it’s a bit sad that even Europe didn’t have a tour date, I’m flying with you, but I was hoping that they would at least go to Europe. Anyway, let’s just wait for next year.”
European fans are the loudest on social media as they have set a record “far absent from many of the world’s K-pop tours.” Additionally, European STAYs couldn’t help but express their disappointment as they also want to see Stray Kids take the stage in their hometown.

The first is Europe, StrayKids is very popular and we have many stays all over the EU
The second is South America, with great popularity among Brazilians and Mexicans
